Shorty – Seaside, CA

ShortyShorty is an awesome 1.5yo guy who was likely born with a spinal issue that was not discovered nor treated when he lost the use of his hind legs about 8 months ago. Once he arrived in rescue, he started physical, laser and water therapy to strengthen the muscles in his hind legs. He buzzes around in his donated wheelchair (thank you, Jodi Morimoto!). Shorty is about 45 to 50lbs…he is the sweetest guy who isn’t letting a slight disability stop his partying ways. His playstyle is rough so he is good with larger dogs on a limited basis (he gets overstimulated). He might be good with cats as their company seem to relax him a bit. Please stay tuned for news on this most wonderful guy!

Gonzo – Sacramento, CA

The arrival of a baby proved to be bittersweet for Gonzo’s family. This 7yo guy adores the baby and always brings his toys and gently places them down next to the baby. When the baby developed rashes, it was determined that he was allergic to dogs and cats. Gonzo had to spend his days in the yard and his nights in the garage. He was getting depressed so he would spend a bit of time with relatives and friends but his owner wants him to have a stable schedule and not very people get the nuances of the breed. His best friend is the neighbors English Bull Dog and the 6 and 8yo nieces in his family. He likes to chase the neighborhood cats out of his yard. Gonzo is about 50lbs; and he is obedience, house, crate and leash trained. A foster/foster-to-adopt spot (even an interim one) is needed within the next week as the baby seems to be developing respiratory issues.

RockyBedtimeNameRocky (formerly Harry) is returning to our Rescue as his owner’s new husband cannot overcome his fear of dogs despite numerous therapy sessions. Rocky is now almost 3 years old and he weighs about 45lbs. Although he got along with a small dog in his prior home, he’s been a bit grumpy towards the dogs in his interim foster spot. Rocky had a bit of a limp when he first arrived in our Rescue. An ortho review showed an old injury to his hip that has healed on its own. Surgery was not recommended and Rocky has been doing well with joint supplements. Rocky is crate, leash and house trained. If anyone’s interested in fostering him, we certainly wouldn’t mind! His ideal foster home is one where he’s the only pet so that we can determine his boundaries with other dogs and if he has any pain in his hip. Thanks for any consideration! ~Suz

Rocky’s original album:

Roxy – Stockton


2yo Roxy is great with dogs and with cats that don’t beat her up.  She is WONDERFUL with the 6yo autistic son in her family.  Her owner is a single dad who is finding it difficult to care for his son and a pet.  Roxy is 25-30lbs; she is crate and leash trained.  She’s been having accidents but it may be from the stress of having her quality time greatly curtailed.

TKO – San Francisco


TKO flunked all of his shelter tests as he was terrified  in the shelter.  He’s been polite with calm dogs but has been reactive to the ones that snarf at him or have a higher/nervous energy level.  We found a big sweetheart that can redirect when stressed but he’ll wind down quickly if calming signals are given.  We’re giving TKO ample time to decompress and adapting to a home environment before we start to gently push his buttons.  TKO is about 3 years old; he weighs in at about 65-70 pounds.  He loves riding in cars and sitting on swings.

Please stay tuned for TKO’s progress!

Diesel – Concord

DieselThis sweet boy is about 3 years old; he is good with other dogs, cats and young children. Unfortunately, his foster-to-adopt spots keep falling through. Anyone have room for this sweetie? He is crate, house and leash trained.  He has been great with the older female Bull Terrier in his current foster spot.  Diesel will be neutered in the next few weeks; and he will be Available shortly after.
