Dallas
Photos
Dallas is a very sweet and curious 2-yr old, red Golden Retriever mix.   He enjoys his walks and needs a little bit of leash training, but has improved a lot since spending time with our volunteers. He is good with other dogs. We don’t know about cats as he hasn’t been tested. He has been described by a volunteer as “a combination of an independent spirit and wanting attention.”  With that said, Dallas is a very happy, lovable boy who enjoys being with people.  He has a typical Golden temperament – very loving and sweet. He doesn’t know any basic commands but that can be taught if someone is willing to work with him. He has an average activity level – he doesn’t require a huge space to run and play, although he probably wouldn’t object. If you take him on a nice walk, he’d be just fine.

Dallas is very good with other dogs of all sizes.   He's great with a little dog and quite mannerly with them.   He loves attention and doing so much better on his leash manners.   I would say this boy is a real jewel and oh so sweet.  He’d be perfect for a home looking for a buddy to hang out with.

Jeanie

Jeanie is a very sweet 8 year old girl who loves to go for her walks.   She is good with other large dogs on her walks but she should be an only dog in her forever home.   She would be much happier.   Good to walk with her buddies then go home.   She does bark at small dogs on her walks, so we have restricted her intros with them.   Her perfect forever home would have no cats, no small dogs, single dog home.   Jeanie is not a dog that can go for long hikes but neighborhood walks would be great.   She appears to be housebroken and is good in the car.  Likes people and enjoys attention but not demanding.    She is currently on medicine for her arthritis, but she is by no means a dog that can’t enjoy her time out on her walks.   She also loves her tennis ball and returns it for more play.

Kipling

Kipling is a great and very handsome 7-yr old.   He came in to rescue in terrible condition but after time with us, he has gained weight, his coat is GORGEOUS, and he is still looking for his forever home.   We have discovered his real name, Oso, and he responds to that with obedience commands like sit, down, shake, come, heel.   He had been a much loved dog at one time.  He enjoys spending time with our volunteers, going for nice easy walks - he now has a bounce in his walk and loves the time on the walk "checking out all the bushes".    He is housebroken, loves to sleep on his dog bed, is great taking his treats with a gentle mouth,  and is still looking for his forever home.   The perfect home would be one with a single owner and no other dogs - he is fine with dogs on his walks but prefers to not have to share attention with another dog in the home.  He does not like other dogs running up in to his face on walks but once he has met them, he very quietly goes off walking with them.   He enjoyed meeting my own dog and she thought he was a very handsome boy.  He would do great all day while his owner is working and really prefers to sleep on his dog bed and wait for someone to come home.   A couple pats on the head and he is totally happy with that.   Then the owner could make dinner, watch TV and if Oso wants to, he can come watch TV with her/him.  He's not a huggy, grabby dog, just a great companion and a pat on the head makes him very happy.

Laura Ann
Photos
Laura Ann is a beautiful, sweet and gentle girl who was surrendered to us by her owner. Although, well loved, her care came to be too much financial responsibility. As we all know, basic food, grooming and preventive care for dogs is not inexpensive. 

Laura Ann is a a sweet, snuggly shadow dog. Her big, fluffy paws will come thumping towards the door the second she hears you and will greet you with an enthusiastic tail wag and a plushy toy in her mouth. She is a true lady and exhibits excellent manners both in the house and riding in a car and she can entertain herself and behave calmly when left alone. She's also a sucker for a chest rub and quickly lays down to submit herself and her shiny golden coat and doe eyes to pets. This dog shows nothing but unconditional love to humans. She, sadly, can't say the same for all canine friends given some baggage from her past. Other dogs stress her out and she exhibits some fearful behavior while looking for constant reassurance from her person. She would be best as the only doggie in your life and will need training to help soothe her anxiety about other dogs on walks. Her previous owner told us that she may be scared of cats of first but then reacts kindly towards them, especially towards kittens. We also have been told that she is sensitive to fireworks and thunder. She is a total sweetheart and is looking for a family that will give her the stability she deserves. She is about 4 years old and is 70 pounds of pure doggie love.

Miles

Miles is a 2 year old boy who is now looking for his forever home.   He is currently in training to work with his leash manners and is making great progress.   He came to us with this issue and with professional help, he is improving.  His forever home should be one with no children, preferable a male owner as he seems to relate to men better than women in his previous home.   He is good with other dogs has lived with a female companion, has lived with a cat but will chase it if it runs, will not hurt.   Miles is afraid of loud noises and sudden loud noises so no homes where he would be exposed to them and take in to note that on the 4th, he should be removed from the source.   He can, however, be soothed but they still scare him.   He does well in the yard and does not dig or climb out.   Had previously been a yard dog but has been in a home recently and is housebroken now.  He had good manners in the home also.  His forever home needs to be committed to continuing his leash training.   

Miles is great with other dogs and, as you can see, he is very good with little ones also.   He also had previously lived with a cat but if it would run, he would chase but not harm.   Just the fun of the game.   He is doing very well with his training and knows when he is in "working mode".  He's ready for his forever home.

Ollie
Photos
Meet Ollie! This very affectionate red purebred boy wants desperately to spend time with people and soak up all the affection he can get. He is about 8 years old and very recently came from a shelter out in the Inland Empire. Ollie landed in that shelter suffering from damaged, worn teeth, eye infections, and weighed in at only 56 lbs. He was covered with fleas and a resulting dermatitis with scabs everywhere, and a heart murmur. He has a hematoma on one ear flap, the result of years of untreated ear infections. This boy has obviously been completely neglected and even so still has a heart of Gold. 

Ollie appears to be housebroken as he never soils his dog run at the vet hospital where he’s currently being treated. He just loves people and wants to be close to them. Once neutered Ollie will be looking for a home where he can enjoy life with his humans who are home most of the time. We don’t know how Ollie will do with young children or cats so a home with adults, older children and maybe even a calm dog would be the best match for him. 

Once Ollie recovers from his neuter surgery he will be looking for a foster or forever home. If you have an interest in helping Ollie, please apply online and a home visit volunteer will contact you shortly.

Pippa - ADOPTION PENDING
Photos
Pippa is a 5 year old girl who is now looking for her forever home.   She is housebroken, friendly, loves everyone she meets.   Pippa rides well in the car, and is generally good with other dogs.  Her perfect forever home would be one with no little “critters” – i.e. cat, bunny, small furry things.   She has a high prey drive for little animals.   While she is great with other dogs, her perfect home would have her as a single dog, or with an older male dog.   She tends to want to be the boss if there is another female dog in the home.    She is familiar with using a dog door and does not require someone to be home during the day, so a working couple would do well as her forever home.    She is currently on seizure medication due to our observance of 2 mild seizures upon intake in to rescue.   She is on medication and doing well with the current dosage.

Stanley Sweetness
Photos
What a story this boy has so far!   Animal control found this boy in a tent set up by a homeless person.  He was caught munching on some marijuana plants so the shelter administered medications to counter the toxicitity of the cannabis.  Stanley did very well with the treatment and had no side effects or damage from the drugs.  

Living on the streets did not allow for this boy to get any medical care as he was not neutered, overweight, had ear infections, some dental tarter, hair loss and fleas, and tested positive for hypothyroidism.  Now neutered and getting medication for his ear infections and hypothyroidism, along with a few baths, Stanley is feeling and looking better.  He does have some arthritis but we have also started him on some anti-inflammatories to help with the stiffness.  Once the medication kicks in and becomes therapeutic, Stanley will be able to loose some weight which will help with his arthritic issues.  

We have discovered that he likes to play and fetch the ball and will bring it back and drop at your feet.  His house manners have been great and he likes to go for walks..  He seems to love the indoors and he does some communicating through snorts, quite hilarious.  He is getting along fine with his foster brother and he does not react much to cats.  He loves to ride in the car and will sit and just look out the back window the entire time.  Of course, his favorite thing to do is eat, (typical!).  But, he will need a home that will be diligent in his weight loss journey so that his joints don’t suffer.

TC

TC is an adorable, smaller, Golden mix, who is 4 years old.  He is housebroken, has been crate trained, rides well in the car, and LOVES his walks.  He is healthy, happy, friendly, and loves everyone he meets.   He enjoys walking with a buddy and while he may bark at another dog on his walk, once he meets them, he's their buddy also.  He would love to have a yard to play in and his favorite pastime is "bush diving" and lizard chasing.  When he goes out for his walks, he's constantly looking for critters, bugs, lizards, just everything in the bushes so he can try to get them.

TC's perfect forever home would be with a person who loves to take him on walks  - no hiking but nice walks to check out the neighborhood. He would be best as a single dog in the home but he’s okay walking with another friendly dog.  No cats due to his wanting to chase everything.  He is friendly with older children but he has not been around small children, so visiting older children would be fine. He has done fine in his previous home being alone during the day, so with proper access to outside and a secure yard, he would do well.

TC is happy, healthy, playful, and looking for his forever home.
