TINY TIM

3 Month Old Male

CHIHUAHUA MIX

Tiny Tim weighs 3 lbs now, and is expected to be 10 lbs or less when full grown. He has been started on crate training, but will need to be housebroken and taken to obedience class. Tiny Tim gets along well with other small dogs and should be fine with cats and respectful children. He is neutered, microchipped, dewormed, and current on vaccinations. He's got a funny looking back foot (see photo) that looks like some bones are missing in his toes. It is a small birth defect that doesn't slow him down in the slightest, and there is nothing medically to do for it as far as we can tell. His adoption fee is $260.

GIGI

3 Year Old Female

YORKIE MIX

Gigi is fully grown at about 7 lbs. She has a great personality, lots of energy and also is very snuggly. She enjoys running and walks, is great in the car AND gets along with most cats and dogs. Gigi also gives kisses and does not hesitate to kiss when your mouth is open! Seriously, this little girl is a bundle of fun and as sweet as they come. Gigi is housebroken and uses a dog door. She is too tiny for rough and tumble kids and needs to be watched because she will take off very fast out of the front door if allowed to. Gigi is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, and ready for a family to love!

ROCKY

4 Year Old Male

ENGLISH BULLDOG

Rocky is fully grown at about 60 lbs. He is crate trained and housebroken. He has had some home obedience training, but could stand to go to an actual obedience class. Rocky loves to go for walks, but will pull on leash. He is great for his bath, riding in the car and receiving attention from anybody who will give it to him. Rocky could easily live as an only dog or with a non-marshmallow female dog that’s larger than he is. (He doesn’t eat little dogs, but he is too much for them with his play style.) He is a medium snorer and only drools when it’s time for his meal or if he’s just had a drink of water.

Fostered in Hayward, CA - Adopt by appointment only.

MISTY

3 Month Old Female

TERRIER MIX

Misty is currently 5 lbs and is expected to be a long-legged 10-15 lbs when fully grown. She is full of energy, playful, and loves attention from people. Because she is a bit of a rabble-rouser, she would do best with kids over 10 and other dogs bigger than she is. When inquiring, please be prepared to discuss the obedience classes you’ll be attending and your chosen method of housebreaking.

TRIS

4 Year Old Female

GERMAN SHEPHERD MIX

Tris is fully grown at the perfect size of about 35 lbs. She is a quiet and devoted girl who very much likes the company of her people. Tris is smart and would make a great candidate for agility training. She is leash trained and knows basic commands but would still benefit from attending an obedience class. Tris is good with smaller dogs and dogs her own size. She is housebroken and knows how to use a dog door. Tris is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and dewormed. She is social, but can get overwhelmed in crowds and new situations; therefore, we believe she will do best in an adult home.

GRIZWOLD

5yr Year Old Male

ENGLISH BULLDOG

Grizwold aka Grizz is on the small side, nice and compact at about 50 lbs. His favorite thing is riding shotgun in the car, and he fits perfectly! He will even load himself into the car for you, so no heavy lifting needed! Grizz is a laid-back boy who just wants to lay around froggy-style in his humble abode. He is a big baby as evidenced by his suckling on his dog bed to lull himself to sleep. He has a gentle snore and is fairly clean with his water bowl. Grizz has shown to be great with both cats and respectful children. He’ll hang out peacefully with other dogs, but does not show much interest in playing. He is a moderate-maintenance bulldog. He’s great on leash and can go on walks as long as one whole block! Aside from the normal cleaning of ears and nasal folds, he needs a grain-free diet to keep his skin healthy, and needs eyedrops twice a day to treat KCS or "dry eye."

DAISY

6+ Year Old Female

SHIH TZU

Special Needs

Daisy arrived at the shelter in quite a disastrous state! What little hair she had was matted; her ears stunk bad enough to knock you over; her eyes were cloudy and crusted over; several teeth are missing; she was so covered in fleas, her skin was bright red from irritation and infection. To add insult to injury, the vet found a polyp in one of Daisy’s ears - yikes!

The pictures show Daisy’s progression from arriving in the shelter, getting her first bath/haircut, and then after about 3 weeks of care in her foster home. We’re thrilled to report that Daisy is responding beautifully to medicated baths, ear rinse and drops, antibiotics, and eye drops. She is definitely feeling much better, and is showing us her full-on adorable and sassy personality.

Daisy still needs a few more weeks of care before the vet will declare her ready for adoption. She is already spayed, but we need to raise money for her current treatment as well as eventual surgery to have the ear polyp removed and have her teeth cleaned. The estimate range is $950 to $1200! Please help with your tax-deductible donation so Daisy can get the surgery she needs to make her ready for adoption. This Paypal button will take no fees, so 100% of your donation will go straight to Daisy’s vet bill. Thank you so much!

SHELBY

2 Year Old Female

GREYHOUND

Shelby came to us with five other dogs that were confiscated from their owner for severe neglect. The dogs were fed sufficiently but were kept outdoors in a filthy, muddy pit with a makeshift lean-to for shelter. They were hugely infested with fleas and other parasites and had not received veterinary care - even for a broken leg in one case. In spite of Shelby's rough start, her initial reservation turns to her being affectionate, bouncy and loving attention from people. Because Shelby was not kept as a pet, she did not get formal obedience training but has shown she is a quick learner. She is crate trained, walks on a leash and is learning what it’s like to live indoors – on a soft, warm bed for the first time.

Shelby's adopter will need to be knowledgeable and experienced with sight hounds. She will need a home without small animals, including cats, rabbits, birds, etc. She should do fine with a medium or large dog. Shelby is now parasite-free, spayed, microchipped and current on vaccinations. She weighs 71 pounds.

BENNY

4 Year Old Male

LHASA APSO

Benny is 18 lbs of pure Lhasa at its finest! He is friendly but not demonstrative. He is a spirited boy who is devoted to his personal human(s). He is wary of strangers at first meeting but warms up before too long and is a great watchdog! Benny is currently fostered with 3 female dogs and, while he does fine with other dogs, he has enough of "Lhasa-tude" to where he really should be the only dog. Benny did great for his grooming and rides beautifully perched on a passenger's lap while in the car. Benny also knows how to sit up like a prairie dog! He can be mouthy, but has exhibited good bite inhibition. For this reason, he will be placed in an adult-only household. Benny would make a great road companion for a traveling couple. I have fostered for over 15 years and have never seen a dog so enjoy his car rides!

PUPPIES

They will be about 10lbs when fully grown. They have been spayed, neutered vaccinated and microchipped. No toddlers please.

FLOYD

8 Month Old Male

GERMAN SHEPHERD

Floyd is currently 45 lbs and is expected to be around 55-65 lbs when full grown. He is leash trained and knows "sit" and "place" but make no mistake - he's got energy to burn. This dog is wicked smart and needs an adopter who enjoys obedience training, which will give Floyd mental exercise as well as physical. Floyd gets along with dogs big and small, but is likely too much for cats. He rides well in the car and is not a problem barker. He is not a big leg-lifter, but is too young to be trusted loose in the house by himself. Experience with this or a similar breed is a plus.

ZOEY

8 Month Old Female

UNKNOWN

Zoey is a typical, well adjusted young dog. Her true breed is unknown but looks lab/boxer/dalmatian, she has the cutest under bite. She is playful, outgoing and friendly. She is housebroken and loves to play with other dogs. She can get very playful and might be too much for a smaller dog. Zoey knows some basic commands and has a great start in life, is well behaved in the house, a great passenger in the car and for the most part quite mellow for an 8 month old puppy. She could use some formal obedience classes to bond with her new family and continue her learning. She walks well on a leash and knows sit. She should be fine with older children (no toddlers) she is still a puppy that jumps and plays. She seems to be ok with cats but may chase them if given the opportunity. Zoey is up to date on vaccinations and microchipped. Adoption fee: $200.00

THEO

1.5 Year Old Male

TIBETAN TERRIER/LHASA APSO MIX

Theo is fully grown at about 13 lbs. He was fantastic for grooming and is a sweet dog all-around. Theo is crate trained and walks on leash. He appears to be housebroken, but we have not given that a thorough test. He is playful, but not hyper, and should be fine with other dogs, cats and respectful children. Theo's coat will need frequent brushing/combing and will need to be tended to by a groomer on at least a monthly basis to keep him from getting matted. Please note that he does shed slightly so would probably not be ideal for those who are allergic to dogs. Come meet him at our pet fair Saturday.

CADDY

8 Month Old Male

LHASA APSO MIX

Caddy is fully grown at about 11 lbs. We're not sure about his breed mix, but he was great for grooming and is very sweet, albeit shy. Caddy is crate trained and may be housebroken. (We have not given the housebreaking part a thorough test.) He is playful, but not hyper, and should be fine with other dogs, cats and respectful children. Caddy's coat will need frequent brushing/combing and will need to be tended to by a groomer on at least a monthly basis to keep him from getting matted. Please note that he does shed slightly so would probably not be ideal for those who are allergic to dogs. Come meet him at our pet fair Saturday.

Why are there only a few dogs on this site and
most of them are adopted already?

Many of the dogs we get are not ready for adoption right away. Only dogs that are ready will go up on the website. If the dog becomes ready for adoption just before a Pet Fair, it will probably be adopted from the Pet Fair before it ever makes it to the website. Often people will call us looking for a specific breed and we will place the dog with them before it ever makes it to the website. Our foster homes work full time outside of the home and have families to care for. Often we just don't have the time to get a picture and a description up on the web rapidly but we do try.  So watch the web, call us, and come to the Pet Fairs. You have to be actively searching for a dog while we do our best to save them from the shelters and make them ready for you to find. As soon as the webmaster is notified that a dog is ready or has been adopted, the website will be updated.
