BUTTERNUT

5+ Year Old Male

CHIHUAHUA

Butternut is fully grown at about 8 lbs. He is pretty much a lover and a lap dog and really wants to follow you everywhere. He is good with cats and other small dogs but a bit too delicate for small children. He enjoys walks but really enjoys being carried. He would love to sit in a lap or on your chest - the closer the better. He was not happy with his bath but really enjoyed the towel drying and frankly does not do much to get dirty! He is using a dog door and seems to have it down but I would suggest supervision at first.. He is crate trained and rides well in the car, loves a car seat where he can see out. Loud noises make him jump so this gentleman would probably prefer a less hectic household. He is neutered and up to date on his shots.

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.

Fostered in Hayward, CA - Adopt by appointment only.

GOLDIE

6 Year Old Female

GREYHOUND

Goldie is fully grown at about 75 lbs. She loves to get attention from people and will be fine with respectful children. Goldie is crate trained, walks on a leash and appears to be housebroken. She is good for grooming and is generally quiet. She is nervous in new situations - her adopter will need to be prepared for, and be patient with, some mild whining and pacing until Goldie settles in. She is fine with other dogs, but does not like to be jumped on. She will not be placed in a home with cats. Goldie is flea-free, spayed, microchipped and current on vaccinations. She weighs 77 pounds.

If you would like to help with the cost of my care, click on the PayPal button

DUSTY

1 Year Old Male

TERRIER MIX

Dusty is fully grown but still gaining weight at about 12 lbs. He is a very busy and into everything kind of dog - not the type of dog to sit still for long. He has amazing stamina, speed and jumping ability - fantastic agility candidate. He enjoys walks with a preference for the ladies. He is a bit intimidated by tall men. At the end of the evening he is ready to snuggle on the couch and leans in for a good pet or belly rub. He loves all toys and really enjoys chew toys. He can and does retrieve a ball but would much rather play a game of chase. He is good with cats and med/ small dogs, but may be too much for small children. He was good for his bath but I can’t say he loved it. Dusty loves to talk to you and can give you a very sad face when he wants attention. He is using a dog door but will still need supervision when loose in the house. He is crate trained and rides well in the car.

NOAH

5 Months Old Male

AMERICAN BULLDOG/GREAT DANE? MIX

We don't know his exact mix, but Noah is barely 5 months old and is still very much a baby at 60 lbs! He is expected to be 100+ pounds when he's done growing. Noah is a quick learner, and is not in the habit of using his weight to his advantage. He is crate trained, knows "sit" and will walk/pull on leash, but he still needs to go to obedience school. Noah loves to wrestle paws-on with any dog that will have him. If there is another dog in your household, she will need to be agreeable to that level of play. He is not ideal for a household with cats as he will bark and chase them if allowed. Children should be OK as long as they're tall enough for their faces to clear Noah's wagging tail. Noah is neutered, vaccinated, de-flea'd, dewormed, and microchipped. The adoption fee is $350

CIRIE

3 Years Old Female

SHIH TZU

Cirie is fully grown at 10 lbs. She is quiet, sweet, playful and just the cutest thing! She was great for her bath and haircut (thank you Jama of TRIM in Los Gatos) and rides well in the car. She is crate trained, walks well on leash and appears to be housebroken. Cirie gets along with other dogs, but does not care for being accosted by them - even if it is in the interest of play. Cats and respectful children are fine. She is spayed, flea-free, dewormed, groomed, vaccinated and microchipped. The adoption fee is $350

EVEREST

4 Months Old

AMERICAN ESKIMO MIX

Special Needs

Please help this special needs puppy! Everest is a little 4 month old mixed-breed puppy who was found in the woods trying to walk on his back legs because both of his front legs were badly broken. One leg had the bone poking through the skin and was unable to be saved. The other leg has been saved, and we are counting on the generosity of dog lovers like you to help out with his vet bill. All donations are tax-deductible.

See Everest's full story and updates at https://www.gofundme.com/sbpr-everest. Please feel free to share his story on social media (see us on Facebook under South Bay Purebred Rescue).

MAX

5 Months Old Male

SIBERIAN HUSKY

Max is an energetic and playful puppy. He does know some basic commands such as sit, come, stay and paw. He does need some work walking on a leash but seems to be a very quick learner. He is crate trained and mostly housebroken with supervision. It is not recommended to leave him unattended in the house...he is still a puppy. He still has puppy tendencies like digging and chewing. He should be fine with other large breed dogs, he will be too much for a small or young dog. Basic obedience classes are recommended to continue manners and socialization. He will be too much for small children as he still has very playful mouthing behaviors. Max is not recommended for as a first-time dog. He will need boundaries and an owner dedicated to training.

SALLY

5 Year Old Female

GREYHOUND

Beautiful, gentle Sally was rescued from difficult living conditions. She was underweight, infested with many parasites and very unsure about her new surroundings. But she has a good appetite, so she's filling out nicely. Sally is now parasite-free, spayed, microchipped and current on vaccinations and weighs about 70 pounds. Within a short time she turned into a total love bug. She absolutely thrives on love and affection and wants no more than to be with her people. She loves to run when the spirit moves her, but would rather just curl up next to you. She quickly learned the household routines and appears to be housebroken. She is crate trained, learning to walk on a leash and learning what it's like to live indoors - on a soft, warm bed for the first time. She will be great for a first-time dog person.

SANDY

2 Year Old Female

GREYHOUND MIX

Like her companion Sally, Sandy had the same tough start. A healthy appetite has helped her fill out nicely. Gentle and loving, it takes Sandy a little time to warm up but she is also eager for any bit of attention. Once she's comfortable with you, she'll stand on her back legs to give you a kiss. For fun she'll show you how fast she can run but ultimately her favorite pastime is to curl up next to you. She also has adjusted well to the household routines and appears to be housebroken. She is crate trained and learning to walk on a leash. And most of all, she is learning what it's like to live indoors - on a soft, warm bed for the first time. She will be great for a first-time dog person. Sandy is now parasite-free, spayed, microchipped and current on vaccinations and weighs about 65 pounds.

CLYDE

3 Month Old Male

MIX

Clyde came to us infested with fleas to the point where he has scabs on his skin from itching. He is a chunky 20 pounds now, and is expected to be approximately 50 pounds when full grown. His mix is unknown, however he does have double dew claws on his rear legs which is common in Great Pyrenees, he also looks similar to a Dalmatian, just an all American Heinz 57. He will need obedience classes and continued socialization. Clyde is neutered, UTD on shots and has been given flea treatment. He has starting crate training and is doing great. He is a little reserved at first but warms up quickly. He should be fine with other dogs, and respectful children. His adoption fee is $300.00.

Rusty

If you would like to help with the cost of my care, click on the PayPal button

RUSTY

5 Month Old Male

HOUND MIX

Rusty is a gorgeous little boy. At 45 lbs he will likely be a big boy. He has a big appetite, so expect him to grow fast. He is very focused as he sits in front of you or follows you around. He enjoys running the yard, nose to the ground searching out every scent he can find. When you praise him, he melts at the attention. He can be a gentle little love bug one moment and a rambunctious puppy the next. He thrives on love and affection. He is learning the household routines and proper manners and appears to be picking it up quickly. He will likely be an excellent candidate for learning agility or nose work. Rusty is crate trained, learning to walk on a leash and learning what it's like to live indoors and be part of a family. Because Rusty will probably be a very large dog, obedience training would be a must. He is neutered and ready to meet his family.

KIRA

3 Year Old Female

SAINT BERNARD

Kira is fully grown at a "fluffy" 145 lbs. She is in rescue because her owner passed away. Kira has been partly trained; she is housebroken, crate trained, leash trained and knows "sit" and "shake" for treats. Her adopter will need to be gentle, yet firm enough so Kira doesn't think she's in charge. She is smart, receptive to training, and good for grooming. She is good with kids and other dogs, but is probably not a candidate to live with cats. Kira is smooth coated and is only drooly right after a drink of water. She is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, vet-checked and ready to go to her new home.

NUGGET

9 Month Old Male

TERRIER MIX

Nugget is fully grown at 14 lbs. He is a spunky boy who loves to get belly rubs and go for walks. He gets along with other dogs that aren't too rough, and should be fine with children and cats. He was great for his grooming and seems to be a light shedder. He's not yappy or snappy, but will bark at squirrels or when the doorbell rings. He is not a major leg-lifter and appears to be housebroken. He is crate trained and rides well in the car. Please email adoptarescuedog@aol.com for an application.

STEVIE

9 Month Old Female

BORDER COLLIE MIX

Special Needs

Stevie is most of the way grown at about 40 lbs. She is about 95% blind (we're pretty sure she can see a tiny bit), which was likely caused by a head injury during early puppyhood. In spite of her rough start, Stevie loves to play and does not act like she has a disability. She is crate trained, walks nicely on leash, and is even trained to exercise on a treadmill for those days when the weather is too awful to go outside for long. Stevie has also had basic obedience training from the fantastic Virginia Dixon of Oliver's Travels Dog Training in San Jose. Stevie likes other dogs and cats as long as they're patient enough to not mind getting bumped into sometimes. She is spayed, microchipped and current on vaccinations. We don't know her exact breed mix, but her profile looks very similar to an akita. We expect Stevie to be around 45 lbs when full grown.

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.
