MEET OUR SWEET “BABY BOY” – WAITING FOR HIS FOREVER HOME!!
“Baby Boy” is a 1 year old black pittie mix who weighs about 53 lbs, and is just a total sweetheart with a stellar personality. He is neutered, fully vaccinated and chipped, flea free and heart worm negative.
Baby Boy’s recent past is a sad story – he ended up at a rural Norcal shelter when local Animal Control took him off to “doggie jail” for harassing a neighbor’s chickens (unfortunately his original owners allowed him too much freedom). He was held for 5 weeks as evidence pending a court hearing and then released to the County shelter, where he was put on the Euthanasia list just 2 days later, simply due to shelter over-crowding.
Thankfully the shelter staff and volunteers could see what a great dog he is and knew he deserves his second chance. He found himself a “guardian angel” there who stepped up and got him out to emergency boarding just in time, so we could assess him and find safe haven.
Given his length of incarceration (5 weeks) without any exercise whatsoever, and then another week in boarding with only short potty break walks, his ability to roll with the punches is remarkable. We also believe that his chicken incidents were likely more due to boredom and lack of supervision, rather than high prey drive, based on initial assessment around other animals.
During his time out of the shelter, and now currently in a temporary foster home, we have found him to be a wonderful boy who would be a fine family dog and all-around companion. Baby Boy loves people and attention and the company of other dogs. He is almost indifferent to the cats in his new foster home. He is well-mannered, respectful, attentive, cooperative, affectionate, curious, easily re-directed, and seems to be mostly house-trained.
Baby Boy loves riding in the car and settles right in to enjoy the journey, with no barking or bouncing around. He is doing well on the leash, and will just need some work on learning to stay controlled in exciting situations (i.e. if he sees another dog, who he wants to meet and play with). He meets strangers easily and was a huge favorite at the vet clinic where he was in boarding. His vet loves him and told us that he is a wonderful dog and we agree completely.

We have seldom seen a very young adult dog that was so easy-going and easy to have around.
We have all fallen in love with him and want to see him in a happy forever home, where he gets the love, attention, playtime and care he deserves.
