MEET TACO – NEEDS ADOPTER OR FOSTER ASAP!

Taco is a 2 year old
handsome and lovable male brindle and white Am Staff mix. He has a good sturdy
build and weighs about 75lbs. He is an all-around awesome dog who does great
with kids and other dogs (cats unknown but he showed no interest in the shelter
cats).

Taco just wants to be loved and is eager to have a family of his own that will
give him lots of attention, play time, and cuddles!

He walks well on leash, a pretty mellow boy.  A ‘dude with  truck’
would suit him well to truck around with, while at the same time we think he’d
do well with a family  with yard as well.

A country spot.. great! he wont  run away.. looooves his humans!

He is somewhat trained, communicates well,  and will do just about
anything for food!

Taco was at an over-crowded high kill Socal shelter and his time was up
right before Thanksgiving! The shelter volunteers knew he was a special boy
that deserved a second chance at life, so they contacted our rescue to help at
his final hour. We could not let him die and knew we needed to save him
before the holiday or he would have NO chance! Thankfully we were able to get
him out of the shelter and transported to Norcal into temporary boarding, just
to save his life.

Now Taco needs a loving home to call his own — either an adopter of a foster
home.

See his sad face in his first photo that was taken while still at the shelter,
and now he is already looking happier in the other photos which were taken on
his first “Freedom Day”!!

We want to see him with a loving family ASAP that will give him a permanent
happy face!!

If you think you could be a good match for Taco to foster or adopt him, please
contact us ASAP.

Teddy aka Nick

 

tedfixbs copy tedbiks teddyfc

Our Teddy-boy is the BEST dog ever.. supersweet, great with dogs, young playful and the softest most strokable tan fur!

He ALMOST ended up in a socal high kill shelter, but a rescue intercepted him, and what a lucky boy! He has a birthdefect in one eye, and cannot see from it. Does not seem to stop him, and vet says not much to do.. not painful, not immediately noticeable, no red, no pawing.

Teddy is about a year old, and about 55 lbs. Looks on the small side. His temp is very sweet, and he is soo into his humans.

He is currently in a semi-boarding situation, and would love to snuggle up to you in a real home with a real family. He’d make great company for your similar size female ( or male playful) dog, and is somewhat trained. He may be okay with cats, tho not tested.

Won’t you open your home/heart to him as a foster, fostadopt, or adopter?

Teddy is fully vetted and ready to go to a loving family, thru a rescue org so an adoptfee to cover his neuter etc is needed.

Feel free to contact us for more questions.

Robin – Cattle Dog Mix needs home

Robin is a wonderful 50 pound, cattle dog mix, female.

She loves to sniff as you can see by the photo above.  She walks great on a leash and is good with other dogs and even puppies.  She needs a slow introduction to strangers, but once she warms up she is fine.  She is very mellow when inside and energetic and fun when outside.  She’d be a great hiking buddy and company at home when done.

Please contact us  if you are interested in Robin.

Ben – URGENT home needed for Ben!!

05_BenBen go bye byeBen on a drive

Ben is a big love of a dog. He’s about 2 years old and as gentle and sweet natured as they come. Maybe it’s that face, or his super soft fur, but there is something about Ben that just makes you want to hug him. And that’s fine with Ben because he loves everyone! He wants nothing more than to hang out and be part of whatever’s going on. He’s up for hikes and adventures but he can also chill and laze away the afternoon at your side. He walks nicely on the leash, is good with other dogs and is so willing to please he’ll be easy to train. He’d be a great dog for an active family. Ben was on death row in a Southern California shelter and just made it out in the nick of time.  Now we’d love to find this big-hearted guy a foster or forever home.  No cats for Ben please.

Please let us know if you would like to adopt Ben – he’ll make a wonderful addition to your family or home.

Update: Ben is now available in the Redding/ Sacramento area – please contact Save a Dog Today at http://sadt.info/

Thank you for considering to help us rescue another deserving shelter dog!

 

Drake – URGENT needs a home ASAP!

MEET DRAKE – URGENT NEEDS ADOPTER ASAP!

DRAKE IS IN  A TEMPORARY BOARDING/KENNEL SITUATION,  URGENTLY  NEEDS  COMPETENT MATCHING HOME!

Drake is a herding breed and has shown great interest in chasing small animals or rodents, those inquiring about Drake should have herding dog experience.

Drake is a lovely tan Shepherd/ Husky Mix.  Drake is an athletic boy who would make an excellent hiking or jogging buddy. He gets along fine with other dogs but can get concerned about protecting his food and treats (no wonder, this poor boy was abandoned by his owners and had to fend for himself) – so if he has another doggie house…mate, he would do best to be fed separately.

Ultimately we’d like to find him a forever home, could you be that special person?? Please contact us for more information on this gorgeous boy Drake.

Update: Drake is now available in the Redding/ Sacramento area – please contact Save a Dog Today at http://sadt.info/

Zoe needs a home of her own!

Meet Zoe, she’s a real sweetheart, read what her former foster parent has to say about this chi mix cutie:

Zoe is a very a peaceful, loving dog, comes running when you call her name, not demanding at all and a good companion, especially for the elderly.   She is no trouble to be with and only barks once in a while.  Zoe is looking for a quiet, peaceful home and prefers no other dogs, although she wouldn’t mind another peaceful dog.  She likes to sleep under a blanket especially with her human friend.

Toby3

Toby is a darling Chi mix – here’s what his former foster parent had to say:

Toby is a sweet, gentle, mellow fellow looking for a home that has a girlfriend around his size to play with. He likes to be cuddled and, once in a while, will let you know that he wants some loving. He likes to go on walks and is very good on leash but will let you know if he thinks your feet are too close for comfort.
If he hears you call his name he will come quickly. Toby will protect his territory by barking loudly, though he won’t bite. He likes to sleep under a blanket because he has very short hair and gets cold. Being a boy, he likes to mark his territory so diapers will keep him from marking and also make sure he does his business outside.
