Nora – Foster Home Needed

 

 

Nora is a complete love! She is a gentle girl who loves cuddling, children (ages 12 or up or younger kids who know how to be gentle with a dog), all people..and did we mention cuddling!

Nora is a beautiful girl who was rescued from Coalinga along with her ELEVEN pups, the last day that their gas chamber was in use before being dismantled. Gas Chambers were phased out in CA for being inhumane, yet it was discovered that one was still in use at the small shelter, where not many animals made it out after finding themselves there. The SFSPCA stepped in and removed the terrible chamber. Nora and her tiny babies were among those that had been slated to be killed, and they did not want to leave them behind given that they would still be put to sleep. They reached out to us to see if we might be able to help, and the whole family was relocated to our sanctuary where we raised the pups until they all found wonderful and loving homes. Now it is Nora’s turn!

Nora was very thin when she came to us, but despite this would let her pups climb in her bowl no mater how hungry she was. She is a gentle and sweet girl, that did an amazing job of raising her VERY large brood of babies! She is a quiet girl, who is not reactive towards other dogs when passing . She can however be stiff when meeting them, especially if they come on too strong so would likely be more comfortable as an only dog that did not have to visit dog parks.

She is a lovely dog that was spared a terrible fate, and we are looking forward to her having many wonderful years ahead in a loving home!

MEET “MISS PIGGY” – NEEDS ADOPTER

Little Miss Piggy (“Moi?”) is so named for her entree as she entered the stage of our rescue from a high kIll facility in the central valley.

She is quite the show-personality, and very human oriented, eager to have your attention. She is an approx 7 year old chihuahua mix, a “chi terrier”, approx 1/4 inch fur, longer than a chi, and is approx 7 lbs. 

 A tiny dog with a big personality, Piggy is affectionate, loyal and sweet.  She walks well with a harness and will also follow her human around the house or yard.  In a home environment, she gets along well with other animals (cats and dogs) and gentle, respectful children. She is used to cuddling up with other small dogs, and living with nonreactive, mellow large dogs.

Piggy appears underweight,  however comes with vet records proving extensive tests showing proper digestion. she does not like to be lifted up suddenly or roughly, possible result of slight degeneration in vertebra, common in chi”s , also x-rayed and tested extensively by vet. Piggy does best when someone sits with her while she eats and several feedings throughout the day  of wet food, meat with vegetables  works best; she just cannot handle so much at one time. She will nibble a bit throughout the day on her own, if food is left out for her.

 Her energy level is great, like a little wind-up doll and that tail just wont stop wagging when you approach. She will also relax on your lap, nap in a sunny spot, or her favorite: create her den in the covers of your bed. there is nothing quite like being greeted by the kiss of a tiny tongue as you stir in the morning with an enthusiastically  wagging tail on the other end:) She is house trained if let out regularly, esp after meals:) playpen doesn’t work too well, she is an escape artist:) large wire crate in family room works, but smaller plastic crates dont go over well with her.

She will run up to large dogs yapping as many small dogs do, and needs to be kept safe from dogs who may see her as prey; therefore, small dog experience in her new, loving forever home is great.

Little Miss Piggy will provide high entertainment for many more years to a person or family who will give her companionship and a comfy home situation.

Darling Toby needs a Home!

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. Toby will do his business outside as long as he has a way out, especially early in the morning.

Former post:

Jasmine was out of time at a local shelter – she is in a foster situation  She’ is a Boxer, possibly Boston Terrier, Dutch Shepherd mix.  The shelter says I am about 2 years old.  She is approximately 35-40 pounds and spayed. She’s a great compact size and she loves other dogs and we’re told by shelter she likes kids.  She’s a very happy dog who would benefit from refresher training, we are working on sit and off, and she’s picking it up quickly, she’s food motivated so it makes it easier to train.

Please let us know if you’d like to adopt her – she’ll make a wonderful addition to your family or home.
