Bran is a very loyal, protective dog. He enjoys going for short runs when it's not too hot outside, and he loves playing tug-of-war. He is good with babies and children. He is anxious around strangers, especially dogs. He is unpredictable when he is around other dogs, so we need to keep him under surveillance at all times. Bran deserves an owner who can take a little time to train him to react calmly to other dogs and take him for runs. He loves being pet, massaged, and occasionally cuddled.

For more information about Bran, please contact his guardian at (530) 400-5094.

Hanks is a people-loving, 40-pound Vizsla mix that wishes she were a lap dog. She's high energy, but well trained and responds to authority and basic commands. She is an excellent watchdog but doesn't bark or whine much otherwise. She loves to run, play fetch and is a good jogging buddy. Inside the house she's super chill and loves to cuddle up with you on the couch or in bed. She does not get along with other dogs, so we are looking for a home that does not have other dogs or cats, or young children.

My name is Scout! I am a small dog with a big dog heart, social skills, and energy. I love going on, on and off leash hikes, and I also LOVE my snuggle time. Unfortunately, my current human is no longer able to care for me, so I am looking for a new forever home. I LOVE kids, other dogs/animals, and humans. I'm tan, and super adorable (so I keep being told!). My coat is short, and SUPER soft--so soft, that often times people still think I'm a puppy! I know sit, wait, heal, down, off, and leave it! I'm really good about getting my nails clipped, taking a bath, and coming when I'm called. I'd do well with an active person/family or a person/family that doesn't leave me lone for too, too long (I get lonely)---but, I'm very social, so you can take me ANYWHERE!! I've even been on a plane before!! All want is keep being loved and to give love in return!

Brody
1 year 10 months, 60 pounds

Brody deserves a loving family/parent with the time and energy to guide him from his rambunctious teenage years to adulthood.

Read More

Brody deserves a loving family/parent with the time and energy to guide him from his rambunctious teenage years to adulthood.  Brody is a good boy - we love him dearly but we find we no longer have the discipline we once possessed when raising this same breed years ago. He is active and can be stubborn (like all bullies).

Brody also suffers from stranger-danger and requires the necessary training to recondition him around strangers of all sizes and genders.  Brody has not bitten anyone, nor do we think he will, but he is large, strong and sometimes scary to people who are not familiar with this breed.

Deep down Brody wants to please, love and be loved.  It saddens us deeply that we do not believe his long-term best interest is to remain in our aging family.

For more information about Brody, please contact his guardian at (925) 260-7403.

This dog is named Mini and she is half Min-Pin and half Chihuahua. She is 12 years old and can no longer stay with my brother who is 65 yrs of age,  disabled and must leave his Section 8 home.  He has had her since she was a puppy.  I've witness Mini to be good natured with people and children.  She lives with my brother's cats with no problems.  She is an indoor and outdoor dog.  Although she would do better inside. Mini has not lived with other dogs, but, when dogs have visited she is generally shy.

He must move in two weeks approximately. Whatever, you can do to help save Mini would be greatly appreciated.

Oreo is an extremely loving indoor cat that loves to rub noses with you. He is pretty independent and doesn't need to be in your lap all day. Oreo is great with children and is very curious. He isn't too fond of bigger dogs with a high energy level and might do better being the only pet in the household. He would make the perfect companion for someone that likes quiet time - preferably with a nice window to watch the birds outside!

Josie enjoys all toys, especially the ones that squeak and the ones for pulling. She loves to lay on her bed or crate and enjoys sleeping in and having treats. She will sneak in a kiss or a lick, will give you the cutest puppy eyes, and will inch her way in so you can give her a petting. She will jump, prance and bring you a gift (her toy) when you come in from work.

Josie is housebroken and has graduated from obedience school. She knows commands: come, sit, stay, and go to your blanket. She is a good loose leash walker/runner. She is still learning drop it and lay down.

There is no cost, only the re-assurance the new family will provide her with a good home.
