Leroy is a sweet, loving, cuddler who just wants to lie next to you on the couch after a long day of playing. But two cats, two kids, and another one on the way are not the ideal household for him. Leroy can be very fearful & anxious and tends to adopt a "guard dog" personality. He needs a home with someone who can spend the necessary time to exercise, train, and socialize him to get him more comfortable with other people and visitors. He does great with other dogs and LOVES to play fetch with a ball.

Hi! Our names are Alex and Chloe, and we're brother and sister and love playing together. We're Russian Blue mixes, and are good natured, friendly but independent indoor cats. We've never scratched, bit or hissed at our humans, we're just a little stressed by the toddler that is roaming around. We think we'd do well in a household without small children around. Alex is curious and friendly; Chloe is shy but very cuddle when she gets comfortable. We'd love to meet you!

Rufus is a gorgeous dog, very loyal and protective. He comes across as assertive - typical GSD working line temperament. He needs a dominant person, with GSD or other similar breed experience. Once he knows you, he is very sweet and playful and bonds strongly! He is used to being with his owner 24/7, and hopefully will find someone who has a lot of time to share. He enjoys physical and mental stimulation, and would do well in a "working" environment. He may enjoy scent work, search and rescue or additional obedience training, either formally or otherwise. He enjoys walking, running and hiking. Most of all he just wants to be with his person. He does have a prey drive, and may not do well with cats though this is untested. He is assertive towards new dogs but can get along if introduced properly. He formerly lived with a 8-12 year old boy, but hasn't been around too many children in the last two years. Rufus will make a wonderful companion for an alpha-type human!!

Peaches is a large (65-lb) female hound dog, about two years old, spayed, up to date with shots, and microchipped. She is the sweetest girl and makes a great family dog. I need to find her a new loving home, since I'm going through a very difficult divorce and will soon have to move to a small apartment. I live in Pleasanton. Peaches is house trained, but she spends most of her time outdoors with our other dog. She needs a little leash training, and although we don't use crates, she is so easygoing, she probably would adapt to a crate just fine. She is a passive dog, great with other dogs and people of all ages. Never aggressive. She doesn't seem to be interested in our cat. She tends to bark at dogs passing outside our fence, but I've found that a citronella spray collar works very well to stop the barking. I just have to show her the collar now, and she knows to keep quiet. I am sad to have to part with her, but I'm in a situation where I have no choice.

He will also nibble if you aren't petting him and he wants you to. He loves cuddles and attention, but doesn't do well being held. He's fairly talkative to let you know he wants your attention.

Simba is a calm but playful 4 month old kitten! He and his brother were originally found as strays, but now are being fostered at our home until they find their forever homes. They already have their shots and are neutered. He knows how to use the litter box and doesn't mind being brushed. Simba loves to hid in boxes and sometimes under the bed, but does come out if there is food or his favorite mouse present. He purrs when someone pets him under his chin or at the base of his ears and literally falls asleep while being held in your arms. He also loves playing with his toy mouse but does enjoy hanging out on his own sometimes. Simba would bring so much comfort into anyone's life.

Elsker means Love in Danish. She is a very cuddly pup and would let you rub her belly all day long if you would be willing to do it. Elsker's been in a home with eight kids ranging from newborn up to teenager. Before she came to us, she was in some sort of accident that resulted in a metal plate being placed in her front leg. We've had her for about two and a half years and we think she was about 1.5 or 2 years old when she came to stay with us. Unfortunately, she just can't get along with our neighbor and the situation has gotten worse instead of better since she was pepper sprayed several months ago. She seems to respond with fear to anyone who comes near the house and being in a loud, full home is not helping with her anxiety. Elsker needs a quieter home with fewer people. When she feels safe, she is very playful and sweet. She loves to dance on her back legs and twirl for treats. She doesn't fetch or play with toys, but she likes to play hide and seek and she'll "poke" you if you pretend to ignore her. Elsker adores riding in the car. She is fully house trained with no accidents. She'll stay in a crate, but may whine if she knows someone is around to hear her. She *loves* just being around her people. Elsker doesn't like cats, but she's very fond and affectionate with our chinchillas. We suggest having several "playdate visits" to help with her anxiety before moving. We haven't had issues with our kids, but she's become more withdrawn and nervous around them.

Kitty's very mellow, responsive to human contact, allows nail trimming and other daily maintenance, often follows from room-to-room. He's been an indoor-outdoor cat but should be able to adjust to indoor only given stimulus such as a window to see the world; outdoors he sticks fairly close to home, comes back in response to hand clapping and calling his name. He's always lived in a home with no other pets, a similar living situation would probably best suit. He's visited the vet regularly, has no known health issues; all vet records available for review. Thanks for your consideration!
