Sadie is a very sweet dog that would do best with an owner that can stay at home most of the time and provide her with a very structured and stable environment. She has a lot of anxiety due to the abuse she has experienced in her life and just needs consistent love and care to help her really trust others (particularly men) again.

She loves to sit next to me while I work and is very quiet. We so wish she got along with our other dog better- we would be keeping her if she did.

For more information about Sadie, please contact her guardian at (925) 348-4353.

He loves kids and other pets. Please free to good loving safe home. We love him and don't want to get rid of him but there is an issue here in the retirement community where he lives. The old folks are a little worried he is too big that's all. They have a fifty pound weigh limit here and he exceeds it slightly. We love him and he loves us but he needs a loving forever home with lots of space and fun.

I am looking for a forever home for my dog Scout as we Will be moving and are unable to take him with us as the county we are moving to only allows you to own 3 dogs.  He would be a great indoor and outdoor dog, with someone that can spend a lot of time with him.  Scout is very obedient and just wants to be loved.  He can be nervous around strangers, but I have never seen him show aggression toward people.  He is a rescue and his original owner said he was attacked at a dog park by two pit bulls and should not be taken to a dog park.  I have never taken him to a dog park, but he seems to be fine with my other dogs. He is an alpha male so he does get into it with my Queensland Heeler every once and awhile because the Queensland is an alpha male as well.  He seems to be fine walking him outside on the leash and he is great with little dogs.  He is shy until you get to know him, but once you do he will love you and just want to spend time with you.  He is a 3 year old fixed male about 60 lbs. I had his DNA test done and he is mostly German Shepard with some border collie and Australian Shepard mixed in.  If for any reason he does not work out I will come and pick him up no questions asked.  Please message me if you are interested.

For more information about Scout, please contact his guardian at (925) 989-6709.

Dotty is a rescued feral who has been in my care for approximately 5 years. She needs one on one personal love and if given this attention, has the potential to be a loving, if aloof house pet. She has never attempted to scratch or bite when handled, but is at this point traumatized by the adjustments in her life and is fearful/hides.
