Sal

We welcomed Sal into our home when his owner suddenly passed away, but unfortunately we are moving out of state and our current living situation doesn't allow pets. Sal is a little shy at first but is the greatest cuddler when he opens up.

We welcomed Sal into our home when his owner suddenly passed away, but unfortunately we are moving out of state and our current living situation doesn't allow pets. Sal is a little shy at first but is the greatest cuddler when he opens up. We raised our 4 year old with him and he did great, so I have no doubt that whether his new home has kids or not he will be a great new addition! He loves being indoor and outdoor! He isn't the most active so as long as he's getting fed, loved, and has a warm place to sleep...he is a happy guy! I'm really hoping that someone can give Sal a new furrever home!

For more information about Sal, please contact his guardian at (925) 216-3982.

Dara is a purebred Golden Retriever, who loves everyone. She is good with children of all ages, loves other dogs, is even OK with cats and parrots. She enjoys playing with stuffed animals and fetching tennis balls. She has been loved her whole life, and always slept in her owner's bedroom on a doggie bed. She is house trained as an indoor-outdoor dog, and loves going on car rides. She is fine off leash in her front yard, as she's devoted to her people, and not prone to running off. Last year her owner suffered a spinal injury, leaving him paralyzed. He could not keep her in his new home, so his mother took her in. Sadly, his mom's elderly large dog is an alpha female, and has refused to accept Dara. The bullying against Dara has been nonstop by the old dog. Dara's owner and his mom feel Dara would have a better life re-homed to a Golden Retriever loving family who can give her all the attention and affection she deserves.

We hate to do it, but it's time that we find a new home for our puppy Zoe. We rescued her last May when she was just 8 weeks old. Unfortunately, our schedules at home don't allow us to spend much time with her which forces us to leave her outside for most of the day. She loves spending time with people and wants attention that we just can't give her anymore.

She's wonderful with kids (our daughter was 3 when we got her) and is great around other dogs. She does still need some more exposure to other dogs as she just a bit scared still. So more playtime would be beneficial.

She's a lab/pit mix and will be a year old this March. She's up to date on all vaccines, spayed and chipped. She's house trained and loves to chew on deer antlers and play fetch. She knows all basic commands (sit/down/shake/paw). She probably could use more obedience class as she does get too excited at times.

We're hoping to find her a home that will give her the love and attention that she's looking for.

Spike is a sweet dog and wants to please. we have worked successfully to curb him from snapping by desensitizing/ training regarding sensitive spots and protective nature of the breed.

Sammy

We have had Sammy for 9 years since he was a small puppy -- we adopted him from a shelter in New York when he was just a few months old. He is a wonderful, cuddly dog 99 percent of the time. Occasionally, though, he gets possessive of bones or other items and when that happens he bites if we try to get the object away from him. We have been able to control the problem for 9 years by keeping valuable items away from him. It also almost never comes up when he isn't anxious. But we now have two small children and we have become too afraid that he will bite one of them or one of their friends. When Sammy isn't guarding something he is a wonderful, sweet dog who does not have a whole lot of needs. He is now blind and he only needs two or three short walks a day. Mostly he likes lying around the house and cuddling. He would do wonderfully with an owner who has no children.
