Rosebud

Rosebud is a lovable little kitten who adapted well to socialization.

Read More

Rosebud is a lovable little kitten who adapted well to socialization. His adorable sister is still too shy to let me touch her, but Rosebud loves her and even seems to protect her (she is much smaller), and when they snuggle up together, he even endures her suckling on him. Rosebud is quite the extrovert and has made every effort to befriend my older male cat -- to no avail. He does not scratch. He loves to play and also to be held. He will make an excellent pet and will likely do well with children. He has not been litter box tested, but he sometimes comes into my house and is very well mannered.

For more information about Rosebud, please contact his guardian at (510) 787-2471.

We adopted Hayley from a rescue group in 2011 and she has lived with us at our residence in San Lorenzo ever since. She loves cuddles, is very playful, and always curious. However, she can be overly skittish at times (we believe this is due to the abuse she received before being rescued). Nevertheless, Hayley will always greet you with a cheerful "meow" and is so full of love. She's also lived in harmony with our other adult male black cat and four children in the six years she's lived with us. We are so sad to part with her but know that she can bring another family so much joy and love.

Vinnie & Candie
10 years, 80 & 65 pounds

I have owned these dogs since they were puppies. I recently lost my husband and have to downsize my property and can't take them with me.

They're 10-year-old cattle dog/lab mix and are litter mates. Vinny is around 80lbs and Candie 65lbs. They have been to the vet regularly and are up to date on shots. They are getting old and aren't as active (except in spurts) and seem to have minor joint stiffness when they first get up after laying around too much.

They are picky eaters and you can leave food out and they won't touch it. Vinny is allergic to chicken so Candie hasn't had chicken either. They aren't aggressive eaters.

They aren't the best with little kids, but they have learned to tolerate them. They are not the best-behaved dogs either when guests come over. They bark and jump on people. They can listen and have a few commands they know and obey, but they aren't good at holding that command for a long time.

They are not socialized with other dogs. Vinny was attacked by a pit bull around the age of 3 and Candie by a chocolate lab also around that same age.

They also love pools and bodies of water. They swim a lot, but they aren't fond of the hose or a bath.

For more information about Vinnie & Candie, please contact their guardian at (916) 799-5838.

Momma is an attention-getting lover. She enjoys showing off in front of company and loves to cuddle up on your lap during down-time. She can be quite saucy when the wind blows the wrong way, and takes a while to warm up to strangers, but I have come to appreciate that she is selective with her love. Once she gets comfy with you, you won't be able to get away. But if she is scared, boy she'll let you know.

Maddie is a sweet, lovable black lab/pointer mix.  She likes her humans, but tends to bark from fear at unfamiliar sounds and other dogs and people.  She is smart, and already knows the commands for Sit, Down, Shake, and Watch Me.  She needs someone with the time to spend with her training her either in classes or with a dog trainer.  Whoever adopts her needs to have that time and plenty of patience.  I wish I could keep her (she sleeps with me every night!), but my husband has serious heart issues and we are back and forth to UCSF.  It has become impossible to give Maddie the attention she deserves.  She could be someone's forever friend because she is very affectionate once you get to know her.

We are looking for a home for our adorable dog, Oreo. We've had him for 9 years and we love him very much but he is not good with kids and we've recently had a new baby join our family.

* Oreo is a mix Shih Tzu Poodle who we rescued in February 2008. We think he was born in August 2007 so he is turning 10 this year and is still in perfect health!

* He's around 16 lbs and he's hypoallergenic (does not shed or trigger dog dander allergies!)

* He loves walks, playing fetch, and sunbathing. He is also a big fan of lazy days and is really low maintenance.

* He's very treat motivated and knows a few tricks - shake hands, high five, turn around, roll over, go to his spot (crate), stay, touch (come), play dead and/ or lay down.

* He loves to cuddle.

* He's house trained and does not have destructive behaviors. He is potty trained and is accident-free for many years.

* Oreo is not good around young kids or sudden shrieking, jumping, etc. and can act protective of his owner.

* He can be protective/territorial around his beloved owner - manifests when strangers or other animals visit his home. Outside the house, he is fine.

For more information about Oreo, please contact his guardian at (510) 541-0481.

Bordeaux's owner passed away from cancer in early 2016, and a new forever home is needed for this perfectly trained little gentleman to avoid a shelter. He is fully housebroken, great on a leash, neutered, up to date on all shots, in perfect health, micro-chipped, and very loving. He is not currently kenneled when his owner goes to work. No chewing, no drama, no hassle. His only questionable habit is sometimes sneaking onto the couch for a nap when no one is looking! He'd do best in a house with lots of love (he's a major snuggler.)

BordeauxOnce he's outside, though, he's all play. Bordeaux loves playing fetch, swimming, and going for walks. He's also awesome with people and other dogs - and a pro at the Doggie Day care routine. His pet resort is happy to be an objective/unbiased reference for his behavioral/obedience awesomeness.
