Boba Hank is a 2-year old black domestic shorthair cat who is 18 pounds of pure love! His previous owners surrendered him to Encina Veterinary Hospital due to some medical issues, recently of which he has been completely cured from. He is cautious around new surroundings and it takes him a bit longer to adjust to changes since his vision is slightly impaired. Boba has a charming personality and loves to play with all kinds of toys--toes included! He is a very vocal feline and loves to talk, almost as much as he loves to eat! Boba gets along with dogs, but might do better in a home without other cats, due to the fact he is a lot to love and wants all of your attention. He has not been introduced to children, but he does better in a calm and relatively quiet environment. If you're looking for a love bug to help find them a forever home, look no further!

For more information about Boba Hank, please contact his guardian at (925) 998-9023.

Miles
2½ years, 20 pounds, Pleasant Hill

Miles is an unknown mixed breed male that is approximately 2 ½ years old and 20lbs. He is neutered, has all vaccinations, no known health or physical conditions and is microchipped.

More

Miles is an unknown mixed breed male that is approximately 2 ½ years old and 20lbs. He is neutered, has all vaccinations, no known health or physical conditions and is microchipped. He was adopted from ARF in October 2018 after being rescued from Sutter County Animal Shelter as a stray with no history.
Miles is extremely affectionate to his family. He has some basic obedience skills, is responsive to some directions and is house broken. He has shown some protective personality traits and can back down with firm command or may need to be removed from the situation. Generally mild mannered and friendly, his aggression has been unpredictable. He has a few bite incidents, none resulting in injury and only one breaking the skin superficially.
He loves walks, hikes and car rides, but also loves to snuggle on the couch just as much. He loves water and is extremely comfortable with bathing. Miles loves the dog park and enjoys socializing with other dogs.
He has had experiences with dog groomers which went well in the end, but they need to work with Miles to accomplish a full body coat cut, and especially when clipping his nails, he needs some extra restraint. Miles had wonderful experiences with two different veterinarians.
Miles is best suited for a family with no young children in the home and few visitors. His protective nature does not respond well to people coming and going. He has had to be isolated when visitors are at the home due to his potentially aggressive behavior.

For more information about Miles, please contact his guardian at (925) 457-3327.

He is great on his gentle leader, stays by your side, and will even sit on the sidewalk until you tell him it's safe to cross the street.

Maya

More

Maya is a perceptive, funny, caring dog with tons of personality who needs a home with another dog and/or a household where she isn't alone very much. We got her at 6 months old from a shelter where all they knew about her is she was picked up in a parking lot. Where ever she came from, the people were not kind to her. We've been working with her for the last eight months on her anxiety, and she's come a very long way, but she still has a ways to go. Maya weighs 38 lbs, comes to just below my knees. She'll come with a crate, bed, leash, toys, a brush and food. She's up to date on her shots. She would probably benefit from some more training, but she's completely house broken, knows sit, lay, shake and responds to her name. She loves to chase sticks and balls, but doesn't really like to let them go. For the most part, she loves playing with other dogs and kids, but it takes her a minute to get used to new adults, especially men. With a little patience and reassurance, she will continue to grow into one of the most loving dogs ever.

She is very gentle with our two young children, but will occasionally jump or chase other animals or children who approach quickly or run by.

She is fully potty trained, and enjoys going for walks and hikes, but is also happy to just run around in a backyard or park and then spend the day cuddling being a lap dog.
