Ann

ADOPT recently received an update from Ann’s new mom! We are so happy to see how loved this girl is!!

Ann is already super spoiled. I had been saving toys for 2 years to prep for a new dog. Apparently I overdid it because I counted last night & she has 31 toys on the floor but I still toys for the future for her. She has some toys for chewing & also some plush toys. Some she wants to destroy, others she loves cuddling.

She’s such a happy puppy. She was thrilled about the snow, although she does thankfully want to go in quickly after she potties. She is also listening very well about not eating B’s food. He wants to eat her food though, they’re both silly.

Really just excited to watch her have all of the new adventures ahead of her. I’m trying to go to Yosemite this year for the first time & I think she’d love it. Hoping to get her into a puppy play group from my job next month, too.

Thank you soooo much to your entire team for suggesting her! She’s the perfect addition to my life.

Josie

ADOPT recently received an update from Josie’s fur-ever family after she celebrated her birthday! She is getting lots of love and snuggles in her new home!

Chili

Chili

Breed: Beagle mix
Sex: Female, spay surgery is scheduled
Estimated Birth Date: February 2018
Size: 25 pounds
Good With Kids: Yes but children older than 8 might be best
Good With Cats: Yes
Good With Dogs: Yes
Housetrained: Yes
Crate Trained: Yes

Recommended Environment: Chili will do best in a calm and quiet home where her family will be patient with her as she comes out of her shell. True to her Beagle heritage she loves to go on walks and follow her nose. Chili isn’t as energetic as most Beagles we’ve met, but she will require daily exercise. She would love a person that enjoys naps and cuddling.

Additional Information: Chili is fearful of loud noises and sudden movements. We don’t think she was exposed to much in her previous life so patience and positive reinforcement will be necessary as she navigates her new world.

Ranger

Ranger

Breed: Shepherd/Beagle mix
Sex: Male, neutered
Estimated Birth Date: 3/15/2021
Size: 24 pounds currently. We estimate he will be 30 pounds or so when full grown.
Good With Kids: Yes
Good With Cats: No
Good With Dogs: Yes
Housetrained: Yes
Crate Trained: In process

Recommended Environment: Ranger will thrive in a home where his family is willing to work on his training in a fun, high-energy, low stress manner. He needs to work on his manners so obedience training is highly recommended. Ranger’s life has been turned upside down so he is timid around loud noises so a less rambunctious home would be best. He would love to have a canine sibling that is willing to play and tolerate Ranger’s eager and playful personality. An apartment is not recommended as he barks at people and dogs walking past his home and is vocal as he continues to adjust to his crate.

Additional Information: Ranger is quite the velcro dog. He loves being with his people. He has started exhibiting some separation anxiety; his foster parents are working on it and feel it will resolve once he is in his stable forever home. We discovered that Ranger does not care for thunder. His foster family has been playing thunderstorm noises and using positive reinforcement to try to desensitize him to the sound. With time, love, and patience, Ranger will be an amazing addition to any family.

Lilly

Lilly

Breed: Pug mix
Sex: Female. Too young to spay
Estimated Birth Date: 11/15/2021
Size: currently 12 pounds but we estimate she’ll grow to be under 25 pounds
Good With Kids: Not tested but we feel she will be fine
Good With Cats: Yes
Good With Dogs: Yes
Housetrained: In process
Crate Trained: Yes

Recommended Environment: Lilly would do great with a big family with a lot of people to give her love and attention. Her favorite place to sleep is on someone’s lap. She needs a family that is willing to continue with crate training, potty training, and leash training. She would love a family with another dog that wants to play with her.

Additional Information: The American Kennel Club lists Pugs as “charming, loving, and mischievous.” We couldn’t agree more! Lilly’s foster told us she is fearless and extremely enthusiastic when meeting new people. She loves to walk and play outdoors.

Spot

Spot

Breed: Border Collie/Australian Cattle Dog mix
Sex: Male, neutered
Estimated Birthdate: 2/13/21
Size: Currently 43 pounds but may be over 50 pounds full grown (we’re guessing)
Good With Kids: Unknown, but probably ok with older children that he can’t knock over
Good With Cats: Unknown
Good With Dogs: Yes!
Housetrained: In process
Crate Trained: In process. He doesn’t go in willingly but is quiet once he is in the crate

Recommended Environment: Spot is a typical energetic puppy. He does need to learn some manners. He would greatly benefit from obedience training! He loves playing with other dogs and meeting new people. Having a canine playmate in the home would be ideal but not required as long as he gets doggy playtime. We recommend an experienced dog owner. Border Collies and Australian Cattle Dogs are highly intelligent and require training.

Additional Information: It is hard to get a decent picture of Spot because he is either playing or coming to his person for attention. Check out the Cruella de Vil marking on his head! He is working on learning new commands but gets distracted easily. He is very sweet, affectionate and playful and will make a fun companion to any family.

Otis (formerly Calvin)

ADOPT recently received an update from Otis’s (formerly Calvin) forever family. He’s doing so well in his new home and we’re thrilled to hear it! 🙂

Just wanted to update you and let you know that Calvin, now “Otis”, is settling in incredibly well. He and Wally get along beautifully and we’re so happy he’s in our family.




Piper

ADOPT recently received an update from Buddy’s (formerly Petey) new family. We’re so happy he found a wonderful family of his own!

Piper (pink collar) is very sweet and smart. She has became fast friends with our older adapted dog (Matlock) and is a welcome part of our family. I know by the pictures, it looks like all they do is sleep, but it is impossible to get pictures of them in any other state. Piper is our second dog we have adopted through this program and both have been great dogs. Piper is adjusting well and we are so glad she has became part of our family.

Hansel

Hansel

Breed: Catahoula Leopard Dog mix
Sex: Male, neutered
Estimated Birthdate: 4/3/2021
Size: currently 40 pounds but will grow a little more
Good With Kids: Unknown but most likely yes
Good With Cats: Unknown
Good With Dogs: Yes
Housetrained: Yes
Crate Trained: Yes

Recommended Environment: Hansel is a bit of a velcro dog and needs to be with his people. It would be best if he wasn’t left alone for long periods of time. He is very intelligent and curious and will require plenty of exercise and mental stimulation. He would REALLY like to have another dog in his home.

Additional Information: Hansel just wants to be near his human all the time. We were having a hard time getting a decent picture of him! When he first arrived, he liked to race toward people and take flying leaps to get in their laps. He is currently working on containing his exuberance. Continued obedience training, consistency, and positive reinforcement will help him reach his full potential.
