FLUFFY (Adopt)

For those of you who want the perfect dog, Fluffy is your girl! She is perfectly house-trained, she doesn't jump, cry, or scratch at the door. She won't chew up your slippers, she's not a barker or a digger, and she has impeccable manners. She likes to sleep with you (but is also content in her crate), and she will ride quietly in the car for hours. She doesn't eat much (she's already stuffed!), she loves to cuddle, and she gets along great with everyone!

But for those of you who want a REAL dog, one that will be your loyal companion and lifelong protector, one that will love you unconditionally until its last breath, we have some wonderful dogs who would love to meet you!

The simple truth is -- no dog is instantly perfect. If you want a dog that will never bark, jump, dig, chew, has perfect manners, and is 100% house-trained on day one, then please adopt Fluffy (or one like her).

A rescued dog can bring a lifetime of love and devotion, but in the beginning some may require a little extra effort on your part. Some of these dogs have been abandoned, abused, starved, hit by cars, or simply neglected by the humans they once trusted. Their worlds have been turned upside down beyond their ability to understand, and most will require some time to adjust. Some may need a refresher course in house-training. And, after being abandoned, some may have separation issues and will need help to feel secure.

It may take two weeks or it may take six months, but these issues can all be overcome with a little love and patience (and we're always here to help in any way we can). You will then have your perfect dog, and a true Best Friend Forever.

If you wish to sponsor Fluffy (who is stuffed), your donation will help the real dogs in our care, and is tax deductible. (Donate) Thank you for your support!

Bijou & Mia

BIJOU and MIA (Adopt) Fostered in Fresno

Bijou is a beautiful bichon mix who weighs 14 lbs; we think she's about 6 years old. She is a very loving little girl and very compliant, she loves to please. Her sweet, playful, shy personality is the perfect complement to her sister, Mia, who is also very sweet but more confident (they're not really related, but they've lived together for 5 years and no one is going to tell them they're not sisters!). Bijou gets along great with most other dogs, she's good with children, and she loves to play. She also loves the little soft squeeky toys and will shake them and toss them in the air. It's so cute! She's not that interested in the cats, but if the other dogs bark at them then of course she has to join in. :)

Mia is a completely delightful little shihtzu girl who has a waggy tail for everyone (even the vet!). We think she's about 6-7 years old and she weighs 12 lbs. She has beautiful super-soft hair in shades of white and tan with a touch of gray on her ears. Mia gets along great with other small dogs, but the big ones make her nervous. Of course her favorite dog is her sister, Bijou. Mia has some interest in the cats, but usually ignores them. Mia loves to go for walks and loves everyone she meets. She is a TDI Certified Therapy Dog who has worked with hospice patients, the elderly, and children. Mia is an exceptional dog and good with people of all ages.

So many people contact us looking for a companion for their existing dog. Finding the perfect companion is not always easy: you have to find the right size, the right temperament, sometimes the right gender, and you usually have to take your dog to meet several dogs before finding *the one* (and with the price of gas, who wants to do that?). Well here's your chance to avoid all the hassle and get them both at the same time! Bijou and Mia are best friends, and we all know two are better (and easier!) than one.

Although we do not consider these girls to be seniors (small dogs can live up to 20+ years), BIJOU & MIA ARE ELIGIBLE FOR OUR SENIOR DISCOUNT -- if you are over 50, you may adopt a dog who is 5 or over for half price ($125).


CHARLIE (Adopt) Fostered in Clovis
Eligible for Senior Discount

Charlie is an adorable 10-yr-old Maltese/ShihTzu mix.

Dogs lose their homes for many different reasons... most of which have nothing to do with the dog: death of a guardian, not enough time for the dog, change in work schedule, new baby, need to move to a place where dogs are not allowed, kids going off to college, change in lifestyle, prospective spouse does not like dogs, or the novelty has worn off and they just no longer want the responsibility of taking care of a dog. All of these reasons are taken from real case histories, but whatever the reason given, the bottom line is the same: an innocent dog has been abandoned by the humans he once trusted and he doesn't understand why. In an instant, his world has been turned upside down.

Charlie is being surrendered by his owners because they are moving and, unfortunately, cannot take him. He is very healthy, current on vaccines, and has had a recent dental cleaning. He's a bit overweight right now at 18 lbs (due to being free-fed), but that's easy to fix -- just feed a low-cal meal twice a day and take a daily walks and he will be in great shape in no time! Charlie is very friendly and a great companion.

With Charlie you really have the best of both worlds. Charlie is healthy and young-at-heart. He's way past everything you dislike about puppyhood, and he has plenty of energy without being hyper. He loves to go for walks, gets along great with everyone (including kids), and rides well in the car.

Small dogs such as Charlie can live up to 20+ years, so you still have the opportunity to give him the best years of his life!
Charlie's adoption fee is $125.
