Find Your New BFF!
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!
MARCI (Adopt) Fostered in Roseville
Marci is a 14 lb silver-white senior maltese mix (the shelter guessed her age at 10, but she is lively and energetic and seems much younger). Marci is a long-haired dog, but the shelter shaved her very close because her hair was so tangled. It will take a few months to grow back, but when it does she will look adorable!
Marci is in great health, strong and active, and not real barky unless she wants something. She is a good communicator, potty-trained, and absolutely loves going on walks. She would do well in a home that is active and includes her in their activities as much as possible. She does OK with kids and some dogs, but has not yet been tested with cats.
Have you ever seen a face this cute?!? I didn't think so! This is Luci and she is 5 months old and weighs 6 lbs.
Luci was given to one of our volunteers when she was only 8 weeks old, and she has been raised around kids, cats, and other dogs (and loves them all!). We were told that she is a mix between a Maltese and a Pomeranian, but we're really not sure what breed she is. The groomer thinks she might also have some Schnauzer in her. She has a long torso and short legs, she does shed some, and she will be under 10 lbs when fully grown. Comical Luci will be whatever you want her to be; she just wants love, someone to play with, and a family to call her own.
