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!
ISA (Adopt) Fostered in Roseville
Isa means strong. He was the first born here in his foster home, the feistiest and the largest in the litter of 5. He is now 11 weeks old, about 4.5 pounds, neutered, de-wormed, complete with his age appropriate vaccinations and microchipped. His adult weight will be around 11-12 pounds. His body is muscular and strong, and he has short shiny black hair which will not require grooming, just regular baths like any other dog.
Isa loves treats and I expect he will be very easy to train with treat oriented practice. He's a smart boy. He comes when called and is the first pup to plop in your lap. And of course he loves to play!
Isa has grown into a sweet little lap dog now and craves human companionship. He is such a sweetie pie. His mom is thought to be Havanese/Terrier mix, and his dad is??? His mom came from the shelter already pregnant (barely) so the pups grew in her belly with lots of healthy food and proper care, therefore the pups are healthy too.
Isa has been using a pee pad, and is now in transition to go outside using a dog door. So potty training should not be too difficult. He's doing well; he just needs to grow up a little.
FOSTER HOMES NEEDED!
You will have input as to who adopts him because you will know him better than anyone. The best part of fostering is that if you happen to fall in love with the dog you are fostering, you have first choice to adopt!
If you think you might like to give fostering a try, please complete the Volunteer form and we will be in touch! Thank you!
