Adoption Pending DogsAbigail

These dogs are in Foster-to-Adopt homes. This gives pros pective adopters 30 days to foster the dog in their own home before finalizing the adoption. We feel that a 30 day trial period is a good start to know whether the dog will be happy in that household and whether the household will be happy with the dog! Dogs will often act more cautiously for the first 2 weeks, so a full month of dealing with the dog during your regular routine is very important.

If you are interested in becoming a regular foster home or in our Foster-to-Adopt program, please read our Fostering Agreement. We actively encourage Foster-To-Adopt!




Arlen Head
More

Adoption Pending!

Arlen

Arlen is 2 - 3 year old male German Shepherd, he is light tan in color. Arlen was a stray from a local area shelter so not much is known of his background. On the thin side at 65lb he should gain ten more with his good appetiate.

Arlen was an outside dog and is hesitant to come inside the house however, he's adjusting well to sleeping through the night in a crate. Arlen enjoys his foster brother and sister loves to lick them, give kisses. He does well on a leash, walks ok with the pack but would rather walk next to his person. Arlen is a quick learner and picked up easily on basic commands such as sit, down and working on stay.

This is a Level 2 Dog!

Brandy HeadAdoption Pending!

Brandy

Brandy is a lovely black and red female about 4 years old. She was an unclaimed stray out of a local shelter so nothing is known about her background. What is known is they Brandy came to us with heartworm and is now in treatment.

Brandy is an easy dog. She is housebroken, sleeps quietly at night either in her crate or free in the bedroom. Brandy doesn't have much in the way of formal training, but is learning basic commands, and is very responsive to her human. She is quiet and calm in the house, settling easily. Brandy walks very nicely on leash but does get a little excited by neighborhood squirrels.

Marigold Head
More

Adoption Pending!

Marigold

Marigold is a 10 week old bi-colored female. She probably has a little something else in her (Rottweiler?) but it's hard to tell at this age. She was an unclaimed stray at a shelter, so nothing is known of her background.

Marigold is a sweet, outgoing girl that loves people and other dogs. She can be a bit of a drama queen when she doesn't get her way, but she is learning that "no" means "no".

She is currently living with dog-savvy cats, but is quite determined to chase them, despite the claws. She may learn with leash-corrections, but for now the cats have given up and stay away.

This is a Level 3 Dog. Please be sure you understand what this level of dog requires.

Remington Head
More

Adoption Pending!

Remington

Remington (Remy) is a floppy-eared, 80lb, black/tan male, almost 2 years old. He was surrendered to a Sacramento area shelter but no background information was provided.

Remy appears to have been an outside dog, but has quickly learned that living indoors with his canine and human foster family is a pretty good gig. He is a bit uncertain with new situations at first, but is gaining confidence every day as these new experiences become routine. This gentle, affectionate boy has wonderful house manners.

This is a Level 2 Dog!

Sam Malone Head
More

Come meet me on Saturday, July 28th from 11am to 2pm at the Roseville Adoption Day at Pet Food Express on Galleria Blvd!

Adoption Pending!

Sam Malone

Sam Malone is a handsome, black and tan male, approximately 3 months old. He and his six siblings were taken in at a local shelter, but little background information was provided. Sam was the biggest of the litter and wanted to dominate the rest of the puppies. He is the last available puppy from this litter.

Currently he's living in a home with an adult female German Shepherd who doesn't like to engage in play. Sam does respond well to her corrections, so another patient large dog would be ideal for this boy. It appears he will grow up to be a good sized adult dog.

This is a Level 3 Dog. Please be sure you understand what this level of dog requires.

The benefits of a German Shepherd—loyalty, protectiveness and eagerness, to name a few—come from careful obedience training and authority. Everyone in the household must be prepared to show “authority” and earn the dog’s respect with a firm but loving touch. They do not respond to negativity or anger. Once achieved, this respect may need to be earned again and again.
