Gordon (AD1708)

Male Tan
Wire Haired Terrier Griffon cross.
Young adult
Gordon was surrendered to Hollister Animal Shelter with his two siblings, due to the family moving away. The siblings were adopted quickly, but as Gordon was very shy, he was left behind. Officer Patterson knew the right rescue to call.

Gordon had a vet check, all vaccines updated, is very healthy, he was treated for wax in his ears, he has little tartar on his teeth, we will discuss with the vet if he needs to get them cleaned.

Gordon has completely blended into his foster home very quickly, after only 3 days, he has 2 dogs and cats for companions. He is a very smart dog, very loving, pays attention and is housebroken. Although he was not happy about going into a crate, he has adjusted to it. The shyness that held him back in Hollister shelter has vanished, we think it was just too much for him. Gordon weighs 26.4lbs. Look at this sweet adorable appealing face. We want Gordon adopted into a home, where he will live out the good life and never be surrendered to a shelter again.

Marley (AD1675)

Marley 2 yr old Maltese Bichon Male

Marley came to us via a young couple who were walking their dog in San Diego and this bedraggled heavily matted flea/tick ridden little dog followed them. That was New Years Eve, 2016, he has been in foster care since.

Marley loves to play, and would be fine with other small laid back FEMALE dog once he gets to know her, but he is very choosy about who he plays with. Marley really LOVES his toys, if you come to visit Marley and want to be his best friend, just bring him a squeaky toy, he will love you. He is crate trained, and walks very nicely on the leash, is not destructive in the home and is housebroken.

Marley likes to always see you approaching him, when picking him up he likes the gentle touch, although he has greatly improved, he just needs to trust. We have no idea of what Marley has been through. He does know his come, sit and stay. He will shine if given the opportunity to be signed up for further training in obedience classes.

Marley has been around older children, and is fine with guidance from adults who have pack leadership qualities, best in a home with no toddlers and possibly with someone who is works part-time. Marley attended his first small pack walk and we are so happy to say he was very well behaved, well done Marley we are proud of you, now young "man" it is your job to pick your new family. If you would like to meet Marley and feel you are qualified, he will be happy to interview you. Marley is being fostered in Gilroy.

Marvin (AD1696)

Male tricolor
Chihuahua cross
Marvin is a 5-year-old tricolored Chihuahua that came from the SJAC Shelter and needed rescue due to chronic ear infections. He is currently in a foster home in San Jose, where he lives with another big dog, and two teenagers. Marvin is very sweet and loves to be with people. Marvin had surgery to repair ear canals plus dental cleaning and teeth extractions. He is fully recovered and pronounced very healthy. Marvin is not suitable for placement in a home with young children; we are looking for an adult household or family with teens.

Marvin is housebroken, perfectly behaved in the home, will do well in a home with another small dog. His foster parents wonder why no one is looking at Marvin, "he is perfectly behaved, listens, and how he enjoys his daily walks". Marvin even went on a small dog pack walk with three other dogs; he got 10 stars that day. Marvin weighs under 10lbs.

Marvin is being fostered in CAMPBELL, CA

Oreo (AD1688)

Male Black and white
Russell Terrier
Oreo is an adorable 5-year-old Parson Terrier mix. He came from the SJACShelter, he was a stray that was brought in with a chest wound. He is now healthy and healed. He can be a little shy, but warms up quickly, on the whole a very sweet dog; once he knows you he will jump in our lap and give you kisses. Oreo deserves a loving home where a family really cares for him. Look at that big smile. Oreo does not care for other dogs or cats, so best in a home as the only dog. Oreo weighs 15.2lbs
Ozzie (AD1687)

Male Black
Parson Terrier Cross
Ozzie is a very happy go lucky 1-year-old Parson Terrier /Jack Russell cross. He was originally adopted from the San Jose Shelter, but was returned after a couple of days because he was afraid of the toddler in the home. He will be a great dog for a family with children ages 6 and above, but no toddlers please! Ozzie is black with white paws and chest, super friendly, he has a huge potential and will make a perfect easy going family pet, who listens. Ozzie is crate trained, good with other dogs. Ozzie weighs 18.9lbs.
Tickles (AD1707)

Female Tricolor
German Shephard Mix
Young adult
TICKLES was found tied to a tree on Hwy 156 in Hollister, in 100 degree weather. A kind person saw her and called the right person to go and rescue her, our thanks go out to Kevin, who is now her foster Dad.

Tickles is very friendly, super sweet and loving, gets along with other dogs of her size. She currently weighs 27lbs, so we think she will be a medium sized dog when fully grown. She is a large puppy with very high energy levels, will need lots of walks, a family that is very active would be best suited for Tickles. Due to her high energy, and that fact that she runs like a greyhound when she gets going, she will be best suited to a family with no small toddlers or children.

Tickles loves the safety of her crate and will go into to have naps, also sleeps in it at night time. We can say she is about 97% housebroken. Tickles is very healthy, had a vet check up, and is current on all vaccines, and microchipped, she will be spayed on August 8th.

Look at her beautiful face, how could anyone tie her to a tree and walk away. To adopt Tickles the family must agree to pre-register her in puppy obedience classes, prior to adoption, she is a very smart intelligent puppy, the classes will make her excel and bond with her new family.

Zoe (AD1705)

Female Tan
Cairn Terrier mix
Young adult
Zoe was surrendered to Hollister Shelter, because she was pregnant, possibly by her own son, from a previous litter. Zoe is 6 yrs old, this will be the last litter she has to have. Her puppies are due anyday (07/21/17), and we believe she will have five puppies. Zoe is in great health, has been checked up by the vet, an ultra sound was done. she is very loving and sweet, will make a wonderful indoor dog for the right family, after the puppies have been weaned and she is spayed. Zoe is being fostered in Hollister.
