Bear (AD1746)

Male white

Bear was found by a very kind caring lady as he was wandering the streets of Hollister. This was how he looked when she picked him up. Filthy dirty and so badly matted. How anyone can let a dog get to this state bewilders us, but in rescue we have seen it all and worse. Our thanks to the generosity of Country Groomers for making Bear look and feel so good.

Bear is a very sweet little dog, he weighs 9.8lbs. He interacts very well with other small dogs and cats that are used to dogs. Good with children, and he even goes to the door to let his foster Mum he needs a potty break. Once he is done, he taps on the door to come right back in. He will make a wonderful pet to a loving family. He loves the comfort of a home and being indoors. Bear is very affectionate and gives kisses. We want to find Bear the best home possible, after all he has

Joy (AD1741)

Female Black and white
6 years
Joy is 6 yrs young. She came to us from San Martin Animal Shelter. Her original story is one of the horrors of back yard breeders. She was confiscated along with 20 other dogs, that were being used for breeding. Joy had several litters and was not socialized except with dogs. Her life was unimaginable.

The shelter had to work with her for some months to get her used to people, A couple in their mid 50's choose to adopt her and continue working with her on her fear of new people. After two years they recently returned her to the shelter as they were moving and could not take her with them, requesting the shelter euthanize Joy. They felt Joy would not handle going into a new home.

Staff members would not do it, as they all knew what Joy had been through. Once again Joy became frightened and a little fearful in the shelter environment, and would back into a corner. Staff and volunteers began to work with Joy once more, but listed her as rescue only. Her story caught our attention and the shelter worked with us until we could find a foster home for her.

Joy is a very sweet loving little dog, and became quite playful once she was out of the shelter. Look at the happy smile on her sweet face. She is very good with other dogs and had exposure to grandchildren children, she is housebroken, enjoys going for walks and having playtime. A quiet environment is best suited for Joy. She is scheduled to have a dental cleaning on January 23rd. Joy will make a wonderful companion for a couple who are retired or for someone who works from home.

LEXI is 1 yr old female GSD/Doberman cross

Lexi is a female GSD cross, she originally came to us from Stanilaus County Animal Shelter, after roaming the streets for several months and fending for herself, she was finally picked up by shelter staff. It took sometime for Lexi to trust anyone, eventually she put her trust in one person Kathy Fielder, who really fought to save Lexi's life, as she was deemed adoptable to rescue only.

Lexi was adopted, but returned three months later.

Here he is sporting his new harness, that is his sister Rosie checking it out. He is crated trained, and is trying very hard to get the potty training down. Peanut will love being in a home with another small dog, he will make a wonderful family addition.

Virginia (AD1737)

Female black and white tan
Chihuahua Mix
11 years
Virginia 10-11 yr old Female Chihuahua

Virginia came to us from Hollister Animal Shelter. She had been dropped off in the night box, staff were hoping the owner might come forward to claim her, as she was such a sweet loving gentle soul. We told them she could come to us when her hold time was up. Sadly, no-one came. Virginia is in good health as per our vet, no medical issues to be concerned about, she just needs to lose a little weight, so more walks and healthy food are on the menu. She is an easy soul to care for, gets along well with other small dogs, and a rabbit in the foster home. She enjoys going on walks and fits right, plus she is housebroken. Virginia would be a wonderful companion for a couple that works and one can come home at lunch to give her a short walk or a retired couple or person. Look at those appealing eyes. Please consider adopting and giving Ms. Virginia a forever home, she deserves it.
