Keanu
1 year old, 65 pounds, Sebastopol

I am a GOOD BOY but CANNOT live with cats! My current family has a cat and it isn't working out between us.

I am a GOOD BOY but CANNOT live with cats! My current family has a cat and it isn't working out between us. Besides my obvious handsome good looks I am smart and athletic; housebroken; crate trained; 65 lbs; healthy and up to date on vaccines; make a terrific watch dog; and have a short, easy to maintain coat. I am a champion runner, jumper and baller, my best life would be in a home where I could be off leash in a large, fenced yard and running free, keeping your grounds secure of gophers and trespassers alike. I was a covid puppy so was not socialized young as I should have been and thus have anxiety around new people and new places, but I'm learning and getting more confident every day. With more leash training I would love to go on long walks or trail hikes, or even go running with you every day, as I have plenty of youthful energy! I will need lots of love, daily exercise, and positive reinforcement to help me work past my anxiety and become the best boy I can be.

Loki
3 years old, 75 pounds, Livermore

Loki is a loyal, loving and well trained purebred GSD. We adopted him when he was 8 weeks old from a breeder in Northern California and trained him at Cooperhaus K9 through level 3. He loves to play catch and go for a walk/hike. Loki is crate trained and house broken. He is reactive to other dogs and doesn't get along well with them. We've had a stressful situation at home with construction, a new baby and a pandemic and it has caused Loki to act up and bite my husband. Because of our 1 year old daughter, we can't keep him in the house, but I know he would be a loving dog for another family without children or much older children. We have a good relationship with the trainers and they will help educate the new owner on how to control Loki. An experienced GSD owner would be a best fit for adopting Loki. Please contact me for more details!

For more information about Loki, please contact his guardian at (314) 785-8597.

Atlas
8 years old, 190 pounds, Walnut Creek

I am saddened but need to find a home for my sweet, wonderful, and gentle dog, Atlas. I have had Atlas for several years since my ailing twin brother was not able to care for him any longer.

I am saddened but need to find a home for my sweet, wonderful, and gentle dog, Atlas. I have had Atlas for several years since my ailing twin brother was not able to care for him any longer. Everyone that meets Atlas fall in love with him at first sight and they say that is the biggest dog they have ever seem. Atlas is like a big bear and simply loves being with people, including small children, and his daily walks around the neighborhood. He can be stubborn at times and independent, but is very well behaved and a simply joy. So can you be Atlas family or buddy?

For more information about Atlas, please contact his guardian at (925) 482-7606.

Artemis
13 years old, 40 pounds, El Sobrante

Arta is a good dog. Quick to learn when being trained. Obedient mostly. Pulls on leash, until, using a command voice, I say "Pulling!" Used to be very shy with other dogs, but has gotten braver, more confident.

Arta is a good dog. Quick to learn when being trained. Obedient mostly. Pulls on leash, until, using a command voice, I say "Pulling!" Used to be very shy with other dogs, but has gotten braver, more confident. She gets a walk twice a day. She pauses to smell a lot when being walked.

Mamacita
9 years old, 10 pounds, Seaside

Independent, chatty, curious and exactly herself, Mamacita is looking for her furever home. At nine, she is wise and knows what she likes: catnip and the ability to be around people on her own terms.

More

Independent, chatty, curious and exactly herself, Mamacita is looking for her furever home. At nine, she is wise and knows what she likes: catnip and the ability to be around people on her own terms.

Neighbors reported that her owner passed away about a year ago and she was turned out onto the street. She made her way to a woman who was feeding some ferals who then reached out for help. Mamacita was exposed to a common cat cold while living on her own and with no one to provide care she developed a chronic sniffle. It doesn't slow her down a bit and she can live a normal, full life. Mamacita could live with respectful dogs but should be your one and only feline. Her ideal home would let her enjoy the outdoors during the day in a safe environment. She enjoys being combed and brushed, but not picked up or held. She needs a hero and a home. Could that be you?

She is spayed, microchipped, up to date on her vaccinations and flea prevention. She recently had a full senior blood panel done and all results were normal! Mature cats are the best - is Mamacita your new best furfriend?

For more information about Mamacita, please contact her guardian at (831) 202-2877.

Hollie is a sweet girl who loves to chill with her human. She's 35 pounds of wiggles. She likes to chase balls and does zoomies...a couple laps around the yard when she goes outside. She is good on a leash once the initial excitement wears off. She is house broken and very rarely barks. She is spayed, chipped, and up to date on vaccinations. She is very gentle, you can hardly feel her take food from your hand. She gives kisses and occasionally makes funny snort noises when she's happy and excited. Hollie has beautiful silky short chocolate colored fur and adorable polka dots on her nose. Other dogs make her nervous, especially big ones so she would probably be happiest as an only dog. I have not seen her with small children or cats.

Francesca was rescued from the streets on Christmas Eve 2020. She was emaciated, covered in fleas, severely matted and had infections in both ears. Today she is parasite, mat and infection free! Francesca is extremely affectionate, quiet and with time has become less shy. This cat is the easiest stray I've ever rescued. She is very beautiful and Loves to snuggle. She would do best with no other pets or children in the home but has acclimated very well with the resident cat at her foster home. Francesca is THE ultimate lap cat and is move in ready. She is litter trained, has been socialized and has been desensitized and is very easy to handle. Franny also does very well at the vet! She will need to be kept indoors for the remainder of her life. Please help Fran find her forever home!

For more information about Francesca, please contact her guardian at (415) 756-4554.
