Lexington Grey (Lexi)
8 years old, 60 pounds, Livermore

Lexi is a high energy, incredibly smart affectionate lab mix, she's been with me since she was 8 weeks old, and although she's 8 now, she has the energy of a puppy.

More

Lexi is a high energy, incredibly smart affectionate lab mix, she's been with me since she was 8 weeks old, and although she's 8 now, she has the energy of a puppy. Lexi is a great travel companion, we've gone on numerous cross country road trips, hiking and camping trips.

Lexi has some anxiety, around young kids on skateboards or running around; but she's gone through an intensive board and train program to help her with her anxiety and she does great on an e-collar. She is crate trained, house trained, leash trained and follows basic commands. She is so smart she'll do great with someone who has experience with training.
She loves to follow you around the house and lay outside in the sun. She loves food - but has some allergies so is on a strict limited ingredient diet. She'll be a great addition to an active family, preferably a home without young children.

For more information about Lexi, please contact her guardian at (619) 787-4001.

Tabitha does not get along with the 3 year old male Tabby I adopted from ARF. I have a 3 year old Granddaughter that presents a big challenge for Tabitha. She has become recluse and very skid dish due to the current environment. A quieter home would be better for her.

Burger
3 years old, 80 pounds, Concord

Burger was found roaming a dog park, skinny and dirty. We took him in and got him cleaned up, healed some sores, got him neutered. We have been working on training him, but he seems to have grown up without ever learning any manners.

Burger was found roaming a dog park, skinny and dirty. We took him in and got him cleaned up, healed some sores, got him neutered. We have been working on training him, but he seems to have grown up without ever learning any manners. He is very good when he's at home with his people, but he still has poor leash manners and takes his time opening up to new people. We are looking to re-home him because he does not get along with our cats, which has put a big strain on our family. We think he would do best with a patient family with older children and no cats, who has some prior experience with German shepherds or similar breeds.

For more information about Burger, please contact his guardian at (914) 434-0621.

Oakley is a 7 year old English bulldog that we have had since 8 weeks old. He loves short walks and lots of attention. He loves soaking up the sun as much as possible! He loves to play fetch, but usually you're the one actually fetching the ball! Haha He does have chronic ear infections and doesn't do well with young kids.

Sheila
5½ years old, 55 pounds, Oakland

Sheila loves her toys and her people. She will greet people as they enter the house with a toy in her mouth. She is quite calm in the house, but does rotate through her toy bin daily.

More

Sheila loves her toys and her people. She will greet people as they enter the house with a toy in her mouth. She is quite calm in the house, but does rotate through her toy bin daily. She's good on leash and is definitely more of a "sniff and stroll" type. Overall, she is very people focused. Having lived with old, retired people who putter around the house, she would do well with someone who has the time and energy to slowly build her confidence and expose her to more of the outside world. She doesn't have high energy needs, but could definitely use continued socialization.

For more information about Sheila, please contact her guardian at (510) 708-6856.

Gracie and Xie Xie
12 years old, 12 pounds, Walnut Creek

Xie Xie (pronounced "Shay Shay") means "thank you" in Chinese- she is the tan one on the left - a mixture of Shitzu / poodle / Pomeranian / Yorkie.

More

Xie Xie (pronounced "Shay Shay") means "thank you" in Chinese- she is the tan one on the left - a mixture of Shitzu / poodle / Pomeranian / Yorkie. Very sweet, loves to cuddle next to your left thigh or on your lap in a chair. Always sits and presents her neck to make it easy to put on her leash when invited to go on a walk. Plays gently but actively.

Grace is the more dominant of the two and is a as bit bigger. Also loves lap time and will lay back into the crook of your arm and fall asleep. She is smart and very aware of everything around her. Loves to chase a thrown toy. Grace "disciplines" Xie Xie if she doesn't come when called or does some other improper behavior. Xie Xie returns the favor if Grace doesn't behave as requested.

Both get along very well and should be kept together. They love walks, bedtime (they sleep very soundly in their cage) and are excited to start the new day when released in the morning. They are people loving and playful. They eat Hills Science diet I/d kibble and canned food. They especially like the canned food.

Great dogs for 12 years looked after by Dr Knibb in Alamo who they (and we) trust.

For more information about Gracie and Xie Xie, please contact their guardian at (925) 280-2856.
