Maggie is a very loving, sweet dog. It would be nice for her to be in a one dog home where she can get all the attention and love she deserves. She loves to be a lap dog and to have her tummy rubbed. She needs someone with patience to train her on a leash and that can spend a lot of time with her. She loves kids and is very protective of her home. She has been very loved and has had the same family all of her life. Her Daddy passed away recently and she has had a hard time adjusting to that. So now separation from her Mommy is going to be very hard and it breaks Mommys heart, but unfortunately necessary because of moving to AZ. Please give her all the love she deserves and she will give you more in return.

For more information about Maggie Mae, please contact her guardian at (925) 642-8684.

Charlie loves walks and running around the backyard. He gets along great with other dogs, is very friendly with every dog we have met on walks and with our own dog. We are able to leave Charlie outside for long periods of time and he is happy to sit in the sunshine and relax. He loves his kennel, sleeps there at night and he also goes in during the day to nap. Currently he is not neutered but we will pay for the procedure if we do not get it done before he finds a new home.
While Charlie likes to have some independence and can be outside alone, he also loves company. He will sit right next to you on the couch and loves to be pet. He follows commands well, I can tell him to go outside or into his kennel and he does. He knows how to sit and stay, and to shake hands.

Sweet and an attention hog, but can be shy around new people and new dogs( especially those who are the same size or bigger than her). She's not the best at dog parks (gets overwhelmed), and has another female housemate currently but they are fed separately and monitored closely when together.

Very treat motivated, needs leash training, and has some separation anxiety, but is the sweetest, most loyal dog.

This is Spanky. He's a wonderful black lab/pit mix. He's 8 years old and we took him in as a rescue about 2.5 years ago. Spanky has separation anxiety and has over-bonded to me. These have caused some behaviors to worsen since my husband and I got married and although he does have a doggy Prozac prescription and we have attempted to work with desensitizing his anxiety, our work schedules are opposite and with opposite sleep schedules he ends up alone alot. we feel that for his overall health it would be best to find him another home. He is the sweetest dog and it breaks our hearts to let him go, but we hate to see him so anxious and would love to see him in a new home with someone who had more time to devote to his issues. He is a calm dog who loves to play catch, not a licker or chewer except for his toys. He has gotten along with our cat very well but we wouldn't recommend his new home have any other pets due to possible protective or defensive reactions once bonded.

Teddy is the sweetest boy who just loves to be with you and loves walks and to play. He attended Basic Manners Class and loved it and was many times chosen as the "example" of how to do it. :) He is quite polite, responsive and comes to a call or whistle. I was told he was a Bichon Frise' but found out he is a Miniature Poodle hence his new grooming. He looks adorable with the Bichon cut actually. He will be 5 in May and so deserves a loving, warm home with someone who will be his "forever" family. I feel he would be happier in an adult situation, not with children. You will love him as I do. It breaks my heart to give him up.

We welcomed Sal into our home when his owner suddenly passed away, but unfortunately we are moving out of state and our current living situation doesn't allow pets. Sal is a little shy at first but is the greatest cuddler when he opens up. We raised our 4 year old with him and he did great, so I have no doubt that whether his new home has kids or not he will be a great new addition! He loves being indoor and outdoor! He isn't the most active so as long as he's getting fed, loved, and has a warm place to sleep...he is a happy guy! I'm really hoping that someone can give Sal a new furrever home!
