Sabot is a male - 8 months old
(Click on collage for additional photos)
Meet Sabot!! (Pronounced Say-Bow) He's an 8 month old rough coated tri-color Border Collie (born March 18). He's a playful and sweet pup looking for his forever home! He weighs about 43 lbs right now, but seems a little on the slim side. He gets along with people, dogs, and cats. He may be a little apprehensive of other dogs upon an initial meeting, but quickly gets over it within minutes. (This has only happened on our walks when other dogs approach him.) He loves our two resident dogs, a male and female Great Pyrenees, and wants to play with them all the time. He likes cats very much; he's done very well with our two housecats. In regards to people, he's only been a little scared of people who run by us on our walks. Other than that, he loves everyone! He does like to jump on people, but we've been working on the "off" command. He is such a loving and sweet dog, anyone would be lucky to have him. He is very smart, and already knows basic obedience commands. He is house trained and we have not had one accident in the house. He has been known to have urinary incontinence when he's really excited, but this has only happened twice with us. He needs more leash training but I've been walking him with a harness with little problems. (His biggest problem on a leash seems to be other dogs or people running who he is unsure of and subsequently, may bark at or jump toward. I've been doing my best to correct the behavior when it occurs but I'm also walking my two Great Pyrenees mixes at the same time. So as you may imagine, it's more of a hurried, try-to-get-through-the-moment instead of properly addressing the behavior.) I have no doubt that with a little training and proper attention, he will be great in no time. Sabot would do best with a family who would give him ample time to get out his extraordinary amount of energy. He would love to have a job, or at least lots of room to run and play all day. He would thrive with a human who could spend enough time and nurture his mental exercise requirements.
Sabot is neutered, up to date on his vaccinations and ready for his new home. If you are interested in Sabot, you must have an approved application on file. To inquire about adopting him, please email email@example.com.

Coming Soon - Meg is a female 6 years old
(Click on collage for additional photos)
Meg is a wonderful senior dog who was certainly surprised to find herself in an animal shelter. We took a chance with Meg when we rescued her, but we're so glad we did. Meg is such a sweet girl and has so much love to give. She came out of the shelter will a very bad case of kennel cough. She wasn't happy taking her medication in the shelter so she missed several doses. When she came into rescue, she learned how important her medication was and decided to take it as directed. Her kennel cough had advanced though and she ended up with pneumonia. Meg is on medication and will most likely continue with it until the end of December. Meg still needs to be spayed as her previous owners forgot to have that done. As soon as Meg is totally healthy, spayed and ready for adoption, we will update this posting. We figure she will be ready for adoption the first part of January 2015. Meg's coat is a bit rusty right now, obviously she was mostly an outside dog in her last home. As her new coat starts to grow in, she will go back to her beautiful velvet black coat.
If you are interested in Meg, you must have an approved application on file. To inquire about adopting her, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Meg is being fostered in Morgan Hill.
Meg is being sponsored by Richard E. in loving memory of Ladybug.

Sulay - Female 9 Months old
Sulay is showing her many different looks, those ears are something else!!! We don't know how they're going to end up once she matures but no matter what they do, she is still going to be a cutie!!!! Sulay is very under-socialized, she is unsure of everything at this point. She does like other dogs so they are helping her come around and it won't be long until she has more confidence. Right now we are trying to expose her to new things and places. It's going to take awhile but she is sweet and wants to please, so that helps.
Phoenix - Male 4 Years old
For those of you who have been following Phoenix, we are still trying to figure out what he can tolerate when it comes to food. He had basically no hair when he came to us, he was full of sores and his skin was totally infected. His infections have cleared up but it is still challenging to find food that he can eat without breaking out in hives. We have been working with Phoenix for 11 months now and we still haven't gotten the formula right for him. Phoenix is such a wonderful dog, calm, sweet, obedient and he loves to play ball. We will continue to try and find the magic combination of food so he can one day get adopted. Until then, he is happy in his foster home.

Tigger - Male 8-9 Months old
Tigger is a real sweetheart. Quiet, friendly and good with everyone. When he went to the hospital to be neutered, it was discovered that he has a heart murmur, along with some weakness in his joints. The doctor feels this could be caused by a poor diet when he was young. His foster mom has him on some great food and he is doing much better. Hopefully, his condition will turn around when he is in peak condition. Until then, his foster mom is happy to keep him with her, he is such a nice dog.
Phoenix has some wonderful sponsors:
