Blitzen D6525

Blitzen D6525 Hair/Color: White
Gender: Male

Breed: Cattle Dog

Size: 22

Age: 6 months
Listed By: Furry Friends Rescue

Blitzen and his sibling, Dancer, were rescued from a sad situation. He is adorable, curious, lovable and needs basic puppy training/socialization. 

Update from his foster home: Blitzen is doing very well at his hero foster home. He is very sweet, social and playful with their dogs. Blitzen is curious, confident and very smart. He loves following his people around, learning home life and handling/cuddling. Blitzen will need a home with yard and experienced guardian with knowledge of cattle dog needs. He will be active and may need dog sport training. Soon he will go to puppy socials. Blitzen complains about being put in a crate – so if he is traveling in a crate, he will complain for a while – about 10 minutes. House-training is going well and he knows to use doggy door.

Update 12/25/18: Blitzen is now showing genetic impairment of deafness and possible vision. Per his foster home and brief exam with a vet. He seems to be deaf – noises do not attract his attention. There may be some frequencies that he can hear. We are waiting to take him for further testing. Also there are “stars” in his eyes, something that happens in the womb as the membranes are forming over the eyes. This is apparently not correctable and usually means that there is some impairment of his vision. The foster home feels he sees pretty well. He is hesitant around unfamiliar steps - and unfamiliar things, as though he's not seeing well enough to move forward confidently. Sometimes, if when holding something out for him, she have to wiggle it to get him to notice. They haven't pinned down if there are areas that he sees better or not but he sees well enough to run in the backyard, go on walks, play with toys, get water and food.  His brother's DNA test, shows pure Australian Cattle Dog.

Comet D4159

Comet D4159 Hair/Color: White With Tan, Yellow Or Fawn
Gender: Male

Breed: Miniature Poodle Mix

Size: 11

Age: 2 years 4 months
Listed By: Furry Friends Rescue

Poor Comet was badly neglected (matted, covered in dirt, ear infections, thin) and abandoned at a crowded shelter. He was nervous and scared at the shelter, but can be walked, petted, and handled. Once out he relaxes and is sweet. Comet just needs time to heal, get healthy, and experience holistic foods and home training. He is also now enjoying his new groomed look! Comet would do best in a quiet home.

Update from Foster Home: Comet follows his person around all the time. He does his business outside but wants his person to go with him. Comet would do best in a home where there is someone home most of the time. His favorite place is his person's lap. He is crate trained and happily goes into it every night at bed time. Now that he is comfortable he has lots of puppy energy and he is finally starting to play more with toys.

PENDING ADOPTION

Hair/Color: Tan
Gender: Female

Breed: Chihuahua

Size: 8

Age: 2 years 6 months
Listed By: Furry Friends Rescue

Cookie was very pregnant and about to give birth at the shelter. She had no options left so we took her in. She was a shelter favorite and everyone adored her super sweet personality. Cookie loves people and giving kisses. She gave birth to her single puppy but sadly Cookie's pup died after about 10 days. Foster home is giving Cookie extra love and attention to get her through this loss.

Update from foster home: Cookie gets along with my other dogs, but tries to dominate them and gets protective of me. She may be best as only dog. She is extremely responsive to commands and is quick to learn and understand boundaries. Also, she does not do well in a crate, cries a ton, pretty much a bed sleeper. About 90% house-trained.

11/7/18:  Poor Cookie.  She was spayed and had her dental with 9 decaying tooth extractions!  She is now resting and healing.  Soon, she will feel so much better.

Daisy was adopted but due to her guardian's declining elder health and lack of funds for vet care, she returned Daisy due to her diagnosis of diabetes (need more vet care, tests, and medications), she was returned back to us. Daisy was very sick in Dec. 2017 and her foster home rushed her to emergency for hospital care. Poor Daisy had 3 days of IV and hospital care to save her. She is now a Sanctuary Dog at her hero foster home. Daisy now needs twice daily doses of injected insulin and periodic blood/urine/lab tests and needs to be monitoring for the rest of her life. So far her vet costs exceed $1,300.00 which her foster home covered. They are her angels and heroes to care for her and all her medical needs.

We took in Daisy last minute from a very crowded shelter on 10/28/14. She is very sweet and friendly. Great with other dogs and easy going. Daisy was covered with fleas and treated/bathed.

Update from her Foster Home: Adorable Dixie is doing great at her hero foster home! Dixie is absolutely perfect! She settled down very quickly and explores on her own (many shy dogs take a few days to adjust). She seems completely potty trained and hasn’t had a single potty accident. She has a good appetite, is very loving, happy and playful. Great with their small dog and playful. Dixie is very friendly with people and small dogs. Foster home has a cat used to dogs.

Dusty D6527 Hair/Color: Tan
Gender: Male

Breed: German Wirehaired Pointer Mix

Size: 50

Age: 2 years 9 months
Listed By: Furry Friends Rescue

Dusty (Watch my video!) was an 11th hour rescue from a shelter and about to lose his life the next morning. He had no options left and no one has stepped up to help him. The shelter contacted us and we rescued him.

Dusty was adopted from the shelter a year ago and returned due to lack of time to train him. He is moderately active, athletic, needs training, can jump up to face level (wants attention), will chew leash (excited) and needs more dog socialization. Dusty was fine with other nice shelter dogs but stiff. Dusty is unsure how to socialize (under-socialized). He was fine with a female dog that gave him kisses on his face.

Shelter staff says he is very friendly and lovable with people. Dusty loves attention and being petted. Many adore him. Once he gets his exercise/walk, he relaxes and settles down. Dusty needs a very experienced adult dog foster home with someone around more that has good training skills and is able to exercise him daily. More info. to come from his temp. foster home.

Update: Dusty is doing well at his foster home and learning. Knows basic commands. He listens until he gets the zoomies so he needs recall work. He needs someone around with good training skills to guide him. No cats. Fine with other dogs his size who are gentle nice with him and going for walks.

He has fear issues with loud noises on the streets when he walks and will pancake to the ground and freeze. Basic training tips are not working yet. Dusty will get up once he knows they are turning back to head home. He is happy and loves his walks on quiet trails. He is not a city dog. Dusty needs an adult home. Kids 12 yrs and up. Dusty need continue supervision and training. With his foster home, he is very lovable.


Ezekiel (Zeke)

Ezekiel (Zeke) Hair/Color: White With Tan, Yellow Or Fawn
Gender: Male

Breed: Maltese Mix

Size: 6

Age: 3 years 4 months
Listed By: Furry Friends Rescue
Hi, I need a temporary foster home while I wait to be adopted. Will you please foster me?

7/20/2018: Update from foster home: Zeke has come along way. When we got him he was so starved you could feel his ribs and hip bones. It's taken him a long time to trust, but with his abusive last home, that is what is expected. Loves his little squeaky toys (doesn't squeak them), just loves to carry around the house and when done carries them inside his kennel. Kind of a little toy hoarder. He also loves playing with his foster home's little female dog. Very adorable personality. Zeke would be great in a home as an only dog or with another small female companion. He would do best in a home with one person, preferable; female, since the male was the abuser in his last household. Ezekiel needs to learn that he is safe and feels loved. He will need an experienced, one person, adult-only home. NO KIDS since he may nip. Zeke also tries to guard his master. This will take an experienced home that knows to put Zeke away when he exhibits this behavior - most commonly when visitors come to house. He is content being somewhere by himself when guests are visiting. He prefers quiet routine walks around neighborhood. He is fearful at strange and busy places. We are looking for a new home with someone that is willing to work with him in the situations he is fearful of; public, etc.


Frankie D2682

Frankie D2682 Hair/Color: Red
Gender: Female

Breed: Pit Bull Terrier

Size: 40

Age: 9 years 10 months
Listed By: Furry Friends Rescue
Hi, I need a temporary foster home while I wait to be adopted. Will you please foster me?

Frankie came into FFR on 6/8/11 for our help to find her a new adoption home. Frankie is a very special dog. She comes from an abusive past and has flourished despite her past treatment.  She is very curious yet cautious of new experiences.  She does have high prey drive to other dogs and needs to be on leash at all times for control outside of her home.  She has learned to play with toys and sleep in her crate.  She is very smart and tries to avoid when she knows it’s time to do something she doesn’t want to do, so we are working on her obedience manners.  Frankie hasn’t had a lot of attention in her short life, so she is very reluctant to let you stop petting her.  With supervision, she ignored the foster home's cat & fine with same size male dog. Frankie needs a very experienced pack leader guardian to train her. Adult home. No kids.

**If you can't give her a home, but can donate to help with her boarding care and training, we greatly appreciate it.  Please be sure to note that your donation is for Frankie.

Update: Frankie is doing great at her trainer/boarding home. She went out for a social walk at a park and streets, and she was great meeting new people. She did ignored other barking dogs but did bark at dogs at a store. She needs a forever very experienced home.  Best as the only dog to continue her training.  We are paying for her boarding with a trainer/boarding home.


Frodo D4323

Frodo D4323 Hair/Color: Black With White
Gender: Male

Breed: Miniature Schnauzer

Size: 8

Age: 6 years 2 months
Listed By: Furry Friends Rescue

Frodo was rescued from a shelter.  He was nervous and timid at the shelter, but once out, he warms up and gentle friendly.  Frodo had blood in his urine and severe dental needs.  He was thin and unhealthy.  We took him to our vet for all his lab tests, x-rays and surgeries.  Turned out, he could of died from bladder blockage and infected swollen prostate.  Poor Frodo suffered for years in pain with no vet care and low quality diet (often causes bladder stones).  He needed antibiotic for infections and surgeries to remove a marble size bladder stone (analysis revealed Struvite Stones), exploratory surgery for one testical in his abdominal (large incision), dental, extraction of many rotten teeths, and treatment for his swollen prostate (infection).  Frodo's surgery was successful and he has been healing at his hero foster home.   He is now feeling much better and eating holistic/fresh foods (home cooked/fresh).  Frodo enjoys his daily walks, meeting other dogs, having someone home, lap/sofa time, and very sweet.  With time, and follow vet visits, he will continue to get healthier.   

Now that Frodo healed from all his surgeries, he is more spunky, active and loves his daily walks.   He needs a home with someone around every few hours and home with backyard so he can urinate every few hours.  Bladder stone issues are caused from dogs that hold it to long and can't relieve themselves for long hours.  Frodo is a tiny small dog so he is early middle age and needs daily walks, would love hikes and more socials.  

We appreciate and greatly need donations to pay for all his vet care, which cost us $3,140.00    Miracle Club doggie.    

Dr. Karen Becker, Bladder Stones in Dogs:
I recommend feeding a low-carb, grain-free, starch-free, potato-free, preferably fresh food diet. My second choice is canned food or a dehydrated or freeze-dried diet that has been reconstituted with lots of water.

Sweetie Kirby was timid at the shelter but warms up. He got all his vet care and is now relaxing at his foster home. At home he is now a wiggly, busy body, curious, friendly, and happy little guy. He is very thin and will need to put on some weight. More info. to come as he learns and relaxes.

From Foster Home: Very active boy. He is so exuberant that he jumps up to get to people. Not throwing his weight against you, just jumping to get your attention. It is so much his personality that I don't hold out much hope for training it out of him. No cats, will chase.  House-training is still in progress.

Kirby is very active. We are looking for a home for him where someone is home more with another small dog playmate.

She would not walk on the leash and pancakes down.   Poor Lassie is missing her front lower teeth and both her lower canines are grounded down. She was probably locked in a cage for years and chewed on the bars.  Lassie gave birth to her 6 puppies on 2/19/19 at the shelter.  She was nervous for first few days and would hunker down to the floor on leash.  Despite nursing her pups with all the shelter noise, she warmed up to staff.

Liam D5122

Liam D5122 Hair/Color: Tan/yellow/fawn With White
Gender: Male

Breed: Terrier / Yorkshire Terrier Mix

Size: 17

Age: 8 years 9 months
Listed By: Furry Friends Rescue

Liam was rescued from a crowded shelter where he was nervous. Once out he warms up and is gentle & friendly.  Poor Liam suffered for years in pain with no proper vet care and badly neglected (left outside, skinny, badly matted) before he was dumped at a city shelter. Liam had severe dental decay with infections which required major severe dental surgery with x-rays, biopsy and 14 infected/rotten decayed teeth extracts. The infections was so bad it caused two holes (oronasal fistulas) on the roof of his mouth, to his nasal cavity (causing food & water to travel to his nasal area so he cannot eat properly). The hole required additional repair surgery.  Huge thanks to his great foster home for all their TLC and driving him back/forth to the vet for all his vet needs.  Update 9/10/15: Liam is doing great and very happy, sweet & friendly. The two holes on the roof his mouth to his nasal cavity has not healed since his major dental surgery. FFR has taken care of all his needs which is very costly.  Vet bills are over $2,000. Donations greatly needed & appreciated to help Liam!

10/28/15: He saw the Dog Oral Specialist. $1200, xray & biopsy. Awaiting biopsy. No bone in room, diseased roof tissue. Repair might not be possible. Awaiting test results. Donations needed to help cover his $3,200 vet bills so far.

1/25/16 update:
Unfortunately, all of Liam's tests, cultures and his biopsy came back negative (meaning, no info) from two local specialists and the UC Davis specialists. One specialist suggested that is is perhaps an auto-immune illness (though blood test does not show anything) for the holes on the roof of his mouth (caused by his horrible neglected mouth/teeth infections when he was dumped). So, now Liam is on steroids help him. Donations to help us with Liam's vet expenses are greatly needed and appreciated.  His vet bills are now over $9,000. 

Update from his Foster Home: Liam is doing very well with the steroid treatment. The holes in his mouth have stabilized and do not seem to be getting bigger. He now only needs to see the vet and get a blood test once a year. He is able to eat regular kibble and Primal raw food nuggets. Liam takes his steroid pills every other day with his food with no problems. Because of the holes in his mouth, he prefers to drink water from a bottle (water bottles that small pets like rabbits drink from) than from a water bowl. He is a happy and sweet dog that loves his walks, car rides, and cuddling. Liam needs an experienced adult home. Miracle Club

Sanctuary dog: Maggie and her son, Calvin, were rescued from Hayward Shelter on 8/20/08. Both were badly neglected. Maggie was never groomed and extremely matted. But after her bath & make-over grooming, she is now beautiful. She is friendly with people she trusts, then gentle, adorable and a sweetheart. Leary of strangers and will growl & nip. She did great at her two foster homes and was social, but months later, in a home, she became more fearful of strangers or new people who try to pet her head & learned to growl/nip to protect herself (insecure). She goes up to people for treats, but doesn't want to be petted unless she knows/trusts the person. Good on leash and sits for treats.

To protect Maggie, she is now a sanctuary dog with an FFR person whom she is bonded to. With person she bonds to she is very cooperative, easy-going and well behaved.

Sherlock D5098

Sherlock D5098 Hair/Color: White
Gender: Male

Breed: Lhasa Apso Mix

Size: 14

Age: 4 years 11 months
Listed By: Furry Friends Rescue

Sherlock was rescued from a crowded shelter. He is smart, curious, confident and gorgeous. Super people friendly, alert, snuggly and loves attention but he needs a leader to guide him. He can get anxious and nervous (Llasa personality) and will nip if scared.   He does not like being pushed, carried or kissed.  No fast grabs. Head sensitive and will nip.  He is good with other small dogs with proper introductions on leash, but he wants to be the top dog (alpha) at home, especially with other male dogs. Sherlock is best as only dog in household.  Cannot coddle him and need guidance. No sofa space or he will guard his space.  He did well with other dogs during our testing and on walks, but not in home.  Loves walks and yard to go out for potty biz and sun.  He needs adult very experienced guardian only .Sherlock is sensitive and needs the guardian to be his leader with confidence (he will sense anxious/nervous person) and tell him what to do vs coddling (he will get confused). Guardian must be confident and guide him. He was leary and fearful of young kids (will nip). At home, he likes to follow person around but does not like his face petted and may nip if stressed. Sherlock needs access to fenced yard, no apt living. He needs daily exercise and someone home more or someone that can consistently give him a mid-day break. With our volunteers, he is friendly, walks well on leash and listens. Will snuggle in our laps (both women & men) when he trusts the person.

Sherlock wants to bond to confident person who will guide him and he will listen. Smart. At his foster home, we learned that Sherlock is very allergic to Dust Mites (in carpet). After many vet visits and holistic vets, he is now on raw diet only and herbs for his allergy. So he needs a home with no carpet to avoid dust mites. He needs experienced quiet adult home and NO KIDS.


Snowy D5051

Gender: Male

Breed: Miniature Poodle / Dachshund Mix

Size: 16

Age: 11 years 6 months
Listed By: Furry Friends Rescue

Snowy was rescued on 9/29/14 from a Santa Clara County shelter. Snowy is a very gentle and sweet dog. Very affectionate and does great with other dogs. He is recovering from severe neglect where he lived his life outside. Due to his severe matting he ended up having many open skin wounds which are now healing. He is undergoing extensive rehab, learning to live inside a house.

FOSTER HOME UPDATE - 13 October 2014 Snowy is doing fantastic in his foster home. As the foster home states, "he is the perfect dog!" He does great with their dog and all family members. He enjoys going on walks and hikes. Since being in his foster home, we have discovered that Snowy may have a neurological/behavioral issue. He seems to be unaware of when he needs to go to the bathroom. He tends to soil himself without realizing it. Snowy was examined by a vet and all tests seemed to show no neurological issues. Instead the vet thought his issue was more behavioral, however there is no way to be 100% certain. The foster home has him wear diapers and it works great. Snowy will need that special person willing to take him as he is and boy will his forever home get so much more in return. He is just a love bug, loves being around people and especially loves to snuggle and be held. He is one of those dogs that has been through so much he now deserves his forever loving home.

Snowy is now a Sanctuary Dog. Donations appreciated for his supplies (diaper/pads) & vet care.

Please help us raise $4,000 for Snowy's recent emergency vet care, supplies and future medical needs.

Sparky is one of the 3 puppies we rescued from a backyard home. Their 2 moms gave birth to 9 pups (accident from stray male dog). They all lived outside in their backyard kennel with dog run, had no training, no walks, under-socialized and no vet care. Moms look like spaniel mix, about 35 lbs. Dad was a stray dark color short leg dog. All 9 pups are friendly with their prior family (adults/teens) but out of their yard they are nervous, shy and under-socialized. All the puppies got their vet exam, vaccinations, de-worm and ID chip. All are now relaxing and learning at their foster homes.

He is very cute, very sweet, and now wagging his tail and warming up to his foster home with another dog. Sparky likes to snuggle up with his people.  Sparky follows their female dog around and loves hanging with her.  He needs another dog at home for his happiness.  Alone, he might be too nervous.  With time he will learn to go out for walks, get used to indoor home life and go to puppy socials. He will need Puppy Training and continued socializing. More info. to come.

We rescued Titan from a shelter (Alameda) where he was running out of time.  At the shelter, he was dog friendly.  But once in a foster home, he started to become dog-aggressive to new dogs and had redirect behavioral problem.  Very friendly with people.  But there's something special about Titan so we decided to put in an extra effort to help him and is responding very well with dogs on-site now at a training facility. At the facility, he now avoids trouble with other dogs, but still needs supervision.  He's a beautiful dog, very affectionate and loves people.  Loves to play ball and well behaved at facility.

Titan is now a Sanctuary Dog.

Sweetie Tucker was rescued from a crowded shelter. He was timid at the shelter, but once out, he is very sweet. Tucker is a friendly, quiet, and gentle dog. He did well at our vet office. More information to come as Tucker relaxes at his foster home!

Update from foster home: Tucker is just starting to come out of his shell. Not good with big dogs but good with small nice dogs and people.  Tucker tries to be the top dog with other dogs.  Need guidance.  On one of his walks he saw a cat and ignored it so he may be good with cats but too soon to know for sure. Needs home with attached yard for continued, regular, house-training.
