Boomer

Boomer Hair/Color: Yellow
Gender: Male

Breed: Labrador Retriever

Size: 87

Age: 1 year
Listed By: Furry Friends Rescue
Hi, I need a temporary foster home while I wait to be adopted. Will you please foster me?

Boomer (named after the lab in the Independence Day movie) is very active, friendly, happy, and totally untrained. He is very strong and has no leash training. Boomer is good with other dogs, and everyone that has met him adores him. He is a happy doggie!

Boomer needs a very experienced and active guardian to really exercise and train him daily. Boomer just received his vet care, and more information is coming soon as we learn more about him. 

7/17/19 Update from his foster/trainer:  Boomer is fantastic and  a total family dog for active guardian.  He totally loves the attention from people.  Eager to please.  He does play ball..not off the hook but he really enjoys.  He loves swimming in their pool.  Boomer is very sweet, never tries to jump on me, great with other dogs and no resource guarding.  Not a noisy fellow either.  He loves and I mean..LOVES...to be handled and petted.  Boomer has a good amount of energy, but not unmanageable, just wants to be near people.  He seems to like both men and women.  Tested him around cats, but gets a bit to excited, but not prey drive..just goofy like he wants to play with them.  Just need basic training, leash training and daily exercise/walks.  Boomer is sweet-heart!

Hi, I need a temporary foster home while I wait to be adopted. Will you please foster me?

Calypso was adopted from us July 2015, but his previous adopters just took him to the shelter on 4/3/19, vs contacting us.  They stated due to move.  We take all our dogs back for life. We will post his current photo soon.  He is friendly with shelter staff.   Everyone adores him.  At our vet exam, he has a golf ball size lump hanging from his left leg hock which we had removed and he needed dental with extractions.   Need donations to help cover his surgery bills.  $1,200.  5/1/19:  He is doing great at his hero foster home with another dog.  Calpyso is now healthy, happy and playful with their dog.   He is adorable.   New photo to come.

Original post when we first rescued him:  Calypso was rescued on 6/1/15 from a shelter. He is friendly and good with other dogs. He had his dental and now feeling much happier. Getting healthy with holistic quality food and treats. Charming Calypso loves his toys (tosses around), daily walks & playing with other dogs! He is friendly, active, agile and affectionate. For his happiness, he would love another dog at home, someone around more, daily exercise (active person for walks/hikes) and holistic healthy food! Calypso can jump up to a table, so he needs supervision. He was groomed and now feels great!

5/8/19 update from his foster home: Calypso is doing great in his foster home. He has recovered remarkably from his surgeries. He loves his playmate, Sophie, a Jack Russell, and plays very well with her. He has been introduced to neighboring dogs and was very good with them. He’s a sweet boy with a very tender loving disposition. He does love to eat, snuggle and play. He listens well and is very social. He has manners, but if there’s food around he tends to forget (very treat motivated). He had some separation anxiety the first few days, but now he knows the routine of his foster home and he realizes they’re not abandoning him. He is house trained. Loves to be outside, a lot. He would do well with an adult, kids 12 yrs+,  home that will walk him daily, have a backyard for him to explore and chase squirrels and can give him lots of love. Calypso is a very sweet dog that deserves a forever loving home.

6/21/19 Update.  Need Foster Home:  Calypso did great at a Doggie Day Care.  Friendly with all and plays with other dogs.  Poor Calypso now needs a new foster home due to foster's home family illness.  


Daisy D5084

Daisy D5084 Hair/Color: Tan/yellow/fawn With White
Gender: Female

Breed: Chihuahua (Long Haired) Mix

Size: 10

Age: 7 years 2 months
Listed By: Furry Friends Rescue

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. She has bad teeth and will get her dental on Monday. Meanwhile, she is now relaxing at her wonderful foster home and getting TLC.

Hi, I need a temporary foster home while I wait to be adopted. Will you please foster me?

Dandy was nervous and timid at the shelter. Once we rescued him he did fine at our vet office. Quiet and friendly. Now at his foster home, in one day, he is very happy, confident, friendly, affectionate, and playful with foster home's small dog. Dandy will need time to learn, attend puppy school and socials. He is tiny and adorable. More info. to come.


Ezekiel (Zeke)

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

Breed: Maltese Mix

Size: 6

Age: 3 years 8 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: 10 years 1 month
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 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

PENDING ADOPTION

Hair/Color: Black With White
Gender: Male

Breed: Miniature Schnauzer

Size: 8

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

Frodo was rescued from a shelter. He was nervous and timid at the shelter, but once out, he warmed up, he is gentle friendly.  Frodo was unhealthy, thin and sick.  He had blood in his urine and severe dental needs. We took him to our vet for all his lab tests, x-rays and surgeries. Turned out he could have died from a large bladder stone blockage and infected swollen prostate. Poor Frodo suffered for years in pain with no vet care. He needed antibiotic for his infection and surgeries to remove a marble-sized bladder stone (analysis revealed Struvite Stones), exploratory surgery for one testicle in his abdominal (large incision), dental, extractions of many rotten teeth, and treatment for his swollen prostate (infection).  Frodo's surgeries were successful.  After months of TLC and vet follow up, he is now healed from all his surgeries and very loved.  He is eating holistic/fresh foods (home cooked/fresh) with more moisture.  Frodo enjoys his daily walks, hikes, playing ball, meeting other dogs, having someone home, and lap/sofa time.  He is very sweet, spunky and playful.  Frodo needs a home with someone around every few hours with a backyard so he can urinate as needed.  Bladder stone issues usually are caused from poor diet and dogs that have to hold it too long and can't relieve themselves for long hours. Frodo is a tiny small dog so he is early middle age.  He is social and loves long walks/hikes.  

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

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.


Jason D6644

Gender: Male

Breed: German Shepherd

Size: 87

Age: 3 years 6 months
Listed By: Furry Friends Rescue
Hi, I need a temporary foster home while I wait to be adopted. Will you please foster me?

Poor Jason was left abandoned and tied to a street pole. He ended up at a shelter where he was confused and nervous at first. After a couple of days he relaxed. Jason was fearful at our vet office. However, within a few hours at our temporary foster home and trainer, he began adjusting and warmed up fast. Jason loves treats, knows basic sit and down commands, and is friendly. He needs basic training and an experienced guardian. Jason seems to be a working line German Shepherd and is very handsome. He will be great loyal buddy and hiking buddy. Jason is dog-friendly and will back down to dominant dogs. He is named after the handsome Aquaman actor. He will chase cats.

He is a goof ball and loves being petted/scratched.  Friendly with everyone.  Polite and smart.  Loves to play with water.  Plays with other dogs.  Loves to hang out with people and calm to relax.  

Donations are greatly needed and appreciated to help us pay for his vet care, training and boarding, over $2,000.   To save his life before PTS, we had to rescue him and emergency board him while we search for a foster home for him.  

Update:  Jason needs a foster home or forever adopter. He is well behaved, smart and friendly with all.  He loves his 1 1/2 hour daily walks.  He did great at his temp. foster home with their GSD.

Need vacation foster home, July 20th to Aug. 4th.

She is very friendly and active. Good with other dogs but can be dog dominate with some dogs.  Katniss needs a very experienced guardian to guide and continue her training. She had a mild ear infection which was treated and she is fine now.  Needs experienced guardian for training and exercise.  She is doing well but now needs a home for one on one training.  She is dominate with some dogs and playful with others at doggie day care.  Katniss would be a great best friend and hiking buddy!   


Kerry

Kerry Hair/Color: White
Gender: Female

Breed: Spaniel Mix

Size: 11

Age: 8 months 2 weeks
Listed By: Furry Friends Rescue

Poor Kerry was very scared and nervous at the shelter. She is under-socialized and untrained. She will not walk on a leash, but with a slow greeting, she warms up to be held and pet. At the shelter, she had a mild infection which was treated, and she is now fine. She was good meeting other dogs which helps her feel safe. Kerry was nervous at our vet office but allowed all handling. Quiet, she is now relaxing at her hero foster home and is doing well. Not as shy anymore, Kerry is playing with their dogs and lovable. 

Update from her foster home: Kerry follows and plays with their other dogs, especially Westley, so they feel strongly she needs another dog at home for her happiness.  Alone, she is nervous.   Kerry and Westley are best friends and would love to adopted together.

Kimo D6612

Kimo D6612 Hair/Color: White
Gender: Male

Breed: Bichon Frise / Miniature Poodle Mix

Size: 27

Age: 4 years 1 month
Listed By: Furry Friends Rescue

Kimo was nervous at shelter but warms up once out. Good with dogs. He was badly matted and neglected. Kimo did great with our vet and had to be shaved down. Huge thanks to Tama Veterinary Hospital for squeezing him in and shaving him.

Once our foster home picked him up and took him home, he was smiling and very happy. Soon he will be healthy and gorgeous. More info. to come on Kimo. We are not sure of his breed mix. His size and personality seems to be Bichon mix.

Update: At his foster home he learned their doggie door and follows their dog. Dogs are not playing, but fine hanging out. Easy going. Good on walks, stays close to foster mom, affectionate, and gives kisses. So far ignoring their cat.

Update from his 2nd foster home with another male dog: He knows his name, sits, and walks well on leash. Sleeps super well in his crate, indifferently co-exists with other dog in household, unless he has a chance to chase him with a toy at high speed around the back yard. He needs a home with yard and has moderate energy. Loves to sit with me to do my work or hang out while husband gardens. Meets children and new people well as long with a nice intro. He is acting startled less, but when he does, he propels himself several feet. Kimo likes going out to restaurants and walks in general. Very sweet social companion dog, one of our top four in sweetness+cuddliness from all our many foster dogs.  With time, as he becomes comfortable, he wants to move up the pack order with other dog in home.  He needs guidance to learn he is 2nd dog and wait his turn.  Fine as only dog in a household since he wants all the attention.

Size: 12

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

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.  


Lassie D6603

Lassie D6603 Hair/Color: Tan/yellow/fawn With Black
Gender: Female

Breed: German Shepherd / Collie Mix

Size: 62

Age: 4 years 5 months
Listed By: Furry Friends Rescue

We rescued her and her puppies from a shelter. Lassie was a stray and found hiding under a car in Oakland. She was taken to the shelter, where she was nervous, sad and shut down. 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.

Lassie loves treats and very gentle sweet. She is a loving mom caring for her pups and allows staff to pet and handle. Lassie is now resting and caring for her pups at her hero foster home. She is now very happy and very sweet. Lassie just needs time to feel safe with her pups and get healthy. Soon, she will be very healthy, happy and thrive at her foster home with her babies. Lassie is beautiful and so sweet.

She hasn't met cats while in her foster home so we don't know how she is with cats. She seems to be fine with other dogs but it is tough to know as she is still a mommy looking out for her pups. Seems mostly house-broken but as she is willing to spend more time away from pups the foster home will learn more about whether she is fully house-broken and how she is with other dogs. She definitely likes meeting new people.  More info. to come.

Update 3/25/19:  Lassie is a great mom and very patient with her pups, who are now over 5 weeks old.   Soon, in about 2-3 weeks, she needs a new foster home.  Her puppies now have teeth and licking slurry mix (Raw Goat's Milk, Honest Kitchen).   She will need a new foster home soon so her puppies don't continue to nurse on her with their sharp baby teeth.   Lassie needs a quiet routine experienced adult home to give her time to adjust, relax and learn.  She is not comfortable yet on leash for walks, and will pancake down.  Foster home is now working with her with walks in they yard and short walks out front.  She has met one dog, but ignores.  Lassie probably grew up and lived in a backyard so she was not trained, walked nor socialized.  She is super sweet, gentle and loving.  Great with people.  She is fine meeting family dog that visits but to busy with her pups so not focused to play or engage with other dogs.  

4/28/19:  Her pups are now grown up.  Lassie now needs her own foster home or forever home so she can rest, learn, heal and get TLC.  She is bonded to her current foster home and adopted puppy, Leon.  She finally felt happy and relaxed to play with her pups.  Lassie is now walking on leash for short walks and housetrained to go to foster home's backyard. She needs a very experienced home with someone around enough to help guide her and maybe another dog.  Alone, she is nervous and misses her foster home person and Leon.  She needs to sleep in bedroom or with another dog as she adjusts and trust her new people.  Lassie was neglected for years, so she need time to trust, bond and feel safe in a new home.  Usually takes about 2-3 weeks for a dog to feel at home, learn new routine and bond to new guardians.  She is a gentle sweetie, smart and sensitive.  Once she adjusts, she is easy going and calm.  

5/30/19: Lassie has been at her new foster home for 4 weeks. Now that she has settled in, she is no longer anxious or shy. She is very social with humans and dogs, curious, playful, friendly and loving. She is house-broken, no accidents. She still needs training with dog commands and walking on the leash. She spends the day chasing squirrels and plays often with her foster dog friend. She will need a very experienced home and dedicated care for the first few weeks to help her overcome fear and separation anxiety and re-establish trust and routine. She is a very beautiful dog and will make a great lifelong companion.


Liam D5122

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

Breed: Terrier / Yorkshire Terrier Mix

Size: 17

Age: 9 years
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

Size: 31

Age: 14 years
Listed By: Furry Friends Rescue

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.

Breed: Pug Mix

Size: 18

Age: 3 years 6 months

Pippin was rescued from a crowded shelter. He was nervous but warmed up. He is sweet, dog and people friendly. Pippin is very happy at his foster home. He is playful with their dog and very sweet. So far he has been good with their cat. Pippin is resting from his vet care and neuter surgery. Doing great! He sure loves his sofa time. Adorable!

Update from Foster Home: Pippin is a very sweet little guy. He's pretty much fully house-trained as long as you let him out 2-3 times/day. Pippin does great with their cats. Mostly he ignores them. They jump on the bed or couch next to him and he doesn't even move. He does try to eat cat food if he gets the chance. He's pretty responsive when called. He does try to jump a lot, and he's a climber for such a little guy. Mostly he just wants to be as close to you as possible and always has his tail wagging. He likes to sleep under a blanket. Pippin goes to doggie day care so he is an easy-going cuddly dog when he gets home from his day of playing. 


Reeses

Reeses Hair/Color: Brown/chocolate With Tan
Gender: Female

Breed: Spaniel Mix

Size: 15

Age: 1 year
Listed By: Furry Friends Rescue

Reeses 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. She is very cute, gentle and warming up to her foster home with another dog. With time she will learn to go out for walks, indoor home life and go to puppy socials. She will need Puppy Training and continue socializing. More info. to come.

Update from foster home: Reeses needs a home with attached fenced yard for potty biz (comfortable for her vs on walks).  She needs a experienced guardian and must have another small dog at home. She is scared of large dogs.  Kids 8 years and up since fast movement, noise and grabs scare her.  At her foster home, she loves playing with their small dog, zooming out to yard, 1 hour daily walks and snuggly.

Update: He is now doing much better and not counter surfing. He loves playing with another dog at Red Rover Doggie Day Care and very active. Sammy would be happiest with another playful dog, unless the home can truly exercise and take him out for dog socials. He is well behaved for our car rides and on leash at our showcases. Sammy wants to bond to person and be your best friend!

Sammy needs someone around, home with yard, maybe another dog playmate or dog socials to play. He is active. Adult home. Kids 12 yrs+. Once he gets his daily exercise, he is very well behaved.  He is doing great at his foster home and sweetie!


Sherlock D5098

Sherlock D5098 Hair/Color: White
Gender: Male

Breed: Lhasa Apso Mix

Size: 14

Age: 5 years 2 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

Snowy D5051 Hair/Color: White
Gender: Male

Breed: Miniature Poodle / Dachshund Mix

Size: 16

Age: 11 years 10 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.

Poor Sparkle was timid at the shelter and was neglected with matted coat.
He took a few days and warmed up.  Then very sweet, friendly, good with other dogs and enjoys hanging out with people.  Sparkle got all his vet care and complete shave down with bath.  He had a few fox tails embedded in his matts and infected puncture wounds with pus under his huge tail matt.   Vet gave him antibiotics to prevent infection on his tail.  Sparkle now feels so much better.  He is doing great at his hero foster home.  Super sweet, quiet, calm and gentle personality.   More info. on his personality to come from his foster home.  Photo of him after shave down.

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.

Poor Westley lost his home and we took him in. His guardian got him as a puppy (mom is a maltese), but due to lack of time, no time to train and move, she urgently needed a home for him. Huge thanks to our volunteer for taking him in last minute and driving him to us. Westley is very friendly, social, loves other dogs and gives kisses. He will go to our vet to get all his needs. Westley is a sweetie. More info. to come from his foster home.

Update:  Westley is super social and friendly.  He loves hanging out with his dog buddies at his foster home and going out on daily walks.  He loves going out to socials, parks and beaches with his foster home dog buddies.  Especially Kerry.  Foster home would prefer he is adopted into a home with another small dog or with Kerry as a pair for his true happiness.
