COURTESY POST: Shelby is a smart, athletic, beautiful all black German Shepherd dog. She is about 8 years old, but doesn't look it and it hasn't slowed her down. She knows all the basic commands like sit, come and stay and aims to please. She absolutely loves playing tennis ball and also likes to go on runs or go swimming.
Shelby has developed fecal incontinence over the last couple of years. We are no longer able to provide her with the lifestyle that she deserves. We are looking for a new home for her ideally on a property with acreage or with a larger back yard. It would be great if the owner already has a dog or dogs who she could play with throughout the day.
COURTESY POST: Sadie is a gorgeous female GSD, approximately 2 1/2 years old. She is spayed, up to date on all vaccinations, and in excellent health. O. This sweet girl adores kids of all ages. She is not aware of her own strength and size, so close supervision around infants and toddlers is recommended. She is actually happiest when romping around the house and yard with the kids. She is house trained with a pet door, will rest comfortably in an open crate, but panics when locked in. She is not a barker, but will alert if someone comes to the door. She walks well on a harness. She loves car rides. She would prefer to have someone home during the day. Sadie can be timid towards men and can exhibit submissive urination around them. Sadie is more comfortable around very passive dogs and will even relax enough to play and walk calmly on leash. Sadie loves to chase gophers, lizards and things that move fast, so cats are not a good idea. Our family doesn't feel we have the resources to help Sadie so,regretfully, we are looking for that special, dedicated family who is willing to help Sadie overcome her challenges. Could you be the ones willing to give Sadie her second chance at a perfect life? Contact: Kelly Nelson: 707-478-7705
COURTESY POST: Whitney is a playful, affectionate dog, but she doesn’t show those traits to just anyone. It takes time to get her out of her shell, but once you do she only wants love, attention, and belly rubs. Whitney is timid around some men and like any dog, she barks when she feels threatened or insecure. This is her way of communicating. In my own four months with her, she has never been reactive to me in any way. As an older dog of about 8-10 years, Whitney is typically interested in laying low, and being comfortable. She is good with other dogs, spayed, and current on all her vaccinations. She knows basic commands like lay down, sit, and stay. With a little bit of patience I know Whitney could make anyone’s house a home. Could you be the best and final family in this old gal's journey? Why not give Ms. Whitney a try!

Rocco is an easy going, easy to handle dog. His has limited eyesight so he does bump into walls pretty easy, especially in low lighted areas. Sociability: Rocco was calm, relaxed and quite during the cage presentation. He made no social eye contact with me once in the intake room and instead sniffed around, passed by me a few times but never gave any eye contact. Rocco stayed in place for a moment and then walked away after the first neck to tail stroke. He then stayed in place for the last two strokes. He calmly came over to me once I sat down and put his head in my lap and stayed focused on me once I began talking to him. He allowed all 5 teeth checks but did struggle slightly for 4 of them. Handling: There were no issues during any of the handling tests. He allowed all of them without struggle and remained in a calm, loose state the whole time. Arousal/Excitement: Rocco had a nice, gentle level of play. He took the rope toy and gave it a few chews, but was not able to really focus on it when I threw it for him to go after. He could tell where it dropped based on the sound and walked over trying to sniff it out. We presented him with a squeaky toy which he became more interactive with and went after when thrown, took it in his mouth and brought it back over. He seemed more engaged by the squeaky toy but never went to a full or high level of play. Food Bowl/Possession: Rocco resisted letting go of the possession item, but was not aggressive towards the hand and turned his head slightly away from it on the last reach in. With the food bowl he kept eating throughout each step but could have cared less about the assess-a-hand being around the bowl, in his food and pulling the bowl away. He allowed the assess-a-hand to push he face out of the bowl on the second time, but never reacted negatively towards the hand. Dog/Dog Intro: Rocco was interested in meeting Harley and walked right over to him, bumped him with his nose on Harley’s side and then walked away. He came back over to Harley after a moment with a non-aligned body and greeted him appropriately, allowing both dogs to sniff each other. Rocco’s body was consistently loose and tail was in a good neutral position. He stayed interested in Harley by sniffing his behind for a little longer and then turned away and was able to walk side by side for a moment before losing interest all together.
