Geo was found as a stray by animal control in Hayward. After examination by the shelter’s vet, it was determined that Geo has a grade 3 heart murmur. He was seen by a specialist and diagnosed with mitral valve disease which could eventually lead to congestive heart failure. Geo will need to be on heart medication for the remainder of his life. Life expectancy is hard to tell, probably 2-3 years? He will need moderate exercise (nothing strenuous). He should avoid being outside on really hot days. Estimated annual costs of his treatment is around $600 (medications and 6-month check-ups). Nobody’s Perfekt Dogs is offering to provide financial support for Geo’s vet costs, if needed.

Geo may be a little shy at first, but quickly warms up to people. The shelter approved him for all ages of kids (which is rare), but he needs to not overdue it with strenuous play. He is good with other dogs his size. Not sure about cats.

About Nobody's Perfekt Dogs

About Our Rescue Group...

We specialize in finding homes for dogs where “imperfection” is tolerated in exchange for a lifetime of love and devotion.

Our foster dogs have been discarded by the people they once trusted, only to find themselves in a shelter with no other options.

We want them to have a second chance to receive the love and care they deserve.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We typically have adoption showings every weekend at local pet supply stores (PetSmart in San Leandro, for instance).

Our Adoption Process...

We specialize in "hard to place dogs" due to their breed, age, minor behavioral or medical conditions. We strive to keep our fees reasonable ($125), and we have sponsorship funds to help with fees, if needed.

After the application is approved, the prospective adopter must take the dog on a trial-basis "sleepover" for a few days, before finalizing the adoption.

We require landlord approval if the applicant is renting their living space.

We only do adoptions in San Francisco Bay Area and surrounding regions.
