Tiger-striped Lil Bit loves her toys! She is looking for a family experienced with dogs and kids 16 and older who can teach her how to play appropriately and help her learn the joys of being a great family dog. Lil Bit would love to be your only dog at home. She may have dog friends and playmates that are carefully matched, but dog parks are not recommended for her. If you ask Lil Bit about cats, she'd say they are for chasing! Sign up for one of our Bully Breed classes to teach your new girl how to be a star!

Letter from Lil Bit (as dictated to her foster mom)

Dear Future Adopter(s),

I've lived with my foster family for a few weeks now and am ready to move on to my forever home. Let me tell you "a little bit" (pardon the pun!) about me. I really like hanging out with my people, sitting beside them on the couch watching TV, getting cuddles and having my tummy rubbed. I must also admit I spend a fair amount of time sleeping. I do get excited, however, when my foster parents get the treat bag ready and put my harness and leash on. Then I know it's time for a WALK! In fact, right after dinner, I go and stare at my foster dad to let him know I'm ready for my evening walk. I try to sit patiently at the door, waiting until they tell me it's OK to go out. I am told that I am an excellent "loose leash walker." I hardly ever pull and I look back at my person frequently, hoping for a treat! When I pass a person or notice another dog in the distance, I stop and look with my tail wagging, but then continue on with my walk. I know sit and stay very well, and could probably learn some other tricks if someone taught me. I'm not much interested in playing fetch with the ball. As a matter of fact, if you throw it, you will probably have to go pick it up yourself. My favorite nighttime sleeping arrangement is on my foster parents' bed. After kissing them good night, I move to the foot of the bed where I sleep all through the night. I am very housebroken and will let my parents know when I need to go outside. I also come when I am called. My foster family tells me that I'm one of the sweetest dogs they have fostered and very easy to manage. I especially like treat rewards and most of all, I just love to please my people. I can't wait to meet you!

With love,
Lil Bit

Our Adoption Process...

The process for adopting an animal may take up to an hour or longer in order to get to know and understand the animal you are bringing into your home for life. The Sonoma Humane Society prides itself on successful adoption rates because of the time we spend with you and your prospective pet upfront. First you must decide what type of animal is "right" for you. Are you more of a dog or a cat person or are you interested in a smaller animal like a rabbit, guinea pig or pocket pet? You must have a clear understanding of yourself, your family and your lifestyle to answer this question correctly. Many people need several visits before they can make the decision to adopt and we encourage you to take all the time you need to make your new relationship permanent.

Adoption Fees

Our animals receive the highest quality of medical care, diets, training and socialization to become a permanent part of your home. Our adoption fees do not cover the expenses for each animal that enters our facility. Thanks to donations from the community, we are able to offer more than any other shelter in the County.
