Facts about RACHEL

  • Color: Black - With White

This loyal devoted dog was left at a shelter with her seven newborn pups, and she was a fabulous mother, protective and committed.

The pups - who we have for adoption - are ready for homes and Rachel is too! She is a terrific dog who will be a fantastic companion and has great qualities. She is house trained, leash trained, loves riding in the car, can be crated and is extremely quick to bond with humans who treat her well. She will thrive in an active home where hiking and adventure are part of her daily life.

But she has a couple of rough edges, presumably from her previous (unknown) life. She can be fearful of new people and may bark at strangers at first. She will be a bit of a guard barker but can be easily distracted. She becomes very submissive if corrected, so gentle reward based training will work well with this sweet gal.

She will do very well with other dogs and is good with cats. Older kids would be ok but she is afraid of young children.


About Our Rescue Group...

Our adoption program is just one of the services we offer our community. We believe in prevention so we run monthly Free Vaccine Clinics for the residents of Alameda and Contra Costa Counties, as well as funding low cost and free spay and neuter surgeries to low income and homeless community members. Our adoptable pets come from two sources - directly from the community as owner surrenders, or from our local partner municipal shelters.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our pets are in foster homes in the Bay Area. We can usually arrange a meet and greet within a day or two.

We host adoption events outside the Berkeley Animal Care Services shelter (one of our close partner organizations) or at the store GEORGE in Larkspur Landing, in Marin. But these are not on a regular schedule as we do a lot of outreach work in our community and our weekends are sometimes taken up with those events. Please check our Facebook Page for details of events, or email us.

Our Adoption Process...

Our fee is $200 for pups or dogs and $100 for kittens or cats.

We ask you to complete an adoption application which is not available online yet, but can be emailed to you. We try to have adoptions which really meet the needs of the individual pet, we encourage multi pet households as most dogs and many cats are very social and need each other. We need to feel that this is a good fit for everyone, and we are as honest as we can be about the good and not sof good points of our adoptable pets. We want it to work!
