Umbrella of Hope 'Be Our Pet'



1 yr old, 4 lb Chihuahua SPAYED FEMALE for ADOPTION

 

 

Meet Miss Rockruff Pokemon
 
Rockruff joins us from San Jose Animal Care Center and San Jose Animal Advocates where she was treated by Tails of a Shelter Vet
 
Rockruff is a 1 yr old, 4 lb Chihuahua. She will be spayed, microchipped, vaccinated and is free of parasites.
 
Rockruff is SUPER SHY and timid. She is terrified of people that she does not know. Once she knows you, she does not want to leave your lap and she loves to be carried in your arms.
 
Rockruff needs a quiet home that is patient and understanding. She isn't going to be a 'take everywhere' dog where people are man-handling her because she is so little and cute. She is NOT a plaything for children and right now we are rating her for homes with quiet children over the age of 12 (this could change as we get to know her better).
 
It is possible that with love and stability, she could turn into a dog who loves strangers but that is going to take time, patience and homework. Currently we would recommend that she be given her own space (room, crate etc) when new people are over where she can decompress as she is TERRIFIED of them.
 
She will be INCREDIBLY bonded with people that she knows and trusts and will be a velcro dog with them. The scariness of strangers will likely depend on how much desensitization that is done with her by her adopter (we have started it and are happy to explain the technique to a potential adopter).
 
Rockruff is not leash trained but we are working on that. She is pee pad trained in a small area, but she will not ask to go out (she will potty outside if taken). She LOVES the crate (not as much as the lap) and views it as a safe space. She is quiet on car rides in the crate.

Umbrella of Hope does not have any strict rules on ages of children because all children are different, but our best approximation is that this animal would do best with children over the age of 12 (pretty firm on this but if your child is a unicorn who has experience with tiny SHY dogs, feel free to email)

Umbrella of Hope is a non-profit animal rescue based out of Pittsburg, CA that rescues animals off death row from local shelters. We offer rebates of adoption fees after completion of obedience classes and CGC titles. 

Also, ask us about our seniors for seniors program, where we adopt animals 5 years or older to qualified homes with a $5 donation as an adoption fee. All animals are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, treated for parasites and given any additional treatments (dental work, bloodwork etc) as recommended by our vet. Some of our senior animals have sponsorships for their food/vet care/medicine for the rest of their life at our vet in Pittsburg, CA (94565)

 Adoptions to veterans of the US Armed Services are ALWAYS free to thank you for your service.  Other retired public servants, please let us know what career you retired from and we can let you know if we offer any discounts for your adoption

Please send an email to the Umbrella Of Hope Animal Director with any inquiries at beourpet@gmail.com. Detailed emails will be answered first.  

We thank Maddie's Fund for their sponsorship, Well Pet Vet Clinic for providing most of our veterinary services, Lovely Grooming for our grooming needs, and Delta Dog Camp for training. We thank Memoirs of a Dog and Share the Joy Photography for the beautiful portraits of many of our animals and a special thanks to volunteer photographers Barbara, Kristy, Christine and Natalie.  Please support these businesses for supporting rescue!

About Umbrella of Hope

About Our Rescue Group...

Umbrella of Hope exists to rescue, rehibilitate, and rehome animals from shelter situations with a focus on East Contra Costa County, California. Our goal is to reduce the euthanasia of adoptable animals through increased adoptions of those animals already born. Help increase public safety by reducing the number of strays and feral animals through population control who might carry disease or pose other dangers to the community. Provide resources to pet owners to enable them to be responsible forever guardians of their companion animals. To increase public awareness of homeless pets, encourage spay and neuter of companion animals, and promote adoption for the acquisition of family pets.
