Bixby is an adorable and unique looking Rat Terrier mix who comes to us from Berkeley.
Sadly, his elderly owner could no longer take care of him and to surrender him to the local animal shelter. When we heard his story, we knew we had to help this lovely senior dog find a forever home once more! Since arriving, Bixby has shown himself to be very trusting of new people and very well-socialized. He is friendly with dogs of all sizes, likes meeting new people, and loves going for walks. Bixby is a gentle and sweet dog who will make a wonderful companion!
Muttville is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization dedicated to improving the lives of senior dogs. On a local level, Muttville rescues senior dogs and finds them foster homes or gives them hospice. On a global level, Muttville provides information about caring for older dogs and support for people who do.
Through associations with shelters and other animal organizations, Muttville finds senior dogs that have been given up and are not likely to find adopted homes. Through outreach and networking, Muttville finds suitable foster homes for these dogs. Ultimately, Muttville will have its own facility to house dogs that are not yet placed, or that are unlikely to be placed.
