Linus's Story...
Linus was just rescued from the shelter and needs a great home! Here is what the shelter had to say about this cutie:
Linus is a sweet guy who is a very young 6 years of age. He is a very polite guy and was extremely easy to put a leash on and take outside. We made a quick visit to the front area of the shelter, and he enjoyed being around the volunteers and staff. He wanted to meet everyone and give all of them kisses, and not one person was left out. In the play yard I offered Linus several different doggy treats and he just didn't seem interested. I then offered him a piece of string cheese, and I found his weakness. He sat on command when I asked him to sit, and then gave him a piece of string cheese as his reward. Linus is a huge cuddlebug and he loves to have his belly rubbed too. Linus is underweight and would benefit from a healthy diet to help increase his size. Linus also passed the shelter's behavior evaluation and was rated as being in the Orange Busy Bee category which means Linus is a naturally playful, curious and trusting canine. Take Linus for a walk everyday, and give him something to do. After his job is done, Linus will curl up in front of the fire in the evenings with you. (socially motivated) Linus is a dog that everyone likes when they meet him, and he will do well in a home where he can be a part of the family

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Linus, a Sacramento Hound (Unknown Type)/Shar Pei dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Hound (Unknown Type)/Shar Pei for sale in Sacramento, or seeking a Hound (Unknown Type)/Shar Pei dog from a breeder in Sacramento.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Sacramento already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Sacramento breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Hound (Unknown Type)/Shar Pei breeders who help with Hound (Unknown Type)/Shar Pei rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Sacramento paves the way for another one to be saved.
