My story

Thank you for your inquiry. Pickles has an adopter but we have to wait for them to go pick him up after the stay at home is lifted. Once he is picked up we will remove his profile. Please do not write to us for an application. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Meet Pickles! Pickles is a fun loving, good natured cutie with great expressive ears and a soft coat. He is about 2 1/2 years old and 8 lbs.

Pickles may be a tiny guy but he comes with a big personality. He loves to be loved and when you go to pet him he immediately rolls on his back and wiggles around. Pickles is great with everyone, of all ages. Humans aren’t the only ones he gets along with! He runs, wrestles and chases the other fosters dogs in the house and he gets along well with them. Pickle lives with cats but he has been known to chase them around the house.

Pickles is mostly house trained with few accidents and he usually goes on the pee pads. He could use some help getting it down pat. He also knows a few commands and comes when you call his name but like some rescue dogs, this smartie just needs a little time and consistency to master it all.

Pickles is quite inquisitive and excited for life. He loves to bathe in the sun, look for squirrels and ensure you are safe from strangers. But when night falls, Pickles loves to bury himself in blankets and burrow in the bed under some covers. He has no problem through the night and just wants to be near to you. Are you the one to give him the life he deserves?

Pickles wouldn’t do well left alone for a full work day and would like to have a canine companion if his parents are gone that long. He would do fine with no other dog as long as someone was around during the day.

Pickles is being fostered in Napa. CA. His adoption fee is $275.00.

All our dogs are in private foster homes and arrangements to meet our dogs occur after an application has been received.

Additional adoption info

The first step to adopting is to complete the Adoption Application and submit it to the Dog Zone Rescue. You will be contacted right away by a representative once we receive it. Our application process includes an adopter, a veterinarian if you already have a pet personal interviews, as well as a home Inspection to ensure the environment is safe for the dog. It usually takes no more than 2 -3 weeks from the time we receive the application for your dog to come home to you.

Our policy is to find the best home for each dog, where it will thrive in the environment of its new forever home. Although we work the applications on a first come, first served policy, it doesn't necessarily mean that the first application is the perfect fit. If the dog you applied for is not a good match for your home, we will make sure to work closely with you and your family to find which one of our precious dogs will be a great fit for your lifestyle. You can be assured that we do not misrepresent our dogs and we are absolutely honest when we tell you about our dogs.

Our adoption fee varies depending on the dog's breed and age. The range is $250- $300. Senior-to senior program: On dogs 10 years old and older we work on a case by case basis and will reduce fees where we can. We do offer training support with all our adoptions; just contact us if you need help. The dogs are nurtured in foster homes and given basic training and treated for any injuries or illnesses that we are aware of.

Go meet their pets

We do not have an adoption center, we occasionally are able to take some dogs to events which we will post here. All our dogs are kept in private foster homes and are seen by appointment only. Thank you so much for wanting to adopt.

More about this rescue

DogZone Rescue is a group of individuals who are dedicated to ending the pet overpopulation and senseless killing of adoptable dogs. Our foster dogs come from shelters throughout California; we also take in strays off the streets and owner surrenders. We work closely with private Foster homes that are critical to continue our mission to save these precious animals.

We are all unpaid volunteers, and 100% of the adoption fees go towards caring for our rescued dogs. It is our mission to rescue and provide safe haven to as many abused, abandoned, and unwanted dogs as we have room for. These dogs would otherwise die in kill shelters, on the streets, or meet any number of horrible ends that befall the unwanted. We don't discriminate; we save dogs, regardless of their age or condition.

Prior to every adoption, all of our dogs will be spayed/neutered, current on all vaccines, rabies, and microchipped. We rescue, nurture and place Senior Dogs & Special Needs Dogs, along with the young and healthy. Here you will find a variety of breeds and ages.

We are also always looking for dedicated volunteers that would like to help. In addition to foster homes, we always can use help with transports in your area and home visits. If you are able to dedicate a few hours each week, we would be happy to have you join our team.

Complete Vetting is provided to our foster dogs including Microchip, up to date on Vaccines, Wellness exam, Spay or Neuter. We have a network of knowledgeable people who have been in rescue for many years who can guide you as you help save a life. While in foster care we learn their personalities and temperaments as well as work with them on crate training, house training and basic house manners. Then we help our adopters while the dog settles in.
