My story

Terrier Mix
Age: approx. 2 years
Female, Spayed
16 lbs

Adoption Fee: $125 (includes spay/neuter, microchip, vaccinations)

Lydia was confiscated from a hoarding situation in Fresno by animal control. She had just had puppies, They took Lydia, the puppies and 2-3 other dogs. A Bay Area local humane society took all the dogs. Lydia was VERY PROTECTIVE of her puppies. Humane society staff were unable to approach the puppies. After a few weeks they were able to separate the puppies from momma Lydia and place them in a foster home. However, Lydia still proved to be a challenge to work with in a shelter setting, and they couldn’t find a foster home willing to work with her. So the humane society contacted Nobody’s Perfekt Dogs Rescue to pull her into one of our experienced foster homes. Within a few days Lydia was thriving, bonding with the foster family and trying to engage the other dogs in play. Here is what her foster mom has to say about her:

“Lydia is a sweet, loving and curious dog with a few quirks. She loves playing with her foster sisters, but they do not have the endurance of Lydia. They fatigue quicker than she does and begin to give her warning signals to stop. Usually when that happens, she begins looking for toys to play with. She is good with the male adult in her foster home and sometimes barks to get him to play with her. It can look like she is being aggressive, but it is that she just wants to play. Lydia tends to be extremely affectionate with her foster mom and is happy to be in her lap or by her side. Her personality brings out the laughter in people around her. She does take time to get comfortable in new surroundings. It took her a few days to fully come out of her shell and now she owns it.”

Lydia would do well in a home with other playful dogs her size that can stand up to her dominant play style. She needs lots of attention, and wouldn’t do well in a home where she is left alone during the day. She can still be skittish in new environments or new activities, but with proper socialization in public settings, she will come around.

Please note that we do not adopt any of our dogs out to families with children under the age of 13.

Why adoption is a great option

Lydia, a San Leandro Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) for sale in San Leandro, or seeking a Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) dog from a breeder in San Leandro.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in San Leandro 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 San Leandro 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 Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) breeders who help with Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in San Leandro paves the way for another one to be saved.
