My story

Petey: 6 months old - male

And, a message from his foster


He is curious without being mischievous. He will take any opportunity to play but will comply with downtime when needed. He is still hesitant with men but will quickly fall right into their lap once he feels them out. Not much of a barker but sometimes there will be something that gets his attention and he will try and use his voice. So far he seems to be potty trained as no accidents in the house; he will whimper at the door to the backyard when he needs to go. He has no problem being in his crate and will voluntarily set himself up in there while I am working. He likes chew toys (toys without filling are probably best for him as he will open them up) but so far hasn’t gotten into any shoes, etc. He has learned to take cues from our dogs on what to do and respects their boundaries.

More about this rescue

Mutts and Runts Rescue was founded in 2017 after seeing the numerous strays, neglected and often abused animals in Bakersfield. Being a transplant, Brandi Reed was taken by surprise of the overpopulation of dogs and knew she needed to do something. In her first year, 100 dogs were placed into loving homes. Our rescue dogs typically consist of strays and severe medical cases. With limited fosters and volunteers, our long term goals are to improve our community outreach and financially assist other rescues when they take in cases we aren't able to physically assist. Mutts and Runts has extended to serve Reno, Nevada. Reno, having a large dog friendly community, has the opposite problem of Bakersfield- they don’t have enough dogs for people willing to adopt. Together, we’re able to help more dogs get their happy ending with loving families, additional support of fosters, volunteers, fundraising, and access to a wonderful rehab facility.
