My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

I am in a foster home and not at the shelter. If you are interested in adopting, submit an adoption questionnaire by email. Learn more here

This Dog is Available By Appointment Only

Meet Paloma, the one-of-a-kind deaf pup who is sure to steal your heart with her stunning blue eyes and unique combination of 5 different breeds (Australian Cattle Dog, GSG and Husky to name the main ones), as shown in her DNA test results.

This girl is full of confidence and is a quick learner. She loves going for car rides and gets excited as soon as she sees her harness. Paloma is a social butterfly who adores meeting new people and soaking up all the love and attention.

Paloma is already a pro at crate training and potty training and is a bundle of joy with a tail that never stops wagging. She is currently mastering leash skills and enjoys going on pack walks in the neighborhood, where she can show off her playful side. Paloma is a pack animal and even though she's surrounded by four giant Northern breeds that are over 80 pounds, she is adapting well and learning how to communicate with them.

Paloma is in search of a forever home with at least one other playful dog, where she can continue to grow and thrive. She will do best in a quieter area, as busy places can be overwhelming for her. As a high-energy, intelligent working breed mix, Paloma requires regular exercise and mental stimulation.

She is 3 years old and weighs 40 pounds. If you're looking for a special companion that will bring love and excitement to your life, Paloma is the one for you!

Additional adoption info

Thank you for considering adopting a shelter pet! There are two ways to adopt:
1. Visit our shelter (1101 29th Ave) Saturday or Sunday from 12-3pm, when we are open for adoptions.
2. Use our online process as described at Adoptions are first-come-first-served. While we try our best to get back to everyone via our online process, sometimes it takes several days or a week or two, and the pet you are interested in may get adopted during our open adoption hours.

Please note that inquires submitted through this website about this pet may not receive an immediate response due to the large volume of inquires we receive. If you are interested in adopting this pet, please submit an adoption application to be considered.

Adoption requirements:
- You must be 18 years of age or older with a valid California driver’s license or other acceptable identification
- Never have had any cruelty convictions, animal control violations or broken any adoption contracts in the past
- Agree to and sign the “Statement of Adopter” on the adoption questionnaire which includes a waiver of liability
- Pay the adoption fees and applicable licensing fees. Fees include spay/neuter, vaccinations, and microchip
- All animals, including rabbits, must be spayed or neutered. If the pet you are interested in adopting is not yet spayed/neutered, a staff member will discuss next steps with you

Additional information for dog adopters:
- Other canines in the home must meet the new dog prior to adoption.
- Provide proof of home ownership or permission to have a dog from your landlord. We cannot hold the dog that you want to adopt while you try to meet this requirement.
- Agree to a home inspection if the dog is a large breed dog or dog that has been identified to need additional attention.

We do not place adoption holds on any animals.

More about this shelter

As the city of Oakland’s sole open-admissions animal shelter, Oakland Animal Services’ duties are as diverse as the community we serve. Operating on the leanest of budgets, Oakland Animal Services (OAS) operates the city’s animal control unit, enforcing animal welfare and public safety laws, provides care for stray and surrendered animals, supports lost pet searches and reunions, and facilitates the placement of homeless animals via public adoptions and coordination with transfer partners near and far. The needs of the community are great, but so are the results of a job well done: the enhancement of quality of life for humans and animals alike.
