My story

Say hello to Dolly, an active 55 lb. one year old beauty. Dolly is a stray from the overcrowded Merced shelter looking for a place to belong and call home. Like her namesake, Dolly has a beautiful multicolored coat that has minimal shedding.
Dolly loves attention and hangs close to her foster dad. It takes her a little time to warm up to strangers, however once trust is gained, she is playful and affectionate. Her recall off leash is excellent. She would make a great running or hiking companion. Dolly loves other dogs, playing until she drops with the resident dog in her foster home. Dolly’s house manners are excellent. She uses a dog door and knows her basic commands (come, sit, stay, etc…). She will need someone willing to work with her to advance her training, but she is willing to please and learns quickly. Dolly walks well on leash, sleeps quietly in her crate at night (although her preferred location would be on her foster parents’ bed) and rides well in the car. She has a very soft mouth and takes her treats gently. Dolly would probably do well with children, but has not been tested. She loves her toys, especially a kong and antler. She displayed no desire to interact with the cats at the shelter and does not chase the cottontail bunnies in the yard.
The adoption fee is $250. All Lucky Dog Rescue dogs are spayed/neutered, microchipped, treated to make sure they are flea free, are current on vaccines, and dewormed. A home inspection is required prior to adoption. If you would like more information, email Dolly’s foster parents, Steve and Sue, at If you decide to e-mail, please tell us a bit about the home that you would provide for her.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

Our adoption application can be completed electronically and emailed to us. The application are under the "Our Adoption Process" page of our website (1LuckyDogRescue.Org). Our goal is to set our dogs up for successful adoptions by finding adopters that are well suited for each of their personalities. A home visit is required prior to adoption. We will assist in introductions to other family members, both human and furry ones. Our adoption fee is $250.

Go meet their pets

Since our dogs do not always attend every adoption event, it is always a good idea to check with us first if there is a specific dog you are interested in meeting at the event. **OUR ADOPTION EVENTS ARE SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE BECAUSE OF THE PANDEMIC.** OUR ADOPTION EVENT CALENDAR: SECOND SATURDAY OF MONTH, 10:00 - 1:00. 4460 Tassajara Road, Dublin (Petco Unleashed) ALL OTHER SATURDAYS, 10:00 - 1:00 625 Main Street, Pleasanton (in front of Blue Agave Club)

More about this rescue

We are a group of dedicated volunteers who believe dogs never choose to be homeless, they certainly do not deserve to be euthanized. We believe in giving these victims of circumstances a voice and kindness so they can have a second chance at life.
