My story

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

Meet Red, the adorable senior dog who is eagerly waiting for his forever home! At 9 years old, Red has a heart full of love and a playful spirit that belies his age. This sweet boy has been thriving in foster care and is ready to bring joy to a loving family. Here's everything you need to know about Red:

House Manners and Training:
Red is a well-behaved house guest with impeccable manners. He has not had any accidents indoors and is trusted to roam freely while his foster parent is at work. Although a crate hasn't been necessary, Red has shown curiosity about it, indicating he'd likely be fine if crated.

Daily Routine:
Red's day starts with an energizing morning walk. He then spends the day at home until his foster parent returns from work. Evenings are his favorite time, as he loves playing in the backyard. Red is learning recall and working on staying calm when other dogs are near the fence.

Interactions and Social Skills:
Red gets along well with other dogs and has been practicing walks with the neighbor's dog, showing great progress. Red gets excited in the car but does well when buckled in the backseat.

Previous Experience with Dogs:
Red has lived with dogs in the past and enjoyed their company. If you already have dogs at home, we recommend bringing them for a meet and greet at the shelter to ensure a good match.

Home Requirements:
Red needs a home without cats and where everyone is at least 18 years old. He can be a bit wary of strangers at first, so a household with adults who can understand his needs and help him feel safe is ideal.

Training and Personality:
This lively pup has been focusing on recall and managing his excitement, especially when running freely in the backyard. Red is affectionately nicknamed "wild man" because of his joyful, full-speed sprints in the yard, always with a big smile on his face. He loves toys and blankets, having once snuck into the spare bedroom to revel in a blanket pile he found.

Why Adopt Red?
It took some time, but Red has come out of his shell remarkably, displaying an excitement for life and a gentle, loving demeanor. His wonderful house manners and adaptable nature make him an excellent addition to the home.

If you're looking for a loving, playful, and well-mannered companion, Red is the dog for you. Come meet Red and see if he's the perfect match for your family!

More about this shelter

With an open admission policy, a No-Kill philosophy, and more than 3,100 animals crossing our threshold each year, we have still maintained a 98% placement rate over the last 3 years.

This is an amazing feat for any organization…let alone one that takes in some of the most abused, injured and seriously ill animals imaginable.
