Story
All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, shots current (DHPP, Bordetella and Rabies where applicable), dewormed, flea and tick treated, and microchipped.  * If you are interested in a dog, please first read the biography on the dog (keep scrolling down for the bio!) and then go to our website, www.dpsrescue.com for an application. Our adoption fees vary. Each biography will specifically list the adoption fee.This dog will be at a meet and greet event on Saturday, April 6th at the Palo Alto Pet Food Express from 12-3pm, unless he/she is set up and adopted prior to the event. Those interested in meeting the dog can come out to our meet and greet event. We no longer do application approval onsite. Anyone adopting has been previously approved and set up to meet prior to the event. Adoption Fee: $700   The Muppet puppies are a litter of 3 month old Border Collie x Poodle mixes who came from Sesame Street to find forever homes of their very own! This litter is 3 females and 3 males. They were seized from an unsafe situation at only 4 weeks old and have been raised in loving foster homes ever since. These adorable, fluffy little rascals embody the very best of the Border Collie breed and can’t wait to charm the lucky families who adopt them. We expect these puppies to reach 30-40 pounds as adults so they will be medium-sized.    Elmo: Elmo is the leader of our Muppets gang and he is Mr. Personality incarnate! Elmo is the first puppy to investigate new smells and toys, and sets the daily play adventures for the group. Elmo is confident, affectionate, goofy, and oh so sweet. This special boy has a love of all things soft, so he is frequently found carrying around whichever toy has caught his eye for the day. Elmo is usually on the bottom of the puppy pile, content to snuggle under the warmth of his siblings when he is ready for a nap.     The puppies wake up with the sun and are herded outside as their puppy pen is cleaned out. They are fed breakfast around 8 AM and then spend their morning playing with their mountain of toys both inside and outside in the yard (weather permitting). Lunch is served at 1 PM followed by a puppy pile nap for a few hours after the excitement of the morning. Once they wake up from their nap, they play some more with each other, their toys, and the resident household dogs. After dinner at 6 PM, the puppies get some one-on-one snuggle and socialization time as they unwind from the day. They bundle together in their pen for bedtime and head off to dreamland!  The puppies have been very well socialized in their foster home with dogs of all ages and sizes. As Border Collie mixes, they are very smart little pups, so they would all benefit from continued socialization and training in their forever homes. They adore people and especially love when those people come bearing treats!  Elmo sleeps through the night and is house trained. This smart boy has learned sit, lay down, and almost shake! He is very food motivated, so he loves his training time! The Muppet puppies are only an option for homes who have owned a dog in the last 5 years. Kids in the home should be over the age of 7.April 12, 2024, 8:07 pm

Story
About the dog: Basil is well socialized and had consistent and extensive training using positive reinforcement and clicker training growing up. He has great house manner, super smart, potty trained, crate trained, loves agility, walk on leash nicely and can be offleashed. He enjoys hiking, city walk or just hanging out on the couch. His problems: He was resource guarding around food since day one. We were able to train it out of him(toward people) when he's around 6 months old, but he still guards against other dogs. He's very affectionate, and very friendly to strangers, but only when he initiates it, and does not like being hugged. He's super nice and sweet 95% of the time, and gets comments such as 'well behaved, friendly & sweet' all the time on the street. Although rare, when stressed, he can show aggression without warning. He does have bite history, and has bitten 3 people so far (no stitches needed).

Story
This is a courtesy posting. LEONARDO (LEO) is in foster care in Delano.  We would need to find a local foster or adopter to bring him into rescue. This boy has had a rough life so far, and it would be wonderful to find him a loving home.  Here's his bio: LEONARDO is about 2 yrs. old and 38lbs.  He was found astray with a badly broken leg.  On top of that, while at the vets they found he has a bullet embedded in him (!) and an old hip injury.  Clearly this boy has had a rough life :(  The good news:  his broken leg has healed while in foster care and the other old injuries do not seem to cause him any trouble/pain.  He has been a very sweet boy with people as well as at the vets. Let us know ASAP if you could give LEO a loving forever home. Leo is neutered, microchipped and up to date on his vaccinations.application, home visit, adoption feeApril 10, 2024, 1:10 am
