Story
Guess what? I would love to go home with you! I am looking for a quiet home where I can relax in a sunbeam and be your faithful companion. I might be little but I have a lot of personality. I hope you can spend some time getting to know me today. I might seem a little shy right now but when you spend some time with me you'll learn what a wonderful and loving companion I am. I would love to snuggle with you and give you lots of kisses. To know me is to love me. I am currently available by appointment. Please call (831) 264-5422 to learn more about me.

Story
Looks like: Border Collie Mix Female, 10 years old (estimated), 46 pounds Sweet Sasha has had a difficult past, but it's been a true joy watching her slowly but surely come out of her shell and recover. This gentle and shy girl takes some time to warm up, but with some calm reassurance, you'll see her begin to open up. This little lady is looking for a forever home where she can spend her years surrounded by love and support. Sasha would do best in a quiet home, which likely means that young children will not be a good fit. She does well with other calm dogs she meets while out and about and may thrive while living with such a 'furiend'. We have not yet seen Sasha interact with kitties. Sasha is on the road to recovery from surgeries to remove mammary masses and growing back fur that she lost during her time as a stray, and we're eager to share with you the tools for her continued success. As she has started feeling better, she is becoming more vocal and has started nipping at strangers when they approach her, so she is looking for a home where she can continue working on meeting new people. She is working with our trainer, but as she builds her new skills, she will need a home that can keep her and the others around her safe. This persevering pup was found as a stray in Modesto and came to us from Stanislaus Animal Services so we could get her the medical care she needed.

Story
Introducing Zaida! This sweet border collie mix came to AFRP after she was found along the side of a road where a good samaritan stopped to help her. Now, she's thriving in foster care and ready to find her forever home! Zaida is an active girl, treat-motivated and loving as can be. She's on the hunt for a home with experienced adopters who have previously owned herding breeds and understand the extensive physical and mental stimulation required to make these pups thrive! Zaida would prefer to find a home as the only pup but does well with other dogs - she loves being the center of attention! She's not an apartment pup and will require a fenced-in yard to ensure she's able to have some space to get all of that energy out! Zaida will need an adult only family, or adopters with children over the age of 8 to continue her positive training and socialization. While in our care, Zaida has been diagnosed with idiopathic head tremor syndrome (IHTS), a benign condition characterized by focal head tremors of unknown cause. While this condition is not fully understood, Zaida's continuous head and body tremors are managed as part of her unique journey. Tremors do resolve over time, but some, such as Zaida, have continuous head and body tremors. Alongside this, Zaida is currently taking long-term medication to help alleviate symptoms of anxiety, as well as OCD. Meet and greets can be arranged once your online application has been received and approved. Visit www.animalfriendsrescue.org for our required online dog application.

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 feeFebruary 29, 2024, 5:33 pm

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.Adoption Fee: $700   The Muppet puppies are a litter of 9 week 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.    Big Bird: Big Bird is Little Mr Snuggler who loves curling up in a warm nest of blankets and snoozing the day away! Of course, like any puppy, he loves getting his zoomies on and happily chases his siblings around the house, but he is the first to say “all done” and head inside for a long nap. Big Bird is less outgoing than some of his siblings, preferring to quietly meet new people and catch their vibe before he goes all in on love. But if those new people have cookies? He’s all in from the first second!  Cookie Monster: Cookie Monster, true to her name, is a smart cookie with a sweet tooth! Cookie Monster was the first of her littermates to start figuring out basic training commands and will head to her forever home with a fabulous base of skills. Cookie Monster has lovely soft fur that is a joy to pat, and she loves wriggling right into the laps of her people for affection. Cookie Monster loves tossing her toys around the house before scampering after them, and it is hilarious to watch her little legs zoom down the hallway before she crashes into her siblings.  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.   Oscar the Grouch: Oscar is a rough and tumble little boy who is anything but a grouch! He loves to chase his sister around the house and run around after her toys. He loves his snacks and eagerly awaits mealtime. Oscar adores his snuggles and is more than happy to curl up in a warm lap for hours at a time when he needs a break from playing. When Oscar is ready to play again, he wants to lead the activity and adventure, charging headfirst into whichever new activity he discovers.  Oscar’s soft coat is a joy to pet! Snuffleupagus: Snuffleupagus is a stunning and lovable gal who can’t wait to meet her new family! Snuffy is a total lovebug who is the perfect mix of playful and cuddly. She is happy to sit in her foster family’s lap for hours as she naps but then is up and go, ready to race around and chase her siblings around the house. This loving girl is very food motivated and curious, so she will be a total joy to bring into any home. Zoe: Zoe is the sweetest and calmest puppy of the bunch, capturing the affection of all who meet her with her puppy dog eyes and cuddly body. Zoe is more of the “sit back and watch before jumping in” kind of dog, and you can see her brain work to figure out the best way to win the toys or cuddles she seeks! She loves to cuddle and will snooze hours away in the laps of her people as they work. Zoe is very smart and food motivated, so she has been working on the start of some tricks which she can’t wait to show off for her new home. Zoe is such a sweet gal who is just a total darling!    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!  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.March 3, 2024, 4:35 pm
