Story
Carmelo came from the SPCA, she is a true puppy and needs a lot of training.  She likes to play but don't understand that she isn't to play with her mouth.  She will be good with kids over 10 yrs. of age because she is very mouthy.  She also loves to chase so I don't think cats are in her ball part at this time.  She is house trained.  She gets along with other dogs.  She is not leash trained at this time, but we are working on this.  She is what you call a true hyper pup.  With some guides she will be a great little girl.  If you would like to meet her, please email us at pawsforjuliarescue@gmail.com Her adoption fee includes her being all vetted, this includes spayed, rabies, microchipped, dewormed and flea and tick treatment... ##1802938##

Story
Scratch is a 2 yr old funny boy.  It takes him some time to warm up but once he does he is super funny and out going.  He is still working on house training and leash walking.  Screatch loves to be with his people.  He does get along with other dogs also so cats.  He is very motavated with his treats.  We think he would be best with older kids seeing he can get scared.   Scratch adoption fee comes with him being Neutered, rabies, microchip, up to date on vaccines, dewormer, and flea treatment. ##1802151##

Chihuahua Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)

Female, Senior
Livermore, CA
Size
(when grown) Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
Details
Not good with kids, Good with dogs, Good with cats, Needs experienced adopter, Spayed or Neutered,
Story
Corky is a feisty ten years young lady who enjoys sitting on the couch watching TV or in your home office while you are working. She walks well on a leash and looks forward to her daily morning walks and is very polite when meeting other dogs. Corky naps most of the day and after dinner she loves to play & run around. When it’s time for bed, she has her own dog bed but she would prefer to sleep in bed with you if allowed. Corky gets along with other dogs, cats & chickens, but she can become jealous when her person is giving them love & attention. While Corky loves her toys, she is too protective and does best without them. She knows how to do tricks for treats and has the cutest little dance! Corky needs an owner who will respect her space when she wants it and who will be assertive when she needs to be told “No”. Likely due to some past trauma, she can be a bit growly and she tends to handle life on her terms. Due to her sensitivities, she will need to be in a home where there are no children living or visiting. It may take time for Corky to feel secure in her new home but once she has decided you are her “person” and trust has been built, it will be golden. Corky is an independent doggy who has lots of love to give and she looks forward to meeting her new family.

Story
Simba is a fun boy to have around! While he's very active and loves to go for walks, he eventually settles down. He loves to be pet first thing in the morning. Actually, he likes to be pet all the time and to be right there on your lap! He's the ultimate snuggle bug! Simba is about 5 years young and is about 10 lbs. Simba is good with other dogs (though will warn others to not invade his personal space). He is house trained and knows how to use the doggie dog. He sleeps through the night with no problem. Simba is independent and decides between the living room, in his foster momma's bed or with sister Coco for his sleep each night. He enjoys playing with his toys.

Story
**Meet Bella this Saturday, February 10th from 10 to 1:00 at Dublin Petsmart West, 6960 Amador Plaza Rd.** Bella is an adorable, black, female chihuahua. She is about 3-years-old and she weighs 7 lbs. Bella is the perfect mix of cuddliness and energy. She takes a little while to warm up to people but once she does, she is great entertainment. She is happy playing fetch or wrestling with her stuffed bear. Bella is very smart and highly food motivated. Bella has learned sit, stay, and down. She is house broken and crate trained. Bella wakes up about 6:30 am, goes out, and has breakfast at 7:00 am. She likes a short walk; we try to get is one or two short walks a day. After a short bout of energy playing by herself, she is ready to cuddle on her person's lap or take a nap on her bed. After a hard day of playing and napping, Bella has dinner around 7:00 pm. She is the perfect size dog. Not too small but easy to scoop up when necessary. Bella is great company and will keep you smiling. Bella walks on a leash and she's eager to meet other small, respectful dogs. She is spayed, microchipped and vaccinated. ## See video of Bella at the end of the photo gallery! ## If you're interested in Bella please submit an application by clicking the "Apply For Adoption box " located below her photos on the right side.

Story
Lovely is a sweet loving pup I was able to rescue. About 2 yrs ago she was attacked on the same day she was giving birth to her puppies and they were tragically killed. She was much smaller than the dog that attacked her and very close to losing her life as well. My heart was broken by what happened. I brought her home to care and look after. I didn't and still don't have the money to take her to be seen by a professional. Her neck was cut open from being bit and although her wounds have healed she has issues breathing when she runs around, gets scared, or excited. I've taken her to the vet to get her shots which she has but they're asking for too much just to try and see what is causing that problem. She is a calm dog, likes to play, and loves attention. She is a good listener, good around kids and still a very happy pup despite what happened to her. She deserves an owner that will give her the love and care I am unable to. She is about 6-7 yrs old and potty trained.
