Story
Seneca is a great dog, but needs a new home with an owner who can spend more time with her. She is good with kids, but she is not able to play with very small dogs because she gets too hyper. She does well with dogs that are bigger than 10 lbs. She is up to date on shots and is microchipped. I will be moving and downsizing, so she needs a place to be able to take out her energy.

Story
Clint was a stray dog, likely abandoned. Someone posted about him in an FB group so I decided to help. I went to the location described in the post and Clint was still there even after a few hours from reading the post. Who knows how long he was there for? He seemed to be waiting. Likely waiting for the person who abandoned him to come back. The cross streets were Clinton and Rolinda, hence the temporary name Clint. When I approached Clint, he wagged his tail and put his belly up. I put a leash on him and he did not refuse, and we walked back to my car. Brought him to the vet and no microchip. Filed a lost dog report, posted him on PawBoost, FB, Nextdoor, but no one came forward. The Humane Society in our county refuses to take him nor would they help finding a foster. I cannot keep him as I already have other dogs and at my limit. He is friendly, affectionate, not aggressive, gentle with my 6 year old and playful with our other dogs. He is a sweet boy who deserves a loving home.

Chihuahua

Kerman, CA
Size
(when grown) Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
Details
Good with kids, Not good with cats, House-trained, Spayed or Neutered,
Story
Sammi is a sweet little girl we adopted in the hopes of having another addition to the family. She has always been nothing but loving and caring to all of us. However, she has not been able to get along with our cat. This became a problem for us because they tend to fight and try to harm each other and is the only reason I want to rehome Sammi. I promise that anybody who adopts Sammi will be constantly loved by her and it really does pain me to give her away. I just want to be sure she will be in an environment that she will enjoy being in with no stress.
