Story
Hello my name is Freddy! I came to the SPCA because my owner could no longer care for me. Are you looking for a running companion? Look no further-I'm your dog! I am a playful dog who loves to go on walks and play on the beach! Maybe we can go on long walks on the beach together? I am just a kid myself and like to be the center of attention so I would prefer to go to a home without children under 12. I am currently available by appointment. Please call (831) 264-5422 to learn more about me. Primary Color: Black Secondary Color: White Weight: 59.4 Age: 1yrs 0mths 1wks

Hi I'm Winter! I'm a sweet, playful husky that is looking for my furrever home. I am looking for a quiet home where I can relax in a sunbeam and be your faithful companion. 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. It's not my fault my owners could no longer keep me. I'm a good dog. I am a little shy and would prefer a home without young children under 12. I am currently in a different area of the shelter, please ask customer care to meet me!
