Story
Welcome Cowboy to CCPAL Foster Program. Cowboy is an 6-month old pup. He has an adorable and large head. I call these man dogs because my husband loves them. He weighs about 37 pounds now but we think will be 50 full grown. He is a Lab/Staffie or Pittien or maybe Rottie is our guess. He does know the sit command and is attentive when you are directing him. He has a nice amount of attention and it is not too short but he can hold it while you work with him. He is adorable, affectionate and has the cute wrinkles on his forehead that make him look concerned. He has brown eyes and a little white patch on his chin that look like a milk beard. He is the typical puppy and is energetic, inquisitive and in need of direction. He is willing to learn and takes direction well. He already knows the sit command. He has a lower or shorter coat and not a big shedding dog. He would be great for an active outdoorsy type family. Now he will settle down and his energy is not over the top. It is a good amount of energy for an 8-month old puppy. He is getting his vaccinations and will be neutered soon and ready for his forever home. He is good in car rides, good with cats and decent on a leash. He is fine in a crate and moderately vocal and will use his voice to get attention. He would be fine with children. He is not overly mouthy. We like the children to be 8 or older. He is in Texas and can be adopted locally or we can work with one of the wonderful transporters to get him to Washington, Portland, Minnesota, Vermont or all along the East Coast. His adoption fee is 400 and transport is 200. Rhode Island and Massachusetts are not states we adopt to because of the regulations imposed by these states.

Story
Welcome Hazel to CCPAL Rescue Foster Program. Hazel is a 6-year-old Shepherd/Plott Hound or Dutch Shepherd mix. She is 6 years old and weighs about 50 pounds. This girl is good with kids. She is around a 2-year-old little girl regularly. She likes car rides and loves being in the house and relaxing. She is a lower energy dog and she has some nice training under her belt. She has been around horses and has done fine. She is also fine with cats. She has been around a Chihuahua that runs and she does not have a prey drive for the small dog. She was living on an acreage and the family moved. She now is in a very very small yard and doesn’t seem to like the new arrangement. She used to jump a 4 ft fence just to sit in the front yard. She never would run off. She just like to do her watching from the front yard. That was ok in the country but in the new City location that isn’t ideal. She is a wonderful dog and will be an easy dog to bring into your family. She is beautiful and very loving. This amazing girl is looking for her forever home. She is currently in Texas at the CCPAL Rescue. She is spayed, heartworm negative, healthy and ready for her forever home. She can be adopted locally or we can work with one of the wonderful transporters to get her to Washington, Portland (Oregon), Minnesota, Vermont or all along the East Coast. Her adoption fee is 300 and transport is 200. Rhode Island and Massachusetts are not states we adopt to because of the regulations imposed by these states.

Story
Welcome Rosie to CCPAL Foster Program. Rosie is a 1-year-old Staffordshire/Doberman mix. She is good with cats, good with children, good in a crate and good with other confident male dogs. She is very affectionate and sweet. She has a low and short coat and not much of a shedder. She likes car rides and gets up in the car on her own. She will wear clothes and as most dogs of her breed don’t like weather that is too cold or too hot. She knows sit and has the adorable wrinkly forehead that makes her look concerned. She is the ultimate man dog. My husband fell head over heals when he met her. She is very social with people and isn’t startled or standoffish with strangers. She gets along well with a big 80 pound Pittie male that she is in foster care with. The only dog she hasn’t liked is a dog at the foster home with anxieties. She would make an amazing companion dog for some lucky family. She can be with children. We like them to be 8 or older. She is active and a great cuddler. This is the best of both worlds. She can be active or cuddle up when you want to sit around as well. She is currently in Texas. She is healthy, spayed, vaccinated and ready for her forever home. She can be adopted locally in Texas or we can work with one of the wonderful transporters to get her to Washington, Portland (Oregon), Minnesota, Vermont or all along the East Coast. Her adoption fee is 300 and transport is 200. Rhode Island and Massachusetts are not states we adopt to because of the regulations imposed by these states.

Story
Welcome Hamilton to CCPAL Rescue. He is a 9-month old Schnoodle dog. He weighs about 50 pounds. He is good with other dogs. He is good on a leash and not a shedding dog. He would be great for someone wanting a low shedding dog. He may need grooming to have a beautiful coat. He was found as a stray with his leash and collar on. Every attempt was made to locate his owner. His owner could not be found. He is now at the CCPAL Rescue looking for his forever home. This is a great find in Rescue. We hardly ever have the designer breed dogs. He has sit down and is good in a car. He would be fine with children. We always like them to be 8 or older. Someone not gone all day every day would be best for a younger dog. He needs to be continually taken out and socialized so he stays a social boy. He is smart and attentive. He has lots of personality and is very affectionate. He is healthy, vaccinated and is neutered and ready for his forever home. He is currently in Texas. We can adopt out locally or we can work with one of the wonderful transporters to get him to Washington, Portland (Oregon), Minnesota, Vermont or all along the East Coast. His adoption fee is 400 and transport is 200. This dog would be 1000s of dollars from a breeder. We always say adopt don’t shop!! Here it is!! Please be patient if you apply for this dog. He will generate lots of interest, texts, emails, calls etc. We are a small group of dedicated volunteers. We will work to place him in the best fitting home and it isn’t an instant process. It will take a few days up to a week to go through applications. Thanks so much for understanding. Rhode Island and Massachusetts are not states we adopt to because of the regulations imposed by these states. Contact Marlene at 210-867-1769 or email ccpalinquiries@gmail.com if you have questions.

Story
Welcome Zeus to CCPAL Foster Program. Zeus is a 18-month old 70 pound Plot Hound/Medium Terrier blend dog. He was abandonded by his owners when they moved and left him at the house they moved from. He was tied up to the porch. Good Samaritans spotted him and were feeding him and giving him water until they realized the owners weren’t coming back. Zeus is now in foster home waiting for his new forever home. He is great on a leash and not leash reactive. He is good in a crate and he likes car rides. He is attentive, smart and potty trained. He is overall a wonderful dog and is not food aggressive or reactive with his bowl. He would make a wonderful outdoor enthusiast a great companion. He would make a perfect man dog. He looks tough but he is not at all how he looks. He would make a great family dog if the man works out of the house. His looks would make the family feel secure even if he loves everyone. He is a lower shedding dog with a nice soft coat. He is healthy, vaccinated and neutered. He is currently in Texas and can be adopted locally in Texas. We can work with one of the wonderful transporters to get him to Washington, Portland (Oregon), Minnesota, Vermont or all along the East Coast. His adoption fee is 400 and transport is 200. Rhode Island and Massachusetts are not states we adopt to because of the regulations imposed by these states. Contact Marlene at 210-867-1769 or email ccpalinquiries@gmail.com if you have questions.

Story
Welcome Blue to CCPAL Rescue. He is a 2-year-old Australian Shepherd/Australian Cattle Dog mix. He has a nice fluffy coat and is lower on the shedding scale. He has a longer coat and weighs about 50 pounds. He is friendly with other dogs and has regular play time with a very dominant male dog and another smaller timid dog. He does great with other dogs. He is good on leash and very happy. He is good in his kennel and comes when you call. He does his business outside. We cannot say enough good about this dog. A family wanting an active companion to join them on hikes, walks, jogs or any outdoor adventure would be great. He is active but not in perpetual motion. He loves strangers too so you could take him to any local coffee shop and know he would be fine with lots of people. He would be fine with a moderately active family. His teeth look good and he will not require a dental appointment any time soon. He is vaccinated, neutered and ready for his forever home. He would be good as an only dog or with another dog. He would be fine with children. We like them to be 8 or older. He is currently in Texas at the CCPAL Rescue. He can be adopted locally or we can work with one of the wonderful adopters to get him to Washington, Portland (Oregon), Minnesota, Vermont or all along the East Coast. His adoption fee is 300 and transport is 200. He will make some lucky family a great companion.
