Story
Max (watch my video!) was at a distant overcrowded shelter for over a month when his time was up. He had no options left so we rescued him. All the volunteers adore him. Despite having no walks from his shelter kennel once out he is well behaved and great with other large dogs he met at the shelter and volunteers. He needs time to warm up and feel safe then cooperative loves treats and is lovable. Smart and gorgeous. Max did great during his transport car ride but once at a new place he was nervous and confused. Did take treats. Once he knows you he will be your best friend and bodyguard. Max will need an experienced guardian and a home with a yard. For now no kids. More info. to come as he relaxes and learns. 7/1/22: He is now doing great at his foster home with 2 other GSDs. With time he adjusted to new people at home. He is still leary of of strangers. Bonded to his foster mom. Loves his walks/hikes playing ball and relaxing at his foster home. 9/12/21: Sadly when his potential foster home and her 2 GSDs during their two meets her female GSD did not work out with him. The female is less tolerant of new dogs and wants to be the top dog. Max did great with her male dog and social. He loves treats snuggled being petted and enjoyed the attention. Need basic leash training. Poor Max will continue to board until we can find him an experienced foster home that will give him time to warm up and feel safe. Max is boarding until we can find him an experienced and dedicated foster home. Donations needed to help pay for his boarding. To date since 10/20/21 over $4000. 10/1/21: Our volunteers are visiting Max and taking him out for walks and play yard. Doing great and friendly with 2nd visit with female and male with yummy treats and turkey hot dogs. Max goes to male volunteer for hot dogs long walk and fine being petted. Max is a sweetie with people he knows and trust. Max would be a great hiking and home buddy.YouTube: https://youtu.be/veR-UfNMVfgMay 20, 2024, 12:44 am

Lyle was on the SASA PTS list Sat. 5/13 at 4:30 pm so we tagged him to save his life. He was a shelter staff favorite. Now we need a foster home for him ASAP as he is in emergency boarding. Lyle is a super dog and is people friendly. He loves to play then calms - and he loves his pets. He does need some basic training but he seems easy to train and he's a pleaser. He already has learned to sit and wait for treats only gently taking the treat after the release command. Lyle is very pretty and unique with one blue eye. Donations are appreciated to help us pay for his emergency boarding until we find him a foster home.May 20, 2024, 12:44 am

Story
Gorgeous Bear was on SASA PTS list Sat. 5/13 at 4:30 pm so we tagged him to save his life. Shelter favorite but they could not extend his time anymore due to being over-crowded with dogs. Now we need a foster home for ASAP. We will need to pay for emergency boarding for him until we can find him a foster home. He is super dog and people friendly. Sweetie. Loves attention exercise basic training and cuddly. Donations to help pay for his emergency boarding is greatly needed and appreciated. 6/2/23: Bear is doing great at this temp. foster home. He did great in car ride. Very happy loved being brushed watching for squirrels in yard and within a day he was normal calm and relaxes inside home. He's a sweetie. He is great with car rides when fh visits her mom and at dog parks. No cats. 7/25/23: Current schedule: 1/2 hour walk in the morning and the afternoon. Early evening he gets about 45 minutes at dog park to run and play. He eats his meals & sleeps great at night in his crate easily 9 hrs. He’s very food motivated & learns quickly when there are high-value treats. He enjoys being brushed. He seems fine with dremel tool nail trims. He’s tolerant of getting his teeth brushed- his back teeth are yellow but his front are white. He’s fine with checking his paws regularly for foxtails after walks. He’s very curious (not fearful at all) & likes to explore everything when he goes to a new environment. He loves squeaky toys but he destroys the squeak in them soon. He developed good impulse control with food & is much better waiting at doors/yd gates & crossing streets these days. He knows sit down wait (still working on stay for over a minute) drop it paw/shake bow lie down cover nose but his recall & heel are not good once outside of the yard. 50% of the time he will play fetch in my side yd but only for about 5x before it bores him. He’s much better at not pulling on his leash on walks but an alert person still needs to walk him as he’s highly reactive (barking jumping & pulling) when he sees squirrels or cats. If I can distract him with a high value treat before he’ll not react bad to dogs on walks. He will ignore my treats when it comes to squirrels & cats though. Not recommended for a cat household.May 20, 2024, 12:44 am

Ranger was rescued from a distant shelter when his time was running out. He is very friendly dog social smart active and has high drive potential for SAR. His foster home is training him for SAR or dog sport. Ranger is doing great with all their dogs and learning very fast. He is gorgeous. Update: Ranger is great adventure and hiking dog. He is lovable smart eager to learn and has started some K9 Detection training. Ranger would also do well in a fun dog sport or possible SAR. He needs a active guardian for long walks jogs or hikes. He is great with other dogs to hang out but doesn't play with them. He is more attentive to his person and will be your loyal BFF. Loves to play fetch non-stop. Very toy driven.May 20, 2024, 12:44 am

Story
Luna has been at Stanislaus Animal Shelter since 7/20/23. Her time was up on 9/2/23 so we rescued her to save her life. Need foster home for precious Luna. She is a shelter volunteer favorite. They all love her. Very sweet loves to cuddle affectionate and friendly with all dogs and people. Knows sit. Kind nature about her. We have back up emergency boarding for her. Huge thanks to Kristie. Setting up long distance transport. Best if we can find her a foster home. Luna seems to be an easy and very sweet family GSD. https://www.facebook.com/groups/848040928655945/permalink/6339584986168151/ Donations towards her emergency boarding is very much needed and appreciated. 9/6/23 update: She is settling in nicely good eater and very affectionate. Fearless and has to check everything out. Learning how to ask for affection gently and how to not pull so much. Super fast on learning anything and is always watching you. She is very agile and light on her feet. Pretty girl with a lot of spunk. I have seen no dog reactivity have not tested with cats yet. 4/5/24: No cats for Luna but I have not seen any dog reactivity to any dogs (large or small). No resource guarding of food or toys. You can brush her touch her feet clean her ears and clean her teeth. She is very agile and quick she does love to please. Outside she is much better with men indoors she is more guarded and wary. I believe that that 'spooky' behavior has been learned to avoid doing things that she would rather not do. If I give her a firm and fair correction she immediately becomes super friendly and behaves wonderfully. So the new home or foster would need to be strong willed enough and comfortable setting boundaries and manners for her. She is healthy good stomach (can eat anything with no problems). She loves to cuddle and is super loyalMay 20, 2024, 12:44 am

Story
Christmas family. Adorable Charity Noelle and Jingle were dumped in the back of a store. So much for the Christmas spirit of kindness. They were cold covered in dirt and nervous and the shelter took them in. We rescued them from the distant shelter. The two females are more out-going. Noelle seems to be the top puppy. Both are doing great got baths lovable playful and now very happy at their foster home. More info. to come as they grow and learn. Pups are not available til after 8 weeks old and they get their vet care. They most likely will grow up to be large adults. Best they get a home with a fenced backyard and active guardian for daily long walks and exercise. Update: Both pups are doing great at their foster home. Noelle needs a new experienced foster home due to long vacations. Learning quick. Smart and playful. Both are learning to go out to yard for potty time and learning to take turns for attention. Both are friendly and social. Been meeting many new people who visit during the Christmas break. They are curious of new sounds and sights and comfortable. Smart pups. Need experienced guardian. Her personality (sensitive) and some body structure/movement has some Great Dane mix qualities but she is not as large. She needs time to warm up to new people and then affectionate. Well behaved at home. Loves going on walks and hikes. Loves playing ball. Once she meets a dog she wants to play. Noelle is too nervous to live with young childrenMay 20, 2024, 12:44 am

Story
Arnie was found by the local SPCA and we adopted him when he was about 1.5 years old. He loves human connection, attention, and affection and always welcomes pets and belly rubs. He enjoys play growling, tugging, and chasing down toys. He is very responsive to “go to bed” and other basic commands (sit, turn around, down). He was always leash reactive towards other dogs, particularly when outdoors. Basically when he’s outside he’s on high alert and it is best to avoid close proximity with strangers and other pets, as if he’s agitated he may instinctively snap at anyone close by. Indoors he’s a very sweet and obedient dog. The ideal new home and owner would be able to give him lots of attention, have a private yard where he can run around, and not have any other dogs or small animals. Because he can pull very strongly the owner also needs to have good physical strength to stay anchored in the event that he lunges at dogs or other triggers (bikes, skateboards, scooters).

Story
Molly is a resilient mama who at about 10 years of age had a litter of 3 puppies. This sweet and loving lady has had a lifetime of experiences that has luckily turned her into an incredible companion dog. She may be 10 but we’re unsure if ANYONE has ever told HER! For an older gal she has lots of energy and is quite youthful! This Golden girl is looking for a moderately active home to settle down in. Molly is dog social with like-minded, respectful, calm dogs. This precious dog is sure to bring you and your home lots of warmth and light.

Story
Shepherd Mix Age: < 1 yr old Male, Neutered > 30 lbs Adoption Fee: $125 (includes spay/neuter, microchip, vaccinations) Roth came to the shelter as a stray with a serious issue with his pee-pee (paraphimosis). The shelter’s vet did emergency surgery, then called us to rescue him. Unfortunately, the first surgery was unsuccessful (scar tissue closure causing the inability to urinate) so our vet had to go in do another surgery. So far, it is all good, however, he may need another procedure as he gets bigger (if he gets bigger). Given his mix with Chihuahua, he main remain a medium-size dog. Otherwise, Roth is a sweet, happy-go-lucky puppy that is people and dog friendly. He walks on a leash. He will need some training on jumping on people, and a few other puppy manners. Roth needs a home with another playful dog(s), probably close to his size or larger. Potential adopters must own their home with a good size fenced-in backyard. Please note that we don’t adopt any of our dogs out to homes with children under the age of 13. For more information about Roth, contact: nobodysperfektdogs@gmail.com

Story
German Shepherd Age: < 1 yr old Female, Spayed 40 lbs Adoption Fee: Donation (includes spay/neuter, microchip, vaccinations) Cheyanne was brought to the shelter as a very young, small, emaciated puppy with two broken legs (assumably from being hit by a car). Since as a German Shepherd, she had a lot of growing to do, the only viable option was to splint the legs and hope for the best. Fast forward 5 months and her front leg healed pretty well (which is good - front legs are more critical than hind legs for mobility. Unfortunately, we weren’t as lucky with her back leg. The severity of the fractures, impeded the needed bone growth, and the leg ended up shortened. There are ongoing discussions with the vet about whether to amputate that leg. Nobody’s Perfekt Dogs will cover the cost of the amputation, if that happens. Otherwise Cheyanne is a sweet dog that needs a lot of socialization with people. Shepherds are naturally wary of strangers, so continuing her peoples skills is important. She loves all the dogs in her foster home. We don’t put shepherds in homes with cats. A home with another well socialized dog around her size would be ideal. Please note for large breed dogs, we require that potential adopters own their home, with a securely fenced-in backyard. Please note that we don’t adopt any of our dogs out to homes with children under the age of 13. For more information about Cheyanne, contact: nobodysperfektdogs@gmail.com
