Not good with cats, Needs experienced adopter,
Story
Auggie is a nice dog, but he does not realize how big he is. When the kids are over he runs to get out the door or anywhere and knocks them down he even pushes us out the way. The little dogs bark at him sometimes he pushes them with his head again doesn’t realize how big he is and they slam against the wall. Other than that he is a good dog he just sits there or wants to play fetch, he loves the water but gets ear infections easily. Auggie is a good dog we just can’t take care of him like we can.

Story
Looking to re-home Ruby a year and half old female German shepherd. I've had some severe allergy symptoms that made it impossible to work. I went to a doctor and was diagnosed with dander allergy. I got Ruby from a casual breeder in Carmichael. No paperwork was available. Ruby is trained and knows basic commands. She is friendly and great with people and other dogs. She loves playing fetch and is a fast runner. She also enjoys swimming. She doesn't mind taking bath and de-shedding. All shots are up to date. Ruby is not neutered yet. Ideally, she needs a home with where she will be taken on 30 min to 1hr walks twice a day.

She is a capable learner and does it quickly.  Being with a very active person or family is a must for her. Someone that that likes to run, hike, swim or agility train would make Alannah a good partner. She makes great eye contact with her person and is always interested in what we’re going to do next.  Alannah enjoys snuggling with her person. She lives with 3 over dogs and enjoys playing with them. She has a playful but somewhat rough and tumble play style but has learned to tone it down a bit and takes correction well. Alannah enjoys going for car rides and rides well in the car. She is crate trained and sleeps quietly in her crate at night. Whatever you want to do Alannah is up for it. She is a great dog and will make someone very happy they brought her into their life. Cats and small critters unknown.

Story
Meet Becky! This gorgeous 3-year old pup originally came to the shelter in April with two other dogs, and recently went to foster care for a brief time. She is in need of a loving, active and patient home who will give her some structure and work with her through a few challenges.Becky is a smart and remarkable girl, brimming with potential and an unwavering desire to please. From the moment she entered the family`s home, her boundless energy and affectionate nature captivated their hearts. She knows a few commands and is potty trained.Unfortunately, sweet Becky struggles with severe separation anxiety if left alone and will do anything to get to her people as soon as they walk away from her. Crate training is highly beneficial to help with separation anxiety; however, a standard metal crate was not strong enough for Becky and she found a way out of it, so a heavy-duty crate would be the way to go. On walks, Becky walks loosely on leash but can be reactive to other dogs; however, she will correct well verbally. Becky has participated in shelter playgroups before, but due to the stress of the shelter environment, she has become reactive to dogs at the shelter as well. She also would do best in a home without cats. Though the family had to part ways with Becky, the indelible mark she left on their hearts remained. With the right adopter committed to her wellbeing, she can blossom into a loyal and affectionate companion who will reward you with endless loyalty and unconditional love.To meet me, visit the Bradshaw Animal Shelter Tuesday-Sunday, Noon - 5:00 pm, Wednesdays, Noon - 6:00 pm. All adoptions are on a first-come, first-served basis. To help expedite the meet and greet process, please make note of my Animal ID number, and those of other dogs you might be interested in meeting. Be sure to bring your ID with you, too. We are located at 3839 Bradshaw Road, Sacramento. I look forward to getting to know you!
