Story
Dusty loves people and is spunky and sweet. He enjoys being at home hanging out in his crate and is also active (i.e. daily walks, hiking). He does well with most dogs except bigger dogs. I rescued him from Grateful Dogs Rescue in 2020 when he was 3 years old (he is now 7 years old). Dusty would love a home with a single adult or couple with no children. He is house & crate trained and loves cuddling with you on the couch or bed. He is also really treat/food driven. This is a really hard decision for me as I do not want to re-home Dusty, but we are having a big life change and expecting a baby this fall. If you live nearby, I would love to maintain contact with him and/or help watch him when you are going on trips.

Meet Maddy! She's one adorable JRT mix around a year old . This beautiful girl wins over every single person who meets her, she is kind, gentle and a loving soul. Maddy loves other dogs and people so much. She’s crate trained and does well in the house. Maddy was diagnosed with a birth defect of her heart called pulmonic stenosis and sadly is a poor candidate for surgery. She is on heart medications for the rest of her life and the cardiologist said she could live between 1-5 years. We are looking for a forever foster (or open to adopter) for this beautiful girl … She can live a pretty normal life for whatever time she has here. We will cover costs of her medications and any other costs. We provide food, crate and all supplies.

Thank you for your inquiry. Trigger has an adopter but we have to wait for them to go pick him up after the stay at home is lifted. Once he is picked up we will remove his profile. Please do not write to us for an application. Sorry for any inconvenience. Trigger is only 11 inches tall and 19 pounds. He has all the wonderful traits you expect in a Jack Russell Terrier. He is very affectionate. He is about 7 years old and a snuggle bug that lost his previous person to illness and is looking for his own person to worship. He loves to lie out in the sun and go in the garage to look for mice. He plays okay with other dogs of all sizes. He would love to be an only dog if his person was around a lot but he wouldn’t like being left alone for 8 hours a day without canine company. He is untested with cats. Trigger is ok with children over 7 years old. He loves giving and getting lots of attention. Adores treats, walks, car rides and cuddles. He is an active kind of guy, always looking for adventures in everyday life. He is a real character and is full of love for his people. He sleeps in his bed all night long though he really would prefer yours so he can cuddle with you. He is a very quiet and smart dog who understands what you are saying to him. Trigger really is a sweetie pie that needs a forever home with someone who will love him forever. Trigger is being fostered in San Francisco. His adoption fee is $275.00. Please contact us for more info or an application to adopt at dogzonerescue@yahoo.com Arrangements to meet our dogs occur after an application has been received.

Story
Bugsy is a great buddy to have around. He is about 18 lbs and around 6- 7 years old. He enjoys going on walks and loves to wander around in the yard in his wheels or scooting along, play with his toys, happy all snuggled up with his people, and just hanging around. Bugsy loves the toys at his foster home and doesn’t mind sharing them. He is the sweetest and most loving guy you will ever meet. He has been around all sizes and breeds of dogs and gets along great with them He enjoys the company of other dogs but he would be just as happy to be an only dog if his person was around most of the time to keep him company. If not then he needs a canine companion for company. Bugsy is very affectionate but doesn’t require a ton of attention to be content.  He is pretty low-maintenance and will happily follow your lead. Bugsy doesn’t use his back legs but do not be fooled since he is still an active guy and can go many places with his wheels or rear harness. He is very good around young kids and lives with one now. Bugsy is exceptionally loving and eager to please. He knows what he is being told and if you are looking for a smarty to be part of your family he is the guy. He will bring lots of warmth and terrier-silliness to your home. Give him a chance and he will steal your heart. Bugsy also needs a new foster home if not adopted. He is now being fostered in Belmont, CA and his adoption fee is $275. Arrangements to meet our dogs occur after an application has been received. Please contact us at dogzonerescue@yahoo.com for more information about this great guy or for an application to adopt.

Story
Introducing Alaric! Born on March 18, 2024, in the cozy confines of his foster home, Alaric has been spreading love and happiness since day one. Initially boasting a sleek black coat with flashes of dark brown, he's blossomed into a handsome pup with a striking black and tan appearance, resembling what's called a Blackjack, or a black lab mixed with a Jack Russell terrier. A lot of people think he also looks like a mini German Shepherd. We know Mom is a Scottish terrier mix, but what Alaric is will hopefully reveal itself as he grows. His unique markings add to his charm and make him stand out from the crowd. Alaric's journey is just beginning, and he's in need of a loving family to share his adventures with. Here's what you need to know: Potty training: Alaric is at the perfect age to embark on his potty training journey. He's a little shy about peeing outside, but with patience and dedication, he'll quickly grasp the fundamentals and become a potty pro in no time! Teaching commands: Like any eager student, Alaric is keen to learn and please his humans. With your guidance and positive reinforcement, he'll master basic commands such as sitting, staying, and fetching with ease. Leash training: Now that he's received all his major vaccines, Alaric has begun leash training. He's a little cautious about the outside world but once he feels safe, he loves rolling in the grass and playing with other neighborhood dogs. His adopter can continue to help him grow in his confidence. If you're ready to open your heart and home to Alaric, please apply with HDBnQ. He's waiting to shower you with love, cuddles, and puppy kisses. Don't miss out on the opportunity to make Alaric a beloved member of your family! ##2001523##

Hark! It is Brewski! Your knight in speckled, spotted and shining armor! Who knew a leggy Rat Terrier mix would show up to save you from boredom, bad choices, loneliness and unwarranted sullenness? We knew! The guy is 100% legit. He gets along with dogs, cats, kids and other humans. He is house trained and doesn't mind taking the stairs. He possesses no swords (we checked), but vast amounts of chivalry. Come meet him and get a load of his noble and polite bearing. Note: Snuggles and boops are not beneath him. Here's some notes from his foster: Brewski is super sweet and very snuggly! Will jump into your lap and snuggle with you. Does super well in car rides! Will slowly fall asleep. Very peppy and can go on endless adventures. I don't think he's 14! He acts very young for his age! Brewski will follow you everywhere in the cutest way possible! Loves to play with toys. He's potty trained! Haven't had an accident inside ever!
