Story
Awhoooo! I'm Emilio! I'm a 2 year old, neutered male, 60 pound Chocolate Lab/Pit Bull mix and I'm excited to meet you! I'm a very affectionate boy but I can come on a bit strong. It's only because I'm so stoked to see you! I love giving hugs and will try to sit on you. I also love to run, sniff, jump -- and did I mention jumping?! I'm super great at it. My buddies here at PHS tell me there are times jumping is not appreciated, and I'm doing my best to learn manners. I will need extra help from my new family with ongoing training. My ideal home will be with adults who are ready to devote lots of time and energy giving me love, training and exercise. I would do best in a home where I am the only pup for now. Since I'm not always sure who I can give high fives too, I would do best in a home with adults only. I can't wait to be your forever faithful adventure buddy!

Story
Think you and Lucy might be a match made in heaven, but you want to do a trial run at home first? You can foster Lucy for one week and if things don't work out, you can always bring them back to us (but we hope that's not the case).Lucy, is not home yet but she may be swept home by you! Lucy is an energetic, go-getter sort of lady that is ready to adventure, see the world, meet new people and dogs. With her enthusiasm and zest for life - Lucy is really working on her self-care skills, taking a break, and learning to settle by herself. Afterall, we do love an independent lady! Sometimes playing too much and going too long on adventures can be just too much excitement so taking breaks and letting each person know how to take a break. Lucy is a bubbly lady with lots of love to give and smarts to match, so if you are ready for an adventure of a lifetime, please come on into the Adoption Center to learn more!

SWEET MILO – 5-Year Old Black Male Lab / Shepherd Mix 50 lbs Neutered Background: GGLRR Adopted Milo out 2 years ago to his current family and we want to find Milo a new home that has adult children only. The current owners now have a toddler in their home and Milo is nervous around the toddler. The current owner loves Milo but knows it is best. When Milo first came to GGLRR: Milo was rescued off Craigslist from the previous owner. The previous owner decided they should not have adopted a puppy. The current owner loves Milo but they work too much and want a better home for Milo. A home where he will get more exercise, which he needs. The current owners have done a lot with Milo. He has gone to training and knows: Sit, Stay, Down, Heel, Leave It, Wait, Off and Place. The owners describe him as a very sweet, friendly, and loving dog. Of course Milo is not perfect and is still a bit of a puppy and he will: jump up at times when greeting people, will dig in the ground – part of that is lack of exercise and will chew on non-dog items; again more exercise! Milo loves a good game of fetch and gets along with other dogs. The owner actually state he adores other dogs. He gets socialized on a regular basis with other dogs at the dog park and goes to doggie day care. He rides well in the car and will run along when the owner is riding his bike. Milo is an inside dog and is housetrained. What Milo’s Current Owners have to say: Milo is a five year old, fifty pound, Border collie, Lab mix. He is an incredibly loyal, well trained, loving dog. He is off leash, e-collar, crate, and potty trained. (A tap on the vibrate setting of his e-collar is all Milo needs and he responds immediately.) Milo either wants to be curled up at your feet, snuggled up with his person, or outside running free. Milo is a sensitive little guy, he loves to play fetch, visit off leash trails (the bulb, point Isabel, and the Oakland Redwoods) he is a strong swimmer, (he loves the water), and he enjoys working on his agility training. He is extremely eager to please. As you could guess by his breed he is a high energy working dog that will take you some place beautiful outside every day. He gets along great with other dogs, and is extremely friendly. Milo would thrive in a household with active adults who have dog experience and older children (late teens and beyond… he is extremely gentle with little kids but their erratic movements make him a little nervous.) He needs people that can dedicate at least an hour a day to giving him the exercise that he needs. Cats and chickens make him a little nervous but he has co-existed with them, horses terrify him. Milo is a big part of our family and a wonderful dog, the only reason we are looking for Milo’s forever home is because we had a baby who is now a toddler who wants to hug and kiss Milo all the time and that makes him nervous, so we have to keep him separated from her and it feels unfair to Milo. He has a history of resource guarding but only when his fear response has been triggered, he is an extremely gentle, kind dog that deserves to be in an environment where he can thrive. What Milo's Rescue Rep Says: We are looking for a home where Milo will get the attention and exercise, he needs.. He needs to continue his training and socialization with other dogs and be in a home that will make him part of the pack. Milo is a wonderful dog and can be in a home with adult children and other dogs; he would love another dog to play with. If you have another dog at home, it should be a younger dog that would want to play with Milo. When Milo met my two big crazy Labs he just wanted to play but respected my dogs and their energy. Milo has had some resource guarding in his current home and GGLRR ran it by a behaviorist and felt Milo can be rehome into a home with adults only or adult kids. (GGLRR will review with the possible adopters what Milo has been resource guarding and the feedback from the behaviorist.) Milo is a wonderful boy and would make a Great companion in the right home. Medical: Milo has no health issues. He is neutered, up to date on his shots, heartworm negative and is microchipped. Currently located in: East Bay If you are interested in adopting Milo, please contact Rescue Rep Liz at liz@jobshopsf.com Please email your dog experience, your plan for training and your plan for exercise. Please note our service area: GGLRR adopts to the greater San Francisco Bay Area. Our volunteers donate their personal time phones so please only call during reasonable hours (8am - 8pm). The Rescue Rep identified in the dog posting is the only person with information about the dog - please only contact the designated volunteer. We do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient. We work very hard to make the right matches for the dogs and for the new owners. We get 3-5 dogs per week; we do not have a facility where the dogs are housed, they are in foster homes throughout the Bay Area.

Story
LOGAN -- ~1.5 -Year-Old Male Chocolate Labrador 75-lbs Neutered Background: We were alerted by the shelter regarding young Logan. He was recently returned after a 3-month failed adoption; the family reported that Logan guarded his space when visitors came to the home. The shelter also reported that Logan was returned in a different state than that of when he was adopted out a few months prior. He was friendly yet timid when adopted and came back scared and flinchy. What Logan's Foster Says:Logan is truly a big chocolate teddy bear. In the three weeks since he joined our family, Logan has blossomed into a playful and affectionate companion. Initially hesitant to leave the car, he now eagerly engages with us and our dogs, showcasing a newfound zest for life. Logan's love for touch and petting is evident and he adores playing with our two labs, learning the art of toy entertainment along the way. While he has not met a cat directly, his curious gaze through the window suggests a potential prey drive. However, there is no sign of resource guarding, be it with food, us, or our dogs. Though initially shy when meeting new people solo, Logan quickly warms up, allowing for delightful petting sessions. Interestingly, when surrounded by our dogs, his nervousness fades away in the company of strangers. Logan has proven to be a champ during grooming sessions, happily enduring baths, nail trims, and ear cleanings. His leash manners are better when alone, occasionally pulling when accompanied by our dogs. Logan's car etiquette, on the other hand, is impeccable—settling in for the ride without a fuss. While still working on housebreaking, Logan is communicative about his needs, making progress in understanding when it's time to go outside. A willing crate dweller, Logan prefers an open door, expressing himself with a bark if confined. When night falls, he transforms into a peaceful sleeper, resting soundly on a dog bed beside ours. Logan is more than a pet; he's a bundle of love and potential waiting for a family to continue his journey of transformation. Adopt Logan and let the adventure of a lifetime begin. What Logan's Rescue Rep Says: Initially meeting Logan at the shelter, we found a very timid and skittish young dog. His tail was tucked the majority of the time we visited, but did prop up after about 30 minutes. He did well with other dogs he was introduced to at the shelter, along with meeting my dogs and living with the foster's dogs. Logan will require slow and steady introductions to new people and will benefit from having another friendly canine sibiling or siblings in his forever home that will be a good role model and help with his socialization. Not a good fit for a family with children due to his skittishness. No idea how Logan would be with cats. He had a meet and greet with a potential adopter who had experience with a skittish dog and also had other dogs in the home. While Logan warmed up to the humans (with treats), he wanted to play and did really well with the other two dogs. Unfortunately, the third dog was not a fan of Logan's. Medical: Logan appears to be in good health, is neutered, current on vaccinations, heartworm negative, and microchipped. Currently located in: St. Helena If you are interested in adopting Logan, please contact Rescue Rep Kris at krisellen.nm@gmail.com Please tell me a little bit about yourself and why you might be a good fit for Logan. Please note our service area: GGLRR adopts to the greater San Francisco Bay Area. Our volunteers donate their personal time phones so please only call during reasonable hours (8am - 8pm). The Rescue Rep identified in the dog posting is the only person with information about the dog - please only contact the designated volunteer.

Story
Barney -- ~1-year-old male black Lab mix 70-lbs Neutered Background: This youngster was found as a stray in Oakland... and was very scared and shutdown at the shelter. The shelter was unable to handle him or examine him due to his skittishness. With the help of tasty pieces of a freshly-roasted chicken from Nob Hill Foods and some patience, we were able to gain his acceptance and get him out of the shelter into a vehicle for transport to a foster home. He is currently thriving beyond our wildest expectations. What Barney's Foster Says: What a delightful young pup. Barney has come such a long way since his "escape" from the shelter. Initially, he was a recluse in his x-pen in my dining room, avoiding all contact. Now, he is engaging, friendly, and playful. Gets along great with his 4-legged roomies, Theo and Diesel. Barney sleeps through the night on his dog bed in my bedroom. We're going on leash walks in the neighborhood and he loves walking with the other dogs. When I am working out in the yard, Barney is happy to lie down and supervise. Rides great in the car -- quick to jump in to see where we are going. Barney takes meeting new people slow and cautious -- a few treats goes a long way to winning Barney over. Not a big barker. House-trained. He is still learning about the big world around him. Loves meeting other dogs -- and romping with them! He is quite curious about my chickens -- not in a good way. What Barney's Rescue Rep Says: We think Barney is a Weimaraner/pointer/Lab/shepherd/hound mix. Will need lots of slow, steady, and calm handling. Can be a bit standoffish at first when he initially meets people, but soon learns they are not a threat. Not a good fit for a family with children due to his skittishness with humans. Would be great for him to join a family with an existing dog that can show Barney the ropes. Probably not a good apartment dog. Hoping to find Barney a home where his peeps area around a lot. No idea how Barney would be with cats. Medical: In great health. Current on vaccinations and microchipped. Neutered. Heartworm negative. Located In: Placerville (but we are happy to arrange a rendezvous closer to SF Bay area for a meet-up). If you are interested in adopting Barney, please contact Rescue Rep Dave at david.c.ely@sbcglobal.net. Please note our service area: GGLRR adopts to the greater San Francisco Bay Area.

Story
Dominic -- 10+-year-old black male Lab mix 70-lbs Neutered Background: Dominic's owner recently died, and his caretaker has asked us to find him a fabulous new home. Dominic has lived as an outside dog for the past few months... (but he is now really enjoying life indoors)... What Dominic's Former Caretaker Says: My friend passed away in March and I have been trying to find a home for his dog since then. I believe he is a 12-years-old. I think Dominic has lost some weight since he's been with me; his prior owner had fed him way too much people food. Dominic loves to go on walks. Not sure if he is housebroken. He loves to play with other dogs. He doesn't show any possessiveness over food or toys, but he really hates to give up his toy...no growling, just a stubborn old man. We play ball with Dominic in our backyard and he loves to play with and chase my grandson. Likes to chase cats, but does not harrn them. What Dominic's Evaluator Says: Dominic is probably 10-12 years old. Dominic is very engaging and friendly. Loves being touched and petted. Let me touch and poke/prod him all over. No food guarding -- for both dry kibble (which he wasn't really interested in) and wet canned dog food (which he gobbled right down). Not interested in squeaky toy. Pulls on leash (with flat collar). Did fine with my dog Diesel. Videos from caretaker showed Dominic hanging out just fine with little dogs. Dominic is definitely a mix... I see Lab and possible Rottie -- I think Dominic is a mix of multiple breeds... A little bit of a drooler. What Dominic's Foster Says: What a nice, affectionate dog. If you have a lap, he wants to climb up into it. Rides great in the car. Loves going on walks, but kinda meanders all over the place. Sleeps through the night with nary a peep. Not interested in squeaky toys. A bit of a picky eater, I've had to dress up his dry kibble with some wet food which he gobbles down. He is house broken but not crate trained. He sleeps on a coach (covered by a blanket). Dominic is good left alone and doesn’t chew things up, but I pick up the recycling bag at night if there is a used dog food can in it. He alert barks; Dominic is quiet in the house except when the doorbell rings... but he doesn’t keep barking and stops when told to. He doesn’t have separation anxiety. He is great with people and kids but suggest supervision around toddlers because he is a big guy and could accidentally knock them over. He is okay with most other dogs but gets excited so supervised meet and greets are best. He is a lover. Dominic loves to be cuddled first thing in the am. He Is good on a head leash and a 30-min walk is best. He sleeps a lot, loves the car and loves to be with people. When he needs to go out, he paces by the door and looks at you. He doesn’t bark though so you need to let him about after 3-4 hours in case you missed his signal. When I am gone, he self-limits the water drinking so no accidents. He is used to going about 10-11 hours overnight. He is a lovely guy. What Dominic's Rover.com Dogwalker Says: This boy deserves a good home. Anyone would be lucky to have him. Dominic is a lovable pup that is all about genuine affection. He's such sweetheart, always eager to be close and show his love with cuddles and occasional kisses. What makes Dominic stand out is his easy-going nature. He just wants to love and be loved. On walks, he's generally well-behaved, but his excitement can occasionally get the best of him when he spots other dogs or humans. He might give a gentle tug, but we've been working with him and he's quick to correct, eager to continue the stroll with a wagging tail or say hello when given the “okay”. He shows no aggression, just excitement at the possibility of a new friend. Despite his tough looking exterior, Dominic is a softie at heart. He is always eager to please and be a loyal companion and shows no resistance to any kind of training given to him. Dom is proof that you CAN teach an old dog new tricks! Dom would be the perfect addition to a person or family looking for a loyal, gentle, and affectionate companion. What Dominic' Rescue Rep Says: Dominic appears to have lived a hard life. Deserving of a nice relaxing new home. Dominic would do fine in a home with other dogs but he may appreciate being an only dog so his people can focus solely on him. Probably not house-broken so that will take some work. Time for this guy to learn what living inside a home with his people is all about. Great dog for older folks that just want a wonderful dog hanging around. Medical: Dominic is current on Rabies and distemper vaccinations, and heartworm negative. In Mid-September he was microchipped, neutered, and had a benign mass on his lower abdomen removed. Teeth are quite worn down but we did not see any broken, cracked or rotten teeth (maybe from chewing on rocks). Appears to have some fur loss on his hind quarters and tail -- likely due to fleas and has been growing back. Located In: Petaluma. If you are interested in adopting Dominic, contact Rescue Rep Dave at david.c.ely@sbcglobal.net. Please note our service area: GGLRR adopts to the greater San Francisco Bay Area. Our volunteers donate their personal time phones so please only call during reasonable hours (8am - 8pm).
