Story
Kristmas was fearful and very nervous at the shelter when we rescued her. She is a special behavior needy dog. Kristmas needs time to warm up and feel safe. She can be handled and picked up. She was neglected with matts and had very long toe nails. She was probably too isolated prior and then left in the streets. Kristmas was fine meeting another dog on leash. She was nervous at our vet but they were able to care for her and clip her long nails. She is now in a quiet foster home and relaxing. At first she stayed in her crate inside dog pen and just watched. The next day she felt safer and ate a little. Finally came out and walked out to yard for potty biz. Sniffing and hanging out with the foster home's gentle friendly small dog. Kristmas needs time to decompress and feel safe. Will need an experienced guardian and quiet home situation with attached back yard. More info. to come. She will only eat home made cooked food. Foster home makes chicken or turkey with rice and veggies. She won't eat store bought kibble nor can. Update on day 2: At foster home she is very slowly warming up. She follows their 2 dogs around and out to yard. She needs a very experienced home with another dog to feel safe. Best no kids or older kids 10 yrs and up. She will flinch at fast movement and is head shy. She needs more time in her foster home to learn and be less fearful. She slowly will jump on the sofa and go to foster mom to sniff hands. Kristmas is eating very little now and likes Weruva canned food. She is still too nervous to eat a full meal. So maybe in another 2 weeks she will be normal but shy behavior. She was probably too isolated since a puppy so new people and places make her very nervous. Need to move slow and let her set her pace to trust and feel safe. She will not walk on leash but can be guided on leash at home with another dog around. Will take time for her adjust. She is not a dog for social outings or parks. March 2024: She is now walking on leash with a harness. Follows people and foster home's dog on walks. She was a very picky eater but foster home makes home-made meals of meat/veggies/rice for her and their dog. She now loves her food!May 23, 2024, 1:19 pm

Story
Yuki was rescued from an over-crowded shelter. She was dumped out of a car at a park and then spent much time at the shelter. Had ear infections that were treated by shelter vet. She has been cooped up with pent up energy. She is active and needs exercise and training. She is having fun running and doing zoomies in her foster home's backyard. Already learned to use their doggie door. Now a happy little girl. Dog and people friendly. Tested fine with dogs at the shelter but they didn't do the dog guarding test. More info to come as she learns and gets healthy at her foster home. She will get her 2nd vet appt and grooming soon. Update. Urgent. Day two. She needs a new experienced and adult foster home with no other dog at home. Yuki is a dominant female to other dogs and wants to be the top and only dog in household. She attacked the foster home’s Maltese male dog a few times today. Even when he was sleeping she jumped him. Keeping separate with dog pen. She needs an experienced adult home only with no other dog at home that can train and guide her. Not over coddle for bad behavior. She has to learn to listen to person and not guard person to another dog. Fine with adults and sweet. Not safe around kids since she did react after a dog fight. Learned doggie door right away. House trained. Fast walker and need exercise. Can meet new dogs on walks to sniff but then she ignores. She was under socialized as a pup. She is cute but has strong alpha personality to other dogs. Update 5/19/24: Yuki has learned and now doing much better with current foster home's dog. They can co-exist. She is very sweet and playful with adults. Will need adult home. Sleeps in bedroom. Maybe older kids 14 yrs and up with experience.May 23, 2024, 1:19 pm

Story
All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, shots current (DHPP, Bordetella and Rabies where applicable), dewormed, flea and tick treated, and microchipped.  * If you are interested in a dog, please first read the biography on the dog (keep scrolling down for the bio!) and then go to our website, www.dpsrescue.com for an application. Our adoption fees vary. Each biography will specifically list the adoption fee.Adoption Fee: $650 Violin is a 1 year old Maltese x Poodle mix who is ready to start up a concert with his forever home! Violin went solo after his former home was moving and decided they didn’t have room for him in the band anymore. Well, we couldn’t let a guy as handsome as Violin hang out in a dark shelter, this boy is meant for the stage! Violin gave his rescuer little kisses from the second we got a collar on him and his life has only been on an upramp since! We can’t wait for him to find his conductor and start living his absolute best life. Violin weighs 16 pounds.     Violin is the kind of dog who will blossom as he gets to know you, and you will get the joy of seeing that love bloom! After a few days, Violin started showing us his curious and loving sides that we have been delighted by. While we don’t know his backstory, we know that he deserves only the best from here. Violin loves to dance, prance, and wiggle his body whether or not there is music playing. He just wants to dance like nobody's watching! Violin is a total velcro dog who is looking for his new human best friend, so if you are looking for a forever pal, he is your dude. If you go out and come home, prepare for the happiest zoomies in the world! Violin is a perfect mix of active and lazy. He loves a good romp outside when he is in the mood but when he is done, he can plop down and nap with the best of them. Violin can even be a yoga buddy as he does the best downward dog stretches whenever he wakes up from a nap. Truly what more could you ask for!  Violin wakes up at 7 AM and goes right outside for a potty break. He can hold his bladder for 8-9 hours at night and adjusts into a routine in about a week. After he goes potty he comes right inside for breakfast During the day, Violin loves to lounge around the house as you work. He would be an amazing WFH companion as he just wants to chill out and be with you. Violin loves pets and will snuggle close to you when he decides it is time for attention. He loves investigating and romping around the backyard during the day, checking out all the sights and smells the grass has to offer. He is still getting used to the leash but we know he will be walking like a champ in no time. Violin gets his dinner at 5 PM and then he spends his evening cuddled up as he sniffs out some toys. He goes out for one last potty break around 10 PM and then he heads into his crate where he happily sleeps through the night.  Violin lives with another dog and they coexist happily. He would do well as a companion dog as long as there is a polite introduction. Violin will need both obedience and socialization training to ensure he continues growing into a confident adult pup. We know this boy will be such a fabulous companion for his new people, he just needs the chance to shine. Violin would thrive in a home where he can slowly get adjusted to his new life. If you give him the chance to show you how awesome he is, you will earn the love of an amazing dog. This string player will be super in your forever home!   Violin is only an option for homes who have prior dog experience, especially those experienced with shy dogs. Kids in the home should be over the age of 12. May 23, 2024, 9:53 pm

Story
Hi, I'm Ro! I'm a 3 year old, 22lbs., neutered male Maltese mix. I'm a clam and gentle fellow that is a bit set in my ways. I prefer the company of humans over other dogs so I would love to be the only dog in the household. I'm a friendly fellow that will come right up and say hello when I'm comfortable. I enjoy going on leisurely walks on quiet suburban streets and like playing with balls when the mood strikes. I have a great haircut right now but I have hair that will continue to grow and will need regular maintenance and grooming. Unless otherwise indicated, adoptable animals are located at our Lantos Center for Compassion at 1450 Rollins Road, Burlingame, CA 94010.

Story
Cody and Molly are a sweet bonded pair who came to us after their mom passed away. They are kind, considerate and gentle little lambs. Cody is 28 lbs (needs to lose some weight!) and Molly is 13 lbs. Cody is 17 years young and Molly is 18 years young. They've been indoor dogs for a long time with little to no outdoor time and they're happy to enjoy the great outdoors, especially when it's sunny! These two really are the sweetest pair of buddies they look forward to spending forever and ever together. Cody came to us with bladder stones, had surgery and is now on a special diet to help prevent this from occurring again. Molly and Cody are a very sweet pair who don't ask for much, just a loving, warm and cozy home where they get to enjoy indoor and outdoor sunshine time together.

Story
Mr. Little Potato Head! What a great name. To our best knowledge, probably a maltese poodle mix, he's approximately 3 years old and weights about 14 pounds. He is great with people and children. He walks well on a leash but does like to bark at other dogs, but will settle when you correct him. He loves to eat and is very food/treat motivated. He must have had a family before as he settled in with his foster very easily. He does well in car rides and loves his daily walks. Are you ready to incorporate him into your family!? SF Bay Area Adoptions only, please email if interested.
