Story
This little Cotton of ours is the softest, squishiest fluff you'll ever meet. (Don't let the lack of hair fool you.) He oh-so-recently just blew in here from the valley, so his new temporary accommodations are quite overwhelming for him at this time. (Then comes the battle of acclimating to the big city!) We are taking it slow with Cotton to show him that he can grow on his own time. He's looking for a someone who can continue building on the foundation of patience we've laid out, with a cherry on top of TLC. Are you that someone? Put Cotton in your pocket and take him on to big and better things.

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.*AT THIS TIME WE ARE NOT PROCESSING NEW APPLICATIONS FOR TRUDY. IF SHE IS NOT ADOPTED, WE WILL REREVIEW APPLICATIONS AT THAT TIME* Adoption Fee: $800   Trudy is a 5 month old Maltese x Poodle mix (Maltipoo) who trud-ly couldn’t be more perfect! This lovely gal was rescued from the local shelter and though we have no idea how she landed in the kennel, we know that her future is glimmering bright. Trudy weighs around 10 pounds and we expect her adult weight to land around 15-18 pounds. Trudy has a coat that will require regular grooming. She may be an option for those with allergies.    Below is a note from Trudy’s foster.  “Trudy is a once in a lifetime kind of dog who will make her lucky forever home’s life complete. She is affectionate, she is intelligent, she is sensitive, and she is absolutely adorable. She has a calm demeanor which wins everyone lucky enough to meet her over instantly. She is a huge cuddler and loves showing us affection and love. She is a curious girl who loves hopping around the house after us, making sure she knows what’s up! She is so smart and cracks dog puzzles with ease. Trudy adores snuggles and will happily roll over for scratches and pets, placing a gentle paw on our arms to continue the affection. Trudy has such a charismatic and captivating personality that makes everyone fall in love with her.  Trudy starts her mornings by heading to the backyard for a bathroom break. After she finishes, she comes inside for breakfast and an enrichment toy. She spends her days playing in the house and our yard, hopping around after her toy balls and following our resident dog around. She has dinner in the evening and then unwinds with cuddles. She sleeps in our living room with our resident pup and snuggles happily with a blanket to snooze the night away.  Trudy gets along fabulously with all the dogs she has met. She adores people of all ages, especially when they have treats to shower her in. Trudy loves fetch, tug of war, and soft toys. Truly, she is an all around perfect dog who deserves the best home imaginable.”   Trudy is only an option for homes who have owned a dog in the last 5 years. Kids in the home should be over the age of 6. February 20, 2024, 7:02 pm

Our adoption fees vary. Each biography will specifically list the adoption fee.Adoption Fee: $600   Maisie is a 4 year old Maltese mix who was rescued from the shelter after being surrendered due to “no longer suiting her family”. We couldn’t let such a sweet gal spend her days in a crowded pen, so we rescued her and promised her the best second chance ever. Maisie has a non-shedding coat which will require regular grooming. She is an option for those with allergies, or who want less hair around the house    Below is a note from Maisie’s foster! “Maisie is a very sweet, loving, and excitable dog who is looking for her forever person. Are you looking for a personal cuddle companion who showers you in endless love? Maisie is the gal for you! Maisie also adores toys and is often found with a tiny lamb chop toy cuddled up next to her as she snoozes. Maisie also loves a warm blanket and happily sits near us for movie marathons, bundled up with just her nose peeking out. At only ten pounds, Maisie is the perfect miniature size for both playtime and cuddles.  Maisie starts her day at 7 AM with breakfast before she goes outside to potty. She comes inside and curls up for a nap until around 9 AM. After this, she spends her day snuggled next to her person, playing with her lamb chop, or exploring the yard. She adores her daily walks which she takes with our resident dogs. Maisie is fully potty trained and crate trained. She has dinner at 7 PM and then cuddles until it is time for bed.  Maisie gets along well with other dogs. She does well with cats, as most of them are larger than her. Maisie would do best in a home without children, as she prefers a quieter and calmer environment.”   Maisie is only an option for those who have owned a dog previously. Interested homes should have experience with shy and undersocialized dogs who need continued support in confidence building. Teenagers would be the youngest age for Maisie, but an adult only home would be best suited to her lifestyle.February 20, 2024, 7:02 pm

Our adoption fees vary. Each biography will specifically list the adoption fee.Adoption Fee: $200   Miss White is a 10 year old Maltese mix who was surrendered to DPS when her former home decided they no longer wanted to care for her. This gal is looking for a home where she can live out her golden years in style and comfort and promises to provide humor and snuggles in return! Miss White has a non-shedding coat which makes her an option for those with allergies. Miss White has a heart murmur which has been diagnosed by our vet. She is not on medication at this time for the murmur, as our vet did not feel medication would be beneficial for her at the present, but it is something her adopters will need to monitor with their vet. Miss White is the perfect dog for someone seeking a faithful companion forever! She loves keeping up with her foster mom and snoozing next to her as she works. She also loves getting outside for walks and sniffs and keeps up with the younger dog she cohabitates with. As an older gal, she is content to sleep most of the day away, so she would be the perfect dog for a movie marathon lifestyle!  Miss White starts her day at 7 AM and goes outside for a quick potty break. She has breakfast before getting a 20 minute walk, keeping up with the other dog in her foster home. During the day, she snoozes in a soft bed, taking herself outside for bathroom breaks as needed. She gets another short walk in the evening before dinner. In the evening, she cuddles with her foster mom before heading to bed in her crate around 10 PM.  Miss White gets along with other dogs, but doesn’t love playful in your face pups, so a home with a puppy might not be a fit for her. She loves her walks and she perks up once she gets outside.  Miss White is an option for any home. For those with an open heart towards our gray-muzzled friends, she will be a loyal and loving companion. Kids in a home should be in their teens. February 20, 2024, 7:02 pm

Our adoption fees vary. Each biography will specifically list the adoption fee.This dog will be at a meet and greet event on Saturday, January 27th unless he/she is adopted prior to the event with a set up home. The event is from 12 pm to 3 pm at Palo Alto's Pet Food Express. Those interested in meeting the dog can come out to our meet and greet event. We no longer do application approval onsite. Anyone adopting has been previously approved and set up to meet prior to the event. Adoption Fee: $100 Donation   Wadsworth the Butler is a 12 year old Maltese mix who was surrendered to our rescue because he was “too old” for his former home. Well, we promised him we would find him the best possible home for his golden years. Wadsworth has a non shedding coat and sits patiently for grooming sessions like the gentleman he is. He is on the smaller side which makes him perfect for a warm lap! Wadsworth is on medication for heart failure but you wouldn’t know it from the way he romps around and the permanent smile on his face! The medication costs around $60 a month. His forever home will receive one month of medication to help his transition to a new home.    Below is a note from Wadsworth’s foster!  “Wadsworth has been a sweet and chill dog from day one! He is mellow but still has a ton of personality. He always has a happy wiggle, a smile, and a wagging tail. I have never known such an utter sweetheart. He loves to follow me around but is also just as happy to cuddle with our dog on the couch. Wadsworth loves resting on a lap and getting petted. He loves going on walks. If you are petting him and stop before he decides you are done, he will gently nudge you to keep showing him love. He reminds me of a happy little sloth as he snoozes with a serene look on his cute face!   Wadsworth starts his day around 6 AM, rising with the sun to head out to potty with our resident dog. My son likes to cuddle with the pups before he gets ready for school, and Wadsworth adores his snuggle time. Wadsworth takes his breakfast of kibble with broth and then settles down on the couch for a luxurious nap after getting his morning meds. He goes out every few hours for a potty break. He gets a walk in the afternoon and he loves getting his sniffs in! He gets dinner at 5 PM and then sits on the couch with us to take his evening meds. We go to bed at 10 PM and Wadsworth snuggles into his pile of blankets to dream of treats and snuggles  Wadsworth gets along very well with our resident dog. Since he is older, he wouldn’t thrive with a super active puppy who wants to play all day, but he would love a companion. He loves people as long as they aren’t too loud and stompy, so no young kiddos for this old man! Wadsworth adores his daily walks and walks well on a leash. He is fully house trained. This lovely pup will be a perfect addition to your home!”   Wadsworth would do well in just about any kind of home, as long as they are ready for snuggles and daily medication. Kids in the home should be over the age of 12 and on the calmer side.February 20, 2024, 7:02 pm
