Story
Looks like: Maltese, Poodle Mix Male, 14 years old (estimated), 18 pounds Buddy Boy is looking for his forever pal. Could that be you? Buddy is a gentle senior fellow who is a little hard of hearing and is starting to lose his eyesight, but if you lay a blanket or towel down on the couch, he will see that as his spot and will be ready to cuddle up and nap the day away! Buddy does great around other dogs and has lived with many canine companions over the years. He used to live with a cat as well. He has also lived with children, but in his senior years, he prefers a quieter home and would love to find someone with whom he can share a peaceful retirement. He loves riding in the car and gets short spurts of zoomies, running around with his soft toys! Buddy can be quite nervous in new situations and meeting new people, so slow and gentle greetings are a must. But he loves people! Once he's met you and gotten some snuggles, you're in his circle! He'll follow you around asking for pets and will even paw at you for attention. Sadly, Buddy Boy's senior guardian recently passed away after being together for the past 14 years. He came to POMDR to find his next cuddle buddy.

Story
Looks like: Maltese mix Female, 8 years old (estimated), 13 pounds Dottie is a very gentle and mellow little lady who will immediately invite anyone she meets to give her belly rubs or pick her up. And who could ever resist petting her silky and beautiful coat? Her natural black lipstick is probably one of her most adorable features, along with her serious snoring and wild REM dreams. In spite of her blindness, she navigates her surroundings amazingly well, although she needs a bit of a guiding hand on slow leashed walks in unknown territory. This sweet girl gets excited when she catches a whiff of another dog nearby, then follows her nose to go sniffing for them. She can be a bit clumsy and may accidentally bump into other dogs, sometimes to the surprise of all involved. She does not have any known experience with small children and would prefer to live in a calm and predictable household. Miss Dottie has tons of joy and love to share and is looking for human companions who will make her golden years extra special and are understanding of her needs. She would like you to know that car rides make her pretty nervous and being left home alone makes her anxious. She would love to find someone who is equally content spending lots of quality snuggle time at home, would enjoy toddling around the yard together, or going for slow strolls in the surrounding neighborhood. This 13+ pound nugget needs to get picked up and carried around a bit and she would also appreciate continued potty training. Her foster family likes to brush her luxurious curls every day and, above all, just love her to pieces. Dottie came to us from Hollister Animal Services so that she could get the medical care she needs.

Story
Looks like: Maltese mix Female, 10 years old (estimated), 9 pounds Little Chispita may be tiny, but she's just overflowing with love to share! This sweet girl wants to be everyone's best friend. And if you're willing to spend some time giving her some belly rubs, she'll love you even more. This little lady has got some serious pep in her step and is excited to explore the world with you, especially if it means meeting more people and pups. Chispita had a "ruff" time before she came into our care, having been found on the streets severely matted. Despite this difficult start, she's incredibly sweet and loving. She's in the perfect place in life to land in her forever home. She gets along great with dogs and kids and would thrive in a house with both. She also gets along with polite kitties, though she's not as interested in them. Chispita came to us after having been found as a stray and being taken to Hitchcock Road Animal Services.

Story
WEIGHT: ~12lbs.Meet Goofy- Here is a guy who is in need of two things asap: a forever home and a better name. Not that ‘Goofy' is a bad name, to be sure it's actually quite a famous name, it's just that it doesn't really suit him. Goofy is a sweet guy who would do well in a variety of different home environments. He has done exceptionally well with other dogs here at the shelter, and we have every reason to believe that he could coexist well with cats if given the proper introduction. So far Goofy has been a little more on the reserved side here in the shelter and is a bit unsure of the frenzied activity and noisy comings and goings of shelter life so a quieter home, or one with older dog-savvy kids, may be best for him. Think you can come up with a more suitable name and a forever home for our darling Goofy? Call our adoptions desk or feel free to stop by the shelter during Browsing Hours: Wed-Sun 11-5.
