ATTENTION:  All of our dogs are in private foster homes.  We do NOT have a kennel with multiple dogs.  If you find a dog you want to meet in person, please go to www.secondchancedogrescue.org and complete an application.    We will make every attempt to process all applications within 3 business days of receipt. // // Meet Jacks! Jacks is a 13 pound, 6 year old, hypoallergenic Poodle / Maltese mix. Jacks has a bite history and will need an experienced owner who is willing to work with him to build trust. Jacks has been patiently waiting for his forever home since his rescue from the local shelter in April 2022.    He is very loving and affectionate and loves to kiss and nibble noses, ears, and mouths if given the chance. He loves sitting right on your lap, snuggling as close as possible to you. He loves to be touching you, but doesn't love to be touched BY you. He is not a dog that likes touching or petting and will react out of fear and bite hands if provoked. We do not recommend he be around children or people who are unable to understand not to touch him. Don't mistake his fear for aggression, he has never gone after anyone for no reason. All bites were the result of being approached by hands (even with the best intentions). Despite his fear of hands, he does quite well in first encounters with strangers and has never bitten a stranger or the vet.    Jacks is extremely smart, he learned to use "Hunger For Words" talking buttons very quickly to communicate his basic needs such as "dinner", "outside", "play", and "water". He considers his crate as his safe space, where he can go when he's feeling overwhelmed. He walks very well on a leash and can walk at heel. He does great on walks and doesn't react to other dogs, cats, or humans even in busy/loud places. Jacks is very calm and well behaved during the day while his foster parents are working from home, mostly sleeping with a few potty breaks. However, he can be very vocal when he's ready for his evening walk or play time, or when his favorite person leaves the room. He does not like to be left alone and bonds very quickly.    Jacks is very playful and active. He loves to run, hike, and walk. He can go far distances at a fast pace. He does best behaviorally when he gets at least a 30 minute walk per day, although we recommend even more activity if possible. He loves to play with toys including antlers, plush squeaky toys, and other chew toys. He is somewhat treat-motivated and loves going through his tricks such as sit, shake, high five, hold hands, up, lay down, roll over, and even going "over" and "under" hurdles.    Jacks currently lives in a foster home with 2 other dogs. He is very submissive to other pets and has never bitten another animal. He is potty trained, but he may mark in an environment with other dogs if there is a smell of past pee.    He takes anti-anxiety medication Trazodone daily for his anxiety. Plan on getting Jacks groomed every 6-8 weeks. He has a special sedating medicine that can be used, and we can recommend a groomer in San Diego who is familiar with his needs.    With a lot of love and dedication, Jack will make the perfect dog for the right family. He is neutered, microchipped, and current on vaccines. His adoption fee is $300. All Second Chance Dog Rescue dogs are spayed/neutered, are up to date on vaccines and have microchips prior to adoption.   Adoption fees vary depending on age of dog. Fees help Second Chance Dog Rescue cover spay/neuter costs,   vaccinations, medical treatments, food and supplies. Please go to  www.secondchancedogrescue.org  and complete an application today!    All dogs live in private foster homes until they are adopted.  June 15, 2024, 12:44 am

Story
Watson is a purebred 4 years old Mini-poodle. He is loving, affectionate and playful!  However, he was diagnosed with a seizure condition since he was 1.5 years old. He has been on medication since then. Today, he takes 4-types of medications twice a day. He has been treated and monitored under a specialty veterinarian neurologist locally.  He gets his annual checkup and also 2 of the 4 medications need semi-annual blood work to make sure the dosages are appropriate. With the medication, he has mild seizures about every other month.  Unfortunately, our family is in a situation that we can't accommodate him anymore. He is in San Diego and pet fee will be waived if a local family adopts him. Otherwise, it will be just the shipping charge there might be. Please reach out for any questions.

Story
Dudley is a lovable little guy. When our grandfather passed away, he was left without a home. We took him in, but we are not able to keep him. We are a seven-person family (three kids) and have two cats. He gets along well with everyone and loves attention. He only has one eye, but he can navigate well, and he does not need any medication for the lost eye. He enjoys walks, time with other dogs at the park or beach, and lots of cuddles. Dudley would love to be the newest, fluffiest addition to your family. Thank you!
