Story
Ginny  is super sweet and playful, especially with other dogs. She's a little skittish at first and takes a little while to warm up, but once she's comfortable with you, she is sweet, a champion snuggler, and an all-around great companion. Energy Level?  Medium House trained?  Yes Describe how they are on a leash. Does well on a leash. Likes to stop and smell all the smells. Describe how they are with other dogs?     Ginny plays nice with other dogs and has lived with other dogs; however, she would do well as your one and only.   She loves all the attention. Have they been around cats or other animals? How were they?  Ginny has been in home with a dog-savvy cat and did very well. Commands they know?  She comes when called.  What are their favorite things?  Playing with other dogs, chewing on toys and treats, and snuggling with her people. She also enjoys being outside and exploring our backyard. What do they need to work on?   Ginny  is still learning what's okay and not okay to chew. She'll need lots of toys that are safe for chewing and some patience and understanding while she figures it out.  How are they when left alone? How long have they been left alone?  She has been alone for up to 8 hours and has been okay. She may howl briefly as we leave but then quiets down. She is generally happy in her crate and has a good view of all her foster fur siblings. Where do they sleep?  In a small crate in our bedroom. She sleeps well through the night and enjoys a morning snuggle in our bed when there's time. What is their ideal home?   Ginny 's perfect home includes at least one other similarly-sized dog because doggy playtime is her favorite thing. She'll need a family who can give her some time and space to get comfortable, as she can be pretty skittish initially. She'll also need patience as she learns what's okay to chew and what's not. Once she's comfortable with you and all settled in, she is an excellent companion and will reward you with epic snuggles and much love. Ginny should be in an adult only home. July 19, 2024, 12:11 am

Story
Looks like: Rat Terrier mix Female, 6 years old (estimated), 14 pounds Harley may only have one eye, but she's not letting anything slow her down! This spunky girl has an incredibly fun-loving attitude and is always ready for playtime, snuggle time, dinner time, and every time in between. She greets every adventure with the sweetest wagging tail. Her perfect day would be going for a nice stroll, playing with her pals, tossing around her favorite squeaky toy, and snoozing the afternoon away in your lap. Though Harley is a pretty wonderful pup her ideal home would be child free as she can be easily startled by the tiny humans. She loves dogs but being that she's a queen bee she prefers the submissive type. We have not yet had the opportunity to see how she is with cats. Her adopter would need to be familiar with the chihuahua and terrier breed or be willing to learn about them in order to properly address her needs. This sweet girl joined us after she was brought into Hitchcock Road Animal Services as a stray in serious need of medical care for a prolapsed eye.

Story
Looks like: Rat Terrier mix Female, 12 years old (estimated), 9 pounds This precious little lady has really blossomed since going to her foster home. Her foster reports that she has been an absolute pleasure to have around and is surprised everyday that she has not yet been adopted. Some of her favorite things include napping the day away, going for slow sniff walks where she can truly stop and smell the roses, and greeting new canine friends politely on leash. She sleeps like an angel in her open door crate or comfy dog bed. Lavender does great with other pups and is very fond of the dogs in her foster home. She has had a dental that has left her with 5 healthy teeth so she mostly eats soft or wet food. This sweet girl joined us from the Santa Cruz County Animal Services so we could address her medical needs.

Story
Looks like: Rat Terrier mix Male, 12 years old (estimated), 16 pounds Little Pinky is a dog of few words but has a way of expressing his personality in a big way! This goofy character is ready for any adventure you have in mind for him. Going for a walk? He'd love to join! Need company at dinner? Of course Pinky would love to be there! Somehow this sweet guy landed at the scary shelter. Despite the overwhelming sights, sounds, and smells of the shelter, Pinky showed himself to be a friend to all dogs, both big and small, and loved seeking comfort from humans. Pinky had the opportunity to meet a cat at our office and he did great, giving the kitty a respectful amount of space. Pinky joined POMDR from Ventura County Animal Services.

Story
Hark! It is Brewski! Your knight in speckled, spotted and shining armor! Who knew a leggy Rat Terrier mix would show up to save you from boredom, bad choices, loneliness and unwarranted sullenness? We knew! The guy is 100% legit. He gets along with dogs, cats, kids and other humans. He is house trained and doesn't mind taking the stairs. He possesses no swords (we checked), but vast amounts of chivalry. Come meet him and get a load of his noble and polite bearing. Note: Snuggles and boops are not beneath him. Here's some notes from his foster: Brewski is super sweet and very snuggly! Will jump into your lap and snuggle with you. Does super well in car rides! Will slowly fall asleep. Very peppy and can go on endless adventures. I don't think he's 14! He acts very young for his age! Brewski will follow you everywhere in the cutest way possible! Loves to play with toys. He's potty trained! Haven't had an accident inside ever!
