Story
Hi there, My name is Charlie! I'm a outgoing, adventurous young dog with gobs and gobs of energy. I enjoy meeting new people and dogs but my manners need a little work so I may be too much for younger children. I'm a happy boy that can't get enough of running zoomies in the yard and playing with toys, I'm a great walker and am up for hikes once I get all my wiggles out!  I'm a neutered male Rottweiler/ shepherd mix who is around two years old and weighs about 77 lbs. I'm very treat motivated which helps when working on my training! I would love to meet you, so please fill out the application below to learn more about me.

Story
We are thrilled to introduce Hugo - a true Ambassador of this phenomenal breed. A 100 lb, roughly 2 yr old, über friendly, neutered, "handsome boy", Hugo is healthy, up to date on vax, and microchipped. He is loving, loyal and super derpy. However, don’t confuse his derp for dumb, this guy is incredibly intelligent and a very affectionate boy who loves physical touch. He melts into your lap with head massages and ear rubs. Hugo is also a professional enchanter that can enchant any human into rubbing his belly for hours. He enjoys walks and is excellent on leash, loves chasing balls, chewing on big dawg chew toys and giving great big bear hugs. He knows sit, wait, paw, and has been working on “leave it”. Hugo is a pleaser, listens well and whoever had him before he came to us clearly loved and took excellent care of him. We are told his human(s) lived in an RV and likely could no longer care for him in the exorbitantly priced Bay Area. He is an exceptional power eater that could blow up Joey Chestnut’s Major League Eating titles on a bad day! He likes him some food! PACC is looking for a moderately active family to keep Hugo in the fine shape he is currently in - and a family who likes their dogs "BIG"! Hugo needs his walks and romps but he's no marathoner. He's not even a 10K'r - more like a 3/4 mile to miler. Hugo is wayyy too interested in cats hence there should be no felines in the home and any little humans dwelling in or visiting the home should be in their teens both because little ones take time, dogs take time and few families have time for both AND this guy is big & rough & tumbly (in a cute goofy knock you over kinda way). Hugo is being fostered here in Half Moon Bay and made himself at home right quick! If Hugo sounds like a good fit (moderately active household, other medium to large dogs ok and PACC will help make sure its a good fit; no cats; teens and above only; and the time and big hearts needed to care for this one of a kind goofball) complete the adoption application below and we will be in touch! NOTE: While PACC works hard not to discriminate on potential adopter living situations, we are also faced with the reality that breed discrimination is alive and well in the Bay Area, particularly for Rottweilers. As such, preference will be given to home owning adopters, as landlords are notorious for changing the rules, and moving around with a rottie, no matter how friendly they are, is EXTREMELY DIFFICULT. Apologies in advance for this unfortunate reality. COPY AND PASTE THE LINK BELOW IN YOUR BROWSER, Adopt-a-Pet does not support live links! https://forms.gle/GwmjBVnbbtEmK7tk8

Story
Koda and Lulu are a little over one year old. They are pure breed Rotties. They are brother and sister from the same litter. I did purchase them from a breeder in Bakersfield California. They’re very playful. They are house trained. They are crate trained they love to play tug-of-war they love to cuddle and do require a lot of attention. I am having to re-home due to family emergency. I really wish there was a way that I could keep them but they need a home where someone will be very active with them and spend a lot of time with them. They are both indoor and outdoor dogs.

Pete T is a 10 year old mostly black bi-color Rottweiller / German Shepherd mix.  He is happy boy whose favorite thing is to play fetch with his human.  Pete takes treats gently, loves to carry a ball around with him, and has the waggiest tail you are likely to encounter.  He is good with adults, dogs, and older kids.  Pete is a high energy, athletic dog.  He would love to have a strong, patient foster or adopter to guide him with basic commands and leash manners. Thulani does not charge an adoption fee and provides medical coverage for life.  Our seniors come with a supply of food, a cushy bed, and their favorite toys. ##1707838##

Story
Meet Choco! This leggy hunk came to the Shelter as an owner surrender after his previous guardian was unable to take care of. Choco has been social and sweet with people since arriving at the Shelter. He has also been social with people, including children ages 3 to 7, in his previous home. Choco can be exuberant in greeting (jumping up on people to say hi) so adopters should be mindful that sturdy children and guardian oversight is highly recommended. Choco has history of rough and tumbling with other dogs in his previous home. At the Shelter he has been a bit of a bulldozer in interactions with other dogs. Due to this, Choco is recommended to be the only dog in the home. To set Choco up for success, adopters should plan to manage his interactions with other dogs by not bringing him to off-leash areas (dog parks, beaches, etc) and proactively work with him on his dog to dog skills with a force free behavior consultant. Choco previously lived outdoors in his former home so adopters may need to be patient in the transition with Choco’s potty training. This handsome gent will enjoy above average mental and physical stimulation in his next home.
