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.Adoption Fee: $700 Pebbles is a 2 year old Shih Tzu mix who is the cutest little gal you could ask for! Pebbles was rescued from a dirty backyard along with several other dogs. We had to shave her down completely to free her from her matted prison, but after a groom and a bath she felt a million times better. She was immediately showering us in grateful kisses and cuddles. Pebbles is a petite gal with gorgeous markings and an even more amazing personality. Pebbles has a non-shedding coat which makes her an option for those with allergies.    If you are looking for a permanent snuggle buddy best friend to live your best life with, look no further than Pebbles! Pebbles is incredibly sweet and has a fabulous temperament, despite how humanity treated her before she was rescued. She loves sitting next to her foster mama as she gets work done and would be a fabulous WFH companion or Zoom mascot. However, she’s also good at entertaining herself as needed when she’s left at home. Pebbles is the perfect size for a purse but she also loves her walks! Pebbles is more of a lounger than a marathoner, so if you’re hoping for a couch companion, that’s our Pebbles. Pebbles deserves to find a home ready to make her the center of their world. She will give you endless kisses once you shower her in treats and cuddles. She is going to make her lucky family so happy. She is the perfect little lapdog who would be a fabulous shopping companion. Maybe she’ll even get a closet of her own!  Pebbles starts her morning around 7 AM with cuddles and kisses for her foster parents. She heads to the backyard for a quick potty break and then gets a short walk to the mailbox. She has breakfast and then takes a nap in a soft bed while her foster mom starts the workday. In the afternoon, Pebbles gets another potty break followed by play time. After work ends for the day, Pebbles takes a walk around the neighborhood followed by monitoring the gardening activities. She has her dinner at 6 PM and then settles into the couch for well-deserved snuggles. After some more playtime, she goes out for a night potty trip and then heads to her crate at 10 PM.  Pebbles lives with a resident dog currently and they get along very well. She makes friends easily and loves to get her play on. Pebbles walks very well on a leash but will sometimes decide she is ready for some mid-walk cuddles and then ask you to carry her home. Such a Princess. Pebbles gets along well with all humans but due to her small size, little kiddos would likely overwhelm her. Pebbles is such a lovely pup and is just so excited to meet her forever people!    Pebbles is an option for those with prior dog experience. Interested homes must be prepared to discuss grooming. Kids in the home should be over the age of 10.June 25, 2024, 9:25 am

Our adoption fees vary. Each biography will specifically list the adoption fee.Adoption Fee: $650   Dewey is a 2 year old Shih Tzu x Poodle mix who is ready to hit the paw-ty scene with his forever home! Dewey was rescued from an overcrowded shelter in Central California that sent out the paw signal for assistance. This lovely boy trotted his way into the heart of his rescuer and he hasn’t looked back since! Dewey weighs around 20 pounds which makes him the perfect size for air travel, errands, or anything else you want to get up to! Deweys beautiful cream-colored coat will require regular grooming to ensure he looks his handsome best. He is not a true hypoallergenic dog but for those looking for less hair, he’s your man!    Dewey is the ultimate love bug who can’t wait to find his new best friend to shower with affectionate kisses. Dewey has a lovely, playful energy and he loves his squeaky toys. If you let him, he would sit on a throne of toys like the royal he is! Dewey has a knack for befriending every human he meets and loves showing off his fabulous personality. He has a fabulous sploot, with his legs rivaling even the greatest gymnast. In fact, we wouldn’t be surprised to see him in Paris later this summer competing for Team USA! Dewey has a puppy-like temperament and is still very much looking for a playful home where he can show off his zoomies and fetch techniques. He would love to join you on whatever adventures summer has in store, from trips to the beach to nights under the stars. Dog-friendly s’mores? Sign Dewey up for three! Dewey adores his people and would love to be your WFH buddy, as long as he gets out for his daily romps.  Dewey is house trained and crate trained. He gets two walks a day and loves his romps. He knows basic commands (sit, down, stay, off, leave it, place) and is highly food motivated. Dewey is also super smart and would love learning more tricks to increase his repertoire. Dewey would love a backyard for his daily zoomies.  Dewey loves playing with dogs of all ages and sizes. He does have some over eager behaviors on a leash, due to a lack of socialization prior to his rescue. He will need a home dedicated to his ongoing training to ensure he can regulate his excitement on and off leash. Dewey would be a fabulous candidate for a neighborhood where he can practice those skills. He would love a confident dog sibling to continue helping him reach his best self. If you’re looking for a handsome man with a selfie face, look no further than Dewey!   Dewey is only an option for homes who have previously owned a dog. Kids in the home should be over the age of 10.June 25, 2024, 9:25 am

Story
Roxy is a good companion dog. She is playful and good with children. She does pull on the leash and also can bark and lunge at other dogs when on the leash. She does not bark when on my patio. She behaves well in the house. She will go out the front door unless told to stay. She does need more training on the leash. I think she would respond well to training.

Story
Balanced with a bit of sweet and savory fusion, Pad Thai is sure to be a hit in any household. He is a gentle pocket-sized Shih Tzu who could use a little TLC to build his confidence and allow him to be the life of the party! This boy loves other dogs, enjoys moderate exercise, and can people watch like it's nobody's business. If you're looking for the perfect mutt to stimulate all your senses, Pad Thai surely fits the bill! He is hospice due to a tumor on his tonsils, it was completely removed but will most likely grow back. Due to this and other conditions related to his advanced age he has joined our hospice program. Here's some notes from his foster: Pad Thai, who we are calling Paddy, is doing good. Day by day he gets a little more comfy. He is a big sleeper and also loves morning sun spots on the porch. He prefers short walks. He's excellent at walking up stairs but is currently a bit too frightened of walking downstairs so he needs to be carried. He loves food and treats!

Story
Flora is a very shy girl that needs someone who will take the time and has the patience to work with her! Once she opens up she will be a great dog who loves her person/people! Since she is so shy she cannot be in a home with kids and preferably with only one or two adults. She has stranger danger and does take time to get to know you. Flora will bark at strangers. She would do best in a home being able to be with her sister Ysabel. Please call 707-459-4900 if you have any questions or to set up an appointment to meet Flora.
