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: $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.July 22, 2024, 12:56 pm

Sonny is a handsome guy that will melt your heart! He is a 1-year-old, 8-pound, cream and white colored, Shih Tzu / Chihuahua mix ? Sonny was a stray at the Lodi City shelter when we pulled him, He has an adorable curled tail. Sunny will need a person who works from home and is with him most of the time.

He is getting used to the routine of going outside with the command “go potty”. He keeps his kennel clean at night. He is a sweet, loving and playful boy. Sonny is scheduled to be neutered but we are looking for his home now. He is microchipped and up to date on vaccinations. Are you ready for some fun-loving company?

Story
Need a playful puppy to add joy to your world? Meet Peaches. She is a nearly 5-month-old, Cream and Apricot, Shih Tzu / Papillion Mystery mix and weighs 6.38 pounds. She is NOT hypoallergenic but will require regular professional grooming to look her best. Peaches loves playing with her toys and does not like to share at the sanctuary. She could be best suited to being an only dog though she will play with other dogs. She loves to do Zoomies. She might be tiny but she has a great big personality. She loves everyone she meets and she is definitely the definition of a happy puppy and will jump up on your lap and give kisses. She is a PUPPY and may need more house training but she is getting the hang of going outside to potty on the command “go potty”. A good routine needs to be established early. She is learning to use the doggy door but is too small to go outside alone. She will need leash training when she is old enough to be outside safely. Due to her small size and spunky nature, she needs a home without young children, gentle teenagers ok. Peaches is scheduled to be spayed but we are looking for her home now. She is currently vaccinated: She has been microchipped. Peaches is ready for her happily ever after.

Meet the handsome Scooter! He is a 1-year-old, 12-pound, black with chocolate highlights, Shih Tzu mix? He is a happy and loving boy. He is looking for a home with a lot of human interaction. He gets along well with other dogs but would be fine in a single dog home. He is a great little companion and a great snuggle buddy! He needs a family home with kids 10 years and older or an active adult home where he gets of daily walks and lots of play time. He seems to be housebroken. Here at the sanctuary, we use the command "Go Potty" before taking the dogs outside to do their business. Scooter is happy to comply. This is a great habit to continue. He may need leash training. He will need regular professional grooming to look his best. He has been neutered is microchipped and up to date on vaccinations. Do you have room in your heart and home for this sweet boy? Scooter is waiting to be your new best friend.

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.
