Story
Spur, who we sometimes call Wiggles, is a sweet little 3-legged Heeler Pit mix. She recently lost her leg due to an old injury but gets around great. She loves to cuddle on the couch and will do anything for a belly rub. Her favorite things are cuddling on the couch, chewing, and food. She would be best as an only dog or if the dog is submissive. She does great with the 12-lb chihuahua mix in her foster home, but is still figuring out how to play. She only barks when she's trying to get the other dog to play. She does live with 4 cats and can get a bit in their space. We think she would like to play with the cats, but doesn't speak their language. She is housebroken and crate trained. She's a big cuddle bug and enjoys her human the most. If you'd like to meet Spur, please fill out an application at http://caws.org/adoption-application. Dogs are not placed on a first-come, first-serve basis. We strive to find the perfect home for each animal. Applications may take up to 48 hours to process. All CAWS animals are fixed, microchipped, and vaccinated. Her adoption fee is $200. If you are interested in adopting a CAWS pet, please fill out an online application at https://caws.org/adoption-applicationJune 9, 2023, 7:46 am

Story
We adopted Chalupa from the Camp Pendleton, California, dog shelter in 2018. His backstory prior to this is unknown but we were told he was 2-years-old at that time, making him roughly 7-years-old now. He’s a friendly, sweet, and cuddly boy but is very energetic and anxious. He requires a house with a yard and an experienced adopter to tend to these needs. He’s never shown aggression to the family, but is skeptical of some dogs, gets along great with other dogs, and dislikes cats. Our circumstances aren’t what we hoped they’d be at this point in time, and it’s become hard to tend to all of Chalupa’s needs with the attention they deserve amidst apartment living, a new baby, shifting job prospects, and school. We feel like we’re failing him and we think he’d be happier in a new environment where he can run freely in open spaces under the care of an experienced owner. Chalupa is up-to-date on his shots, is microchipped, house-trained, crate-trained, and he knows basic commands.

Needs experienced adopter, Spayed or Neutered,
Story
We got Chaco from a shelter 9 months ago (2 years old at the time). He weighs about 60 pounds and is a pretty slender/muscly dog. He is house trained and has only exhibited problems peeing in the house when you put him in his crate for a long time without a bathroom break beforehand. He tends to be super calm and lazy for the majority of the day. He is calm and friendly around humans most the time. While he is mostly friendly with other dogs, we are careful when taking him on a leash. He is an extreme cuddler and loves to lay on your lap/chest on the couch and bed. We have put him through professional dog training with Tip Top K9 and he is pretty well responsive to most basic commands. He still tends to bark at people at the door, and is pretty defensive when they first walk into the house. He does have bite history with humans. The last occurrence was a few weeks ago. Not quite comfortable with how he might handle with kids so we thought he may not be the best fit for us.

Story
REPORTED BY FORMER OWNER: Indoor dog. Crate trained, house trained. Knows the sit and stay commands. Previously lived with respectful children and did well with them. Medium energy level. Very loving dog; loves cuddles. Needs a family that can spend time with her and a home with a yard. OBSERVED BY SHELTER STAFF: Owner reports Luna is not good with other dogs; she has been neutral here at the shelter; a meet and greet is highly recommended if you have another dog. Would chase a cat if she had the chance. Needs some work walking nicely on the leash. Treat motivated and is gentle when taking them from your hand. Can be playful and energetic, but also has an “off” switch. Weighs 62 pounds; $25 to adopt.

Story
OBSERVED BY SHELTER STAFF: Sweet, cuddly and friendly with people. Not a fan of other dogs behind barriers and will need a slow introduction to them if there is another dog in the home. Would most likely chase a cat if he had the chance. We noticed he does have some balding on his back, which is most likely due to genetics and food allergy. A medical release of liability will need to be signed upon adoption. He most likely needs a diet of fish or beef-based dry dog food. He loves to play with soft/squeaky toys, but can also be a mellow fellow. He’s very gentle when taking treats and is treat motivated. This fellow is looking for a great forever home with a semi-active person or family with respectful children. Weighs 66 pounds; $25 to adopt.

Story
OBSERVED BY SHELTER STAFF: Bella is a girl that likes to be on the go! She loves getting attention from people! She’s super-sweet and cuddly and very playful. She pulls somewhat when walking on the leash, but appears house trained and knows the sit, shake and down commands. She’s treat motivated and enjoys a game of tug-of-war if anyone is up for the challenge!Bella is not a big fan of anyone touching her mouth so a home with smaller children may not be a good fit. She appears to like the other dogs here at the shelter unless she is behind a barrier (like a kennel door or fence.) She would most likely chase a cat if she had the change. Weighs 54 pounds; $25 to adopt.

Story
Maizie is a young, small, pitbull mix around 1 yo that absolutely LOVES everyone and everything. She is partially (or fully) deaf and will need an adopter that is willing to train her despite her loss of hearing. Maisie would be great around all ages of respectful children and she absolutely adores kids, maybe even more than other animals. She also loves all dogs and cats and wants to play non-stop ! She would be happiest in a home with children and/or another younger active dog. Need a companion for that puppy that is driving you nuts – then she is your gal ! She would happily play all day long if you let her. She is night time crate trained and is working on her daytime crate training. Housetrained. Dogs are not placed on a first-come, first-serve basis. We strive to find the perfect home for each animal. Applications may take up to 48 hours to process. All CAWS animals are fixed, microchipped, and vaccinated. Her adoption fee is $200.

Story
Meet Kash, a good boy with a low key personality that is looking for a calm home to settle into. Kash is a 7 year old, petite 36# boxer or bully mix of sorts, who gets along with all people and pets- he is a sweet and loving boy! Kash especially loves kids, and happily lives parallel with other dogs and cats. He loves to play in the water and goes wild for a game of fetch! Kash is house trained and is excellent about using the dog door to go outside. His favorite places to be are with his people, snoozing on the couch, or following anyone around in the yard. He is an extra, EXTRA loyal and loving boy who is looking forward to the second half of his life and being with people who will provide a balanced home for him to thrive in. Kash is a generally nervous boy who is seeking a balanced and calm home where he can mirror match the calm energy of his people. He can be anxious at times and does take a couple of doggy medications that are affordable, and will help him to stay calm and relaxed throughout his day. He prefers to not be left alone too often, and would be happiest where someone was home with him or able to take him along most of the time. Bonus if you have other calm and confident dogs in the home to provide him companionship. If you think you might have a special place for this extra loving boy please apply online at caws.org. Kash is fixed, vaccinated and microchipped. His adoption fee is just $200. Thanks!

Needs special attention, Spayed or Neutered,
Story
Sawyer is a “Pocket Bully” born in September 2018 with a cleft lip, cleft palate, and spina bifida. He is currently eating and drinking safely on his own and we don’t believe his cleft lip/palate will require any surgical intervention. Sawyer will always need a little extra supervision to make sure he doesn’t eat anything dangerous for him, and will never be able to safely eat wet or goopy foods like canned food, peanut butter, yogurt, or any other liquids other than water. But otherwise he is expected to live a long, healthy life. The spina bifida causes Sawyer to be incontinent and to have some weakness in his back legs. He can walk and get around very well, but he will be in diapers for the rest of his life. He is a very happy, spunky pup and is friendly with humans and other dogs. He needs a committed home willing to give him the extra care he needs to thrive. Sawyer has been neutered, is current on vaccinations, has tested negative for heartworm and is also micro chipped. If you are interested in adopting, please complete our online adoption application at www.uaaf.org. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please email Jenn at jennc@mac.com or text at 801-554-9501.
