Thank you so very much Dayna for taking a chance on a deaf Dane! Finn is snow Koda!


Private Foster Care Needed

Private Foster Care Needed

We got a call today from a nice woman who is trying to find short term foster care for her ill mother. Here is what she wrote to us:

“Lucy is a healthy 2 1/2 year old Great Dane, who is up-to-date on all of her vaccinations. She is very friendly to familiar faces, but is very anxious around strangers, especially when on the leash out of the home. This anxiety can manifest itself in barking, growling, and lunging at strangers, but can be redirected with treats. She is leash and crate trained and knows basic commands (sit, down, stay, get on your bed, etc.). She is also EXTREMELY food motivated. She does well around other dogs, but has limited interaction with children and cats, so I am not entirely sure how she would react. She does like to eat inanimate objects such as socks and masks, but less so recently. Housebroken.

While Lucy is a big personality, she is very sweet to her owners and wants nothing more than to cuddle on the couch. She provides ample amounts of laughter and love, and the thought of parting with her for even a short period of time is heartbreaking.

My mom is a cancer patient and is unable to care for Lucy on her own. I have pretty much taken over as Lucy’s owner, but I will be unable to care for her from May 1st-June 30th. During that time, I would need someone to take care of her. There is a possibility that I can care for Lucy sooner than June 30th, but that is still very much up in the air.

I really appreciate your help in assessing options for Lucy.

Thanks to Annie’s owner, Todd Hunter for sending us this beautiful photo of his girl Annie. Annie came in with what w assume was her daughter from the Yuba shelter. Both were found as strays but both had such good dispositions!

Thor – Private Adoption

Here is what Thor’s owner wrote about him.

” My boy’s name is Thor and he did turn 6 this year. He is so loving and grew up with my daughters who
Are 10, 9, and 8 but he has been around kids his whole life. He is great with all ages and even strangers. He loves anyone who is willing to give him love. He is not aggressive at all but we don’t socialize him often because of his size. Everything others dogs are around he gets excited and his size makes them attack him which gets him worked up but he’s never bitten or gotten into any altercations with any other dogs. Just lots of sniffing and barking. He is very spoiled so not very good on the leash so we have always just used soft choke leashes on him. We do have another dog that also grew up with him but it still does not help with the separation anxiety. It’s getting really bad and very hard to watch him suffer. The other dog we have does nothing for him. He is a full time inside dog except for when we leave the house because he is so smart he always opens our freezers and tries to eat people food. He’s too smart for his own good. He is AKC . He’s got the biggest paws and is just majestic in person. He’s is a mostly white with blue eyes. No vision or hearing loss. He’s amazing. He truly is the sweetest thing.”

Thor would benefit from a home with people who do no wok out of the home. With his separation anxiety he wants people around him as often as he can. If interested in this sweet boy, please contact us at [email protected] if you have completed an Aoption Application.

Both Puppies Found Homes Quickly because of our waitlist!

What cute babies, right? They came in together and since they were too young to be altered, we pulled from our “adopted from us before” wait list.

So far babies doing well and growing. Update photos soon! When we get in youngsters who can’t be altered our only choice is to adopt to families we have worked with before and trust to bring them back to us for altering later on.
