POTTER

Rat Terrier NEUTERED male, 7 years young and 19 pounds. Little dog, BIG personality! Potter is full of life! He's a very big fan of hanging out on the couch and cuddling. We'll be posting more about Potter as we get to know him. Come on down to the shelter and meet this little guy!

LOBITO

Tiny Dog, male, 3 months old and 6 pounds.

This little guy was surrendered to us when his human companion sadly needed to find him a new home. He loved this little one and it was a difficult decision. Lobito is in a foster home, not at the shelter. We are accepting applications for his adoption.

FRED

Mixed Breed 10 month old puppy, NEUTERED male, 41 pounds.

UPDATE: Fred Astaire is pretty mellow for a young pup. He is easy to leash and walks pretty good. He pulls a little and jumped a couple of times but not bad. He loved exploring the play yard. He was not interested in playing ball but did enjoy running back and forth from fence line to fence. He loves treats and will sit sometimes. Fred will benefit a lot from a training class (ask us about classes in Ukiah.) Fred will give soft kisses and is very affectionate.

Look at this goofy boy! Fred is known at the shelter as Fred Astaire--he's a great dancer and full of joi de vivre! He was ready to play when he met Harrison--a young and energetic male shelter guest. We'll update Fred's bio as we get to know him. In the mean time, tap dance on down to the shelter and meet this friendly, funny dog!

RUFIO

Mixed Breed NEUTERED male, 1 year old and 95+ pounds.

Sweet and mellow, we love big lugnut dogs like Rufio! In his past home, Rufio lived with canine siblings. Rufio really likes to LEAN IN! During his meet and greet/evaluation, Rufio met Harrison, a VERY happy and active fellow shelter guest, and found Harrison's play bows interesting. Rufio needs a home WITHOUT LIVESTOCK.

OZZY

OK, it's true--I'm not a dog. I'm a NEUTERED GOAT. I like horses, and in fact, I'm cohabitating with a horse right here at the shelter. For information about me, call 467-6453 to speak to the Adoption Coordinator.

JUICE

Mixed Breed big dog! NEUTERED male, 1 year old and 95+ pounds.

Juice is a big guy who is not clingy, but likes to get close for pets and affection. For a big guy, he he walks well on leash. During his meet and greet/evaluation, Juice met a very, very playful, neutered male dog. Juice seemed interested in joining the fun! Look here for updates on Juice, as we spend time with him and get to know him.

BUCKWHEAT

Terrier Blend, NEUTERED male, 10 months old and 20 pounds.

UPDATE: Buckwheat spent a weekend at a foster home, and his foster folks told us he is a great little dog. Bucky is non-stop fun and action. He's smart, loving and friendly. He was smitten with the senior Russell Terrier in his foster home, and followed him around attempting to get the little guy to play with him, with no luck. Bucky needs basic manners training, as he is very tenacious when he wants something--for exammple, getting up on the furniture! We have no doubts that he will learn quickly. During his three-day stay, Bucky's foster folks were pro-active about getting him outside, and there were no accidents in the house. On his first night, Bucky was introduced to a soft-sided crate, which he protested, but after 15 minutes, he settled down, and that's where he stayed each night--his protests getting shorter each day! PLus, after the initial protests, Bucky slept quietly the entire night. Bucky is a counter surfer, and his curiosity may lead him to garbage pails, etc, so his new guardian will need to keep an eye on him. Buckwheat is a lover, and he bonded VERY quickly to his canine and human housemates. We think Bucky is a real diamond in the rough!

We're putting out a cuteness APB on Buckwheat! This little guy is big on sweetness. During his evaluation and meet & greet, Buckwheat was introduced to an exuberant puppy lacking in play skills! Buckwheat was appropriate, and just ignored the pup. We'll be posting all of our staff and volunteers observations about Bucky, so please watch this space!

EEYORE

Mixesd Breed NEUTERED male, 1 year old and 41 pounds.

Slightly shy but very much a cuddler, Eeyore will be a GREAT couch-buddy! This beautiful guy, with the sincere eyes, enjoys the company of people. He was a little bit afraid of Sunny, a neutered male doggie guest, when the two met during Eeyore's evaluation and meet and greet. Watch this space for Eeyore updates!
