Mixed Breed SPAYED female, 2 years old and 55 pounds.

APPLE GOES TO CASA DE LAURA Ms. Apple has been spending time at CASA DE LAURA, and Laura sent us this update: Apple came to foster on 7.24.19, and currently lives with 6 other dogs with whom she gets along. She was initially shy, but has made good progress and is now able to go up to people on her walks to say “hi” and enjoys a pet. She can be very sweet as well as stubborn at times. Apple is crate trained, housebroken. She knows “sit” and is working on other obedience skills, and she as good indoor skills. Apple likes to hang out in her crate, but I prefer she hang out with everyone else in the evening. She finds a dog bed to get comfy on, and stays there until it’s time to go out for a last night time pee, then into her crate for the night. She walks well on-leash after she gets going. It can be a little challenging for her to start, but responds to encouragement. She also freaks out a bit when a vehicle passes, stopping and pancaking down. Apple doesn’t really know how to play, but is starting to learn with a couple of the younger dogs in her foster home. She and her new family should continue training together in order for her to be the best dog she can be.

PHOTO SHOOT NOTES: Delightful, elegant, attractive and appealing--Apple is a lover! She was no problem at all leashing up and walking. In the play yard, she was friendly and a real charmer! And talk about cute!

The apple of our eye, Apple is an easy going girl. Right now, Apple is a bit overwhelmed and shy, but we bet after going out with our volunteers, she will feel a whole lot better! Check back for updates on this sweet, young dog.



Mixed Breed ANGEL female, 3 years old and 66 pounds.

Pretty Angel found herself at the shelter with 3 of her housemates. Right now, she is shy and a bit worried. Angel lived in a home with seven other dogs! We'll be working with Angel, spending time with her and helping her feel more secure. Please check back soon for updates.

Fido Field Trip Update: On 6/15/19 I got to go out on the town with Billy! I loved riding in the car, Billy had to help me with loading up. He had a full day planned for us: We went to In and Out for lunch, then we went to the lake and the park. When it started to get warm We headed for the AC at Rainbow Ag. I even made a new friend while I was there and got a ton of love. I think that was my favorite part; getting to be loved on and snuggled. I cant wait to go out again!

The most striking thing for us in looking at the Fido Field Trip (FFT) photos is the marked difference between her "official" webiste photo and the FFT's ones. Angel came to the shelter with 7 siblings. She (like her siblings) was shy and nervous. Look at her now! Bill's FFT photo show us a dogs who is relaxed and so vey happy to be on an adventure! Special thanks go to our dedicated volunteer Billy for taking her oout for the day!

UPDATE FROM CASA DE LAURA, JULY 2019 Ruby continues to learn and blossom in foster care. She's maturing, so she's calming down. She's no longer bugging the other dogs to play, but when she does play, (which she loves to do), she's more appropriate. Her on-leash walking skills have greatly improved. She would do best in an active yet calm and consistent home. She wants to please, and she should be encouraged to continue to learn. THANK YOU LAURA! We've got new photos of our girl Ruby, hanging at the Casa de Laura, with Laura's dogs and Maya, another shelter guest, lucky enough to be under the loving care of Laura, one very special volunteer. check 'em out!

UPDATE FROM CASA DE LAURA! Ruby' been in foster care since 5.9.19, and lives with 6 other dogs. She’s a young, energetic dog, who loves to play hard with other dogs. She's learned sit, shake, lay down, no, come, go lay down, and knows her name. Ruby is perfecting walking on leash, loads up easily into a vehicle and rides well. She is crate trained, and almost housebroken. Ruby is kind of a goofball, and can get easily excited. One of her furry foster siblings was a young female about half Ruby’s size, who Ruby loved to wrestle with, not taking into account the other dog's small size. Ruby’s not a bully, just playful, and thinks everyone should want to play with her. When trying to engage a 12 y/o male dog in play who wasn’t interested, and corrected her, Ruby took the hint and walked off, leaving him alone. There's also a 4 y/o male with whom she plays hard, however, he doesn’t correct her, so she takes advantage of his sweet nature. I’ll call her and she will stop for a short while, but once I leave, she starts on him again, so she would do best with a dog who can stick up for itself without being aggressive. CHECK BACK SOON for photos of Ruby at CASA DE LAURA! Ruby loves attention, but can be a bit shy initially when meeting new people; however she warms up easily. She's learning good indoor manners, and can find a comfy dog bed to lay down on along with a few other dog siblings. She enjoys chew toys, and hasn’t gotten anything she shouldn’t be chewing on. When I’m not home, she’ll either be crated or spend time with another dog or 2 in the back yard. She’s a smart girl who learns fast with consistency. A training class would help her and her new family develop a tight bond, as well as help her be the best dog she can be.

Beautiful Ruby is a little bit shy, and a lotta sweet! When she met our most playful canine shelter guest, Harrison, Ruby wanted to join him in some down home doggie fun! Look here for updates as we get to know Ruby. Better still--come to the shelter and take this young girl for a walk!


Hello, my name is Hellen. I turned one this past January, and I'm trying to find my new forever home. I'm very sweet and love going to the dog park. I have lots of energy, I'm housetrained, and I get along with all dogs. I have not had the opportunity to meet any cats, so I've not formed an opinion about them. I am, however, a big proponent of cuddling, and I'm food motivated, which I've heard is a plus for training. I am spayed and up-to-date on all my vaccinations. If you would like to meet me, call 530-318-4786. Text or leave voicemail if I don’t answer!
