UPDATES: Our Happy Hunter is another wonderful lugnut of a dog. He was loads of fun during his photo shoot, playing fetch with a tennis ball. This guy LOVES to have fun, and his joyful personality is contagious.

Hunter spent some time with volunteer Billy, who reported: "What a great dog Hunter is! He is easy to leash and walks good. Pulls a little. Knows sit and loves to play with the tennis ball. He doesn’t always give it back willingly but will drop it. He is just a happy go lucky guy waiting for someone to find him."

Happy Hunter LOVES to chase a tennis ball. He's affectionate and adorable. During his evaluation, Hunter met Duke, a neutered male shelter guest, and did fine.

RUBY

Mixed Breed female, 2 years old and 55 pounds.

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!

FRED ASTAIRE

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

PHOTO SHOOT UPDATE: Fred Astaire entertained us during his photo session. We found him fun, funny, smart and engaging. We thought he might be part Border Collie. Fred is focused and loving. We think he might excel at obedience training, flyball or agility, or another form of fun-filled canine class.

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!

RUFFIO

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

UPDATE: This uber-handsome dog is a heart-stealer. We fell under his spell during his photo session. He was pretty easy to leash up and walk. In the play yard, Ruffio was happy, exuberant and wowed us with his SIT and SHAKE/HIGH 5! This big guy has a soft, gentle mouth and a very sweet personality.

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