Wilford Brimley was found as a single tiny puppy running down a busy street covered in fleas, dehydrated and malnourished. He's a lovely young, soft scruffy boy who will be full of energy and love once he gets some food in his belly and a warm place to sleep, and people who love him.

We're looking to have him fostered for a bit, have some stability and protection, and love. He is a very sweet little guy.

Meet Jolly!

Jolly is lively, tail wagging Jolly boy, once he's out of his kennel he warms up quickly and is very friendly. He is a goofy, happy tail-wagger who likes to get and give kisses.

Jolly has medium energy and walks well on a leash with a harness. He needs more training but is so eager to please. He seems timid at first but he loves people and once he bonds, he will be your loyal forever friend. great Pyrs are Guardians and require space and animals, people and activity. They can be nocturnal and have a loud alarm bark to alert to threats to their “herd/pack/family” there is much to consider when adding a Pyr to a home. Adoption Fee:$550

Vanessa means Soft, and she is that! Veda is also a laid back version of a Husky, and on the smaller side at a bit under 40 pounds, but likely to get to 45 or so, as she is pretty thin. Veda walks easily on a leash, and is submissive and dog friendly. She is off to a wonderful foster home...more soon on this lovely girl as we get reports!

$450 adoption fee.

   Weight: Small (less than 30 pounds)
   Milo ID: 28408
   Current Location: Foster Care
These lovelies came from a back yard in the Salinas area, kept in separate cages - most of the time... though most of these are the kids from a litter seemingly born to Cindy Lou Who! They are all sweet, just needing more people time, leash training....

"A handsome McPoodle an adorable scruff - he comes from Salinas and says "You know I'm important, I have things to say, I'm scruffy not toughie, and eager to play!!" One of six Poos or Poodles they say, come by to meet us, come over and stay. We are one, we are two, we are a total of six...soon we'll have homes, just wait for the Pix!"

*Note - these pups are used to living with other dogs so a good adoption situation is either with a sibling or another dog in the home.

   Name: HEY
An Old Dog Named HEY!

   Breed: Shepherd - Pit Bull Terrier Mix
   Gender: Male
   Age: 12 yrs. 3 mo.  Birthday: 9/2006 (est)
   Weight: Large (60 - 90 pounds)
   Milo ID: 28403
   Current Location: Foster Care
Hey was found in Leona Canyon, part of the Anthony Chabot Regional Park in Oakland, on July 20th, 2018. He was lurking in the bushes near the creek. It took about an 1.5 hours from when I first saw him to when I was finally able to put a leash on him. I had 6 other dogs with me at the time, who were very helpful with getting him comfortable enough for me to get close to him. He liked the other dogs quite a lot, but was not so sure about me.

Ideal new home: The type of home that I believe would work best for him would have dog door access to a well fenced yard. He benefits from being able to let himself out during the night, as he can't always hold his bladder until morning. His ideal new owner would be able to take him to work or would work from home. So far he has not been great at being left home alone for more than an hour. If this isn't an option, I think he can do it, but would need yard access and not be able to get through/under/over the fence.

Behavior with other dogs: He is a fairly well behaved dog who gets along well with most other dogs, big or small. He is better with less hyper dogs, which he sometimes finds annoying, but it really depends on the dog, sometimes he likes them quite a lot. He has bitten one dog while with me, but it was a defensive bite. A Labrador attempted to guard a resource from him (something they were sniffing), attacking "Hey!", who bit back, tearing the Lab's lip. He sometimes growls at dogs when he first meets them if they meet face to face, but with supervision he has always been able to get over it pretty quickly and learn to coexist without conflict. He has met a few dogs he is open to playing with, but being on the older side of life, he doesn't have a whole lot of play energy in him. He does like the attention though.

Behavior with cats, people, children: So far he has been great around cats, but I've only seen him around 2 different cats. He pretty much ignores them. He is timid at first around new people, but warms up to them. He always allows people to pet him, but keeps his tail tucked until about 15-30min into the encounter. He has also been great with children, the youngest he has interacted with was 1.5yo. According to Leslie, he grew up around children. She has shown me pictures which prove this.

General Behavior: He gets anxious and restless. This usually manifests as panting, pacing, and drinking too much water. To keep him from doing this, I use a tie-down strapped to the leg of my couch (6' leash). This works well for him because he likes sleeping on my couch anyway. I'll let him loose after a couple hours, send him outside, let him drink a little, and then put him back for more nap time. At night he sleeps in this same spot on the couch, but I don't tie him down. Instead I leave my backdoor cracked so he can let himself out, and I take away all the water bowls. If I don't remove his access to water, he will drink all of it, and then sometimes pee on the couch, I assume by accident (it's not marking). So long as he doesn't have water at night, he doesn't "wet the bed". Milo will get him in for a urinalysis.

He gets anxious when crated, but has gotten much better about it. According to Leslie, he was "never confined". At first he would try to push his way out, and scraped up his snout a little. He doesn't do this anymore. Now he just pants, but can be in a crate for upwards of an hour. I've worked him up to eating in a crate, which has greatly improved his opinion of being crated. Unless I put food in the crate first, he won't go in willingly or on command, but will if I'm touching his collar. I usually don't have to apply a lot of pressure, I mostly just have to be in contact with his collar, and sometimes give a little tug towards the inside of the crate. He does not like riding in a crate in the car, but will do it, and will pant the whole time. He can however be left alone, uncrated in a parked car for up to a couple hours without a problem, but don't leave the windows open very much, if he thinks he can, he might try to climb out. If he doesn't think he can break out, he just curls up and sleeps. He's a funny old dog.

He also has some separation anxiety that kicks in if I leave him at home for more than an hour or so. This is a massive improvement compared to when I first found him, and he couldn't go more than a few minutes before freaking out. I suspect that some of his current anxiety comes from needing to pee and not being able to do so outside. When I do leave him home alone, I usually come back to find a puddle in the living room and the recycling can knocked over in the kitchen. So, it could be a lot worse.

His likes: He loves riding in the car and sticking his nose out the window. He really likes fetch and crunching on plush squeaky toys, but didn't show any interest in balls or toys until after his teeth were fixed. He plays old dog fetch, so, relatively short underhand groundball tosses. He really like

   Name: KARAT

   Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier Mix
   Gender: Male
   Age: 9 wks.  Birthday: 10/2018 (est)
   Weight: Medium (30 - 60 pounds)
   Milo ID: 28383
   Current Location: Foster Care
FOSTER UPDATE

Karat is the most mellow. He still does love to run and wrestle but his favorite thing is sleeping in your lap. He is more cautious than his siblings and can get a little frightened of things such as trash bags being opened. But he has started to gain confidence and with more positive reinforcement he will gain more confidence. He loves his people and can be vocal when he is without them, so another dog and/or further training will be necessary.

   Name: KIWI

   Breed: Labrador Retriever Mix
   Gender: Female
   Age: 1 yr. 7 mo.  Birthday: 5/2017 (est)
   Weight: Medium (30 - 60 pounds)
   Adoption Pending!
   Milo ID: 28381
   Current Location: Foster Care
FOSTER UPDATE: Kiwi is a sweetheart of a dog with a very gentle disposition. She has easily adjusted to our home and our family (mom, dad, 14 y.o. daughter and 11 y.o. son). She loves to snuggle up with someone, especially if she is receiving a pet or a scratch behind the ears. While she generally has done well meeting other people who are new to her, she has demonstrated mild trepidation around smaller children, especially boys (she backs away from them).

She shows curiosity and interest in other dogs, but doesn’t go out of her way to interact with them. When she arrived (less than a week ago), she wasn’t housebroken. We are now potty training her and she is making great progress (0-1 accident/day). Kiwi isn’t crate trained, but she enjoys spending time in an exercise pen, which we’ve made comfy and cozy with a bed, toys, and towels (and a tarp underneath, just in case). We have begun to leave her on her own in the pen for extended periods of time.

Kiwi walks well on a leash unless she is unsure about something she sees/hears and/or distracted in which case she stops in her tracks and needs to be coaxed to get going again. She isn’t a barker or mouthy and doesn't jump up. She’s quite calm and quiet inside and outside.

A loving home environment combined with basic obedience and socialization training as well as an established routine is all Kiwi needs to become the best companion ever!

*****

We can't decide what she is a mix of - we thought MAYBE Plott Hound - but - nah...the liver nose - and her size is which is pretty medium almost 50, but under. Soft eyes and a warm heart for sure.

OSCAR

   Breed: Dachshund - Fox Terrier Mix
   Gender: Male
   Age: 5 yrs. 2 mo.  Birthday: 10/2013 (est)
   Weight: Small (less than 30 pounds)
   Milo ID: 28378
   Current Location: Foster Care
Oscar is a dog that was apparently hit by a car in October, and sat at the shelter untreated for more than a month. We are getting him into our vets to see what is the damage to his leg... after all this time it is likely to need to be amputated, we'll see!

He's a cute smaller medium sized fellow, lots of spots and dots.... more soon after his trip to the vet!

As suspected, Oscar has badly broken bones, that have healed improperly. The injury could have been older than just before coming to the shelter....

We have learned that Oscar is neutered, and dog friendly... and we think okay with cats too... he’ll need the leg amputated, as soon as he’s good and healthy, though he is used to holding it up, he gets around fine that way, but has some discomfort - without the leg, that will be gone.

   Breed: Labrador Retriever - American Staffordshire Terrier Mix
   Gender: Female
   Age: 5 yrs. 4 mo.  Birthday: 8/2013 (est)

Merry Pitmas ! All of our pitties ( minus pups ) are free to good homes for the month of December !

FOSTER UPDATE: Froggy is a great dog that is quickly learning how to socialize well with other dogs and people. She is fully housebroke, well crate trained, and will walk on leash well unless she is scared or you let her sniff the grass. She is excellent with my cat and has very little to no prey drive, squirrels, cats, etc. outside don't interest her much, she just looks but doesn't respond in any other way.

She knows how to go in her crate on command, wait at open doors and is learning better leash training and basic obedience. She is low energy but greatly benefits from going on long walks, currently she goes on 3 mile runs, but definitely doesn't need them, and 1 to 2 mile walks in the evenings. She isn't high energy and would be happy to sit on the couch and cuddle all day but is also happy to go for walks and explore. She recently went to the beach for the first time and after being a little unsure of her surroundings for the first 15 min. She relaxed and LOVED it, she dug holes, played in the sand, rolled around, her tail was constantly wagging, she didn't want to leave, and she played and met with a number of dogs and saw horses which she didn't even blink an eye at them. **You can see pictures of her playing on the beach under More Photos**

She took a few days to be relaxed around my dog, but once she did, she looks to him for support outside or in when she's nervous or scared, and when she gets a chance she tries to play with him even when she's in her crate and he's outside. She needs time to live with new dogs as she can get snippy and scared growly or raise a lip but she can correct easily as long as you are consistent with correction, she's not super submissive all dogs. On leash she is excellent at meeting dogs, she is more insecure off leash in the home with new dogs off leash. She has not been grumpy or complained at all with my dog after living with him for 5 days. She is nervous and scared around men, although if they spend time with her on the couch or in a controlled environment she will warm up quickly and bond to them quite well as she did with one of my male friends.

Every day Froggy is getting better and better about cars, men, loud noises. She now doesn't flinch when cars drive by, she's still nervous around trucks but won't stop or pull, just moves over to me or my dog. I think in a few weeks in a home environment with basic obedience, recall training, new experiences and a well-developed routine, she will transform into the easiest, lovable, secure dog ever. She has NO anxiety about being left alone, in the crate and has NO mouthiness, doesn't jump up. She has only barked a few times which I quickly corrected. Otherwise, she's quite calm and quiet inside and outside.

Froggy came from the Chico area - we pulled her and four others to make room for fire victims. She couldn't be sweeter with people - though has a bit of difference towards some men.

$450 adoption fee.

*Foster Notes* "Poppy (aka Reginald) has been an absolute joy in our home! He is so incredibly affectionate and loves to snuggle. He is very curious and playful as well and loves his "cat tunnel" and a yarn ball toy that I made him. I have also trimmed his nails without too much wiggling. He acclimated so quickly to our household and we think he would do well in a home with lots of love and people/animals."

Poppy was surrendered to Milo after his family lost their home in the Camp Fires. He came to Milo with the 3 cats and 1 dog he lived with.
