Posted Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier / Bulldog / Mixed (short coat). www.fieldofdreamsrescue.net Email; fieldofdreamsrescue1@gmail.com Beautiful and snuggly little guy! Full of wiggles and kisses! Housebroken, crated at night, doesn't jump on you, loves to snuggle, hanging out by your feet, loves car rides and playing in the yard. His little tail always wagging. :) Max instantly loves EVERY PERSON, he showers strangers as well as his family with affection, he is just too cute for words. Max has had a tough life, his face may have been kicked or hit by a car, its a little off center and he also favors one side on his hip. This does not hold him back, or seem to cause pain. He loves short walks, but mostly is a couch potato, eats great, just a happy soul that needs a happy ending. Max needs to be the only pet in a home. No cats or other dogs. He's great on walks, but doesn't want to share attention with fellow animals in the home. Max would make a excellent companion! Quiet, gentle, no drama in the house, accommodating, just a total joy. Always a smile on his face :) Adoption donation $200, includes his neuter, rabies, dhpp shot, worming, frontline, heartworm test, heartgard, microchip, Bordatella Vaccine. Appointments are available most days, dogs are held for SAME-DAY appointments only. Dogs are fostered in Vacaville, we do not transport or deliver dogs. All potential adopters must travel to vacaville to meet and potentially adopt dog. Please email fieldofdreamsrescue1@gmail.com to make your appointment or if you have any questions. :) *Please be ready to adopt when making a appt., we do not hold dogs while you get ready/go on vacation etc. Dogs remain available until they are adopted. If you aren't ready to potentially take a dog home, please contact us when you are. :) This helps keep our available appointments /time productive. We never say a dog is housebroken, a new routine, environment, food, all lends itself very well to having a accident in the home. Please take any new dog regardless of age and act as if they are not housebroken. Barking/Digging: Any dog can be or become a barker, or digger if the behavior is allowed and not corrected. A dog can act one way in one home and a completely different way in another. Whining: The first few days in a new home, a adopted dog can become VERY upset, anxious and vocal. Every home they go into, there is a adjustment period that will need to be understood. We suggest "test"runs when you leave the dog alone. Make is short segments first and increase the time. This way the dog knows you are always coming back. Make sure they have something to keep themselves occupied with while you are away. BITING: Please do not EVER put your face in a newly adopted dogs face or take food/toys our of their mouth or position. This is the surest and fastest way to get bit. Especially children. Adopting a dog takes time, patience and a commitment from his/hers new family, please be prepared for ALL the ups and downs when bringing home a wonderful dog in need.

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

Awesome buddy for another active dog, active family with older kids, a runner, hiker, camper, if you want to do it, he'll be ready to rock "n" roll!

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). www.fieldofdreamsrescue.net Email; fieldofdreamsrescue1@gmail.com Cute as a button! She is a very loving little girl that just wants to know who she belongs to. Quiet and distant when she meets new people, warms up with a happy smile, tail wag and affection. Best suited as a companion to a woman, but could make a wonderful addition to family with gentle quiet children (currently fostered in a home with 5 kids) single, or active senior. Sadly, she was owner surrendered into the shelter because of allergies, we have no other history on her, great off leash, hasn't had any accidents, but we advise families taking any new dog home to act as if they are not housebroken. She has a super short soft coat that makes her very warm cuddly, she loves being fussed over. She enjoys quieter children and will prefer woman. BAdoption donation $350, includes her spay, rabies, dhpp vaccine, bordatella vaccine, heartworm test, heartgard, frontline, microchip, worming, microchip and frontline. Email From her foster home: Hi Melissa! I've been meaning to send you an email, but all five kids got hit with the stomach flu, so it was crazy around here for a bit! Sweetie was so cute though.....cuddling with them and helping them feel better. She's doing great! She loves playing with our dog and they have become good buddies. She's eating well, playing hard, and getting lots of love and cuddles. When our kids are playing with our dog and Sweetie thinks our dog is getting too rough, Sweetie steps in and scolds her...it is so cute! I also plan on getting some pictures and video to you soon, now that we've all recovered! :) Hope you are doing well! Take Care, I just had to share this with you. Sassy loves all the kids but absolutely adores our three year old. Sassy will let her do anything!! Katelynn caries her around all day and sassy is never too far from her. There's a lot of love and patience in this sweet girl! Take care,

Roughly 4 years old, 12lbs, found as a stray, sadly like most shelter dogs, we have no history. Bobbie warms up to woman, shy and stand-off-ish with new men, will need time to get adjusted to a man in the home. Bobbie could make wonderful addition to a family with older kids, (13+, or that are familiar with terrier dogs), single, couple or active senior looking for a buddy! We think she is a wired haired Terrier/Schnauzer mix of some sort. Bobbie gets along with other dogs for the most part, but would be best as a only child or paired with a bigger dog (she likes to be bossy sometimes) ;) . Loves going on walks and exploring, aloof when she doesn't know you, but once she knows you are her people, she will love you until the end of time. She loves to cuddle, but isn't a couch cruiser, she will require walks, romps around the yard and play time.
