Posted Breed: Terrier / Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). THIS IS YEAR 3 OF LIBBY IN RESCUE. Foster mom Linda says, "The happiest I have seen Libby Lou was three days after she had her damaged eye removed. Libby has been in rescue far to long. having been thru so much in her short life it is past time she find her forever home. Libby Lou was barely out of puppyhood before she had her own puppies. It breaks our hearts to have her passed by over and over at the adoption events. Hit by a car, patched up by a shelter vet, terribly thin and injured a few days later she popped out 4 puppies! The shelter volunteers were surprised if not shocked but thrilled to take the extra efforts to find a rescue willing to take her in. Whiskers, Tails and Ferals opened their arms and brought Libby Lou and her 4 pups to the Napa Valley. With time to ween her babies and recover from her injuries, Libby gained strength and trust in the Cassidy foster home. Now with her babies adopted, the surgery behind her, Libby feels the job as a mama is done. She nearly kicks up her paws she is so happy and feeling great! Libby made some beautiful puppies, worked hard to eat enough to keep them well fed and growing strong. Libby has strong work ethics, she must with her history. A bit protective she will bark at someone she doesn't know, just to make sure that new person knows she has her one eye on them. Doesn't take too long or too many treats to win her over. Kids? Well over 10 would be best. Cats? Absolutely loves to ignore them. She loves to play with dogs about her size but does very well with the giant male Pyrenees she lives with. Also loves the small backyard she has to run around in and adores her chewbones and those of every other dog that leaves their chew unattended for even a second. She likes to hide them under her bed or under the pillow on the sofa. I found 5 of them just tonight. To see Libby now, happy and feeling great makes me realize how much better she feels. She is ready to go! If you think Libby Lou would be the perfect dog to complete your family then email Linda at lbredfire@sbcglobal.net. Libby attends the Saturday adoptions at the Petco." This dog comes spayed/neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, dewormed, heartworm tested negative, and more with an adoption fee/donation to Whiskers, Tails and Ferals in Napa, CA.

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.

      Posted Breed: Corgi / Shepherd / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Linda (lbredfire@sbcglobal.net) for more information about this pet. Come meet Darby, the perfect size for kids!!! Loves people and other dogs, unsure of cats. plays gentle with the other smaller dogs. Well behaved and eager to please. Great in a crate, okay on a leash, and working on her potty skills. Loves chew toys and someone to play with. Darby would fit into a family where they want the dog to be a member of the family. She is well behaved in the house. Would love to sleep with her kid friends. Quiet and gentle. Darby is maybe 25 lbs. Fully grown. Hard not to fall in love with her! Darby is special! She was scheduled to be euthanized and the San Juaquin shelter. We saw her video and could not let that happen! While all the other dogs were barking wildly, Darby was sitting with her tail wagging. Just a nice girl looking for love. Check out the photo of "nap time" where she had just been on a long walk with the foster's kids. The kids were devastated she was going to a rescue, they loved her and wanted to keep her. Darby has great potential I feel. Eager to please she could be trained to be a companion, support dog for someone needing a best friend. No aggression at all! Just a silly girl.

      Posted Breed: Yorkshire Terrier Yorkie / Miniature Pinscher / Mixed (short coat). Alden is a tiny guy! Possibly a Yorkie/Chi mix and is probably 4-5 lbs. He is still a youngster, no issues but being a cutie. Alden is good with everything and everyone. I can just watch him for hours. Playful and a cuddlebug, you can't resist this face. Alden is good in a car and a crate. Has begun to get the idea of using potty pads. He has potential to be a companion dog. No issues, not snarky or rude at all. Perhaps he's too small for young kid, and will be best with older kids who understand he is not a toy. Come see this pup on Saturdays during adoption event hours (see our website).

He came in skinny and filthy, found as a stray by Animal Control. Now being a Napa boy he has cleaned up his act, bathed, has a new collar and a new harness, and Leo is ready to strut! Leo has been a quiet guy. Sweet, gives kisses and just wants to be with you. Snuggles like a teddy bear! Good in the crate. Doing great on housetraining!

      Posted Breed: Shih Tzu (medium coat). Shhhh!!!! Don't tell Patches he is blind! He just doesn't seem to know it. Little sweet Patches came from Southern CA. Matted so badly he would barely walk full of filth, he took some time and work to get pretty again. Living on the streets was not easy for this blind dog. He was skinny and in bad shape but still happy! Now that we have his damaged eye removed, his fur has grown in and he has adjusted to living in a home again, Patches is ready to start the next phase of his life. His blindness isn't really an issue as long as his owner does a little puppy proofing before hand. Patches loves people, is great with his foster dog buddies, especially Holly. If you would like to meet this wonderful dog please email Linda at LBredfire@sbcglobal.net. Patches doesn't attend every adoption event due to his foster's schedule. Check in to be sure.

      Location: Napa, CA
      Posted Breed: Poodle (Miniature) / Shih Tzu. Patches has been through a whole lot for one so young. He is blind but SHHHH!!! He doesn't know it! Silly, loving and a sweetheart. Contact Linda at LBredfire@sbcglobal.net for more info and an application. Video: https://www.facebook.com/betty.koufosconway/videos/1145368205556673 Our little darling is Holly. She is a best buddy to Patches. While not found with Patches or kenneled in the shelter with him they have developed quite a beautiful friendship. Holly is Patches' "seeing eyedog!" Video: https://www.facebook.com/betty.koufosconway/posts/1145384285555065 If interested in Holly email Linda at LBredfire@sbcglobal.net ------- This is a special request for two little dogs who have grown to love and depend on one another. Please read their stories. We know there is a special home together for them... Both were abandoned by their owners and left on the streets to die. Patches was severely neglected and Holly appears to have been abused. Patches' hair was so long he couldn't walk, he was found emaciated, covered in stickers, burrs, dirt clods and even maggots. With his eyes completely covered, he lost an eye. The eye socket even had stickers in it. Although doctors could find nothing wrong with his intact eye, he is unable to see. Last year Holly and Patches received a Christmas gift beyond their dreams; to have a home and one filled with love. A day after Christmas both dogs were both flown from Fresno to Napa to their new (Foster) home. When Holly got off the plane, she was so frightened she was covered in feces, urine, vomit and didn't stop shaking and whimpering for several days. Nor could she eat or drink. She was afraid of everyone. At night she would run through the house crying. In order to help her and Patches in their new environment, they slept together in a crate. Holly stopped crying and Patches didn't feel so alone in his dark world. Patches had to adjust living in a house. He had to learn not to pee in the house and to use a doggy door. Fortunately, since Holly was his companion, he would follow her everywhere and he learned to potty outside. Over time, the two learned it was okay to play, too. The two became best buddies, helping each other adjust to their new world. A world filled with love. Both dogs love being near their Foster mama and get along well with three of their Foster dog sisters. However, they think cats are for chasing. Although, both are loving and faithful companions, Holly is still frightened of children and some men. Therefore, she can only be placed in a home without children and cats. Ideally, Holly and Patches will find a home where they can stay together. They will flourish in an environment with lots of love, patience, and redirection when needed. They are both inside dogs and sleep well in a crate. In fact, Holly knows when it's bedtime and when she runs to bed Patches follows. They are very, very special and are looking for a very special forever home together. Holly is Poodle/terrier and Patches is a Shih Tzu/Llaso Apso. They both require regular grooming. Please email Linda at lbredfire@sbcglobal.net about meeting these two. This dog comes spayed/neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, dewormed, heartworm tested negative, and more with an adoption fee/donation to Whiskers, Tails and Ferals in Napa, CA.

      rescue
      Breed: Chihuahua
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Napa, CA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). Timmy Tiptoes is a young guy to have been through so much and still be smiling! At less than a year old he was abandoned. Hit by a car, leg healed wrong and ended up on the PTS list at the shelter. Well he is just one of those special guys that the volunteers decided were not gonna let him go without a fight! Timmy was a puppy for gosh sakes! He was posted for rescue only because of his injuries. The volunteers got Davis to agree to repair his leg if he could find rescue. The rest is obvious! We at Whisker's Tails and Ferals always have a sweet spot for one so in need of help, love and care. So Timmy got his surgery and came to us on a sunny Saturday. Timmy had 8 weeks of crate rest, lots of good food and a sort of quiet time to recover. Timmy had no idea why he didn't get to come out and run around with the other dogs! Now he is all better, leg is healed, he is scarred from the accident, but his attitude is sassy and he is definitely full of himself and in charge. Timmy is also the smallest dog here in my home. He bullies the Great Pyrenees Male here (he is very used to the bologna of a Chihuahua) and any other dog he feels he can get away with. Timmy still sleeps separately from the others as he now feels the bathroom with a baby gate is his, so I spoil him all I can. This makes him a little brat, which is my favorite kind of Chihuahua. Since there are so many, I figure there are so many people that like the little bratty kind too. Wanna meet Timmy Tiptoes? He is unique and very entertaining. He is also very loving and pretty obedient. See this pup on Saturdays during adoption event hours (see our website).
