Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Umbrella of Hope "Be Our Pet" Pinto is a 8 Year old, 6lb, Chihuahua, SPAYED Female For ADOPTION! Meet Miss Pinto Vroom! As of 10/24/15 Pinto is considered to be a hospice dog due to a pituitary tumor. She will be completing a bucket list and can be followed on Facebook with the hashtag #pintosbucketlist Pinto has been with us since July 2015 when she came to us with a healing abscess on her head that our wonderful friends at CONTRA COSTA ANIMAL SERVICES took care of for us by placing a drain. It was very slow to heal and as we were monitoring some unusual findings on her bloodwork over the next few months, we incidentally found out that she had developed Cushing's Disease (which is treatable/manageable). She was put on a diet to help her lose some weight because she was having some issues with her back legs. She also has had a snotty nose that would get better and then get worse after many rounds of antibiotics and a culture. Her right eye has also been bulged out and that did not get better after her abscess resolved. Putting all of these pieces together, our vet x-rayed her head and is pretty confident that she has a brain tumor on her pituitary gland that is growing pretty fast. We have entered her into our hospice program. She is now no longer on a diet and can eat whatever she likes. We will be monitoring her quality of life and making sure that every day counts and when she is no longer having good days, we will let her go. Right now she is happy, active and HUNGRY. She has now decided to end her life in the best way possible... By starting and COMPLETING a Bucket List. If you are local (SF Bay Area of CA) and want to take her on a date, please email us at beourpet@gmail.com. If you are not local, please consider taking a hospice dog from your local shelter or rescue and giving them an amazing sunset. Donations towards Pinto's care or her legacy program, can be mailed to Umbrella of Hope, c/o Well Pet Vet Clinic, 4040 Railroad Ave, Pittsburg, CA 94565 OR our paypal address is beourpet@gmail.com. We also have an Amazon Wish List. Our tax ID number is 45-4103375 and all donations are tax-deductible. (Pinto is from Contra Costa Animal Services) Pinto is a 8 Year old, 6lb, Chihuahua, SPAYED Female For ADOPTION! She is also microchipped, vaccinated and free of parasites! Pinto was dropped off in the night drop off box at Contra Costa Animal services, when the shelter workers found her she was scared and hurt. She had an ENORMOUS abscess on the right side of her forehead. They drained it (you could even see her skull underneath it, poor baby!) and set about fixing her, all through out this she behaved like a model citizen regardless of how hurt she was! Thanks to the amazing work by Contra Costa Animal services she is healing well. She currently has stents holding her sore bits open, she looks like she's going to make a fantastic recovery very soon and is going to be back to her vivacious self soon. (UPDATE; We are happy to annouce she's made an amazing recovery and is slowly growing back some fuzz around her old injury) She's got an amazing personality, she has the cutest bossy little bark if she wants attention but quickly stops if you give her the eye! She seems very independent but also a lover of cuddles! She loves lounging in the garden on the grass and if you're lucky she'll show you Her famous grass wiggle! She even gives kisses if you tell her she's pretty. She also knows how to sit and is great with other dogs! If you think Pinto is better off in your arms, email us at beourpet@gmail.com or fill in an application online! Welcome to UOH Pinto!

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: Chihuahua (medium coat). Umbrella of Hope "Be Our Pet" 11 yr old, 14 lb Longhaired Chihuahua SPAYED FEMALE for ADOPTION Meet Miss Pigeon Vegas! Pigeon joins us from Antioch Animal Services and Antioch Animal Services Rescue Page. Pigeon is an 11 yr old, 14 lb Longhaired Chihuahua. She is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, free of parasites and has had her teeth cleaned and senior labwork. Pigeon was a stray that was microchipped! But, alas, when they contacted the registered owner it turns out that she was given away years ago and they did not have their information and did not want her back. The "new" owner never came for her and so we happily took her into our program :) Pigeon (also known as Pixie-Trixie-Foxy-Lady) is absolutely perfect. She loves people of all ages, other dogs and is fine with cats. She walks well on a leash, is crate trained and seems to be housebroken although we have not figured out her system yet. Pigeon is about 3-4 lbs overweight and is on a diet and exercise plan to get down to an ideal 10-11 lbs. She does need to take a pill once or twice a day for her thyroid which is about $5/month. We will send her to a new home with a one year supply. Being on this medicine, a diet food and getting some exercise should help her shed the weight quickly and healthily. If you would like to donate towards sending her with a year's worth of medication ($5/month or $60/year) please do so at www.paypal.me/UOH To inquire about adopting Pigeon, please email beourpet@gmail.com. We are located in the San Francisco East Bay Area of CA and we adopt to people anywhere as long as they come to us to adopt.

      Breed: Bernese Mountain Dog
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Bernese Mountain Dog (long coat). Umbrella of Hope "Be Our Pet" 7 yr old, 120 lb Bernese Mountain Dog -- HOSPICE ***Schivo is in his forever foster-hospice ("fospice") home and he will not be moved out of it for any reason. He is listed in an effort to bring awareness to the need for hospice foster homes as well as to solicit donations from Berner lovers for his care. Donations can be made online at www.paypal.me/UOH and are tax-deductible Tax ID # 45-4103375 UPDATE 8/15/2017 -- Schivo has passed away - details below*** Welcome our newest hospice dog, Schivo*. Schivo comes to us from San Jose Animal Care Center via San Jose Animal Advocates and Tails of a Shelter Vet Schivo is a 7 yr old, 120 lb Bernese Mountain Dog. Schivo was purchased as a puppy from a breeder and lived his 7 years being the loyal friend to his family until they did the ultimate betrayal and dumped him at the shelter to be euthanized. He gave them seven years of love and they threw him away. Threw him away like trash. Why? Well, they dumped Schivo at the shelter because he "had cancer" and "wasn't eating"... well, we know the not eating part was a lie because he hasn't stopped eating since he got to his forever foster home. As far as the cancer, well... we have not been able to track down any vet records that prove this as they were not surrendered with him. We have a hard time believing that "metastatic splenic histocytic sarcoma" just rolled off the tip of the tongue of the people dumping him but we also have a hard time believing that anyone who would spend the kind of money to have cancer that specifically diagnosed would do their loyal, loving, HAPPY dog the disgrace of dumping him at a shelter to be euthanized. Had his quality of life deteriorated to the point where he needed to be euthanized, the diagnosing veterinarian should have had zero issues with helping Schivo cross the bridge. But here we are. And there is not a nice way of cushioning what they did or why they did it. We were arranging the pickup of a 16 yr old chihuahua (to be introduced tomorrow) and we were asked if we possibly had room for him. Well, it just so happens that a good friend of Umbrella of Hope has a Berner of her own (see Elena the Berner in picture number 4 next to Schivo). And she just so happened to be able to go pick up Schivo and the chihuahua at the shelter. And so here we are. So, Schivo is safe with Elena, her mom and the rest of the pack and he will be well taken care of whether that be for one week or one year. He is fostered-hospiced-adopted into Casa Elena. But, it turns out that 120 lb dogs eat a LOT of food. And need a lot of supplies, toys, treats, beds and grooming. And take large amounts of pain meds for their bad hips. We also may have to pursue some diagnostics if we cannot track down any medical records that show that Schivo does indeed have cancer. And if he does have cancer, we will need to be able to provide him with excellent comfort care and end of life services when that time arises (with dignity AT his foster home TYVM). So, any donations that you want to point our way can be sent to us several ways and will be put to GOOD use. You can point tangible supply donations from our Amazon Wish List http://a.co/g0gahAc or you can make a monetary donation (put in memo "For Schivo") at www.paypal.me/UOH or you can mail a check to our attention to 4040 Railroad Blvd, Pittsburg, CA 94565. All donations are tax-deductible as allowed by law and our Tax ID is 45-4103375. *At Umbrella of Hope, we strongly believe in the motto of "New Life; New Name"... Schivo responds nicely to the name we gave him and has put his old life and old name behind him. We will not give his old owners the dignity of posting it as he has seemed to have forgotten both it and them. #startastoryadopt #shelterpetlove #bernesemountaindog #berner UPDATE: Farewell, Schivo... 'As I stand on the mountaintop, the great bird approaches. He is small in my sight, but grows larger on approach until I am blessed with the full sight of his graceful wings, proud countenance and good company. All too quickly, he grows small again on the horizon and disappears from view. And I call out, "Look, there. He's gone." Gone from my sight, that is all. His diminished size is in me, not in him. Because there are other mountaintops beyond me. And at the precise moment when I note the great bird's departure from my view, I know there are new eyes taking up the sight of him. And fresh voices calling out, "Here he comes!" '* Thank you, sweet Schivo, for giving us the beauty of your presence and allowing us to give you back the dignity that was taken from you. You gave us more than we could ever give you in return. Say hello to our many friends who have gone before you and wait for us. We will miss you, forever. Although our veterinarians were never able to find any signs of cancer in Schivo, he did have horrific hips and was having extreme difficulty in walking. We had reached the point where multiple veterinarians were struggling to manage his pain levels and as of Monday he had lost the ability to stand. We were unable to watch him suffer any longer. Please send your thoughts towards his foster/hospice mom, Sarah. She slept on the floor with him the last two weeks and according to her he made an amazing "little spoon". She is hurting this morning because she loved him like her own and they bonded greatly in the short time they were together. Your donations made it possible for him to have an orthopedic bed, gripper socks and mats, vet care, super strength pain medication in incredibly large doses, the best food ever and he was able to exit this world in his home beside his mom as we had a veterinarian come to them to help him pass. (This was after a day of several gourmet hamburgers and after eating a plate of steak, potato chips and chocolate as his last meal**). Memorial donations can be made at www.paypal.me/UOH and will be used towards the care of future hospice animals. *The exact author of the poem is unknown. It is most certainly based on A Parable of Immortality by Henry Van Dyke and a similar poem was read by the character of Dr Garrett Macy on the TV show Crossing Jordan. We are unsure where this exact version came from but do not take any credit for it's wording. **Dogs should not eat steak, potato chips or chocolate unless it is their last meal on Earth, and then all bets are off.

      Posted Breed: Cocker Spaniel / Beagle / Mixed (medium coat). Umbrella of Hope "Be Our Pet" 10 yr old, 17 lb Cocker Spaniel Mix SPAYED FEMALE for ADOPTION Meet Miss Grandma Mae Kibble Grandma Mae is named after Grandma Mae's Country Naturals Dog Food. Grandma Mae is a 10 yr old, 18 lb Cocker Spaniel, Beagle and Dachshund Mix SPAYED FEMALE. She was brought into our veterinary clinic as a stray found on a busy street near the clinic. Her microchip was registered to people with Colorado numbers and they did not answer or return calls from the vet team. We asked Fido Alert - East Contra Costa County to help us find anyone who knew what had happened to her but no one came forward. She was stinky, covered in fleas, missing over 1/2 of her hair, had the LONGEST toenails we had ever seen (pics in comments) and was scratching herself so much she was bleeding. She has dry-eye so bad that her eyeballs had scabs. She was starving and gulped down 4 bowls of food in less than 24 hours. Due to local stray laws, she was required to go to the shelter for a stray hold and CONTRA COSTA ANIMAL SERVICES started her medical treatment while they tried to track down an owner. It took over 10 days for the owner to respond and they said they had given her away previously and just wanted her euthanized so we were more than happy to go get her and bring her into our program. She is being fostered by a wonderful RVT who had previously fostered (and adopted) another one of our skin issue dogs -- Mighty Moe. She is on over a dozen different medications to try to ease her itching, soothe her skin and start the healing process. We hope she will be feeling better really soon so that we can get some lumps removed and her teeth cleaned. UPDATE 4/30/17: She has grown her hair back and is only on eyedrops and two other medicines every day which she will eventually not need in a month or two. Her lumps will be removed on 5/15/17 and she will then be available for adoption. She apparently loves "soft beds and cuddles" and has a huge appetite but takes food very gently. She already knows her name, follows her foster mom around and whines and jumps up to be petted. She is a beautiful soul and she deserves so much better than what she was given and we want to make sure she knows she is a princess. We are an ALL VOLUNTEER team and we need donations to be able to continue to provide this level of care to senior, special needs, medically needy, hospice, shy and plain animals who are at risk of euthanasia in shelters. Help us save more dogs like Grandma Mae.

She does NOT like small children to grab at her (we do not blame her). She does not attack babies and as long as she is given a respite to retreat to when small children are around she will be fine if there are occasional young children that visit but she should probably live with people who do not have kids or who have kids of the pre-teen or above variety.

      Breed: Chiweenie

      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Dachshund / Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Umbrella of Hope "Be Our Pet" 2 yr old, 9 lb Dachshund and Chihuahua Mix HOSPICE DOG Sometimes life just isn't fair... Costata is short for the Latin name of the seashell called the Cyrtopleura costata -- the Angel Wing shell. She got that name because this 2 year old, 9 lb Dachshund and Chihuahua Mix is the newest addition to our Umbrella of Hope Hospice Program Costata was found as a stray and brought to San Jose Animal Care Center and it was found that she had an ulcerated mass on her abdomen. Tails of a Shelter Vet treated her, removed the mass and sent it off for biopsy. And it was bad. The mass came back as a Grade III carcinosarcoma. A plea was put out via San Jose Animal Advocates for a rescue to take her for hospice care. This rare tumor usually affects older dogs so our girl drew an unlucky card. This cancer is aggressive and metastasizes quickly and our veterinarian thinks she has a prognosis of 3-4 months. Chemotherapy, while an option in theory, is prohibitively expensive and (more importantly) would only offer another 2-3 months and much of that would be spent in medical appointments and not living life and being a dog. So it is not an option that we are going to pursue for her. We have the technology of extending life... sometimes at any cost, but the hard part is having the wisdom to know when enough is enough. Death is not always the enemy -- inhumanity is -- and we will provide her with love and comfort care until she tells us it is her time to go and we will humanely release her. NOTE: We have an extensive veterinary team in place and trust them implicitly so we are NOT looking for medical advice. While we appreciate that things like turmeric, coconut oil, CBD oil and herbal remedies have worked for other people/pets we are going to stick with the advice of her medical team and what they recommend for her comfort. So, Costata, our Angel Wings girl will be 'fospiced' (foster-hospice) and given a really good life for the time she has left and she will be in a home, with a family and treated as their own. She is happy, sweet and is not in any pain. She will be closely monitored by our veterinary team who will advise us of the best decisions for her. Once we get to know her personality better, she may have some bucket list adventures that she will post about on Pinto's Bucket List . She is being fospiced in the SF Bay Area of California (East Bay). If she has the kind of temperament that would be conducive to going out on "dates" with people who want to take her to the beach or to a park or to a dog-friendly restaurant we will post about finding people to do that with her. To donate towards her medical and comfort care, please do so at www.paypal.me/UOH. Once we get to know her better, she may come up with her own Amazon Wish List of things that make her happy.

      Posted Breed: Bichon Frise / Maltese / Mixed (medium coat). Umbrella of Hope "Be Our Pet" 14 yr old, 16 lb Bichon Mix NEUTERED MALE for ADOPTION Meet Mr Periwinkle Seashell! Periwinkle joins us from San Jose Animal Care Center and San Jose Animal Advocates and was treated there by Tails of a Shelter Vet Periwinkle is a 14 yr old, 16 lb Bichon Frise Mix (Maltese? Poodle?). He was previously neutered and has been microchipped and vaccinated. He has also had senior labwork. He had to go immediately to the groomer for a shave down when he got here (like they literally fit us in on an emergency basis) as his coat had been neglected for months or longer and was pulling on his skin and causing him pain. He was dumped at the shelter because of a "divorce" and we think that is the most shameful and ridiculous thing ever. HE wasn't the cause of a marriage breaking up but he was the victim. He was purchased as a pup 14 years ago and then dumped because neither adult wanted to take responsibility for him. For shame. It wasn't just Periwinkle's coat that had been neglected for so long... his mouth is HORRIFIC and he will be getting a dental cleaning (with extractions) on Friday 7/21/17. While he is under, he will be getting his two "cherry eyes" repaired. (Cherry eye is a cosmetic issue with Periwinkle as it is most of the time, but since he will be under anesthesia for the dental, we will have it taken care of as well). Periwinkle is a NICE dog who loves to go on walks. He gets along well with other dogs, seems to ignore cats and would be fine with children. He appears to be housebroken and crate trained and he is EXCELLENT on the leash. Like all non-shedding dogs, he will require regular trips to the groomer every 6-8 weeks to ensure that he stays mat-free (and pain free). Periwinkle is ADOPTABLE and is awaiting his retirement home. He is located in the SF Bay Area of CA and we will entertain REASONABLE adoption inquiries out of the area. However, do not ask us to ship him to you like he is an Amazon package. To inquire about adoption, please email us at beourpet@gmail.com To contribute towards Periwinkle's medical expenses while in our care, please do so online at www.paypal.me/UOH.

Umbrella of Hope "Be Our Pet" 12 yr old, 3 lb Chihuahua NEUTERED MALE for ADOPTION Meet Mr Spindle Seashell Spindle is a 12 yr old, 3 lb Chihuahua NEUTERED MALE. He is also microchipped, vaccinated, free of parasites and has had a dental cleaning (with extractions), senior labwork and an echocardiogram. He comes to us from San Jose Animal Care Center via San Jose Animal Advocates and Tails of a Shelter Vet Spindle is INCREDIBLY loving and sweet and wants nothing more than to be cuddled and loved and hugged and squeezed and doted upon. He ADORES people of all ages. Spindle loves to go on walks (excellent on leash) and car rides, does well in a crate (although he will bark if he hears you). It is hard to tell if he is housebroken so we will say probably with supervision. He gets along with other animals nicely. Spindle has early stage heart disease and hypothyroidism and they are currently controlled with VERY INEXPENSIVE medication (less than $10/month total). Would anyone be willing to sponsor a month of Spindle's medication ($10) to make him more adoptable? We would love to send him home with a year of medication covered. If so, please donate at www.paypal.me/UOH and specify that it is for Spindle's medication. We will update in the comments as we get closer to our goal. if you are interested in adopting Spindle, please email us at beourpet@gmail.com Spindle is located in the SF Bay Area of CA and we welcome adopters from anywhere but we do not drop ship our dogs as if we were Amazon Prime. Reasonable requests for out of area adoptions will be accommodated if the adopter is willing to do some work and be a part of the process.

Umbrella of Hope "Be Our Pet" 14 yr old, 12 lb Toy Poodle SPAYED FEMALE for ADOPTION Meet Miss Bubble Seashell Bubble is a 14 yr old, 12 lb Toy Poodle SPAYED FEMALE. She is also microchipped, vaccinated, free of parasites and has had a dental cleaning and senior labwork. Bubble comes to us from our friends at Encina Veterinary Hospital where she was taken as a surrender by a staff member when her owner brought her in for euthanasia for "being old" Bubble is a DOLL and she loves people of all ages and she loves to eat. She walks well on a leash and is crate trained. She LOVES riding in the car. Bubble does need a little reinforcement in the housetraining area but is doing really well at her foster home and just needs consistency. Bubble needs to eat a low-fat food because she has higher-than-normal triglycerides. Unlike in humans, high triglycerides in dogs does not generally lead to heart disease and is almost always controlled by diet when the levels are like Bubble's. (If they were ten times higher than they are, she would take medication for it). There are both prescription and non-prescription diets that can be used. She is currently eating FirstMate Pet Foods Senior variety which is low fat. She can have regular treats and is otherwise unrestricted. She has no other obvious health concerns. Bubble is fostered in the SF Bay Area of CA and we welcome out of area adopters who travel to us to adopt. We require you to be a part of the process and be willing to work with us to do the adoption. If your expectation is that we deliver her to your doorstep seven states away then we will point you towards a stuffed dog on Amazon instead.

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). Umbrella of Hope "Be Our Pet" 1 yr old, 4 lb Chihuahua SPAYED FEMALE for ADOPTION Meet Miss Rockruff Pokemon Rockruff joins us from San Jose Animal Care Center and San Jose Animal Advocates where she was treated by Tails of a Shelter Vet Rockruff is a 1 yr old, 4 lb Chihuahua. She will be spayed, microchipped, vaccinated and is free of parasites. Rockruff is SUPER SHY and timid. She is terrified of people that she does not know. Once she knows you, she does not want to leave your lap and she loves to be carried in your arms. Rockruff needs a quiet home that is patient and understanding. She isn't going to be a "take everywhere" dog where people are man-handling her because she is so little and cute. She is NOT a plaything for children and right now we are rating her for homes with quiet children over the age of 12 (this could change as we get to know her better). It is possible that with love and stability, she could turn into a dog who loves strangers but that is going to take time, patience and homework. Currently we would recommend that she be given her own space (room, crate etc) when new people are over where she can decompress as she is TERRIFIED of them. She will be INCREDIBLY bonded with people that she knows and trusts and will be a velcro dog with them. The scariness of strangers will likely depend on how much desensitization that is done with her by her adopter (we have started it and are happy to explain the technique to a potential adopter). Rockruff is not leash trained but we are working on that. She is pee pad trained in a small area, but she will not ask to go out (she will potty outside if taken). She LOVES the crate (not as much as the lap) and views it as a safe space. She is quiet on car rides in the crate. To inquire about adoption, please email beourpet@gmail.com #adoptable #startastoryadopt #shelterpetlove GENERAL INFO: Housebroken?: Working on it. Very good with pee pads Crate Trained?: Yes Leash Trained?: Working on it Rides Well in Car?: Yes Non-Shedding?: No Good with cats?: Yes, we think so Good with dogs?: Yes Qualifies for Seniors for Seniors?: Not really but since a quiet home would be beneficial, make a case for it and we can consider Umbrella of Hope does not have any strict rules on ages of children because all children are different, but our best approximation is that this animal would do best with children over the age of 12 (pretty firm on this but if your child is a unicorn who has experience with tiny SHY dogs, feel free to email) Umbrella of Hope is a non-profit animal rescue based out of Pittsburg, CA that rescues animals off death row from local shelters.

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Umbrella of Hope "Be Our Pet" Pinto is a 8 Year old, 6lb, Chihuahua, SPAYED Female For ADOPTION! Meet Miss Pinto Vroom! As of 10/24/15 Pinto is considered to be a hospice dog due to a pituitary tumor. She will be completing a bucket list and can be followed on Facebook with the hashtag #pintosbucketlist Pinto has been with us since July 2015 when she came to us with a healing abscess on her head that our wonderful friends at CONTRA COSTA ANIMAL SERVICES took care of for us by placing a drain. It was very slow to heal and as we were monitoring some unusual findings on her bloodwork over the next few months, we incidentally found out that she had developed Cushing's Disease (which is treatable/manageable). She was put on a diet to help her lose some weight because she was having some issues with her back legs. She also has had a snotty nose that would get better and then get worse after many rounds of antibiotics and a culture. Her right eye has also been bulged out and that did not get better after her abscess resolved. Putting all of these pieces together, our vet x-rayed her head and is pretty confident that she has a brain tumor on her pituitary gland that is growing pretty fast. We have entered her into our hospice program. She is now no longer on a diet and can eat whatever she likes. We will be monitoring her quality of life and making sure that every day counts and when she is no longer having good days, we will let her go. Right now she is happy, active and HUNGRY. She has now decided to end her life in the best way possible... By starting and COMPLETING a Bucket List. If you are local (SF Bay Area of CA) and want to take her on a date, please email us at beourpet@gmail.com. If you are not local, please consider taking a hospice dog from your local shelter or rescue and giving them an amazing sunset. Donations towards Pinto's care or her legacy program, can be mailed to Umbrella of Hope, c/o Well Pet Vet Clinic, 4040 Railroad Ave, Pittsburg, CA 94565 OR our paypal address is beourpet@gmail.com.

(Pinto is from Contra Costa Animal Services) Pinto is a 8 Year old, 6lb, Chihuahua, SPAYED Female For ADOPTION! She is also microchipped, vaccinated and free of parasites! Pinto was dropped off in the night drop off box at Contra Costa Animal services, when the shelter workers found her she was scared and hurt. She had an ENORMOUS abscess on the right side of her forehead. They drained it (you could even see her skull underneath it, poor baby!) and set about fixing her, all through out this she behaved like a model citizen regardless of how hurt she was! Thanks to the amazing work by Contra Costa Animal services she is healing well. She currently has stents holding her sore bits open, she looks like she's going to make a fantastic recovery very soon and is going to be back to her vivacious self soon. (UPDATE; We are happy to annouce she's made an amazing recovery and is slowly growing back some fuzz around her old injury) She's got an amazing personality, she has the cutest bossy little bark if she wants attention but quickly stops if you give her the eye! She seems very independent but also a lover of cuddles! She loves lounging in the garden on the grass and if you're lucky she'll show you Her famous grass wiggle! She even gives kisses if you tell her she's pretty. She also knows how to sit and is great with other dogs!

      Posted Breed: Miniature Pinscher (short coat). Umbrella of Hope "Be Our Pet" 7 yr old, 10 lb Miniature Pinscher SPAYED FEMALE for ADOPTION/HOSPICE Meet Miss Eulima Seashell :) She is an adoptable hospice dog. There is no fee to adopt her and we will take care of her comfort and end of life care for any local adopter. Eulima joined us several weeks ago but we had to wait on some biopsies before we knew her status. Eulima is a Miniature Pinscher who is around 7 years old and 10 lbs. She is happy and loving and sweet and good. She gets along with everyone -- cat and dog -- and is rated for all ages of people. Eulima comes to us from Antioch Animal Services where she was a stray that went unclaimed. She had a MULTITUDE of breast tumors that were removed when our vet spayed her. One was a skin tag. Many were just cysts. But one was a malignant adenocarcinoma. What does this mean? Well... she isn't dying but her life is likely to be limited because of the cancer. This was 100% preventable had she been spayed before her first heat. She is looking for a special home who will welcome her and cherish her and make her life REALLY good for whatever time she has left. Her lungs are clear and her lymph nodes are too so she likely has at least a year, maybe more. Umbrella of Hope will cover her comfort medications needed to keep her happy when that time comes and we will cover her end of life expenses at our veterinarian. She just needs someone to love her and give her a home. You would not know that she was sick. She is a happy-happy-bouncy-bouncy that is full of zest and loves her life and her foster home. Eulima's medication and monitoring will cost Umbrella of Hope around $20/month. Her surgery, dental, labwork and biopsy have already run us around $800. If you cannot adopt her, a donation to help us with her and with other dogs like her allows our all-volunteer team to continue doing this work in the community. Tax-deductible donations can be made online at www.paypal.me/UOH(please specify that it is for Eulima).
