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.

      Breed: Poodle (Standard)
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Pittsburg, CA
      Posted Breed: Poodle (Standard) (medium coat). Umbrella of Hope "Be Our Pet" 3 yr old, 32 lb GOING BLIND Standard Poodle NEUTERED MALE for ADOPTION ***To donate towards Tazo's care, please make a tax-deductible donation at www.paypal.me/UOH. His expenses are estimated to run us $1500 while he is in our care and our all-volunteer team needs donors to continue our work of saving senior, special needs and medically needy animals*** Tazo is a 3 yr old, 32 lb Standard Poodle. He is neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and free of parasites. He joins us from City of Manteca Animal Shelter via a partnership with Tailchaser Rescue Tazo is in the early stages of a disease called Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA) which causes eventual blindness. There is no treatment and no cure. It is common in poorly-bred poodles. He is in the VERY early stages and he can still see well in regular lighting. He has a little bit of trouble when the lights are dim. Eventually he will progressively go completely blind but HE WILL BE FINE. Dogs do very well with blindness especially if they are familiar with their environment already. He has had a definitive diagnosis by the ophthalmology resident and faculty at UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine. An adopter is more than welcomed to continue to have him evaluated by an ophthalmologist if they choose, however, it is not necessary to do so. His condition is not painful and does not require any treatment or monitoring. It just is what it is. He is a regular dog who acts like a regular dog and he only needs to be treated like a regular dog. He needs rules and boundaries and leadership and exercise and play and snuggles just like any regular dog. Tazo will require regular professional grooming every 6 weeks and the expense of such needs to be a part of any adopter's budget. It can run $100 or more. Tazo is perfectly potty trained (squats to pee, too). He is crate trained and walks well on a leash. He knows "sit" and "shake" and possibly some other commands but he has not shown us those yet. Tazo is great with other dogs and is fine with cats. Tazo has some minor (high-value) resource-guarding issues that may be related to his loss of sight. For this reason, we will only place him in a home with children over the age of 12. We also require his new family to speak with our behaviorist. It is very manageable and seems to be stress-related (poodles do not do change very well). He is spending a week at our trainer's place to work on this and he is doing very well. It is a non-issue if his family continues to work with him on it. Tazo is located in the SF Bay Area of CA and we adopt to people who live anywhere as long as they are willing to travel to us to adopt. We care about our animals enough that we want to meet their new people in person. It is unfair to send a sight-impaired, high-strung dog on a random unregulated transport to places unknown and we will not do that. If you feel that you are a good fit for Tazo, please send a detailed email to beourpet@gmail.com and let us know what you can offer him. #startastoryadopt #shelterpetlove #standardpoodle #blinddog GENERAL INFO: Housebroken?: Yes Crate Trained?: Yes Leash Trained?: Yes Rides Well in Car?: Yes Non-Shedding?: Yes Good with cats?: Yes, we think so Good with dogs?: Yes Qualifies for Seniors for Seniors?: No 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.

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). Umbrella of Hope "Be Our Pet" 10 yr old, 5 lb Chihuahua SPAYED FEMALE for ADOPTION Meet Miss Chai Tea -- donate towards her care at www.paypal.me/UOH Chai is a 10 yr old, 5 lb Chihuahua who joins us from San Jose Animal Care Center​ via San Jose Animal Advocates​ Chai is spayed, microchipped, vaccinated, is free of parasites and has had a dental cleaning with many (18!) extractions (thanks to Tails of a Shelter Vet​) and senior labwork* Don't be afraid to adopt a dog who is missing a lot of teeth. For one, it's 18 less teeth that may need future dental care. For two, as our vet says "If they ate WITH those rotting, painful teeth they will eat much better without them" and sure enough she eats dry food just fine!!! She is a pretty, pretty princess. She is a little shy at first but then just melts into anyone who will give her any attention. She is gentle and cuddly and LOVES blankets. She will use pee pads and she will potty outside but we do not yet know if she will *ask* to go. She is okay on the leash and great in a crate. She loves other dogs, is fine with cats and she should be fine with children who are more "tea party" than "superhero" types... she would likely be fine with superheros but she would not put a cape on and join in the game if that makes sense. Once the superheros tired out and wanted to watch Finding Dory​ (she loves Dory) then she would cuddle right up (under a blanket with them). She qualifies for our Seniors for Seniors program where dogs aged 5+ can be adopted by people aged 55+ for $5 (yes, five dollars). Normal adoption criteria apply and application required. For more information about adopting Miss Chai, please email us at beourpet@gmail.com #startastoryadopt #shelterpetlove #seniordogsrock #seniordogsrule #chihuahua *her thyroid levels were low in her bloodwork. Our vet feels she does not "look" hypothyroid (there are outward signs) and we are awaiting the results of an additional panel. If she is indeed hypothyroid, it is minor and she will need a pill once a day that costs $20 a YEAR (yes, that is less than $2 a month). We will update when we know more in a few days. We do not consider this "special needs" because how many people or dogs who have had adequate medical care do not end up on at least one pill in their senior years??? We are thankful it is the cheap one!!! The reason we have so many hypothyroid dogs is that we TEST for it. If all dogs over the age of 5 were tested, it is estimated that 20-25% would come back positive which is in line with what we see in our rescue population. It is treated with a very cheap pill that greatly improves their quality of life. #hypothyroidsunite GENERAL INFO: Housebroken?: Yes, we think so but does not ask Crate Trained?: Yes Leash Trained?: She is okay on leash Rides Well in Car?: Yes Non-Shedding?: No Good with cats?: Yes, we think so Good with dogs?: Yes Qualifies for Seniors for Seniors?: yes 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 10 Umbrella of Hope is a non-profit animal rescue based out of Pittsburg, CA that rescues animals off death row from local shelters.

      Breed: Maltese-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Pittsburg, CA
      Posted Breed: Maltese / Poodle (unknown type) / Mixed (medium coat). Umbrella of Hope "Be Our Pet" 2 yr old, 10 lb Maltese and Poodle SPAYED FEMALE for ADOPTION Introducing Bumble's Buddies Bumble's Buddies is a new program made possible by the generosity of the Anderson Family. Bumble's Buddies will allow there to be an open space in our rescue for an animal with a special needs diagnosis. Once that animal is ready for adoption, we will be pairing him/her with a person who shares a similar diagnosis in the hopes that they can support each other. Then we will save another one and repeat the process. Minmi is our first Bumble's Buddy. She will be looking for a home with a child or a veteran who has lost a limb like she has. While our animals are not trained as service pets and will likely never be given full public access, those chosen for the Bumble's Buddies program will likely be fine as Emotional Support Animals (ESAs) with physician support but we expect adopters to know the laws around this and follow them. We do not advocate for, nor adopt to, people who abuse service animal laws. ESA's do not have public access privileges -- they are ONLY protected as far as housing and air travel. ESAs are NOT service dogs. Minmi is a 2 yr old, 10 lb Maltese and Poodle Mix Spayed Female. She came to us from City of Manteca Animal Shelter back in July with a broken front leg. It was splinted and was healing perfectly. She went to a foster-to-adopt home and the adopter did not follow directions regarding her care and she broke her leg two more times. The second time, it was beyond saving. In December, she was surrendered back to us and she had her leg amputated (pictures with a cast were the "before" pictures) Minmi is sweet as a sugar honey pie and if that is not an adequate descriptor then we don't know what is. She LOVES everyone, loves being snuggled, loves being kissed and loves life in general. She is mostly housebroken and walks well on a leash. She will be in a crate but if she knows you are there, she will whine. She is very attached to her person/people. She gets along well with other dogs and is fine with cats. She adores children. Minmi will require a trip to a professional groomer every 6 weeks and adopters will need to be prepared for this expense (it is usually $50-$75 each time). She will also need a high-quality food and can never be allowed to become overweight due to missing a leg (not fair for her remaining shoulder). She MUST not be allowed to jump off of beds or couches because she will not have many options if she breaks her other front leg. She is non-shedding, but we cannot make any claims about whether or not she is hypoallergenic. Animals chosen for our Bumble's Buddies program will have their adoption fee waived. Normal adoption criteria apply and application required. If you know someone who would be a good match for Minmi, please share this post with them and they can contact us at beourpet@gmail.com. Donations towards Minmi's medical care in our program ($1000) can be made at www.paypal.me/UOH and are tax-deductible. Donations above this amount will be used to further the Bumble's Buddies program to pair dogs and people who share the same differences. #startastoryadopt #shelterpetlove #bumblesbuddies #maltipoo #tripoddog GENERAL INFO: Housebroken?: Yes, we think so Crate Trained?: Yes Leash Trained?: Yes Rides Well in Car?: Yes Non-Shedding?: Yes or very low shedding Good with cats?: Yes, we think so Good with dogs?: Yes Qualifies for Seniors for Seniors?: no 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 any age 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: Toy Fox Terrier / Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Umbrella of Hope "Be Our Pet" 3 yr old, 6 lb Toy Fox Terrier and Chihuahua Mix SPAYED FEMALE for ADOPTION Meet Miss Sencha Tea Sencha is a 3 yr old, 6 lb Toy Fox Terrier and Chihuahua Mix SPAYED FEMALE. She is also microchipped, vaccinated and free of parasites Sencha has lived with kids and other dogs and does not seem to be that interested in cats. She will walk on a leash and is GREAT in the crate. She is doing really well with her potty habits and it only took 4 days for her to learn the routine in her foster home. We expect a learning curve but she is eager to please and will get it down quickly. She is versatile in that she will use a potty pad or go outside when taken. In her past life, she was apparently made to stay in her crate almost all of the time. It IS her safe place, but she needs to be encouraged to spend time outside of it. Apparently, her foster mom has done a GREAT job of teaching her about LAPS. Sencha is shy around new people and her new owners need to understand that she is slow to warm. Once she loves you, she LOVES you but each new person is scary. She loves *her* kids, but needs proper introductions to new kids so busy homes without a place for her to retreat may not be the best set up. We will pay for dog training classes for a new adopter because learning and performing commands and being rewarded for doing so helps build a dog's confidence. Lots of walks helps this too as does a routine when meeting new people (the best treats ever that she only gets when meeting new people is helpful). Thanks to a generous sponsor -- Sencha's adoption fee has been sponsored to an approved home. To find out more about adoption, please email us at beourpet@gmail.com and tell us about yourself and your home. To donate towards Sencha's medical expenses and training classes while in our care (around $500) please make a tac-deductible donation at www.paypal.me/UOH.

      Posted Breed: Dachshund / Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Umbrella of Hope "Be Our Pet" 3 yr old, 5 lb Dachshund and Chihuahua Mix NEUTERED MALE for ADOPTION Meet Mr Earl Grey Tea! Donate towards Earl Grey's care at www.paypal.me/UOH Earl Grey joins us from San Jose Animal Care Center via San Jose Animal Advocates He is a 3 yr old, 5 lb Dachshund and Chihuahua Mix. He's a "squishy" dog without being at all fat. You just want to SQUISH him with love. And he was a shelter favorite and we have been told that he needs the most wonderful home on the planet (This is your cue to tag the most wonderful home on the planet). Thanks to the AMAZING Tails of a Shelter Vet he got allllllll fixed up and is good as new. He has a pretty cool story. He came into the shelter limping and x-rays revealed a badly healed broken pelvis (at some point he was likely hit by a car. We refer to this as boy-with-balls-not-thinking-with-brain disease and it is incredibly common). We regularly have dogs with this injury who need ONE side of their hips taken care of with a procedure called a Femoral Head Ostectomy or FHO. This is where the vet removes the ball of the femur (leg bone) that usually resides in the hip socket (can you picture it?) and then the muscles around the hip strengthen up and create a new socket and the dog is good as new. It is a pretty gnarly and intense orthopedic procedure and they did an outstanding job! Earl Grey needed this on BOTH sides <pause for effect> This is the first time we have ever had a dog that needed bilateral (both sides) FHO's at Umbrella of Hope. And he is doing GREAT! No more limping. The wonderful veterinary staff at the shelter probably made this dog more comfortable than he has been in a long time. They also neutered him which makes him the first dog in the history of Umbrella of Hope to have FOUR BALLS removed <let that sink in> hee hee... get it? Four balls? He is getting his teeth polished up today and will be ready for adoption next week. He is also microchipped and vaccinated and free of parasites.

      Posted Breed: Dachshund / Poodle (Miniature) / Mixed (long coat). Umbrella of Hope "Be Our Pet" 1 yr old, 10 lb Dachshund and Poodle Mix NEUTERED MALE for ADOPTION Meet Mr Stash Tea! Stash joins us from San Jose Animal Care Center and San Jose Animal Advocates Stash is a 1 yr old, 10 lb... and we are guessing here... Dachshund and Poodle Mix...??? Is that a doxidoodle? Another guess was a Schnauzer/Maltese... We really do not know. How about a Studmuffin Fluffypants? Stash was brought into the shelter as a stray that had been hit by a car. His left eye was actually hanging out of the socket due to the impact. Tails of a Shelter Vet actually replaced the eye and gave it a chance to heal (this is almost unheard of in shelter medicine...seriously, this medical team rocks it -- ROCKS IT). Unfortunately, they were unable to restore his sight and it was determined that it would be better for him to have it removed. And so they did :) Stash is also neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and free of parasites. He is low shedding (possibly non-shedding) but if you have allergies, you should probably take him on a coffee date and rub his fur on your face zerbert-style to see if your Claritin is working well enough to have him move in, we would be open to that as his breed mix is a guess. Our vet puts a bunch of slips of paper with breed names in her surgery cap and draws them out or something like that...it is not a perfect science. Seriously she sees us coming with one of these mutts and tries to run away. Luckily the OR suite is small and we can trap her easily between the surgery table and the ligasure until she gives us a guess. Stash is a bit shy but once he loves you, he LOOOVVVESSSSSS you. He needs practice being a dog... a little leash work and probably a little reinforcement on housetraining. He has not had any accidents with us, but we also have incredibly realistic expectations and do not set new dogs free in our homes and expect them to know our routine and rules within an hour. He is great in the crate and seems to be fine in the car. He likes other dogs and has been gentle with the cats he met at our vet clinic. As far as kids go, they are all different and we don't set hard and fast rules on ages. Some two year olds are great and we have met sadistic eleven year olds, so when we say that as a general guideline that we would recommend kids over the age of 10 for now it doesn't mean we are not flexible for the right situation. We will give preference to homes who have experience with shy dogs and/or who have a plan in place to take him through obedience training because learning commands and being rewarded for executing them is one of the best ways to build confidence in a shy dog. Make us believe that you read his description by referencing some of the points made when you email beourpet@gmail.com because otherwise we will just think you were drawn in by his cute face and expression and we won't know that you are a good fit for him. #startastoryadopt #shelterpetlove #doxipoo #doxidoodle #dachshundmix #poodlemix GENERAL INFO: Housebroken?: Yes, but likely needs reinforcement Crate Trained?: Yes Leash Trained?: Working on it Rides Well in Car?: Yes Non-Shedding?: Yes or low shedding Good with cats?: Yes, we think so Good with dogs?: Yes Qualifies for Seniors for Seniors?: No 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 10 Umbrella of Hope is a non-profit animal rescue based out of Pittsburg, CA that rescues animals off death row from local shelters.

      Sex: Male Male

      Location: Pittsburg, CA
      Posted Breed: Poodle (Toy) (medium coat). Umbrella of Hope "Be Our Pet" 12 yr old, 10 lb Toy Poodle NEUTERED MALE for ADOPTION There once was a lady who worked at a vet clinic -- our vet clinic. Sometimes she seemed a bit gruff, but that was just her New York upbringing shining through. She had a heart of gold and LOVED dogs. She was a huge fan and supporter of our mission and had quite a little pack of "ankle biters" (except the biting part) -- several of whom were adopted from Umbrella of Hope. Thora eventually retired and got to spend her days with all of her beloved dogs. Eventually, some of them passed on... and last week Thora joined them suddenly and unexpectedly. We are stunned and saddened and we will miss her greatly. Finn was one of her greatly loved dogs and he is in need of a new mom (or dad). Finnigan -- 12 yr old, 10 lb Toy Poodle NEUTERED MALE. He is great with other dogs, kids and cats. He is gentle and unassuming but he still plays like he is younger. He loves to go for walks, snuggle and will do ANYTHING to get petted. He is excellent at the groomer. He is blind due to cataracts but he navigates around quite well after the first day in a new place. Finn takes a thyroid pill twice daily (est cost $40/year) and needs to eat a low protein food to keep his kidneys healthy (age related changes that were caught early and should not affect his lifespan if kept on proper food). We use First Mate Senior formula that we purchase at Pet Food Express (or online). Any high-quality senior formula should work fine. We will provide the medication for life if needed. He can either eat a prescription kidney food which we can provide or he can eat a low-protein food OTC like FirstMate Pet Foods Senior/Weight Management Variety which is available at Pet Food Express.
