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 / Dachshund / Mixed (short coat). Umbrella of Hope "Be Our Pet" 8 yr old, 8 lb Dachshund and Chihuahua Mix Neutered Male Meet Mr San Benito County! San Benito joined us in September from Solano County Sheriff's Office Animal Care Division where he had been waiting months for a new home. This 8 yr old, 8 lb Dachshund and Chihuahua Mix Neutered Male is also vaccinated, microchipped, free of parasites and has had senior labwork. He had major dental work done that resulted in him needing all but 4 of his teeth pulled but he still eats dry food like a champ! He will require an inexpensive pill for his thyroid once a day ($40/year) and we will send him to his new home with an entire year's worth of medication. He is in great shape but we feel with good nutrition and TLC he will just blossom! His foster mom says he is a lover and is playful with other dogs. He is totally fine with cats and is great with children. He would be a great first-time dog and would fit in well with any sort of family arrangement. FROM BENNY: "My foster mom and I made a promise to each other, that she would let me spend time in her world, until I could find the perfect place in mine. So I am trying to make her proud of me and find that place for me. I am San Benito and my mom calls me Benny, I like the name and come to it all the time. I am an easy going boy who lives with many other dogs and cats and we all gt along, so if you have others in your life, I am willing to share. I am easy going and happy to sit near you as you rest, enjoy a good movie, even fold cloths, just like to have a blanket to crawl under. And even though I only have a couple teeth yet, my mom gets my dry food wet and I enjoy a good bowl of food. I am 8, but I love to go in the yard and run around, always searching for the perfect spot to be as my foster mom says "Good boy”. It makes me happy when I make her happy and will wag my tag? Do you want to see how happy you can make me, come visit me and spend some time with me, and I will make you happy too. Love, Benny “the good boy” To meet San Benito, please email beourpet@gmail.com for more information.

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Umbrella of Hope "Be Our Pet" 7 yr old, 7 lb Chihuahua Mix SPAYED FEMALE for ADOPTION Meet Miss Tortilla Soup of the many faces! Tortilla joins us from CONTRA COSTA ANIMAL SERVICES Tortilla is a 7 yr old, 7 lb Chihuahua Mix SPAYED FEMALE. She is spayed, microchipped, vaccinated, free of parasites and has had senior labwork (perfectly healthy) and a dental cleaning. It makes us really sad and angry when people dump their animals at the animal shelter and abandon them there. But, what really BAFFLES us is when a sweet, social, friendly and trained dog ends up there as a stray and is never claimed. How could a dog this cool not have someone looking for her? How could she go missing and them not move heaven and earth to find her? We mean... LOOK AT HER FACES!!!! She is hilarious! Tortilla is a lap dog and she marched right into her foster home and claimed the first lap she came to as if she had always been there. She is very confident in the fact that she does NOT belong in a crate and deserves to sleep in bed with you (she will crate nicely if you are leaving but if you are there she says 'good luck with that' and sings you the song of her people). Tortilla gets along really well with other dogs and does not bother cats. She loves people of all sizes, even the teacup variety. She appears to be housebroken and walks well on a leash. She qualifies for our Seniors for Seniors program for people 55+ (but is adoptable to anyone) If interested in adopting Tortilla, please email us at beourpet@gmail.com If you cannot adopt, but would like to make a tax-deductible donation to help sponsor her medical care (total of $350, any amount appreciated) you can do so online at www.paypal.me/UOH or email us at beourpet@gmail.com for a physical mailing address for a check.

      Italian Greyhound Dog For Adoption in Pittsburg, CA
    • Pug Dog For Adoption in Pittsburg, CA

      *Gumbo Soup ...

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Pug
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: Pittsburg, CA
      Posted Breed: Pug (short coat). Umbrella of Hope "Be Our Pet" 8-10 year old, 28 lb Pug NEUTERED MALE Although we expect that Gumbo will eventually be adoptable, he has some health issues (described below) where we feel he is best in foster care for a month or two. If you disagree, then please make a case for yourself and we will consider. We want people to see his story to make them aware of how dogs are thrown away and to solicit donations to help us with his recovery. And it all started because of a pug...an elderly broken pug. Meet Gumbo. Everyone in rescue has their form of "kryptonite"... a breed that makes you snap your head around like a Golden Retriever who has seen a squirrel... for Umbrella of Hope volunteer, Elea and her family, that breed is a pug. They own two that they have rescued and have made sure that I know they will foster **ANY** pug who needs them. As one of our best medical fosters, this certainly came in handy for this one. We are lucky to have some awesome pug rescues in this area that ensure the safety of every pug they come across, so while we have taken a few of them there isn't really a need for us to take them often. But, while driving our dog Joker down to the Central Valley last week for his Wings of Rescuetransport to his new family in Rhode Island, we got word of an older pug who could not walk at the Shafter Critters shelter (video in comments). Elea and her family made the two hour detour (on top of their 10 hour drive) to go get him and picked up an unexpected four more dogs to send to our transfer partners. Dropped off one... came home with five. The pug who we have named Gumbo is around 8 years old and a morbidly obese 28 lbs. He should be no more than 20 lbs and probably closer to 17-18 lbs. He could not walk at all. X-rays revealed a broken pelvis that has long since been like this. He likely was hit by a car, did not receive proper (or any) medical care, and then became obese because he had trouble moving around which made moving much at all impossible. Unlike Dr House, I don't like to call people "liars"... but whomever turned this dog into the Shafter Shelter as a stray dog that they found, likely found him in their living room. I have a really hard time believing that this dog moved much of anywhere. Our vet concurs. So to whomever had this sweet old man and let him go without veterinary care and then dumped him as a stray, we'd love to insult you further but are afraid we will not do as well as nature already did ***drops mic*** Gumbo is probably between 8-10 years old. He will be adoptable at some point. There is not much to do for his pelvis except for give him some relief with heavy pain medication until we can get his weight down. Our vet expects that with weight loss and daily pain meds, he will be able to walk as much as any elderly pug to go outside and do his business or meander around the yard to sniff dandelions. He is already walking a little after only one day on proper pain management. Once he has lost some weight he will get his teeth cleaned. He is already (surprisingly) neutered and his senior labwork looked great. He does have dry eye and will require eye drops twice daily to keep him comfortable. He will most certainly be looking for a compassionate adoption by someone who knows they can give him better than what he had before. He is a NICE dog as all pugs are and is very grateful and loving that he is clean, dry and getting his medical needs managed. He is a social boy and he has requested a wagon to help him get around places while he is recuperating. We have added it and a few other things to our Amazon Wish List for him. If you are able to purchase it for him (or Amazon gift cards for us to use towards the purchase) we would certainly appreciate it. Tax-deductible donations towards his ongoing care (expected to run around $1,000) can be made at www.paypal.me/UOH or email us at beourpet@gmail.com for a physical address to send a check.
