Posted Breed: Havanese / Mixed (long coat). Stockton came from a hoarding situation and was seized along with other numerous dogs. He came to us basically feral but has made progress enough that we have deemed him ready for adoption to a special home. That home or family will need to take this boy to the next level, with patience, time and understanding. Most dogs who have not been socialized well at the proper age, will have lingering issues. Stockton's adoptive family must be willing to accept this but at the same time, be willing to train him to be the best that he can be. Stockton will need a quiet home with someone who is home most of the time and is willing to spend the time needed to hold him, gradually introduce him to walks in the neighborhood and new situations but also provide a quiet, stress free environment. Stockton would greatly benefit from another dog in the household who could "show him the ropes', so to speak. If you think you could provide this boy with the special care he needs please feel free to call our Executive Director, Janie Hopper at 530-276-9364 (evenings are best). Stockton is about 3 years old and 13 lbs. As with most rescue/shelter dogs, he or she may or may not be housebroken, or at the least need a readjustment /re-training period. If you are not able or willing to retrain a dog with housebreaking in a gentle, repetitious manner please DO NOT APPLY. NEW DOGS REQUIRE SPECIAL HANDLING, TIME and CARE. MAKE SURE YOU ARE WILLING TO MAKE THIS COMMITMENT BEFORE APPLYING. We require adopters to first fill out our adoption app online. You cannot proceed with the adoption without it. This application has been developed using over 25 years of experience. It helps the adopter and us to make only the beginning of a good match. WE DO NOT ADOPT OUR DOGS TO HOMES WITH UNALTERED PETS...NO EXCEPTIONS! WHY? CLICK ON SPAY/NEUTER ON THE LEFT HAND MENU. In order to adopt one of these wonderful pups please see the side menu under adoption info.

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: Löwchen. Caesar is a wonderful, unusual breed called a Lowchen (Lion Dog). Although he may not be purebred, he is very close. He is bright, happy, funny and social. Gets along great with other dogs; not sure about cats. Caesar recently went to an assisted living center on a visit, and was a perfect gentleman. Very calm, happy, and loving to be petted. Since Lowchens are not a common breed, we can only guess at Ceasar's story. Was picked up as a stray at an out of area shelter where no one came to claim him. Fortunately, the shelter did not euthanize him when he was not adopted (Shelter was being forced to euthanize for space) and he was sent to our rescue. Please read up on this unusual breed before adoption. Caesar is about 17 lbs., and is 2 years old.
