Posted Breed: Mastiff / Mixed (medium coat). Hello my name is Chunky! I am a hunk of love when it comes to my personality. I am a year young, full of energy and spunk, but not too hyper to listen. I thrive with a leader, and do well with those that can teach me the do’s and don’ts of society. I came to Kate’s rescue when I was very young, about 8 weeks of age. My previous owners had dumped me in a field and left me for dead! I had a terrible skin condition that nearly killed me, and made me less than appealing in appearance. But Kate’s found me and took me in. The rescue director personally nursed me back to health in her home and I grew like a weed! I love her dearly, but I dream of the day I find a couch of my own with a family I do not have to share with other foster siblings. I have been looking for a year for my family, with no such luck. I am a handsome boy, can’t you tell?! I weight over 70 pounds with a stocky body that just adds to my appeal. I am fostered in a home with other dogs of all sizes, and even cats. For the last year I have been fine with them but recently my behaviors have changed. Due to this I would do better in a home with no cats, or smaller dogs, and only big dogs like me. I would love to have a fur sibling close to my size and age to play with. A calmer male or even better a female would be ideal. I love calmer kids, given I have been in foster so long I am not familiar with anything outside of my foster home and scare very easily. Older children of 7 and up that understand I might get scared and bark are recommended, if any at all. I do great with them, just might scare them if they scare me. I am potty trained, I know better than to go in the house. I love to sleep in the bed if you let me, and cuddle all night long. I love to go for walks, and I walk perfectly on a leash. I am a bit timid in new places alone, but with a furry companion or a human to let me know it is ok I do just fine. I behave very well in the car, but do not like visiting new areas currently. Though once I am used to traveling and learn it is safe that could change. I am neutered, up to date on all my vaccinations and microchiped. My ideal human would be a female, I am a bit timid with men and quick movements. I am used to my fosters home and routines so anything new makes me very unsure. I am not a biter when I am scared, I bark and try to run away, but if cornered and forced to confront something scary I might bite. I need a human that will be my service human, to help my anxiety and teach me the world outside of my foster home bubble is not as scary as it seems. My human must have patience with me. Yelling scares me, and if you scare me I do not want to come to you. So lots of soft calm tones and hugging to help me feel comfortable is needed. I would make an amazing companion animal for a woman living on her own. I am being babysat on a farm, and it is too much for me out here. So city living might be best where I cannot see through my fence at the scary world. Wont you please help me find my forever home? If you think I might fit your family please contact this page, or Kate’s Rescue for Animals directly and be sure to tell them Chunky sent you!

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.

I need a human comfortable with leading me when it's needed and I require strict boundaries to be set otherwise I start to act naughty because I know I can. I'm pretty smart too. I know how to sit, paw shake, wait and listen when you call my name. And most importantly, I am potty trained and love using the doggy door. Please consider me as part of your family.

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Los Banos, CA
      Posted Breed: Black Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Meet Eric, this fella is guessed to be about 6-7 years of age and a black lab mix. He has been with the rescue for two years looking for his forever place. Currently in foster he is able to bloom and we finally see his personality. He is an old guy with little care for the young types that are in his face too much so it is best he is not placed with anyone young and rambunctious. He is great with dogs his size though, no cats for this guy as he loves to chase them. He still has a bit of energy, but will not be running any marathons any time soon. Eric is about 65-70 pounds (due to some vanity weight he can afford to lose LOL), knee height, and is house broken. He can be a bit stubborn in his old age so it is best his adopters do not expect too many tricks out of him. This old guy just needs a place to retire and spend the rest of his days relaxing. He is neutered, UTD on shots, and microchipped. We would love to see him placed in that forever home before Christmas please help us find that place by sharing! If you are interested in Eric please complete the adoption application located on katesrescue.org by downloading and saving it as a word document. After completed it can be emailed to us @ happydance@katesrescue.org with “Eric” as the header.
