Posted 9-18-20. Sheldon is a fabulous family dog looking for a loving home due to a change in his family's living situation. He's a 6-year-old, 65-pound Coon Hound/Pit Bull mix with a very sweet and gentle temperament. Sheldon is house trained and crate trained, and he knows basic obedience commands such as sit, lay down and shake. He is wonderful with children and got along fine with the cat in his home. He does pull on the leash if he sees other dogs, but he takes correction. Sheldon is in good health and he's neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. Sheldon is not an AFRP dog and currently lives in Scotts Valley. For more information please call Carrie at 831-359-1628 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Breed: Siberian Husky
Weight: 80 lbs
Posted 9-16-20. This is Mishka. She's an 9-month-old 80-pound spayed female Siberian Husky in need of an active, loving home. Her family had her since she was a puppy, but need to find her a new home due to some changes in family circumstances. Mishka is house trained and crate trained and enjoys meeting new people and playing with other dogs. She has not met cats, but this breed typically has some prey drive so a cat-free home would probably be best. This smart and easily trained dog knows how to sit, stay, shake, lay down. She does not jump up and walks nicely with a harness, pulling only when she gets excited. Mishka is basically a big baby that loves attention and belly rubs! She'll be a wonderful addition to an adopter that understands the mental and physical needs of Northern breed dogs. Mishka is not an AFRP dog and currently lives in the Sacramento area. For more information please contact Chayanne at (916)825-8255 or email email@example.com
Breed: Lab/Pit mix
Weight: 15 lbs.
Posted 2-5-20. Hershey is a silly and fun-loving, tennis ball-chasing, most affectionate lab/pit mix you'll ever meet! He's a 6-year-old, 70-pound neutered male and is in good health and is up to date on vaccines. Hershey loves people he's completely house trained. He is very smart and knows ten basic obedience commands - very trainable and motivated! He LOVES to play fetch! Unfortunately Hershey is not comfortable around young children, and his family is looking for a single adopter or a couple without kids, willing to give him a loving environment and plenty of daily exercise. His current family is willing to help pay for any addition training Hershey needs while adjusting to a new home. Hershey is not an AFRP dog and currently lives in San Francisco. For more information please contact Shirlin at 310-710-8146 or firstname.lastname@example.org

Breed: Pit Bull terrier mix
Weight: 58 lbs.
Posted 10-8-19. Simon is a sweet and loving 58-pound pit bull terrier mix that will be 2 years old on Christmas Day, 2019. He's in need of a new home because his guardian is relocating and cannot take him along. He's a smart and silly guy that gets along great with other dogs, kids and cats. He knows his basic obedience commands and hand signals, and he's pretty reliably house trained. Simon is a healthy dog but was born with a neurological condition that causes his legs to be a little unsteady. His front legs give out from time to time, and his back legs have tremors. He can walk and run with his awkward gait, but long walks are not his thing. He also has an underdeveloped lower jaw, which gives him a big overbite - but he can eat and drink just fine. Simon is neutered and up to date on vaccines. Can you help this special dog? Simon is not an AFRP dog and currently lives in San Jose.
