Mum says it's my gotcha day today! my pawrents adopted me 1 year ago today when i was 4 months old and we couldn't be happier together! so soo much love 💙🐾 oh, and happy national puppy day!!!!
Meet this week’s repeat diamond dog, bickard!! the reason this little fella was chosen is simply because he has been at our shelter 189 days and counting!! according to multiple volunteers and staff, he is the perfect companion for any family. he is full of energy and loves to jump around in his kennel, but he is simply trying to get your attention to let him out. wouldn’t you be ready to let loose if you lived in a kennel that long? bickard knows how to sit! this wiggly pup is full of joy and loves to give kisses. he would be a great dog to hang with you on the trails or simply cuddle up on the couch after playing in the yard. a good butt-scratch will send him into his happy-dance! he is just beginning to focus enough to take direction (puppy brain), and he's very proud of his new skills! in addition to "sit," he's learning to fetch (to burn some energy) and will even "give" for a treat. he really seems to enjoy being able to interact through this game! he walks well on leash with harness, gets along with other dogs, and isn't too jumpy--though sometimes a bit excited. he's working on keeping his kennel clean, and the caretakers have been helping by sending him out first thing each morning. he is a smart dog that will need plenty of mental and physical exercise and some direction for his smart brain! please come meet bickard--you will fall head over heels for him, or simply share and help get him adopted!!❤

Hi! i’m a very shy guy. i need you to go slow with me & give me time to warm up. i’m also very shy with other dogs and a bit fearful of them as well. i promise i’ll come out of my shell if you give me a little time & patience. my trailblazer left some info about me stating i was. wry good on a leash. loved people & children. while walking in the park i liked to roll in the grass. my personality is great and i’m s super loving puppy. **if i’m not quite what you are looking for click on the link in our profile for more available animals!

It’s #nationalpuppyday so after 2 weeks of all the attention being on our foster puppy, i want to take a minute to appreciate the real all star pup in our life. cooper loves her puppies more than anything but we try to take breaks in between the ones she especially bonds with to put all our attention on her and let her recuperate. cooper wasn’t always so great with foster babies. we’ve worked through resource guarding and jealousy so that now a puppy can sit on her head while stealing her marrow bone from her mouth, and her first response is to look at us for “what would you like me to do?” (come get lots of treats is the answer of course!). she is not a perfect puppy, but she is our perfect puppy, and she’s always up for learning something new and adapting to a challenge. we’re so lucky to have a dog stable enough to let us foster, and i can’t wait to see what pup comes next for her💕 📷: @willferman

Please help ajay! #repost @mcaccwestadoptables

we really hate to have to beg for a plea to the community, but we need help! ajay is in severe jeopardy of being put to sleep. ajay is suffering in his kennel life. ⚠⚠⚠⚠⚠⚠⚠⚠⚠⚠⚠⚠⚠⚠⚠⚠
what does that mean??? some dogs may behave aggressively in response to stress, while other dogs will begin to perform repetitive behaviors, increase their frequency of barking/vocalization, become destructive, and start to cause harm to themselves in their kennel.
ajay is very very sweet! he's super lovable toward his volunteer friends. he loves to play and roll around in the pools in the play yards.
ajay is great on his leash walking skills. what does that mean for his adopters?? they already have a trained dog to take around the neighborhood or on a nice long hike. ajay would be happy to go with his family anywhere!
are you thinking he's too big for your apartment or condo? well ajay has that solved for you! he's only between 35-40 pounds. he's what we call a "pocket pup"!!! please help us!!!! we fight daily to keep the stress down on these pups but at some point they have been in the shelter for too long! we can't safely and humanely allow ajay to live like this if he continues to suffer from kennel stress.
at this point in time, ajay needs to be an only dog. that doesn't mean that he will always require to be the one and only. he needs a hero. is that you????
