Lucky has been adopted!

(Lucky has found his new home!)
Lucky came from the same home that Domino was in. He is also being fostered by someone from the Alameda Small Dog Park. Lucky is a sweet, exuberant, active and playful mini-Poodle mix. His foster family includes two Chugs, and two cats - Lucky gets along well with all of them! He is house-trained and although spunky, is well -behaved. He would benefit from a puppy training course so he can learn his commands. He is very curious about the world so must always be on leash when outside. He has been known to run out the front door too so his new family will have to be watchful about that, and be conscientious about training him.

Domino has been ADOPTED!!

December 9, 2010 

We are happy to report that Domino has found his forever home. Thank you to his new owners for adopting this wonderful little fellow!!

Domino needs your help! He and his house-mate Lucky were both left at the Alameda Small Dog Park this week. Their guardians are no longer able to afford food and supplies for them and asked for help in finding them a good new home. Domino is being fostered in Alameda, and really needs someone to adopt him and give him a great new life. He is a very loving, affectionate and playful little guy - and as you can see from his photo, quite adorable looking as well. Domino was accepted right away by his foster family, which includes 3 chihuahua mixes (male & female), a senior terrier mix, and a cat. In other words, he gets along very well with other dogs! We believe him to be about one year old. He has some puppy energy, but in general seems to be a mellow, content fellow. He likes to play with toys, his foster siblings, and is unimpressed with the cat. He was not eating right in his former home, and needs to lose a couple of pounds. Right now he weighs about 25 pounds and should probably weigh around 22. A good quality food, and the right quantity will likely do the trick. We are not quite sure what his mixed breed is, but we are guessing Chihuahua, Boston Terrier?? or perhaps a bit of Beagle too?? Domino is neutered and has had his shots in the last year.
