Happy Ends

We are very proud of our hundreds of successful adoptions, and the many happy families that have returned to adopt from us again, and again, over the years.

Here are photos of some of our adopted kids. You can search by dog or family name.


Bobby was adopted by Julie in Richmond, CA.

Hi, it's me, Bobby.

I just wanted to let you all know how I am doing here in Redding. I have been to see Dr. Larry who thinks Iím probably closer to 6-7 years old than 12 years old judging from my teeth. Thatís good news for me and anyone who might want to make me part of their family. My foster dad says I donít act like a 12 year old Pei. Iím out there doing ďplay bowsĒ and running around the yard trying to engage him in some kind of play, but maybe HEís the one who is too old for that!

I have had my eyes done, I was neutered, and they even cleaned my teeth for me. Unfortunately, now I have tested positive for heartworm disease. I will start the treatment as soon as I heal from my surgeries. I hear itís not an easy treatment for me, but I am confident that I will be fine and ready for a new home when it is complete. It will be about two months before I will get a ďclean bill of healthĒ, but you know good things are worth waiting for!

I hope my story has touched your heart. I also hope for those of you who have not tested your four legged companions for heartworm disease and put them on preventative, that you will make an effort to do that. The treatment may be difficult and somewhat painful, but left untreated the disease is a death sentence. I am lucky that my foster parents test every dog who is accepted into their program. Yes, there have been dogs that have come from Southern CA who were positive, although there are people in that area who do not think their dogs are at risk. The area I came from is not considered high risk, but that mosquito who bit me and gave me this disease sure didnít know any boundaries. Itís an easy blood test and a once a month preventative that can prevent heartworm disease, and I can tell you that I sure wish my previous owners had done that for me so I would not be having to go through the upcoming treatment. I am just glad it was discovered, and I will have the opportunity to live a long and healthy life. Once the treatment is complete, I will have no lasting effects.

Well, I will get off my soap box now. I just wanted all of you to be aware of heartworm disease and what you can do to prevent it.

I wish I had new photo of my handsome self to share with you, but my foster parents have had a lot going on. I will be touch after my treatment with an update and new picture.

Thanks for caring.



Luke is now calling Chino, CA, home with the Gough family.


Calli now lives in Eugene OR with her new Pei brother, Hop Sing, who was also adopted from us.

Hello everyone. My name is Callie, and before you go thinking that I am trying to pass myself off as a pure Pei, I know I am of mixed descent. Iím not sure if it was my mother or father who was the Pei, and I donít even know what my other parent might have been. Itís really not important anyway because no matter what my background might be, Iím a real looker. Iíve heard it said that it looks as though someone photo shopped a Pei head on a Basset body-I guess itís the short legs and long body Enough about all that.

Let me tell you a little about my personality which is also right up there with my good looks. I am very active and outgoing. I think I would like to live as an only dog. If I must share my home with another dog, I would really like it to be someone of the male dog persuasion. Not that I donít like the ladies, I just donít want to live with one 24/7. Iím only about three years young and weigh around 35 pounds-very petite! If you are looking for a companion that is sure to get a conversation started then Iím your girl! Iíve had all my necessary surgeries and vaccinations, and now Iíd like to get a conversation started with youÖ

Charley has been adopted by Mark in Elk Grove, CA


Winnie has been adopted by Jay and Kelly and is calling Oregon home.

I would like to introduce myself to you. My name is Winnie, and I am from Southern CA. My story is a little different from most of my companions here in Redding since I did not come from a shelter. I was found in a ditch, thought to have been thrown out of a car. The nice man who found me could not keep me, and the neighbor who notified this rescue about me was in the same position of not being able to give me a forever home. Both of these people were very kind to me, and I don't want to think where I may have ended up had it not been for them. I arrived in Redding needing bilateral entropion surgery and to be spayed. I am happy to say I have had all my surgeries and vaccinations and now would like to find a forever home. I am not even a year old yet and very small-right around 30 pounds. I have lots of energy because I am still a puppy, and I need some training. I know this is not a very good picture of me, but I guess photography is not my foster parents' strong suit. They are, however, very good at giving us lots of love and attention as well as providing us with only premium dog food-yum! They also take care of all of our medical needs no matter what they may be. So, the photo may not be great, but the life here in Redding is. All that being said, I would still like a family to call my own. I'm waiting for you...
