My name is Lucy, and I came into this rescue with my companion, Ethel. Sadly, Ethel has gone to the Rainbow Bridge after being diagnosed with inoperable liver cancer. I miss her, but I know she is in a better place now. I am not very photogenic, so the photo really does not do me justice. I am a blue brushcoat, and I like other dogs. I am very outgoing and friendly, and I like lots of attention. My vet here thinks I am about four years young. I’m running out of things to say about myself-I am a girl of few words-and wish I could say my photo speaks louder than words, but in my case the photo doesn’t say nearly enough about me. I guess you’ll just have to meet me in person. You won’t be disappointed!

They call me Scrunchy-I can’t imagine why! I originally came from SoCal where I was found in a postal service truck yard. How I got there, I have no idea. A nice family down there took me in and looked for a rescue to find me a home. In my first foster home, I got along great with their cats, in fact the cats were picking on me! I also get along with other dogs well. I can be standoffish with new people like others here at the rescue. I wish people could understand that we are products of our environments, and just like people we respond to love and kindness. I will still respond to that and can become your new best friend if you will give me a chance. I have been neutered and have had entropion surgery since my photo was taken. I really look forward to interviewing you to find out if you are the right match for me, but better yet to find out if we are the right match for each other!

Well, here I am, Ruby, without my partner, Cool Joe, who was adopted. We were separated because after my eye surgery, Joe insisted on taking my E collar off. Because of that, I had to have my eyes done a second time. Not wanting me to have to go through the surgery a third time, my foster parents separated us. We seemed to do fine as individuals so we were available independent of one another. Joe has moved on with a new family, but I still need a family of my own. Even when I was living with Joe, I was fearful of new people. That has not changed, so my new family would have to understand that it will take some time for them to earn my trust. Once we get to know and trust each other, I am the most loving girl. I will just stand next to you and let you pet and scratch me until you get tired of doing it because I won’t tire of the attention. Perhaps I crave attention due to the lack of it in my previous home, perhaps my fearfulness of new people is also due to something that happened with my previous owner. Since I can’t talk, I can’t tell you, and maybe it’s better that way. Anyway, if you are willing to invest your time and love in me, you will be rewarded many times over!

My name is Moses, and although my story will surely have a happy ending now, had it not been for my foster parents here in Redding, the outcome would not have been good for me. In fact, I’m fairly confident that I would not be here to write my story. My foster parents were notified about me by a shelter in central CA. They were told that I looked like a purebred Shar Pei, but I really am of mixed heritage. That didn’t matter to them-they took a look at my photo and into my eyes and decided that I deserved an opportunity to live a “normal” life. You see, I had been hit by a car and just left on the road. Both my back legs were broken and needed orthopedic surgery sooner than later. My pelvis was crushed. My foster parents decided that Dr. Larry could probably put me back together and give me the best possible chance to walk again. So, today, a month after both legs received the necessary surgeries, I am happy to say I’m on the road to recovery. I’m having a hard time staying put, and I need two months of “down” time following the surgeries to heal properly. I am halfway there. My foster parents are taking real good care of me, and I am so grateful to have been given this second chance.

I am only about a year old and am looking forward to a long and happy life. It will still be quite a while before I am up to running and playing again, but that time will come. I will be available to go to my new home in about a month with few restrictions in terms of my care. I am such a happy boy and eager to please. I won’t ask for much-just keep me safe and love me the way I want to love you-unconditionally. Please help me write the “happy ending” chapter of my life by letting me be part of your life and making great memories and sharing many wonderful adventures together.
