So this is Wyatt. Right eye was removed and he had entropion on the other. Here is his bio…

Well, as you can see, I have had a rough go of it for the last couple of weeks. My name is Wyatt, and I am from the Stockton animal shelter where I came in as a stray with no one looking for me. Maybe my previous owners did not want to pay for the veterinary care that was needed to fix my eyes. Unfortunately, I had a prolapsed iris in my right eye which was causing me pain, and it needed to be removed. My left eye needed entropion surgery. The shelter staff saw something special in me and reached out to my now foster parents, and although I’m not pure Shar Pei, they accepted me into their program. I am very happy to be here receiving the TLC I need to recover from my multiple surgeries.

I am only about two years old and get along with just about everyone. I weigh about 50 pounds and I am very affectionate. I like to give lots of kisses, and I can’t wait until I get rid of this cone so I can start giving “real” kisses. What I lack in pure Shar Peiness, I make up for in pure sweetness. I am so happy to have been given this second chance at life, and I would so much like to share my joy. Since my surgeries I am as good as new, and I’m hoping for a new life with a new family that will love me and care for me “till death do us part”. I will return the favor and make you glad every day that you picked me to become part of your family.

I will post more pictures when they remove this darn cone!

Lyra and Rana

Adoptions are now pending for both puppies!

Hello from those of us here in Redding. We are two of the newest and some would say cutest additions to this extended family. We came into the rescue with our mom, Luna. We’re sure you will see a picture of her very soon. She will need a home too, and we really want that for her since she has been such a good mom to us. She was bred before she was a year old, and does have some medical needs that will be taken care of for her. She will need eye surgery on both eyes, and her fur needs some time to grow back. We’re told giving birth can be a very stressful situation for the mother and especially for a first time mom. We already know she is beautiful inside, and before you know it she will be just as beautiful on the outside. She will be spayed before she goes into her new home so we are her one and only litter. There were other puppies, but we were the only ones the previous owners were willing to give up, and we are thankful for that.

We are both little girls, and everyone who meets us thinks we are just about cutest things they’ve seen. The vet thinks we are around eight weeks old, and we are almost ready to go into our new homes. One thing we are certain of is that we are 100% half Shar Pei! As for the other half, it’s anyone’s guess. Many have tried, but it is still a mystery and probably will remain so. Since we look so much alike, we probably had the same father. It doesn’t really matter to us, and we hope it won’t matter to you. We will make a great addition to the right family, and we know we will probably not go to the same home. That is ok with us as long as we get lots of attention and play time. We are puppies so we will need some training to know what is expected of us, but we are quick learners, and think of all the together time we could have while we train each other! By the way, our names are Lyra and Rana in keeping with the constellation theme that started with our mom’s name, Luna.

Please get in touch if you think you are a good match for us.

Hello. My name is Peaches, and I came from the San Francisco SPCA, but
that's not where my journey began. For my entire five years of life I was
kept in someone's back yard and bred continuously. When my left eye
ruptured I guess they thought I was no longer of any value to them and the
surrendered me to San Francisco Animal Control where my journey very nearly
ended. I must have had some guardian angels at the San Francisco SPCA
watching over me because they insisted that they could help me, and after
much convincing, they took me to their facility. They needed to find
someone who would commit to taking me after my medical needs had been taken
care of so they contacted my now foster parents in Redding, and my life was
about to take a new path. The nice folks at the SPCA had my eye removed and
I was spayed-they took really good care of me. Now I am here in Redding
making friends with a lot of similar looking "people". I like other dogs
and two legged people-I'm really easy to get along with. I don't ever want
to live in anyone's backyard again-I want to be part of a family who loves
me for me. I know I only have one eye, but that one eye is the window to my
kind and gentle soul. I am looking for a family that can appreciate that,
and that will open their hearts and home to me. It's a small price to pay
for a lifetime of unconditional love.

Hello, my name is Wally, and I am a new arrival in Redding. My foster mom was notified about me by the shelter in AZ where I came from. I had very limited time before I was going to be euthanized, and it seemed no one else had any interest in saving my live. My foster parents committed to taking me into the rescue, but not before they had eye surgery done for me in AZ. The surgery went well, but my eyes were already permanently damaged. I have no vision in one eye, and it is limited in the other, but I get around just fine. My limited vision does not stop me from being a sweet and happy boy. None of us are perfect, and it is our imperfections that make us who we are. I hope there is someone out there reading this who will consider me as a new addition to their family.

Well, my name is Biggie, and I find myself in this rescue situation due to homeowner restriction problems. Since you humans are supposed to be smarter than we canines, wouldn't you think to check on restrictions BEFORE you buy a new residence? Even I can figure that out! At any rate, my previous owner did not check and therefore it was either me leaving or all of us having to find a new place. The good news is that they contacted this rescue so I was not faced with the uncertainties of ending up in a shelter, but now I'm faced with the uncertainty of where my forever home will be. I am told that I will no longer have to live in the backyard as I had to in my previous living situation. It is all I have known all my live so it might be a little bit of an adjustment for me to learn to live inside instead of outside but one I'm happy to make. I am a handsome red horsecoat, weighing in at about 50 pounds-not a ounce of fat I want you to know! Anyway, I would like to change my uncertainty to the certainty of finding a wonderful new home for the new year. Can you help me out?
