OK, Ok, I know this is a silly picture, but for some reason you humans find humor in these sorts of things. My name is Gus, and I think I will try and get my foster parents to send a more realistic photo of me along with this one. I'm really a handsome guy, but I can be silly too. I am a cream dilute horsecoat boy with a rather complicated story which somehow includes Mexico. I'm not sure if that means I am originally from there, passed through there or was rescued from there. I do know I am no longer there! I was rescued by a group who works primarily with dogs in Mexico, but my story also includes Riverside. We are not going to go there, because I know even less about my involvement there. Anyway, this group saved me but had very little knowledge about my breed and reached out to my foster parents for help. It was agreed that I would come to Redding, but before I left my first rescuers did get me much needed eye surgery, and I want to thank them for that. When I got to Redding, my skin was looking a little "rough", but I'm looking good now! More than anything, I just want someone to pay attention to me-in my previous life I didn't get much of that. I would love for you to meet me so you can see for yourself just how good looking I am. You know, I really don't care what country, state, or county I live in as long as someone can give me the love and care I so long for and deserve. I'll be waiting to hear from you.

I am one of the newest residents here in Redding. My name is Sparky, and I am from a high kill shelter in Southern CA. My story is similar to the rest of my brothers and sisters with just a slight variation. I was originally adopted from a shelter in Southern CA and ended up back at the shelter. I was adopted again, and this time ended up at a different shelter than where I was originally from. Now here's where the story is the same as just about everyone else here. Even though I am microchipped, my owner didn't want me back-really, no one else wanted me either so that is how I ended up in Redding. These people do want me and are taking really good care of me-it's nice to feel wanted. I know my eye looks like it needs attention in this photo, but I think that is just the photographer-my eyes are actually pretty good. I am a cream horsecoat male on the small side. I can get along with another dog with the proper introduction. I'm not sure why I'm a "two striker", but I sure don't want to go for three. Please, no more shelters for me. Only take me home if you are sure you are ready to make a lifetime commitment to me because I am worth that.

Hello all you Pei lovers out there. I am Victor and come from a high kill shelter in Moreno Valley. I'm just another with the same old story-I used to have an owner, but they didn't think enough of me to come looking when I went missing. Maybe they still haven't realized I'm gone. You know most of us get more attention here than wherever it is we came from. At least our foster parents have made a lifelong commitment to us. Sure, they want us all to have "forever" homes, but if not with one of you, then they will consider us as one of their own and always take care of us. If you are looking to adopt, then please understand it is to be a lifelong commitment on your part too-we deserve that since we have already been abandoned once. I am speaking for all of us here at the rescue waiting for our special families to find us and love us. Now, as for me, I need an experienced Pei owner since I am going to test you to see how much I can get away with. You need to be smarter than I am, and I'm pretty darn smart. If you think you want to match wits with me, fill out the application, and I will give you a run for your money!
