Adoption Pending DogsAbigail

These dogs are in Foster-to-Adopt homes. This gives pros pective adopters 30 days to foster the dog in their own home before finalizing the adoption. We feel that a 30 day trial period is a good start to know whether the dog will be happy in that household and whether the household will be happy with the dog! Dogs will often act more cautiously for the first 2 weeks, so a full month of dealing with the dog during your regular routine is very important.

If you are interested in becoming a regular foster home or in our Foster-to-Adopt program, please read our Fostering Agreement. We actively encourage Foster-To-Adopt!




Baxley Head

Adoption Pending!

Baxley

Baxley is a 1 year old male. He was a stray from the Modesto area, so nothing is known of his background.

This cutie is only about 65 lbs, but has a big puppy heart. He will happily chase a ball, returning it to you and sitting for the next throw. He loves to play in water and with other dogs. While he doesn't mean any harm to cats, he can be quite the playful pest to them, even when they don't run.

Baxley is lovable and happy with people, and is learning that he cannot be a lap dog.

This is a Level 2 Dog!

Belle Head

Adoption Pending!

Belle

Belle is a stunning two year old tan and black female long coat. She came from a Sacramento area shelter as a stray, so little is known of her background. Soon after coming to our rescue group, it became evident that Belle was pregnant. On 12/8/15, she delivered nine pups that we refer to as the Soda Pup litter, which includes Barqs, Crush, Dew, Fresca, Izze, Jolt, Pepper, Sunkist and Tiki. Belle was a great mom to all nine puppies.

Belle has lots of energy and likes other dogs and people. Belle likes getting into cars and rides well. To amuse herself, she does run the fence and barks at the small neighbor dogs. She is affectionate, housebroken and knows basic commands.

cedar Head

Adoption Pending!

Cedar

Cedar is very handsome and lanky black and tan boy, who is approximately 1 year old and came to us from a Sacramento shelter, so little is known of his background.

In his foster home, he is living and doing great with a large male German Shepherd and a male Pug. Cedar's foster family report that he has settled into their routine nicely, and has immediately become part of the household!

He is a young, exuberant, and curious German Shepherd, who if left alone in the house will have a field day, and get into anything and everything. He is as inquisitive as he is sweet, but like any young dog, and will need guidance, boundaries, and leadership to become a great companion.

This is a Level 2 Dog!

Savannah May Head

Adoption Pending!

Savannah May

Savannah May is a 4-5 year old bicolored large female, weighing a solid 85 pounds. She was a confiscated dog from the Modesto Shelter, taken from a hoarding situation. Nothing else is known of her background.

Although she reportedly lived with other dogs, she is a very dominant female, who would not do well in a home with smaller dogs or cats. She would be fine in an only dog setting or with another larger male dog.

This is a Level 3 Dog. Please be sure you understand what this level of dog requires.

The benefits of a German Shepherd—loyalty, protectiveness and eagerness, to name a few—come from careful obedience training and authority. Everyone in the household must be prepared to show “authority” and earn the dog’s respect with a firm but loving touch. They do not respond to negativity or anger. Once achieved, this respect may need to be earned again and again.
