Older, Special Needs
In general, we do not know the background or medical history of dogs we bring into our program. We cannot guarantee their temperaments, behaviors, or health. We generally place our program rescue dogs in foster homes so that we can learn more about them in a family situation and observe their behavior. We base the information we give on each dog on observations while the dog is in our program. Due to different leadership styles and environmental stimuli in your home, the dog may display different behaviors after it is adopted than what we observed while it was in our program. Also, just because a dog tests cat- or small dog-tolerant, or has lived in a foster home with cats or small dogs, does NOT mean it will automatically be tolerant of cats or small dogs in the new home, especially if the small pet is running or acting aggressively. It may take time and supervision while the animals adjust.
NOTE: All of our dogs are spayed or neutered as required of all California shelters and rescues by the California Food & Agriculture Code Section 30503. They are also current on all their vaccines and microchipped prior to adoption.
