Marlo is a project. She is so, so shy. I would love for an adopter who wanted to work with her. But upfront. She's a different kind of dog.
Marlo is great with all other dogs, and she's accepting of walking on a leash with people she is introduced to. She would love to sleep on your couch, or your bed! But try to approach her in the yard and she runs to her safe spot, wherever that is, here it's her bed in my room, then you can put her harness on or leash. Or give her a pill or a manicure.
Routine oriented is an understatement. As long as she knows where she belongs, she sticks around. Routine is key for her, she thrives on it. She will make you laugh because of this! "No you have to do it this way! We ALWAYS do it this way!"
So basically I have been living with a dog on the spectrum( Aren't we all?). She absolutely has never shown any aggression, and that is her saving grace. She is adoptable to the right person. Marlo lives in my house, has access to the dog door and never has an accident. She jumps in and out of the car by herself. And she now takes treats, a huge sign, she's going to be fine.
She does everything your regular dog does. But she does it watchfully and cautiously. This is leaps and bounds better than a year ago, and the year before that. Marlo has been here 2 years now. And she needed it.
I have taken Marlo as far as I can. I have a dog rescue and, and 2 dogs of my own. She has all the privilege, but I can't give her the attention and affection a dog should have. She's ready for that, Marlo will bond with her adopter.
LeRoy has been gone for about 8 months. I don't know the reason, but he never really hit it off with the dog that was already in the home. Here, I never had any issues with jealousy. He was a pack dog and didn't demand anymore attention than my others. Reasonable guy.
But people are different. Jealousy equates to a dog feeling they own you. They own nothing except maybe a cow hoof, but I still can take it away if I want. Never allow a dog to own you. When LeRoy stopped letting the other dog be part of affection time, he had to find a new home.
About 3 yrs old his kennel card says. Leroy was a stray walking around Terra Bella, not good. He got to Tulare County Shelter and they knew what to do.
Leroy is now a CCHD Rescue dog~~~ Nothing but up from here!
I have information from Leroy's finder and savior. Sue says: We had him at our house overnight. I found him in our grove and whistled to get his attention, he came running. Very friendly from the get go. Great recall! Thrived on being told he's a “good boy” and pets. Excellent walking on a leash, we went to neighbors, seeing if he was lost.
He's friendly with my husband and daughter. Attentive and submissive, laying down, showing his belly. Very eager to listen and please. Our other dogs eager to figure out who he was, lots of friendly dog sniffing though a wire fence. My chihuahua did sneak out into the front yard with him and Leroy was not phased by him.
Leroy is also smart. Jumped on a flower box and jump into our backyard to play with our 2 year old male Shepard! They had a ball, lots of running, high energy chase. No observed aggression. We took a chance on his friendly demeanor and gave him a bath because he had rolled in something dead before he showed up! He love, but tolerated. Enjoy the scrubbing very much and was full of zoomies afterwards!
We have had strays try to go our chickens and goats, but Leroy didn’t care about them at all. He was very curious about our cats though, but not in a malicious manner. Overall, he seems like a very good natured dog. I think he will be a great pet for the right family.
Amazing to think on Jan 2 he was a dumped dog in Terra Bella smelling like the dead animal he rolled in, and now in Paso Robles, to start a life filled with love.
Gorgeous 1,5 yr old Border Collie / Heeler, possibly some McNab, gorgeous gal! She is shy initially but warms up, she’s is looking for a calm, low-key, herding dog experienced home.
Camille is great with other dogs, good on leash! House trained and crate trained. She would be a great companion and running/hiking/walking partner for someone who likes the quiet life and has the time to spend with her!
This little girl was just sitting in the shelter waiting to die. I don't know where she came from, or how her leg was broken. She was offered to me when the dog I was going to pull was adopted. I had no idea how close this little puppy was to euthanasia. Her intake was the 21st, but she didn't get mandatory intake shots until the 27th, the day I pulled her... that says something to me. They weren't spending any more resources on this puppy with a broken femur... Reality bites.
She did come with a name. Pippi, and she responds well to it, but it's so close to Puppy. And it's easy to say.
Pippi is such a sweetheart. We all live together. And we will for a while, so her leg can heal properly.
She's learned about my dog door, and it was tough with a cone on! Now we have a donut now, it's much easier now.
Pippi is very respectful of my own dogs. She thought she could run this show at first! But she has had some excellent schooling in appropriate dog behavior and respect!
Pippi is available for adoption. We can start that process. She's about 4 months old. Soft, beautiful.
Her tail is a natural bob! A stumpy tail! I'm guessing her owners got the dog of their dreams, and then were overwhelmed when she was hit by a car... and walked away... just my thinking...
Lest we forget, Georgie still needs a home! Georgie has been doing perfectly in foster care. But would be so nice to have him tucked in by the end of this year! I know we can!
First the shelter said he was 6. Then we met him, had to be no more than 2-3 years. Now after his neuter, the vets says 12 months! Only one year old?! Georgie is a lucky guy! He wound up in Tulare City at a very nice shelter, where they care for their dogs.
Georgie went in with a fractured vertebrae near his tail! He was on strict bed rest while healing so he lost some muscle mass. He is still healing but he is now on the move! He's walking, using stairs, regulating himself and being careful. He lies down when he gets tired.
The plan is for Georgie to hang out at his foster’s while his fractured tailbone finishes knitting and he has put on some good weight (muscle). His back end needs to match his front!
The latest from Foster extraordinaire:
Some pictures from the past couple of weeks. Georgie goes on two mile runs with us now, plays like a normal puppy, and is up and about the house like normal. Still gaining muscle but he can pretty much be treated like a normal pup who wasn’t injured. He would be an amazing family dog. So gentle, loves everyone, totally housebroken, and perfectly crate trained!
BELLA! 2 year old Border Collie mix, this little girl has the personality of a Border Collie, highly alert, ready for action, and super smart! She’s going to be a dog that needs a Border Collie savvy person, someone who loves a super smart dog and will keep Bella stimulated. Bella would be a great agility, frizbee, fly-ball dog! A single person or a couple in a low chaos home, no children, would be best. More to come as we get to know her.
Dodger was Corey, but answered to Reggie, but that life is behind him! He is Dodger.
Dodger was found in Southern Ca running along the median of a busy boulevard.
It took 20 hours of just exhausting him, to the point he fell asleep and could have a net thrown over him.
He was scared of everyone. Taken to a vet right away, it was discovered his jaw had been broken. And he had a micro-chip. Owners contacted, and they were most likely ones who did this to him. No going back to them!
Dodger is only about a 10 month old puppy, who for good reason, has trust issues. Once he sees you are friend, he is this dog in the videos, and the snuggly picture with his fosters in their home.
He will be a one family guy, including your inner circle of friends. But this is who Dodger is. He won't walk up and nip, but he wants his space and respect of that space. Until he is ready, on his terms.
In a balanced home, he'll gain confidence and grow right out of this stranger danger.
Welcome Dina! @ years old, straight off the red list at Riverside! We do hope someone will adopt a dog before we have to put a stop to what's about to happen. We juggle dogs, that's why it's always a last minute save. But Dina is here!
Dina was impounded back in the first week of September. For a high volume urban shelter, that is an incredible life span in the shelter, and how we knew Dina was very worthy of getting the heck out of there.
Here she's proven to be great with people and other dogs. It's how it has to be to get here.
Dina is very focused on me when I am out there, she follows me, she wants to go in the van! Hops right in, but I'm not leaving!
Her recall is great. And I have no issues feeding all the dog together from a dozen bowls. That is a good pack dog. But Dina would love to have someone all to herself. She's plenty confident to be the only in the home! Either way, great family member in the works here!
Dina is very happy to be out of the shelter and being a very good citizen while she waits for an adopter... so c'mon, it's not polite to keep a gal waiting...

Say hey to Sparky, another great dog that almost wasn't.
Say hey to Sparky, another great dog that almost wasn't. Sparky is about 2 yrs old. He's friendly, outgoing, great on a leash, fantastic with other dogs. He walked into my yard with his shelter mate Dina, like it ain't no thang. Cool as can be, so nice. Sparky is a really easy going dog, and he has GREAT recall. He just wants to be where I am. This dog was impounded in August! That saying so much! The shelter didn't put him down, they gave him every chance for adoption or rescue, and we did too. When it came to the last day, we had to get him. He's now neutered, chipped, current on vaccinations, and waiting for you! Tick tock!

ERROL made it out by the skin of his teeth thanks to a herder savvy foster stepping up to help this little guy. It was a whirlwind rescue!
WYATT is about 2 yr, male Cattle Dog, stocky little guy, looks like he’d been living outside prior to his incarceration, he got a good a scrub down and felt so much better! The shelter apparently never tried to leash him, but I was able to easily put a collar on him and he walks on a leash pretty well. He loves getting pets. Wyatt is very is well behaved! He gets along with all other dogs with no aggression. Walks nicely on leash, comes when called, stays by me when off leash. Likes to lie on the couch and get belly rubs. Probably needs to go to a house with older kids, or no kids. A 6 yr old is fine with him, but the 3 yr old makes him nervous. He is to be fine with the adults being loud but when the kids are loud he doesn't look comfortable. And he will jump a fence, just to get back to you. He jumped his fosters fence to get to her out in the front yard! That was all he wanted. Wyatt is super sweet and cuddly and wants a best friend to hang with all the time! What, a guy!
Adoption fee is $350 and includes sterilization surgery, vaccinations, flea & tick abatement, worming, transportation to us, microchipping + chip registration. Also covers care for all the dogs while in rescue.
