Meet Jolly!

Jolly is lively, tail wagging Jolly boy, once he's out of his kennel he warms up quickly and is very friendly. He is a goofy, happy tail-wagger who likes to get and give kisses.

Jolly has medium energy and walks well on a leash with a harness. He needs more training but is so eager to please. He seems timid at first but he loves people and once he bonds, he will be your loyal forever friend. great Pyrs are Guardians and require space and animals, people and activity. They can be nocturnal and have a loud alarm bark to alert to threats to their “herd/pack/family” there is much to consider when adding a Pyr to a home. Adoption Fee:$550

Vanessa means Soft, and she is that! Veda is also a laid back version of a Husky, and on the smaller side at a bit under 40 pounds, but likely to get to 45 or so, as she is pretty thin. Veda walks easily on a leash, and is submissive and dog friendly. She is off to a wonderful foster home...more soon on this lovely girl as we get reports!

$450 adoption fee.

   Name: HEY
An Old Dog Named HEY!

   Breed: Shepherd - Pit Bull Terrier Mix
   Gender: Male
   Age: 12 yrs. 3 mo.  Birthday: 9/2006 (est)
   Weight: Large (60 - 90 pounds)
   Milo ID: 28403
   Current Location: Foster Care
Hey was found in Leona Canyon, part of the Anthony Chabot Regional Park in Oakland, on July 20th, 2018. He was lurking in the bushes near the creek. It took about an 1.5 hours from when I first saw him to when I was finally able to put a leash on him. I had 6 other dogs with me at the time, who were very helpful with getting him comfortable enough for me to get close to him. He liked the other dogs quite a lot, but was not so sure about me.

Ideal new home: The type of home that I believe would work best for him would have dog door access to a well fenced yard. He benefits from being able to let himself out during the night, as he can't always hold his bladder until morning. His ideal new owner would be able to take him to work or would work from home. So far he has not been great at being left home alone for more than an hour. If this isn't an option, I think he can do it, but would need yard access and not be able to get through/under/over the fence.

Behavior with other dogs: He is a fairly well behaved dog who gets along well with most other dogs, big or small. He is better with less hyper dogs, which he sometimes finds annoying, but it really depends on the dog, sometimes he likes them quite a lot. He has bitten one dog while with me, but it was a defensive bite. A Labrador attempted to guard a resource from him (something they were sniffing), attacking "Hey!", who bit back, tearing the Lab's lip. He sometimes growls at dogs when he first meets them if they meet face to face, but with supervision he has always been able to get over it pretty quickly and learn to coexist without conflict. He has met a few dogs he is open to playing with, but being on the older side of life, he doesn't have a whole lot of play energy in him. He does like the attention though.

Behavior with cats, people, children: So far he has been great around cats, but I've only seen him around 2 different cats. He pretty much ignores them. He is timid at first around new people, but warms up to them. He always allows people to pet him, but keeps his tail tucked until about 15-30min into the encounter. He has also been great with children, the youngest he has interacted with was 1.5yo. According to Leslie, he grew up around children. She has shown me pictures which prove this.

General Behavior: He gets anxious and restless. This usually manifests as panting, pacing, and drinking too much water. To keep him from doing this, I use a tie-down strapped to the leg of my couch (6' leash). This works well for him because he likes sleeping on my couch anyway. I'll let him loose after a couple hours, send him outside, let him drink a little, and then put him back for more nap time. At night he sleeps in this same spot on the couch, but I don't tie him down. Instead I leave my backdoor cracked so he can let himself out, and I take away all the water bowls. If I don't remove his access to water, he will drink all of it, and then sometimes pee on the couch, I assume by accident (it's not marking). So long as he doesn't have water at night, he doesn't "wet the bed". Milo will get him in for a urinalysis.

He gets anxious when crated, but has gotten much better about it. According to Leslie, he was "never confined". At first he would try to push his way out, and scraped up his snout a little. He doesn't do this anymore. Now he just pants, but can be in a crate for upwards of an hour. I've worked him up to eating in a crate, which has greatly improved his opinion of being crated. Unless I put food in the crate first, he won't go in willingly or on command, but will if I'm touching his collar. I usually don't have to apply a lot of pressure, I mostly just have to be in contact with his collar, and sometimes give a little tug towards the inside of the crate. He does not like riding in a crate in the car, but will do it, and will pant the whole time. He can however be left alone, uncrated in a parked car for up to a couple hours without a problem, but don't leave the windows open very much, if he thinks he can, he might try to climb out. If he doesn't think he can break out, he just curls up and sleeps. He's a funny old dog.

He also has some separation anxiety that kicks in if I leave him at home for more than an hour or so. This is a massive improvement compared to when I first found him, and he couldn't go more than a few minutes before freaking out. I suspect that some of his current anxiety comes from needing to pee and not being able to do so outside. When I do leave him home alone, I usually come back to find a puddle in the living room and the recycling can knocked over in the kitchen. So, it could be a lot worse.

His likes: He loves riding in the car and sticking his nose out the window. He really likes fetch and crunching on plush squeaky toys, but didn't show any interest in balls or toys until after his teeth were fixed. He plays old dog fetch, so, relatively short underhand groundball tosses. He really like

   Name: KARAT

   Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier Mix
   Gender: Male
   Age: 9 wks.  Birthday: 10/2018 (est)
   Weight: Medium (30 - 60 pounds)
   Milo ID: 28383
   Current Location: Foster Care

Karat is the most mellow. He still does love to run and wrestle but his favorite thing is sleeping in your lap. He is more cautious than his siblings and can get a little frightened of things such as trash bags being opened. But he has started to gain confidence and with more positive reinforcement he will gain more confidence. He loves his people and can be vocal when he is without them, so another dog and/or further training will be necessary.

   Name: KIWI

   Breed: Labrador Retriever Mix
   Gender: Female
   Age: 1 yr. 7 mo.  Birthday: 5/2017 (est)
   Weight: Medium (30 - 60 pounds)
   Milo ID: 28381
   Current Location: Foster Care
FOSTER UPDATE: Kiwi is a sweetheart of a dog with a very gentle disposition. She has easily adjusted to our home and our family (mom, dad, 14 y.o. daughter and 11 y.o. son). She loves to snuggle up with someone, especially if she is receiving a pet or a scratch behind the ears. While she generally has done well meeting other people who are new to her, she has demonstrated mild trepidation around smaller children, especially boys (she backs away from them).

She shows curiosity and interest in other dogs, but doesn’t go out of her way to interact with them. When she arrived (less than a week ago), she wasn’t housebroken. We are now potty training her and she is making great progress (0-1 accident/day). Kiwi isn’t crate trained, but she enjoys spending time in an exercise pen, which we’ve made comfy and cozy with a bed, toys, and towels (and a tarp underneath, just in case). We have begun to leave her on her own in the pen for extended periods of time.

Kiwi walks well on a leash unless she is unsure about something she sees/hears and/or distracted in which case she stops in her tracks and needs to be coaxed to get going again. She isn’t a barker or mouthy and doesn't jump up. She’s quite calm and quiet inside and outside.

A loving home environment combined with basic obedience and socialization training as well as an established routine is all Kiwi needs to become the best companion ever!


We can't decide what she is a mix of - we thought MAYBE Plott Hound - but - nah...the liver nose - and her size is which is pretty medium almost 50, but under. Soft eyes and a warm heart for sure.
