Blue is approximately 3-4 years old, Shar Pei Staffordshire mix, he’s neutered and 64lbs. He’s housetrained and knows basic commands. He’s very friendly and has lived with other pets and a child. He’s a lovely dog, but he’s a strong boy so he needs a strong foster mom or dad. Blue will need a foster in order to pull him from a high kill shelter, then we’ll work to transfer him to a rural shelter where they can find him a forever home.
Serenity needs a foster home urgently! She’s currently being boarded and very upset and unhappy/ stressed. She’s a 5 year old spayed Staffordshire Terrier. She’s lived with other pets and a child. She’s been through a lot recently and needs a foster home so she can decompress while until she can be transferred to another rescue organization, since she’s been through so much she’d like a calm environment with someone who’s home most of the time to help ease her through the transition. Pit savvy a must. Are you that someone – please contact us if you are.
1-yr old pit x, found as stray by a homeless man a while back now unable to care for dog. Buddy is at the Sacramento shelter and not doing well without his owner. Will be Vaccinated & neutered prior to pull.
This dog was brought to my attention by Ann, the woman that runs the spay/neuter cat clinic that I volunteer at monthly. She met this dog Buddy and asked if there was anything I could do to help. A homeless man found him abandoned outside a soup kitchen a few months ago and took him in. That man has since had several problems and feared the dog would come to harm, so he enlisted a local cat rescue group to take Buddy to the city shelter and surrender him. I met Buddy and had my and the rescue’s name put on his file to contact in the event he was in danger of being euthanized. He was really sweet when Ann met him (as well as when I met him). His owner said he is good around other dogs, which I would tend to believe because they have been homeless, and he has no scars or sign of ever having been in a fight. However, once his owner left him, he flipped out, so naturally at the shelter he was still upset. They tried pairing him with several different dogs, but he started fights with all of them.
The shelter is full and cannot keep him long since he has to be in a kennel by himself. He is current on his vacs; he is intact but I can arrange for him to be neutered before he gets pulled. I would be happy to transport him as well. I could also get a big bag of food for him.
Urgent! “Help Champ!” – Sweet Pointer Mix Pup Needs Foster Home or Adopter ASAP!
“Champ” is a handsome boy that the shelter thinks is a black and white Pointer mix. He is as sweet as can be and about 5 months old. He still has “puppy energy” and will need more basic training, but he also enjoys some quiet time and getting affection from his humans. He is good with other dogs and unknown around cats. He is neutered and up-to-date on his shots.
Sadly Champ ended up at an overcrowded rural shelter due to no fault of his own, and was ”Out Of Time”. Champ is in boarding which is not optimum, he needs a foster home ASAP.

“Good Golly, Miss Molly!!” – this sweet tan and white pittie mix girl is sure to win your heart! She is about 5years old with a perfect medium size build at a lean 50lbs, and is already fully vetted (spayed, up-to-date on shots, and Heartworm negative).
Molly loves people and enjoys getting lots of affection and also play time too. She walks well on a leash, and is learning some basic commands and takes treat gently, so she will do well with someone who will continue her training. She enjoys car rides and sits contentedly (almost like a person) and would like to join you on your daily outings. When it is time to relax, she kennels well and is very mellow, clean and rarely barks. She is dog friendly and has shown only curiosity around cats but no strong prey drive.
Molly’s photos show what a pretty girl she is with a darling face. Take a look at her videos to see how well she does with meeting people, playing with other dogs, and her reaction around a cat.

Molly’s Background Story…
Molly was found as a stray on the streets in Socal and was taken in by a good samaritan that owned a kennel/boarding facility. Molly stayed at her kennel for several months but then recently it went out of business, and sadly the owner was not able to take Molly into her home. When all options were exhausted, it looked like Molly was facing having to go to the local shelter – an over-crowded high-kill facility where pitbulls have no chance to make it out! When the kennel worker that had cared for Molly heard about her situation, she was heartbroken and did not want her to face being put down. She stepped up and took Molly and found her a few temporary foster homes to take her in. Molly has been moving “home-to-home” the past few weeks but now she urgently needs either a permanent forever home or a more committed foster home.
Molly is an all around great girl and she will make a wonderful addition to a suitable matching home. If you would like to make Molly a part of your family and can offer her a permanent loving forever home (or even a foster home), please contact us ASAP by email at:

Nate is a handsome male white colored German Shepherd/Husky mix that is about 2 years old. Although he is a large breed mix, he is a nice manageable size, weighing about 60 – 70lbs. He has a gorgeous thick white coat, which has given him the nickname “Mr. Fluff” by his rescuers.
Nate found himself in a high-kill shelter in Socal and he was very unhappy and fearful in his lonely strange surroundings. He ended up on Death Row and was out of time when we heard about his plight and knew we had to step up to help save him. Thankfully we were able to get him pulled out to save his life and have him transported up to Dog Shack in Norcal.
Some friends of Dog Shack kindly took him into their home for a short time, to help him decompress from his traumatic shelter experience. They have said that he has already started to really enjoy life again and become a happy, loving dog. He is a sweetheart and will give kisses and is generally quite mellow and rarely barks. Also he likes walks and does fine on a sensation harness.
Now Nate needs either a foster home or a permanent home. We are still learning more about him and he is still working on overcoming some fears, so we feel he would be best suited to a dog savvy home with large breed experience and no young little children. Also, although he seems to do fine with other dogs, it is preferable that for now he is the only dog in the home. He would likely do best in a more quiet or rural setting, rather than near busy city life.
If you could be a great match for Nate, to provide him a foster home or permanent home (we also offer foster-to-adopt), please contact us ASAP by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org

Lake is a young female pittie mix that is about 2yrs old.She has unique coloring with a dark chocolate brown head with some white, and a bit lighter brown body – she has been described as “the color of German Chocolate cake!” She has a small compact, stocky build and weighs about 55lbs-60lbs.
Lake Tells Her Story…
Hello, my name is Lake – your imagination come true. I am a shy, sweet girl and barely 2 yrs old. Some human was not very nice to me when I was a baby. Neglected, starved, and not spayed – I was found wandering on a highway in the pit bull killing capitol of the world, by some really nice humans. They fed me, gave me shelter, told me my life is worth saving. Sadly I was only able to stay with them for a few weeks. You see, pit bulls are not allowed in most renter’s homes and deemed disposable in today’s society. So, a call came in for help, and Dog Shack came to my rescue.
I can tell you that I love treats, and I take them very gently from you. I appreciate and soak up any affection. I am afraid of FAST moving cars, they scare me. I am quick to learn, walk on a the leash like a lady, and will try very hard to please you. If only a human would spend some time and help me build my confidence. I would really excel in obedience training! I would even pull you on your skateboard or roller blades if you teach me. I travel well in the car, and also have spent some time in the crate.
I get along with respectful dogs and children I have met along my journey. What I really would love is to be in an adult household, and preferably with a handsome knight in shining armor to call my own (I seem to have a preference for men). I will be your best girl forever. Prince Charming where are you?!?!
Lake has a sad background story, but we are hoping now her life can turn around and she will have a long happy future ahead of her, once she finds her matching forever home!
