Chelsea, terrier

Chelsea is a charming female terrier dog currently residing at 4 R Friends.

Chelsea will get along great with your other dogs. She is looking for a cat-free forever home. 4 R Friends, however, thinks she will do best in a home without small children. She's already spayed, and she has all her shots. She is also house-trained.

From Chelsea's current caretaker:

Chelsea is a gorgeous 7-year-old terrier looking for a family to call her own. She is house trained, walks well on leash and enjoys a 15-minute daily walk. Chelsea loves to spend time with the other dogs in her current home, but will be fine in a no-dog home as long as she is exercised. Chelsea is a laid back, sleep on the couch or bed, type of pup. Chelsea will do best in a home without children since she does not like to share her food, if she does go to a family with other dogs she will need to be fed separately.

Texas, border terrier mix

Texas is a handsome male border terrier mix being kept at Cosumnes River College Veterinary Technology Program.

Texas will get along great with your other dogs. His ideal forever home would be a cat-free environment. Cosumnes River College Veterinary Technology Program recommends he be placed in a home without small children. He's mastered his house-training etiquette. He has been vaccinated and neutered. Texas is a special needs pet, so please inquire about his specific care requirements.

Notes from Texas' caretakers:

Texas is a great, fun dog. He has become a little more shy in the shelter setting and is very cautious when meeting new people. He needs someone to help build his confidence and he will be a great dog. As a typical terrier, he needs something to do or he will find something to do on his own.

Liz, pit bull terrier

Liz is a darling female pit bull terrier dog being kept at 4 R Friends.

Liz gets along well with other dogs. She is looking for a cat-free household. She is already house-trained. Liz is spayed, and she has all her shots.

Liz's current caretakers say:

Want a snuggle buddy? Liz is your girl! She would love to be spoiled in a warm and cozy home. While recuperating from her spay surgery in a foster home, Liz has been playing well with the other foster dog and enjoying the comforts of a home. The two pups love playing tug-o-war and chase each other in the yard. Liz will give you a “high-five” for treats and takes them gently. If you’re a fast walker, Liz will be right there with you since she just walks and doesn’t bother with lots of sniffing. Her confidence allows her to walk by any noises and other dogs easily. And when you’re ready to relax she will snuggle on the sofa next to you and crawl under your covers in bed.

Wilbur, cocker spaniel mix

Wilbur is a sweet male cocker spaniel mix in the care of NorCal Cocker Rescue.

No other pets please: Wilbur is looking for forever home without other dogs or cats. NorCal Cocker Rescue recommends that Wilbur be placed in a home without small children. He has all of his shots, and he is neutered. Fear not: He's already house-trained. Wilbur is a special needs pet, so please inquire about his specific care requirements.

Wilbur's current caretakers say:

Wilbur is amazing and without being told, you would not know he was blind and deaf. Wilbur manages his world with ease and confidence. Wilbur does not like other dogs getting in his face, so he would not do well in a home with energetic, active dogs. He loves to chew on nylabones and is great in the car. Wilbur would absolutely love to just lay in your lap and make you feel as though you are the most special person on Earth.

Stella, pit bull terrier

Stella is a female pit bull terrier dog in the care of Almost Home 4ever.

No other dogs, please: Stella is looking for a dog-free home. She's already spayed and vaccinated. She's also house-trained.

Here's what Stella's friends at Almost Home 4ever think of her:

She is very sweet, super smart and overall an easy, good dog. Stella is not a barker. She has medium energy — good for a family that wants an adult dog and skip through the puppy potty training stage. Stella walks really well on the leash and is very easy to redirect. She would do great in a home with older children. Stella is super friendly with everyone she's met, leans in for scratches and affection, prances when she sees kids and has impressive zoomies and somersault skills! She has the most beautiful coat that is so soft! Stella should be a only dog in a home because she is alpha. But she can have dog friends.

Gracie, bichon frise

Gracie is a female bichon frise dog being kept at Almost Home 4ever.

Gracie's happy to keep company with cats and dogs. Her vaccinations are up to date, and she is spayed. Good news: she's already house-trained.

Notes from Gracie's current caretakers:

Gracie is 14 years young, loves going for walks, but also loves relaxing around the house. Gracie has gotten along nicely with the resident dogs in her foster home. She is housebroken and walks great on leash. Gracie has had positive interactions with kids of all ages, but can get a little grumpy if poked or handled improperly, so older or dog-savvy kids are recommended. Gracie is current on all vaccines, spayed and eats Urinary SO food prescribed by her doctor as she had a previous UTI, but has had no issues since she's been on the SO kibble. She has lost some of her hearing with her age, but does listen if you speak up. Her previous owner says the one bad habit she has is that she gets into the garbage, so we are looking for a family that can accommodate by having the garbage tucked away in a cabinet or pantry. Gracie would love to find a family for her golden years.
