Trixie, American Staffordshire terrier and English bulldog mix

Trixie is a darling female American Staffordshire terrier and English bulldog mix staying at California Pit Bull Rescue.

Trixie gets along well with other dogs. Her ideal forever home would be a cat-free environment. Trixie will do best in a home without small children. Trixie is spayed, and she has all her shots. Fear not: She's already house-trained.

Here's what Trixie's friends at California Pit Bull Rescue think of her:

Meet Trixie, the silliest bully girl you’ll ever know. She wants nothing more than to make you laugh with her silly disposition and contagious smile. She is an exceedingly clever goofball who enjoys learning tricks, chewing on bones, taking walks around the neighborhood and playing with friends. She would make an excellent play companion for the right canine friend.

Fizbo, Boston terrier

Fizbo is a sweet male Boston terrier dog staying at Hopalong Animal Rescue.

Fizbo is happy to keep company with cats and dogs. His vaccinations are up to date, and he is neutered.

Fizbo's current caretakers say:

Fizbo is very sweet and he loves all people. He’s a tiny bit nudgy with other dogs but gets social cues quickly when they tell him to back off, so not a big deal. He’d love a buddy to play with. He likes other dogs and doesn’t react to them on a leash. He’s fine with cats too and takes cues from them as well. He’s oddly not a lapdog. But I think that may be unfamiliar to him and he may become one. He definitely loves people.

Dreamy, poodle mix

Dreamy is a female poodle mix being kept at Hopalong Animal Rescue.

Dreamy loves other dogs. Dreamy is already spayed, and she has all her shots.

More from Dreamy:

I'm two years old, super social, love people, fine around dogs and overall very chill. If you're looking for a sweet girl, I'm it. I'm not 100% housebroken, but I know I can learn fast.

Sassafras, terrier mix

Sassafras is a female terrier mix being kept at Hopalong Animal Rescue.

She already has all of her shots, and she is spayed.

Notes from Sassafras:

I'm excited for a new life. I'm a super sweet girl that loves to play. I can be a little shy initially but warm up really fast. I think I'm best in a home with older kids as I'm a little too energetic and can knock a little kid down. I'd be a great hiking dog and someone fun to hang out with. I'd love a home to continue learning things and someone that can teach me all the best manners.

Hubba Bubba, rottweiler mix

Hubba Bubba is a handsome male rottweiler mix in the care of Hopalong Animal Rescue.

Hubba Bubba is happy to keep company with other dogs. He is neutered, and he has all his shots.

More from Hubba Bubba:

Being that I’ve been a yard dog, I’m looking for a family that can teach me how to be in a loving home. I am not a good apartment dog and must go into a home with access to a yard. I get anxiety when I can't go out and chill. I lived in a yard, but did have a family with kids and I loved them. Maybe I could be that special dog in your life?
