Interested in adopting a pet — or just taking a peek at some delightful doggies up for adoption? There are dozens of great dogs up for adoption at animal shelters in and around Oakland.
Animal shelters and pet rescue groups work hard to care for unhoused pets and connect them to loving homes. Hoodline used data from Petfinder to power this roundup of dogs currently available for adoption.

Bug, American Bully
Bug is a male American Bully dog staying at California Pit Bull Rescue.
Bug plays well with others — he'll get along great with your other dogs, cats and kids. No need to worry: He's already house-trained. Bug is neutered, and he has had all his shots. Bug is a special-needs pet, so please inquire about his specific care requirements.
Notes from Bug's caretakers:
Meet the shorty snorty fella Bug! He's approximately five years old, 62 pounds and a perfect love bug. His original owners surrendered him to a local veterinary clinic because they couldn't pay for emergency kidney stone surgery. He is recovering well, although he will need to be on a special diet to prevent any future issues.

Oh silly Oliver, what can we say about you? Well, Oliver is approximately 30 pounds (full-grown) of adorabullness. He is a cutie patootie that rides well in the car and is crate-trained. Oliver enjoys being around other dogs and would do well living in a home with some playful pups.
