Big Mac, Boerboel mix

Big Mac is a lovable male Boerboel mix in the care of California Pit Bull Rescue.

Big Mac is a social butterfly, and he'll get along great with your other dogs. He's already neutered and vaccinated. No need to worry: He is already house-trained, too. 

From Big Mac's current caretaker:

Meet Big Mac! This big lovebug is such a sweet fella. He is currently fostered with two big dogs and doing well with them. Mac is blind in one eye, but nothing seems to get this fella down. He is learning basic manners in the home, along with crate-training. Mac joined our pack walk and did well being around lots of dogs and people. He would do well living in a home with kids and is ready to be a part of a family for adventures and lots of movie nights.

Rocket, terrier mix

Rocket is a handsome male terrier mix currently housed at East Bay SPCA - Oakland Adoption Center.

He's already been neutered.

Notes from Rocket's caretakers:

Rocket is always ready to launch a doggy joke or to tug on a stray shoelace, because he is a true goofball. Don't let those big, dark, innocent eyes or the gloriously fluffy cream-and-white coat fool you. This is a happy-all-the-time, silly-most-of-the-time pet, perpetually looking for someone who loves to laugh and play around. Just bring along your great sense of humor and maybe a squeaky toy and spend some silly-time with him. He's definitely a dog on a mission to please you.
