Robert, Yorkshire terrier
Robert is a charming male Yorkshire terrier dog currently housed at Chows Plus.
Robert is looking for a home without small children. Robert is neutered, and he has had all his shots. He's already house-trained.
Notes from Robert's caretakers:
Meet lil Yorkie boy Robert! He is a five-year-old cutie pie. Robert weighs about 12 pounds and is in need of a forever home of his very own. He would do well as the only dog with someone who can give him the attention he deserves. He is not a backyard dog, but needs a home where he will be part of the family.

Spirit, Labrador retriever and border collie mix
Spirit is a female Labrador retriever and border collie mix currently residing at Sacramento SPCA.
Spirit has had all her shots.
Here's more from Spirit:
My name is Spirit and I am 10 years old. I lived with dogs in my previous home but may be selective with a new dog friend. I also lived with cats in my previous home. Due to my size, age and personality, I'm a better fit for homes with teens/adults.

Patty, pit bull terrier mix
Patty is a lovable female pit bull terrier mix being kept at Sacramento SPCA.
Patty's current caretakers say:
Patty is an excitable, playful soul who is looking to find an equal partner in crime. As an independent adult, Patty was used to being outside for most of her young life and would love someone to show her all the cuddles/love she's been missing. Of course, we can't forget about her treats and favorite little toys she so much enjoys. Because of her full size and excited behavior, we think she'd best fit in a home without small dogs.

Pip, dachshund and Jack Russell terrier mix
Pip is a male dachshund and Jack Russell terrier mix being cared for at Sacramento SPCA.
Pip gets along well with cats. He's already been neutered.
Here's what Pip's friends at Sacramento SPCA think of him:
Sweet Pip has been partially paralyzed since he was a puppy. But don't feel sorry for this happy little guy, he doesn't know there is anything special about him. Pip has a wheelchair that he loves going for walks in, but most of the time, he's content to cuddle with you without his wheels. He has lived with cats and kids in the past, and while he does not have a history of living with dogs, would likely be okay with a doggy friend that respects his space. Pip does have a few special needs as his new family will need to express his bladder several times a day.
