Interested in adopting a pet — or just looking at some delightful doggies up for adoption? There are dozens of deserving 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.

Milo, American Staffordshire terrier
Milo is a darling male American Staffordshire terrier being cared for at California Pit Bull Rescue.
Milo loves other dogs, but he will do best in a home without small children. He is already neutered and vaccinated. Fear not: He is already house-trained, too.
From Milo's current caretaker:
He came in with his friend Simba, a 10-year-old golden retriever who is currently residing with Norcal Golden Retriever Rescue. Milo is a very affectionate and loving four to five-year-old American Bully (58%), American Bulldog (42%) mix but can be shy when meeting new people. Playing ball is a must, and he is very fast and agile.

Bo, pit bull terrier
Bo is a male pit bull terrier staying at California Pit Bull Rescue.
Bo is nothing if not a family dog, and children will love him. However, his ideal forever home would be a cat-free environment. He is already house-trained, neutered and vaccinated.
Here's what Bo's friends at California Pit Bull Rescue think of him:
Bo hasn't been introduced to other dogs because his owner didn't know how he would react, so he's just been a house dog. He just loves affection and sleeping anywhere near you. Bo's current owner can no longer care for him, so he's in search of a new forever home. Bo has lived with three daughters and would do well living in a home with kids.
