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.

Copper is a handsome male beagle dog currently housed at California Pit Bull Rescue.
Copper loves to socialize — he loves other dogs. He's mastered his house-training etiquette. He already has had all of his shots, and he is neutered.
Notes from Copper's caretakers:
He was left in the backyard 24/7 and he sure did not deserve that kind of life! We are going to find him a fantastic home to live his Golden years in and to finally get to be a part of a real family. He cannot wait! He loves to go for walks and he gets along with other doggies. He has great energy and loves to be funny and he even does mini zoomies when he is happy.

She is a wheaten terrier mix girl that is 1-2 years old. She was rescued from a high-kill shelter with her five puppies she now deserves her second chance at a forever home. She gets along with other dogs and people. She likes toys but she is definitely more on the calm side.
