Interested in adopting a pet — or just taking a peek 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.

(Details like pet availability, training, vaccinations and other features are based on data provided by Petfinder and may be subject to change; contact the shelter for the latest information.)

Malicai, pit bull terrier and cattle dog mix

Malicai is a sweet male pit bull terrier and cattle dog mix currently housed at California Pit Bull Rescue.

Malicai gets along well with other dogs. His ideal forever home would be a cat-free environment. California Pit Bull Rescue, however, recommends he be placed in a home without small children. Malicai has already had all of his shots, and he is neutered. He has mastered his house-training etiquette.

Notes from Malicai's caretakers:

Malicai can be pretty shy when he first meets new people, but he warms up quickly. He is extremely treat-motivated and loves to please. His favorite activity is going for walks.

Diva, pit bull terrier mix

Diva is a female pit bull terrier mix in the care of California Pit Bull Rescue.

Diva loves other dogs. Her ideal forever home would be a cat-free environment. Diva would prefer a home without small children. No need to worry: She is already house-trained. Diva is spayed, and she has had all her shots.

Here's what Diva's friends at California Pit Bull Rescue think of her:

Diva can be shy and uncomfortable with people she doesn't know and may bark at unfamiliar people, but she mostly tends to move away when unsure. She's shown fear toward toddlers and may do best with older children. If Diva is given space and time to warm up, she relaxes quickly and is interested in interacting.

Riley, pit bull terrier mix

Riley is a female pit bull terrier mix currently housed at East Bay SPCA-Oakland Adoption Center.

From Riley's current caretaker:

Riley loves exercise! Her "let's go" lifestyle will keep you motivated to get outside and move. She'll run for miles, chase a ball for hours and still want to play at the end of the day.
