My Story

Adoption Pending. You can see more of these beautiful dogs by clicking on Rescue Dogs.

Sweet Cali is hoping for a furever home in time for the holidays! Prior to coming into rescue, this lovely girl was living on the streets with her injured brother, and she did everything she could to make sure her brother was not left behind. Now that Cali's brother is on the mend, Cali is ready for a lovely family of her own! Cali has settled in nicely into her foster home, and is thoroughly enjoying being pampered in every pawssible way. Cali has already caught up on some basic cues, and is quick to pick up other house manners and/or regular household routines like a smart cookie :) This gentle girl is an excellent playmate, and she will definitely thrive in a home with a sibling or two. Being a young girl, Cali will benefit from regular enrichment activities that keep both her physical and mental health in tip-top shape. This young girl has the sweetest pyrsonality and is essentially the poster child of a gentle giant - she is loving and nurturing to all the human youngsters she has met. If you open your heart and your home to Cali, we are pawsitive that this girl has the pawtential to be the "heart dog" you have been looking for your whole life!

Our goal is to assess every application on its own merits. Key considerations are: 1) the experience of the applicant with large breed dogs 2) children in the household or regularly visiting the household are ready for a large-breed dog who is a guardian by nature and 3) the sex of other dogs currently residing in the household to avoid same-sex aggression issues. For puppies under six months old, the applicant’s ability to socialize the puppy with older dogs is a priority.
