About Puma

Puma is a 3-year-old stud muffin! After being adopted a few months ago, Puma was, sadly, returned to us. Since being adopted and then returned to us, his confidence has taken a pretty major hit, making him very nervous and untrusting of strangers. We don’t know much about what happened during his 2 month-long adoption, but we do know that he endured several significant and stressful changes in a very short time and learned that to deal with scary situations, he can be scary himself to back people off. Puma is NOT aggressive and he doesn’t want to hurt anyone; he just needs to re-learn how to cope and relax in uncomfortable situations. His current foster is doing an AMAZING job helping Puma and we’re confident that with continued training and the right family, Puma will be back to his happy-go-lucky self in no time! We just have to find a patient, loving family willing to put in the effort that Puma deserves to get him there. Puma LOVES balls! He’ll fetch and even drop the ball for you. He also tears toys apart, but won’t eat the stuffing. He goes into his crate with no issues, especially when you tell him to “hit the hay” and once he warms up to you, he LOVES to cuddle and give kisses! One of his favorite things is to have his belly rubbed. Please help us get sweet Puma into a safe, loving forever home!

***FOSTER OR ADOPTER NEEDED ASAP*** Hi, my name is Berry! 🐶 I’m 5 years-old and have lived almost my entire life tied up to a 3 foot chain that has left a permanent scar on my neck. 😔Every year I had to endure the cold and hot weather without any protection from the elements. Life has been rough, but I finally got a break when my owner died. Unfortunately, that was short-lived because the people that took me in didn’t have the patience I needed to adjust from living on a chain my whole life. I heard them talk about euthanizing me, but instead I landed in the shelter where I was even more terrified and confined for two weeks in a 2x4 cell. 💔 Luckily, Passion for Pitties came to my rescue. I’m now finally getting a chance at a great life and the guidance I need to finally find a loving home. 💕 I’m currently staying in a boarding facility and a P4P volunteer comes by often to take me on walks. I really enjoy being out on walks and receiving treats but I would love it even more if I had my own loving family and home to come back to. Can you please consider giving me a chance? 😇 Please help us get sweet Berry into a safe, loving forever home!

Meet uber-handsome 7 year-old Buck! 😍 Buck is a rescue favorite who is sadly returning to us for the second time. Sometimes despite everyone’s best efforts, it’s just not the right fit, so we’re determined to find his perfect match and make this his LAST forever home. 💙 Buck loves people and does well with large, submissive, dog-friendly female dogs. 🐶 Cats, small dogs and animals, and babies are a no-go for Buck 🚫 but he does amazing with older kids (12+)! His favorite pastimes are chewing on bones and toys, playing ball, and goofing off outside. He is very mellow when at home and likes to lay his head down on his foster dad’s lap. He sleeps right through the night without any fuss. He knows all his basic commands and is potty-trained and crate-trained. Thank you in advance for your interest in our Buck! Please help us get Buck into a safe, loving forever home! If you're unable to help by adopting, sharing this post or donating is always appreciated.

*FOSTER or ADOPTER NEEDED ASAP* Hi everyone! My name is Bunny! I am a 6 month-old puppy that came into the shelter as a stray and no one has come to claim me yet. 😔 I’m super sweet and have been very friendly with the staff...I just want to be loved! 💖 I have a fracture that didn’t heal properly, so I am in need of a medical procedure ASAP. The shelter dogtor thinks I’ll probably lose a leg, but that’s ok...I’ll still be happy, healthy, and back to dancing 💃 on only three legs in no time! I have to hurry up and get out of the shelter before anything can be done about my leg, so it’d be super awesome if a special foster or forever family could take me home with them right away! I am great with other dogs, with proper introductions of course. Not sure about cats since I have never met one! Would probably do well around children given my charming demeanor, also with proper introductions. Please help us get sweet Bunny into a safe, loving forever home!

Hello everyone! My name is Etta and I am a sweet loving 8 year-old Pittie! My name is Etta and I listen pretty well when my name is called. I’ve had plenty of experience with puppies of my own. Because of this, I am very CARING of my 2 ½ year old foster brother Dallas. He and I gently play together a few times a day, often times playing tug-o-war with the toys, which I am perfectly fine with sharing. If I am done playing before Dallas is, I gently start to tell him I’m over him and may even voice it a little bit, but never get aggressive. I LOVE to sleep on my fluffy bed next to my foster mom while she works during the day. We have a routine down to where if I get up, I typically need to go pee and as long as she listens, I don’t have any accidents in the house. Plus, I have a nice size yard to play in and get lots of exercise there. Walks are great too and will typically listen when told to ignore something, but I do get excited when I see someone or another pup that I want to play with. So, I am working on that! I also love my 17 year-old human foster brother. He will play with me and pet me and let me give him all kinds of kisses! We all usually have play time outside in the evening til we are all pooped out. I even like to lay on my Human Foster Brother and sit on his lap. I don’t get on the couch or beds unless you ask me to. When its bedtime, I will go into my crate no problem and sleep there through the night. It’s nice and cozy! Oh, I also love to go on car rides! We go at least once or twice per day. Starbucks trips for puppaccinos are my FAVORITE! I will climb up into the car no problem, but sometimes need assistance with getting out. I do have a tumor on my back leg, which will be getting removed in August. It doesn’t really bother me much, but it does get in the way of things. For the most part, I’m a pretty chill girl that loves to be by my foster mom’s side. I do bark a bit when I hear noises outside that indicates someone might be there, but I just want to make sure everyone is safe! Other than that, I do howl and bark a little when I want attention or when she leaves me at home, but will eventually settle down. I am looking forward to meeting you and getting my forever home!

Hey friends! I'm Hercules! I recently found my way from the streets into this shelter. ⛺The wonderful people from the rescue were kind enough to pull me from the shelter and now I spend my days with my lovely foster mom. Even though I am still learning to be gentle and that I am bigger than I think, I love all humans! But I do prefer the older ones, teenagers and older that is, because I don't realize that I am super strong 💪😉. I always show when I am excited because I have a cute wiggly butt and I shake it like a Polaroid picture! I do love going for walks and I am also getting better every time about listening to the human walking with me. After my initial excitement of the walk, I will be right with you! Sometimes I will jump up and I use whatever I can to get your attention, but I am working on that too, because I am a big guy and I am being told not all humans like a giant lap dog! I do also tend to be vocal when I'm playing, but I'm just so excited 😊 and I want you to know that! I know how to sit and I know down, I also like getting treats when I do things right! But I prefer if you set the treat on the ground or toss it my way! When I meet new dogs, I like to learn a LOT about them, so I do need help learning how to meet new dogs properly. Can you help me do that? I love them, but I think because I am big, I kind of scare them a little bit. 😅 Please help us get Hercules into a safe, loving forever home!

🆘 ADOPTER OR FOSTER NEEDED ASAP - needs exit by MARCH 4TH!!! 🆘 This uber-handsome boy is 2 year-old Jasper! Jasper is in desperate need of a hero and we only have until MARCH 4TH to find them. 🙏 Shelter staff noticed blood in Jasper’s urine when he arrived and upon further inspection, they found that it’s likely a result of an enlarged and inflamed prostate. The cause of his enlarged prostate is currently unknown and he seems happy and healthy otherwise, but we all know that animals with medical concerns do not last long in shelter environments, 💔 so we need to get him out ASAP! Jasper is a total cutie pie and loves showing off his red dinosaur! To see him and his little buddy in action, check out his shelter video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hK0wIRFviQg&feature=youtu.be. Unfortunately, he doesn’t seem to have had much prior training or attention from wherever he came from, ☹so he gets super excited when he gets the chance to see people and the stress of the shelter is making him highly excitable around dogs. Due to his medical issues, proper dog intros haven’t been done yet, but the shelter feels that he’d do best in a home without small children or other animals until he decompresses and/or can be evaluated by a trainer outside of the shelter environment. 💙 Please please PLEASE help Jasper! We want to find him the PAWFECT family who will give him all the love and attention he deserves. 😍 Please help us get sweet Jasper into a safe, loving forever home!

Hello everyone! My name is Kenny and am a SUPER handsome stud! I wound up at the Chula Vista Animal Care Facility because sadly my human family decided they no longer wanted to care for me. I’m not sure why, since I would never abandon them! The wonderful people at Passion For Pitties were so kind to pull me from the shelter and now I spend my days with my lovely foster family. My foster is still getting to know me, but I have settled in quite nicely since arriving home. Below is a little bit more about me: • I’m approximately 9 years old. • Weigh in at a svelte 90 pounds. • Overall my demeanor is quite calm and I’m very well behaved. • LOVE people and am a crowd favorite whenever I’m out in public! • Enjoy nothing more than spending time with my foster family and soaking up their AFFECTION! I will cry if we are not together. Who would have thought that a big guy like me would? • GREAT with all dogs, big and small. However, don’t like it when bigger dogs show aggression towards me. • I’m adventurous and always up for a car ride! • Going for walks is another favorite activity. • Am potty-trained and know some basic commands like “sit” and “down/off.” Also know “go to bed.”:) Please help us get sweet Kenny into a safe, loving forever home!

This beautiful gal is Lottie. We busted out Lottie from Chula Vista for an adoption event and were able to get her into a foster home so she can learn to thrive! Now she is looking for her furever home 🐾 Lottie is a huge snuggler and loves to give kisses. 😘 She loves going for walks and playing tug-o-war with her foster parents. And she is really good a tug-o-war! She is a spry puppy who is still young and wants to play all the time! So much so, that she sometimes annoys her foster brother who doesn’t want to play as much. And since she is still only 1, she is eager to learn from her humans about boundaries with people and other dogs (she love all dogs and humans!). Lottie-girl is very smart at her young age. She already knows how to sit, stay, lay down AND give paw, with treat rewards of course. 😉 She does love her walks, but she is still learning to not be so excited and lead from the front. She is a strong girl, so she is being taught to not pull so much on the leash, but we think with the training her foster parents are doing, as well as becoming more mature, she will be walking nicely in no time next to whomever handles her! Lottie is a shy girl at first, but with patience from you, she will warm up quickly and give you all the love! Her ideal furever family would be a calm bunch, not very loud. She does seem to get upset easily with sudden noises and movements. But she is a very curious gal about all humans and is open to giving anyone a chance to love on her! 😍 Please help us get sweet Lottie into a safe, loving forever home!
