Personality: Ari can be a little shy at first, but warms up quickly. She will become to a velcro dog to her person and wants to be by your side at all times. She absolutely loves to cuddle and insists that she sleep in the bed with you. She rides in the crate nicely in the car but when it comes to sleeping accommodations she is the ultimate bed time snuggler and prefers the bed. She is a total lap dog and would be a great emotional support dog with her mellow personality. She does show sings of stress when left alone so it's recommended she works on leave alone training. She doesn't know how to walk on leash yet and prefers to be carried, or to ride in her doggy pouch for long walks.History: Ari has lived in an adult foster home that is quiet, with 3 other small chihuahuas. She is a peaceful co-exister and really enjoys the company of other polite small dogs. She will correct a more forward or larger dogs so the best match for her would be another older quiet dogs who will respect her space. Ari is overwhelmed with children and should go to a quiet adult household.Dog/Cat Skills: Ari is very social in play group and will happily go up to meet other dogs. If a dog is too forward with her she will let them know she is uncomfortable by giving a small correction. She doesn't love to share laps with other dogs but she does enjoy laying next to them on the couch. Ari has seen a few outdoor cats and will bark at them. She seems more afraid of the cats than anything because they are bigger than her.Leash Skills: Ari has not learned to walk on a leash. In foster took a few weeks to bond before she would follow on leash.She should only learn leash walking in a very quiet area. Will pull backwards out of collar if uncomfortable. It is recommended she wear a martingale collar or soft harness to avoid slipping out of collar. She LOVES to be carried, it is her preferred method of transportation. For long walks she loves to ride in her dog pouch (Which her foster is sending home with her).Medical: Ari had a dental cleaning recently at HSSV. The teeth were evaluated for fractures, and periodontal disease. Teeth that were determined to be unhealthy were removed. Ari likely has a medical condition called chronic bronchitis. This means that she has chronic inflammation of the airways of her lungs. Currently, the bronchitis is causing enough coughing that she is receiving an oral steroid to help alleviate the coughing. She is responding well to this treatment and this condition is usually well controlled with steroids or other medications prescribed by your family veterinarian. Minimizing irritants in the air is always helpful to a dog with bronchitis. We recommend not to allow cigarette smoke in the dog's environment and to regularly replace air filters at home.Ready to meet Ari ?

Personality: Beckett is an athletic, energetic dog who is looking for a dog savvy home that is just as athletic as he is. He can be a little tentative in new places and can be sensitive to invasive handling, but with some time and space to settle in, he warms up quickly. His future family should be familiar with dog body language and reading his signals to help him slowly build confidence. He loves to have access to a yard where he gets more space to meet people, but he likes long walks, runs, and hikes even better! He would do best in an adult household with experience around working breeds like him. History: Beckett came to HSSV as a stray.Dog/Cat Skills: Beckett has participated in dog playgroup. He can be forward in greets, and has shown to be social and playful with female dogs. He has not met any males yet. Beckett has shown hyper focus on cats. Adopters should be familiar with breed tendencies. Leash Skills: Beckett can pull on leash, but needs time to get comfortable before being harnessed. He walks okay on leash once he can get some energy out. Beckett is eager to meet dogs, and can become excited and vocal when he sees them. We are working on this by redirecting him with treats and happy talk. Ready to meet Beckett? Primary Color: Tri Color Weight: 53 Age: 2yrs 0mths 0wks show less

Personality: Sweet Calvin likes to follow you around and curl up next to you on the couch and bed. He has his favorite blanket that he likes when he is in his crate or not on the couch or bed. He cringes when you reach for him so you need to approach him slowly. He will paw at his foster's leg when he wants attention. He loves to explore the yard and roll around on the grass and scratch his back. He is housetrained and crate trained. He does not like a lot of noise and will hide if he gets stressed.History: Calvin has been living in a house with 4 senior dogs and one adult. He has not been around children.Dog/Cat skills: Calvin is good at meeting dogs and will usually just ignore them. His only focus is on you. He has not been around cats or other small animals.Leash Skills: He is leash trained and likes to go for walks.Medical: Calvin had a dental cleaning recently at HSSV. At that time the patient was anesthetized and all the teeth were cleaned with an ultrasonic scaler to remove tartar and plaque. The teeth were then polished to prevent premature tartar build-up. The teeth were evaluated for fractures and periodontal disease. Teeth that were determined to be unhealthy were removed. Dental care is an on-going process that will need to be addressed for the life of this patient. The adopting family is encouraged to discuss continuing dental care for this patient with their family veterinarian or a veterinary dentist.Ready to meet Calvin ?

Personality: Comet is a fun, energetic, playful & goofy boy. He is very social and is wiggly when meeting new people. He likes the outdoors and enjoys going on long walks and runs. He would benefit from daily physical and mental exercise. He would do well with a family that has some herding breed experience. He also loves going to the beach and playing in the sand. As energetic as he is, Comet also loves to curl up and relax with you. He is very intelligent and easy to train. He picks up commands quickly and is already good with the basics. Comet did well in his foster home with a routine potty schedule. He also did well getting left alone when provided exercises and had his bed and chew toys to keep him occupied. My care has been sponsored by Pallavi Akella!History: Comet came to us from the central valley. Dog Skills/Cat Skills: Comet does try to greet every dog he meets, but can be too forward. Comet tends to be vocal and bossy in play with dogs, and may target/pick on less confident dogs. Comet does enjoy chase and physical contact play, but does not always listen to corrections. He has shown to do best with females and social, polite playful dogs who can tolerate his very vocal, pushy play style. No history with cats but adopters should be aware of breed tendencies.Leash Skills: Comet pulls while walking on a leash and would benefit from the use of a front clipping harness.

Personality: Frank Sinatra is a charming, friendly, social kitty who loves getting showered with attention. He is made of pure love so don't let his grumpy face fool you! He loves to snuggle and sit on laps. He also enjoys wand toys and laying in sunspots in his room. History: Frank came to us as a stray.Cat/Dog Skills: Frank has not been exposed to dogs while in our care and had no reactions at the sight of other cats. He has not been cohoused, however. Medical: Frank may have a flea allergy, which means that the pet is allergic to flea bites. Pets with this condition can develop very itchy skin and hair loss even when they only have a few fleas. While at HSSV, this pet has been treated with monthly flea prevention, such as Advantage or Frontline. The new adopters are advised to keep up with monthly flea prevention in order to control this possible flea allergy. If monthly flea control alone is not controlling the skin condition, the adopting family is advised to consult their family veterinarian for further treatment options.Frank had a dental cleaning recently at HSSV. At that time the patient was anesthetized and all the teeth were cleaned with an ultrasonic scaler to remove tartar and plaque. The teeth were then polished to prevent premature tartar build-up. The teeth were evaluated for fractures and periodontal disease. Teeth that were determined to be unhealthy were removed. Dental care is an on-going process that will need to be addressed for the life of this patient. The adopting family is encouraged to discuss continuing dental care for this patient with their family veterinarian or a veterinary dentist.Ready to meet me ?
