Personality: Badger is a lovely boy who has done well with other dogs and loves meeting new people. Badger was doing really well with house training in his foster home. She would use an exercise pen for when he was not being monitored which helped. He is fine spending time alone and amusing himself, but he does well with good exercise beforehand. He loves adults and children. His foster said that he knows "go to your room" as a crate command and that he waits nicely for his treat once going in. We have been working on "off" as he likes to put his paws up on people but he is excited and he has not fully mastered it yet.History: Badger came to us from another shelter then spent some time in a foster home with two small dogs.Dog/Cat skills: Badger can be uncomfortable meeting new dogs initially. He does best with calm, polite dogs that can help him adjust at his own pace. He has been a great buddy for my two small dogs and was reactive only when there was a fence between him and a neighbor dog. He has not been around cats.Medical: This dog has some changes in the enamel layer of his teeth. Enamel is the hard white coating of teeth that makes them strong and healthy. He may have poor enamel quality due to a congenital condition (he was born with this tendency) or due to exposure to a medication or a virus when he was very young. The poor enamel will make him more prone to dental disease. He had 2 incisors (front teeth) removed due to crown fractures.Brushing the teeth daily with a soft toothbrush and toothpaste designed for pets will significantly improve this dog's dental health and possibly his general health in the future. However, he is likely to require veterinary dental care throughout his lifetime. The adopting family is encouraged to discuss continuing dental care for this patient with their family veterinarian or a veterinary dentist.Ready to meet Badger?

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 ?

Personality: Gary is a little guy with a big personality! He likes to zoom around and loves to cuddle. He gets chilly so he's happy to wear a sweater and his foster mom has given him a little wardrobe. He likes other dogs, cats and even kids and he doesn't take up much space. He is so excited to go into a home that will give him all the love and attention he deserves! He goes potty consistently on the pee pads and responds to going outside when his foster says "go pee-pee". He sleeps in his xpen and is quiet throughout the night. He's only been left alone an hour or so and my own dog has been with him. His foster thinks he could be left alone for up to 4 hours without barking/whining. Gary is very eager to meet new people and allowed his foster's little grandson to walk him on a leash. He's very trainable and loving. He hasn't had the benefit of formal training since we were working on potty training first, but he's a smart little guy. He likes to give "kisses" by licking.History: Gary's been living in a foster home with dogs, cats, and has been around his foster's grandson and done well. Dog/Cat Skills: Gary loves other dogs and cats and wants to play with them. Leash Skills: Gary walks well on leash.Medical: Gary has LEFT hip dysplasia. Fortunately, at this time, there is no evidence of osteoarthritis in his hips on x-ray. While at HSSV, this dog has been receiving a glucosamine joint supplement and pain medication as needed. These medications will likely be needed for the rest of his life. Please see your regular veterinarian regarding the best treatment options for him.Gary arrived at HSSV with a large unhaired scar over the top of his head. At this time the skin appears free from infection or inflammation. We recommend that his adopter use dog sunscreen (available through pet stores and online retailers) to protect this vulnerable area from sun exposure when he is outdoors for extended periods of time- dogs, just like humans can develop sunburns on exposed skin.He has a little "go bag" of his harness, leash, and clothes to go home with him!

Personality: Happy Gilmore is named for his super social and wiggly, excitable demeanor. He loves meeting new people but is still learning to not go overboard with his excitement (my human friend give me treats when I greet them like a gentleman and keep my paws on the floor). He is often so wiggly that he hurt his tail from wagging it too hard! Happy is looking for a family that is active and would love to take him on long walks and runs regularly. He would also benefit from a family that can guide him in his manners and learn to be calm. Happy is very food and tennis ball motivated so he aims to please! Happy loves to play fetch and it's a great way to tire him out. In his down time he LOVES to cuddle up with his friends. History: He came to us from the central valley. Dog/Cat Skills: Happy participates in playgroup daily. He often explores the yard and engages in chase play. He has shown a discomfort with more rowdy, physical, or forward behavior. He can also become overly excited with vocal play. Happy best with social, calm, tolerant dogs who can greet and play politely. Happy has shown hyper focus and willingness to chase cats. Leash Skills: Happy pulls while walking on a leash and would benefit from the use of a front clipping harness. He has shown some barrier and leash frustration with dogs displaying tense behavior. We are working on this by redirecting him with treats or toys. Medical: Happy arrived at HSSV with trauma to the tip of his tail. Due to his habit of wagging his tail vigorously and hitting the walls with the tip of his tail, he repeatedly traumatized the tip of the tail until it became devitalized. He had also caused painful sores along the sides on the last 3rd of his tail from wagging it against walls. To treat his wounds and relieve his pain, it was necessary to amputate a portion of his tail. He is recovering and healing from the surgery very well. Happy is also healing from ear infections that are currently being treated. "Ready to meet Happy Gilmore?

Personality: Jax is very loving and playful. If he wasn't 80 pounds he'd be a lap dog - he likes to drape the top half of his body across his person when he needs a hug. He doesn't get on furniture, doesn't chew anything but his toys, and even returns a tennis ball to you after he's retrieved it. In his foster home, he has shown to be extremely well trained. He knows all the usual commands and obeys them immediately. He even knows "go to bed" (and complies). He is perfectly house trained, and if you ask him if he wants to go potty and he does, he runs around in circles to let you know. When he is off-leash in an enclosed space, he returns to me immediately when I call him. Jax's foster parent lives alone, and Jax did bark a few times at visitors but once he sniffed them and saw they were friendly he was perfectly fine with them. History: Jax was surrendered to HSSV due to a change in the owner's living situation. Dog Skills: Jax can be reactive (barking, growling, pulls on leash) when he sees dogs. Adopters should be educated on managing this behavior including focus exercises, walking low traffic routes, and controlled interactions with appropriate dog matches. He would do best in a low traffic neighborhood. He may do best as an only dog due to his bossy demeanor. We highly recommend Jax has managed exposure and interactions with very tolerant and social dogs where he can learn appropriate interactions. Jax should not be taken to a dog park or left off-leash around other dogs. Cats Skills: Jax has not yet met a cat in his foster home but he hasn't minded the squirrels or birds in the back yard. He was quite excited when our local possum was on the fence!Leash Skills: Jax LOVES his walks. He's quite the sniffer so we don't cover a lot of ground quickly. I'm not a runner but he would probably be very happy to run with a human companion.Medical: Jax has a condition called allergic dermatitis or atopy. With this condition, Jax has allergies to common things in his environment such as pollens, grasses, dust mites, etc. As a response to these allergies, dogs with this condition tend to develop itchy skin and ear infections. We're managing this with medicated baths.Some of his adoption fee has been sponsored by the Mack family and he has a training scholarship funded by The Pedigree Foundation.Ready to meet Jax?
