Personality: Angelo is big, lovable guy with a big personality! He's 80lbs of fun and loves to run and play. He's working on his canine manners and would love a big dog experienced home where he can continue to learn and become the best dog he can be. Angelo is energetic and enjoys playing with other social dogs, exploring in the big outdoors, and jogging with his people to keep in shape. One could really say that Angelo has it all.....the striking good looks, lovable personality, and the brains to go with it. A training scholarship has been funded by The Pedigree Foundation HistoryHistory: Angelo came to us from another shelter.Dog/Cat skills: Angelo has been in playgroup and has met many different dogs. He has displayed forward greetings and showed interest in running around in play. He can become too rowdy for some dogs, and does best with social, calm dogs. Angelo has shown high prey drive with cats, and can be hyper focused and too rowdy for small dogs.Leash Skills: Angelo is a large and strong dog who walks well with appropriate walking equipment, like a martingale collar and no pull, front clip harness. Medical: This dog has scarring of his pinnae (ear flaps)that appear consistent with a previous episode of cutaneous vasculitis. Vasculitis is an immune-mediated inflammation of the blood vessel wall that causes decreased blood flow to small patches of skin, resulting in ulceration, crusting, or hair loss at these sites. Currently, Angelo is doing well and not on any medications for this condition. My care has been sponsored by Paul Goyena!"Ready to meet Angelo?

$100 of Archie's adoption fee is sponsored by the Mack family!Personality: Archie is a very sweet and calm boy who loves ear scratches and belly rubs. He is very polite and a great companion. Archie pretty well house-trained but will need to be let out every 2-3 hours. He is great with new people and will warm up to them almost immediately.History: Archie is great with children as well as other animals. He has been living with a child, a teenager, two adults, and another small dog. He is very patient with kids especially younger ones. Although he isn't one to play, he is good with other dogs.Dog/ Cat Skills: Archie is pretty good around other dogs. When meeting new dogs he is very calm. While he has been living with another small dog he has mostly kept to himself. He has seen some garden cats and other small animals around our neighborhood and has barely reacted. He is mostly pretty calm around other animals.Leash Skills: He walks very well on a leash and almost never pulls. He enjoys going on shorter walks as he gets tired pretty easily.Medical: Archie has a significant heart murmur and cardiac enlargement. he has been to a veterinary cardiologist and diagnosed with degenerative mitral valve disease which is a common and age-related disease. His risk of developing congestive heart failure is low to moderate. We have placed him on a cardiac medication designed to improve heart function. The adopting family is strongly advised to have him rechecked every 6 months by a veterinary cardiologist. A monitoring and treatment plan is likely to significantly improve his quality of life and possibly his life-span.Archie has dental disease. This is very common in older dogs and Archie had a dental cleaning while in our care. Any unhealthy teeth were removed. Dental care is an on-going process that will need to be addressed for the remainder of his life. We also noted that Archie has a stiff gait in his rear legs. X-rays show that in the past, he had a fracture of his right hip that has since healed. At this time, he does not appear acutely painful in this leg and we are not recommending treatment at this time. The adopting family is encouraged to discuss this condition with their family veterinarian or a veterinary surgeon to determine the best course of treatment to keep him comfortable.Ready to meet Archie?

Personality: Badger is a very sweet guy who will bond with his people very fast and be your loyal companion. He is an energetic boy and enjoys long walks on beach, hikes and runs. Badger has shown to enjoy a company of a well matched canine companion that can be his buddy so they can navigate life together. Badger is known to have some barrier frustrations and leash reactivity towards unfamiliar dogs that will need to be worked on using positive reinforcement techniques. Badger knows basic commands and is potty trained. Badger has a training scholarship funded by the Pedigree Foundation.History: Badger came to us from another shelter and spent some time in a foster home with two small dogs. He was then adopted for few months where he lived in adult only household with another large male dog.Dog/Cat skills: Badger can be tentative at first when meeting new dogs and he does best with polite, playful canines. Once he knows the dog he will bounce in play, run around and wrestle. He would do best with a canine companion who respects his boundaries, is loose in meeting and likes to play chase.Leash Skills: Badger pulls on leash and would benefit from wearing a 'front-clip' harness. Medical: Badger had a dental in our care. It showed he may have some 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.

Personality: Camille is a playful, energetic, sweet dog but does need guidance and encouragement when meeting new people. While often she can be jumpy and playful, she can also be timid at first with unfamiliar faces and places. Camille is recommended to go to a low-key, experienced, adult home environment that can give her time to adjust and build up her confidence. Once she is comfortable with people, she is wiggly, playful, and very affectionate. Camille is still learning manners and can become mouthy in play with people. She is also very high energy and needs lots of outlets. Camille enjoys long runs and play dates with other dogs to help burn her energy. In fact, Camille would love a play chew buddy for life!

Camille is a strong chewer and needs lots of toy and play outlets for this behavior.Dog Skills: Participates in play group at HSSV regularly. Camille enjoys playing chase and wrestle with other polite, social dogs. She can be initially overwhelmed with more forward or rowdy play, but she has warmed up quickly and loves to play fast and rough with any dog she can.

$50 of the adoption fee is sponsored by the Mack family!Personality: Canela is a sweet, low-key pitty girl. She has been through a lot recently (she was hit by a car that resulted in removing one of her eyes and losing most of the eyesight in the other). But she isn't letting that get her down. Canela happily goes on walks with a handler and other dogs. She enjoys sniffing around and learning how to live her best life even without vision. Each new environment that Canela enters she needs a little time to map out and quickly she is comfortable to roam around without issues.History: Canela came to us from another shelter after she was hit by a car. Dog/Cat skills: Canela has a history of having lived with other dogs. Now that she is learning to navigate her new world by just sounds and smells she can be little tentative around forward dogs at fisrt but she warms up quick and will peacefully co-exist in the same space with other calm and polite dogs. Once settled, she will happily play and follow them around... as best she can. She may benefit from a confident canine role model in the home. We don't have a history on Canela around cats.Leash skills: Canela walks nicely on leash and enjoys slow walks where she can sniff her surroundings. Medical: Blindness. Canela presented with trauma to her head, especially on the left side, and her left eye had to be removed. She also has significant vision impairment and appears to be blind in her right eye. It is unknown if she was born this way or acquired as part of her head trauma. Blind dogs can do very well in a stable environment and with a committed owner. Canela currently is being treated for an ear infection in her RIGHT ear caused by a yeast organism called malassezia. We have applied a medication into each ear to treat this infection. The medication will remain in the ears for 14 days and then should be followed by a recheck with your veterinarian. Ear infections are common in dogs and might require regular maintenance.My care has been sponsored by Nelson Goyena and Alexa Gonzalez!"Ready to meet Canela?

Chico is a little love bug. He enjoys sitting with his people, belly rubs, treats, a warm lap and giving kisses. He will follow us all around the house, up and down stairs, and hang out with us while we are gardening. He likes to bark at the squirrels but not much else. He'd be perfect to take to work as he'll just sit with you all day long. He is OK with being picked up and rides well in the car.What did you implement for house training? Do you think it's working? Chico has access to our yard throughout the day. We take him outside several times a day and say "Go Potty" until he does then give him lots of praise. Chico will go outside to pee in the morning, eats, then immediately goes poo so we have been feeding him outside with more praise when he goes on the grass. After dinner, we take him for a walk so he can poo again. Then outside before bedtime using the "Go Potty" command. We haven't been letting him inside until he does. He may have accidents until you get him on a routine in your home so be patient!Have you introduced them to a crate? If so, what kind of crate and what was their reaction? Chico sleeps in his crate at night. We also put him in his crate with yummy treats when we leave the house. If he whines at bedtime, we do not respond and he will settle down quickly. I'm sure he would love to sleep in bed with his people if you allow.How many hours did you leave them home alone? What was their behavior like when left alone? Chico is in a crate when we aren't home as we are still working on potty training. He has only been alone when we go out shopping, maybe for 2-3 hours.What is their behavior like with other animals? Chico peacefully coexists with my 11 year old cocker spaniel. He can be protective of his person but responds well to correction of any barking or growling at the resident dog.What is their behavior like with new people and/or children? : Chico has not been around children at my house. As he is so small, he would not be appropriate for small children. He is shy of new people and may bark at them but will warm up quickly if persons can get down to his level rather then standing over him, entire him with yummy treats and sweet talk.Is there anything else that you would like the new adopter to know about this dog, such as any special tricks or adorable traits?Chico should be walked with a harness to avoid pulling on his neck which will cause him to cough. He likes to go on walks and does cute little spins when greeting us. He steals socks and likes to roll around on our clothes! Primary Color: Blonde Weight: 8.38 Age: 3yrs 0mths 1wks show less

Animal's Name: GlacierAnimal ID Number: A185812Glacier is a big furry bundle of love! He's been through a lot recently, so he's pretty nervous in unfamiliar situations and cautious when meeting new people. But once he knows he's safe, he loves to be loved! He likes having his head, ears and upper body massaged, and will gladly accept a belly rub. He seems to enjoy being brushed, and tolerates baths better than most!What did you implement for house training? Do you think it's working? Glacier goes potty every time we take him outside, and has not had any accidents in the house. He does know how to use a doggy door, but seemed to prefer waiting for his walks.Have you introduced them to a crate? If so, what kind of crate and what was their reaction? Glacier had access to a crate but did not use it.How many hours did you leave them home alone? What was their behavior like when left alone? Glacier has not yet been left alone.What is their behavior like with other animals? Glacier wasn't able to play very actively since he had a leg injury, but he showed interest in playing with our resident large dog. He was friendly with our smaller dog too, and mostly ignored our very dog-friendly cat.What is their behavior like with new people and/or children? : Glacier is nervous around new people, and will sometimes try to back away to avoid them. If they approach slowly and indirectly, he will sometimes do a little nose touch. But it takes a while for him to let people pet him.Is there anything else that you would like the new adopter to know about this dog, such as any special tricks or adorable traits? Glacier takes a lot of comfort from stuffy toys. He has a favorite lamb chop he takes most everywhere he goes. Primary Color: Red Secondary Color: White Weight: 51 Age: 1yrs 6mths 4wks show less
