About Fernando

THIS IS A GUEST POST: Fernando was found stray, living with a feral colony, with a badly ulcerated left eye which could not be saved. Don’t think that he is disadvantaged by this because he gets around just fine. Fernando is a very affectionate, wonderful Siamese (mix?) who LOVES affection from his people, the more you pet him, the more he will love you back. He is very calm and interactive with people - he is not a stand-offish, independent cat – so he would probably be fine with mature, gentle children. Fernando is approx. 5 yrs, 11 lbs. He is FIV/FeLv negative, his fecal was also negative but he does show early signs of kidney disease. Fernando requires a prescription diet to support his kidneys and loves to eat as soon as his people wake up. Don’t worry, he will be sure to remind you when it's time to eat!! He is currently in a foster home where he lives with a chihuahua. He’s not a big fan of dogs but will tolerate a cat-safe dog(s) in the home. He would also be fine living with another cat(s). Fernando will only be adopted out as an indoor-only cat. This is a guest post so anyone interested in adopting should contact Nadia Grochowski directly. nadia.grochowski@gmail.com

Captain Courage is a very special, approx. 5 yr old boy, 55 lb boy. He was terribly neglected and abused by someone who kept him isolated in their yard. They injured his front left leg badly and, because he did not receive treatment, his leg could not be saved and had to be amputated. Captain is doing really well as a pain-free tripod! He is in a foster home with cats and has mostly ignored them when they are relaxed. With the proper introduction he should be fine living with dog-friendly, saavy cats. Being under-socialized with other dogs but friendly towards them he can get overly excited and his actions might be misunderstood by the other dog and cause a ruckus. If being adopted into a home with another dog, his best match would be a calm, mature adult dog who can guide him with further socialization. Captain loves all people pretty much from the moment he meets them, including children. Captain is overall pretty laid-back, happy to hang out in his favorite spot in the house or in a nice shady area in the yard (he really enjoys the outdoors). He is a solid boy, very strong, and still learning good leash behavior so his best fit home would be with people who have recent experience with strong, large breed dogs, preferably with some staffie or pittie experience. show less

Noni Spumoni

“Ask not what your dog can do for you…”. Noni is not a dog that will bring you her favorite toy or wag her tail like crazy when you pet her, she is just not overly demonstrative as a rule BUT, when she cuddles up to you and sighs contentedly, or gives you a lick on the nose, your heart will swell with love for her. Noni landed in a shelter after she was abandoned in traffic at the age of 13 yrs, nearly blind and deaf, neglected and too weak to even stand. Noni hasn’t looked back since leaving the shelter. She’s been too busy recovering and enjoying life! She eats like a little horse, is strong and walking well. She is in very good health overall, mobile and alert. Noni is a sweet little lady who really loves to cuddle up to her people, she will sleep under your chin all night and enjoys napping in a dog bed with a friendly cat. She navigates well with her nose and loves to have a good supervised snoop outdoors for her exercise (as well as regular visits outdoors for her pees and/or a poops). If she’s in wandering around mode indoors or you have to be away from the house for a few hours, just pop a diaper on in order to avoid pee accidents. She has difficulty walking on slippery floors as her feet will slide out from under her. Noni requires daily brushing – which she adores - and regular visits to a gentle groomer so that her coat does not become matted or overgrown. She has daily eye drops, and arthritis medication as needed. Noni enjoys car rides and would be happy to accompany you everywhere and, at only 11 lbs, that’s easy. If you would like to open your heart and home to a deserving and very special, sweet, senior lady, have a safe and level outdoor area (Noni doesn’t do stairs), and no-slip flooring or plenty of area rugs, look no further. Noni is very well suited to a home with cats but she tends to be assertive with other dogs so they have to be tolerant of her bossy antics in order to be a good fit. Gentle, mature older kids in the home would be fine. show less

Oslo was rescued from a canyon hillside where he had been living alone on a tattered mattress for 1 year, surviving by scavenging food. He has been in a foster home with 4 foster brothers and sisters who have brought him much comfort and increased confidence, and continue to help him through his journey from street/feral scared dog to a domesticated in home pet. His huge progress is a testament to his resilience and ability to acclimate to a world where he can feel safe. Today Oslo loves going on walks, is a fantastic hiking partner (can go up to 5 miles), and has learned that car rides are actually ok (after all it means he is going on a walk or a hike!!!). He has gotten over many fears, with some remaining fear of some loud noises (thunder and fireworks), and though he has gotten accustomed to meeting people, he may be shy and skittish with new people and can be especially hesitant with the male gender. His best fit home is one with people experienced with dogs with a shy/feral/street life past who have gone through the emotional trauma and healing, so that he can continue having that savvy support needed. Another dog, or a couple of dogs, those that are well tempered and confident, is a must to help him continue having that confident furry support system. Oslo would do best with a private and very secure yard for his potty breaks and outdoor enjoyment when not going on a walk or hike - though he is house trained, he does need access to a safe outdoor area when he needs to take his potty break. A quiet calm home, with lots of love and consistent structure and routine would be ideal for this boy - if he knows what to expect every day, he will feel more safe knowing his world is as predictable as possible. Oslo has come so far, and is ready to continue this journey into the big world with the right understanding person or family and furry siblings, and will be ever so loyal to them and give back more than one can imagine. Recommend children in home over 16 yrs of age. show less

Seal was found stray and taken to a shelter. She is about 2 yrs of age, 12 lbs, she is still very puppy-like and adorable from nose to tail. She has a classic dachshund body and whip tail but it’s her face that melts hearts, with her wrinkled brow and toothy grin. Despite being clinically blind, Seal navigates her foster home remarkably well only bumping into the other dogs when they move around. She navigates stairs well, feeling their depth by reaching out with her paws and is learning key words so her people can assist with voice instructions. Seal must be able to thoroughly trust her people to always give her accurate instructions, putting her welfare and safety first so that she can enjoy a sense of freedom. She is loyal, loving, cuddly, playful, VERY food oriented (will leap, spin and bark in the kitchen at meal times), gets the zoomies, and barks to alert if she hears someone approaching the home, or something new and a little scary. In foster she has discovered dog beds, toys, playing with the other dogs, and sleeping in the big bed cuddled up all night with her person. She sometimes shares her bed with a friendly cat. Seal’s ideal home would be in a calm, relaxed house with a secure and safe outdoor area with no (or safe) stairs so that she can roam and scamper off-leash. A mellow dog tolerant of being bumped into would be fine with careful monitoring or separation at meal and treat times. Very dog friendly cats would also be okay (can’t risk her being swatted in the face by an intolerant cat). Older teens who can provide consistency in safety and instructions also okay. She is not a fan of car rides but does well in her booster seat (her safe place in the car). Seal enjoys quiet neighborhood walks but will do better being carried or in a pouch if going on outings further from home. She is house trained and will go when taken outside but mainly uses wee wee pads, she may have accidents initially until she learns where she needs to go, or when stressed. You could not ask for a more loving companion. show less

Tony is a very sweet 8 year old spaniel terrier mix at a perfect 15 lbs – the perfect size for laps and cuddle time! He was found stray, a victim of a car hit and run, taken to the shelter where The REAL Bark came in to rescue and complete his physical rehabilitation. He is now enjoying life in a foster home. His best fit home would be calm and quiet with a private, secure yard, with someone who is home most of the day (not someone who is away for an 8 hour work shift as that would not work for him). Tony needs experienced dog owners that are strong leaders who can help him continue to build his confidence and feel secure, as well as allow him to follow his leader's direction and cues. On walks, his leader must have good leash handling instincts and be able to manage a little over excitement when seeing other dogs. Tony is a professional snuggle bug and bonds very solidly with the humans he trusts to guide him. He may be a bit shy and scared when meeting a stranger, but does warm up to them when he knows they are not a danger stranger. Tony would be happy to be the only dog, but he might be okay when properly introduced to another dog in the home, preferably a mature, calm and confident small dog under 20 lbs. Between his unknown past and the accident on the street, he has been through a lot and still has so much love to give. He is ready for his forever home where this family can continue giving him the patience and commitment to work with him to be a very happy and confident dog, and he will promise to be the best partner for the lucky individual or family. Tony is crate trained. show less
