Naked Nicky

Welcome Naked Nicky to the Pawsitive Change Program!

Who needs fur when you’re this adorable! Naked Nicky has a condition called alopecia. Some colors of chihuahuas are prone to hair loss and Nicky falls into this category. But don’t let his lack of fur get you down. This little guy is the happiest little lap warmer ever.  He has no idea he’s naked and the condition isn’t complicated to care for. Just think of all the cute sweaters you can buy.

Nicky is kennel trained and house trained. He loves laps and blankets and pretty much anything soft, warm and fuzzy. If you’re looking for a lap baby he’s the perfect dog for the job. He gets along with other dogs but would be just as happy as a solo pup.
Nicky is learning a lot at prison and will graduate with his Canine Good Citizen certificate. He’s a sweet and gentle boy just waiting to find the perfect family of his very own. Apply to bring Nicky home to your family.

Hey Mutt Militia we are looking for an awesome furever home for this cool dog!  Charlie looks to be a Chihuahua crossed with a Miniature Pincer. We found him at the City of Upland Shelter. At approximately 6 years old, he finally has proof and gets to brag about how smart he is having graduated from Pawsitive Change and passed his Canine Good Citizen test with flying colors. Charlie has got mad skills in leash walking, hiking, crate training, car rides, couch snuggles, dancing, kisses, jumping, fly hunting, and will happily help clean yummy food off a floor.

We feel Charlie would love an active family who loves rules and routines. No young children but older children over 10 would be fine. He loves to sleep under the sheets or under a blanket and hang out with his people. He does play well with other dogs and doesn’t mind cats. If you have soft blankets and lots of love, Charlie would love to meet you and win you over!

King came to us from Bakersfield Veterinary Hospital.  He was brought in by a kind couple that saved him after he was hit by a car and left to die.  We worked really hard to save his leg, but determined it was best to amputate it in order to save his life.  King has not skipped a beat. He plays with his foster’s pack, knows how to use a dog door, loves all the snuggles and scratches he can get.  King is even learning to share his food (resentfully). What he loves most is riding shotgun with his human!!!!!

King would do best in a home with no other animals.  He enjoys kids, but prefers to spend his days lounging with his human, sitting in the grass watching his human pick up his messes, and following his human from room to room.  He just wants to be where you are. He is a larger dog – approximately 65 pounds.

King has many years ahead of him and is low energy as long as there is not a cat in view.  His foster believes the best home for King would be with a veteran so they can heal together, but any low energy home would make this boy happy.
