Raul

Raul
3 years Old
Chihuahua Mix

Raul is a peppy, happy-go-lucky chihuahua mix that is about 3 years old who came to us from a shelter in Upland. He has all the love and affection of a small dog, but none of the barking or anxiety. Raul is very curious and confident and is willing to try new things. He seems to match the energy of other people and animals in his environment, but is most happy when he is physically touching his humans or other dogs or has his people in sight.

Raul sleeps in a crate at night and when he is left at home alone. He is quiet as a mouse, with zero barking or whimpering. He has the funniest sleeping habit of lying belly up and twitching his feet in the air while he dreams —but first he does the cutest nest scratching, bundling up his blankets or bed before lying down.
This little guy is still learning boundaries with getting on furniture and his human's lap but has already shown to be a quick study, as he is beginning to pick up that he is only allowed in those spots when invited, not whenever he wants.
Walking on a leash is easy for Raul, he actually puts his head into the leash all by himself, while wagging his tail! With his human as pack leader Raul only occasionally pulls on the leash and is content to trot alongside your feet or next to other dogs while out for a walk.
If you're looking for a little love bug, who is easy to care for and wants to cuddle ,Raul is your guy!

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.

King

Sex:  Male

Breed:  Chow Shepherd Mix
Age:  10 Years

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.
