Hazel

Sex: Female
Breed: Terrier x
Age: 1-2 years old
Hazel was rescued from a hoarding situation at an abandoned house. This poor girl has likely only ever known street living and we’re ready to change that and give her the opportunity to have a real family.
Right now Hazel is very scared and shut down. We don’t have a good idea of her personality as she needs time to decompress and figure out the world isn’t so scary. We’re going at her pace and are hopeful with time she’ll open up and we’ll see what she’s really like. She won’t be adoption ready until she’s less scared and more trusting with humans. Because she came  from a hoarding situation we do know she’s good with other dogs. She’s a medium size girl between 30-40lbs. Stay tuned for updates as we get to know Hazel.

Shelby

Sex: Female
Breed: Queensland Heeler
Age: 2 years old
Shelby Lynn came in to Kern County Animal services after she’d been picked up as a stray. She had damage to her right eye and it was unknown how the damage had been acquired. Our vets will check out her eye and we are hopeful medication will fix her all up. If not the eye will need to be removed.
Shelby is your typical Queensland. She loves everyone and everything but displays normal Queensland behaviors. She herds people and other animals, she nips at heels, she’s protective and possessive of her people and the most loyal dog ever! Basically everything Queensland lovers love about the breed. Do your research before applying as Queensland’s aren’t a breed for everyone.
Shelby’s eye issues will need to be resolved before she is adoption ready. We are hopeful she’ll be available in 2-4 weeks.

Meet Elsie!
This sweet broken baby found herself at Kern County Animal services after she’d been picked up as a stray. Poor girl had a fractured front leg, a hairline fracture on her back left leg and the entire femoral head on her right back leg was broken off. We suspect she’d been hit by a car.
She had FHO surgery and is currently healing in foster care. Elsie Is super sweet and although she’s very broken has remained a happy puppy. We expect her recovery time to be in the 6-8 week range and she won’t be available for adoption until she’s healed.

Soledad

Meet Soledad!
This shy sweet girl found herself at Kern County Animal services after she’d been picked up as a stray. She was terrified at the shelter and scared dogs never do well in a shelter environment so we pulled her. Soledad is currently decompressing in foster care. She’s still really scared so we haven’t gotten a good feel for her personality just yet. But that’s the wonderful thing about fostering…she can take as much time as she needs to get comfortable with her surroundings and show us her real personality. Once we get a better idea of her personality and she’s a bit less scared she’ll be available for adoption l. Until then we’ll watch as she blossoms.

Brooklyn

Sex: Female
Breed: Pittie cross
Age: 2 years old
Kern County Animal Services reached out with an urgent case. They had a mama pittie x, Brooklyn, and her 9 babies come in to the shelter as strays. 3 of the babies had a condition called hydrocephalus and were not doing well with the litter. We pulled the entire family and placed the 3 hydrocephalus babies in a separate foster. Brooklyn and her 6 healthy babies were placed in another foster home.
Brooklyn is a tiny girl at only 33lbs and so far super sweet with all people. We’ll have a better idea of her social skills with other dogs once she’s been in foster care a few weeks. Her babies are only 5 weeks old. She will need to care for them for another 3 weeks. Once her babies are weaned she’ll need time for her milk to dry up before she can be spayed. She’ll be available for adoption in 4-6 weeks.

Bubbles

Sex: Female
Breed: Pittie cross
Age: 5 weeks old
Kern County Animal Services reached out with an urgent case. 3 pittie x puppies came into the shelter with their mom and 6 other siblings. Mom and the 6 siblings were healthy. Bubbles and her 2 sisters unfortunately were not. They have  Hydrocephalus. Hydrocephalus is also called water on the brain and results in fluid buildup on the brain. It can cause a multitude of medical issues including death if not treated and sometimes even when treatment is provided. The shelter needed immediate placement for these 3 babies as they were not thriving with their mom and litter mates. Bubbles and her 2 sisters are less than 1/4 the size of their healthy siblings likely a result of malnutrition because the hydrocephalus affected their ability to suck effectively when nursing.
One of our most experienced puppy fosters stepped up and we’ve taken these 3 into foster care. Mom and the 6 healthy puppies went in to a separate foster. We don’t have a prognosis for Bubbles or her 2 sisters yet. Currently we are working with our vet and amazing foster to get them bigger, stronger and healthier. Hydrocephalus puppies sometimes recover on their own with time. Others need medication and others need surgery. We don’t yet know what the future holds for these little ladies but are hopeful for their recovery and future adoption.
