Lola is a spayed and healthy 10 1/2-month-old Great Pyrenees/Golden Retriever mix. She is a BIG puppy with an even bigger heart. She loves belly rubs and spooning and will accept delicate kisses on the nose. Lola also loves to burn off her puppy energy by running on the beach, romping with other dogs, and chasing fascinating scents out in the fields. She is respectful of smaller dogs, and likes children, though she is still just a kid herself and can be a little clumsy. Lola probably didn’t get much training in her first 6 months, so she has had some catching up to do.
Lola is fully house trained and walks well on a loose leash, with the occasional burst of puppy antics. She has been doing well in her family dog classes and responding well to positive feedback - like treats! She will need to keep working on her skills, ideally with someone who has experience with Great Pyrenees.
Lola is looking for a home where she will have plenty of space to run around, chase butterflies, and sniff the wind. It would be great if she had another dog to play with. And most of all she wants to be a member of the family - beloved and treasured for her sweet nature and silly self.
Are you Togo’s miracle?
Named after one of the arctic’s most heroic sled dogs, this precious boy is ready for his forever home. 7-12 mos old, 45 lbs., he was found injured, scared and hobbling down the street.
Per vet and X-rays, it appears he was hit by a car and never treated. The front leg he favors is fractured in several places but is healing correctly. His hips are permanently affected but there is no surgical solution.
Even though his hips are wonky, and his broken front leg is still healing, his mind and spirit don’t seem to realize all of this! He’s busy jumping off decks, joyfully wiggling and playing, jumping over baby gates, learning commands, napping with his new human friends, happily meeting other doggies, and making that heart-wrenching and funny husky yip and yodel if he thinks you’re leaving him behind.
This is a wonderful, amazing, very, very smart dog. He learns fast, is very playful and joyful, very affectionate and trainable, and as a husky, true to his breed in being clever, athletic and independent. He’s a doggie dog, so no cats - he will pursue. At 45 lbs, he will likely get a little larger. He attached very quickly to his foster parents and is desperate to be the right someone’s fiercely loyal, funny, smart, snuggly member of the family and the pack. As a typical Husky, he will take extra training as they understand the commands but might decide not to follow the command.
Please help save Togo. The husky rescues and shelters in CA are overflowing with healthy dogs and the foster volunteers have many more animals than they can handle. Please email friends and other animal lovers, post on FB, Next Door, anything you can do to share this flier and help us spread the word. We know his forever home is out there - that one person or couple who will open their hearts and home to Togo and be happy to provide what he needs, in exchange for endless devotion, snuggles, laughs and love!
