Sacramento- Don Rickets is 1 year old and at only 38 pounds, he is pretty small for an English Bulldog. He came to us because of his foreleg deformities, like many English Bulldogs, has had some issues. This is to be expected with any bulldog, but he is the sweetest English Bulldog I have have ever met. He doesn’t really care too much about the other dogs (all high thinks baby bulldogs are the best), he is a bit shy (can be hand shy especially when getting to know people). Even with his bad front legs, he gets around well and can run when he feels is appropriate. He just needs more socialization and confidence building. He had a prolapsed urethra shortly after coming to us so he had that surgically corrected and was neutered. He is up to date on vaccines and is microchipped as well. He is a lazy dog who wants a to be part of a family who will spoil him. He had a cherry eye pop up but it disappeared as well, so I assume that will appear again, although it is cosmetic. He has eaten taste of the wild his whole life and his coat is super soft. He was blue colored as a puppy but is more of a chocolate color now. He is looking for a home that understands the needs of an English bulldog and also has the financial means to keep them. They are the most expensive breed to upkeep but they are so cute, it is worth it! I love bulldogs personally, I love their personalities, their stubbornness and their laziness. ... See MoreSee Less

Levi Stubbs was adopted. This guy was left behind when his owners moved out and so he came to us. I think his singing was so adorable and I am not the only one it charmed, he also charmed his foster family and they decided they couldn’t live without him. One of the benefits to fostering is you might just find the perfect dog for you! ... See MoreSee Less

Don Rickets is about to have surgery. He has a prolapsed urethra, that needs to be fixed as well as neuter. How cherry eye tucked back in, so he gets to keep that. I know he is in good hands, but always a bit nerve wracking when an English bulldog has surgery, especially one that I know nothing about! I took him to another vet earlier this week for bleeding from his penis and the vet missed the prolapse, he had bloodwork and a urinalysis and everything looked good. I always say if it can happen, it happens to my fosters, but I hope I never have this issue again! So everyone send love to this little guy. ... See MoreSee Less

We never got to announce this adoption and it is a special one. Rosie was adopted! She was with us for over 2 years but has a home of her own. Originally she came to us from Bradshaw Animal Shelter after she had had a c-section and most of the puppies were deceased, 2 puppies only would survive (out of 7) and they were adopted but then she waited and waited for a home. She was super insecure and afraid but she blossomed quite a bit in foster. And since being adopted, she has continued to improve (clearly she still doesn’t love me all the time but she is definitely more open to me now than before). Her humans are awesome, and I am glad that they adopted from us as it means I have new friends too. They adopted that Spina Bifida bratty puppy, and at the time they had another bully who was incontinent, but she crossed over the rainbow bridge leaving a hole in their hearts and home (and a bored bulldog). So they wanted a special needs dog, but I instead suggested Rosie and they fell in love with her, even if she is untrusting of strangers and slow to warm up to men. But she is spoiled rotten, and so lucky to have a family. And this is what makes fostering so difficult, Sarah committed to foster and never assumed that would mean 2 years, but that is what it took. After 2 years it is hard to give up a dog, but it would have to be to a special family only. Thanks for standing by her Sarah, and thanks for being the isle of misfit pets Cabano family! ...

Sacramento- Irwin is a chubby heeler puppy who was born in a field, but as long as he can remember it, he had lived with a variety of dogs. He is an only child so his bite inhibition (and he will test it on your pajama bottoms) and is a bit shy with new dogs but he just needs more socialization and love. He started to potty train himself at about 5 weeks old, so he is doing great with that. He will whine in his crate for a while but other than that he is your normal dog-in-training just trying to figure out the world. He is a butterball (joy of not having to share booby milk with any other puppies) and we don’t know who dad is so not sure his size full grown. But if you like cattle dog puppies, he will make you swoon.
He will be neutered, he has been dewormed and is up to date on vaccines and microchipped. You can find our adoption process and apply online at:
Sacramento- Nicki Kid (alright guess the name and why) is about a year and a half old Queensland Heeler. She was living in a field for some time and was only ever able to be caught when she had a baby. Some heelers have crazy energy, but she does not. She loves to play with the dogs in the house and then she is super content to get lots of attention. If you need personal space, this is not your dog. She has zero understanding of personal space and if she could, she would probably cut you open and wear you as a suit (not in a creepy Silence of the Lambs kind of way) just to be close to you. So if you are looking for a pretty girl who will think you are the most amazing thing that was ever put on the planet and to feel like someone cannot live without you, she will show you this every single day. She has done well with the chickens (supervised) so I believe she will be fine with cats as well. She loves all humans so I think kids are the more the merrier. The only downside (if you consider the stalker ex girlfriend kind of obsession to be a positive one- and I think there are lots of people who will love it) to this cutie is that she is not yet 💯 potty trained and sometimes she cries for a bit in the crate (but calms down). She would of course love a home where there are people there more often. There are so many great things about cattle dogs, their size is one, but she really does have an amazing and loving temperament as well, so I know she is going to make someone very happy.
She is spayed, microchipped and up to date on vaccines. If you are interested in her you can find our adoption process and apply online at:
Needed a few days to figure out a name for her, we all know I don’t like single names and all my names have meaning - so I want to introduce you to: Ariel Madison.
Ariel Madison is a shark toothed puppy who loves to play and gets around amazingly. She is going to be evaluated by UC Davis and hopefully start physical therapy soon as well. They will see if she is a candidate for surgery with the research study. Either way, she is your normal puppy who wants lots of attention, loves eating and playing- just not as mobile and is incontinent. I have added to our wish list to cover her needs. Some of them any of the items that she needs because she is unable to hold her bladder and bowels so items like diapers and everything that goes along with that as well.

It is super frustrating, this is the stuff we have to deal with every day. Sometime backyard breeders are just ignorant, and other times they are malicious. This person is knowingly breeding dogs that are genetically problematic. I wasn’t the only one who contacted them, but I am sure I was the nicest. Of course, my texting means that I apparently don’t have a job (I have 2) or a life (mine involves taking care of poorly bred animals). Apparently they are 7 weeks old and in homes now- none the less, this person is what makes my skin crawl. I can work with those who don’t know better or those who don’t have the funds but those who just use their animals for money AND lie about the dogs to sell to equally ignorant people, I find absolutely disgusting. ...

November 2013, I got a phone call from a man whose dog died leaving orphaned puppies behind. I quickly left my friend’s house to go pick up these three puppies and they were bottle raised. Just 4 years, last week, one of these puppies was adopted to an amazing home. Zella had two amazing moms- Pam and Shelley. Sadly, a few weeks back, Shelley passed away. In lieu of flowers, Pam asked for donations be made to us, and many wonderful people did just that. Then recently, my incubator started having issues and so I decided to by thePuppywarmer I had been wanting for so long and buy it in memory of Shelley Van Drimmelen. Now Shelley’s memory will live on in every orphan, or special needs baby who survives in part because of this amazing incubator. The world misses you Shelley, but thank you for being a loving mom to one puppy monster, and thank you to everyone who donated in her honor to allow this purchase. As soon as I find my label maker, it will forever be adorned with her name, and I will remember this gift and her every time I use it. <3 ... See MoreSee Less
Sacramento - Dorothy Zbornak is one of our senior Akita girls. We think she is approximately 8 years old. She came to use with her sister, Blanche Debereaux from our friends at Placer County Paws. While these two are being fostered together, they are very different and independent and would be thrilled to have a family of her own, without having share the spotlight with her sister.
Unlike typical akitas, she is super lovey with people and she is great with men, women, and all kids, so far! Dorothy is very confident and more social, but can also tend to be the more dominate of the sisters with other dogs. As an akita, she has a high prey drive so households with small dogs and/or other small animals wouldn't be the best fit.
Dorothy loves being an indoor dog and is potty trained, has good manners, isn't destructive and knows basic commands. She enjoys a little romp in the yard from time to time, but what she wants most of all is just a nice calm house to live out the rest of her days with tons of treats and petting and more treats. Did we mention she's very food motivated? Treats.
Sacramento- Bentley is a super cute 8 year old Jack Russell terrier mix. She is super cute and sweet and a bit sensitive (like flies will scare her until she trembles). But other than that, she is pretty amazing. I am not the biggest JRT fan, because of their energy, but an 8 year old has the perfect amount of energy. She still love to play with other dogs, but she is also a good snuggler as well. She is good with dogs, cats and kids, and is ready for a home of her own. She has been a beloved companion, but after a divorce, her mom could no longer find a home where she could have her dogs, so I promised to find both the one adopted from RPNC and this girl a great home. So please share this girl, so we can find her the perfect forever home.
Sacramento - Blanche Debereaux is one of our senior Akita girls. We think she is approximately 8 years old. She came to use with her sister, Dorothy Zbornak from our friends at Placer County Paws. Blanche is super sweet, seems to follow her sisters lead, loves to make out and loves treats. She is also potty trained, has good manners, isn't destructive and knows basic commands. She enjoys a nice pet and will give you kisses, but what she wants most of all is just a nice calm house to live out the rest of her days with tons of treats and petting.

Name that puppy! Our newest Spina Bifida English Bulldog is here and she needs a name so she can have her own page. So looking for creative names. Going to give a little background in case it helps come up with creative names. She came to us from a vet clinic in Terrebonne, OR, she will part of the Shriners / UC Davis program using England ah bulldogs as a natural animal model for Spina Bifida (so hopefully she will be having surgery soon). So she needs a super awesome name for her own Facebook Page. Her name has been Tinsley, although that isn’t what I would name a bulldog puppy. If you tell me Scout or Maggie, you will be banned from this page (ok it won’t happen but I will judge how basic you are). And yes, she will eventually be available for adoption. And GO! ...

Sacramento-Buttercup came to us from Placer County Paws at 6 weeks of age when her and her brother were found as strays. Buttercup is extremely loving and loves to curl up in her human's lap. She loves attention and food so much that as soon as she see's you when she is in her crate she will happily greet you with her loving barks. She came to us extremely malnourished and still has some fear that she will not have enough food, so we hope with time she will feel more confident. Buttercup came to us with her brother Westley and we believe she is an American Staffordshire Terrier (or perhaps American Bully) puppy. Buttercup gets along great with dogs and cats. She is a puppy and as such is learning about bite inhibition. Buttercup loves toys and will happily play tug with you.
She will be spayed, have her second second round of vaccinations, be microchipped, and dewormed. She will be available for adoption 1/12. You can find out more about our adoption process and apply online at: recycledpetsnorcal.org/adoption-process/
Sacramento- Tanner found himself without a family when his family moved out and left him behind. Tanner is about 2 years old and 10 pounds. He is energetic and playful and does well with other dogs, cats and kids (currently fostered with kids aged 4-12). He is gentle taking treats and super sweet. He has some separation anxiety. He is getting crate trained, he would do better with someone who is around more often or with another dog who will be his best friend. He was quite bonded with the mom dog we took as well but is adjusting so well in foster and I know he will continue to thrive to be an amazing companion. He is only about 8 pounds and a year and a half old.
