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.

Fia

Sex:  Female

Breed:  Chihuahua Mix
Age:  10 Years

Fia was pulled from Kern County Animal Services recently with extremely long nails and very infected teeth. After two weeks of antibiotics her blood work showed it was safe to go under anesthesia and a dental and spay were performed. She is now a completely different dog! She’s so happy, playful, energetic and so so sweet. She was believed to be around 15 years old but since the infection has cleared up and bad teeth are gone, based on behavior, we are thinking she’s more like 10 years old.
Fia is house trained, crate trained and walks fabulous on a leash. She does well around children as long as they understand her boundaries. She runs alongside her foster(dog) siblings and naps in the sun. Then in the evenings relaxes on the couch while her foster family watches t.v. She’s such a wonderful girl and the family that adopts her is very lucky to have her.  If you would like to adopt this spunky senior girl, apply to adopt her today!

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.

Boomer

Sex: Male
Breed: Doberman Pincher mix
Age: 2 years

Welcome Boomer to the Pawsitive Change Program!

Boomer has a regal look all his own (think Egyptian sphinx). He was rescued from Shafter animal control after someone took scissors to his ears. This boy is active and would do best in an active home that will keep him busy and stimulated. Need a jogging/hiking partner? This guy would be perfect!

Boomer is kennel trained and working on perfecting his house training skills. Although he’s busy he’s a very shy boy and part of his time in prison will be spent socializing him to new sights, sounds and experiences. We feel he would do best in a home with older children as his happy energy might knock over younger tots.
Boomer is learning a lot at prison and will graduate with his Canine Good Citizen certificate. He’s a shy but active boy just waiting to find the perfect family of his very own. Apply to bring Boomer home to your family.
