Check out these loveable pups (and one cat) now available for adoption

By Cate Sacks

January 29, 2012 (San Diego's East County) -These shelter dogs have been provided training to become dream dogs for individuals or families. This month, we have several wonderful dogs to choose from, from pups to mature pets, and one cat. 


Honey, a boxer/lab mix is just that....as sweet as honey!!  This wonderful girl is playful as well as loving.  She weighs 42.60 lbs.  She bonds very closely and would love a life of walking, hiking, jogging, camping or just cuddling.  She plays well with other dogs, and is safe with children.  As you can see by her big smile...she is a very happy girl!

Candy, a dalmatian/lab mix, is loving and sweet towards adults, children and dogs of all sizes.  She bonds very closely and learns easily.  Candy is a nice size at 41 lbs, and would make a wonderful family pet or companion.

There is also an extremely gentle, quiet and loving 1 Year old little female mini long haired red dachshund looking for an equally gentle home that will treat her like the princess that she is.  She has never shown any aggression or pushiness towards anybody or anything at any time.  She is a tiny 5lbs!!

This little 10lb guy is fun, playful, and sweet.   He is crate trained at night,  bonds closely, and loves to be cuddled. He will keep you laughing with his clown like personality, and will make your heart sink as he chooses to sink into your lap.

Also available is a super fun 3 year old schnauzer loves to run and play.  This great guy bonds super closely, is crate trained at night, loves other dogs and is safe with children. 

Very loving yet sensitive Wheaten Terrier male had a bad start to life.  He found being in the shelter over-whelming and appreciates when people are loving and sweet to him.  He is over-joyed to 

see people and places he knows will not hurt him, yet feels worried if the energy's are wrong where he might get hurt.  This wonderful, extremely loyal boy is looking for the right home who will never show him hurt or fear again.

This beautiful orange and white tabby cat is in the shelter after getting a spider bite.  He will be all healed up by next week and will need to find a home....shelter is full so he can't stay.  Please help me to find this very loyal and loving boy a home.  He loves to talk and follow you around..somebody forgot to tell him that he is a cat and not a dog!!
