Cannoli Click on Cannoli's picture to see his video on San Diego 6-CW Animal House!



Name: Cannoli
Breed: Chihuahua
Age: 5 yrs old, 4lbs
Sex: male neutered
Organization: Open Arms Rescue
Phone: (760) 470-7643
Website: www.openarmsrescue.org

Cannoli is a 5-year-old Chihuahua weighing just 4 pounds. Tiny in stature, big in personality, he has lots of energy and should probably be an only dog because he gets a little bossy with other dogs. He's a bit of a diva in that he loves to be carried around. He actually prefers being carried around in a purse to walking along side his people. Cannoli is paper trained, doggy door trained, and would be good in an apartment. He's very affectionate and just loves to be around people! He's also very playful, a good kisser, and loves to cuddle. He's fully vaccinated, micro-chipped and neutered. To learn more about adopting this sweet boy, please go to OpenArmsRescue.org and fill out an application or call (760)470-7643. He'll also be available to meet you this weekend at the Mission Valley PETsMART from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Jewells

Name: Jewells
Breed: Corgi/Chi Mix
Age: 9 months old
Sex: Female
Organization: Lucky Pup Dog Rescue of San Diego
Phone: (619) 756-6376

Jewells is an active puppy, full of snuggles and energy. She is spayed, up to date on shots. She walks wonderfully on a leash, and loves all the other pups in the rescue. She is great with dogs, cats and would do best with children over 10. Jewells weighs about 20 lbs. She is very much a happy, bouncy puppy and will require some extra time and training to help her bring out the very best young lady that she is!

Rio



Name: Rio
Breed: White Terrier mix
Age: 2 or 3 years old
Sex: Male
Organization: Lucky Pup Dog Rescue of San Diego
Phone: (619) 756- 6376

Rio
is a wonderful little guy, very affectionate and outgoing. He gets along well with other dogs, walks beautifully on a leash. He loves the kitty we have in the rescue. We don't know his history as he was rescued from a high kill shelter, but he really, really likes to be with people and dogs, so he wouldn't do well be left alone for many hours at time. He weighs about 15 pounds, and will need to be groomed on a regular basis. He still has quite a bit of puppy energy and could benefit from a doggie training class. Rio would be great with children over ten.

Name: Marie
Breed: Shepherd/Labrador mix
Age: 4 months old
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Animal Rescuers Without Borders
Phone: (619) 977-3593 cell (call or text)
Website: www.ARWOB.org


This sweet little 20-pound girl is a very happy outgoing social pup who is great with cats and dogs. Marie does well in the car and is crate trained. She does sad little howls when she is left alone in the yard, but she's as happy as can be when she is around her foster mom's dog, so we think she would do best in a home with other dogs, or in a home where someone is always around to keep her company. She can't help it if she's just a social butter fly who loves others. She's a typical happy, healthy puppy. While she's just 20-pounds now, she has the potential to reach 50, full grown. She also has 2 brothers: Dimitri, who loos just like her, and Vlad, who is mostly a black Lab. They're currently looking for foster parents as the group has too many dogs, and not enough fosters for small adult dogs and puppies! For more information about adopting or fostering, visit ARWOB.org, or call Animal Rescuers Without Borders at (619) 977-3593.

Gala As featured on San Diego 6-CW Animal House!

Breed: Schnauzer
Age: 3 years old
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Animal Rescuers Without Borders
Phone: (619) 977-3593 call or text
Website: www.ARWOB.org


Gala was owned by a family who could no longer care for her, as they were moving. She's great with people and other dogs, but not a fan of cats. She's a typical, purebred Schnauzer, good with kids, and an excellent family guardian. Gala is very sweet and rides well in the car. She does well in a crate, but would rather hang out with the rest of the family pack. She's available from Animal Rescuers Without Borders, and if you're interested in adopting Gala, or any of the other wonderful dogs they have, please fill out an application at ARWOB.org. They're also looking for foster families for dogs, puppies, cats and kittens who need a temporary place to stay until a permanent home can be found.

Phone: (619) 977-3593 cell (call or text)
Website: www.ARWOB.org


For those of you looking for a perfect dog, here he is! Ninja is a well-behaved, housebroken Jack Russell mix. He's always happy and fun, and his foster mom says he currently lives in a condo with a large dog, and two cats. He loves all people, he's excellent in the car, and he isn't destructive or barky when left home alone. As all Jack Russell Terriers are, he's super smart and has learned to sit and stay while waiting for food or to go outside. He loves his food and toys, but isn't possessive about either. He wound up with Animal Rescuers Without Borders after being hit by a car and suffering head trauma. He may always have a bit of a tilt to his head, and when excited he'll make a couple of circles, but it doesn't affect him otherwise. He's amazingly affectionate, and loves to give hugs and kisses, or play with other animals. Ninja is 20-pounds, full grown. If you're interested in adopting Ninja, or becoming a foster fanily for a dog or cat, please visit ARWOB.org and fill out an application, or call (619) 977-3593.

This fun little Pittie is named Madonna....she's a lovely 1-year-old who will make an excellent addition to any family because she's just so friendly and loving. She's still young with a moderate energy level, and would probably enjoy a home with a yard she can play in and get her daily exercise. She'd also make an excellent walking partner. Madonna truly enjoys being with people, and needs a family who will include her in their family pack, so that she can be indoors with the family at night, in a soft, comfy bed of her own. She also seems to respond well to positive reinforcement, and should be easy to train. Madonna is patiently waiting to be noticed at the El Cajon Animal Shelter, 1275 N. Marshall St.. She's in kennel #18, and her ID# is 19004.

It didn't take her long to learn how to play fetch and it's quickly become her favorite game.

No one who has ever met her can understand why such a great little girl hasn't been adopted. Sugar is crate trained, walks well on leash, enjoys car rides and is good with cats, children and dogs.

This girl especially loves attention from her foster mom and is always happy to be carried around with the people she has bonded with. She's been really great with children; her foster parents say she delights the grandchildren with her playful ways. Nora is easy to have in a home. She has not shown any destructive behavior. Even though her favorite kennel companion is any one of her foster mom’s sneakers, she does not chew items she should not. She is a pretty quiet dog as well. While she occasionally barks, and sometimes even seems to talk, she is not a noisey girl. Her foster parents also note that they enjoy her adorable way of dancing for treats. Being alert and curious - and very treat-motivated, she'd be an easy dog to train. Nora already has great name recall, house trained, spayed, microchipped and up-to-date on her vaccinations. While Nora gets along well with the other larger dogs in her foster home, she seems to enjoy being the center of attention and would be fine as an only dog.

Holly's Garden Rescue pulled her out of a shelter after one of their volunteers noticed that there was an adorable little dog with the most beautiful eyes hiding under her shelter bed. She had been there for 6-months. When they pulled Brandy from the shelter, she came out of her kennel, wagging her tail and giving cautious kisses....and since that day, she has been one of the most appreciative little girls they have ever rescued. She's called Ballerina Brandy because she dances for treats, when you come home, or any time she's happy. She loves toys, car rides and walking on a leash. She loves being held like a baby, too. She's great with children and other dogs. We'll never know about her past, but we're certain her future is bright!

He's a happy guy, outgoing and loving, and his tail is always wagging. He came from a good home and is great in a family environment. And don't think he's old just because he's 7.

He's good with other dogs in social situations but would prefer to be your one and only dog at home. Seymour has a little dry eye, which will require daily drops, nothing complicated. This little darling is inquisitive, a very funny boy who will keep you smiling all day long. Please contact Holly's Garden Small Breed Rescue and make him part of your family this New Year.

With the addition of foraging toys and a roomier cage, her new feather growth looks beautiful with no evidence of over-preening. Billie uses a variety of words and phrases, whistles, and laughter. She steps up well for both genders in her foster home. She is very engaging; an all-around clown; and clearly enjoys interaction from the people in her life, allowing trusted flock members to hold her like a football and turn her upside down.

Bailey is one of the lucky ones…a 7-8 year old dog doesn't stand a chance of getting out of the shelter she was in, but a volunteer from Labradors & Friends fell in love with her. Bailey is a perfect little lady. She LOVES everyone, she's great with kids, other dogs but would be best in a home without cats. She's house trained, good on the leash, and knows some basic commands. She was clearly once someone's girl, but they tragically never came to claim her from the shelter. Even if you're not able to adopt Bailey at this time, perhaps you could offer her a warm and loving home for the holidays as a temporary foster family. Call or go to LabradorsAndFriends.org.

He is very affectionate, friendly and engaging with people and will settle in after play time. He knows how to sit on command and is working on walking with a loose leash, and we believe he is already potty trained. With the right fit, Bogie would fit in fine with a family with children.

Belle is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. She's a lab mixed with some breed that causes her coat to reflect black, brown, red, gold, chestnut and orange colors when you look closely. Possibly some sort of mastiff? Born with a deformity in her front leg, she was deemed "unadoptable" and headed straight to death row at the Lancaster Shelter. She caught the eye of a Lab & Friends volunteer who was there that day, she was rescued and temperament tested....she scored an A+ on her temp test, by the way! Since being with Labradors & Friends, she has been fitted with a prosthetic leg, which she is refusing to use so far, but with some work and rehab, the goal is to get her to be comfortable walking on it. It would be wonderful to find a family dedicated to her rehab. Belle is an active, happy, easy-going, lovable dog. She's totally housetrained, has wonderful manners, well-socialized and enjoys riding in the car. She's great with other dogs, and kids!

Liam is a 4-year-old Shih Tzu mix for adoption from Holly's Garden Small Breed Rescue. He weighs just 13 pounds, and his before and after pics are incredible. He was an unrecognizable, giant ball of matted hair when he was turned into the shelter, so shaving him down was the least painful way to start over and get his long hair under control. He'll be a beauty when his fur grows out. In the meantime, his disposition and winning personality make up for the funky new haircut. Liam gets along with other dogs, is housetrained, well-behaved, respectful and happy. He's as sweet as they come, and will be a great addition to almost any family. Call Holly's Garden Small Breed Rescue, or go to HollysGarden.com. Even if you're not ready to adopt, find out how you can become a temporary foster for a dog in need.

Zeus is a 10 month old, neutered male Lab/Pyrenees Mix, weighing approx 80-85lbs, Current on shots and micro chipped. He is great with kids, even the younger ones, very playful, a little goofy, yet has a calm, sweet demeanor. Zeus loves people , gets along well with other dogs (big or small), enjoys the dog park, beach and taking walks on leash, he responds to a whistle on the recall and loves to play ball, he has not been cat tested but he likes to bark at the cat next door, so probably will do best without any kitty friends.

Sheela is a 2 1/2 year old Shepherd mix (has a bobtail) and weighs about 48 lbs. Sheela has lived at a rescue in Ensenada, Mx since she was 3months old or so. Sheela has come a long way since being in a loving foster home. She is great with everyone; dogs, puppies, cats, kids. Sheela loves to sleep with you or in her own bed. She loves to play with other dogs. She likes to play with toys and in... the water hose. She comes when called and is learning to walk well on a leash. Sheela loves to be in the same room with her humans but is fine being left alone during normal work hours. She is not much of a barker but will let you know if something is out of the ordinary. Sheela will need a very patient home with loving people. She also uses a doggie door. Sheela is housetrained but sometimes has accidents so will need to be reminded to go outside frequently. Sheela does not have good control of her anal muscles and sometimes poops whiles she walks. It has only happened an average of 1 time per week. She is currently undergoing tests to see if it is neurological and can be helped. She also has trouble getting up at times. She is spayed, microchiped and current on vaccines. She must stay on a grain free diet. Visit: Secondchancedogrescue.org or Second Chance Dog Rescue, San Diego, California for an app, or call (619) 721-DOGS (3647)

Frances is a Moluccan Cockatoo who became part of the PEAC foster flock in 2012 when his previous owners surrendered him saying he had a screaming problem. When the foster first took him in, Frances would not allow anyone to handle him, and he had a lot of phobic behaviors, probably because he had been completely cage-bound and isolated in a back room in his previous home. Frances has improved greatly, and has learned to play with and destroy many types of toys, but he's still working on "stepping up", and prefers to be in the company of other parrots, as he's more at ease in a flock environment. He still screams in the morning and at night, and will require someone who has a great deal of Cockatoo experience, but in the right environment, he's going to make someone a wonderful companion.

Angel is a happy, plump 8-year-old, spayed, short haired tabby who absolutely loves people. She was found outside the gates of the National Cat Protection Society, in the bushes, where she was meowing for help. Even though she is declawed, she was abandoned at night to fend for herself. She was lucky to have been unharmed and she was very thankful for being rescued. Angel loves having her back scratched and does a funny licking motion when being scratched. She's been placed on a diet right because she loves to over eat... and she can stand to lose a little, just to get her back to being healthy again. Angel loves to talk and loves to be picked up and carried around. She tolerates other animals, but prefers to be the only animal in the house getting the attention. She's litter box trained, fully vaccinated, FeLV tested, treated for fleas, dewormed, and microchipped.

Remy has gained 3-pounds since he was rescued from the shelter. He loves his food...wet or dry, it's all good! He uses a scratching post nicely and is very sweet and gentle when being held. His foster mom says he likes to roll over to have his belly rubbed...just like a puppy. He loves to run and play with his toys and he gets along well with other cats and the resident dog in his foster home. How great is it that a foster family has already experienced all there is to know about Remy, so that there will be no surprises for the new adopters!

He’s a happy, friendly guy, and when he isn’t busy playing ball he’s happy to lounge at your feet or share his love and affection. Samson can be a little possessive of his toys – he lays on them so he can keep them all to himself – so he will do best as the only dog in his new home and would prefer older children or adults only.

I had to learn about the joys of indoor living when I first joined the rescue because they're pretty sure I lived an outside life as a breeding dog. I have learned that the couch is absolutely the best form of heaven! I currently live with a 1.5 year old pittie mix who thinks I'm his momma. I can be selective about my canine friends but if I love them then we are BFFs. I don't live with any kids, but my foster parent thinks I would be wonderful with little ones of all ages. I'm very calm around people, I don't jump, and I take food very slowly and gently. People tell me that I'm more adoptable if I know things. So far I've learned my name, sit, lay down, roll over, and go to bed. I'm crate trained and 100% potty trained! Call or visit www.pbrsd.org to schedule a time when we can meet.

Name: Tootsie
Breed:
Umbrella Cockatoo
Age:
13 years old
Sex:
Female
Organization:
Parrot Education & Adoption Center (PEAC)

Tootsie came to Parrot Education and Adoption Center In April of this year. Before that, she'd been with the same family for her entire life...13 years...but when they moved into an RV, Tootsie couldn't adjust to the cramped living quarters and tiny cage, and she began to pull her chest and leg feathers out due to stress. She's now in a foster home where she has grown back a large amount of down, and they hope she'll soon regrow some of her feathers, as well. She's now able to sleep and reside in a very large cage which is much more appropriate in size for a bird like her. She's loving and loves to cuddle and be around her people. She does tend to call out when she gets lonely, and they're working on redirecting this behavior to a more constructive one, such as playing with toys and other fun ways for her to occupy her mind when she's alone. Tootsie knows a few words such as hello and I love you, but is still too shy to speak in front of people but will chatter on and on when she's alone or in the company of other parrots. Tootsie is a fast learner and just wants to be in a forever home that will love her and care for her the way she deserves to be.

Sweet Isaac was caught by rescuers who had set traps to catch and neuter feral cats. It became obvious that Isaac was very friendly, and he was taken to a Rescue House vet. He quickly became the staff favorite and was dubbed “Mr. Personality” because he’s affectionate, outgoing and follows people like a dog. He’ll talk to you, snuggle, kiss…and steal food off your plate. His charming nature is good with everyone and everything, including other cats and dogs. One thing to consider, however, is that Isaac tested positive for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus, which is a cat-only virus. It can’t be passed to humans or other species, but because it can be passed to another cat through a serious bite, he may be best as an only cat, or in a home with other FIV cats. Isaac is not a fighter, but there’s always a chance another cat might attack him, so he should always be an indoor kitty. I don’t think it’s that big a deal for most people because not everyone wants 50 cats…but Isaac has been without a home for a very long time. We hope you’ll consider making him part of your family. Call the Rescue House today for more information.

More info about FIV: FIV stands for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus. It is a cat-only virus and can NOT be passed to humans or other species. For Isaac, he most likely fought with a hostile FIV+ cat while he was doing his best, fending for himself. FIV is NOT easily passed between cats that live together as transmission occurs through a serious, penetrating bite wound (or blood transfusion); not a frequent occurrence among domestic cats. An interesting fact is that any cat that has ever been vaccinated for FIV will then show a positive test result.

FIV is a type of "slow virus" that may affect the cats' immune system over a period of years, but as long as FIV+ cats are not exposed to diseases that their immune system cannot handle well, they can live long normal lives. Since their immune system can be weakened, they should visit a vet at the first sign of illness and should be fed a high-quality diet. A good article about FIV from The Best Friends Animal Sanctuary can be found at www.bestfriends.org/Resources/FAQs-About-Feline-Immunodeficiency-Virus-FIV. FIV+ cats can live quite long, happy and normal lives, often with no symptoms at all.

The perfect Easter bunny, .a chocolate bunny, which everyone loves and will most likely be devoured by the end of the holiday. A stuffed bunny, which is the ideal children's gift, as you can put it in the toy chest and forget about it when your child tires of it, and a battery operated chick, which is adorable and will last until the battery dies. What ISN'T a great Easter gift is a BUNNY! They're living, breathing little creatures, who need love, attention and constant care for the next 8 to 10 years. You should only adopt a bunny if you have done your research and are sure about making a long-term commitment. If your children want to pet bunnies, there are shelters full of them, or consider fostering one temporarily until a permanent home can be found. Liz is a super sweet "HOE-TOE" bunny who was being transported from San Jose to Vegas, when her adopter changed her mind. So Liz wound up here in San Diego without a home. She's a nice girl who is a bit shy but warms up with a little attention. She'll be great for a home with adults and children over 7 years old. Find out more about adopting and fostering a bunny by visiting the local House Rabbit Society's website at SanDiegoRabbits.org.

Ralphie has been a part of the Parrot Education & Adoption Center for two years. He was part of a wild flock near L.A. until he was hit by a car, breaking his leg and bursting his air sacs. He was about to be euthanized at a shelter when a volunteer called PEAC and made arrangements to drive him to San Diego where he was immediately seen by a vet for emergency surgery. He's been in his foster home ever since. At first, he was terrified of humans and would hiss and growl, and needed to be fed with a turkey baster. With patience, time and love, he's now part of a human and parrot flock. He has an enthusiastic wolf whistle and says "Hello" clearly and sweetly, and is beginning to mumble along to the song "Old McDonald Had A Farm". What a story! If you'd like to learn more about adopting Ralphie, volunteering, fostering or donating. please call or visit the website at www.PEAC.org.

"The Bolt" was found wondering in a neighborhood in San Diego and nobody ever claimed him. 90% of his diet is grasses and weeds. He thrives in a backyard that has Bermuda grass hay with some dandelions and other native weeds. We supplement him with hibiscus flowers and leaves, rose flowers, Bermuda grass hay and other dark green leafy greens. African Sulcata Tortoises do not hibernate, like the native California Desert Tortoise, they require an outdoor enclosure with a minimum space for a larger one of 30 x 30 and a heated type house to sleep in. They love water, but do not swim. They enjoy a mud bath in the summer to keep them cool as well as lay in. The yard must be secure and free of other animals. They get up to 200 lbs and live up to 100 years. The are good pets because: They are kept outdoors, are great for people with allergies to hair and are fun to have around. They interact well with people and love the attention when you feed them. The San Diego Turtle and Tortoise helps you decide if this type of Tortoise is right for you and your family. There is no adoption fee for the animals, but they do require you to become a member which is $25.00. Monthly meetings are in Balboa Park and the schedule is on their website. They are FREE to the public.

Labradors & Friends Dog Rescue would like to emphasize the benefits of adopting a senior. But if outright adoption isn't an option, then fostering, under the Agnes Fund program is also available. The Agnes Fund is basically a Hospice program where they take in seniors, put them in to caring foster homes, but L&F provides all food, bedding, medical and any other support for the life of the dog.
