Adorable Sonoma was surrendered to the shelter by her previous owner and we can not imagine why because she is a fantastic little girl! She is quiet, sweet and very loving and loves nothing more than to cuddle with her human friend. She is GREAT on walks and on leash, and can enjoy hanging out quietly at home in her favorite bed. She is 200% housetrained, does her potty as soon as you take her out and has never had an accident. She would do equally well in a small apt or condo with frequent walks as she would in a home with a yard to play. She is highly adaptable to being an only dog or part of a pack. A quick learner and eager to please, she takes cues from her surroundings and readily makes herself at home. She is the perfect dog and ready to find that special family who will let her know just how special she is and offer her a home forever. Sonoma is not to be missed, if you’re looking for a little sweetheart you MUST meet her.
Sonoma was overweight at 20 lbs when we first met her. She is now eating the right foods and does a brisk 3 mile walk every morning, and is now a svelt 15 lbs.

All of our amazing dogs are fully vetted, fixed, vaccinated and microchipped prior to adoption. They are then fostered by one of our experienced foster volunteers, who are able to assess temperament and personality and begin any necessary training. An adoption application, adoption fee, and home check are required for adoption.
Not 100% certain whether you're ready to commit to pet ownership? Consider fostering one of our amazing dogs. It is a crucial piece of the rescue process, and you can play a huge part in saving a dog's life, all the while deciding if that dog, or any dog, is the right fit for your lifestyle! If you know you can't be a forever owner but want to help out and get a little puppy love in return, this may be just the thing for you!
All supplies, food and veterinary care are provided to the foster by the rescue. No costs involved to you - just provide a safe and loving environment and we will do the rest! Fostering can be as short- or long-term as you would like, and we can place dogs with you that are conducive to your lifestyle and preferences (small, large, hypoallergenic, etc.)
