Mama Barista and her 7 coffee beans (pups) came to CalPaws when the pups were only a couple of weeks old. For Barista’s whole life, all she has known were scraps. No love. No human interaction. She had to fend for herself daily. We were told this is mama’s third litter at only 2 years old. One of the best things about dogs is that is that they forgive, forget and they learn. They learn that all humans aren’t evil, and some are quite special. Mama has done a great job taking care of her pups while adapting to a new home life, learning how to be loved, walk on leash and trust the humans around her. She has come so far, welcoming new people now but still keeping an extra eye until she is a bit more comfortable. She does best when she has a canine companion and she loves all fur friends she meets. She would do best in a home with another dog that will help show her the ropes.  Barista is has gotten her girly figure back, is house trained, microchipped and vaccinated. She is ready to start her forever with her perfect family! Adult: 1-6yr $400.00 Each of our dogs are fully vaccinated to include Bordetella, DHPP, DHLPP and Rabies. We deworm each dog and chip. Lastly, we spay or neuter each of our dogs. Our adoption process includes an initial conversation about the dog to see if the dog is a good match or if another dog could be a more suitable match. We also will complete a home visit. It should be noted that our adoption counselors know the dogs and can best guide any possible adopter with a suitable match. Please visit https://www.calpaws.org/available-dogs for the adoption application! We are always in need of experienced fosters for the amount of dogs we have coming in.

Few ladies can achieve the gorgeous eye make up that our boy Baron (aka "Bear-bear", "wiggle butt") flaunts, along with perfectly peaked ears and a handsome swagger! With his big smile and happy, wiggly butt, he will get any Grinch into the holiday spirit! Baron is about 4 years old, ready to play but past those blessed puppy stages! He has never had an accident in his foster home, and calmly sits at the door to be let out when he needs it. He could demonstrate sit, shake, and lay-down as soon as he arrived. He loves to show physical affection, whether he is trying to "hug" you with his paws, bury his face in your lap, or full-body spoon in bed. While he prefers half of your cal-king bed to sleep, he is also a good boy in his crate! His affection and eager-to-please personality spans from adults to small children, who he happily allows to snuggle him right back. Unfortunately, cats don't appreciate his snuggles quite as much, and while he does not pursue them to injure, he is still curious and likes to ask them to play. He responds well to "leave it" in these situations, and is showing less and less interest in them. Baron is pawsy in play, and loves a playmate! He especially loves other pawsy dogs around his size, who get the zoomies like he does! He makes the cutest noises wrestling with his husky-shepherd foster brother. In fetch, he will happily frolic off in chase, but promptly forgets the "fetch" part. He does love soft, squishy and squeaky toys, as well as some good old fashioned tug-o-war. He is good at engaging play, however is relatively submissive should another dog not appreciate his style. He readily rolls over, belly up for forgiveness, and asks for a re-do! Baron is perfect for an active adventurer, but also loves a good cozy day on the couch. He truly appreciates a good Netflix binge as much as we do, and expects snacks to be shared. He is not food aggressive, but is very motivated by treats. He is more of a grazer when it comes to meals. He's been enjoying Benebones and shows zero interest in stinky shoes! Baron is a fast learner, and quickly picked up his new name, and the foster-household routines. He knows when to expect the kids home from school and fully greets and inspects them upon their return. His kisses are sweet, gentle, and not too sloppy, and he really appreciates a bald baby with dinner still stuck to his head. Baron is happy to assist in "Clean the baby" time, when the dogs are given permission to clean the floor, highchair, and baby, post-meal. Did you drop something on the floor while cooking, and can't pick it up? Simply call "clean up!", tap your toe near the mess, and Baron will be RIGHT there on duty! He is the perfect Sous Chef who will both clean, and perform quality control, for your meal time.  Baron will walk excitedly on a leash, but responds quickly to correction. He constantly looks to the human in charge for affirmation. He listens best to his foster mom, versus his foster dad, but he spends the most time with her as she works from home. He may give foster-dad the side-eye when told to go outside, yet he has no problem pouncing into bed on him!  He lounges comfortably on car and plane rides, and will gladly sit in the back, or shotgun. We are curious if he is 5% bunny rabbit, as he has quite the spring in his step! He can easily bounce straight over a baby gate, however once told to "stay", he obliges.  He also enjoys acquiring a spot on the couch via the back of the couch, versus the front, but again responds well to correction with this nifty party trick of his. (We will admit, it's quite fun to watch him do it!) Adoption fees: Adult: 1-6yr $400.00 Each of our dogs are fully vaccinated to include Bordetella, DHPP, DHLPP and Rabies. We deworm each dog and chip. Lastly, we spay or neuter each of our dogs.

Bear makes friends everywhere he goes. He bonds quickly and will lean gently into those who sit at his level while giving soft kisses. He loves to follow his foster mom around the house and spend time with the two foster fur brothers  and the middle school child who lives in the house too.  Bear  will hang out with foster dad and truly enjoys getting and giving love to the men and ladies in the neighborhood.  He is about 7 months old and has to be reminded from time to time  that he cannot run and play just yet  He has not had experience face to face with cats but watches a few from across the street. He is learning how to live in a house. The TV, mirrors, and reflection in the sliding glass doors  were all new experiences for him. He learns quickly.  He has toys for his puppy chewing needs. He has picked up a shoe from time to time but puts it down as soon as he is asked to do so.  He is getting used to sleeping in a pen area in the front room but prefers to have someone close by.  We will work on crate training more once the cone of shame is no longer required. His recovery is coming along well.  He came into the rescue with a  spiral fracture that required surgery and has two follow up visits with the surgical team scheduled.  Those visits are covered by the rescue. He needs extra encouragement to get into the car but rides well once in the car. Bear is a wonderful boy that will make a great addition to a loving home.

Hello future fur-ever family, my name is Bubba, and I am a 2-year-old male Rottweiler/Shepherd Mix.  I have so many amazing attributes that it’ll be hard for you to not love me.  So put your feet up and enjoy my little bio.  Let’s talk about all my fun facts first.  I have professional training, no not by the CIA, however it’s still impressive. I attended the RFRD academy where they taught me things like sit, down, stay, heel & place.  They also taught me how to have good manners at the vet and groomers.  The last part of my training sounds like I went to etiquette school, LOL.   My foster mom continues to practice my training with me because they say it’s important to keep my brain challenged.  I hear dogs who get bored and aren’t challenged often find themselves in trouble.  I do not want to be in trouble, I like to please my people.  If you bring treats when we practice my training that’s super helpful, because no dog said they wouldn’t be extra good for a Scooby snack. I currently go on multiple walks a day with my foster mom.  If you like walking I am your perfect partner but sometimes I get distracted by smells!  I do love to run as well and play chase, so I won’t complain if you need a running partner.  I am crate trained so if you have a job no worries I will hang out in the square box until you get home from work.  I know how to hold my potty and will tell you when I must go.  Typically, me hanging by the back door means it’s time but if you wait too long, I will tell you with my words. Additionally, I love, love, love car rides.  The car I currently ride in has a dog gate in the back area where there are windows to see all the cool things.  So far, I sound like the perfect family member…right? I bet you are wondering what’s the catch.  Certainly not little humans because I love them!  My foster's great niece is 6 and I just can’t help but kiss her cute face.  Keep in mind I am a big boy, and my tail is very strong and sometimes my feet don’t always stay on the ground because I am so excited to see my humans.   If your little human has toys, it’s possible I will steal them, and they may not survive.  Those tuff toys don’t even stand a chance with me. The solution my foster mom has found is cow bones, antlers or nylabones.  Like humans I choose who my friends are, so if you have a dog or a cat we should meet first to see if we are compatible.  The last thing you should know is I can be handsy, remember 2 is still semi-puppy and someone never told me that wasn’t okay, but I am learning quickly.  A firm “no” and sometimes distracting me with a toy or a bone is all it takes.  My foster mom often uses the tug-war-rope. I don’t even like that toy but she’s good at tricking me with it. If I sound like I would fit into your family, let the rescue know so we can meet.  Thanks for reading my bio.   Adoption fees: Adult  dogs: 1-6 years $400.00 Each of our dogs are fully vaccinated to include Bordetella, DHPP, DHLPP and Rabies. We deworm each dog and chip. Lastly, we spay or neuter each of our dogs.  Our adoption process includes an initial conversation about the dog to see if the dog is a good match or if another dog could be a more suitable match.

She is exposed daily to numerous children, dogs (big and small, old and young) and cats. Her resilience is impressive! She can play for what seems like an eternity with the other dogs but she can also snuggle right into you and would love to give you kisses.  She will need a husky familiar home that can match her spunky spirit and hopefully a dog buddy  to share her sassy Husky ways with. She has endless loyalty and the drive to please her family!  If you need a little husky in your life, Cleo is your gal!  Adoption fees: Adults: 1-6yr $400.00 Each of our dogs are fully vaccinated to include Bordetella, DHPP, DHLPP and Rabies.

Comet is an 18 week old male German shepherd. In his short life he has been surrendered to a shelter twice. The 1st time at 8 weeks old in San Jose, he was turned in as a found stray puppy.  The people who turned him in fostered him and eventually signed an adoption agreement at the end of 30 days Just 2 short weeks later he was turned in to the Madera shelter as a found stray. The people who adopted him had no working numbers and were unable to be reached. The Madera shelter reached out and found a foster for this puppy they had named Grinch at Christmas time. He was renamed Comet by his new foster mom. Comet is very smart and extremely food motivated. These 2 traits make him an easy dog to train.  He is crate trained and house broken. He lives with 3 other dogs, 2 males and a female. He is a great playmate to them and also respectful when they give him corrections.  Comet would make a great partner for someone who would love to further his training in competition obedience, rally or agility. He doesn't want to be left outside to be a backyard pet.  Don't worry that he has too much drive and won't settle down. He will sleep quietly through the night and the puppy in him still likes his daytime naps.  He allows for the appropriate amount of snuggles, but is not a needy boy.

He is crate trained, although he is not a fan. He is neutered, vaccinated and chipped. He just needs a family of his own.  He does well on leash and his recall is good.

We believe she was very close with her previous owner (who could no longer care for Duchess due to health problems) as she very much wants to be with you wherever you are. She prefers the quiet and will often retreat to her crate for and chill-time and naps.  She is recovering beautifully from an intensive dental surgery in which sixteen teeth were extracted (she has 22 remaining!). She loves her food; however is a somewhat private eater. Once she gets to know you, she will "talk" in a gentle growl to tell you that she either wants a slow, leisurely walk (unless she sees a cat or squirrel, then hold tight to that leash!), a treat or just a pat on the head. She is social with other dogs; cats not so much. She is looking for her forever companion(s) where she can fit right in and be part of the family.

  Say hello to Fenris! Fenris is approximately 7 month old male Malinois mix. He came to us from the Sacramento shelter where he was struggling in the shelter environment. He has been decompressing in his foster home and is starting to show his goofy side! You can tell he has dealt with some trauma in his short life, so his fosters are working to teach him that the world can be a fun and safe place. Fenris definitely has the Malinois personality and likes to ”chomp chomp” during play. He is warming up to the other dogs in his foster home, though he does not care for other dominant males so a home with submissive males or females would be preferred. He is a very sweet boy and is doing well with the children in the home, though he is mouthy and a little pushy, so a home with older children would be best. Fenris is also still adjusting to being in a home so we are working on potty training and manners. We are still learning about this sweet boy, and will update as we go along. Puppies: 0-1yr $450.00 Each of our dogs are fully vaccinated to include Bordetella, DHPP, DHLPP and Rabies. We deworm each dog and chip.

Hello, my name is Jack!  I am half Great Pyrenees, and half Treeing Walker Coonhound!  I am about 5.5 years old, and I am well travelled, now looking for somewhere to call my forever home. I started in Santa Cruz as an outside dog only for about a year, I hated that! I was then surrendered to Santa Cruz Animal Shelter, and I hung out there for a few months waiting. I was finally adopted and then spent my time living on a 10 acre ranch, much better! I lived with emus, cows, horses, llamas, chickens, goats, and all kinds of other farm animals. I lived on the ranch for about 4 years until another dog attacked me and I had to move to the city with my owners to heal. During that time it was found that I had been suffering from allergies all this time! I am much happier now that those are taken care of. However, I am still living in the city, and cannot go back to my ranch because Grandpa who lived with me full time moved across the ocean. I have been having a hard time not roaming my large property. Thats my favorite passtime. My perfect home life could be with other dogs if we jive, and maybe some land or with someone who could be with me all day and help he get some exercise. This city living has done a number on my physique. I am obsessed with playing ball, but I only like tennis balls, please dont give me a rubber ball, I wont play with it. Nothing motivates me more than my ball.  I have lived with indoor cats in the past but if I see one on the loose, I want to make sure they are not invading my property. I don't want to hurt them but guarding is my job afterall. Speaking of guarding, someone that understands my nature and can help me be my best self would be great, sometimes I can be stubborn but at the end of the day I want my people to be happy.  I will go for walks if you want but sometimes I pull because I want to make sure everything is safe! If we run I won't have time to sniff too much so I can be easier to handle.  My family calls me a velcro dog because I love to be with my people, even the young people. As I mentioned above, I have some allergies... well more like a list but we know what they are and what works for me and we will teach my new family about that. It is mostly outdoor allergens that affect my skin and make me itchy. I really want to find my new family so I can get to know them and do what I do best!  Adoption fees: Adult: 1-6 yrs $400.00 Each of our dogs are fully vaccinated to include Bordetella, DHPP, DHLPP and Rabies.

This “little” boy was a owner surrender from a accidental litter. He was initially terrified but after a short time spent decompressing and getting lots of love and attention, he’s feeling much more confident and trusting. Kona is going to be a very big boy, but what a gentle giant he is! He enjoys playing with his foster pups but is always keeping his eyes peeled for where his foster moms are. He loves to cuddle, is housebroken and neutered. Kona is a smart pup and sits beautifully. He’s learning to be chicken friendly so can likely learn to respect cats. Besides his boyish good looks, he’s got a heart of gold and will make a fabulous addition to any family.
