About Kalani

Kalani is an adult female who came into the shelter on 6/28 as a stray. Handling: https://youtu.be/ai3-nb191BQ I really wanted to name Kalani, 'Sneaky,' but didn't want to give anyone the wrong impression. But, she is sneaky!! As I was setting up my camera, Kalani helped herself to the Pupperoni treats that were clenched in my hand after creeping up so quietly I didn't even know she was coming!! She loves to use her nose and was sniffing all around after I had stuffed some treats in higher places. She knew exactly where they were! Such a smart and intuitive girl. In her cage, Kalani was curled up in a tiny ball, sound asleep. I'm guessing she was tired from spending some time on the street as a stray. That said, she was happy to go outside and so fun to be around. Kalani is absolutely adorable and will sit at attention for treats and takes them nicely. She allowed for handling all over and has a few missing teeth which just add to her character. She looks around two years old and has a fun but not over the top amount of energy. She was very interested in other dogs walking by, but didn't get to meet any yet. We were out on a very hot day and she definitely got tired and was happy to go back into the comfort of the air conditioning when we were done.

Bullet is a 4 year old neutered male who came into the shelter on 6/25 as a confiscate (abandoned). Handling: https://youtu.be/Q6u4uY07OOo Leash Test: https://youtu.be/Vf-dTg2sPlE Playgroup: https://youtu.be/M2EAhtdGplg Playgroup 8/3: https://youtu.be/nVMfX3-t0Fs Happy and friendly, not sure how Bullet got his name. He also doesn’t have lightening speed or a tough guy persona. Bullet is pretty much an open book, what you see is what you get. He wags his tail just as much in his kennel as he does outside. He was a bit jumpy during leashing but not at all outside. He kept all four paws on the ground even when I crouched down to his level. Bullet has a tiny bit of gray in his muzzle but he’s no old man. His energy level is great, playful yet laid back. He sits on command and takes treats gently. Bullet’s favorite thing was being close and getting a massage. He leans his whole body into handling and didn’t show me any places he wasn’t comfortable being touched. Bullet’s younger side shined when we started to play with the toys. He understands fetch but didn’t want to drop the ball after a few times. It was super hot out though and he got pooped quickly. Bullet hates going back to his kennel. It’s understandable for such a loving dog to not like the loneliness of the shelter. Bullet has started to attend dog playgroup. He can enjoy lots of chase and some light engagement. He may be selective with some male dogs. show less

** Heartworm Positive ** Fraiser is a 3 year old neutered male who came into the shelter on 6/24 as a stray. Handling video: https://youtu.be/dWOXWVxgZ78 Leash test: https://youtu.be/FDMnD24bVNA Playgroup: https://youtu.be/x8MKbUnO6Hs AUGUST - I feel so bad for Fraiser. Since he is heartworm positive he can't run and play like he wants to. He spent his time with me this weekend taking treats very gently and chewing on a soft toy. He's a wonderful dog who needs to get out of the stress of the shelter environment into a home where he can heal from his condition. JUNE - Frasier is naturally a nice guy. He is always happy to see you but never overly excited. He came in a nice harness and collar but no one has come for him even though it’s beyond obvious he was part of a family. Frasier is a big dog (comes up to my hip) but walks with a light paw. He only slightly pulls when he needs to go potty. His energy remained steady off leash never jumping or invading my personal space without an invitation. Frasier knows some basic commands like sit and comes when he’s called. He also takes treats gently and didn’t once go for self service. Frasier played nicely with toys if I started the game, no guarding what so ever. He was happy to get some butt scratches and cuddles while checking out the other people in dogs in the yard. Frasier is close to a turn key dog as they come! show less

Fresh Prince is a 2 year old male who came into the shelter on 6/22 as an owner surrender. Treats 8/17: https://youtu.be/loOHn-WmCa4 Handling: https://youtu.be/wzA9ISrHB9s Leash Test: https://youtu.be/LqWuZtLsuTc Playgroup: https://youtu.be/BlZc-T8QOIM AUGUST - Fresh Prince is bouncy and active in his cage. He's tired of hanging out in such a small space when he knows there is so much to do outside. He's a treat motivated guy who has a nice sit and takes them well. Fresh Prince can be a bit jumpy when he wants your attention so he'd do best in a home with older children right now. He likes playing with soft, squeaky toys over balls and he lets you take the toy from him to throw. When he's tried of playing, he sits down in the pool to cool off. JUNE - Poor Fresh Prince seemed so sad and defeated when I approached his cage. Why am I here, lady? I was able to leash him up with ease and he cautiously walked out of the pavilion. He seemed to be potty trained, so I let him take his time outside before we went to play. It was a rainy day, but Fresh Prince didn't seem to mind. What he LOVES is treats. He will do anything to get some yummy goodness. Prince knows how to "sit" on command and is sometimes so excited to be rewarded that he'll jump up. He did some exploring and let me pet his little worried face and body without issue. As our time went on he started to become more comfortable and happy. Fresh Prince has started to attend dog playgroup. He does a lot of sniffing to start and then has a tendency to paw and hump. He does a bit of posturing and doesn’t respond to corrections. He will benefit from tolerant playmates. show less

Jackson is a 3 year old male who came into the shelter on 6/22 as an owner surrender. Handling: https://youtu.be/79ex0wAaezE Leash Test: https://youtu.be/7PGxRrfKupI Playgroup: https://youtu.be/hcLx-58t1RA Jackson appears to be a little mopey and depressed in his kennel, being left at a scary shelter will do that to a supposed family member. He was easy to leash and walked nicely past other dogs inside. Outside he was surprisingly upbeat, even in the hurricane rain storm we got caught in. The moment we got outside he was a different dog. He was excited to sniff around and get to know his new spot. Jackson invited himself right into my lap for snuggles on snuggles in snuggles. He happily chased tennis balls into the rain and brought them back to do it again. He knows sit and took treats gently but wasn’t googling them up like crazy either. He would much rather play, pee, and get pets. Jackson was with his last family since they got him from a breeder (😱😡) at 6 weeks old. It’s understandable why he seems depressed inside but his jovial attitude outside says he’s ready for a fresh start too.  Jackson has started to attend dog playgroup. He does a lot of sniffing to start and then has a tendency to paw and hump. Jackson was surrendered because owner couldn’t afford. Lived with 1 cat and kids 15 & 11. Younger child was special needs. show less

He’s just a baby and could use continued guidance to grow up to be the best version of himself. He’s easy to handle and eager to please. Landon came forward when I walked up to his kennel and was easy to get outside. He was excited but pretty great during leashed walking. He loves treats and can get jumpy when he’s excited. He responds well to sit commands and takes treats well. Most of the time was spent outside exploring the depth of my treat bag and didn’t show any real interest in toys. Landon allowed handling all over and steady wagged his tail. By the end he even was understanding some patience listening to my wait command.  Landon regularly attends dog playgroup. He likes a lot of chase. He can get a bit mouthy when he gets riled up in play, and be too much for easier going dogs. show less

Midnight is an adult male who came into the shelter on 7/5 as a stray. Handling: https://youtu.be/9wBymqeDR8U Playgroup: https://youtu.be/0AYr3Fqs0zw Playgroup: https://youtu.be/8vB5kTcAtIU Playgroup: https://youtu.be/XYNgWM0-Y58 JULY 27 - Midnight is a treasure! Well we are sad that we have not been able to find him a new home yet, we are super grateful that he is with us, even though he was abandoned at the shelter with a note stating he needed a new home, he could have been allowed to run around the streets by himself and that would’ve been far more tragic for him. Midnight does not let that get them down though! He is incredibly happy and very energetic and loves more than anything to be outdoors playing with his human friends and dog friends a like! Midnight is great in play group, he is such a treasure and deserves his own home! Come meet this boy today and be his savior !!  Midnight has started to attend dog playgroup. He will participate in chase but his focus is really on humping his play partners. He will need management and training on how not to hump during play. JULY - Midnight is as sweet as he can be even though he was abandoned at CACC with a note stating he needs a home. His “owner” didn’t even take the time to give us any information or the courtesy to stick around in case we had questions. Poor Midnight. We will work hard to find you a good home!! show less

Raven is an adult female who came into the shelter on 7/21 as a stray. Handling: https://youtu.be/4Pn5skKqBEs Raven came to the front of her cage when I greeted her, tail wagging. She was eager to leave the pavilion, probably to attend to her bathroom duties, as she relieved herself outside right away. Raven is a determined gal, pulling me wherever her nose took her once we entered the yard. Turns out Raven is a lover of both land and sea! She jumped into a kiddie pool without hesitation, even tried to dig her way to the bottom (lol). Raven was also pretty psyched about the massive amount of drinking water in the pool. I can’t blame her, it was a sizzling summer day. After pool time, she happily chased after a tennis ball. She has moves - she’s agile and can jump quite high! She retrieved the ball and brought it back to me each time, allowing me to throw it again and again and again (she LOVES fetch). Raven would fit in perfectly with an active family. When she wasn’t showing me her athletic side, she let me rub her belly, took treats nicely from my hand, let me pet her all over and laid a few smackaroonies on my cheek. Raven was happy and excited to spend lots of time outside of her cage. We don’t know anything about what Raven’s life was like before the shelter, aside from the visible evidence that she’s had multiple litters of puppies. But that’s all in the past now. She was friendly meeting a male dog on leash. When our time together was up, she went back into her cage with ease. show less

Tutu is an adult female who came into the shelter on 6/28 as a stray. Handling 7/29: https://youtu.be/dw9c-_fnlnQ Handling: https://youtu.be/eHLr49Sla7g Leash Test: https://youtu.be/8nrFmeXXKxc Playgroup: https://youtu.be/sYsHuqidMLY Tutu is what they call bootylicious. It’s a weird thing to notice about a dog but it’s the first thing I saw when we were walking outside. Her demeanor was night and day from when I first met her. She had just come in and the shelter was clearly overwhelming her. She was shutting down in her kennel, shaking and drooling. When I went to leash her the next time I saw her she was cautious but not difficult to get out. The minute her face hit the sunshine she turned from scared to silly. Tutu is young and bouncy and swings her big booty when she walks. She loves attention and wants to be close for handling. Obviously butt scratches were her favorite. She does sit when asked and even gave her paw! It was followed by a jump but who really cares about those little mistakes. She can be a spazz on the leash and will benefit from continued training with her new family. Tutu has turned the corner from sad to happy, let’s get her out before it reverses.  Tutu has started to attend dog playgroup. She can sometimes display dominating moves like mounting and necking with some dogs. She needs respectful dogs who won’t overcorrect her behaviors for now. show less
