About Lab: Albert Einstein

All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, shots current (DHPP, Bordetella and Rabies where applicable), dewormed, flea and tick treated and microchipped.  * If you are interested in a dog, please first read the biography on the dog (keep scrolling down for the bio!) and then go to our website, www.dpsrescue.com for an application. Our adoption fee is $400-$800. if a biography does not otherwise say then it is $400. We will also post at the end of the evening the names of those dogs who have been adopted: www.facebook.com/DPSRescueAdoption Fee: $600 The Lab Puppies are 10-week old Schipperke X Chihuahua mixes. They were rescued from the shelter. We were told they were Lab mixes; we laughed when we arrived and realized they were anything but Labs. But never one to criticize, we decided to call them the 'Lab Puppies' and name them after scientists. Isn't that fun? Their current foster said they are some of the best puppies he has ever had in his home. They are not overly noisy. They are sweet and loving, and they get along with his big dog and little dogs. They are even great with the kittens. We expect them to be in the 15-25lbs range when full grown.  The Lab puppies' current schedule is: 6:30-7:00 am - wake and go outside to relieve themselves. 7:30 am - breakfast. Throughout the day - play in the backyard, cuddle with humans. Lunch at 12:30. Dinner, 5:30. These puppies are lovers and super energetic. They are all playful and tons of fun. Of all of them, the female is the calmest. They absolutely adore people. Big ole love balls, that is the best way to describe them! If their days could be spent just one way, it would be running around and playing, then getting lots of love and attention from people. Here’s a bit about each individual puppy: Albert Einstein: He is definitely the leader of the pack. He has the biggest personality of this trio. He’s got lots of love to give and wants nothing more than to receive attention. He would probably love an active home. Marie Curie: She is the calmest of the group, but as puppies tend to be, she’s still active and playful and loves to run around and enjoy life. Sir Isaac Newton: He is a very playful boy. He is calmer than Albert. He loves cuddles.   The Lab Puppies are only options for those who have had a dog of their own in the last 3 years. We believe that puppies need the most experience to grow up to be well balanced, well tempered, well behaved adult dogs. We do not consider petsitting, roommate's dogs or the family dog to meet the requirement of having a dog of one's own. If there are children in the home, they need to be over the age of 8.

We will also post at the end of the evening the names of those dogs who have been adopted: www.facebook.com/DPSRescueAdoption Fee: $600 Abu Dhabi is a 6-month-old German Shepherd x Labrador Retriever mix who weighs 23 lbs. Are you feeling under-appreciated? Abu Dhabi is here to shower you with adoring gazes! This sweet, gentle pup loves to cuddle and enjoys belly rubs. Expect a happy, wagging tail every time he sees you. Abu Dhabi is looking for a calm home who is excited to give him the love, time, and patience he needs to trust and come out of his shell. The reward will definitely be worth it! Abu Dhabi loves to follow his people around the house, though he needs to be comfortable with each room before he’s willing to enter it. One of his favorite things is stretching out in the grass. He’s also a big fan of squeaky toys. When it’s time to play, Abu Dhabi is ready to go and tons of fun! When it’s time to relax, he’s chill and happy to lounge with you. He’s a great mix of energetic and calm. In his foster home, Abu Dhabi is a late riser. He sleeps in his crate until about 9:30 am, then heads out to potty and hang outside with his foster parent on the glider couch. He loves the attention and quality time; this dog definitely knows what’s most important in life! He has breakfast about 10 am, then his human goes about their daily routine, leaving the sliding door open so that Abu Dhabi can come and go inside and outside as he pleases. He loves to relax in his crate while his foster watches TV. He also enjoys his walks. Abu Dhabi lives with a foster dog who is 15 years old and does very well. He tried to interact with the dog, but due to age, the resident dog wasn’t interested, so Abu Dhabi just respected his boundaries. Abu Dhabi does well on leash; he only pulls when heading back home, as he is excited to get there. He needs time and patience on walks, as all the sights and sounds are new to him and loud noises can be frightening. He’s making progress and needs more walks to build confidence.  House training is a work in progress. Though he has access to the outdoors at all times, he often forgets to go outside. A consistent schedule of walks and opportunities to potty should help with this. Abu Dhabi is not a barker; he doesn’t bark at visitors and tends to “speak” up only when he’s playing or left outside alone for over 45 minutes. He does like to dig when he smells something in the ground. He’s teething and should be supplied with appropriate chew toys. Abu Dhabi is a sweet, loving, sensitive boy who is excited to join his forever family. He has TONS of love to give and can’t wait to have a special place in someone’s heart. Abu Dhabi is only an option for homes that have had a dog of their own in the last three years. If there are any children in the home, they need to be over the age of 10. show less

He's energetic and playful outside and super chill inside. He tends to reflect the personality and activity level of his people. Want a dog who can go on a hike? Ok, here you go. Want a dog who hangs out with you all day while you binge watch Netflix? Yup, that's him. Burrito is such a lap dog! Burrito loves being petted and will follow you around the house and loves to fall asleep next to you on the couch while watching TV. Burrito sleeps in his crate at night and only whines a little before he dozes off and sleeps through the night. Burrito is a total foodie. He's insecure with people around his food as he's just learning that people aren’t trying to take his food away from him. He does best eating his food in his crate and he's perfectly happy. It provides a sense of security for him. Housetraining? Dude has only had one accident in the house and that was his first day in his foster home. Yahoo! Go Burrito! Go Burrito! Burrito loves chew toys especially the ones that squeak. He likes plush chew toys better than crunchy ones just so you can make your shopping list. Burrito is so a dog who could go to work with his new mom or dad when they open up again. Right now when they're working at home, he falls asleep in his bed and just hangs out. He is not a huge barker so he could be a dog who lives in an apartment or condo setting. Burrito is also a dog who can go to a home and be someone's only dog. He has lived with other dogs and came into our rescue with another dog but in one home he had difficulties with dogs. He needs a home that is boundary driven and is willing to give him and dogs a chance to get to know each other and acclimate. Burrito is only an option for those who age had a dog of their own as an adult. If there are children in the home they need to be over the age of 8. show less

She is as friendly as can be and will jump into your arms the moment you meet her. She loves to snuggle up next to her foster family for the occasional belly rub, follow her foster momma from room to room, and play in the yard with her foster dad. She is a playful barker, but not a nuisance one, and is fully crate trained. She is still working on basic commands and not grabbing snacks off the table when her foster family is eating. She is fantastic on a leash and loves to sniff as she goes, exploring her neighborhood. She is very playful and loves to do zoomies around her house, but enjoys snuggling in the sunshine as well. She will be a great work from home buddy for her forever family! Her ideal home would be ready for plenty of playtime, as well as chill time on the sofa, and needs to be fully prepared for dishing out belly rubs.  Buttercup is only an option for homes that have had a dog of their own as an adult. If there are children in the home, they need to be over the age of 6.   show less

We will also post at the end of the evening the names of those dogs who have been adopted: www.facebook.com/DPSRescueAdoption Fee: $600 Chad is a 2-year-old Terrier mix who weighs 12.5lbs. Wait for it...they’re coming...ready? CUDDLES! Chad is a big-time snuggler, and he’s not afraid to admit it. Your Netflix binge buddy and summer afternoon nap partner is here! This guy loves to be close to you - whether on walks, in the kitchen, or at home.  The only thing Chad asks for in return is a little time to warm up. At first, he wants to follow you everywhere to make sure you’re ok, but he’s quickly learning that he can just hang out while you go to the bathroom or get a drink of water. After some initial shyness, Chad grows very attached! In his foster home, Chad sleeps through the night in his crate, and his people wake him up around 8:30 am for a short walk, then feed him breakfast. He’s sometimes interested in food, sometimes not. He hangs out, then gets a walk around 1 pm, dinner at 5 pm, and a short run around 6 or 7 pm. He gets a final chance to go potty around 10:45 pm, then goes to bed. Throughout the day he enjoys resting in his crate, on the couch, or on the floor. Every once in a while he will pick up a toy, but generally, his people and walks are much more interesting! As Chad has grown more confident, he’s become quite the communicator. He whines a bit when one of his people leaves, though he definitely settles down. He just wants to let you know he’ll miss you. He loves to wag his tail excitedly to let you know he’s happy to see you or when you call him over to you. Who’s a good boy? Chad is! Going for walks is one of Chad’s favorite activities, and he is mastering the leash. He’s learning to stay next to his human and on pace with his walker. When another dog or person approaches, Chad’s unsure. He doesn’t know yet if strangers - human or dog - are friends, and he needs continued help to feel secure and confident on leash. He’s house trained and will let you know with a little whimper when he needs to go out. Chad is also crate trained and will wander in for some quiet, alone time during the day. Rarely he will whine a bit before settling in at night, but most of the time he just curls right up and heads to doggy dreamland! Chad is super well-behaved at home. He’s not a nuisance digger, barker, or chewer. He does, however, enjoy chew toys. He will bark once or twice a day. He hasn’t had a chance to meet kids yet. He’s generally gentle, though he is learning that there are better ways than jumping to express love! Chad is also learning that human food is not for him and just needs continued patient guidance to understand this. Ideally, since he absolutely loves affection, Chad would love to be the only dog and have multiple people around to hang out with. He could be a great running partner too! One quirk worth mentioning is that Chad is not currently a fan of car trips as he has thrown up on each one so far, regardless of whether he is in a crate or not. However, he has only been on 3 trips so far, so who knows what the future holds? Chad is an option for those who have owned a dog as an adult. If there are children in the household, they should be over the age of 10. show less

She was an owner relinquish to our rescue because her previous home could no longer take care of her. She is about 8 years old and has a lovely fluffy coat which she enjoys being brushed. She has a sweet temperament but may present a little shy at first. We are looking for a home that will give her an appropriate amount of time to settle in.  She gets along well with small breed dogs and we think she would do fine with another cat that is good natured like her. She would be an excellent match for a retired person or couple or someone that works from home. Once she trusts you, she loves attention and sleeping under the covers with you in bed or enjoying couch time while you are on a Netflix binge. She likes to play with her toy mice but her energy isn't over the top. She has a great balance of spunk and chill. She would make a wonderful addition to someone's life or home. If you think Dee Dee could be your girl, apply to adopt her today! She has been spayed, current on vaccines, tested negative for FIV/FeLV, dewormed, flea treatment applied and microchipped.

We will also post at the end of the evening the names of those dogs who have been adopted: www.facebook.com/DPSRescueAdoption Fee: $600 Dubai is a 1 1/2 year old German Shepherd mix who weighs 35 lbs. He was one of our rescues from Mexico. This sweetheart is super loving and adores affection and attention. He’s playful and loves to give kisses. A darling little paw boop is his favorite way of saying hi and letting you know he wants some pets. He’s playful and full of happy energy. If you’re looking for an active adventure buddy, Dubai may be your guy! He’s a bundle of fun and, at the same time, learning that he doesn’t have to be responsible for keeping his people and property safe. He’s looking for a confident, experienced adopter who will continue to make him feel secure in the world. Dubai is an absolute sweetheart; he warmed up to his foster in less than a day, then was right by her side and ready to trust. He loves to lick you and jump up to show his affection. Wherever you are, he wants to be there too, though he is getting a bit more independent and showing a willingness to be in rooms other than his people. He likes to sleep next to his person but is happy sleeping on the floor by himself too. He takes time to trust new people, and he seems especially skeptical of older men. Treats definitely help to gain trust! Dubai is intimidated by younger children, so should be in a household with teenagers and above. Dubai absolutely adores other dogs off-leash. In typical puppy fashion, he loves wrestling and chasing and will play for hours. On leash, Dubai needs training to understand that dogs are not a threat. His immediate reaction when encountering a new dog is to raise his hackles and growl, but when he actually meets the dog, he is happy, polite, and playful. His adopter should have experience with leash training. In terms of heeling, he’s great! He’s not a puller. He is working on crate training; he’s done well if his his foster mom stayed close or in the building, but when she leaves, he cries. Dubai is on his way to being house trained. He’s super good at holding it through the night, but needs a regular schedule during the day to avoid accidents. In his foster home, Dubai wakes up around 7 am to go to the bathroom right away, then has breakfast. He hangs out with his foster mom while she works, then they go out for a long walk and bathroom in the middle of the day. Lunch is at 12-1 pm. After work, they go for a longer walk, then dinner at 5-6 pm. In the evenings, Dubai enjoys a good play session and hang out before bed at 10 pm. Dubai is an awesome mix of energetic and chill. He likes to do the 'zoomies' where he runs around the apartment in circles about once a day and enjoys going for a walk about 4 times a day. At the same time, he also likes to sleep and chill or hang out on his blanket and play with his toys. He has a chair by the window next to his foster’s mom’s desk so he can sit near her and look out the window; it’s one of his favorite activities. Dubai, like all puppies who are teething, loves to chew! He’ll chew his toys and anything else he can get his paws on, so his new adopter will need to be vigilant. He’s a barker who likes to alert his people to noises and people outside. He will either need guidance to stop this or an adopter who appreciates this protection. Dubai would be a wonderful addition to an active family who is dog savvy and will appreciate Dubai’s sweet and protective nature. He’d be up for any kind of adventure! Worth noting is that Dubai currently gets severely carsick on any length car ride. Any adopter would need to expect this and work with their vet if they would like to take him on rides. Dubai is seeking a home that has had a dog as an adult and has more than an average dog savviness. If there are children they need to be over the age of 8. show less

She came into our rescue with puppies. You know, the Berry litter. She's the 'Elder' Berry. Get it? How fun is that?! She was a stray that was picked up very pregnant by a woman who secretly kept her even knowing she couldn't have a dog, let alone the bundles of joys that were coming. She wasn't willing to take her to the shelter without knowing what was going to happen to her. So she searched for her previous home and, in the meanwhile, got ready for the onset of puppies. Alas, no one claimed Mom, and the puppies came. About the time they were very mobile and noisy, the landlord came around and, well, they all came to us shortly after that. Are you looking for a sous-chef, office sidekick, or lounge buddy? Elderberry is ready and willing to fill all three positions simultaneously, and the only compensation she wants is belly rubs and snuggles. Her calendar is filling up quickly with naps, treats, ball play, walks, and food, so don’t hesitate to reach out! Elderberry is a sweet, gentle soul who is looking for someone patient and understanding to help her continue to find her confidence. She just wants to please. Already she has learned how to play with balls, stuffed toys, and even a squeaky toy. Playing brings out the puppy-like joy in her; she definitely has a goofy side. When you give Elderberry the time to introduce her to new things, she blossoms. She eats like no one's business. Yet also is very gentle and knows to sit and wait for her meals. She’s learning that counter-surfing isn’t necessary. She doesn’t need to worry anymore about getting enough food. Elderberry also needs an experienced, calm, and confident handler on leash. She has not had a lot of work on leash before coming into our rescue. She's strong and will pull, so having the right 'walking equipment' will be key. By the way, squirrels are highly interesting.  Right now, Elderberry is learning to love walks, though she prefers to go potty in the yard. She is house trained and crate trained but prefers to sleep on the dog bed. When hanging outside, Elderberry doesn’t dig. She likes to alert to people nearby, but stops after one bark and is easily redirected. Elderberry’s perfect home is one with structure, routine, patience, and love.  Elderberry recently joined a new foster and has had a blast playing with their dogs. We thought she was just a co-exister with other dogs, but she's more playful than she let on. So if your dog is looking for a playmate, well, shoot, look no further. This girl is ready and waiting... Elderberry is only an option for those who have had a dog as an adult. If there are kids, they need to be over the age of 12 and dog savvy. show less

He is hypoallergenic which makes him a great option for those with allergies or just for those who want a dog who doesn't shed. He will need regular grooming. He was such a good boy at the groomer. He was a rescue from the shelter. He was listed as a stray so we don't know his story before us. We do know that he has an amazing future. Now, he doesn't have any teeth (hence his name), but still eats perfectly fine! He had a dental and well, someone did not take good care of his teeth before. Poor dude. But that is in his rear view mirror now and he's happy as a clam. Kinda looks like one too without any teeth! This little dude is ready for a lifetime of attention, and although he may be older, he still has a lot of pep in his step. He is adaptable and easy-going, and still enjoys nice long walks with his foster momma. He is such a joy to all he meets, and just wants love! He is not a nuisance barker but does bark at the door when the bell rings.  He is great on a leash, he just likes to stop and smell the roses along the way. He is good with dogs and cats and is incredibly sweet with his people. He is generally disinterested in toys but enjoys getting active outside and lounging around at home.  He enjoys burrowing under blankets on the couch and likes to sit on chairs near his foster mom while she works. He is a velcro dog, and is not particularly fond of being left alone. He is very sweet and friendly, seemingly always wagging his tail, and is working on housetraining and crate training.  Gummy is a total lap dog. He would give anything to be someone's lap dog. He could easily go to work with Mom or Dad. He could sit in the home office while Mom is making phone calls or working. Gummy is up to being the office mascot as well. He could live in an apartment or condo as well. Oh this little guy is small enough he'd easily fit under the seat if you happen to be flying. We know, not many are but for those few who are, well, here's your dude.Gummy is only an option for homes that have had a dog of their own as an adult.

Our adoption fee is $400-$800. if a biography does not otherwise say then it is $400. We will also post at the end of the evening the names of those dogs who have been adopted: www.facebook.com/DPSRescueAdoption Fee: $450 Jakarta is an 8-10 month old Boxer-Shepherd mix who weighs 38 lbs. He is one of 54 dogs we rescued from Mexico who were living on the streets. We have promised Jakarta he will never have to go back to the rough life he had. This sweet, gentle boy is looking for a calm, quiet, experienced adopter who has worked with very shy and timid dogs. We think with another confident dog in the home we'll see amazing things happen with Jakarta's personality. Jakarta will need love, time, and patience, and he deserves it. We know that with the right person, he will blossom into a wonderful, loving pet. Even though Jakarta is very shy, he is equally gentle. He absolutely loves chewing on toys, but if you offer him a treat, he takes it with such care. Jakarta was very scared when he first arrived in his foster home. He hid under the piano for the entire evening, but eventually, he let his fosters pick him up and carry him to his pen, where he spends every day now. He's made some progress, but he is still a very shy dog.  Jakarta has learned to use the pee pads inside of the crate, but he is still very scared of being outdoors, even in the backyard. He's much more comfortable being in a home environment, meaning that he knows now that he sleeps on a bed, eats from a bowl, and that his pen area is for him. However, he is still very uncomfortable and scared when a human is next to him. He has made some progress with humans, as he rolled over to let his fosters pet his stomach. It seems that with time he will grow to love pets! In his foster home, Jakarta wakes up in the morning, his fosters take away his bed from his pen, and he sits on the mat inside of his pen. They take him outside for about ten minutes after lunch, then he goes back into his pen and naps or chews on toys until dinner. They set his dinner outside of his pen so he will get more used to the area outside of his pen, but he doesn't eat until his fosters aren't looking at him. After dinner, he goes back into his pen and falls asleep. He doesn't use the bathroom when his fosters take him outside, but he has learned to use the pee pads they put inside of his pen. Jakarta's foster parents are working on teaching him leash manners within their home and yard. He's not ready to brave the big world, but this way he is getting introduced to the leash. He pulls a bit so they'll keep working with him. Jakarta is super well-behaved; he is not a nuisance chewer, barker, or digger. He’s a sweet, gentle dog who is looking for a dog savvy, quiet home who wants to love him and help build his confidence. Jakarta needs a home that has had a dog as an adult, has more than average dog savviness, but most importantly, understands working with shy dogs. This is a life-changing opportunity for someone, and it won't just be Jakarta's life that is forever changed. If there are children, they need to be over the age of 12. show less

We will also post at the end of the evening the names of those dogs who have been adopted: www.facebook.com/DPSRescueAdoption Fee: $550 Koi is a 5-year-old Dachshund mix that weighs 13 lbs. This sweet girl is ready for a lifetime of love and growth in her forever home. She is the perfect mix of playful and couch potato. She loves running outside and playing with her toys, but also loves sleeping and knows how to make herself comfortable! She is house trained and waits to be let out, but is still working on her crate training. She is wonderful walking on a leash but pulls to catch up with her dog and human foster siblings when they are walking ahead of her. She likes to bury her toys and food, and while she isn't a nuisance barker, she is occasionally vocal when people or dogs pass by the room and when a stranger or new noise startles her.  She does well with her two furry foster siblings as long as they respect her space. She would likely do best as an only dog in her home but can coexist comfortably with other dogs. She loves her people as well! She is a super snuggly dog, always sleeping by her foster momma's side. She gets incredibly excited when she sees anyone in her family, wagging her tail furiously and crawling towards them with her back feet dragging behind her, almost as though she is doing the upward facing dog yoga pose! Koi is only an option for homes that have had a dog of their own in the last 5 years. If there are any kids in the home, they need to be over the age of 10 and dog savvy.  show less

We will also post at the end of the evening the names of those dogs who have been adopted: www.facebook.com/DPSRescueAdoption Fee: $600 The Lab Puppies are 10-week old Schipperke X Chihuahua mixes. They were rescued from the shelter. We were told they were Lab mixes; we laughed when we arrived and realized they were anything but Labs. But never one to criticize, we decided to call them the 'Lab Puppies' and name them after scientists. Isn't that fun? Their current foster said they are some of the best puppies he has ever had in his home. They are not overly noisy. They are sweet and loving, and they get along with his big dog and little dogs. They are even great with the kittens. We expect them to be in the 15-25lbs range when full grown.  The Lab puppies' current schedule is: 6:30-7:00 am - wake and go outside to relieve themselves. 7:30 am - breakfast. Throughout the day - play in the backyard, cuddle with humans. Lunch at 12:30. Dinner, 5:30. These puppies are lovers and super energetic. They are all playful and tons of fun. Of all of them, the female is the calmest. They absolutely adore people. Big ole love balls, that is the best way to describe them! If their days could be spent just one way, it would be running around and playing, then getting lots of love and attention from people. Here’s a bit about each individual puppy: Albert Einstein: He is definitely the leader of the pack. He has the biggest personality of this trio. He’s got lots of love to give and wants nothing more than to receive attention. He would probably love an active home. Marie Curie: She is the calmest of the group, but as puppies tend to be, she’s still active and playful and loves to run around and enjoy life. Sir Isaac Newton: He is a very playful boy. He is calmer than Albert. He loves cuddles.   The Lab Puppies are only options for those who have had a dog of their own in the last 3 years. We believe that puppies need the most experience to grow up to be well balanced, well tempered, well behaved adult dogs. We do not consider petsitting, roommate's dogs or the family dog to meet the requirement of having a dog of one's own. If there are children in the home, they need to be over the age of 8. show less

We will also post at the end of the evening the names of those dogs who have been adopted: www.facebook.com/DPSRescueLupin is an 8-month-old Italian Greyhound-Chi mix who weighs 10 lbs. This energetic love bug can’t wait to cuddle and play every day in his forever home! Lupin is a happy-go-lucky little guy who loves to play fetch, wrestle, and chase. He’s a super snuggler who always wants to be in the same room with you, yet is also happy just hanging out chewing on a toy. He’s sweet, cuddly, and tons of fun! After a few days of just observing calmly, Lupin opened up and quickly bonded to his foster human. He started to join in on the play with his two doggy foster siblings. His version of fetch means waiting near the thrower, ready to pounce on one of the resident dogs when he brings back the ball! Lupin plays with dogs his own size regularly but recently met some larger size dogs and joined in their playtime. The smaller ones are more fun to wrestle with but he can hang with the big boys! In his foster home, Lupin normally wakes up around 7 am, goes potty, then eats breakfast. He’s a polite, slow eater. He spends most of the day on his foster’s lap or next to them. He enjoys a good play session or two during the day and has an early dinner around 4. He’s learning to indicate when he needs to be let out, but he’s still working on it. He sleeps through the night in his crate as long as he can see you and he’s had enough exercise. He may need to go potty at night. Lupin is a happy explorer who loves a good sniff walk. He loves to take his time and smell everything. He is teething and is still learning what is a toy and what is not. He’s not a barker, unless the resident dogs bark, and he doesn’t seem to be a habitual digger. He was discovered digging once, but it hasn’t recurred. He’s an adorable sweetheart who will make any family happy. Lupin is not a barker. He could easily live in an apartment or condo setting. He could go to work with mom or dad. He will be the hit in the office when life resumes. For now, he'll have to settle for being mayor of social distancing! Lupin is an option for a variety of homes from novice to experienced. If there are children, they need to be over the age of 6. show less

We will also post at the end of the evening the names of those dogs who have been adopted: www.facebook.com/DPSRescueAdoption Fee: $550 Nazareth is a 7-month-old Labrador x Shepherd mix who weighs 44 lbs. He is a part of a group of 54 dogs from Mexico who were rescued in conjunction with another rescue. He will need a home that understands initially he is scared of everyone. It took his foster home 3 days to win him over. The first day he didn't come out of his crate, and the second day he went outside in the yard and stayed. By the third day, he was just opening up to his foster mom. It has taken his foster dad longer to win him over. His new home is one who wants a fiercely loyal dog who will love them like no one else, but it may take time to develop that bond. Are you willing to wait for a love like no other? He is a very sweet, gentle dog. He is very curious and a typical puppy. He is not over the top energetic, just a playful pup. If there are too many people around him he gets scared and runs away. Sudden movements also frighten him. Each day he gets a little more confident and secure. Here’s a bit about his daily schedule: “He usually gets up around 6:00 or 6:30.  We usually take him out right away, and he is really good about going outside.  He has in and out privileges here, but he has had a few accidents in the house. Since then we have made sure that we go out with him at least once an hour and he’s been fine.  For most of the day, he is with us and our dog Jax. He loves Jax and follows him everywhere. Nazareth is definitely happiest with Jax here. Nazareth basically follows Jax everywhere, and since Jax is usually with one of us, people and Jax seem to make Nazareth happiest. He has constant access to the back yard and toys so lots of playing in the yard with toys and chasing Jax.” His fosters are feeding Nazareth twice a day, morning and evening. He gobbles it up pretty fast and usually looks for a bit more. Treats are also given during the day to reinforce desirable behavior, coming when we call him, getting him to follow us outdoors or upstairs, etc. In between the playtime/walks are lots of naps with a little bit of mischief. Nazareth (with help from Jax) made a little hole in his bed and pulled out a bunch of the stuffing.  Naz is playfully energetic but also happy to sit on the couch with you. He really just wants to be around someone. Naz is fairly well house trained with an occasional accident.  Nazareth is only an option for those who have a dog of their own within the last 3 years. He would be best in an adult-only home or a home with teenagers and older.  show less

We will also post at the end of the evening the names of those dogs who have been adopted: www.facebook.com/DPSRescueAdoption Fee: $550 Pit is a 10-month-old Chihuahua x Dachshund mix. He was originally a rescue from the shelter. He’s an easy-going cuddle bug who definitely believes in love at first sight! Being held is his favorite activity, though he’s happy to play too. He’s a mellow, sweet pup whose tail never, ever stops wagging! From the minute his fosters picked him up, Pit was comfortable and ready to snuggle. He’s even-tempered and eager-to-please, and he just gets more and more playful as his confidence grows. He’s a social butterfly who is friendly to everyone he meets. His forever family should love to receive affection and kisses as much as Pit does! If he feels like it’s time for more pets, he likes to wag his tail or give your foot a little lick to remind you that he’s near and ready for more love.  In his foster home, Pit wakes up around 7 am after sleeping through the night in his crate. He goes potty, then hangs out with the resident children (four of them!) until breakfast at 8 am. He trots around the house visiting with everyone to say hello, then watches the landscape work going on outside. He really enjoys playing fetch in the backyard, as well as taking regular walks. The sliding doors to the outside are always open, so he has free reign to wander in and out, but he often prefers to stay inside with his favorite people unless he sees something interesting. Sometimes he likes to run around the backyard by himself.  Pit definitely receives a lot of attention from his large foster family, which he loves, but he’s also happy just to hang out next to you on the floor by the couch or your desk. He’s active, but only in short bursts; it doesn’t take much to wear him down before he naps. He’s a BIG fan of snoozing. Basically, he’s a perfect mix of energy and calm. He’ll make the perfect fun-sized companion to any family.  Pit is only an option for those who have had a dog of their own as an adult. If there are children in the home, they need to be the age of 6 and over. show less

We will also post at the end of the evening the names of those dogs who have been adopted: www.facebook.com/DPSRescue Adoption Fee: $450 Roxy is a 5-year-old Rottie-English Bulldog mix. She is stalky but not a large girl. She was found in abandoned in a vineyard. We agreed to take her in. She is fabulous with people. Her whole life revolves around loving her people. Despite her stalky stature, she is actually fairly athletic. She loves to play. Her fosters have regaled us with fabulous tales of adventures in the yard and the beach: 'One of her favorite games is a running game where I sprint from one end of the yard to the other. To keep the jumping and excitement from being too out-of-control (and jumping on people), I introduced a 'sit' at each endpoint of the yard. After a few laps, on her own she started volunteering a paw too! So the game is now run-sit-shake-run-sit-shake. She gets so amped up but knows that she's not supposed to jump on us, so she often does a flying 360-degree jump before she sits. I'm hoping we can introduce a ball into the game to show her that she can chase a ball, not just Eric and me!' 'Roxy absolutely lost her mind, in the best way possible, when we went to the beach. I've never seen her so energetic and excited. I only wish I could run as fast as she can--I was definitely the weakest link when it came to sprinting down a sand dune together. Eric and I paraglide. So I hung out with her on the ground while Eric was in the air. At first, she had only a passing interest in the paraglider. But when Eric landed and she realized who it was, everything changed. From that point on, she stopped chasing seaweed and started watching Eric. Whenever he landed, she got super excited and ran over to him (again, so much slower than she would have if she didn't have to wait for me on the slow end of the leash--sorry Roxy!). She was happy and tired when it was time to come home. Fun fact: In helping her get some sand out of her paws, we realized she has webbed toes!' Roxy prefers to be Queen of her Castle. She is a dog who wants to live by herself, without other dogs, and just be loved by her people. She doesn't need dog parks or doggy day camp. She is perfectly satisfied at home. Her foster has been working diligently with her on leash-reactivity. She has done well, but her new home will need to continue if they plan to walk her in neighborhoods or other places where dogs frequent. She is not a dog who requires walks. She is just as happy to play in the yard. Roxy is a professional napper. She loves to lounge and hang out inside while her people are working during the day. She is an ideal dog to hang out and just do her own thing while Mom and/or Dad are working during the day and need her to be independent. For the single folks who may like the idea of a dog who would make a stranger pause before coming into the house unwelcomed, our girl is happy to accommodate. Her mere presence will intimidate bad people. Roxy is house trained. She has never had an accident in her foster's home. At night she has a routine. It caught her foster home off guard that she literally knows her bedtime and off she goes each night: 'Maybe the cutest thing is that she has a self-imposed bedtime routine. We're usually in the living room working or watching TV in the evenings. Around 9:45-10:00 pm, she gets up from whatever napping spot she's been in, drinks some water, gets some head scratches from both of us, then walks into her crate. I just about died when I realized she was doing the same thing at the same time every night, checking in with us before going to bed! It's the cutest routine.' Roxy has proven that life with her is amazing. She is ready and willing to join her new home. She is ready to spread her love: 'Roxy's super smart and has quickly learned to sit for her leash whether it's taking it on or off. She also is a champion at sit-stay for mealtime which she scarfs down as soon as we say, 'Ok!'She started offering us her paws, so we've added 'shake' to the mix. She often chooses to greet me in the morning with lots of wiggles and a couple of shakes--one with each paw. In an adorable moment last night, Eric reached out to hold my hand, and as soon as Roxy saw us holding hands, she raised a paw toward my other hand. She gave her other paw to Eric, and there we were, all holding hands in the living room. I know every dog is the best dog in the world, but Roxy is especially the best dog in the world.' https://www.instagram.com/roxy.rocks.out/ Roxy is only an option for those who have had a dog of their own as an adult.
