Personality: Charlie is a smart and brave senior dog. Charlie is reliably housebroken. At his foster home, he has been on a regular routine with his walk. 1) early morning right after he wakes up, 2) late afternoon/evening before the sun goes down. He also has a toilet spot in the backyard and uses the place in the afternoon while he's at home. He has four dog beds and one of them is a crate. He has used the crate for his sleeping bed at night time. The crate door is always left open. Charlie has been left home alone for around 2 hours, with no issue. He may be alone longer than 2 hours, but he hasn't experienced it yet since his foster works from home. He hasn't shown any separation anxiety issues. He was shy when meeting new people and when first going into his foster home. Now that he's more comfortable he enjoys going for walks. Dog Skills: Charlie may be shy with new dogs but enjoys the company of peaceful coexisters. Cat Skills: Charlie did well with the cat in his foster home but sometimes chased birds.Leash Skills: When Charlie first went into his foster home he was afraid to walk on a leash. The longer he's been in the foster home the more confident he's become and the more he is enjoying going for walks. Medical: Charlie may have allergies to common things in his environment such as pollens, grasses, and dust mites. As a response to these allergies, dogs with this condition tend to develop itchy skin and ear infections. We have treated him with an injection called Cytopoint that targets the proteins that cause itching and he has responded very well. We recommend that his adopter visits a vet within two weeks of adoption to discuss further care. Charlie had a dental cleaning recently at HSSV. The teeth were evaluated for fractures and periodontal disease. Teeth that were determined to be unhealthy were removed. Dental care is an on-going process that will need to be addressed for the life of this patient. Charlie also has luxating patella's. This means that his knee cap on the right hind leg may spontaneously pop out of place, resulting in lameness and pain. At this time, his luxating patella is a Grade 1 out of 4 (where 1 is the least severe and 4 is the most severe). This means that the knee cap is loose and may move in and out of place spontaneously as he walks. Typically, dogs with luxating patellae walk normally until the patella moves out of place and then hop or skip for a few steps until it spontaneously returns to normal position. He is not on any medication for this condition currently. I am sponsored by Ginger Jiang!Ready to meet Charlie?

Personality: Cheeto is a super playful guy who enjoys multiple play sessions per day if you're up for it. He's great at supervising chores, sleeping while the TV blares, and jumping up high to catch his favorite wand toys during playtime. He gets really invested in play sessions, and can sometimes get mouthy if you stop paying attention to him during play so keep your eyes on this prize! Cheeto isn't a cuddle bug, but he's tolerant of being picked up and will do "drive-bys" where he'll rub against your legs affectionately. History: Cheeto has been a sweet and spicy treat while in his foster home. His foster mom thinks he would do great with agility or clicker training to keep him entertained and mentally stimulated. Cat/Dog Skills: This cheesy boy doesn't always get along well with others and would do best in a home with no other cats. Cheeto has no known history with dogs though, so we cannot say how he will react around them. Medical (If Applicable): Cheeto has moderate gingivitis (inflammation of the tissues around the teeth). These cats can benefit from daily brushing of the teeth to remove the plaque if they'll tolerate it and from regular dental cleaning of the teeth by a veterinarian. The adopting family should have this condition monitored by their family veterinarian. Ready to meet Cheeto?

Personality: Cougar is a super affectionate, sweet, easy-going lovable cat who cannot get enough of you. His favorite thing to do is sit on your lap and give you hugs. As soon as you sit down, he will climb in your lap and purr. He is a great companion when you want to chill out and watch tv. One of his other favorite things to do is to give you head butts. History: Previously has been an indoor/outdoor cat however he must be an indoor-only cat in his next home due to a medical condition. Cat/Dog Skills: No known history around other cats.Medical: Cougar has tested positive for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) on a routine screening test. FIV-positive cats frequently appear healthy for many years and may live a full lifespan with proper veterinary and preventive care. FIV positive cats must be kept indoors to limit the potential spread of the virus. He was also treated for ruptured eardrum in his left ear secondary to an ear infection, his eardrum is in the process of healing and he is expected to do well. When Cougar arrived he presented with bleeding in the front part of his Right eye. His eye is looking better after treatment and the bleeding has stopped and is healing. He is not on any medications at this time. I am sponsored by Kathleen Egnor!Ready to meet Cougar ?

Personality: Finn is an affectionate, active young dog who is eager to be with people and play with dogs. He is energetic, food motivated, and looking for a family who can help teach him his manners. He may excitedly greet people by jumping up but does well once given sufficient exercise outlets. Finn also enjoys cuddling and being near his people. History: Finn came to us from a shelter in the Central Valley. Dog skills: Finn regularly does parallel walks with other social, tolerant dogs as he cannot yet have off-leash play due to his healing leg fracture. Finn enjoys trying to solicit play with other dogs and can be vocal, forward, and jumpy. Finn does best with very tolerant, social dogs who can handle his bossy, rude play style. Cat skills: Finn has shown interest when he sees a cat and is willing to chase. He will pull strongly on leash. Leash skills: Finn pulls on the leash and would benefit from a harness. Medical: Finn arrived at HSSV with a fractured left leg. The leg was splinted for several weeks and the fracture is healing well per his most recent recheck x-rays. His exercise had been restricted as the fracture healed, and we are now slowly increasing his activity over the next 4 weeks. His muscle strength and use of the leg should improve over the next few weeks provided the exercise is increased slowly. We are currently providing him with 20 minute leash walks 2-3 times daily and he should not be allowed to jump on or off furniture. The adopting family should anticipate that he may need recheck x-rays at the end of the healing process and possibly after this time as recommended by your veterinarian.Ready to meet Finn?
