    Reba

    Male 7.5 years

    Reba is 14 months old and is a lovely black and red female German Shepherd. She was surrendered to the shelter along with her four fabulous, purebred pups due to her prior owner having "no time." Reba is new, but we know that she is super, super intelligent and loves to play ball and is great with people and handling. She is still a bit on the lean side (56 pounds), most likely due to having puppies and poor nutrition. She is OK with cats and is Ok around other dogs so far. We are still getting to know her, and we will update her bio as we know more. she is crate trained and rides well in the car. Reba has a wound on her foot and we are treating that with our vet, Four Seasons Animal Hospital. She is a long coat, but her body is medium coat. She has AKC papers. Reba is in foster care in Walnut Creek. More

    Ciyo

    Female 8 years

    Click here to see this pretty girl in her video. Ciyo is about 18 months old.  We believe that she is a GSD/Golden Retreiver mix breed.   She is medium large, about 70 pounds.   Ciyo is afraid of her foster home's cat, so she could be easily trained to live with a cat.   She  is very playful with other dogs and is crate trained.   Ciyo does alarm bark but is other wise quiet and does not dig nor chew.    This girl will kiss and kiss and kiss  anyone who wants to love her.   Ciyo is a wonderful cross between a GSD and a Golden Retriever, and is like a Golden in a German Shepherd suit.   Ciyo has not had much formal training, but she is very compliant and very soft natured.
