My name is Rachelle and these are photos I took of my dog, Zip. He is a two year old Rat Terrier. I rescued him but really he rescued me. He is cuddly, well behaved, loving and smart (and photogenic of course). I couldn’t dream of a better best friend and I don’t know how I lived without him! Submitted by Rachelle R.
This is my boy Teddy. He is three months old. (Submitted by John G.) Pugs were brought from China to Europe in the 16th century. Pugs are known for being sociable and gentle companions. The breed is often described by the Latin phrase multum in parvo, or “much in little” or “a lot of dog in a small space,” alluding to the Pug’s remarkable and charming personality, despite its small size. They are very fond of children, and eager to please their owners. Pugs are often called “shadows” because they follow their owners around and like to stay close to the action, craving attention and affection from their people. They also tend to spend a lot of time napping.
Oreo has been with us for 13 months now. She is very energetic! She loves her stuffed animals… I think it’s just to find what’s inside. Every morning when she goes outside (before doing her business) she finds something to chase… a bird, squirrel, bug, frog anything. She’s just the most adorable thing ever! Submitted by Bashia K.
Meet Oreo! Oreo lives on the beautiful island of St. Maarten. As an island dog, Oreo loves to go to the beach, eat, and explore nature! Besides chasing lizards and protecting us from the garbage truck, Oreo finds pleasure in playing with his bother TJ. He is just a playful ball of energy that loves a good belly rub, a nice nap, and making every day a fun one. Submitted by Breanna B. Follow Oreo on Instagram @lookitsoreo.
This is Evie, a two year old German Shepherd. She was rescued along with more than 500 other German Shepherds from a breeder who was shut down in southern Georgia. She arrived weighing only 32 pounds, very dirty, had intestinal problems, and was hairless from skin infections. But, that was back in January and things have gotten so much better since then!
She had all of those nasty parasites taken care of. She has had more baths than she would care to count. She has been fed and brushed and loved. Evie has learned how to sit and walk on a leash. She took a scent work class to gain confidence and learn to problem solve. And she has gained 40 pounds! She even learned how to sit and is working on laying down.
Evie gets along with all the other dogs of all sizes in her foster home. She is a little afraid of the cat. She likes everyone, but like many Shepherds, she does like to bark at strangers, especially that sneaky UPS driver that comes. She likes to ride in the car, and does very well in her kennel. She loves to be very close to her people, so snuggling is a must. Her ideal forever home will have another dog for her to play with, a fenced in yard, and a family with Shepherd experience.

Who’s the goodest boy at our shelter? Atlas is! This sweet, three-and-a-half year old German Shepherd mix rides great in the car, knows some tricks and will happily perform them for treats, and is a great leash walker. He’s hoping to catch the eye of someone special soon. Submitted by the Humane Society Silicon Valley.
