Tyson


  • Name: Tyson
  • Breed: Pit Bull
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large
  • Gender: Male

 

Meet Tyson. He is a 9 month old, 55 lb pit bull mix with beautiful brindle markings. He is a very sweet boy. He loves people and kids and other dogs. He likes to go on walks and hikes, but he doesn’t enjoy the water much. He likes to play fetch especially with his frisbee. He is not a big barker, but will bark when someone comes to the door. He is alert and is a good watch dog. He is potty trained and has very good house manners. Even though he is still a puppy, he limits himself to chewing on his dog toys and hard bones. He is a quick learner and taught himself the dog door on day one. He is living with a large dog and a small dog plus a teenager is his foster home. He is not dominant and defers to both other dogs. Tyson is neutered, microchipped and comes with all his shots and records.

Tyson had an outing at the dog park (which as the foster home, I don’t usually take dogs to the dog park but there is a very nice one with nice dogs over in Santa Cruz). Tyson loved it and he loved meeting other dogs. We went on a nice long walk first then we went to the dog park. He played there for an hour. Big dogs, small dogs, he greeted every single one. He just loves other dogs.

Tia


  • Name: Tia
  • Breed: Pit Bull
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large
  • Gender: Female

 

Tia is a darling 5 year old, spayed Pit Bull, with an exceptionally kind and sweet demeanor. As a rescue dog, she’s been through a lot; yet she shows love towards anyone she meets. She really enjoys hanging out with her human family, including older children. She currently is a part of all of our family gatherings, and is always happy to be the center of attention. Tia is also an active and playful girl. She needs daily exercise and loves going for long walks. She’s also good at retrieving, and is always willing to drop the ball in return for a treat. She travels well in the car too.

Tia is house trained and sleeps comfortably through the night in her bed. She has learned basic commands (come, sit, stay, down) and she would benefit from additional training to be the well-behaved dog as she could be. She is being socialized with other dogs and does well with any dog, large or small. She is extremely food motivated and is willing to do anything for a treat.

As much as she loves food, Tia does not show any aggressive behavior towards food or any high value treats. Tia has chronic dry-eyes (a condition known as KCS – keratoconjunctivitis sicca) and will require daily eye drops for the rest of her life. She also suffers from atopic allergies (such as from grass) that will need to be cared for with daily medication as well.

Tia is a true gem and has stolen our hearts. She’s truly precious and deserves a forever home that will love and pamper her as part of the family.

SPECIAL NOTE: KUDOS and Gratitude to everyone who helped to support Tia’s rescue: San Jose Animal Care & Services (SJACS – Guardian Angel Program), San Jose Animal Advocates, PAWS for SJACS (Pet Awareness and Welfare Society), Dr. Karin Rapal DDS and staff, many individual donors, and Kaajal Tiwary with D for Dog Training. We are still accepting donations to offset Tia’s medical expenses. Please indicate your donation to go towards Tia.

Cody


  • Name: Cody
  • Breed: Chihuahua
  • Age: Puppy
  • Size: Small
  • Gender: Male

 

Cody is a cute little Chihuahua puppy, who’s about 7 months old. He is very playful with his toys and with kids. He is very smart dog – he sleeps well in his crate, he is fully potty trained, with no accidents in the house.

Cody is very loving and playful. He goes for walks and becomes friendly with others very quickly. Cody gets excited and wags his tail to meet you to play. We promise you that Cody is going to have a great time with you.

You might have noticed from his pictures that his right eye is smaller and lighter-colored than his left eye. Our veterinarian has examined his eye and it is likely he was born that way. Even though he is unable to see out of his right eye, it certainly doesn’t stop him one bit from being a fun, loving pup. Cody has his vaccinations up to date and also been neutered and microchipped. He’s waiting for his forever home to adopt him today!
