You know those rare souls that are wise, gentle, appreciate life, ooze happiness, and you just love to be around them?
Well, Cassius (Cash) our adorable tri-color hunk is one of them…a true gem.
Cash spent 5 months in the San Jose shelter which is stressful on any dog, but his easy going attitude allowed him to not only stay sane, but show his heartfelt appreciation to every person who took time out of their day to visit him. We came along, fell in love with him and decided it was time for him to break outta the shelter.
He’s now in a loving foster home where he’s adjusted beautifully (no issues whatsoever) and wasted no time taking in and enjoying the finer things in life like soft beds, toys, and lotsa snuggles and kisses. The shelter listed him as 10 but we think he’s younger after he showed us that he likes to play with toys and thinks young puppies can be fun (everything in moderation of course). He’s a well behaved gentleman (with an occasional adorable snort) who still has a playful and goofy side…the best of both worlds.
Cash loves walks, the beach, nibbling on his stuffies in the sweetest way, car rides where he takes in the smells of the great outdoors breezing by his face (did we mention he really, really loves car rides?), and most anything else his humans like to do - including just hanging out at home next to his people, and soaking up all the love that was in short supply for so long. He’s now regularly strolling the streets of Burlingame where he’s outnumbered by the doodles, but doesn’t let that bother him - as he’s too busy saying hello to everyone he meets, and welcoming all the compliments he gets on his unique hunky look and exceptional manners.
Cash is fully housetrained, large and small dog friendly with respectful dogs, likes kids, and knows some basic commands - but his innate joy and easy going temperament is what really makes him shine!
If you think Cash might be a good fit for your home and are interested in meeting him please fill out his adoption application here and we’ll get back to you shortly.
If Laughter is the Best Medicine - Luna is Your Refillable Rx!
PACC is pleased to introduce Luna (aka Looney Bin / BIN!). This large (72 lb) cutie girl, believed to be an Am Staffie, possible Boxer, your best guess blend, is ~1.5 years old, spayed, vaxed, microchipped and is being pressured by her peer group to hit the stand-up comedy circuit. She'd consider it, but is looking for more security than that as she's done a few circuits and is ready to settle in a steady, reliable, predictable, children and feline free home. Her orange and white coloring with splashes of black on her snout are STRIKING! This girl is a big, bouncy bundle of JOY! Always happy to see you when you come in the door, she wants a FULL BEAR HUG every time and we are happy to oblige. Looney Bin loves to play tug & fetch and to live her days on the trails or on the couch. She's not an over-doer so if you're hellbent on logging more than 15,000 steps a day consider Blizz, PACCs husky boy also up for adoption (see below).
Speaking of Blizz, he and Luna hit it off great cause she does best with similarly sized rough and tumble dogs (read wrestlers, body slammers, chest bumpers). She will overwhelm the gentle dainties. If you have one or more rough and tumble type dogs, PACC will help ensure this girl is a good fit. Luna's foster/caretaker, who meets A LOT o'dogs, says she's not sure she's ever met a more interesting dog. "Just to watch her sunbathe or play is so entertaining and funny. She will make whoever opens their heart and home have at LEAST 3 laughing outbursts a day." And let’s be real, don’t we all need some of that in this place and time we find ourselves in? Throw a red nose on Looney Bin and call her slappy the clown cuz she is ready to perform as soon as you make eye contact.
Given her size, exuberance, and rough and tumble play style, PACC is searching for an adult / adult teen only home for this family clown. If this girl sounds like a good fit with your situation, complete the adoption application below and we'll be in touch!
Cassie is a super easy peasy, cuddly, girl who's perfectly content hanging out with her favorite people at home, sunbathing in the yard, and going for easy walks (she loves her walkies), but doesn't need any strenuous hikes. Cassie’s super power is brightening people's hour, day, life depending on how long you spend with her. She's therapy without the bill. She soaks up the ooo's and aww's that are pretty much everyone's innate reaction to meeting her. So if you have a lotta love to give, and can use some unconditional love back - you're lucky you're reading this post.
Roughly 6 years old, spayed, vaxed, and chipped, Cassie is what we call a low-riding, adorable little hippo / pittie blend. Her favorite things might be yours too: sleeping in, nice quiet meals, snuggling and cuddling, napping in ray of sunshine, and going for fun walks that don't take up your whole day. If you are more a reader than a runner, prefer podcasts to pilates, or just don't need a dog to go everywhere with you, Cassie just might be your girl. And, if you gotta work or spend time away from home she understands and will just chill till you come home, greeting you at the door with her signature smile and wiggly tail greeting.
This little package is a low maintenance girl so if you aren't as active as you think you should be - drop the guilt and cuddle up with Cassie.
If Cassie sounds like a good fit with your situation (ideally a home with a fenced yard) give a shout out to Cassie by completing the adoption application below and we will be in touch once it's received.
Meet Rhett, the newest member of our PACC. Rhett hails from Montara Mountain where he and his sister were found thin, wandering, and very hungry.
Rhett's super friendliness potentially saved his life as he came running to the good samaritan who called him and it was mutual love at first sight. Which is pretty much the case with everyone who meets Rhett. He's just got the love vibe going on ❤️.
At ~10 months old, medium and growing (xx lbs), a neutered male husky, up to date on vax and microchipped - Rhett will likely land in the medium / large category once done growing. He is what we call a LAFSO dog - leaner and foot sitter on-er. Just in time for winter, Rhett can compete with even the coziest warm slippers. Despite his looks, he is still a puppy, but so his new family will need to fine tune the already impressive work his foster family has done in house training and avoiding puppy chewing. Happily he prefers chew toys to couches which cannot be said of all big puppy's! Rhett gets 4 out of 5 stars on the good puppy, soon to be dog front and PACC will provide easy guidance to get him to that 5th star!
Rhett is super fun to explore the great outdoors with as he loves daily adventures that involve his two favorite things - meeting new people and meeting new dogs (big and small alike). He is even tolerant of the little yappies that PACC loves, but not all dogs do. PACC is looking for an active family accustomed to the strength that medium to large *sled dogs* can bring. With the right harness though, he walks nicely on leash, *most of the time.
Speaking of most of the time, Rhett has considerable prey drive, possibly accentuated by his time spent *in the great outdoors - living off the land*, hence cats are not recommended.
If you have a thing for four legged, fluffy, adorable, red heads, and Rhett sounds like a good fit with your situation (active home with a fenced yard ideally near open space) - complete the application below and we will be in touch!
Kolbie is that understated guy in the room that doesn't suck up all the air, is happy to listen, wag, and take things in.
Friendly with everyone he meets, he exudes an aura of calm. He's on the mello-er end of the scale for his husky lineage - loves long walks for sure or will chase 4 balls full speed and then call it quits. From there he's content to hang with his people. Kolbie is a pleasure to be around, and you feel lucky and warm in his presence. His past lives strike us as having been interesting, but given he's in a foster home we haven't had much time to pry his previous experiences out of him. They didn't impact him negatively though, cause he's a level headed guy that takes things in stride.
Kolbie is ~2.5 yrs old, large at 60 lbs, neutered, male and believed to be full husky. He's met a few of PACCs pack and was more easily introduced to our chill Rottie girl Zena than our similarly sized, aged and husky lineaged boy Blizz. Kolbie came on a little strong but warmed up nicely and the two boys were soon trotting side by side. That said, we consider Kolbie to be an on-leash dog with occasional off-leash outings in the right settings which we will walk his new family through. He walks very nicely on leash.
PACC is looking for a mid-range active household where Kolbie will be a central part of the family.
Given some evidence of a strong interest in cats, Kolbie is not recommended for homes with our feline friends.
If Kolbie sounds like a good fit with your situation (ideally a house with fenced yard - apartment exceptions for active types and a family looking to add a core member to the household) please complete the application below and we will be in touch.
