These pets are available to adopt, along with a ton of other amazing pets at Marin Humane who deserve a great forever home!
Get to know Ranger:
Happy, Jolly and Bouncy is the best way to describe Ranger. He absolutely loves everyone but if you want to steal his heart give him a treat and he will love you for eternity. But make sure to balance out those treats with lots of exercise- Ranger could stand to lose a few pounds. Good thing he loves his walks! Ranger has played in the dog park in the past but we do not recommend dog parks, creating a play group with dogs he already knows and likes is a much better idea.
Ranger may have a bit of a tough-guy look, but he is a big softy. We think he would be great in almost any kind of home, with or without children; as a solo pup or in a multiple dog household. We have seen some indications of mild anxiety when left alone, so Ranger might need a bit of extra attention and management until he gets to know you and adjusts to his new home. Ranger really is a fun, friendly dog who with make the most loving of companions.
Get to know Wyatt:
Wyatt is our current German Shepherd resident, and quite honestly a month is too long for any dog to be in a shelter, but for a German Shepherd it's WAAAAY TOOO LOOONG!! These dogs are known for their loyalty and need to be with their humans and those needs are not met at a shelter. Wyatt is a young, strong and large dog, and his wants are an active human that has some German Shepherd experience and is ready to take on some training and management to shine him up to be the best canine companion possible. Wyatt is house trained and crate trained, which should make him an easy fit into most homes. We have found him to be pretty dog social with dogs at our shelter. He also is pretty good at that game fetch, so you'll have a built in skill to burn off his energy.
Get to know Jackie & Jane:
Jane and Jackie are a bonded pair who would love a quiet home. They love each other very much and will seek each other out to sleep together. Although they are shy, Jane is already purring and enjoying gentle ear rubs. These lovely ladies may take a little time to become comfortable, but with a little patience and understanding, they will show their wonderful selves.
Get to know Achilles:
Super cute, outgoing and curious Achilles lived with another male guinea pig but he was dominant with him so they had to be separated. His family didn't have space for two cages so he was brought here. Seems like he prefers the single life. Which is fine..it just means his family needs to spend a little bit more time with him.
Achilles is a funny little dude. He sits up on his stool and out in the open to look around. But is a bit shy when you reach in to pick him up. Give him a few minutes to settle, then pet him and then pick him up. He needs a few minutes in your lap to settle down but then he's ready for petting. He's so cute when he gets his hay pile just right and then plops in the middle of it for a nap. Too adorable. We think he'd be fine for a family with older calm children. Too much noise and excitement might make him a bit nervous. Achilles is young and if well cared for should live to be 5-7 years of age.
Tune into Marcus & Sandy every Friday to meet another cat or dog that could be your family's next pet.
