Billie is ready for the next chapter of his life! Billie would love to join a family that takes him on adventures like those he's enjoying in his foster home. Billie will ride in a crate in the car quietly and has been great on longer car rides. He has been hanging out with another Husky mix in his foster home and he seems to really enjoy life with another dog. Billie has met dozens of dogs in our care and he is quite playful. In his foster home Billie has even ignored small dogs that were being barky and rude to him.
Billie is typical of many Huskies in that he needs to get to know you at least a little bit before you see his more affectionate side. Luckily, it's pretty easy to build trust with Billie. Currently, Billie is in foster with a couple of our amazing volunteers and they are even taking him to dog training classes! So Billie is learning skills that will help him transition into your home. His foster family has learned that Billie is great at settling down when you're busy and has even joined them on outings to a few restaurants with outdoor seating and he just curls up for a snooze. Billie already walks pretty well on leash - after the first few minutes of excitement - he knows sit, down, touch and wait and is a great walking with other dogs on leash.

Where are our big dog lovers?? This gentle giant boy will not disappoint, as long as your family and house are sturdy enough for his occasional adolescent jumping up. Get ready for big loving, big leaning and endless affection...maybe followed by a nap.
Now, if you're looking for a hiking buddy or an agility dog, please move on to one of our more active residents. Bear is strong but he's not energetic. A nice, long walk where he can sniff things and see the world is more his speed.
Given his size, he's actually pretty manageable on leash. Just be ready if he sees something exciting, because there's nothing quite like being pulled over by a 100+ pound dog in hot pursuit of a deer.
Here at the shelter Bear loves all the people he's met and is appropriate with other dogs of various sizes (we have yet to find his size match, however) though not interested in playing. He may be fine in a household with another well-matched dog but could be a solo pup as well. Learn about Mastiffs before you come meet Julius, as they have distinct temperaments and are typically protective by nature. They're also sensitive (yes, a sensitive giant!), which makes Marin Humane's positive reinforcement training a perfect fit. Sign up for Family Dog 1 and watch your new relationship blossom!
Javier is a gentle, quiet soul who needs a slow approach. He is very affectionate, loves petting and really opens up with a gentle, slow approach. He feels safe in his hidy places, but readily comes out to visit us.
Javier has a big purr, enjoys attention and loves ear and cheek rubs. He will roll on his side rubbing against your legs or sit with his front paws on your lap for more petting. He is a social eater and likes to visit some and then go eat some.
Javier prefers a quiet, calm vibe and will do best in a calm, quiet adult home with no other pets. Are you a shy cat whisperer? Then give us a call and we will be happy to tell you more about this sensitive, sweet guy!
Jake and Elwood are currently in a foster home- please call and leave a message at 415-506-6225 to schedule an appointment to meet!
Jake and Elwood...won't bring you the blues...they will do just the opposite! These two cute gp's are ready for their new home. Brought here because the couple seperated and neither could keep them. Both are a bit shy and you'll need to go nice and slow to pick them up. But they are quickly getting used to hands reaching in for them.
Overall they are really sweet but not for someone new to gp's. Why? Because Elwood is a long haired gp and not for everyone. He'll need grooming to make sure he stays clean and fresh smelling. That means brushing every few days to avoid mats. And the occasional trimming of fur in the back for extra cleanliness. Our staff can show you how to trim his hair. (It's not very hard but he does require extra attention.)
GP pairs can never have enough space. They require the largest enclosure possible and one that is about 4'x6'. We recommend a C&C set-up or something similar. Of course they should get out of the enclosure to run around safely indoors. This will help keep them healthy and provides good mental stimulation. If you think these two are for you call and set-up an appointment. They will have you singing ...not the blues though..in no time!
Tune into Marcus & Corey every Friday to meet more animals that could be your family's next pet.
