About Roxy

All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, shots current (DHPP, Bordetella and Rabies where applicable), dewormed, flea and tick treated and microchipped.  * If you are interested in a dog, please first read the biography on the dog (keep scrolling down for the bio!) and then go to our website, www.dpsrescue.com for an application. Our adoption fee is $400-$800. if a biography does not otherwise say then it is $400. We will also post at the end of the evening the names of those dogs who have been adopted: www.facebook.com/DPSRescue Adoption Fee: $450 Roxy is a 5-year-old Rottie-English Bulldog mix. She is stalky but not a large girl. She was found in abandoned in a vineyard. We agreed to take her in. She is fabulous with people. Her whole life revolves around loving her people. Despite her stalky stature, she is actually fairly athletic. She loves to play. Her fosters have regaled us with fabulous tales of adventures in the yard and the beach: 'One of her favorite games is a running game where I sprint from one end of the yard to the other. To keep the jumping and excitement from being too out-of-control (and jumping on people), I introduced a 'sit' at each endpoint of the yard. After a few laps, on her own she started volunteering a paw too! So the game is now run-sit-shake-run-sit-shake. She gets so amped up but knows that she's not supposed to jump on us, so she often does a flying 360-degree jump before she sits. I'm hoping we can introduce a ball into the game to show her that she can chase a ball, not just Eric and me!' 'Roxy absolutely lost her mind, in the best way possible, when we went to the beach. I've never seen her so energetic and excited. I only wish I could run as fast as she can--I was definitely the weakest link when it came to sprinting down a sand dune together. Eric and I paraglide. So I hung out with her on the ground while Eric was in the air. At first, she had only a passing interest in the paraglider. But when Eric landed and she realized who it was, everything changed. From that point on, she stopped chasing seaweed and started watching Eric. Whenever he landed, she got super excited and ran over to him (again, so much slower than she would have if she didn't have to wait for me on the slow end of the leash--sorry Roxy!). She was happy and tired when it was time to come home. Fun fact: In helping her get some sand out of her paws, we realized she has webbed toes!' Roxy prefers to be Queen of her Castle. She is a dog who wants to live by herself, without other dogs, and just be loved by her people. She doesn't need dog parks or doggy day camp. She is perfectly satisfied at home. Her foster has been working diligently with her on leash-reactivity. She has done well, but her new home will need to continue if they plan to walk her in neighborhoods or other places where dogs frequent. She is not a dog who requires walks. She is just as happy to play in the yard. Roxy is a professional napper. She loves to lounge and hang out inside while her people are working during the day. She is an ideal dog to hang out and just do her own thing while Mom and/or Dad are working during the day and need her to be independent. For the single folks who may like the idea of a dog who would make a stranger pause before coming into the house unwelcomed, our girl is happy to accommodate. Her mere presence will intimidate bad people. Roxy is house trained. She has never had an accident in her foster's home. At night she has a routine. It caught her foster home off guard that she literally knows her bedtime and off she goes each night: 'Maybe the cutest thing is that she has a self-imposed bedtime routine. We're usually in the living room working or watching TV in the evenings. Around 9:45-10:00 pm, she gets up from whatever napping spot she's been in, drinks some water, gets some head scratches from both of us, then walks into her crate. I just about died when I realized she was doing the same thing at the same time every night, checking in with us before going to bed! It's the cutest routine.' Roxy has proven that life with her is amazing. She is ready and willing to join her new home. She is ready to spread her love: 'Roxy's super smart and has quickly learned to sit for her leash whether it's taking it on or off. She also is a champion at sit-stay for mealtime which she scarfs down as soon as we say, 'Ok!'She started offering us her paws, so we've added 'shake' to the mix. She often chooses to greet me in the morning with lots of wiggles and a couple of shakes--one with each paw. In an adorable moment last night, Eric reached out to hold my hand, and as soon as Roxy saw us holding hands, she raised a paw toward my other hand. She gave her other paw to Eric, and there we were, all holding hands in the living room. I know every dog is the best dog in the world, but Roxy is especially the best dog in the world.' https://www.instagram.com/roxy.rocks.out/ Roxy is only an option for those who have had a dog of their own as an adult. If there are children in the home they need to be over the age of 6.

We will also post at the end of the evening the names of those dogs who have been adopted: www.facebook.com/DPSRescueAugust is a handsome 5 year old kitty that we rescued from the shelter. The staff there loved him and couldn't bear to think of him being euthanized, so they reached out to us to save him. We got him placed in one of our fabulous foster homes and he has been doing wonderfully. He is the sweetest cat ever, how or why he ended up at the shelter we will never know, but what we do know is he is safe and his future looks bright. He is currently being fostered with a small breed dog and two resident cats. He basically walked into his foster home and acted like he had always lived there, so we think he will probably do the same in his forever home. We have not had him around kids but based on his personality so far, we think he would be gentle with kids as long as they are gentle with him. He is a social cat, he likes to be where you are. He is the meet and greet type, if you have friends or family over, expect him to engage with them as much as he does with you. He has a playful side too, but his real focus is on his human. He will be a great family pet or companion for someone. August has been neutered, tested negative for FIV/FeLV, vaccinated, dewormed, flea treatment applied and microchipped. His adoption donation is $100. show less

We will also post at the end of the evening the names of those dogs who have been adopted: www.facebook.com/DPSRescueAdoption Fee: $500 Burrito is a 2 year old Basenji-Chi mix. He weighs 14lbs. He's energetic and playful outside and super chill inside. He tends to reflect the personality and activity level of his people. Want a dog who can go on a hike? Ok, here you go. Want a dog who hangs out with you all day while you binge-watch Netflix? Yup, that's him. Burrito is such a lap dog! Burrito loves being petted, will follow you around the house, and loves to fall asleep next to you on the couch while watching TV. Burrito sleeps in his crate at night and only whines a little before he dozes off and sleeps through the night. Burrito is a total foodie. He's insecure with people around his food as he's just learning that people aren’t trying to take his food away from him. He does best eating his food in his crate, and then he's perfectly happy. It provides a sense of security for him. Housetraining? Dude has only had one accident in the house, and that was his first day in his foster home. Yahoo! Go Burrito! Go Burrito! Burrito loves chew toys, especially the ones that squeak. He likes plush chew toys better than crunchy ones (just so you can make your shopping list). Burrito is so a dog who could go to work with his new mom or dad when offices open up again. Right now, when they're working at home, he falls asleep in his bed and just hangs out. He is not a huge barker, so he could be a dog who lives in an apartment or condo setting. Burrito is also a dog who can go to a home and be someone's only dog. He has lived with other dogs and came into our rescue with another dog, but in one home he had difficulties with dogs. He needs a home that is boundary driven and willing to give him and dogs a chance to get to know each other and acclimate. Burrito is only an option for those who age had a dog of their own as an adult. If there are children in the home, they need to be over the age of 8. show less

She is as friendly as can be and will jump into your arms the moment you meet her. She loves to snuggle up next to her foster family for the occasional belly rub, follow her foster momma from room to room, and play in the yard with her foster dad. She is a playful barker, but not a nuisance one, and is fully crate trained. She is still working on basic commands and not grabbing snacks off the table when her foster family is eating. She is fantastic on a leash and loves to sniff as she goes, exploring her neighborhood. She is very playful and loves to do zoomies around her house, but enjoys snuggling in the sunshine as well. She will be a great work from home buddy for her forever family! Her ideal home would be ready for plenty of playtime, as well as chill time on the sofa, and needs to be fully prepared for dishing out belly rubs.  Buttercup is an option for homes with a wide variety of experience levels, from novice to expert. If there are children in the home, they need to be over the age of 6.   show less

Our adoption fee is $400-$800. if a biography does not otherwise say then it is $400. We will also post at the end of the evening the names of those dogs who have been adopted: www.facebook.com/DPSRescueAdoption Fee: $600 Daisy is a one-year-old Beagle X Labrador Retriever mix who weighs 44 pounds. She started off relatively shy, but her confidence has increased over time. After the first few days, she started jumping on beds and couches. She can still be a bit shy when approaching new people. She often follows her foster family from room to room unless she is tired. She can be a velcro dog but only because she wants to be in the center of the action. If she hears something, she will often investigate. She loves to give kisses and lick her foster family's faces and hands. She is not much of a cuddler but will snuggle up close by on the bed, the couch, or even on the floor. She has bursts of energy where she loves to play, run, and jump around. She loves to play with any toy you want to play with. Daisy usually wakes up between 6:30 a.m. and 7 a.m. She spends some time out in the backyard by herself and goes potty. After, she comes back inside and usually naps and licks herself like a cat. She eats breakfast around 7:30 a.m., then either goes back to the backyard or naps. Around 9:30 a.m. it's playtime! She loves to run around, which is followed by a 20-40 minute walk. After the walk, she lies around some more. During the day she might wake up to play once or twice, but she mostly naps. During this time, she also does some basic training. In the evening, she likes to play fetch, which is followed by a meal around 7 p.m. After an hour, she gets more playtime and an evening walk that lasts around 45 minutes. Once she is back home, she plays a bit more, then crashes around 9:30 p.m. Finally, she is in her crate at around 10:30 p.m. Daisy is an occasional barker. She tends to bark if she gets startled or if there is someone at the door. She also lets out a whine if she wants something or gets excited. She likes to play with dogs who are similar in size and maybe energy level. Overall she is pretty good on a leash, but she will pull when she sees a cat or a squirrel. She loves to run after balls but does not always bring it back; sometimes she thinks it’s a game when you try to take the ball from her and runs around with it while you chase her. Her foster family is training her to play fetch and drop the ball in exchange for a treat. She is overall relatively well behaved as long as she gets her needed exercise & playtime. Daisy is house trained. She prefers to do her business on grass. The first few days she liked to do her business on walks but eventually got more comfortable going in the backyard. She does not make a peep sleeping in her crate at night, but if her foster family is in the same room during the day, she might make a fuss. She has no trouble using a doggy door. Daisy is an option for homes that have had a dog of their own in the last 10 years. If there are any children in the home, they need to be over the age of 8. show less

She was an owner relinquish to our rescue because her previous home could no longer take care of her. She is about 8 years old and has a lovely fluffy coat which she enjoys being brushed. She has a sweet temperament but may present a little shy at first. We are looking for a home that will give her an appropriate amount of time to settle in.  She gets along well with small breed dogs and we think she would do fine with another cat that is good natured like her. She would be an excellent match for a retired person or couple or someone that works from home. Once she trusts you, she loves attention and sleeping under the covers with you in bed or enjoying couch time while you are on a Netflix binge. She likes to play with her toy mice but her energy isn't over the top. She has a great balance of spunk and chill. She would make a wonderful addition to someone's life or home. If you think Dee Dee could be your girl, apply to adopt her today! She has been spayed, current on vaccines, tested negative for FIV/FeLV, dewormed, flea treatment applied and microchipped.

Our adoption fee is $400-$800. if a biography does not otherwise say then it is $400. We will also post at the end of the evening the names of those dogs who have been adopted: www.facebook.com/DPSRescueAdoption Fee: $600 Dubai is a 1 1/2 year old German Shepherd mix who weighs 35 lbs. He was one of our rescues from Mexico. This sweetheart is super loving and adores affection and attention. He’s playful and loves to give kisses. A darling little paw boop is his favorite way of saying hi and letting you know he wants some pets. He’s playful and full of happy energy. If you’re looking for an active adventure buddy, Dubai may be your guy! He’s a bundle of fun and, at the same time, learning that he doesn’t have to be responsible for keeping his people and property safe. He’s looking for a confident, experienced adopter who will continue to make him feel secure in the world. Dubai is an absolute sweetheart; he warmed up to his foster in less than a day, then was right by her side and ready to trust. He loves to lick you and jump up to show his affection. Wherever you are, he wants to be there too, though he is getting a bit more independent and showing a willingness to be in rooms other than his people. He likes to sleep next to his person but is happy sleeping on the floor by himself too. He takes time to trust new people, and he seems especially skeptical of older men. Treats definitely help to gain trust! Dubai is intimidated by younger children, so should be in a household with teenagers and above. Dubai absolutely adores other dogs off-leash. In typical puppy fashion, he loves wrestling and chasing and will play for hours. On leash, Dubai needs training to understand that dogs are not a threat. His immediate reaction when encountering a new dog is to raise his hackles and growl, but when he actually meets the dog, he is happy, polite, and playful. His adopter should have experience with leash training. In terms of heeling, he’s great! He’s not a puller. He is working on crate training; he’s done well if his his foster mom stayed close or in the building, but when she leaves, he cries. Dubai is on his way to being house trained. He’s super good at holding it through the night, but needs a regular schedule during the day to avoid accidents. In his foster home, Dubai wakes up around 7 am to go to the bathroom right away, then has breakfast. He hangs out with his foster mom while she works, then they go out for a long walk and bathroom in the middle of the day. Lunch is at 12-1 pm. After work, they go for a longer walk, then dinner at 5-6 pm. In the evenings, Dubai enjoys a good play session and hang out before bed at 10 pm. Dubai is an awesome mix of energetic and chill. He likes to do the 'zoomies' where he runs around the apartment in circles about once a day and enjoys going for a walk about 4 times a day. At the same time, he also likes to sleep and chill or hang out on his blanket and play with his toys. He has a chair by the window next to his foster’s mom’s desk so he can sit near her and look out the window; it’s one of his favorite activities. Dubai, like all puppies who are teething, loves to chew! He’ll chew his toys and anything else he can get his paws on, so his new adopter will need to be vigilant. He’s a barker who likes to alert his people to noises and people outside. He will either need guidance to stop this or an adopter who appreciates this protection. Dubai would be a wonderful addition to an active family who is dog savvy and will appreciate Dubai’s sweet and protective nature. He’d be up for any kind of adventure! Worth noting is that Dubai currently gets severely carsick on any length car ride. Any adopter would need to expect this and work with their vet if they would like to take him on rides. Dubai is seeking a home that has had a dog as an adult and has more than an average dog savviness. If there are children they need to be over the age of 8. show less

She came into our rescue with puppies. You know, the Berry litter. She's the 'Elder' Berry. Get it? How fun is that?! She was a stray that was picked up very pregnant by a woman who secretly kept her even knowing she couldn't have a dog, let alone the bundles of joys that were coming. She wasn't willing to take her to the shelter without knowing what was going to happen to her. So she searched for her previous home and, in the meanwhile, got ready for the onset of puppies. Alas, no one claimed Mom, and the puppies came. About the time they were very mobile and noisy, the landlord came around and, well, they all came to us shortly after that. Are you looking for a sous-chef, office sidekick, or lounge buddy? Elderberry is ready and willing to fill all three positions simultaneously, and the only compensation she wants is belly rubs and snuggles. Her calendar is filling up quickly with naps, treats, ball play, walks, and food, so don’t hesitate to reach out! Elderberry is a sweet, gentle soul who is looking for someone patient and understanding to help her continue to find her confidence. She just wants to please. Already she has learned how to play with balls, stuffed toys, and even a squeaky toy. Playing brings out the puppy-like joy in her; she definitely has a goofy side. When you give Elderberry the time to introduce her to new things, she blossoms. She eats like no one's business. Yet also is very gentle and knows to sit and wait for her meals. She’s learning that counter-surfing isn’t necessary. She doesn’t need to worry anymore about getting enough food. Elderberry also needs an experienced, calm, and confident handler on leash. She has not had a lot of work on leash before coming into our rescue. She's strong and will pull, so having the right 'walking equipment' will be key. By the way, squirrels are highly interesting.  Right now, Elderberry is learning to love walks, though she prefers to go potty in the yard. She is house trained and crate trained but prefers to sleep on the dog bed. When hanging outside, Elderberry doesn’t dig. She likes to alert to people nearby, but stops after one bark and is easily redirected. Elderberry’s perfect home is one with structure, routine, patience, and love.  Elderberry recently joined a new foster and has had a blast playing with their dogs. We thought she was just a co-exister with other dogs, but she's more playful than she let on. So if your dog is looking for a playmate, well, shoot, look no further. This girl is ready and waiting... Elderberry is only an option for those who have had a dog as an adult. If there are kids, they need to be over the age of 12 and dog savvy. show less

He loves his toys; his foster momma even goes so far as to call them 'sacred' to him, and he self-entertains very well.  He loves family time and sitting at the dinner table with his people. He is a total velcro dog and follows his foster momma around the house. He enjoys belly rubs more than close up cuddling, but always wants to be near his humans. Once he trusts people, he is their best friend. He is very gentle with his toys and other people in the home.  Fremont is doing very well on house training but still needs some work on crate training. He pulls on a leash, but just because he is so excited to be out and about! He is a typical teething puppy but knows to only chew on his toys. He is not a nuisance barker but has been known to bark at a person passing the home.  He enjoys rising early, going for a brisk walk, playing and napping throughout the day, going for another walk and/or hike, and then cuddling before bed. He is very loving and caring and will be a wonderful addition to his forever home.  Fremont is only an option for homes that have had a dog of their own in the last 3 years.

He is an awesome 4 month old kitten that was rescued from a local hotel. He and his sister had been abandoned in one of the rooms and the hotel staff called us to see if we could take them in and find forever homes for them. Which we replied with a resounding yes! Since being placed in his foster home he has been thriving. His foster dad reports he is a perfect little kitten. Smart, curious and affectionate. His markings are just gorgeous along with his soulful eyes. Hyatt has been fostered with a couple adult cats, he has not been around small children or dogs, but given his overall temperament, we think he would do fine with any type of home dynamic. We think he could join a family of pets or be your one and only. He loves hanging on his cat tree gazing out the windows at the birds and his foster home says they take him for walks in a secure cat stroller which he seems to enjoy as well. All Hyatt wants is to give love and be loved in return. If you would like to give Hyatt a wonderful home, then apply to adopt him today!

We will also post at the end of the evening the names of those dogs who have been adopted: www.facebook.com/DPSRescueAdoption Fee: $450 Jakarta is an 8-10 month-old Boxer-Shepherd mix who weighs 38 lbs. He is one of 54 dogs we rescued from Mexico who were living on the streets. We have promised Jakarta he will never have to go back to the rough life he had. This sweet, gentle boy is looking for a calm, quiet, experienced adopter who has worked with very shy and timid dogs. We think with another confident dog in the home we'll see amazing things happen with Jakarta's personality. Jakarta will need love, time, and patience, and he deserves it. We know that with the right person, he will blossom into a wonderful, loving pet. Even though Jakarta is very shy, he is equally gentle. He absolutely loves chewing on toys, but if you offer him a treat, he takes it with such care. Jakarta was very scared when he first arrived in his foster home. He hid under the piano for the entire evening, but eventually, he let his fosters pick him up and carry him to his pen, where he spends every day now. He's made some progress, but he is still a very shy dog.  Jakarta has learned to use the pee pads inside of the crate, but he is still very scared of being outdoors, even in the backyard. He's much more comfortable being in a home environment, meaning that he knows now that he sleeps on a bed, eats from a bowl, and that his pen area is for him. However, he is still very uncomfortable and scared when a human is next to him. He has made some progress with humans, as he rolled over to let his fosters pet his stomach. It seems that with time he will grow to love pets! In his foster home, Jakarta wakes up in the morning, his fosters take away his bed from his pen, and he sits on the mat inside of his pen. They take him outside for about ten minutes after lunch, then he goes back into his pen and naps or chews on toys until dinner. They set his dinner outside of his pen so he will get more used to the area outside of his pen, but he doesn't eat until his fosters aren't looking at him. After dinner, he goes back into his pen and falls asleep. He doesn't use the bathroom when his fosters take him outside, but he has learned to use the pee pads they put inside of his pen. Jakarta's foster parents are working on teaching him leash manners within their home and yard. He's not ready to brave the big world, but this way he is getting introduced to the leash. He pulls a bit so they'll keep working with him. Jakarta is super well-behaved; he is not a nuisance chewer, barker, or digger. He’s a sweet, gentle dog who is looking for a dog savvy, quiet home who wants to love him and help build his confidence. Jakarta needs a home that has had a dog as an adult, has more than average dog savviness, but most importantly, understands working with shy dogs. This is a life-changing opportunity for someone, and it won't just be Jakarta's life that is forever changed. If there are children, they need to be over the age of 12. show less

This sweet girl is ready for a lifetime of love and growth in her forever home. She is the perfect mix of playful and couch potato. She loves running outside and playing with her toys, but also loves sleeping and knows how to make herself comfortable! She is house trained and waits to be let out, but is still working on her crate training. She is wonderful walking on a leash but pulls to catch up with her dog and human foster siblings when they are walking ahead of her. She likes to bury her toys and food, and while she isn't a nuisance barker, she is occasionally vocal when people or dogs pass by the room and when a stranger or new noise startles her.  She does well with her two furry foster siblings as long as they respect her space. She would likely do best as an only dog in her home but can coexist comfortably with other dogs. She loves her people as well! She is a super snuggly dog, always sleeping by her foster momma's side. She gets incredibly excited when she sees anyone in her family, wagging her tail furiously and crawling towards them with her back feet dragging behind her, almost as though she is doing the upward facing dog yoga pose! Koi is only an option for homes that have had a dog of their own in the last 5 years. If there are any kids in the home, they need to be over the age of 10 and dog savvy.  show less

We will also post at the end of the evening the names of those dogs who have been adopted: www.facebook.com/DPSRescueAdoption Fee: $600 The Lab Puppies are 10-week old Schipperke X Chihuahua mixes. They were rescued from the shelter. We were told they were Lab mixes; we laughed when we arrived and realized they were anything but Labs. But never one to criticize, we decided to call them the 'Lab Puppies' and name them after scientists. Isn't that fun? Their current foster said they are some of the best puppies he has ever had in his home. They are not overly noisy. They are sweet and loving, and they get along with his big dog and little dogs. They are even great with the kittens. We expect them to be in the 15-25 lbs range when full grown.  The Lab puppies' current schedule is: 6:30-7:00 am - wake and go outside to relieve themselves. 7:30 am - breakfast. Throughout the day - play in the backyard, cuddle with humans. Lunch at 12:30. Dinner, 5:30. These puppies are lovers and super energetic. They are all playful and tons of fun. Of all of them, the female is the calmest. They absolutely adore people. Big ole love balls, that is the best way to describe them! If their days could be spent just one way, it would be running around and playing, then getting lots of love and attention from people. Here’s a bit about each individual puppy: Albert Einstein: He is definitely the leader of the pack. He has the biggest personality of this trio. He’s got lots of love to give and wants nothing more than to receive attention. He would probably love an active home. Marie Curie: She is the calmest of the group, but as puppies tend to be, she’s still active and playful and loves to run around and enjoy life. Sir Isaac Newton: He is a very playful boy. He is calmer than Albert. He loves cuddles.   The Lab Puppies are only options for those who have had a dog of their own in the last 3 years. We believe that puppies need the most experience to grow up to be well balanced, well tempered, well behaved adult dogs. We do not consider petsitting, roommate's dogs or the family dog to meet the requirement of having a dog of one's own. If there are children in the home, they need to be over the age of 8. show less

We will also post at the end of the evening the names of those dogs who have been adopted: www.facebook.com/DPSRescueAdoption Fee: $600 Manila is a 5-month-old GSD X Labrador Retriever. She weighs 14 lbs. When Manila first arrived in her foster home, she was very scared and shy. However, after two or three days, she came out of her shell. She started to come up to her foster family and ask for attention and give them kisses. She also began to play with her foster family's resident dog. Manila is very energetic, but she has her cute, calm moments. Her foster mom called her 'one of the sweetest, most loving dogs' she has ever met. For example, one day a member of her foster family was feeling down, and she had the instinct to cheer her up with cuddles and kisses. She wants love, and she also cares deeply about her people. She can be shy and scared around new people and dogs, but now that she has more confidence, she warms up to strangers more quickly.  Manila usually wakes up around 7:30 a.m. and jumps up on the bed to wake up her foster family with kisses. Then she goes on a 5-minute walk to do her business, then breakfast is served right after. In the morning, she is very playful and energetic, but throughout the day she cycles through spurts of playing and napping. She goes on a long walk in the afternoon and after just wants to lie next to you and nap. She gets dinner around 7 p.m. or 8 p.m., then goes on her last short walk of the day. She usually goes to bed at the same time her foster family does, between 10 p.m. and midnight. Manila is working on her training. She loves taking walks with the resident dog. She does pretty well but likes to pull, so she is working on the command 'heel.' Her first few walks, she got very scared when she saw another dog but now thinks nothing of it. She has met with small dogs and has done very well. Manila does her business outside, but her foster family has to let her out about every hour. She will not alert you if she needs to go. Her foster family has also been working on crate training. She takes a little while to settle but will eventually calm down. She has not been known to chew, dig, or bark. Manila is only an option for homes that have had a dog of their own in the last five years. If there are any children in the home, they need to be over the age of 6.  show less
