We have made the difficult decision to to put a hold on all adoptions from Crest Care.  We have to consider the safety of our volunteers and adopters.  We are not able to do home visits due to social distancing and that is an integral part of our screening process.  Please check back after 4/1/2021 for updates.

Puddin 1   Puddin 2   Puddin 3   Puddin 4

Puddin is a 2 year male Chi-Chi (chinese crested-chihuahua mix).
We picked him up Sat 2/6 and brought him home to his 2 foster sisters who have been a big help comforting him & showing him the ropes. 
He is very timid and doesn't know what toys are yet but likes to watch his foster-sisters play! 
He doesn't like to be alone. He is super sweet, gentle & very affectionate. 
He hates loud noises and sudden movements. One interesting thing about Puddin is we have yet to hear him bark! (yawning & growling at a big dogs occasionally walk down the street is all we've heard yet)
We are working on getting him used to wearing a collar/leash, clothes & learning to go to the bathroom outside regularly. He is doing great with crate training. 
If he's not on my lap, he's curled up with Charley on one of the dog couches. 
He has not been around children that we know of and does not get along with large dogs. We still have a lot to learn about Puddin because he's only been with us a few days.
He is rescued from a backyard breeder and has spent most of his life in a small pen shared with about 8 other male dogs.
He wobbles a bit when he walks, but gets around just fine. He doesn't do stairs but can easily hop on/off the couch. 
He also urinates on his front legs everytime he goes to the bathroom so needs to be rinsed off each time. Because of marking, he wears a belly band indoors. 
His teeth are in poor condition so he is having a difficult time eating. We currently have him on a soft food diet.
He is scheduled for a dental during his neuter next month. 
Puddin is on the road to a happy, healthy life & it won't be long before he's ready for adoption! 

Meet Sebastian!
Sebastian 1  Sebastian 2

Sebastian is a sweet boy being fostered in Central California.  He is very spunky at about 10 years old.  He loves to play with toys and be cuddled.  He enjoys playing with other dogs.  He also enjoys chasing chickens. Good thing they have their own yard. Taking a walk or a ride in the car is a treat to be treasured.  He has a good appetite.  He is missing a few teeth, but that doesn’t stop him from eating anything.  Sebastian loves to cuddle in the bed or on the couch. He really wants your attention and will let you know if he thinks he is being neglected.  He has mastered the art of spinning and will spin for dinner or treats or to be given attention. 

We cannot really speculate where Sebastian has been in his life, but for all his sweetness he has a few fear issues.  He is working on overcoming these and we have seen marked progress since he has been here. Sebastian does not mark, but he does have accidents.  When he has to go, he has to go. He does not give a lot of warning.  He goes out every two hours or so and so mostly avoids having accidents in the house, but he wears a belly band to be safe.  After an accident, he is quite fearful.  He will cower and be afraid to pass his human on the way in or out of the door.  With praise and encouragement there is hope of this fearfulness fading away.  Sebastian also is a little fearful of men.  He will cower, yelp and bite at (but not actually make significant contact) a man who he fears.  The foster dad in the house is working with him to help him over this issue.  Hopefully in time, this will also fade.   

Sebastian does have vision trouble.  He cannot tell if a sliding door is open or closed.  After he crashed into it, we put stickers all over ours to make sure he could see it.  He is still leery of the door, but he absolutely loves to run full boar, bounding over the steps and into the house.  As an older dog, he has a few lipomas and moles that will need watching, but currently they are not an issue.

In short, Sebastian is an adorable crested boy looking for a home with love, patience, maybe a doggie door, and someone who is willing to give him the time and space he needs to become confident that his people will not hurt him.  He will return your love with all of his doggy affection.
