Meet Almond

Meet Almond!

Almond is a sweet girl and came to us a a mama of three puppies. She was a really good mama. Almond is good with people and is good with other dogs with a slow introduction. Almond loves spending time with the family as her previous life was as an outdoor only dog. She absolutely loves car rides and enjoying the fresh air. Almond is housetrained and has also worked with a trainer.

Adult: 1-6 yrs $400.00

Each of our dogs are fully vaccinated to include Bordetella, DHLPP and Rabies. We deworm and microchip each dog as well as spay or neuter.

Our adoption process includes an initial conversation about the dog to see if the dog is a good match or if another dog could be a more suitable match. We also will complete a home visit. It should be noted that our adoption counselors know the dogs and can best guide any possible adopter with a suitable match.

We are always in need of experienced fosters for the amount of dogs we have coming in. Being a foster is such a rewarding experience. If you are interested please review https://www.calpaws.org/fostering

Almond has lived the majority of her life outside but she is adjusting to be an indoor dog Fabulously. She is potty trained, she will whine at the door if she needs to go out. She will also sleep in a crate. She does not throw tantrums if she's crated and doesn't want to be although she might whine a little so I think it's fair to say she's crate trained.
I have also left alone in part of the house while I'm gone and she hasn't destroyed anything. I've also left her alone in my car and she usually curls up to sleep.
She seems pretty good on a leash though she doesn't know how to heel she doesn't pull, she knows to sit but that's about it but she's catching on to more commands. The biggest thing we are working on is thresholds and waiting before going through them.
Almond likes to snuggle but is happy to sleep in her own bed.
She also loves to play and sort of plays fetch, she has to carry the toy around proudly before she brings it back and sometimes forgets to bring it back, if you're not in the mood she will settle pretty quickly especially if she has a chew toy to distract her. Her main joy is being pet, she is such a lover and smiles when she gets attention.
