♥People♥Other Dogs♥Good Manners♥Walks

This little cutie patootie is ready to rock your world. Mischa may be petite, but she’s got enough energy and personality to fill a room with her special brand of sunshine (and who could resist those adorable ears?!). She is indeed a sweet blue bundle of happiness, and she’s never met a person she doesn’t love. Mischa enjoys the company of other dogs too, especially polite ones. She’s a polite player who would love to have a friendly and mannerly male dog in her forever home.

Mischa walks nicely on leash, and her compactly athletic body is made for sporty fun. She’s going to be a wonderful activity partner for someone who likes to hike, jog, or go on any kind of outdoor adventures. And when the fun is done, she’ll be thrilled to snuggle up next to you for a snooze. Mischa, like all our dogs, needs to be a beloved indoor pet who is included in all the family activities. And with her warm personality, how could you do anything but?!

Mischa is in foster care, where she is being crate trained, house trained and currently living with other dogs and children.  Please fill out the application and email it to sacramentocountydogs@gmail.com if you’d like to meet her.

Retired Army Dogs Meant for Vets Given to Company that Tried to Sell Them to Foreign Countries

Handlers searched for dogs as Army gave them to company in violation of official policy.

Army Specialist Jake Carlberg and his dog Abby spent over a year sniffing out bombs in Afghanistan. They served with distinction, bonded, and saved lives.

“He would always say that she was his best friend,” said Glenna Carlberg, Jake’s wife. “They searched for bombs for his company. … They found seven.”

That was good enough to make them one of the top dog teams in their brigade, she said, but it was not enough to ensure they would be able to stay together after Abby was retired.

When they returned home, Jake tried for months to reunite with Abby. However, the Army, going against its own policy, had given Abby to a private contractor that tried to sell her to a foreign government before ultimately abandoning her in a Virginia kennel.

Abby is one of 13 dogs the Army gave to Soliden Technologies LLC, in contravention of procedures stating that the dogs’ former handlers should have the first opportunity to adopt them. Instead of being reunited with the veterans with whom they had served overseas, the dogs became pawns in a complicated and ultimately failed scheme to sell them for more work overseas. When the plan to sell the dogs fell through, their caretaker at the time says he was told to “dispose” of them.

Coming Home

The Tactical Explosive Detection Dog program (TEDD) to which Jake and Abby belonged sent hundreds of bomb-sniffing dogs to Iraq and Afghanistan as a countermeasure to the threat of improvised explosive devices. The program was similar to, but distinct from, the Military Working Dog program (MWD).

When the program ended in February 2014, the Army’s Office of the Provost Marshal General (OPMG) had to determine what to do with the remaining 229 dogs.

“Seventy were retained by the Army,” Army spokesman Troy A. Rolan Sr. told theWashington Free Beacon. “The remaining 159 were made available for adoption at no cost to the individual or agency adopting the dogs. Sixty-three were adopted by law enforcement agencies, 47 were adopted by private citizens, and unfortunately due to medical or aggression issues, nine were euthanized.”

Little Girl | Adoptable Dogs from Bradshaw Animal Shelter Sacramento

Age: 9 years

Likes:  ♡ belly rubs  ❤ humans ♥ pleasing her people ☺ cuddling ☼ kids

More About Me:

Oh my goodness! Little Girl is just so special.

This sweet doll is truly excellent on leash, knows basic commands, and very much wants to please. She is a dream dog. All you have to do is bring her home and love her–she doesn’t need any instructions about how to be a dream to live with! Little Girl adores belly rubs, is super gentle, and wants nothing more than to be at her person’s side. She far prefers people for companionship and wants to be an only pet in the household. Sadly, she was turned in to the shelter by her owner, who was unable to keep her because of the landlord’s rule forbidding pit bull dogs. What a shame that she was discriminated against, so please give Little Girl the second chance she truly deserves.

This is what Little Girl’s foster mom says about this darling girl:

“Little Girl is just a lovable, well mannered, snuggly, old-soul type of dog. She would be an easy fit for a first-time dog owner, and would be perfectly happy to live in an apartment. Although she’s not fond of other dogs and prefers a forever home without any pets, since being in my home she has learned to accept and trust my resident dog and even chooses to be friendly with her most of the time. While out and about she is completely able to mind her manners and just ignore other animals as long as they’re respectful of her space. Little Girl also loves hanging out with kids. And the feeling is mutual!”

Little Girl is in foster, so please complete an application and email it to sacramentocountydogs@gmail.com if you’d like to meet her.

Bill would outlaw tethering dogs, other pets

Citing unpredictable and sometimes extreme weather conditions throughout the year in Virginia, Del. John J. Bell, D-Chantilly, has filed a bill that would prohibit the outdoor tethering of companion animals.

Tethering would be allowed only if the owner of the animal is outside and within sight of the pet, the bill says.

Bell said his wife, Margaret, works to rescue and foster mistreated dogs, and that motivated him to introduce House Bill 1802.

“My wife does animal rescue,” Bell said. “She’s fostered over 50 dogs over the last seven or eight years.

“We’ve seen many instances where animals were tethered for long periods of time in either extreme hot and cold weather. They were unattended and no one was around.

“In fact, we fostered one this year that the authorities had to take, where it was part of a court case. The animal was almost at death’s door. I feel that tethering for extended periods of time, particularly in harsh weather conditions, is cruel to the animal and should not be done,” Bell said.

An owner who violates the measure could be found guilty of a Class 4 misdemeanor and subject to a fine of up to $250. A second offense would be a Class 3 misdemeanor, with a fine up to $500.

Stress makes dogs go grey as well as humans – new study

Stress takes its toll on canines too, the study suggests

Going grey due to stress and anxiety is an inseparable part of being human, but new research suggests we are not alone.

A pioneering study of dogs found has found that the famously loyal four-legged animals may be suffering exactly the same fate.

A survey of more than 400 canines established that going grey around the mouth and face was not only a sign of distinguished old age.

I’ve long had a suspicion that dogs with higher levels of anxiety and impulsiveness also show increased muzzle greynessCamille King, lead researcher

In just the same way humans with stressful jobs acquire the “salt and pepper” look at a younger age, dogs who had undergone a harder life were found to have acquired grey hairs earlier than those with a more care-free existence.

Scientists involved in the study, published in the journal Applied Animal Behaviour Science, said they had long suspected stress manifested itself in this way, but that finding evidence for the theory had been challenging.

The research involved visiting dog homes and veterinary clinics across the state of Colorado.

There is something about street dogs, about rescues; they have this knowing sense about them.
