|Greta was only with us for three days when she found her forever home.
Greta came to the Twin Cedar Second Chance Program from the Amador County Animal Control and Adoption Center on Oct. 2nd, 2008.
She had been turned over to the shelter as a stray. Greta is about 14 weeks old and is a pure bred German Shepherd Dog. She had "Parvo" when she was brought to the shelter but is now a very healthy little girl.
Sandy is a great dog that came to us from the Amador Co Animal Control and Adoption Center. She is about 10 months old and we think she is either a pure bred Catahoula Leopard Dog or she may have a little Border Collie in her as well.
This has to be the best match we have ever had. Sandy has found her forever home with a wonderful family to call her own.
Sandy just adores children and now she has two of her very own. She has a stay at home mom and a great buddy named Shadow.
|Shasta left for her forever home today, not even looking back to say goodbye. She will be living with a couple that I have known for over 22 years.
She will be living on 80 acres so she will have plenty of room to run and play.
Shasta arrived today from the Amador County Animal Control and Adoption Center. She is a 15 month old Lab/Australian Shepherd. Shasta is currant on all of her vaccines, spayed and on heartworm prevention.
|Tigger, now re-named "Sierra" has found her forever home. She has 11 acres to run and play on and a retired stay-at-home Dad to take care of her every want or need.
Tigger arrived today from Calaveras Humane Society (CHS). She looks like she could have some Boxer and Australian Cattle Dog or Kelpe in her. She is about 2 years old and in very good health.
|Reba has a wonderful new home! One of my clients from several years ago called to see what dog's that I had in my program. She came out and fell in love with little Reba. Kate wanted to change her name to "Mollie" and asked if that would be ok. Well it turns out Reba's original name was Mollie Mae and what gets even better is... Kate's middle name is...Mae!! This adoption is meant to be.
Reba came to us from the folks at Calaveras Humane Society (CHS). Reba is 14 months old and our guess is she is a Border Collie/Beagle cross with a lot of other breeds thrown in!!
Eli is a very, very lucky dog. He was adopted today by a wonderful couple who recently had to put down their white German Shepherd because of old age related problems.
Eli Whitney was the inventor of the cotton gin. The nice folks at Animal Control gave me that name because of my white coat, or I should say what coat I had left. You see, my story does not start out to well. When I was born I had a condition called Generalized Demodectic Mange which was left untreated by my owner.
Sammy has a wonderful new home in Lodi. She was a Fathers day gift from a loving family to their Father. I'm sure she will be spoiled absolutely rotten in her new home.
She a wonderful little girl that came to us from the Calaveras Humane Society. She was an owner surrender to the Calaveras animal shelter. Although she was in good weight when she was surrendered it was very obvious that she did not receive the best of care in her previous home. Her surrender papers said she is good with children, men and women..
Rico found his forever home with a very nice family with his very own 15 year old to call his own. He will be very much loved which is exactly what the doctor ordered.
Rico is approximately 1 1/2 to 2 years old and our guess is he is a Black Lab/German Shorthair cross. Rico is fast willing learner when it comes to his obedience training. He just loves to come out and go to work.
|Lulu Belle is our crazy Bloodhoundador Retriever. That would be a Bloodhound/Labrador Retriever
cross. Lulu was about 16 weeks old and came to us from the Amador County Animal Care and
Control. She is a real wild child with all kinds of energy to burn. Once she settles down
she is very sweet natured and loves to learn. In her first obedience lesson she learned
how to do a focused heel and introduction to an auto sit. Lulu has found here forever
home with one of the instructors from Jeff Schettler's TTT trailing school. Lulu truly
is a very lucky little pup!
|Emma came to us from the Calaveras Humane Society. She is a very sweet little American
Staffordshire Terrier that was about 8 month old. Emma gets along well with everyone
she meets. She is a bundle of energy and loves to play with all dogs, male and female.
Emma was adopted by a family of four and will be living in Amador county with three
other dog's to play with. Good luck Emma, promise to be a good little girl.
|Bella came to us from Calaveras Humane Society. She is approx. 7 to
8 years old and a very sweet little girl. Our guess is that
she is a Lab/German Shorthair Pointer. She got her wish for a
new home and is now very happy.
|Shiloh is a 2-3 year old sable
German Shepherd who came from the Calaveras Humane Society.
She was left abandoned along with her litter of puppies at a
rental house in Calaveras County. Her puppies all found homes
but poor Shiloh was left behind. The owner of the rental
contacted CHS and they took it from there. She has been
spayed, vaccinated and on heartworm prevention. Shiloh has
been adopted by a retired couple and will have acreage to run
and play on. Good luck Shiloh and promise to be a good little
girl for your new family.
| Jackie is one lucky little dog. He is a Border Collie/Golden Retriever mix and is about 3 years old. He now has the greatest family to call his own and because they live right here in Amador county he comes back for training and care when they go on vacation. What a lucky little dog.
|Jake is one year old German
Shepherd/Lab mix who came from the Amador County Care and
Control. He was pretty much a wild child when he arrived but
trained up nicely in a very short period of time. He was good
with all other dogs, didn't bother the cats and just loved
children. His wish came true when he was adopted by a family
from South Lake Tahoe and has his very own three year old boy
to play with. Good luck Jake, I hope you enjoy all of the
white fluffy stuff that falls from the sky.
is a very sweet, intelligent little Australian Kelpie who came
from the Amador County Care and Control. Because of her cattle
dog heritage, she was a little bit nippy when she arrived but
just loved to do a good days work. She loved her obedience and
agility training and was a great dog to socialize other dogs
with. Coco was adapted by a family of four and has a little
Jack Russell Terrier for a playmate. Coco comes back every
weekend for group classes and is doing just great.
|Tessi is a German Shepherd mix,
solid black in color. She came from the nice folks at
Calaveras Humane Society. Tessi was absolutely scared to death
when she arrived at Twin Cedar K-9. She was different than
most fearful dogs, she was more afraid l of women than men.
Because of this, Rich spent a lot of time with Tessi trying to
gain her confidence and provide the training and socialization
that she would need to find a new home. Tessi did find that
home and is now thriving. Good girl Tessi, we are so proud of
|Josey is a
German Shepherd/Husky that came from the Amador County Care
and Control. Josey was heartworm positive and not very
friendly to boot. Her lucky day came just a week after we had
pulled her into our program. A couple had seen her at the
shelter the week prior to Josey coming into the Second Chance
program and they wanted to adopt her. The nice folks at APAL
paid for her heartworm treatment and the new owners fostered
Josey during her treatment. She is now spayed and feeling
better than ever in her new home. Good luck Josey, come back
and see us sometime now that you are feeling better.
also came from the Amador County Care and Control. He is a
very handsome young Chocolate Lab that is full of energy.
Nooah and Cody could have been twin brothers if you took their
behavior into consideration. The nice folks at the shelter
gave him the name NOOAH because that is all they ever said to
him. Just like Cody, Nooah loved his training and found a new
home with a family to call his own.
came to us from the Amador County Care and Control. He is a
young and very rowdy Black Lab. He had absolutely no manners
when he arrived at Twin Cedar K-9. Mugging visitors as they
entered his kennel was his specialty. He would jump all over
you and play bite every chance he could. His enjoyed his
training and within two weeks he found his forever home. Good
luck with your new family and promise to be a good boy.
|Rowdy is a busy guy that just needed a job. Returned from a "no
kill" shelter because they said he growled over his ball, he
was doomed until he came to Second Chance. Like other dogs
returned from that shelter, he was not aggressive at all. Now
he is in training with a national search dog group where he
will finally have that job. And maybe someday he'll save the
life of one of those shelter people. Go get'em Rowdy! I'll
miss you... but next time stop for a minute to say goodbye!
|Little Duke is a special story. His days were
about over and he was facing a certain death at the shelter. A
soecial person saw the light in his eyes and gave him the
chance he needed. She sponsored him so he could be rescued and
trained until a home was found. That happened and now he is
happily living in a loving home with a little roommate of his
own. You are very lucky, Duke. Your angel was watching and
came and quickly found a great home. He had a few names before
getting Merle... most of the previous ones were not too
flattering. They came from his mischievous ways. But now he
has a home and owners that love him very much. Has grown
thrived in a loving environment. Be good Merle, you are very
lucky to have such a wonderful home!
had their doubts, but our pretty girl, Wishes, finally found her home. She now has her very own
family complete with another dog for a partner to play with.
She almost was put down by the shelter, but her lucky star was
shining and she come to the Second Chance program just in
time. And since she tried so hard in school she is now a loved
pet again. Goodbye Wishes... be good in your new home and
took a long time, but now we say goodbye to our longest
resident - Tucker. Lots of folks had their doubts about him.
He was very enthusiastic and that often was one of his
downfalls. At the shelter no one wanted to take him for a
walk, so he stayed longer in his kennel. Which made him even
more happy if someone came by, which made folks leave and so
on... But he tried very hard here in school and didn't let us
down. And now that he has a great home, we say a very fond
goodbye. And you better be good, Tucker!
Lilly is a happy girl on her way to a new life, and well
deserved. She was a wreck when she arrived. Over weight, very
dirty and her coat was in terrible shape. She was very down,
and having had at least three litters she was also again
pregnant when picked up by the shelter. All she wanted was to
just be left alone. But with care, good diet and exercise, and
training, a new dog soon emerged. She became a very happy and
mischievous little girl. So we say good bye to our Miss Lilly.
Good luck, Lilly! We'll miss your smile.
