New Home



Our little cutie pie Picabo now named Piper is off to her new home in Berkeley for now but hopefully moving back to Calaveras County soon.

She hit the jackpot with her new mom who understands having a shy dog and will know how to get Piper to expand her horizons.

Good luck Piper and be sure to stop by for a visit once you are back in the area.


Update: November 20, 2013

Our little shy girl Picabo(Peek-a-boo) is back in our program. Her owner loved her very much but he is now battling a very serious illness and he just cannot give her the love and attention that she needs.

Picabo is still on the shy side but not anywhere near as shy as she was when she was last in the program.

We are guessing she is now about 18 months old. She is housebroken and great with other dogs. She enjoys coming out and practicing her obedience and it shouldn't take long to get her all polished up.

Please give us a call if you would like to meet this little cutie pie

Well, that didn't take long at all. Little Picabo is off to her new home with a wonderful couple that understand shy and fearful dogs and they think they can make that difference in her life.

They have an older dog that Picabo can hang out with that will also help her build her confidence.

Picabo Arrives at Twin Cedar


Picabo comes to us from the Calaveras County Animal Shelter and she is a sponsored dog. Picabo is a GBD (Generic Black Dog) that stood very little chance of being adopted because she was afraid of everything in life.

Fortunately for her, I have some clients that like to save the dogs like her and offered to sponsor her. When Picabo came to Twin Cedar Ranch her name was Jade but that just didn't fit her. Every time we would enter her kennel she would run and hide from us and then peek around the corner at us. It was like she was playing a game of hide and seek so we thought Picabo was a much more appropriate name for her.





Once we can get Picabo on a leash she settles down
and actually seems to have fun coming out and
learning her obedience. She seems to be very smart
and willing if we take our time with her. She gets along great with other dogs and even has a roommate to
play with which has really helped her come out of her shell.


Picabo is between 10-12 months old and would do best in a home that does not have a lot of activity going on. It is unknown if her fear is because she was never socialized properly of if she was born this way.


Regardless, she will continue to improve if given the chance. Just in the two weeks she has made great strides in adjusting to life here at the ranch.

If you would like to give her that chance, please give us a call to come out and meet this little cutie pie.
