TUX – Pit Mix Male - Neutered

Birthday:  1 November 2010

A few words from the foster Dad!  “Tux is a pit bull mix but we have never had a friendlier, non-aggressive, people oriented dog transition into our pack of 16. No doubt that his first priority is you. We step out the back door and he's the first one to you to get some love. At six to eight months, he will need some work. We haven't had any trouble with him indoors so he's got the idea about doing his jobs outside although I don't leave him unsupervised in the house. Looks like he has all the social skills necessary to mix in with other dogs and he doesn't seem to be particularly jealous of others. “

Birthday:  27 April 2010

Camry and Cayenne are just 2 of 18 dogs that we rescued from a field.  They are feral dogs and have never had any human contact until we came along.  We fed them for over a year and still couldn't gain their trust.  We had to enlist help in trapping them, one at a time.  The puppies were adopted out and most of the adults ended up with good neighbors who are taking care of them and giving them a good life even though they may never be able to touch them.  These two ended up here at Las Lomas.  They are still very shy and afraid of people but have never been aggressive.  It is so much fun to watch them play together and finally see their tails wagging!  They love to talk to us while we clean and feed and they seem very content.  We continue to work with them as best we can but they are going to need someone with experience in handling fearful dogs.

BARON - Doberman - Neutered

Estimated Date of Birth:  1 January 2005

Baron is a great dog.  We actually witness his "dumping".  I was so mad I told my husband to follow Baron and the car who sped away when he saw us coming.  They pulled in to a driveway and denied dumping the dog but Baron was sitting outside his door with his paw up looking right in the window at this man!  They finally told us that Baron is a fence jumper and that he is mean and aggressive and bites people so they no longer wanted him.  However, none of that is true!  The fence jumping might be true, we have no way of knowing that because our kennels are all covered but Baron is not aggressive at all and has never tried to bite any of us since he has been at our shelter.  He is very loving and gentle and likes to be right next to you.

Baron has recently had surgery to remove 4 mass cell tumors.  Bless his heart, he is doing great!  He is such a happy dog and never knew he had cancer.  Fortunately, the pathology reports came back showing it is a low grade cancer!  We are so happy because the prognosis is much better than we thought!  

LITTLE MISS - Australian Cattle Dog - Spayed

JAKE - Yellow Lab Mix - Neutered

Estimated Date of Birth:  12 August 2008

Jake is a great dog!  He is friendly, playful, and very sweet.  He gets along well with other dogs and is great with children.  He was born at Tess' K9 Rescue and was adopted at a very early age but when we found out the adoptive family kept him outside all the time and lied to us about not having a fenced in yard for him we went to retrieve him.  It was a dangerous situation for him to be living in with no boundaries in the country where people sadly shoot animals all the time.  Jake is very affectionate and loves to be around people. 

RUSTY- Lab Mix - Neutered

Estimated Date of Birth:  Rusty:  11 February 2007

Rusty has now been neutered and is doing wonderful! He has become a joyful and playful dog. He likes to play catch although he hasn't quite mastered the art of returning with the toy. Rusty doesn't care too much about going in the house. He prefers to stay outside. 

Rusty gets along great with other dogs and with children but no cats for him!

KENNEDY – Shepherd Mix Male - Neutered

Estimated Date of Birth:  7 April 2008

Kennedy is a great little dog!  He gets along really well with other dogs, is very people oriented, and even comes when you whistle!  He is living indoors in a foster home and is house trained.  He is a calm and relaxed dog who will make a great friend for someone! He really isn't a dog who would be happy without other K9 companions though, so he needs a home with at least one other dog to keep him company.

BAILEY - American Staffordshire Terrier Mix - Neutered

Estimated Date of Birth: 18 November 2006

My family vowed to take me with them if they ever moved because I was part of the family, protected the kids from harm and played with them, but when it came time for them to move, they didn't keep their word and left me behind!! I have been in two different fosters homes now and it isn't the same. I am really sad and lonely and missing my family so much. I had two small children for my friends and I loved them a lot. I wonder if they will remember me when they grow up, and wonder what happened to me? I will never forget about them but it would help me to heal if I could find another family to love. The foster family I have been with for the last 6 months are doing their best, but I really need a home of my own.

I am very strong, but very sweet. I prefer to be the only pet in the home because I want all of the attention. I really miss sleeping with the kids at night and playing with them during the day. I am a high energy dog that will need daily exercise such as walks. I would be a great companion for a walker or a jogger. I would also be a good candidate for someone interested in agility training because I am very intelligent. I am also well behaved in the house.

I have been neutered, am current on all shots, heartworm negative and on heartworm preventative.

EMERALD - Border Collie Mix - Spayed

Date of Birth:  22 November 2007

Emerald is an adorable mixed breed girl with stunning eyes. She is a medium size, only weighs about 47 pounds. She was the runt of the litter. 

Emerald was adopted and returned because it  was discovered that she was born with a genetic defect.  She has no ball and sockets in her hips.  She went to our vet for an  evaluation.  She is in no pain and plays and runs like a normal dog.  She may, at some point in her life, require a surgery, but for now, it was recommended to wait.   Some dogs who are born with this condition live their entire lives pain free without surgery.  She isn't on any medication and is a happy go lucky dog.  

She lived indoors in her first home so she has had some house training. She loves to play and is a very sweet and gentle dog. 

JUNE – Terrier Mix - Spayed

Estimated Date of Birth:  24 December 2002

June is a wonderful little Terrier-mix dog.  She has a very sweet disposition. Although she is playful, she is also very well mannered and well behaved.  She is not a jumper or a barker and she would make a great little house companion!

June enjoys her doggy roommate at the shelter and they have fun barking at the horses when they get too rowdy, but other than that, she's mostly a calm, quiet girl.  We don't know how June would be with small kids or cats or if she was ever housetrained but she did get adopted once and was an inside dog.  We were told she did great in the house.  She was returned because the dog who was living there previously was not giving in to having a sister in the house.

June is a delightful little girl and just the right size to fit into any family.  She would probably do okay as an apartment dog too as she doesn't require much exercise.

CHE Z - Lab/Red Bone Coonhound - Spayed

Estimated Date of Birth:  27 January 2008

What kind of dog am I?  A loving, sweet, and gentle kind!  I was dumped off at a McDonalds on Loop 1604.  I was there for a month and one day a bunch of kids were throwing rocks and things at me.  That made me feel really sad.  But a nice man who was eating a cheeseburger witnessed it all and was able to save me before I got hurt.  The tech at the vet named me Che Z since my savior was eating a cheeseburger when he saw me!  He said he just couldn't resist that look in my eyes.  He took me to Las Lomas K9 Rescue who graciously made room for me and they are taking great care of me until I can find a home as kind and loving as me :)

SLICK – Hound Mix - Neutered

Estimated Date of Birth:  30 November 2007

Estimated Date of Birth:  22 May 2006

She was yet another "country dumpee" who shortly thereafter had 8 pups.  She was a great Mom and is a great dog with lots of love to give!

STANLEY - Lab Mix - Neutered

Estimated Date of Birth:  25 January 2007

I am Stanley and I was born at the vet clinic with my siblings after our Mom (Pumpkin) was dumped there before giving birth.  I have had a rough life, I am a parvo survivor though and very thankful to the shelter for saving my life!   Prior to coming to the shelter, I didn't have any contact with humans.  All I know is my caregiver, so I am a little shy when I first meet you.  If you are willing to work me with, and help me overcome my shyness, I could be a great friend to you.

BARNEY JOE – German Shepherd Mix - Neutered

Estimated Date of Birth:  10 October 2005

SPECIAL NEEDS.  Barney Joe came to the shelter as a puppy with his siblings, many of whom still reside at the shelter.  This litter was really sick when they came to the shelter and it took months to get them healthy and ready to go to their new homes.  By this time, they had not been socialized or exposed beyond their "sheltered" life.  While several of Barney's siblings are shy, but curious about meeting new people, Barney is exceptionally shy and unsure.

He loves and trusts his caretaker, but he has "special needs" in that he will require a special home with a patient adult(s) willing to work with him and slowly expose him to new things.  He is shy by nature and not used to all the activity and stimulus of the big, outside world he has never known.

Barney seeks comfort and looks after his brother, Mickey Boo. Barney is a sweet-faced boy whose father is a purebred German Shepherd.  He is good with other dogs and could probably learn to live with cats.

Barney will prefer a quieter type of household without a lot of traffic, and a small circle of friends.  He needs a home with someone experienced with dog behavior who understands, accepts, and honors his limitations.  A patient person with a soft tone and touch, who doesn't expect a lot out of him, but wants an easy companion to hang out with at home, will be the best match for bringing out all Barney can offer.

He would probably be easy to crate train and find comfort in a crate as being his safe place.

LITTLE ANGEL – German Shepherd/Yellow Lab Mix - Spayed

Estimated Date of Birth:  12 October 2005

ANGEL SMILES 4 U.  Angel is a very sweet, pretty golden/red coated girl.  She was a little shy not having been exposed to much outside of her shelter upbringing, but she has warmed up quickly and has a nice, easy-going, friendly temperament.

She really seems to love her sister and roommate, Hailey, and would enjoy a home with another doggy companion.  Angel is a darling girl just waiting for that kind-hearted person to come along and make her a part of a home and family.  She is very excited to get out and meet new people and can be hard to handle on a leash until she calms down but we believe this would all change in a home environment.

Angel is ready to learn about living life as a family, house-pet, and in return, you will have a sweet Angel to watch over you.

HAILEY – German Shepherd/Yellow Lab Mix - Spayed

Estimated Date of Birth:  12 October 2005

HAILEY has such a cute face with her expressive eyes and wrinkled brow.  She is really a beauty with her regal red, sleek coat too.  Her dad is a purebred German Shepherd.  Hailey enjoys spending time with her sister and roommate, Angel.  She's pretty calm natured, and they like laying close together and watching the birds fly by.

As comfortable as lounging around on the doghouse is, Hailey would really like to have a chance at becoming an integral family member in a real house and home.  She is a little timid not having been exposed to much outside of her shelter upbringing, but she warms up quickly and has a friendly temperament.  She would probably enjoy a home where she could have another doggy friend too.

TWINKIE - Plott Hound/Lab Mix - Spayed

Estimated Date of Birth:  22 May 2004

Hi!  I am Twinkie.  I was adopted as a puppy and returned a year later when I grew bigger than my owners anticipated.  Nobody really knows what breed I am but I am a beautiful brindle and have a soft, shiny coat.

I get along well with other dogs but still have a lot of puppy in me.  I love to lay on the floor and have my belly rubbed!  I love people but am very protective of my domain and will alert when strangers approach.

PUMPKIN – Doberman/Beagle Mix - Spayed

Estimated Date of Birth:  25 March 2006

Pumpkin is such a pretty girl with her deep, rich, tri-colored coat and beautiful round, expressive "Beagle" looking eyes.  We think Pumpkin is a Doberman mixed possibly with some type of hound.  Pumpkin is a quiet, mostly laid back kind of dog.

Pumpkin and her sister, Peanut, were turned into the vet's office to be euthanized when they were just youngsters because they had gotten pregnant when their owners did not spay them nor want them anymore.

No telling what their life was like back then, but it must not have been "all that," and Pumpkin doesn't like to talk about it!  Pumpkin is very shy and nervous about new things and people.

Pumpkin is very sweet and trusting with her caretaker, but she retreats to the safety of her dog house when visitors approach.  This pretty girl would like to have a loving, forever home with a family of her own, something she's never had.  But, she likes a small circle of friends and will need a quiet, low-traffic, adults-only home.  A special, patient, kind-hearted person(s) willing to go slow and provide encouragement to build her self-esteem, confidence, and trust will bring out the best in Pumpkin.

Pumpkin should be easy to crate-train and will likely find comfort in her crate as being her safe place.

PEANUT – Doberman/Beagle Mix - Spayed

Estimated Date of Birth:  25 March 2006

Peanut is a pretty black and tan Doberman mix who enjoys spending time with her sister, Pumpkin, and talking in her special way with her people friends.  Peanut is a quiet, mostly laid back kind of dog.

Peanut and her sister, Pumpkin, were turned into the vet's office to be euthanized when they were just youngsters because they had gotten pregnant when their owners did not spay them nor want them anymore.

No telling what their life was like back then, but it must not have been "all that," as they don't like to talk about it!  Peanut is very sweet and trusting with her caretaker, but quite shy about new things and people.

Peanut is a sweet dog who would like to have a real loving, forever home with a family of her own, something she's never had.  But, she likes a small circle of friends and will need a quiet, low-traffic, adults-only home.  A patient, kind-hearted person(s) willing to go slow and provide encouragement to build her self-esteem, confidence, and trust will bring out the best in Peanut.

SUNSHINE – Lab/Spaniel Mix - Spayed

Estimated Date of Birth:  27 June 2004

Sunshine is a really sweet dog and has lots of love to give.  She is a little shy when she first meets you but it doesn't take long for her to become friends.  She loves being around other dogs and has lots of fun playing and running around the yard.

She isn’t a very big dog but as you can tell she has a great appetite!  She is quiet, laid back, and pretty mellow.  She is actually a sister to Ebony but she doesn’t have her underbite!

Sunshine would make a great house companion for someone with a quieter life style!

KAITLAN – Lab Mix – Spayed

Estimated Date of Birth:  29 August 2005

Kaitlin is a very sweet dog who was thrown out with the trash on Loop 1604 near Floresville, Texas.  She was seen sitting in the same place for 3 days waiting on that horrible person who dumped her to come back for her.  She was a little nervous when we first picked her up but now she is very happy and thankful for food, water, and any attention we can give her.  She is a medium size dog with a huge heart!!

Kaitlan gets along well with the dogs at the shelter.  She is so gentle, and easy going without one mean bone in her entire body! She amazes me how loving and gentle she is with everyone!

TREVOR – Border Colllie/Lab – Neutered

Estimated Date of Birth:  9 August 2003

TREVOR is a lively, bubbly, eager boy looking for an active home. He is so handsome with his unique gray/blue coat.

Trevor has a very friendly, life-loving temperament and always greets you with a smile.  He enjoys sitting on people's laps.  Anything for a little attention!  He also enjoys other dogs.

Trevor is outgoing and probably up for most any adventure.  He is intelligent and waiting eagerly to show someone how quickly he can learn, but he hasn't had the opportunity yet, so he's hoping to find a home with people who will take him to obedience training and work with him on house training and manners.  Trevor would benefit from a harness because he does not like walking on a leash, at all!

TIGER – Shepherd/Lab Mix – Neutered

Estimated Date of Birth:  23 November 2005

TIGER is like Tony the Tiger used to say, "Greeeaat for the heart!"  He is a very smiley and wiggly fellow.  He is one compact muscle - he doesn't wag is tail, he wags his whole body!  You know what they say about those waggers.  They all have happy endings, and we are hopeful Tiger will too!

Tiger loves other dogs, children, and is an awesome people dog.  He loves to run and roughhouse with his dog friends, but he also has a softer side too.

He is a great size - not too small, not too big - just right, and he will make a great family companion whether at the lake or snoozing on the porch or sofa with this pals.

BONNY – German Shorthaired Pointer – Spayed

Estimated Date of Birth:  30 January 2004

Bonny is a beautiful German Short Hair Pointer mix, even though everyone says she looks like a Lab!  Bonny is a very active, energetic, lively dog who will require plenty of exercise.  She is also very friendly and gets along well with everyone.

Bonny has the agility and ability to be a rowdy girl, however, I can also see her curled up in front of a fireplace.  She is not housebroken to our knowledge, but has great potential of being an inside/outside dog as she is a quick study who is highly trainable and eager to learn.

Bonny's color makes her unique to look at and her bubbly personality makes her easy to love. She is great with kids of all ages, good w/ other dogs, and cats unknown.

ROWDY – Boxer Mix – Neutered

Estimated Date of Birth:  20 January 2006

Rowdy was surrendered to the shelter when his owner moved and could not take him.  He was an indoor/outdoor dog, good with other dogs, but had not been around cats.

Rowdy lives up to his name and has an active, party boy personality.  He's up for some good adventures, if you are!  Rowdy knows some basic commands such as "sit."  He loves playing in the water and being sprayed with the water hose.

Rowdy will require an active family who can meet his exercise needs and a secure fenced yard. 

SAWYER - Hound/Heeler Mix - Neutered

Estimated Date of Birth:  28 November 2004

Sawyer is a smart, very active dog who likes to play fetch, although he forgets the "return" part!  He's the type that will do best in an active home with someone who wants a jogging partner or to do agility, frisbee, or some type of doggy sport to keep this active guy's mind and body busy.

Sawyer is a very confident, outgoing dog who will do best with a strong leader willing to work on his obedience training and focus.

Sawyer gets along with the other dogs in his kennel but he can be a little food aggressive when sharing with others. 

MINNIE - German Shepherd/Catahoula Mix - Spayed

Estimated Date of Birth:  12 February 2005

Minnie was part of a litter that came to the shelter as pups.  She is a very pretty dog whose mother was a purebred German Shepherd Dog, and we believe the father was a Catahoula.

Minnie enjoys the companionship of other dogs, is a little shy, but friendly with people, and has a pleasant personality.  She would like to get out of the shelter environment and into a home with people who have time and interest in making her a valued family member.

She will need a fenced yard, house training, and basic obedience training as she has been housed in an outdoor shelter environment to date. 

MAX – Lab Mix – Neutered

Estimated Date of Birth:  1 June 2005

Max is a Lab mix boy who was found dumped in the country with his littermates when they were pups.  He's grown up in an outdoor shelter/kennel environment, but he has a nice, gentle personality and should be able to integrate into a family home if someone is willing to work with him and give him a chance.  He was born with a defect in his back legs that makes him bow legged, he got that from his Mom, but the vet says it doesn't cause him any pain and surgery isn't something they recommend.

ROCCO – Lab Mix – Neutered

Estimated Date of Birth:  30 September 2003

Rocco is ready to roll! He has the cutest facial expressions with his intent round eyes! Rocco loves to dunk his whole muzzle in his water bucket and would probably love a good swim!

Rocco was a backyard dog when he was left behind by his sorry people who moved and left him in his yard with 4 ft. weeds and no food or water. Despite this, Rocco is still a fun-loving, Lab boy!

Rocco is very friendly and gets along well with other dogs. He is easy going and submissive. Rocco still lives outdoors in the shelter environment but would SO love to have a true forever family to call his own!

He likes to talk to you when asking for attention. He would make a very loyal companion and watch dog. This is a nice and handsome boy who just needs someone to spend some time with him fine-tuning the skills he never had a chance to work on. He is shy and sometimes fearful of strangers so he needs someone willing to spend some time with him, once you gain his trust, he is very loving and loyal.

LILY - Pit Mix - Spayed

Estimated Date of Birth:  19 June 2004

Lily is a sweet little house dog who absolutely loves and adores people!  She is good with children too.  She loves to have her tummy rubbed, sleep on the bed with you, and curl up on the couch to watch TV.  She loves playing with other dogs; however, she tends to be a dominate alpha female and can sometimes play very rough so her time spent with other dogs would have to be very closely supervised.  She would do better in a home where she could have all the love and attention!

INDIGO - Doberman Mix - Neutered

Estimated Date of Birth:  25 January 2007

Indigo came to the shelter as a puppy with his littermates and mother.  He is a little timid meeting new people, yet very anxious, curious, and eager to join in the fun. He likes to talk to people in his special way to get attention and can be quite the character.

Indigo is an energetic, playful dog who would like a home with another doggy companion. He's grown up around other dogs, but since he has grown up in the shelter, he hasn't had the opportunity to explore all the things the big, outside world has to offer. Thus, he will require a home willing to work with him and show him the ropes of learning new things, home manners, training, and socializing.

Indigo loves attention and loves to shake hands!

COWGIRL - Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler - Spayed

Estimated Date of Birth:  11 November 2003

Hi there!  I am Cowgirl, a very sweet and loving dog who enjoys being around people and other dogs.  I am very gentle and easy going; however, I am quite the escape artist and really need to be an indoor dog with my time outside very closely supervised!  I need a high privacy fence for closely supervised activities outdoors and when I am not behind a high privacy fence I need to be kept on a leash.  I am also terrified of loud noises such as thunderstorms, fireworks, and gun shots.  I tend to bolt when I get scared and don't easily come back when called.  I am well worth the effort though because if you love me and keep me safe I will be a loyal and devoted friend for life!  I am crate trained.

STORMY – Black Lab Mix Female - Spayed

Estimated Date of Birth:  29 January 2002

I am Stormy. I am active and playful, yet a gentle dog. I have lived indoors before but am currently living in the shelter.  I enjoy playing with other dogs and miss my family and the indoor life of watching TV and hanging out with my friends.

I have had some basic obedience training and really enjoyed going to the classes. I wouldn’t be hard to housetrain since I have lived indoors before. I am an intelligent girl and a fast learner.

I'm a cute, little bit short and stout girl, so I'm more of a medium size for my breed.  Do you have a place in your heart and home for me, so I can live the family life I was accustomed to? 

BILLY - Hound Mix Male - Neutered

Estimated Date of Birth:  29 March 2004

Billy is a Hound mix with an adorable bobtail and freckled legs.  He is smart, attentive, energetic, athletic, agile, treat motivated, and eager to learn! He had no problem "bobbing for a treat" during his "photo shoot." Check out his video!   Click here!

Billy seems like he would be an excellent candidate for agility or another doggy sport. He would also be a good jogging partner.

We think Billy was an outdoor, free roaming dog previously, so he will need some fine tuning in the home manners department. Billy is a sweet and eager boy who is anxious to show you how much he can learn! He is probably too exuberant at this time for young children and cats. He gets along with the other dogs in his foster home.

LITTLE MAX – Black Mouth Curr Male

Estimated Birthday:  1 January 2015

Little Max was rescued when his Dad passed away.  He was a sick puppy and was successfully treated for parvo.  Today he is happy, healthy, and ready for a new home

STRIKER - Rat Terrier Mix - Neutered

Estimated Date of Birth:  6 September 2006

Striker was one of 14 dogs living in an old trailer house that had been vacated when the owner was taken away by social services.  He was never aloud outside and was never socialized.  He isn't an aggressive dog, but he is a little scared of strangers, although very curious and wanting attention.  Given a little time and TLC he comes around and will sit on your lap!  He was given the name striker because he was bit by a rattlesnake just days before we were able to catch him.  Striker only weighs 10 pounds and is full grown.  He has really come a long way since he has been at the shelter.  He is full of love and really wants to be held!

RICO & JINGLES – Leopard Catahoulas - Neutered

Estimated Date of Birth:  1 January 2009

These two brothers were rescued from the Pleasanton pound.  They were scheduled to be euthanized the day the owner of our sister shelter stopped in to see what was there.  She convinced them to wait a couple of days until she could find space for them but she didn’t have long because the pound fills up fast and they were killing animals twice a week over there.  These two boys are very lucky to have made it out of there alive.  They are both really sweet and friendly.  They are a little shy and unsure around strangers, but given time they warm up to be really nice and affectionate dogs.  They weighed approximately 20 pounds when they first came here in April 2009.  Today, Rico weighs 65 pounds and Jingles weighs 75 pounds.

BRIANA – German Shepherd Mix - Spayed

Estimated Date of Birth:  10 October 2005

SPECIAL NEEDS.  Briana came to the shelter as a puppy with her siblings, many of whom still reside at the shelter.  This litter was really sick when they came to the shelter and it took months to get them healthy and ready to go to their new homes.  By this time, they had not been socialized or exposed beyond their "sheltered" life.  While several of Briana’s siblings are shy, but curious about meeting new people, Briana is exceptionally shy and unsure.

She loves and trusts her caretaker, but she has "special needs" that she will require a special home with a patient adult(s) willing to work with her and slowly expose her to new things.  She is shy by nature and not used to all the activity and stimulus of the big, outside world she has never known.

Briana relies on and seeks comfort in her sister and roommate, Krystal.  Briana is a beautiful girl whose father is a purebred German Shepherd.  She is good with other dogs but has never been around cats or children.

Briana will prefer a quieter type of household without a lot of traffic, and a small circle of friends.  She needs a home with someone experienced with dog behavior who understands, accepts, and honors her limitations.  A patient person with a soft tone and touch, who doesn't expect a lot out of her, but wants an easy companion to hang out with at home, will be the best match for bringing out all Briana can offer.  She would probably be easy to crate train and find comfort in a crate as being her safe place.

KASIE – Shepherd Mix Female – Spayed

Estimated Birthday:  5 September 2014

Kasie was picked up at the Senior Center on Military Drive.  She had been there for 3 days and nobody claimed her.  She is crate trained and leash trained.  She stays in a kennel inside the house when nobody is home and doesn’t mind it at all.  She is intelligent and gets along with other dogs.
