Sheri's Special Note:  If you are looking for a special breed of dog to adopt, please fill out an application and once approved we can keep our eyes wide open.  We really enjoy working in advance with people wanting to adopt a rescue dog to add to their family.  Our application is under "adoption application".

Fanny is an owner surrender.  She is about 4 years old and is ready for her forever home.  She's had Fanny for 2 years and she invited her daughter to move in with her two kids who are about 2 and 3.  Fanny was used to a quiet home and when they were around her she would just hide and bark at them.  So it's very important to us to find her a quiet home that she can enjoy.  She loves attention, is crate trained, potty trained and a very nice dog.

If you'd be interested in fostering please let us know.  Thanks!

We could save more lives if we had more available fosters.

Demali was originally a stray who was found in a field. Actually, she had to be caught in a dog trap in Stockton, CA. She was so scared and didn't want to just anyone. Deb who is a really good dog rescuer was able to set up a trap and catch her. Deb takes the word rescue to another level. She is so good at catching scared dogs. She immediately trusted Debbie and bonded with her.

Debbie has been fostering her while her 30 day stray hold took place. No owner was located and Debbie reached out to me to help find her a forever home and join the Poke-A-Dot's family. She had her vetting done on Friday and is healing nicely and will probably stay with Debbie until we line up her new family.

Demali is a little shy at first, but will warm up pretty fast. She's probable around 2 years old and weighs about 27 pounds. Maybe a Tibetan Terrier and Poodle Mix. She is so sweet and she melts in your arms!!! If you're interested in potentially adopting her, please fill out our application at or you may also call us at 209 603-5866. We're good communicators!

Here is her story....from the words of her foster mom.

My name is Demali. That means "beautiful vision" & my foster mom thought I was. She says I have beautiful blue eyes. I love to snuggle n loves lots of attention. I have a sensitive heart n get my feelings hurt easily so a kind voice is necessary. I walk pretty well on leash n I'm very inquisitive of any new things: cats, chickens, rodents.

My foster mom is working with me on my manners n not running out an open door. I am potty trained n never had an accident in the house.

I do not like to be locked up in a crate so I behave very well in the house. I love to snuggle and sleep in the bed. I even will sleep in with you when you want to sleep in.

I've been to groomers twice and did really well. They said I liked it. My foster mom n vet think I'm bout a 2-3 year old Tibetan Terrier. I was so badly matted the night I was rescued that they had to cut all my locks off but I'm still a beauty.

I do love the companionship of a fellow pup but I'll do ok if I'm an only child. Won't you consider me to become a part of your family?
