HUGE shout out to all the wonderful FDR supporters out there who have been so generous in purchasing items from our Amazon and Chewy wish lists.
The last few weeks we have had boxes upon boxes delivered with amazing goodies.
Our dogs and pups will enjoy the
food, toys, new beds, crates and more.
⚠️ Heatstroke in pets can be deadly ⚠️
🥵 The temperatures are getting to be in the triple digits this week, which can cause dangers for your pup.
Heatstroke, burnt paws and dehydration can all occur quickly and be very dangerous. To keep your dogs safe: limit outside time, consider short or minimal walks, ensure they have access to water at all times, and consider indoor training to tire their mind.
With temperatures this high, your dog should never be left in the car. Make good choices to keep your dog safe in the heat!

Meet Trader Joe
Age: 2 Years
Sex Neutered Male
Size: Roughly 15 pounds
Other Dogs: Does extremely well with other dogs, and will need a resident dog in his forever home
House Trained: Working on it, but REALLY CLOSE
Meet Trader Joe! He is very friendly with 2 adults in our home, but prefers me (female) over my husband. He is always very skittish (even with us) extremely hard to catch both in the house and the backyard and thus he often has a short leash dragging from his collar to assist us. He is inclined to dash out of the front door - so be very careful when coming in to your home. He is friendly and affectionate with us and will cuddle on his own terms (join me in a chair and always on our bed). At night, he has been crated in a room with our other dog, but has slept a few nights on our bed next to our other small dog. He does sleep calmly through the night. We would say that he is 99% house trained and will generally signal to go out, although we consistently let him out (monitored due to escapism nature) many times during the day and before bed. He seems to enjoy a variety of dog toys, and is a bit of a chewer (keep your shoes high). He is learning to walk on a leash and does more zigging and zagging than anything else. He will bark at people and dogs that walk by, but this seems to be more out of fear and protecting us than aggression. We have not observed him with kids or cats.
We believe that there are some must haves for this dog to be successfully adopted. He needs at least one other small, playful mentor dog (at least 15 pounds), an extremely secure backyard (he is an attempted escape artist), someone who is home fairly often and owner(s) with patience to work with him. If you feel you could give this adorable, sweet guy with some special requirements, please submit an adoption application on our website.
We are complying with all recommendations set forth by our governor. At this time our office is not open to the public and we will not be having public adoption events. We will continue to have private meet and greets ONLY.
If you are interested in any of the dogs we have available, please submit an adoption application online at www.foothilldogrescue.org.
We will be going over the applications for best fit for the dog, it is not first come first serve. If your application is chosen, we will set up a private meet and greet with you. Please DO NOT contact the office for available dogs or private "meet and greets."
Seven wagging tails and seven happily families made up our awesome adoptions this week - including another foster fail (our favorite type of fail 😝).

Foothill Dog Rescue recently took in quite a few pregnant and nursing mommas and puppies, litters of pups without moms and Singleton pups and thanks to our amazing fosters they’re in loving, caring homes. We still need your help with donations. As we take care of all of our foster pups needs from food to toys to puppy pads and more, please consider donating from one of our wish lists. We now have an Amazon and Chewy wish list to choose from.
Our most needed items are below. Thank you for your incredible support. We can’t do what we do without our generous donors, volunteers, fosters, and adopters.

🐾💖IT’S A PUPPY PARTY✨🐕
Allow us to introduce you to:
🌟Sheldon - He was born into our program and now he is a 9 week old, smaller breed, long bodied boy. His mama is 12 lbs - we think that he may be bigger than her.
💓 Zappa and Ziggy - 9 week old brothers. We don’t really know what these guys are, your guess is as good is ours. We’re thinking schmedium and Zappa will be bigger than Ziggy (just a guess).
🌻 Abigale, Alvin and Ashbury - these cuties came in shy and underweight but with lots of love and care from their foster, they are now wiggle worms and having a great time. We think these kiddos will be on the smaller, lankier side.
