SPECIAL HOMES NEEDED
F. Older dog, about 10. Yellow. Not purebred, but close. This is a
wonderful girl! She was found at Lake Merritt. She has obviously been
someone's beloved pet and has more good years left in her. She is very
friendly and very beautiful.

LAB MIX (yellow)
This dog could really use some help. He came into the shelter all torn up
from an encounter with some pitbulls, but he is recovering nicely. In
spite of his discomfort, he is very friendly and alert.
M. About 3. I think he may be part Sharpei. Whatever he is, he is very
sweet, about 50 lbs., smooth yellow coat and very "labby" in appearance
except for his wrinkled forehead and jowly muzzle. That's where I see

LAB MIX (2/black)
8 weeks. "Lab mix" is a guess here. That is what the puppies look like.

HEINZ 57 (listed as "shepX")
F. 12 weeks. This is a funny little dog. She is a very pretty
tri-color. From her markings she looks like she might be part Aussie.

already about 40 lbs.
He is very friendly and affectionate.
