Home/Available Dogs

Meet our dogs! New dogs arrive at Homeward Bound weekly. Before they are made available on the website, they are vetted, seen by our veterinarian, and assessed to determine the best match for them and our adopters. Get pre-approved and stay in touch. You never know when your companion will arrive!

Meet the Dogs!

SamGolden Mix, Age 12, Boy
I can tick a lot of boxes for being a fantastic dog. But there a couple items that make it more challenging for me to find the right home. Click on my photo to find out more about that and why I am considered a “Special Needs” dog. I’m a candidate to be a “Permanent Foster” dog for local adopters. That means that you are responsible for my food and general well being and giving me lots of love. Click the pic. I’m worth it.

Domino is a sweet and gentle girl who really enjoys the company of other dogs. She is shy at first, but is learning to trust that human companionship is also a wonderful thing. Domino will blossom into a fun and loyal companion in a loving home that is cat-free, and hopefully another dog who is looking for a true friend. Click on her photo to learn more about her!

Harry - ADOPTED!
Harry - ADOPTED!Mix, Age 8, Boy
I’m one of those gentle souls that makes for an outstanding companion in the home. I’m not as active as I probably was years ago but I still need to get my exercise in every day. I’m not ready to be a couch potato just yet! There some meds I have to take every day but here’s the really neat thing: HB has made me one of those Permanent Foster dogs (for adopters in the Sacramento area). That means HB will provide my meds so all you need to do is provide me with food and a loving home.

Sherman - SPECIAL NEEDSDoodle, Age 6, Blind, Boy
Sherman lost his sight but not his love of people and dogs! He was a bit under the weather for a bit, but he’s feeling good and ready to look for a home again. He still needs some help learning to navigate his new world – and he needs a person who will stay on top of his puppy-like ways to keep him safe. He’s not looking for sympathy…just a good mentor who happens to be a loving human, too. If you are a person who has the patience and time to help guide him in his new world, click on his picture to read his story.

Rocky - ADOPTED!
Rocky - ADOPTED!Lab Mix, Age 9, Boy
Hello out there, my name is Rocky. Homeward Bound found me in a shelter where I was the volunteers’ favorite. To toot my own horn, I am a gentle soul who loves people and enjoys the company of children, dogs and cats. I have a respiratory condition that does not permit me to be outdoors when it is hot, but I can go on very short walks when it is cool, which I love. I need a home with no stairs, and I promise to be your loving and loyal companion forever and always. I guess I have a way of wiggling into people’s hearts and staying there; someone called it the best trait ever! I am available as a Permanent Foster if you live within 30 miles of HB. Please click on my photo to learn more about that…and me!
