This is Harley, he is the shelter stud muffin! This Pittie/American Bulldog is about 2 1/2 years old and already neutered. He is super friendly to all dogs and people, such a lover boy! He knows sit and stay already and because he is so treat motivated he will pick up on anything really quick. Harley walks right next to you on leash (which is fantastic because he is a big boy ha ha) Don't let his size fool you though, he is gentle as can be, just melts in your lap. This guy really is a big goof... I just love it! From his cute little under bite to the way he throws his paws in the air while he runs full speed at you then slams on the brakes, he is sure to win someones heart and hopefully a spot in their home.

Harley is currently at the San Diego animal shelter on Gaines st. His ID number is A10409517 and tag number is C531. If you or someone you know is interested in this wonderful dog please email me or leave a comment here.

So this silly girl is Raven.... and she is just that, SILLY as can be! When I took her out for a walk, every time we past someone in the hallways she just HAD to say hi, such a people lover. She is about a year old and so full of life, this girl is ready for an adventure! When we went to the play yard she jumped right in the kiddo pool... I really don't think she was familiar with it, it just looked so fun she HAD to do it! She knows sit and shake already and is so smart teaching her more will be a breeze. When I first saw Raven I thought her coloring and markings looked like a beagle, then when we went outside and her nose was basically glued to the ground, I was convinced she's pit/beagle... who knows though. I did not get a chance to see her with other dogs but I really don't think there would be a problem as she seems to LOVE everything.

Raven is currently at the San Diego shelter and looking for a forever home where she can shower you will love and joy. Her ID # is A1417114  and tag #335. Please contact me for more information.

Shy Girl we will call Hope

  This beautiful girl reminds me so much of Theo (Bowmans Canine's newest member) Someone hacked off her ears pretty bad and she is so scared of humans :( makes me so sad. You know, I am really drawn to the shy dogs... something about them... I think it's because it feels so good when you can gently get a creature to trust you, the way they should. I don't know this little girls story, but my heart aches for her, she has not felt love before. Today was my first time meeting this pup without a name... let's call her... Hope. I was planning on taking her out for a walk, but soon found out she is terrified of the leash. I slowly opened the kennel door and realized I did not have to worry about her door dashing as she was afraid to even come near me. I slowly knelt down sideways to show her I was not a threat, put my open hand on the ground in front of her to offer a treat which she snagged really quick and took a few steps back. I gently said "it's OK girl, your OK" then offered her another treat, as she reached for it I said "good girl, that's a good girl, good job" we repeated this process over and over until finally she took a treat from my hand that was placed in my lap then gave my hand a gentle kiss. I never got to the point of taking her for a walk but I did get her to trust me a little bit more than she did when I first came in to visit her. 

     Dogs in her condition are usually very hard to adopt out.... I REALLY worry about her well being. If you or someone you know has the time and patience for my little Hope, PLEASE contact me.... She deserves to experience love. I can not wait until Brett & I have some property and we can save sweet dogs like Hope.  As of right now she is listed as "county property" at the San Diego shelter which means she is not yet available for adoption, but if you think you can take her I will personally go talk to them and see what we can do.
