She may be a little withdrawn when meeting strangers, but will warm up quickly! Please watch her videos to learn more about this cute little fur ball! About Nira’s rescue: As puppies, Nira and her siblings went through a great deal of suffering. But thanks to the relentless efforts of the rescuers, they all survived, and two to them already lived with loving families now. It all began during the spring raining season, the rescuer received a message with pictures of four puppies; they fell into a ditch and two had multiple wounds on their bodies. Immediately the rescuers set out to look for them. Due to bad weather and flooding, it took several tries of the rescuers to finally got hold of the puppies. All puppies were treated in the hospital and cared for. In the meantime the weather turned worse, the pouring rain caused severe flooding in many areas. Nira was one of the lucky puppies that were saved just in time! The original plan was to do TNR (trap/neuter/release) on those puppies. Over the period staying in the hospital, they became much attached to people that made it harder to release them to the wild. The rescuer did not have the heart to let them go considering weather still being cold and raining. They were placed with foster homes with good care and training. Now Nira is doing well in her foster homes. Nira will be a great companion for any type of family if she’s given a second chance!

If you would like to give Yi-Lo a forever home, please contact abetterchancerescue@gmail.com OR call 650-580-3639 Tina About Yi-Lo: Yi-Lo is a handsome young boy. We’re not sure of his mixed breeds; our best guess is there’s some Lab. and Shepherd’s genes in him, because he is mellow, playful and loyal. Yi-Lo has gentle disposition, he is friendly to adult people, children and dogs, except for cats. He walks well on a leash, understands cues like sit, lie down and wait, he behaves well while being groomed. He is afraid of loud noises such as fireworks or thunder. Yi-Lo’s rescue story: As a stray, he lived on food set out by volunteers for a while, he caught the volunteer’s attention for always waited patiently on the side for his turn to eat, never fight over food with other dogs. However, he would defend the volunteer if other strays tried to attack. One day, he rounded up in the animal shelter unexpectedly. The volunteer worried that Yi-Lo’s days would be limited in the shelter if not being adopted soon. So the volunteer took him in herself as his foster mom in April 2015, even though it causes a great strain on her financial means. Under loving foster care, Yi-Lo was checked up and treated by the vet, whilst received good training and proper socialization. Yi-Lo is a healthy boy; he was neutered, with up to date vaccinations and microchip. He is patiently waiting for his future forever home. Please watch his videos to learn more about this happy and faithful young pup. He would be a great companion for any type of family that will open their hearts to him!
