Pets of the week, Oct. 27, 2020

We’ve gone to the dogs with our featured pets of the week: Cali and Joy.


Cali is a chunky monkey of a Pit Bull Terrier with a wiggle-butt that makes us think she may be mixed with Boxer. This 2-year-old pup has a soft white coat marked with russet splotches, and she sports pointy expressive ears and a giant smile. 

Cali came to us as a stray, so we don’t know much about her previous life. What we do know about her, we adore! She’s charming and affectionate and relishes playing with other dogs and romping around the yard. After enjoying dog-time, Cali makes the rounds going from person to person, getting belly rubs in exchange for doggy kisses.

Come get to know Cali and bring any potential dog friends for a meet and greet, we think you’ll find her love-a-bull. She can be adopted now and picked up after her spay surgery next week.

Joy is a sprite little Shepherd mix with a seemingly shy and submissive personality. She came to us as a stray, and we are estimating that she’s about 3-years-old. Don’t be fooled by how timid she appears when you walk by her kennel; once out in the yard, she needs mere minutes to warm up and become the star of playgroups.


Joy likes other dogs, but she loves people. She’s content to lean on her human and get a good scratch beyond the ears, but she really gets her kicks by rolling on her back for a tummy rub. Joy requests that she meet any potential furry friends to make sure they like playing together. Joy will make a devoted addition to any family. She can be adopted now and picked up after her spay surgery next week.

The 7th Annual Pints for Pets is around the corner! It’s DBCHS’s biggest fundraiser of the year, and we hope you will join us — virtually — the week of Nov. 16.
