Alice is a sweet girl who is looking to start the next chapter of her life. Calm and loving, she just wants to hang out with her people and maybe take some walks around the neighborhood. Although she's not particularly interested in other dogs, she has lived with other dogs in the past and could probably do so again with the right match. Alice will make a great family dog and should fit in well in most households. ADOPTED

Daisy is a little spark plug who just needs lots of love. Her default position is firmly in your lap. She will do best as an only dog in the household because she wants your lap all to herself. Daisy should make a great dog for kids, particularly little girls who will shower her with attention, which she will adore. Daisy is a very sweet, loving dog who will be sure a put a smile on your face. ADOPTED

This fabulous, two-year-old tabby is named RuPaw! He likes to speak his mind and will make a cute cooing sound when he’s happy! Just offer some pets and chins scratches and he’ll be ready to snuggle up next to you with a lot of love. While living his best self, he can get overexcited at times so he needs a home with adults and possibly older children. “Sashay” over to the catwalk and strut your stuff for RuPaw today!

Meet Charlie! He’s a clever, energetic, and enthusiastic dude who is eager to show off all his talents to folks he meets, but of course, a treat wouldn’t hurt! He already knows “sit”, “down”, and where to “do his business” appropriately and would love to learn more. Charlie would make an excellent companion to a loving new home… so come meet Mr. Special today!

Hi, I'm Zorro! I am one handsome boy that will charm you with my infectious grin! I may be a big boy, but that doesn't keep me from diving in for cuddles on the couch! I can be overwhelmed by certain dogs, so I may do best as the only dog in the home. Otherwise I am a gentle giant that would do well in just about any home!

Hi, I'm Nilla! I'm a treat fit for anytime, any day! One taste of my soft, sweet snuggles and you'll be hooked. Promise to give me a lifetime of love and plenty of treats? Then I'm your girl! Come down to Berkeley Humane and meet me!
