Welcome once again to the once-a-month animal adoption segment, "First of the Mutt." Ronnie's Awesome List is proud to partner with various rescue organizations around the Bay Area to feature adorable, adoptable, family-friendly animals find their forever home and help your family find a new best friend and fall madly in love.

This elegant, lovely lady is Coco. At almost 10 years young, the way to win Coco's heart is with balls and soft, squeaky toys! This zen girl also knows how to simply lay by your side and relax. Coco is calm around other dogs and walks really well on leash. Her only caveat is "no cats" - they are too much fun to chase. Coco is looking for a family that loves fetch and tug, relaxing walks, and hanging out together.

Prince is quite the handsome, charming guy. He's sweet, playful, curious, and confident. He enjoys being groomed to keep his shiny black coat looking its best. Prince would like to go home with a nice family who will keep him entertained with lots of toys, a window that looks out on the world, and plenty of lap time. This handsome fella has been adopted!

My name is Camilla! I'm 70 pounds but I don't know it - I want to be your lap dog! 'Gentle giant' is how people often describe me. I love everyone I meet, and I enjoy playing with other big, goofy dogs as much as possible. A quieter home and neighborhood would be ideal for me. Come say hello and let's see if we're a match!"

I'm Lucy! I've been told I'm a down-to-earth calico. I like calm energy - quiet, relaxed spaces are where I'm most happy and that's what I'm searching for in a new home. My ideal day would include playing, an afternoon cat nap in the sunshine, followed by some quality snuggles in the evening. All cats 5+ months old, like me, are free to adopt through January 1!" 

Hi, I'm Bella! I am one beauty that is still looking for her prince(ss) charming! I am a happy-go lucky girl , that is never shy to dish out kisses! I am a mellower gal, so a calm home would have me seeing hearts! I am always up for meeting new friends, come by and take me for a stroll! 

Hi, I'm Baron Bubbles! Can you say Dom Perigon? Krug? Veuve Cliquot? Those lovely champangnes just roll off my tongue, too, cause I am a fun-loving boy who enjoys interacting with my human companion(s)! Come by soon to see me at Berkeley Humane and let's say "Cheers" together!
