OAKHURST — Three female dogs are now available to be adopted — after giving birth to litters of puppies and then dumped and forgotten by their previous owners.
“Cassie is a Boxer mix, possibly mixed with Pit,” says Ellen Faux of Kellen Rescue. “She had been wandering around Oakhurst and parts of residential areas of Coarsegold near Oakhurst for weeks.
“There had been several sightings of Cassie and she had been posted on Facebook by various people. Finally someone contained her and she came to Kellen Rescue.
“Cassie had had puppies fairly recently it was assumed the puppies had been given away or sold and then Cassie was dumped.
“Efforts were made to locate an owner without success. Cassie is a friendly and active dog about 2 years old and weighs about 50 lbs.
“Rita is a Boxer mix likely mixed with Catahoula and possibly some Pit,” according to Ellen at Kellen. “She had been found at Reddinger Lake with a ball. The assumption was that someone threw a ball for her to chase and then drove off.
“Efforts were made to locate an owner without success before she came to Kellen Rescue. Rita had puppies fairly recently and, as with the others, it was assumed the puppies had been given away or sold and before she was dumped.
“Rita has a sweet and friendly personality, is about 2-years-old and weighs about 50 lbs.”
If you have room in your home and heart for these two beautiful dogs, please contact Kellen Rescue via email or phone (209) 742-4294 for an appointment.
“Dakota Queen is a bully breed or mix – perhaps Pit mix or Staffordshire mix,” Ellen continues.
“She was found in the yard of a vacant house in Coarsegold. The neighbor called Kellen Rescue about the dog after another neighbor heard a vehicle during the night.
“Dakota Queen had puppies fairly recently and it was assumed the puppies had been given away or sold and then Dakota Queen was dumped.
“Efforts were made to locate an owner without success. One person thought she looked like a dog that used to belong to a homeless person who had recently moved out of the area.
“Dakota Queen is a friendly, calm dog approximately 3-to-4 years old and weighing about 50 lbs.”
