It was an exciting week keeping up with you Fred. And now your search is over and you can rest your paws. Our Airedale-Irish wolfhound mix has captured the heart and soul of a new forever pack, and is often seen around town enjoying his new leash.


Sydney, the senior Aussie mix is the first of our Anza gang to be adopted. He captured the hearts of his new humans, and that of Chloe the ARF Chiweenie, who welcomed him into her pack. All paws up to you Sydney in your new adventure.

Whisper, the long-haired Chihuahua from Anza is in a trial home. Our paws are crossed for you Whisper.

Charlie Brown

And Lucky found his best friend, who was right there all the time. Michele is also on a new adventure for a lifetime of love.

Consistent training, with scheduled playtime and lots of exercise are making Riley a good girl. She is in a trial home too.

Amy is back! A young Chihuahua, she can be visited at ARF along with the rest of the pack from Anza. Amy loves to go for her walks, have lap time, and is always ready for the treats. And she comes with her own wardrobe of sweaters for the winter.


Everyone has room for a teacup or two. Chihuahuas that is. Charlie Brown and Chip are part of the Anza gang. They are both good with other four-leggeds, even the feline crowd. Charlie will be in your purse in no time, while Chip tends to just skip around.

Monty, a 5-year-old pure white male, and Mena, a senior Burmese mix, will always welcome you to the ARF cattery.

Coming soon to ARF … kittens! And they won’t last too long, so be sure to reserve yours now.
