One of our sweet mutts

Paddy Cakes 2201

Shihtzu | Male | Size: small (6-20 lbs)

Paddy Cakes 2201

Paddy Cakes came to Muttville on the heavy side but he is now a svelte 13 pounds. Our Paddy was found tied to a tree in San Francisco’s McLaren Park, matted, scared out of his wits. Luckily someone found him and Muttville said yes to taking him in. After being shaved, he said, “Thanks, that feels so much better!”

Paddy Cakes gets along with other dogs and he’s really charming! He has blossomed at Muttville, snuggling up and following us around.

We think he is 8 years old, he weighs 13 pounds and should continue getting his exercise! Meet our little Paddy Cakes!! He’ll make you smile!

Check out Paddy Cakes walking off the pounds at Fort Funston

Muttville teams up with Compassion Without Borders for a "seniorita" named Wanda

Muttville teams up with Compassion Without Borders for a "seniorita" named Wanda

Up until August, Wanda the Pug lived every day of her life on the end of a chain in Puerto Penasco, Mexico. She was brought to a free veterinary wellness clinic sponsored by Compassion Without Borders based in Santa Rosa, CA. A woman handed Wanda over to Compassion Without Borders’ Founder Dr. Christi Camblor – and the woman was glad to do so, knowing Wanda could receive the care she needed.

Wanda was covered in mange and had painful scabs, skin and ear infections. Her eyes were infected, too. Thankfully, this harsh life in the Sonoran desert ended when Compassion Without Borders rescued her, got her the medical care she needed and helped her to recover in Northern California. When she was first rescued, Wanda would wander aimlessly and hardly engage or interact with people. Today she wags her tail, loves to go for walks, has a spring in her step and seeks out affection and attention like a normal happy, snorty, sweet little Pug.

She recently went to a loving Muttville foster care home in San Francisco, blossoming and enjoying her newly found freedom to roam around as she pleases. As her scabby, hairless coat has sprouted new fur, her sweet spirit has emerged and she is learning that life is indeed worth living.

Compassion Without Borders and Muttville Senior Dog Rescue hope to find the perfect home for Wanda.

Dr. Christi Camblor said, “Wanda’s transformation is nothing short of miraculous. She went from a listless, despondent, scab covered dog living on the end of a chain, to a robust, happy, confident and engaged soul who charms everyone she meets. I am so grateful to Muttville for helping during this final stage of her journey to the happy ending she so deserves.”

Muttville’s Executive Director Sherri Franklin said. “It’s no wonder that Wanda has so many people to help her, Muttville is lucky to have her. She is such a cuddle muffin and we know she will make someone very very happy.”

Compassion Without Borders provides a brighter future for animals in need. Their programs include; International and local dog rescue programs in the U.S, humane education and outreach, free veterinary wellness clinics in the U.S. and Mexico, humane euthanasia programs in Mexico, veterinary training in Mexico.
