Trudy is a sweet mid-sized dog who is a definite “LeMutte” original creation! The vet called her a golden retriever mix, but she looks more like a hound/shepherd mix overall; she came in as a starving stray, all her ribs and her hipbones are prominent (but we’ll fatten her up in no time). She seems very grateful for the soft place to sleep and the regular meals.
We are estimating Trudy’s birth date as 2/8/09, making her about 2 1/2 years old – though her teeth are very white, so she may be a little younger. Trudy has an odd little “hitch” in her gait – when she gets moving fairly quickly, her rear legs sort of swing to the right side, and when she runs, she sort of “hops” with her hind legs while running normally with her . . . → Read More: New adoptable dog: TRUDY
DuQuella is named for one of our adopters/facebook friends; we chose this name because it rhymes with our other juvenile black dog, Ella – too cute! (We’ll occasionally be stealing facebook friends’ names for our pets; ideas are hard to find, ha).
DuQuella looks like a LeMutte dog, we can only guess that she may have some black Labrador and some sort of shepherd in her mix; she’s much smaller than a full Lab, approximate weight right now is 35-40 pounds, and we are guessing she was born around 12/1/10, so she’s just over 6 months old right now. She has some brown fur on the backs of her legs and her feet.

Our kittens have completed their ringworm treatment, so they don’t have ringworm anymore.
Two new cats, female Cybele and male Eros, were listed.
Cats Wasabe and Alameda were adopted, as were dogs Sissy, Freckles, Kaa, Nagaina, and Bagheera. They can now be seen on our Adopted page.
Nothing happened in the week of 11/14. Oh, well.
Two new dogs were listed: Sissy and Freckles, both ~50-pound females. Sissy is an adorable ~1-year-old border collie mix, and Freckles is a cute ~2-year-old Walker Hound.
In addition, six new leMutte puppies were listed: three males and three females. The males are Baloo, ShereKhan, and Mowgli. The females are Kaa, Nagaina, and Bagheera. They were all born on September 24.
For the (almost) latest updates, check out our Cats and Dogs pages.
An October ringworm outbreak at the shelter has left eighteen of our twenty-one adoptable pets infected. Infected pets include:
Alameda Adriano (adopted after infection) Acosta Aguafria SilverBelle ChiangMai Siobhan Wasabe Lambert Fantasia Doolittle Melinda Six unnamed leMutte puppies
This leaves only Cupid (who is on “longtimers discount”), Surat (currently on “adoption pending”), and Zorro uninfected.
All of these pets (except, of course, Adriano, since he’s already with his new owner) entered treatment on Monday, November 1.
It is important to understand that ringworm is nothing to be afraid of. It is, in fact, even less serious of an infection than athlete’s foot or those mushrooms in your lawn. Stay tuned for a blog about ringworm and why it’s nothing to fear.
Three cats and a dog were adopted: Slinky on Tuesday 11/2, Cavil on Wednesday 11/3, Chili on Friday 11/5, and Adriano on Saturday 11/6. Wish them long, happy lives with their new owners!
In addition, Surat the Siamese mix is on “adoption pending” status as of Thursday 11/11.
A ringworm outbreak at the shelter has left all our adoptable kittens and six new leMutte puppies infected. They are all in treatment as of Monday 11/1. Stay tuned for more details.
