Julie and Norman

Norman and Julie

Leave No Paws Behind rescued 3 emaciated dogs from the San Bernardino shelter. Two of those dogs were Julie and Norman, seen above. Norman is the tan dog on the left, and Julie is the grey/blue on the right. Both of these dogs were in dangerous shape when we rescued them, but were incredibly sweet, gentle, and excited to be out of the shelter.

The Amazing Arlo

We at Leave No Paws Behind essentially rescued Arlo sight unseen on 3/23/18. I had come to the shelter the day before to meet him, but he was taken to the shelter's vet off site to have a tumor looked at. We placed a CTA (commitment to adopt) on him that night, and came back the next morning. This was how we first met Arlo. In a kennel at the shelter's infirmary, with a massive tumor on his neck that was dripping blood, and a baseball sized knot on his right front leg. We could smell him before we could see him.

Easter is a time of celebration, family gatherings, egg hunts, chocolate candies and pretty baskets. Lots of shiny plastic eggs and pretty flowers in center pieces to make the house festive for company. We put together this post to help you keep your pet safe during the Easter/Spring time season.

Dog Body Language And Anxiety


A happy dog smiles with his whole body

Hi everybody! Today I want to discuss something that is important to understand for the health and mental well being of our animals. Anxiety in dogs, being able to read a dog's body language, and understanding (and respecting) your own pet's boundaries and limitations. I deal with issues like this on a daily basis, both as a service dog handler working a dog in public, and as an animal rescuer, dealing with pulling animals from shelters either to be rescued, or to have their picture taken for networking.

2018 Is The Year Of The Dog


February 16th marked the beginning of the Chinese New Year. Based on the Chinese zodiac, 2018 is the year of the dog! People born in the  are said to be conservative and full of justice. Because of their loyalty, Dogs are valued in the workplace. They rarely break rules, except for people important to them. In life, they only wish to live quietly with their family. Essentially, much like real dogs, they are loyal and true to their family. Well, around here we LOVE dogs (and cats too, but they have to wait until the Year of the Tiger 😉). So we thought we would take this time to give you a little insight into our very own dogs and their unique personalities!
