Hello, I'm Sierra, and I'm a spayed, light brown German Shepherd mix who is 3 years old. Right now, I'm living at the North County Shelter, but I'm hoping I get my own, forever home for the holidays. I tend to be quite shy, but once I'm in a comfortable environment, I'll blossom. I'm super sweet and very friendly, according to the people who have worked with me to find a home. I LOVE to be petted, and I'm a docile girl. I like other dogs and it's thought I'm very good and gentle with children. I can take treats nicely from your hand, I know how to 'sit' and 'come' and walk next to you. I'm at the North County Shelter, 2481 Palomar Airport Road, Carlsbad (760) 966-3255. If you call or come to meet me, be sure to have these numbers available: ID #: A1321762, NECKTAG #: N502, KENNEL #: N004.

Yes, they are cutie pies.

And they’re so new they don’t yet have names. We’ll leave that to you.

Naming a kitten is a special act, best left to the new kitten’s family of humans.

Check them out! At the Escondido Humane Society
