** Hot Rod is currently in a foster home. Contact the shelter to meet this handsome guy!! **

Tireless fetch enthusiast seeks kind-hearted human with good arm. If Hot Rod could write his own profile, we’re pretty sure it would read something like that. He’s a ball dog and will run down and return the ball as long as it’s thrown and still have energy for a vigorous walk when fetch is done. A staff favorite for his sweet disposition, we’ve known Hot Rod a while as he’s stayed with us several times due to his original owner’s personal struggles. We don’t know his full history, but do know he’s lived some of his life in homeless camps around Berkeley. Hot Rod is ready to put that chapter behind him and meet a new human companion offering a warm home, soft bed and plenty of rounds of fetch. We know he’ll be a loyal friend – come meet Hot Rod today.

Be sure to check out his story in on Berkeleyside:


Where my name came from:

Let's face it: I'm good looking and made for speed. Just a little happier in the slow lane as I get older.

My ideal home would provide:

Lotsa love and some room on the couch.

My astrological sign is:

The Tennis Ball. Then, for after, the Meat Loaf.
