Not much is known about this guy's life before he landed in the Contra Costa County shelter in Martinez, but fortunately for him his winning ways got him to safety. Floyd loves everyone he meets, human and canine. A 2-year-old Lab/border collie mix, he's energetic and wants to play, play, play; he's also very intelligent and quick to learn, and would be the perfect companion for an active lifestyle–he's one who'll want to come with you on your treks and outings and make them twice as great.
Funded entirely by donations, the Berkeley East Bay Humane Society has been helping dogs like Floyd, not to mention cats, rabbits, birds and other critters in need, since 1927—as well as offering an acclaimed dog training program and other services. All that seemed doomed last year when a devastating fire struck the shelter. But overwhelming support from volunteers, donors and the community, as most recently seen in July at the annual Bay to Barkers event, has enabled the organization to literally rise from the ashes and continue its lifesaving work.
