As his heart-shaped nose suggests, Nemo is a big lover. He is happiest going on car rides, sleeping on the pillow next to you or on a long hike. At home, his demeanor is quiet, mellow and toy-oriented. Off leash, Nemo is usually pretty friendly with other dogs and even has a few that he has playdates and sleepovers with.

Say hello to Disco, the sweetest, most playful dog in the Bay. Disco enjoys long walks, watching TV and one-on-one playdates. She walks well and does not react to other dogs, but if they do stop to say hello, Disco always wants to play, so this eager girl still has to learn some boundaries. Disco is ready to wrestle or play keep-away, from the moment she gets up in the morning. Her playful nature would make her the perfect sister for another fun-loving pup, but Disco also loves people and would be just as happy having all the attention to herself.

We doubt he could pilot a Millennium Falcon between planets like his namesake. Wookie is a wide-eyed wallflower at the moment, hoping to just fade into the background for a while, as he adjusts to new circumstances. Fortunately for him, he is more than pleasant to look at, so people do notice him in his newly-trimmed tan and black coat.

Biko, chihuahua mix

Biko is a charming male chihuahua mix currently residing at East Bay SPCA - Oakland Adoption Center.

Biko is neutered.

Here's what Biko's friends at East Bay SPCA - Oakland Adoption Center think of him:

Read more about Biko on Petfinder.

Biko is a busy bee, a miniature sleuth snooping for clues with his nose, followed by his busy feet and, if you're lucky, also by you, laughing at the other end of his leash. He is an entertaining little chihuahua — spontaneously playful, always curious and trusting. You'll want to take him for a big walk every day to give the neighbors a laugh. He's very smart and eager to learn new tricks. After his neighborhood detective job is done, he'll curl up with you in the evenings.
