Hayley Needs a Foster or Forever Home!

Hayley – This Staffy Mix Needs Foster or Adopter ASAP!

Pretty little Haley is a 1 year old female black and white American Staffordshire terrier mix that has a small build, weighing about 35lbs. She is so cute with her stand up ears!

She was just rescued from a high kill shelter in Socal in her final hours (where they euthanize dogs daily due to lack of space). Everyone that met her at the shelter said she is just the sweetest little girl that does fine with other well-mannered dogs (especially likes to play with male dogs), although she prefers to be with humans. She was good with the kids she met too. She seems to have too much interest in cats, birds and squirrels so would need a home with No cats or small critters.

Haley would like a home where she is not left home alone too much, at least initially. She is crate trained.

Haley Urgently needs a home to go to – either a foster or a permanent home.

Take a look at Hayley in her videos: You can see how cute she is here with her shelter kennel mate- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LXrcZ53cDdM

Angel – Please give me a home or foster me!

Angel frontLittle Fox dogAngel face1Little Chow Mix

Angel is the perfect family dog!  She is a lovely female Chow/ Kelpie mix who is about 3 years old and weighs about 35lbs. She has a pretty golden-red coat and is a great “go anywhere” size. She is a real darling, very affectionate, and super smart. She is alert, energetic, plays well with other dogs, and walks well on a leash. She is always so happy to be out and about with you that she turns and gives you smiles as you’re going along.  It’s like being with another person!

Angel is eager to have a home of her own, after being rescued from a SoCal shelter where she was supposed to be put down with her buddy Leo  - we couldn’t let that happen so we rescued them both. Leo has already been adopted and now Angel says it’s her turn! She will make a wonderful family addition. Due to her breed mix she needs a home with NO cats or small critters.

Please consider fostering or adopting this precious girl.

Misty – Needs a home or foster URGENTLY

Misty FreedomMisty ISmiling MistyMisty face and smile

Misty is a very beautiful pale grey and white Weimaraner/ Staffy/ lab mix. She is about 2 years old, 50 lbs and is a great, smallish lab size. She is young, playful and also mellow, she can be quiet yet she also likes to get a nice run in.  She relates to her human and connects.  Misty was rescued from an overcrowded shelter but even the busy staff there recognized what a special dog she was. They thought that with training she would make a great therapy or companion dog. We can see why. She is gentle, sensitive and highly intelligent.  She’s curious and interested in everything – especially the people happenings! She is good with other dogs and just a pleasure to have around. It is hard for such a sensitive, people oriented dog to be in boarding so we would really love to find this gentle girl a foster or forever home as soon as possible.

Reggie – I need a home or foster NOW!

Little D (2)Reggie IIReggie

MEET REGGIE – NEEDS ADOPTER OR FOSTER

Reggie is one smart cookie. You may have heard some pit bull owners say, “It’s like having another person in the house”. They could have been talking about Reggie! You can actually see this dog figuring things out. He has a wonderful personality too, all big smiles, wags and a “so happy to meet you” dance that cheers us up every day.  Reggie is full of potential, he just needs someone who can give him the exercise and basic training he needs. He’ll learn fast and you will have a truly awesome dog. Reggie is about 2/3 years old and weighs about 55lbs. No cats please.

Reggie was recently in a temporary foster to help him overcome his shelter experience. They quickly fell in love with this sweet boy and here is what they had to say about him:

“Reggie is a great dog, that will make a loyal and friendly companion.  He is tons of fun and  loves to go on walks and hikes, and even enjoys a quick splash in the water.  He knows basic commands (sit, stay, and come). He’s extremely intelligent and eager to learn. He corrects well, and without much fuss. He is house trained and is fine hanging out in his kennel, sometimes heading in on his own in the afternoon and evening. We hope Reggie finds a permanent home soon because he is an awesome dog!”

If you are interested in Fostering or Adopting Reggie, please contact us ASAP and include your completed Adoption Application Form.

Georgia – I need a new home or foster home URGENTLY!

Georgia Shelter PhotoGeorgia1

Georgia is an affectionate tan Boxer/Lab mix who is about 3 years old. She is a nice manageable size, and currently weighs about 40lbs. She is gentle, mellow in her crate, intelligent and has good manners. She loves to take leash walks and is very easy to walk, never pulling and often checking back to make sure you are enjoying yourself as much as she is!

This sweet slender girl is eager to have her own human to cuddle up and to play with her.

Georgia is just a lovely girl who clearly fell on hard times. She was recently rescued from a high kill shelter in Southern California and is understandably a little bit fearful and anxious sometimes from her recent stray days. Initially she can feel a bit uneasy and possibly be barky when meeting new dogs, but she redirects easily once she learns what is expected of her.

She loves ladies and is currently still a bit fearful of strange men, although she has very quickly taken to her male handlers who are gentle with her. She would do best with older children (probably over 12yrs old) since she can still get scared quite easily by loud noises or lots of activity going on around her. We are not sure how she would be around cats (not tested), but we think she may be fine with dog-savvy cats after proper introduction.

A person who has some experience with timid dogs will love to see this girl blossom, as she already has since we rescued her, even in a boarding environment. Initially a relatively mellow, low stimulus environment may be best for her.

Most of all she needs love and attention – but she will quickly fit in with family life and will not be a high maintenance dog.

She is a sweetheart that would make a wonderful new family member!

Miss Mary – I need a home!

Mary IIMary III

Meet Miss Mary” – Needs Adopter or Foster ASAP!!

Mary’s lovely daughter was adopted and now Mary is STILL looking for her forever home, she misses her daughter – won’t you consider fostering or better yet adopting Mary??

Lovely Miss Mary is a sweet and gentle girl. She is a ~2-3 years old female Black Lab mix with some white accent coloring on her chest and the tips of her toes. She is a nice manageable size with a build a bit smaller than a typical Lab. She is spayed and up-to-date on her shots. She does fine with other dogs and mostly just wants a loving home of her own!

Sadly Mary and her sister “Princess” (she is also Listed needing a foster ASAP, and available for adoption) found themselves Out of Time on Death Row at a small rural over-crowded shelter in Socal. When one of our rescue contacts told us about these lovely Lab mix girls, we knew we had to step up and help save them to give them their second chance.

We want to rescue Mary from the shelter ASAP, but she needs to have a suitable foster or permanent home to go to once saved.

Please contact us ASAP by email if you could be a good match for Mary and can open your heart and home to either Foster or Adopt her.

Ben – Needs a foster or home ASAP!

DSC_6939Ben go bye byeDSC_6940

Ben is a big love of a dog. He’s about 2 years old and as gentle and sweet natured as they come. Maybe it’s that face, or his super soft fur, but there is something about Ben that just makes you want to hug him. And that’s fine with Ben because he loves everyone! He wants nothing more than to hang out and be part of whatever’s going on. He’s up for hikes and adventures but he can also chill and laze away the afternoon at your side. He walks nicely on the leash, is good with other dogs and is so willing to please he’ll be easy to train. He’d be a great dog for an active family. Ben was on death row in a Southern California shelter and just made it out in the nick of time.  Now we’d love to find this big-hearted guy a foster or forever home.  No cats for Ben please.

Please let us know if you would like to foster or adopt Ben – he’ll make a wonderful addition to your family or home.

Jessie – Adopted!

Jessie up frontjessie4jessie5Jessie face

Jessie

Jessie is a large and very handsome pit/lab mix who was pulled at the last minute from a high kill shelter in Southern CA. He likes to show his gratitude by giving a lot of kisses and inviting his admirers to rub his tummy! Jessie is reserved and quiet and our guess is that he didn’t much of a life before coming to us. Perhaps he was a back yard dog with very little human interaction. He needs an experienced foster or adopter who will enjoy introducing him gradually to the wider world – including other dogs, the joys of play and long walks where he can sniff and explore to his hearts content.  It will be very rewarding to watch him come fully alive and grow into the awesome, loving dog he has the potential to be. He is very food oriented, being part lab, and that will help no end with his training!  Jessie needs a home with no cats and kids over 12 because of his size.

If your are intetested in adopting or fostering Jessie please contact
