Sunny

Little Sunny is brand new to our rescue.  At 10-months old, she was recently found as a stray and ended up at an area shelter, very emaciated.  She's in a foster home now, eating some high-quality food, learning house manners, building up her confidence, and starting to enjoy the good life.  Please check back for updates as we learn more about this sweet girl.

Levi

Levi is estimated to be 8 years young with a lot of pep in his step and happy go lucky attitude. He gets excited when he sees other dogs walk by but he does not bark at them and would rather just run along with them. One of his favorite times of the day is hearing the breakfast and dinner bells.  He is proving to be a great office assistant when he has a nice spot to curl up for naps and some toys to deconstruct.  We are teaching him some house and leash manners and being one of those Golden’s that want to please his people, it makes things fun. He likes to be in the middle of the action and he is not one to sit on the sidelines. Stay tuned for updates as we learn more about him.

Blondie

This beautiful lady is seven years young, housetrained, and has a Velcro personality. She enjoys walks around the neighborhood, stuffed toys, bones, and napping on the couch. Breakfast and dinner are Blondie’s favorite time of day and she hoots and tap dances when her meals are prepared. Blondie's foster mom started using a slow feeder and she took to it right away. Blondie’s ideal home doesn’t have children or cats. Blondie likes other dogs, but sometimes she doesn’t share so she would do best as the only resident dog in the house. Blondie is looking for a dog savvy adopter. She loves people and charms every person she meets. Blondie walks at a quick pace on her walks and sometimes she pulls when she knows where the squirrels congregate, or she gets excited about visiting her favorite house in the neighborhood because the owners hand out treats. Blondie almost always has a toy or bone in her mouth, and she loves to be brushed.  Blondie is a fan of ear, neck, and butt rubs, and is a great TV watching companion. Blondie sometimes likes to sleep on the bed with her people at night or on the couch.

Apple - Adoption Pending

Apple is a 4-month-old, beautiful Labrador mix.  Her amber eyes and white coat are striking.  We are guessing that she will be a medium to large dog.  She is super social and confident and loves to meet new people and dogs.  Her house training is going great, and she sleeps through the night.  She loves her doggie playmates but also loves to play fetch with her humans. We discovered she is a natural retriever.  She is a calm traveler and rides great in the car.  She is smart and ready to learn so she will need someone home most of the time to keep up with her education.  It is pretty easy to fall in love with this sweetheart.

Kahlua - Adopted

A chocolate Lab mix, Kahlua is about 10 months old and as sweet as they come.  She is friendly and warms up to people and other dogs quickly.  House trained with a strong desire to please her people, Kahlua is showing her foster family that she is eager to learn.  She knows "sit" and "come," and is close to having a "down" in her repertoire.  She is hearing the word "off" a lot at the moment because she loves to see what is up on counters and other furniture, but she responds readily when given verbal direction.  Kahlua is pretty good on leash and her foster family is helping to fine tune her directional skills during walks.  She has puppy energy so will need a family that will give her lots of exercise and would do well in a home with another dog, as she loves to play with her 1 1/2 year old foster sister.  Since she just arrived in rescue, we have lots to learn about her, so check back for updates.

Huxley - Adoption Pending

This chocolate Labrador is approximately 7-9 years old.  He has had a rough time of it based on the condition he was when turned into the shelter as a stray.  He was worse for the wear and in need of a bath.  He had hair loss, infected ears, loss of muscle and he was extremely underweight.  Even after having a difficult life before, he still came out with tail wagging asking for pets and cuddles.  This gentleman is a happy, easy-going guy who just wants to be near people.  He walks great on the leash and is non-reactive to dogs, cats, ducks and chickens.  (Yes, he has been exposed to all those!) He is about 12 pounds underweight but we are working on getting that remedied with some extra healthy calories and some exercise to build up his muscles.  Because this guy has started the twilight of his years, we would like to place him in a home where he will get lots of attention, great food, fun exercise, and lots and lots of cuddles.  He likes soft beds and couches to be able to snuggle better with in comfort.  We have not seen him around young children so no toddlers in the house, please.  If you are looking for a buddy that will reward you with his never-ending gratitude and love, this is the boy for you!

Auggie and Izzy Transport Day

Auggie

Auggie is a 4-mos-old Lab/Giant Schnauzer mix.  He is an incredibly sweet and smart puppy! He loves to play and is already learning to fetch. He loves playing with other dogs and is learning some manners- he would do great in a home with another dog. He is very affectionate and while he has plenty of puppy energy, he also loves to snuggle and would be thrilled to spend some time curled up on your lap. He is easy to house train and is learning to love his crate. Auggie would like a family where someone is home most of the time and who is committed to continuing his training.

Yard exploration with Apricot

Apricot is pure sweetness

Apricot - Adoption Pending

This little girl was born in September.  She is a Golden Retriever who came to us through an emergency hospital.  She was diagnosed with Parvo and the owner did not want to treat her knowing that it would be a long expensive hospital stay with lots of supportive care.  We stepped up and were able to provide her with whatever she needed.  After 6 days in the hospital, amazing care and lots of prayers, she started improving and rallied enough to leave.  She now has her puppy spirit and energy back and does all the fun things puppies do - to the delight of her foster family.  Our mission is to put some weight back on her and find her the perfect home. She will need a home where someone is home most of the day so she can receive all the love, socialization, and training a puppy requires.

Brady has pep in his step!

Brady - Adopted

Willow 

Willow recently arrived in rescue and is doing very well in her foster home.  She is getting along nicely with her foster siblings (two senior Golden Retrievers) and has adjusted quickly to the routine there.  She has been enthusiastic but polite when she encounters other dogs on her walks and a front clip harness has helped to curb her tendency to pull a little.  Willow comes with a resume that says she is fond of jumping up on people, so her foster mom is helping her learn better manners. Willow is a natural athlete and her foster mom suspects she might do well at agility or K9 nose work. She weighs 57 pounds and we have her at 1 1/2 years old.  Because she is showing us the puppy energy and playfulness we expect from a dog that age, she'll be looking for an active home with another friendly dog who will make her feel welcome.  We still don't know how she is with cats, but any kids in her next home should be 15 or older.

Jay Plays!

Jay Is Excited About Walking!

Jay - Adoption Pending

Jay is a Labrador Retriever mix who gets rave reviews from everybody who meets him.  Words like good natured, terrific walker, easy-going, really nice dog and more of the same are what we hear over and over again from his fosters.  Jay is really easy to love, and when loved, gives it back generously and sweetly.  Jay is 7 years old and, while we don't know much about his early life, he seems to have been loved and treated well by his humans, thus his endearing personality and enthusiasm for "shake."  Jay loves to go on long walks and enjoys taking his time to sniff a lot along the way, but is also good at chilling when the mood needs to be mellow.  Because Jay isn't a puppy he's polite and trained, but he's not an "old dog" yet because he's energetic, loves to play with toys and is eager to jump into the car for a ride.  He gets along well with other dogs, sharing his foster home with a resident dog nicely, but we don't know about children.  So far it seems like Jay doesn't know how to bark - he just gives happy groans.  We are learning more about this sweet boy every day so check back for updates.

Beyaz - Medical Hold

Our sweet Beyaz is going to have a tibial-plateau-leveling osteotomy (TPLO) on October 13th on her left leg to help correct a torn or ruptured ACL.  After she recovers from this, a second TPLO surgery will be scheduled for her right leg.
This regal looking, 1 1/2  year old female arrived on U.S. soil several months after being saved from a shelter by our rescue partners in Turkey.  Not only did they get her to a place of safety, they took excellent care of her medical needs making sure she was strong enough to make the arduous flight from Istanbul to LAX.  Beyaz had surgery on both knees for luxating patella and was still in recovery mode upon arriving.  She is being fostered in a home that has given her the time and the space she needed to adjust to the dramatic change of surroundings and to schedule some physical therapy as a follow up to her knee surgeries. Beyaz is a calm girl, not a barker, lanky, but currently weighs only 57 pounds.  She enjoys short walks and has low to moderate energy.  We don't know if she considers cats or kids her buddies, but she has spent time with a senior male Golden Retriever and gotten along with him very well.  For now, we would like to continue to build her endurance so we'll post updates as she progresses. Stay tuned.

Kiki

Kiki is a 2 year old, 40-45 lb female, Aussie/Flat coat retriever mix.  Kiki can be a bit shy, even fearful, with new people but with help, she can get quite comfortable.   It doesn’t take long until she is cuddled up with you, belly up for pets or loving to rest her head on your lap. She has medium energy that can be really brought out during walks and play time. Other than this though, Kiki is quite a relaxed dog. She has a very calm behavior in the car which tells us she would be a great road trip companion. Overall, she would be perfect for anyone who enjoys snuggling with their furry companion on the couch, but also wouldn’t mind going for a decent walk. She is knowledgeable with sit, down, come and stay and she gently takes her treats.  She likes toys to chew on but has not demonstrated any demolition skills yet.  She would like a family that wants to have her sleep with them and she does not take up too much room or overcrowd you.  Her house manners are impeccable and she will alert you when guests arrive.  She can get excited when she sees other dogs out walking but with continued training, she is becoming a fun walking companion.
