Auggie and Izzy Transport Day

Auggie

Auggie is a 3-mos-old Lab/Giant Schnauzer mix.  Auggie is a happy and affectionate boy with plenty of puppy energy.  He likes to cuddle, and also likes to play and wrestle with his sister and foster siblings.  He likes to fetch tennis balls and loves racing around the yard. Auggie is looking for a home where someone is around most of the time and will provide him lots of love, supervision, training and plenty of exercise.  He'd also enjoy a doggy sibling to play with.  He's a good puppy, but when he's naughty, it sure is hard to resist that cute face!!!

Izzy and Auggie Transport Day

Izzy

Izzy is a 3-mos-old Lab/Giant Schnauzer mix.  This sweet girl loves everyone she meets and will shower you with kisses.  Izzy likes to play with her brother and foster siblings, and loves, loves, loves to run.  She's looking for an active family who is home most of the time and will get her plenty of exercise.  Although we never know what they'll love when they get older, she may make a great running and hiking partner.  Her forever home should have a yard that she can run around in, and she'd love to have a doggy playmate as part of her new family.

Yard exploration with Apricot

Apricot is pure sweetness

Apricot - Adoption Hold

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.

Fry Finds A Slipper

Fry - Adopted

Fry is a 3-month-old male golden retriever.  He and his brothers were turned into a shelter with suspected pectus excavatum, but thankfully they've outgrown it.  Fry is a typical active puppy with lots of energy and curiosity.  He's a smart boy and is quickly picking up on his house training in his foster home, and when he doesn't make it outside he uses his potty pads.  He loves to play with his foster brother and he's learning a lot from him.  Fry is looking for a forever home with another large dog who is socially mature, as he's great at following what other dogs are doing.  He loves exploring his yard and is a big fan of water.  He's good in the car and is overall a really fun and entertaining pup.  He'd like to refine his manners with training and, of course, needs an active family since he's got plenty of energy.

Tater - Adopted

We were asked by a local shelter to help a litter of puppies who were surrendered because they were born with Pectus Excavatum - a congenital defect where the ribs and sternum do not grow properly. This deformity results in a concave chest and causes compression of the heart and lungs. Difficult breathing, exercise intolerance and heart issues/disease can all develop. These puppies have seen a surgeon, radiologist, and cardiologist to determine the extent of the defect, treatment, and prognosis. All four puppies displayed heart murmurs which may resolve on its own in time.  At this point Tater who has been diagnosed with very minimal Pectus Excavatum which may not be of clinical significance is healthy enough to be adopted. Tater is looking for a home where someone is home a lot so he can receive all the love, socialization, and training a puppy requires.

Spud - Adopted

We were asked by a local shelter to help a litter of puppies who were surrendered because they were born with Pectus Excavatum - a congenital defect where the ribs and sternum do not grow properly. This deformity results in a concave chest and causes compression of the heart and lungs. Difficult breathing, exercise intolerance and heart issues/disease can all develop. These puppies have seen a surgeon, radiologist, and cardiologist to determine the extent of the defect, treatment, and prognosis. All four puppies displayed heart murmurs which may resolve on its own in time.  Initially Spud was going to need surgery to fix his Pectus Excavatum, but it turns out his defect fixed itself naturally - this is what the surgeon told us when Spud was taken in for his surgical appointment. At this point, Spud is ready for adoption. He is looking for a home where someone is home a lot so he can receive all the love, socialization, and training a puppy requires.

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

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.
