Denali - Medical Hold

Denali is a 2 year old, wonderful family dog who gets along with everyone.  He loves attention that involves lots of petting. We had a thorough medical exam including x-rays on his hips because we noticed a limp when he was first brought into rescue. We discovered that Denali had a dislocated hip and possible patella luxation, probably from a past trauma that he suffered.   He has now been through surgery and is on the road to recovery.  This involves restricted activity for a few weeks, so only walking on leash for now. Although Denali must have been in substantial pain before we knew his diagnosis, his tail would always keep thumping whenever anyone came near. Denali weighs about 52lbs, has excellent house manners, loves to hang under his foster’s desk to be close and is not very talkative. Because he rarely barks, he has figured out how to get his foster up in the morning (not too early) by pulling the bed covers off his fosters.  They can’t get mad because he is just so darn cute.

Theo - Adopted

Meet Theo, the new kid on our block!  This young, two year old (we think) boy is 80 pounds and a retriever mix, but we're not sure what the mix is. All we know is that there is a lot of sweetness mixed in with that beautiful coat and goofy smile.  Theo came to us from a family that had to move from a house to an apartment that did not permit dogs.  We think he was treated well as Theo absolutely loves being with people, enjoys riding in the car and just wants to please.  He is a terrific playmate with other big dogs (we haven't tried him with small dogs yet), and has been neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.  Theo really enjoys his walks and is pretty easy on leash, sometimes showing an interest in birds or dogs being walked nearby, all in the name of curiosity and a desire to make new friends. His fosters work from home and report that he is happy to chill while they are busy, not interrupting or barking.  Happily, he appears to be housetrained as there have been no accidents in the house.

Sunny

Sunny was found as a stray and was skin and bones, but very friendly.  Now after a couple of months in a foster home, this petite one-year old girl has put on some much-needed weight, learned some house manners, loves playing with her foster doggy siblings, and loves her walks.  Her ideal home will have her humans home more often than not to continue with her manners and training. Sunny would thrive in a family who love the outdoors too. For being a smaller girl (around 35-39 pounds), she has a big appetite, a lot of energy, and will keep her family busy!  She loves playing with other dogs, so her ideal forever home will have another playful canine companion who enjoys playing all day long.
Sunny is keenly aware of her surroundings and will let you know through her bark when someone/something is nearby. She does not hesitate to jump in your lap and will greet you with lots of kisses when you wake up in the morning or return home. Proper introductions are important as she can be a little bossy when meeting new dogs and/or with her toys and food.  Sunny is very motivated by treats and will bring you many indoor and outdoor gifts. She is a wonderful girl who has so much potential being a forever friend to another canine and her people!

Levi - Adoption Pending

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.

Blondie

This beautiful lady is six years young - her foster mom calls her the Peter Pan of dogs.  She is housetrained and has a nice balance of being independent and Velcro. 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 gets along with other dogs and 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.

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.
