Julio is a diminutive 6.5-lbs neutered male Chihuahua with super-model long legs who was rescued from a high kill LA County shelter. He is around 2 years old. This frail little lover is best in an adult only home with no large breed dogs or small children. He is very playful and has a very happy disposition and wants nothing more than to be in your lap, or prancing along side you. He is a medium energy little guy and would be best placed with another small breed dog in the home. Julio has been trained to “take care of business” outside and is not pad trained. In an Adoption Trial!!
Jacque the AKC Papillon was surrendered by his Owners to us as they were relocating and were unable to take him. Jacque is a typical Papillon, aloof to strangers at first, until he decides you are not a threat to his Pet Parent. He weighs around 14-lbs, so is larger than breed standards, is active and enjoys (and needs) walking a couple of miles a day. He has very nice house manners, crates and travels very well. An adult household is best for Jacque. We have given him a dental and he is overall very healthy for his 9.5 years young of age. Papillons are long lived so he is middle aged by human standards. They are a shedding breed and Jacque requires a daily brushing. Jacque is living in a foster home with other small breed dogs, although he would be just as happy being an only dog, as he bonds very closely with his Pet Parent. Jacque’s mortal enemies are cats. Jacque is not a Beginner dog – he needs someone experienced specifically with his breed as well as a leash reactive dog . He has been trained to “take care of business” outside and is not pad trained.
Niles was rescued from a high kill LA County shelter where he ended up through no fault of his own. Even though he had a microchip and his previous Owners were contacted they never came to collect him. so we took him in to our rescue. He has turned out to be an absolute delight due to his loving, pleasing nature. Niles is around 3 years old, weights 6.5-lbs and is a neutered male Heavy Orange Sable Yoranian (Pomeranian X Yorkie (Yorkshire Terrier) blend. He loves other dogs and wants nothing more to do than play or give lots of cuddles to his Pet Parent. He is best placed in a home with another small breed dog. We suspect he will get along with cats just fine as he is a submissive little boy. Due to his diminutive size no large breed dogs or small children, please. Niles has been prior pad trained but currently he is going outside to take care of business.
Magnum was rescued from the Riverside shelter where he ended up, after being found wandering alone in a local car park. This little 6.5-lbs fluff ball probably spent much of his 4 years of life living outside, and was most likely used for stud services. Those days are now over for him and he has been neutered. Magnum has the cutest little bark – it sounds as if he is saying “Mama”! He loves his walkies and car rides and basically being by your side at all times. Magnum would be fine as an only dog as he is more people orientated versus wanting to interact with his foster fur-brothers and sisters, so if you are looking for a playmate or companion for your dog, he is not the right match. Magnum is quite bossy towards other dogs. He would be best suited with a work-from-home professional or semi-active Retiree, without small children in the home. Magnum is not house broken and even though he is working hard on this concept it is not as important to him as it would be to his Pet Parent! He also has some quirks, such as he does not like the top of his head being touched, so we are looking for someone with breed-specific or puppy mill survivor dog experience for Magnum’s ideal placement.
Harlow is a beautiful pure-breed, 3 to 4 year old spayed female Pomeranian who weighs around 9-lbs under all her luxurious blonde hair. She was rescued from a high kill LA City shelter where she had ended up as a stray, heavily matted and very thin. Harlow is a happy, bouncy girl who loves to play with her foster fur-brother and sisters and would be best placed in a home with another dog around her same age with whom to play. She is on the submissive side and unlike many of her breed, is not a barker. Refined would be the ideal word to describe this beautiful, loving little girl. Harlow crates well, travels beautifully in the car and loves to be by your side. She is fair as far as walking on the leash but could do with some additional training, as she likes to think she is running the Iditarod at times. Harlow would be suited to a quiet home with a professional who works at least part-time out of the home, an active retired or semi-retired couple or family with older children (over the age of 10+ years).
Shadow was rescued from a high kill LA County shelter where he had been turned in by his Owner at the age of 13 with the comment that she no longer had any time for him. He had little chance of getting out, not only due to his age making him a senior, he was also a black dog so hard to see in the runs, he is missing his left eye, his right eye has a cataract so he sees very little, but his mouth was festering mess of infection. He was basically starving to death as he could not eat due to the pain. Shadow had a much needed dental, was neutered had blood work and urinalysis done and is now happy and surprising healthy for his age. He lost all but six of his teeth but he can now eat without any pain and is putting on much needed weight – and he does love his food!! Shadow does not ask for much – a soft bed, warmth and good food. He is happy and loves to follow his Foster Mum around the house or just lie contentedly in his pet bed. Shadow would be best placed in a quiet, adult only home with no large breed dogs. He is fine with other small breed dogs and cats and is not a barker.
Moshe is approximately a 5 year old, 7.5-lbs neutered male Piebald parti-coloured Pomeranian who was rescued from a high kill rural shelter. He wound up at the shelter with a bad injury to his eye, most likely having been hit by a car. His eye was not able to be saved, but this sweet little boy has not allowed this disability to sour him at all. Moshe will make an ideal lap dog , shopping and walking companion for a quieter, peaceful home without small children or large breed dogs. He does not like cats as he is scared of them (not that he would ever admit it)!
Sterling is a 2 and a half year old, 6.5-lbs pure breed neutered male lavender Pomeranian. He is a wonderful little boy but needs an experienced Pomeranian owner who can continue his socialization. His coat is growing in nicely with some homeopathic treatments. Sterling is best in an adult only home. He tolerates other small breed dogs, but does not play with them, as he does not know how and wants desperately to bond with a person. Sterling is a happy boy overall and will make you laugh with his bouncy hops as he bounds around the garden just enjoying life!
Vanna White is a pure breed, 8.5 years young, cream Pomeranian. She is currently on a diet as she is a little plump. Her ideal weight is around 8.5-lbs and with a set meal plan and exercise we anticipate the weight melting off her! Vanna is very sweet and loves to by by your side. She was released for retirement by a reputable breeder and is now looking for a quiet home in which to spend her retirement. Vanna has been spayed, had a large hernia repaired, a tumor (benign) removed from her mouth and a dental, which resulted all but three teeth removed. Now fully recovered, Vanna is looking for her furever home with a retired, semi-retired or work from home couple or single person. She does well with other small breed dogs, but does not play with them…..We suspects cats will not be an issue with her.
Maize is a pure breed Orange Pomeranian who was rescued from a high-kill LA County shelter where she had been turned in as a stray. She had a large hernia, about the size of a softball that we found out was her uterus and a deceased puppy when our Vet spayed her and repaired the hernia. At that time she was also given a nice refreshing dental. Our Veterinarian has aged her at around 4 years of age. Maize is very good in the house, crates well, enjoys rides in the car, is not a barker and just likes to be by your side. She is best suited to a home that is on the quieter side with a retired, semi-retired or work from home (at least part-time) couple, or single person. Maize is not bothered about having another doggie companion and is quite happy to have all the attention lavished on her. She does well with other small breed dogs, but is a dominant female and will assert herself as a leader.
Misty Blue is a long-haired, blue merle Chihuahua rescued from a high kill LA County shelter where she sat patiently for over 5 weeks waiting to be adopted. This beauty is best in a quieter, adult only home. She needs to be given time to trust and not rushed with being overly fussed with initially. We believe from observing her in her foster home that she has been treated with a heavy hand in the past. Misty is around 5 years old and weighs about 10-lbs…. She travels well in the car, crates well and has excellent house manners. She is low maintenance as far as exercise, and needs a nice garden in which to sun and chase lizards. Misty barks to alert but otherwise is quiet and likes to hang out with you while you watch Telly or surf Facebook.
Wynton is a 10 year old Toy Poodle who was surrendered as “a stray” by his former Owners stating he had seizures. So far we have not observed any seizures, he eats like a werewolf and is a happy little camper. He has had a clean bill of health from our Veterinarian, has been neutered and given a long overdue dental and is on supplements to help with his walking as he has a fairly bad luxating patella on his rear left leg. Wynton is low energy, like to motor around at his own pace, is wonderful as far as house manners, loves car rides and being carried, or pushed in his stroller. This wonderful little 4-lbs of love is best in a quieter adult home where he can be lavished with love and attention. He is not a barker except when he needs to take a facility break.
Clover is a 12-week old, spayed female Taco Terrier who was rescued from a high kill San Joaquin Valley shelter, where she and her brother had ended up as strays….. Clover is very petite and weighs in at just 3-lbs. This diminutive little girl will probably top out at around 6-lbs when fully grown.
Clarke is a 12-week old, 5.5-lbs neutered male Taco Terrier who ended up at a high kill San Joaquin Valley shelter at the tender age of 6-weeks, and through no fault of his own. He is a chunky little chap, who is confident, happy and super smart. We expect his full-grown size to be around 12-lbs!
Bayou is a gorgeous pure bred Blue & Tan Pomeranian who weighs about 8-lbs and is 7 years young. He is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. This little boy came in to our rescue after he was retired from a breeding programme. He is shy, is slowly leaning all about the world around him and needs a quiet, patient person to bring him out of his shell.
Cashew is a 16-week old neutered male Maltese X Jack Russell Terrier blend who was rescued just prior to being turned in to a high kill shelter as his previous Owners felt he was “nit a real Terrier”. We were not sure by what they meant but we inducted him in to our rescue as a puppy should not spend his days in a high kill LA County shelter. Cashew is super-smart, loves to play with other dogs, is good with cats and enjoys being with gentle children over the age of 8+ years, with previous small dog experience. He is a little sensitive and can be a little needy, wanting to be with you all the time, but he crates well at night and is continuing to build his confidence. Cash walks very nciely on a leash and being only 7-lbs (and not expected to grow much bigger) is highly portable for Winnebago travelers.
