  • Beagle, Pit Bull Terrier
Professor Tommy is a uniquely colored Mexi-mix approx 9 years old and 50 lbs. He is super sweet and gets along great with all other dogs. He will growl a bit if you get close to him while he is eating but it is just a "warning". Tommy is learning to go for walks with his foster brother Harley. He has a slight limp in his gait which may have been from a previous injury (hit by car?). It doesn't seem to affect him too much, however he chooses not to run. He has a permanent and very charming head tilt due to a severe ear infection caused by a dog bite. He received an ear canal ablation so he can hear. Tommy is respectful of other dogs and only barks when there is something alerting him. Tommy was rescued by a woman in Mexico that partnered with Elaine at AtChoo rescue in LA after he was found wandering the streets with his wounded ear. He appears to have been otherwise well cared for.

  • Chihuahua
Juliet is such a love bug! If you are the one she bonds with she will forever be by your side. Although she is fine roaming the house and yard with other dogs, she's not too crazy about sharing her human if she is engaged in snuggling. She is a great sleeper, no resource guarding and she loves snacks. She will join you for walks, but truth be told, she's just not that into it. She would rather just sit on your lap and chill. Juliet will be best in a home she doesn't need to share with other canines. She is the quintessential Chi Diva. All she wants is a warm lap and a blanket to curl up under.

She will do best in a home with some fun loving, rambunctious fur kids to play with. She is being fostered with 4 curmudgeons that find her enthusiasm for life a bit overwhelming. She needs a playmate or two or many! This girl is a dream for anyone looking to add an easy breezy fur kid to their pack. You gotta see her when the sun hits her coat, it's astonishing!
