  • Leonberger, Chow Chow
  • Spayed/Neutered
Millie is one of the sweetest young ladies you could imagine, in fact, she was a shelter favorite at the North County SD animal shelter before she was adopted to be a community/resident dog at a care facility. Millie has had a very interesting adventure so far in her young life, somewhat like the movie Homeward Bound but we'll have to save that story for when you meet her! Millie is good with everyone, no complaints in that department. She's mellow, a little playful at times, and just wants to be part of a family...FUREVER!!! No more crossing borders for this lovely lady! Contact us to find out more about this very special girl!

Naomi lives with dogs and cats, she's good with all people, she transitioned really well from the scary shelter to our rescue and foster home, she's potty trained and she has healed extremely well from her spay, dental and mammary mass removal. In fact, she had 19 teeth removed so in case you are worried about future dentals well she likely won't have too many teeth to have cleaned! contact us today to set up a meet!

  • Pomeranian
  • Spayed/Neutered
Tadpole like Nemo and Dori believes no matter what your age, disability or ailment you should JUST KEEP SWIMMING!!!! Tadpole is about 10-12 years old and is a spunky fun loving guy. So much so that he doesn't let anything get in his way! Tadpole came to us from OC shelter with some spinal issues that made it challenging for him to walk. He sort of waddles like a tadpole! But watch out, once he gets going he's devilishly fast and now that he is on Rimadyl he's feeling so much better! Tadpole gets along great with female dogs and loves to be loved and cuddled, he's very social and outgoing and will sometimes get so excited to see you or be held that he might widdle the excitement out of himself! Belly bands are his best friend! Tadpole has a lot of love to give, he has already had a dental and very few teeth are left. I don't know how you couldn't just fall in love with this imperfectly adorable little guy!

FOREVER FOSTER WANTED!!!! Jane is a sweet gal and has had a rough go of it. You see she has the curse of the fair skinned pittie belly. Jane has had an incredible recovery, almost miraculous! When she came to us from OC shelter we weren't sure if we'd be able to help her. Her belly was covered with skin cancer, likely from too much lounging in the sun. Fortunately, the skin cancer was topical and was removed thanks to a 2 step surgical procedure from our incredible vets at Newport Beach Vet. Jane is great with big dogs, we don't really know how she is with little dogs and cats. Of course Jane is great with people, she's a pittie! Let us know if you'd to have this big old love bug join you on the couch, bed, for dinner and breakfast, She's available and interested!

  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Special Needs
Blanche is a golden girl without the sass! She is quite a walker, so it is not apparent to onlookers that she is completely blind. At home she prefers to be a lap dog, but lays quietly by herself or with another dog when we are busy. She has been great with bunnies, cats, and dogs big and small. Other than snores that sound like they come from a St. Bernard, she doesn't make a peep. She loves to sleep, so we hear the snores a lot! Blanche had Glaucoma in one eye so it had to be removed and she struggles with dry eye in her other eye so she will need lubricating drops and possibly long term eye ointment for life. Other than that Blanche is a great little gal who is ready to add some love and light to your life!

  • Shepherd
Sarah came to us from our local San Diego county shelter and had a very large wound on her back that seemed to wrap around her abdomen. Sarah is on the mend now and doing great and her patchy hair has grown into one of the softest coats in town thanks to coconut oil rubs downs by her foster mom. Sarah is a full figured gal but doing well thanks to a good diet, exercise and thyroid medication. Sarah is fabulous with other dogs, good with all 2 legged folk, loves the beach and going for car rides. Basically Sarah wants to know what fun adventures you have in store for her each and every day because she will be your co-pilot! Our foster mom who is a trainer says she's easy going and one on of the chillest foster dogs she's had.

Lola has had a dental and is ready to find that couch cushion or perfectly plush dog bed to get cozy on.

 . Sophie .
 . Sophie .
  • Cattle Dog
  • Spayed/Neutered
Sophie is a 10 year old Border Collie who loves to play fetch with a tennis ball. She will go and go until she drops! Sophie likes meeting people and is very social, she's always looking for a hand to nudge for a good petting! Sophie is good with other dogs outside of the home but inside the home her herding instincts kick into high gear and all she really wants to do at home is take a siesta. Sophie is easy to walk on the leash and even though she's a full figured gal she's used to taking long walks with her foster mom. Sophie is so good she'll even stay by your side off leash. Sophie rides nicely in the car and sits quietly for baths and grooming. Sophie may be a senior but she's looking for someone to play fetch with and go for walks around the town with. I have had my bloodwork done and in in good health and ready to find my new home!

What do you get when you put a little bit of sugar and spice and everything nice together? You get TULIP!!!!!! Tulip is scheduled for her dental and spay and is recovering from a skin condition. We get so many dogs with skin issues and I'm not sure if people realize how important good quality dog food is for your aging pets. Think about with people as they age and their bodies change. Well, it's the same for dogs! Once Tulip is back in tip top shape she will be available for adoption and make someone very happy!

 . Bender .
 . Bender .  . Bender .  . Bender .
  • Pit Bull Terrier
  • Spayed/Neutered
Chance and Bender are a bonded pair of middle aged pitties who grew up in a family with children. Sadly their family had to move right before the 4th of July and had nowhere for Chance and Bender to go so they brought them into a local shelter. Little did they know that shelters are overly crowded this time of year due to the fireworks and festivities and the boys we're given only a few days to find a new home or be euthanized. On the day they were scheduled to be euthanized due to lack of space we rescued them and have been getting to know them. What we found out is that these 2 boys are loving and loyal companions to one another and to any human they meet. Chance and bender are house trained, they are up to date on vaccines and microchipped. They are great with kids, well behaved on leash, and would like nothing more than to be your cuddle buddies! They would do best in a home with a yard to explore or someone willing to take them for walks. We know that 2 pitties sounds like a lot but in our experience a bonded pair is always easier to transition into a new home because they have each other!

He will cuddle, but also loves to spend his time sniffing and exploring.

Ethel was a part of a bonded duo but as life goes sometimes you have to say goodbye to the ones you love. Ethel said goodbye to Fred but has adjusted well considering and made new friends at her foster home. Ethel is about 13 years old and is the BOSS LADY which is rather hilarious to watch. Sometimes she'll try and assert herself and then within seconds she's distracted by something shiny and off she goes in the other direction. Ethel is a stout little Chihuahua but hey a lady needs her crew to know who's in charge. Really all you need to do is offer her arms or lap and she is good to go, it's really that easy!

Liam is such a spectacular love bug that we can't wait to show him off! At about 10 years old Liam is an older gentleman, while his Iditarod days are far behind him, he likes to stay active with daily walks. He is like an old man in a tracksuit who likes to do laps around the mall 🙂 But after a little walk, he is pretty pooped & content to snooze the afternoon away. Liam adores children and the highlight of his week are visits from his foster-mom's grandchildren (ages 3 and 6), he is gentle and sweet to them. Liam is crate trained and loves spending time in his crate- it is truly his bedroom! He naps in his crate & will go in anytime he is instructed to do so. Liam currently lives with other dogs, though his foster parents are very savvy with multi-dog households and monitors interactions closely. Liam would do better as an only dog.

She loves to play and loves to go for walks and explore her foster's yard with her fur friends.
