IMG_6171Sweet Aurora is looking for a forever home – again. She was happy to see her foster family again and showed her affection by crawling right on to their laps and taking a relaxed snooze. The beauty of foster homes! But, Aurora really needs a forever home. She would probably like an only-dog home. She is in a foster home with other large dogs and does fine but really doesn’t like attempts to play by the other dogs or too much sniffing and nosing. She doesn’t seem to mind the other old dog – they both mind their own business. She is fine with cats. Aurora is around 8 years old and a very good girl. She has great house manners, is house-trained and a gem to have around the home. She is very affectionate and is hoping that her future person will consider her a lap dog. Aurora has some aches and pains and will need some medication and care for achy joints. Aurora is spayed and vaccinated. Please let us know if have a forever place for Aurora.

Kona is a very loving and sweet chocolate Pitt needing a forever home. Kona lives life with lots of enthusiasm! She loves to play, run and fetch. She is IMG_5661looking for an active family to give her plenty of exercise and continue her training. Kona has been working with a trainer and she has come a long way in her basic manners and obedience. Kona is eager to show you all of her skills! She is leash trained for walking, running and bike rides. Have a treadmill? Kona is ready to get her exercise on a treadmill on those winter days when nobody wants to brave the cold. Kona has also started some electronic collar work to advance her off-leash work. Anyone looking to adopt Kona must be willing to follow a training program set in motion by her trainer. This will ensure Kona’s successful transition into a new home and lead to a successful adoption. While Kona is in a foster home with other dogs, Kona’s trainer is recommending a single-pet home. Kona is spayed, vaccinated, house-trained and crate-trained. Please let us know if Kona is the forever dog for you. Please fill out an application and then we can put you in touch with Kona’s foster and trainer. Thank you!
IMG_1768LUZ is a very pretty Chihuahua. Luz was surrendered to a high-kill shelter in Los Angeles and things were not looking up. On a lucky Valentines day, Luz was pulled from that shelter and made the drive north with one of our volunteers. She is now in a foster home with other dogs and cats and she has fit in just fine with everything. Her foster Mom tells us she is very affectionate and loves to give kisses. This sweet girl just seems so happy to have been given a second chance. Luz is estimated to be about 11 years old and loves snuggling, pillows and anything warm and cozy. We had her vet checked and her teeth cleaned when she arrived. Unfortunately, she needed quite a few of those teeth pulled so there are not too many left in there! Luz is spayed, vaccinated and house-trained. If you think you can provide a forever home to this sweet girl and spoil her and love her for the rest of her days then please fill out a dog application!
