Hope's Story...

We rescued Hope from a high kill shelter and she was very thin, dirty and scared.  She has received a lot of TLC and is now happy and looking great.  Hope is approximately 5 years old and weighs 55 pounds. She is good with other dogs but can be selective so she will need an experienced owner.  She does get a little anxious when meeting other dogs so she needs a slow and proper leash introduction.  She would do best as an only dog unless you have bully breed experience and are a strong pack leader.  Hope loves to run and play and also loves cuddles! She loves her walks and is leash trained.  Hope will need a home that has the time to continue her training and she will need plenty of daily exercise as she has a good deal of energy. Hope loves all people but due to her size, we will not place her in a home with young children.


Check out Raffi's rescue video!

Raffi was living a lonely life on the streets and was so scared  when he was rescued by Hope For Paws Rescue. They chased him for quite some time before they were finally able to catch him.  We teamed up with Hope For Paws to help find Raffi his forever home.  Raffi is shy with people he does not know but warms up once he gets to know you and feels safe.  It does take him time to come out of his shell so he will need someone who is patient.  He has limited hearing but he can hear louder sounds. He will need an experienced owner as he needs guidance and someone to build his confidence.  Raffi loves other dogs and he will need a home with another confident dog that he can watch and learn from.  He is good with cats too. He will need a calm household where he is not left for long hours and no young children but calm older children are okay.  Raffi loves to go on walks and rides well in the car.  Raffi is about 7 years old and weighs 9 pounds. The adoption fee is $350 and Raffi is fully vetted including blood panel, thyroid test, urinalysis, fecal tested and heartworm test (negative) and anesthetic dental cleaning.

Jelly Belly's Story...
Poor little Jelly Belly was turned in as a stray at a high kill shelter. She was in terrible shape and no one wanted this poor little girl. We rescued her and now she is safe and happy. We have her on a good diet and she is doing great. Jelly Belly is about 8 years old, and weighs 46 pounds. She is good with most other dogs but likes to be in charge, so she would be best as an only dog or someone with bully breed experience. She likes to chase cats so a home without cats would be best.  She can be shy at times when meeting new people but once she warms up, she will sit on your lap for pets and love. She is medium energy and will need an owner who has the time to continue her training and exercise her daily with short walks. Jelly Belly is looking for someone who will love her forever. The adoption fee is $300 and Jelly is fully vetted.

Fido is in need of a forever home because her owner recently passed away. Fido is a rough coated Jack Russell terrier and about 14 years old and weighs 17 pounds. She is smart, alert, attentive, loving, spry.   She likes to stay close to her human and thoroughly enjoys walks, car rides, sitting on the sofa curled up. She will act like a puppy and will do tricks for treats and loves being spoiled with love and treats.

As most Jack Russell terriers, she likes to be top dog and therefore will need a home with no other pets or small children. She shouldn’t be brought to a dog park or out where other dogs may run up and startle her.  She prefers her human companion over other dogs.  She is looking to be in a home where she would get loving attention and not be left for long periods of time.  She will need a yard for safe daytime access to go to the bathroom or hang out and get some sun and mostly just hang out with her human.   She is healthy, spayed, microchipped, up to date on vaccinations and senior blood work/urinalysis. 

***We do not typically adopt out of Southern California and we do not ship our dogs.***
