Important Note

Lucky is best friends with Lexi. Please adopt both of them so they can stay together!
Lexi and Lucky are very bonded so we would like to re-home them TOGETHER. Lexi is much bigger than Lucky and often acts as his protector.

They live with several other dogs, both large and small breed (old and young). They have been in their current foster home since June 2013, so the adopter will need to be very patient during their transition.

These two would do great with an older person/couple who would let them sit on their lap or next to them on the couch. They both crave attention.

Lucky seems to be afraid of children. He has never snapped or bitten, but he often "screams" or rolls over on his back when a child approaches him. He acts like he may have been abused by children in the past.

About Cherished K-9 All Breed Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Big or small we love them all!

Our mission is to rescue and re-home neglected, abused and abandoned dogs.

We are a small rescue that picks up dogs off the streets and helps them find their homes or helps them find new homes.

We also help find homes for dogs that have been relinquished by their owners. In addition, we pull last-chance dogs from our local animal shelter.

Our goal is to assist the rescue community in our area in decreasing the euthanasia rate at the shelter.

Our dogs live in foster homes while waiting to be adopted. Our fosters love and care for them as if they are their own dogs.

We cannot do what we do without your help! Foster, Adopt or Donate today!

If you are interested in fostering or adopting one of our dogs, please email us at

Our Adoption Process...

After filling our our required Adoption Application, we will schedule a home visit. The home visit is to make sure our dog gets along with any existing pets in the home. We also check for obvious hazards and make sure the yard is secure.

If everything checks out OK, the next step is the Adoption Application, which finalizes the adoption. There is an adoption fee for each dog. (All dogs are spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations and micro-chipped.)

After the adoption is complete, there are follow-up wellness checks to make sure everything is working out for the adopters and the adopted dog.

At any time after the adoption is finalized, if the adopter decides to get rid of the dog, it must be returned to Cherished K-9 All Breed Rescue.
