I was an evidence dog. My partner was killed in the abusive home I once lived in. I was the only survivor. When The Animal Hope & Wellness Foundation rescued me I was pregnant and ended up having a litter of five beautiful babies. Some of them have found homes and soon I hope they all do. But I long for a home too!

I have had a very hard life so it is taking me some time to feel safe. I don't like to be pet but I'm sweet and very gentle. I'll pee if someone tries to hold me. I just need some more time. A home environment would make it so much easier for me to understand and believe that my life is different now.

Anyone who has lived through abuse knows that healing takes time. It takes time to regain trust, time to feel secure again. In the last few months that I have been at the Foundation, I have greatly changed and am slowly opening up. Really I am a beautiful dog with a beautiful heart. I know I will make someone really happy.

It will take a special family to understand who I am. Someone who relates to abuse. Someone whom maybe themselves have been beaten. And even though I have suffered through endless nights of terror - I still believe that there is a happy ending for me. A loving home, with loving hands. Come find me mommy - find me...

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a team of independent rescuers who's main goal is to rescue dogs from the shelter/streets or bad situations and find them loving homes where they will be part of the family and get spoiled rotten!!!
There are no words for the feeling we get when one of our rescues gets his or her forever home. No-one can understand until they do rescue.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do mainly private adoptions from Petfinder and Adopt A Pet but also join other groups in adoption days in Sherman Oaks, the Pacific Palisades or Larchmont Village. We also make fliers if need be.

Our Adoption Process...

We start with an adoption application form, home-check and contract stating if the dog needs to be returned he/she comes back to us and NOT the shelter.

We charge $250 for dogs under the age of one and $200 over the ago of one.
