Hello, my name is Bonita.  I think I am a retriever mix and estimate I am 12-13 years old.  I came into the I.C.A.R.E. Dog Rescue fold recently after being “accidentally” discovered in Mexico.  I am currently in foster care in Aliso Viejo.  I am being treated very well during my healing process.  I have a scheduled appointment to visit my friends at the Pet Hospital in Orange shortly to get an overall health assessment.
Though I am an older dog, I really believe I am still a puppy although not as hyper as a puppy.  I am definitely a people lover and get so excited whenever anyone comes in the house or goes by my front window.  My foster family had to put a basket under the window for me to step up to actually see out the window.  My tail is usually going “90 miles” an hour whenever spoken to, but especially at feeding time. I do not chew on anything nor jump up on people.
I am potty trained and I am working on some basic commands as well as name recognition.  So far, I believe I am making excellent progress and will continue working hard.  I picked up the foster household routines quickly including when it’s time to go to bed in my gated kitchen.  I am proud to say I have not had any household accidents!! 
My foster family keeps telling me how special I am and how sweet I am.  I must admit I do have a charming disposition.  I have settled in quite nicely in a low key household with people who give me lots of love and attention.

About I.C.A.R.E. Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

I.C.A.R.E. is an all breed, no kill dog rescue. We rescue dogs at risk of being euthanized from shelters, abandoned, abused, and stray dogs. We also rescue many owner surrendered dogs; which are dogs that can no longer remain in their current homes due to financial or personal issues. I.C.A.R.E. Dog Rescue is dedicated to reducing the number of dogs that are euthanized in our shelters each and everyday. We focus on rescuing and rehabilitating them in loving foster homes until they are adopted into their permanent homes. We also focus on educating the public regarding specific breeds, rescue, and general information regarding the canine species. We are a 100% volunteer run and supported organization that cannot survive without the help of loving fosters, volunteers, and benefactors.
