Bunkie (SM)'s Story...
Hi there, hi there! Bunkie here and at your service, yes sir-ere! Though my spirit is high energy, I'm quite the calm little fellow and my mates say I rarely ever bark. I'm a perfect apartment dog because I'm so quite and chill. I'm also very affectionate and love my pets and treats and really really want to go home with you today!

Bunkie is a lovely 9 lb. youngster who has seen a lot in life already. This little guy proved to be quite the fighter in his quest for a better life. He and his pregnant partner were rescued from underneath an abandoned house trying to live off the streets in a rough area of San Bernardino. After being rescued, Bunkie's partner gave birth to her puppies, and that is when we discovered the whole family had distemper. Poor Bunkie, as loyal as they come, helplessly watched as his pups and then his partner passed away. He never left their side. But Bunkie's spirit was strong for life and he eventually fully recovered with just a minor twitch or "tic" as the only evidence of his near death. This is one tough little guy who is kind and gentle with humans and animals alike! Bunkie has a sweet and enduring innocence about him that will capture your heart and you'll know then that it's time to take this brave little soldier home.

If you are the kind and caring human that Bunkie has been waiting his whole life for and would like to meet him at our weekly adoption event on Saturdays at the Petsmart in the Yorba Linda Savi Ranch shopping center between 1 and 5 pm, please fill out an application from our website,, and return it via email to no later than 11 AM on Fridays.

Due to the high volume of dogs and puppies in our foster homes, it is impossible to bring them all every Saturday. The only way to ensure that the dog that you are interested in will be at the adoption event is to FILL OUT AN APPLICATION. Otherwise, we cannot guarantee that the dog you are interested in will be at our adoption event. If you cannot make the time frame of our events, appointments can be made at another time and location solely at the discretion of the foster mom.

All adoption fees cover the mandatory and non-negotiable spay/neuter, rabies, microchip, necessary vaccinations, fecal testing and deworming. Adoption fees vary solely based on age and size.

Bunkie is an amazing dog and a true survivor.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bunkie (SM), a Santa Ana Manchester Terrier/Basenji dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Manchester Terrier/Basenji for sale in Santa Ana, or seeking a Manchester Terrier/Basenji dog from a breeder in Santa Ana.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Santa Ana already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Santa Ana breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Manchester Terrier/Basenji breeders who help with Manchester Terrier/Basenji rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Santa Ana paves the way for another one to be saved.
