Facts about Arnold

  • Breed: Australian Shepherd/Collie Mix
  • Color: Black - With Brown, Red, Golden, Orange Or Chestnut
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Arnold was huddled in the back of a kennel run at the Lancaster shelter. He couldn't walk - he was emaciated - and he was totally shut down.

We don't use the term "it takes a village" lightly. Getting Arnold out of the shelter literally took a coordinated effort between 2 rescue groups (ours included) and 2 individual rescuers. It was crazy but we needed to give this guy a chance.

Arnold has an autoimmune issue which had caused swollen joints, his weird skin issues and flat feet. On top of all that, at some point his tail had been broken. He was a disaster and we didn't really think he was going to thrive.

HE FOOLED US! With meds, good food, a warm bed and lots of attention, Arnold is beating his disease. He can walk - in fact he can climb stairs, jump on a couch and he does his best to run. He has gained 10 pounds and his fur is soft and shiny.

And best of all, this youngster is a friendly, happy, goofy boy who is going to make some family amazingly happy.

Arnold will be neutered and his tail will be fixed once we are sure we have his disease in hand.

Think these pictures look bad? You should have seen him when we first got him.

Give him a chance. You won't regret it

“TheAdopt-A-Pet system requires that we choose a predominant breed or breed mix for our dogs. Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.”

Our Adoption Process...

If you find an animal that you are interested in, we do require that you fill out an adoption application. A home check will be done and we ask that all members of the family, animal and human, be present when we bring the new animal to your home. An adoption contract is then signed and a minimum donation is requested. Adoption donation is $300

Please note filling out an application does not guarantee an adoption. Please note we only adopt to Southern California. No out of state adoptions.
