Facts about Papaya

  • Breed: Boxer/Labrador Retriever Mix
  • Color: Red/Golden/Orange/Chestnut - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Papaya's person died and the adult kids didn't want her anymore. So she was relinquished to a city shelter.

When we saw her, she was cowering in the back of her kennel, scared out of her mind. Knowing she would never get adopted like that, we took her in.

It hasn't been easy. She is very shy but does bond quickly Once she loves you, she really loves you. Her foster parents are very patient and she is now giving them lots of cuddles and vying for attention with their other two dogs.

Papaya must go to a home with another dog. It doesn't matter male or female. But having another dog around gives her the security she needs and provides her with a mentor

She's a great pup. 4 years old and 64 pounds. To apply, please go to https://www.dawgsquad.org/adoption_application_2.html

About Our Rescue Group...

The Dawg Squad is working toward a time in Los Angeles when dogs are cared for, when all puppies find loving and generous owners. We rescue unwanted and abandoned dogs, provide them with medical care, rehabilitation and foster homes until caring, adoptive homes can be found.

“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.
