Elsa's mom had no home and she had 8 puppies to take care of in the desert. Someone noticed this mom walking with puppies and called our rescue.
Elsa is a great dog. She plays well with other dogs of all sizes. She lived in a foster home with chickens and did not bother them. She played well with her chihuahua foster siblings. She will be spayed at 6 months age, but is available for foster-to-adopt placement. (You foster her until we finalize the adoption after her spay procedure.)

About Cherished K-9 All Breed Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Big or small we love them all!

Our mission is to rescue and re-home neglected, abused and abandoned dogs.

We are a small rescue that picks up dogs off the streets and helps them find their homes or helps them find new homes.

We also help find homes for dogs that have been relinquished by their owners. In addition, we pull last-chance dogs from our local animal shelter.

Our goal is to assist the rescue community in our area in decreasing the euthanasia rate at the shelter.

Our dogs live in foster homes while waiting to be adopted. Our fosters love and care for them as if they are their own dogs.

We cannot do what we do without your help! Foster, Adopt or Donate today!

If you are interested in fostering or adopting one of our dogs, please email us at

Our Adoption Process...

After filling our our required Adoption Application, we will schedule a home visit. The home visit is to make sure our dog gets along with any existing pets in the home. We also check for obvious hazards and make sure the yard is secure.

If everything checks out OK, the next step is the Adoption Application, which finalizes the adoption. There is an adoption fee for each dog. (All dogs are spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations and micro-chipped.)

After the adoption is complete, there are follow-up wellness checks to make sure everything is working out for the adopters and the adopted dog.

At any time after the adoption is finalized, if the adopter decides to get rid of the dog, it must be returned to Cherished K-9 All Breed Rescue.
