Meet Sweetpea! Sweetpea was rescued from the streets of Baja along with her 6 young pups. She also had another young pup with her who was about 4-5 months old, likely a puppy from a previous litter. She was an excellent mother and did whatever she could to keep her little family safe. In fact, a Good Samaritan noticed her taking food she had found on the street to a vacant lot where she had found shelter under some bushes and trash.

Sweetpea has been living in a wonderful foster home since the end of July. Her foster family has said that Sweetpea is a total sweetheart with people and she gets along well with other dogs and cats too! She has started to play tug-of-war with her new foster sibling and she likes to carry around the tug-of-war toy.

Sweetpea is slowly coming out of her shell and would likely benefit from a home where there are fewer dogs so she can receive more individual attention. She would also benefit from a foster or adopter who can take her out for daily walks in order to help her adjust to new srroundings. We are confident that with a lot of love and attention, she will continue to become more confident and overcome her shyness.

Sweetpea would like nothing more than to find the perfect adopter who will give her the love she deserves! Could that be you? If you are interested in this gentle girl, please fill out an online adoption application. Don’t wait!

About Animal Rescuers Without Borders, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

The A.R.W.O.B. group is based in San Diego, CA and operates mostly in Mexico as well as Southern California and will come to the aid of any animal in need which crosses our path. Our belief is to do what we can in order to “Make a difference in their lives.” From experience we have observed and feel the companion animals of Mexico are in the greatest need and accordingly we focus much of our efforts in Baja, Mexico. However, we certainly extend our help to our north of the border critters by accepting relinquished family pets, exiting both dogs and cats from the shelters of San Diego and of course by working in conjunction with other animal rescue groups in the community
