Gruffy is a happy, healthy 3 year old lhaso Apso mix looking for his new home. Gruffy's favorite thing to do is go for a walk. He never gets tired of going for a walk. Gruffy is kind of a loner. he prefers to be by himself verses following you around the house. He does well with his obedience commands, sit, lay, and stay. Gruffy hopes his new family will have patience with him as he is terrified to be picked up. He has been working hard to get past his fears but he isn't there yet.  Gruffy would do best in a home with a yard so he can work off his energy so he can continue to work on his fear of being held. He also would not do well with small children under 13.

Come meet our dogs Saturdays and Sundays at Petsmart in Costa Mesa from 11:30-2:30. All A Home 4 Ever Rescue dogs receive a wellness exam by our veterinarian and are up to date with vaccinations. They are spayed or neutered and microchipped before they go to their adoptive families.


About A Home 4 Ever

About Our Rescue Group...

Our dogs are rescued from what is called "death row" at the city and county shelters, from a life abandoned on the streets, or from other situations of neglect and cruelty. While in our care they receive love, rehabilitation and medical care, if needed, and grooming. Since we are a small group, we are always in need of donations of any kind.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our adoption events are various locations in Orange County on the weekends. We also can make special arrangements during the week when it is impossible for someone to come on the weekends. Our goal is to pair up good pet parents with loving dogs in need.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process starts with an application followed by an interview. If all goes well we will proceed with a home visit. At the time of the home visit we will bring the dog with us. If the home is safe, you will complete the adoption contract, pay the adoption fee that is normally $250 to $350 and we will leave your new family member with you at that time. The entire process takes only a couple of days. or less.
