  • Age: Puppy
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less

Please: DO NOT CALL ABOUT THIS PUPPY. If this listing is still posted then we are still accepting application for him/her. The best match will be selected and contacted to confirm an appointment. We do not do out-of-state adoptions for puppies and we cannot hold puppies; please submit your application when you are ready to adopt.

Giovanna was rescued while trailing after her mom (Renata, also posted) and siblings in a park in San Bernardino. Their rescuer was unable to find their owners and did not want to attempt to rehome them by themselves so they surrendered the family to us. She is three months old and weighs about 6 pounds, her mom weighs 20 pounds. Her adoption fee is $495 which covers the cost of her spay, rabies vaccine, 4 sets of distemper/parvo vaccines, fecal testing, deworming, microchip and microchip registration. If you are interested in adopting please read the following paragraphs which detail the adoption process, and instructions on completing the adoption application and information about adopting a puppy. If you are interested in meeting more than one puppy prior to adopting, please list your first and second pick so that we can efficiently coordinate with other applicants. Upon receipt and approval of your adoption application we will coordinate with you to meet the pups you are interested in during our weekly adoption event at the Petsmart of Yorba Linda.

If you are interested in meeting this dog at our weekly adoption event on Saturdays at the Petsmart in Yorba Linda, CA (5521 Mirage St.) between 1-5 PM, please fill out an application from our website, poochmatch.com, and return it via email to poochmatch@hotmail.com no later than 11 AM on Fridays. Due to the high volume of dogs and puppies in our foster homes, it is impossible to bring them all every Saturday. The only way to ensure that the dog that you are interested in will be at the adoption event is to FILL OUT AN APPLICATION AND BE APPROVED FOR ADOPTION. Otherwise, we cannot guarantee that the dog you are interested in will be at our adoption event. If you cannot make the time frame of our events, appointments can be made at another time and location solely at the discretion of the foster parent.

Puppies adoption fees range from $325 to $495 and always include the mandatory and non-negotiable Spay/Neuter, 4 sets of distemper/parvo vaccinations, Rabies and microchip at 4 months when altered, 2 de wormings, fecal testing and medication related to worms, or parasites (coccida/giardia).

Puppies are not house-trained although they may have begun crate-training and/or potty pad training in their foster home, depending on their age. House-training is a process that will need to be completed by their adopter. Puppies, if left unsupervised and not redirected will develop negative behaviors such as using the restroom in the wrong place, chewing, barking, whining, etc. Please be sure to do research on raising a puppy and be sure that you are prepared to do so. This is a great article from 3LostDogs that explains the trials and tribulations of puppyhood: http://3lostdogs.com/things-wish-everyone-knew-before-they-get-dog-2/

About Poochmatch

About Our Rescue Group...

I became involved in animal rescue because of the overwhelming number of stray animals I observe in less affluent areas of Southern California. I do what I do because I enjoy connecting all the dots - full circle - in terms of rescuing dogs, getting them cleaned up, treated medically and then adopted.

Poochmatch is a small rescue group with half-a dozen volunteers. Since our founding in 2006, we have done over 2,500 dog adoptions. We are on track to do over 300 in 2017.

We do not have a secretary - we are completely volunteer-based and so we respond to emails, calls and voicemails as quickly as possible. We'd love to have more assistance. We need help administratively from individuals with computers, digital cameras and marketing skills. We also need volunteers for our Saturday events, individuals 18 years or older, to help walk our dogs, maintain clean crates and provide them with fresh water for them. Please note we do not accept volunteers who treat our events as a hang-out and are generally distracted while tending the dogs - that is a disaster waiting to happen. We also do not accept volunteers who treat the event as a petting zoo and "hog" dogs. While we do appreciate and encourage that our volunteers interact with our dogs it is our one day a week to find them a forever home and we also want potential adopters to be able to interact with them. If you are interested in adopting, please send us an email at poochmatch@hotmail.com to make sure that we will be holding an event on the Saturday you are interested in volunteering. We could really use dedicated volunteers too! Please see http://poochmatch.com/volunteer.html for more information.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Adoption events are generally held every Saturday at Petsmart in Yorba Linda (Savi Ranch) 5521 Mirage Street from 1-5 PM. While we do accept walk-up applications please understand that we do give preference to those who have already completed the adoption application and have been approved prior to the event. To confirm we will be holding an adoption event, call Lydia at 714-241-9765.

Our Adoption Process...

We do not have a facility. Our dogs are in foster homes with volunteers.

We do not do out-of-state adoptions for puppies. We would only consider out-of-state adoptions for adult dogs that prove hard-to-place locally. We do not hold dogs, please submit your application when you are ready to adopt.

All prospective adopters must complete and adoption application. Upon receipt AND approval (usually within 72 hours), a mutually agreeable appointment date, time and place will be scheduled. Prospective adopters must be receptive to a home check, sign an adoption contract and provide an adoption fee. The adoption fee for young or adult dogs is generally $225 - $295. The adoption fee for puppies varies from $325 to $475. The adoption fee always includes the cost of spay/neuter, microchip, microchip registration, deworming, fecal testing and all core vaccinations: rabies vaccine and 2 sets of distemper/parvo for an adult dog and 4 sets for a puppy.

All of our dogs are vetted prior to becoming adoptable - although not everything is always revealed in the initial health check. We do request that if one of our dogs becomes ill shortly after being adopted that their adopter contacts us ASAP so that we can assist them.
