My story

We’d like to shine a light on a couple of adult large breed dogs dear to us with another small, local rescue Boxers Mutts & Wiggle Butts Rescue Please help share their dogs, give them a follow, and show them some of the amazing support you show us.❤️🐾❤️

First, we have Sookie! We first learned of Sookie 8 months ago. A property owner saw her and another dog thrown out of a pickup truck abandoned in the orchards. The man admitted to shooting at her several times. She was skin and bones when found. Unable to take her in ourselves, we offered to sponsor her food during her time in rescue. At the time we had donations from The Honest Kitchen and that was the best food to help her to gain weight and get back to being healthy.

@boxersmuttsnwigglebuttsrescue have done an amazing job getting Sookie healthy and happy again. Sookie is a boxer, 3.5 years old. She LOVES belly rubs but she’s no couch potato, she’d prefer being your running buddy. She knows sit, wait, come, crate and potty trained. She’s great with kids and is gentle with toys. Reach out to her rescue to learn more! 🐾❤️

Get to know Sookie and we are sure she will win your heart. Here is a little bit about her:


* LOVES people, adults and kids



* very high energy


* needs to be the only dog. Not dog/cat friendly * knows sit


* knows wait


* comes when called


* crate trained


* is soft with toys and learning fetch


* Loooves belly rubs

More about this rescue

Mutts and Runts Rescue was founded in 2017 after seeing the numerous strays, neglected and often abused animals in Bakersfield. Being a transplant, Brandi Reed was taken by surprise of the overpopulation of dogs and knew she needed to do something. In her first year, 100 dogs were placed into loving homes. Our rescue dogs typically consist of strays and severe medical cases. With limited fosters and volunteers, our long term goals are to improve our community outreach and financially assist other rescues when they take in cases we aren't able to physically assist. Mutts and Runts has extended to serve Reno, Nevada. Reno, having a large dog friendly community, has the opposite problem of Bakersfield- they don’t have enough dogs for people willing to adopt. Together, we’re able to help more dogs get their happy ending with loving families, additional support of fosters, volunteers, fundraising, and access to a wonderful rehab facility.
