My story

After 659 days in rescue we were ELATED when she was adopted! We even waited weeks to make sure that it was going to stick before announcing. The day after we announced her adoption we were told it wasn't going to work. Scarlett has lived a life the past 659 days in a strict routine as she isn't dog friendly, so she was on a crate and rotate schedule. She was out in a new home and just was given too much freedom
And change too fast and became overwhelmed. Scarlett needs a home, without kids (it had the largest negative impact on her relationship with the kids), that can take it slow. We REALLY want to avoid having to bring her back here to her previous foster to crate and rotate again. Can anyone help Scarlett??



Scarlett Josephine



Located in the Gillette WY area
Bulldog/Staffordshire Terrier/Boxer aka a tiny French Mastiff lookalike  
4 years old
Needs work with other dogs, just no ability to read social cues, very workable she's come SO far in the past year 
NO cats
No young kids. Despite being great with kids in past fosters (but when overwhelmed it was the children in her home that she directed at, so we are now saying no kids)
Loves to cuddle
Crate trained (most of the time) and working on commands
House trained
Fully vetted
45lbs



I ran across this horrible intake photo of a sweet little red bully mix where you can't even tell if it's a tongue or a growth on her face and knew she wasn't likely to make it out. She was emaciated and had sores all over her legs and feet, she was drooling and obviously scared out of her mind. Do to her emaciated state she was immediately out in the rescue only building and thus very few people saw her. Then I watched 2 videos of her and her face kept me up at night. She was desperate and scared, and you could tell she's had a horrible life with very little human kindness! I couldn't stop thinking about her, checking her posts to see if they had the update we were all hoping for. 



As the California shelter continued to fill and there were no updates and she was going to die I reached out to some people to see if we could help in any way. I needed to see that she got her miracle, her 2nd chance, because in rescue that's what we do.



We got her pulled and she had horrible kennel cough and a URI. It was also discovered that her unique smile is likely because she suffers a birth defect that results in her not growing all her teeth, which gives her the most adorable smile ever! She stayed at the vet for a while where they determined she was dog reactive. Unfortunately because she went from one stressful kennel environment to another that's not an assessment that we can trust. She had a foster who was finally able to pick her up from the vet after a couple weeks. She kept her for a few weeks. When Scarlett arrived she was still super skinny.



Scarlett's life had been horrible, during her first 3 years on this planet she had seen little to no human kindness and yet, her favorite activity is cuddling with her humans and giving out lots of love! She's got the sweetest personality which makes the idea that she likely lived in a small area full of her own feces(sores on her feat and lack of care regarding sleeping in her own mess ), hit (scars), neglected (horrible condition she was in), starved (emaciated state) and ignored before basically being left to fend for herself on the mean streets of Los Angeles is epically heartbreaking! 



Even after a year Scarlett is a work in progress and need a PATIENT and epically understanding home. She hasn't been properly socialized with other dogs and thus she doesn't understand the concept of person space and she cannot read social cues, at all. Due to this we are looking for a home for her without other dogs. We believe with work and time in the future she may be just fine with other dogs, she has made great headway in the past year, but right now that's just not something we are willing to risk. After everything she's been through she really deserves to be insanely adored!



If you're willing to open up your home and heart to this adorable little flower please contact us ASAP! We are so excited to play such an epic role in her journey to find her FURever home and we cannot wait to meet her special humans wherever they are and watch her blossom in her own home! 



$200.00 Adoption Fee 
(Which is considered a non refundable donation and being we are a 501c3 organization it is tax deductible. The fee itself is not negotiable, our vets don't negotiate and thus neither do we.) 



WE DO NOT HAVE A FACILITY ALL OUR DOGS ARE LOCATED IN FOSTER HOMES. This means there is no place for you to go in person to view our dogs. We ask that an application be filled out and we will go from there!

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

We require an adoption fee which ranges based on age of the dog or cat. We also require a completed (and obviously accepted) adoption application, and home and reference checks. We don't do this to be nosey, but because when we bring an animal into our program we make a promise to that animal that they will go to the best home for them. We are more concerned with the quality of our adoptions than the quality
