My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

This little cutie is Junebug and she has come a very long way but she still requires a very special home. She appeals to many people because she's quite small, often confused for a puppy. She is 1-2 years old and landed in the animal shelter in very rough shape. She had horrible mange and she was so terrified of people that she couldn't be handled. She would lash out, trying to bite and often peeing herself. We have spent many months working with Junebug to help her medically and behaviorally. She can now walk on a leash and she will allow as well as give back affection. However, Junebug still panics, especially if approached by anyone other than her handler. She tries to get away and she still has a tendency to be mouthy. It is difficult to describe because she doesn't seem to be "biting" with intent to harm but she will put her mouth on your skin when she's scared. She has never hurt anyone that has worked with her but she will need an experienced, patient and dedicated owner to continue working with her and will definitely benefit from someone willing to hire a trainer to help the transition. Junebug has been good with other dogs but can be vocal when she plays.

Additional adoption info

We ask that you bring the whole family (including the four legged) so we can best match you with the right dog. Once you have found your new companion we will have you fill out a one page adoption agreement. All dogs go home spayed or neutered, vaccinated, micro-chipped, with a collar, and ID tag.
Our donations for dogs may vary depending on gender, age, breed and medical needs. Generally our male Dobermans are $250-300 with possible flexibility for seniors. Our female Dobermans are generally a $350 donation, due to the fact that it is more difficult for us to get spay appointments and therefore, we are paying more for those surgeries at other vet clinics. We have to ask more just to make ends meet for now. Little dogs and non-Dobermans are still generally a $200 donation.

Go meet their pets

We are located on a small ranch nestled in the orchards of Fillmore, ca. We are open every saturday from 11:00am-3:00pm for open house adoptions as long as you have an approved application. We have to keep visitors to a minimum due to the pandemic. We can arrange weekday or sunday visits by appointment as well.

More about this rescue

We are a non-profit, no-kill rescue/sanctuary specializing in dobermans but also rescuing small dogs. Most of our dogs come from animal shelters before they are euthanized and are given a second chance at a new home.
