My story

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.

Apprx 6-7 year old White Knight lived with a group of 15 other dogs in the desert for several years after their owner died. A good samaritan visited the pack several times a week to make sure they had food, water, and shelter, and little by little White Knight and a few others learned to trust him. During the summer of 2021, we all hatched a plan to get White Knight, his buddy Old Man, and Persephone out of there.

Since then, White Knight and Old Man have been living with trainer Doug Price to learn how to relax, enjoy life, and trust humans. They will always be a bit shy, but White Knight has shown so much progress! And he loves to play with other dogs, even though he shakes a bit at first (see his videos). 

So we are hoping to find White Knight a home! Someone with love, time and patience to give him to allow him to settle in at his own pace. Adopting White Knight will also open up room to help another desert dog, so please consider adopting this special guy!

His details:
•Age approx 6-7
• Aussie shepard mix
• Loves dogs of all sizes, prefers more submissive, but confident dogs. Will do best with 1 or more dogs
• crate trained, not house trained
• tolerates being on leash
• nervous around people, likes having his ears scratched, has never shown aggression. He will let my 4 yo granddaughter pet him.
• he wants to trust people and does have a happy side, especially at feeding times.

More about this rescue

Cause for SB Paws is a 501(c)(3) non-profit animal rescue organization dedicated to helping lost, abandoned, abused and homeless dogs from the streets and our city and county shelters in the San Bernardino area. Our goal is to rehome our rescued babies into pet-loving communities that will cherish these formerly forgotten souls.

We are a dedicated team of San Bernardino residents who grew frustrated with the substandard treatment of animals in our community and shelters. We foster all of the dogs we rescue so they can de-stress from their time on the streets or in the shelter system and get them used to the love and trust of being an inside companion animal living in a loving home. We also fully vet our dogs and treat any known issues, including dental, hernia repair, etc.
