My story

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

Bella aka “Big Mamma” is the perfect couch potato dog. She was a mamma dog late in life and has earned her right to bask in the sunlight and just relax. It is apparent that she did not spend her recent years with humans but probably as a back yard breeder dog. It took Bella a little while before she learned to appreciated all the fun that a relationship with people can treats and toys. Once she trusts you Bella loves to cuddle and accept petting and also loves to get people to throw her ball. She loves toys and treats and can entertain herself very well. She is crate trained and seems to enjoy her down time with a good bone to chew. Bella has no allergies or food sensitivities. Bella is a big girl so a strong handler is key. She has no interest in sharing her home with another dog, after giving birth to all those big puppies who could blame her. Bella walks well on a leash and can be dog reactive, but easily managed with a strong leader. If you have a soft spot near the TV that needs filling, Bella is your girl.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

Potential families are asked to complete or Adoption Application before visiting our dogs. We introduce you and your family including any other dogs/cats in your family to our adoptable dogs. If the meeting is a good match we will schedule a home check to ensure that the home is a good match for the pet that you have selected. You will then be asked to complete our Adoption Agreement and to finalize the adoption there will be a processing fee to adopt a pet from us. All proceeds go directly back to help support our rescue and there are no paid employees so all fees are used for our pets waiting to be adopted.

More about this rescue

We are located in the San Diego area and pull dogs from southern California shelters and we assist families in rehoming their pets so that they don't have to go to a shelter.

I started doing rescue because I couldn't stand to see adoptable dogs being euthanized due to lack of an immediate home. I knew that I could find them good homes.
