My story

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

Playful, high energy, and loves to give kisses to the humans he trusts, that's our Archie! 2 and a half years old, this Doberman Pinscher/Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler/Kelpie mix is housetrained, gets along with other dogs after a proper intro, and is good with children over 12. Archie does not understand the fuss about cats and prefers to avoid them. Currently in Anaheim, CA, Archie needs a foster, or better yet, a Furever home! As with many of our doggos, Archie didn't have the best start - he was so scared, very dirty, and under socialized. He still is a bit anxious when meeting new people and it takes a minute for him to trust. We are pretty sure that he doesn't know he is really 75 pounds of love! He isn't the right dog for everyone...but maybe he is for you. Are you calm? Confident? Consistent? Have a solid routine? Patient? If so, you are pawesome and need to apply today! P.S. Archie is our head trainer's favorite boy here.February 26, 2024, 2:25 am

Their adoption process


Submit Application

To see all of our pups up for adoption, go here:



Once you see a dog you are interested in, fill out an application here:


Meet the Pet

Someone will call or email you for a phone interview within 24-48 hours, once you have submitted the application.


Home Check

We will schedule the home check once you have been approved. This may be done virtually.

Additional adoption info

All of our animals come fully vaccinated and spayed or neutered (if old enough), and microchipped. Puppies and kittens will be spayed/neutered and have all shots when they are old enough. There is an Adoption application, a quick phone interview to make sure it is a good fit, a meet and greet with the dog, then a home check, and an adoption contract. We ask for a $400 donation for adult dogs, and $500 for puppies at the time of adoption so that we can save other dogs from the shelter. The first step is to fill out an app here:

More about this rescue

Dogs are man's best friend, but it is not always the other way around. The Little Red Dog was founded in memory of a little red American Pit Bull Terrier who did not make it. If you are familiar with the Michael Vick dog fighting case chronicled in The Lost Dogs: Michael Vick's Dogs and Their Tale of Rescue and Redemption. The Little Red Dog was brutally beaten to death by Vick and his cronies because she didn't want to fight.

The Little Red Dog rescues dogs; red, blue, tan, white, brown, black and all colors in between. We do not discriminate against ANY breed; that's because we are a real rescue, and we will help as many animals as we can. Our primary goal is to get them into loving homes. Our hope that some day all of them make it, but most of all, we will never forget the Little Red Dog and many others who did not.
