My story

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

Bugsy is a great buddy to have around. He is about 18 lbs and around 6- 7 years old. He enjoys going on walks and loves to wander around in the yard in his wheels or scooting along, play with his toys, happy all snuggled up with his people, and just hanging around.

Bugsy loves the toys at his foster home and doesn’t mind sharing them. He is the sweetest and most loving guy you will ever meet. He has been around all sizes and breeds of dogs and gets along great with them

He enjoys the company of other dogs but he would be just as happy to be an only dog if his person was around most of the time to keep him company. If not then he needs a canine companion for company. Bugsy is very affectionate but doesn’t require a ton of attention to be content.  He is pretty low-maintenance and will happily follow your lead.

Bugsy doesn’t use his back legs but do not be fooled since he is still an active guy and can go many places with his wheels or rear harness.

He is very good around young kids and lives with one now. Bugsy is exceptionally loving and eager to please. He knows what he is being told and if you are looking for a smarty to be part of your family he is the guy. He will bring lots of warmth and terrier-silliness to your home. Give him a chance and he will steal your heart.

Bugsy also needs a new foster home if not adopted.
He is now being fostered in Belmont, CA and his adoption fee is $275.

Arrangements to meet our dogs occur after an application has been received.

Additional adoption info

The first step to adopting is to complete the Adoption Application and submit it to the DogZone Rescue. You will have to ask for one by writing to us at

You will be contacted right away by a representative once we receive it. Our application process includes an adopter and your vet, if you already have animals and an interview on the phone with your adoption coordinator. We require a home visit to ensure the environment is safe for the dog.
It usually takes about 2 -3 weeks from the time we receive the application for your dog to come home to you.

Our policy is to find the best home for each dog, where it will thrive in the environment of its new forever home. Although we work the applications on a first-come, first-served policy, it doesn't necessarily mean that the first application is the perfect fit. If the dog you applied for is not a good match for your home, we will make sure to work closely with you and your family to find which one of our precious dogs will be a great fit for your lifestyle. You can be assured that we do not misrepresent our dogs and we are absolutely honest when we tell you about our dogs.

Our adoption fee varies depending on the dog's breed and age. The range is $275- $300. Senior-to-senior program: On dogs 10 years old and older we work on a case-by-case basis and will reduce fees where we can. We do offer training support with all our adoptions; just contact us if you need help. The dogs are nurtured in foster homes and given basic training and treated for any injuries or illnesses that we are aware of.

Go meet their pets

We do not have an adoption center, we occasionally are able to take some dogs to events which we will post here. All our dogs are kept in private foster homes and are seen by appointment only. Thank you so much for wanting to adopt.

More about this rescue

DogZone Rescue is a group of individuals who are dedicated to ending the pet overpopulation and senseless killing of adoptable dogs. Our foster dogs come from shelters throughout California; we also take in strays off the streets and owner surrenders. We work closely with private Foster homes that are critical to continue our mission to save these precious animals.

We are all unpaid volunteers, and 100% of the adoption fees go towards caring for our rescued dogs. It is our mission to rescue and provide safe haven to as many abused, abandoned, and unwanted dogs as we have room for. These dogs would otherwise die in kill shelters, on the streets, or meet any number of horrible ends that befall the unwanted. We don't discriminate; we save dogs, regardless of their age or condition.

Prior to every adoption, all of our dogs will be spayed/neutered, current on all vaccines, rabies, and microchipped. We rescue, nurture and place Senior Dogs & Special Needs Dogs, along with the young and healthy. Here you will find a variety of breeds and ages.

We are also always looking for dedicated volunteers that would like to help. In addition to foster homes, we always can use help with transports in your area and home visits. If you are able to dedicate a few hours each week, we would be happy to have you join our team.

Complete Vetting is provided to our foster dogs including Microchip, up to date on Vaccines, Wellness exam, Spay or Neuter. We have a network of knowledgeable people who have been in rescue for many years who can guide you as you help save a life. While in foster care we learn their personalities and temperaments as well as work with them on crate training, house training and basic house manners. Then we help our adopters while the dog settles in.
