Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Zorro is such a sweet boy!! Unfortunately his owner had to surrender him to TLC K9 Rescue because he got very sick and just couldn't take care of him anymore. Zorro is a sweet pure breed 1 ½ yr old Basenji who is super playful, loving, affectionate, and gives lots of kisses too. But as most Basenji's he can be high-spirited, curious, charming and loves to clown around. At times he can also be aloof, independent and self-contained by relaxing with a yummy bully stick. He typically doesn't like being left alone for long periods of time, so if you work at home he'll be right at your feet or laying in his kennel. Zorro adores people, older considerate children and likes to play with other friendly dogs. He is crate, potty and leash trained. He's a smart boy who has learned several commands immediately. He loves his walks, but he must be kept on leash at all times!!! We are looking for an active and experienced family with the breed and if you have another young dog for Zorro to play with then that would definitely be a plus. If you live in the San Diego County have a home with a yard and a 6-foot fence and would like to adopt Zorro please complete our adoption application at tlck9rescue.orgVisit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.June 14, 2024, 5:45 pm

Story
Bruce is a fun, energetic and charming 7 yr. old, 22 lb. Basenji/Terrier Mix who loves a game of fetch and squeaky toys. He already knows sit, stay, crawl, and come. He is very smart and easy to train when motivated by a treat. Bruce is outgoing and friendly with people, except when he forgets that it isn't his job to guard the home from strangers. He is working with a trainer on that issue and making great progress. He is a volunteer favorite because of his quirky, fun personality. He would do best as the only dog in a fairly quiet adult home with dog experience. Bruce was adopted 3 yrs ago and brought back due to an unexpected change in his family's living situation. He would be very grateful for a second chance. Bruce's Adoption fee is $300 and includes neuter, microchip and current vaccinations.

Story
Peoria is a lovely medium sized girl with thin legs, a lean build and ears that stick up. Your guess is as good as ours as to her breed mix but she likely has several breeds mixed within her including possibly Terrier and Basenji. She is a young girl at about 2 years old but was a great mama to her five adorable puppies. She is friendly, sweet, and easy on leash. If you think you are ready to add to your family by adopting Peoria, then fill out an adoption questionnaire on our website today! We recommend completing the questionnaire and connecting with an adoption coach before looking for a dog or puppy you'd like to adopt. If you're already approved to adopt or if you've adopted from Labs and More before, connect with your adoption coach for the next steps. Your interest in adopting a rescued dog or puppy from Labs and More Rescue is appreciated! Please find our adoption information at www.labsandmore.org. Your adoption donation provides funding for Labs and More, a nonprofit organization which is supported solely by Volunteers and funded by donations. Good news is your adoption donation can be considered tax deductible. So much care is provided to your new dog prior to the adoption, including: spay and neuter, microchip, veterinarian visit(s), vaccinations, and other medical care as needed. Many of the dogs we rescue require extensive surgeries and care prior to adoption. Please understand we are unable to predict future behavior or medical needs of your adopted dog. We provide no guarantees regarding behavior, breed, or age of the dogs. Thank you for rescuing.

Story
Meet Penny! She originally transferred to us a young pup from the Chula Vista Animal Care Facility in 2018. Adopted in 2018, Penny returned to us in July of this year. She was originally listed as a Labrador/Boxer mix pup, but seeing her full adult size and markings, we now have her listed as a Basenji mix. Penny's previous home was not experienced with her anxiety which compounded over the years and became fear-based reactivity. We recommend reviewing her origin & progress stories below: Penny's Return: https://www.facebook.com/heartofgoldsshelter/posts/pfbid02whoN43cDPKKKExEqBHq8kNDkwHXBJbQxJfXndK3EhSgGXJ5puaaSwnpfwezrsCRFl Penny's Progress: https://www.facebook.com/heartofgoldsshelter/posts/pfbid02QEToHtcCTP6NbKebvtiZs3yPU3yPAyDeFVDvthiYo8fxSMV9SxP4qRALxSXyDm94l Penny's most recent update: https://www.facebook.com/heartofgoldsshelter/posts/pfbid02F4tFELzbyTDVdd4mjFi6VAHEek4hCMMTZpzY5B3p7oNsMDboHESyawFPyWrQN63Ul Behavioral considerations: With dedication to her training with CRT K9 Dog Training in a foster home setting and being surrounded by those experienced with the nuances of dog behavior, Penny is thriving and enjoys her foster home filled with 4 dogs, another foster dog (Tank), and 3 cats. While there are multiple management techniques in place that help her peacefully co-exist in a multi-animal home, Penny will do best in a home that has either: -No pets -An owner with extensive experience with safely managing a multi-dog (any size) or multi-animal household -An owner experienced with reactive dogs Penny develops a heavy attachment to those she loves. She adores her foster mom and with love, patience, and a structured setting, she will also look at her future mom/dad as though you are her sun, her moon, and all her stars. A loyal gal indeed! We want her to succeed in this second chance at adoption and are looking for an adopter that is not just excited about her adorable face and kissable cheeks but has the experience and means to care for a dog that isn't looking for the mental overstimulation that dog parks provide. Penny prefers to get her exercise with her people and dogs she has built trust with, and who are respectful of her boundaries. We as humans can definitely empathize with that! While Penny does enjoy cuddle time, down time, and lots of kisses, she is quite the track star and loves to sprint, explore, and fetch during play time! A home what will keep her active in a safe & controlled environment is where she will thrive! We will send 3 training sessions with CRT K9 Dog Training to her future home, to give Penny her best foot forward in a new environment. A trainer coming directly to an adopter's home for these sessions will ensure that she thrives and is helped along through another life change. Regarding COVID-19 and other contagious illnesses: Please reschedule any visits if you are sick.

Story
Jackie came in originally because she had been ran over by a car and needed a safe place to heal for a few months while her leg and hip were mending. When a dog comes in in her condition they go on bed rest where they can just focus on catching up on sleep, a soft bed, and plenty of food. Within a month we noticed she was starting to get a little on the heavier side so we put her on a diet. But we quickly realize that she was getting larger and it was nothing to do with how much food she was eating. She was pregnant! The accident must have happened shortly after she conceived. But in these situations because of all the trauma and surgeries that she had been through the puppies with more than likely be still born. But she was so far along already there was nothing we can do but watch and wait. In the middle of the night she gave birth to six perfectly healthy babies! She weaned them at only one month and decided she was done dealing with them a few weeks later. She was not cut out to be a mom but rather wanted to live her life freely and with no responsibilities. So we put her in a group of other like-minded dogs and she flourished! She loves playing and investigating everything! She is very intelligent and absolutely adores snuggles!
