Story
Meet Harley! This beautiful boy is an approximately 6 year old, Bichon that is about 20lbs. Harley was surrendered to us when his owners moved and did not want to take him along. It's ok because it is their loss and our gain! We found out that Harley was basically kept inside a mobile home 24 hours of the day while his owner was at work 12-14 hours. He didn't receive any socialization and was reprimanded for going potty in the house. We brought him into our foundation and into one of our amazing foster homes that has other dogs and a full family of people to see how he did. We can see that he can be a bit dominant with other dogs at first, but with correction which he takes well, he is learning day by day how to socialize properly. He is great with people! We do want him in an adult only home as he is a bit strong. Harley loves to play ball (small Kong balls are his favorite!) and will entertain himself with one or will play with you by bringing the ball to you and having you throw it. Harley's ideal home would be with an owner who is not gone long hours during the day and will take him for a few walks which he loves. He is great on leash! He's a good eater, but his skin was left by his prior owner...completely infested with fleas which caused allergies, so an owner that will incorporate good home cooking and supplements into his meals, is exactly what he needs! Harley is a bit clumsy in the car, but does love to sit by your side. He will need practice with that. Harley definitely can be an only dog with an owner who will spend time with him or he could be adopted with one other dog in the home that is not dominant or he could be adopted with his buddy Tali, a female 2 year old, 17lb, Maltese/Terrier mix. A home with a yard is exactly what Harley needs as he loves sunbathing and helps with his potty training into a new home. Harley was not treated well in his prior home, so we want to make sure he gets the best forever family out there! Harley is microchipped, vaccinated, and neutered. We only adopt in the Greater Los Angeles areas as an in person meet/greet, home check, and trial period are required. Please contact us at: gina@theforgottendog.org or 310-990-2020

JENNY--Help needed JENNY is in need of sponsorship in our sponsorship program to pay for the remainder of her extensive veterinary costs. We are raising funds for all of her diagnostic procedures--Xrays, Ultrasounds, CBC, Urinalysis--for her extensive dental work, and extraction and suturing of six very bad removed teeth, and for her bladder stone removal surgery, JENNY is a Maltipoo, a Maltese/Poodle cross. Jenny is 7 years old and weighs about 15 pounds. She is a cream and white color, and she is also hypoallergenic! JENNY is very intelligent and inquisitive. She is housetrained, sweet, gentle, playful, loving, affectionate, a lot of fun to be with, and not destructive. Dogs like JENNY also require regular ongoing grooming maintenance to prevent dangerous matts and tangles in the fur which can cause serious skin damage.
