Story
6yr old Bridget lingered at the Imperial County Shelter for 5 months and after a few short days in a loving foster home, she has proven to be all her Boxer breed has to offer. Playful, Respectful, completely housetrained, joyful and fun to be around. She loves the companionship of some other dogs, as well as enjoying toys, she knows the difference between a shoe that is not hers to chew and a toy that she clearly will chew. Bridget can go from calm, chill to "let's go for a walk" in an instant. She rides well in a car, she loves the outdoors and her walks, she is a zig zagger on walks so we are working to work on that, but all in all, this girl is well behaved, respects boundaries and is a diamond in the ruff of the rough. Keep an eye out on this lovely girl, she is ready to join your family and bring you endless joy for many years to come. She's a completed application away from a chance to meet her at https://lionelslegacy.org/adopt/adoption-application/

Tyson is a very happy go lucky dog.  He was pulled from Tijuana Animal Control February  2022.  He was very emaciated and very sick.  He weighed only 33 pounds at intake with us.  He has gained more than thirty pounds while in our care.  His tail had to be amputated as he had "Happy tail."  He could not stop wagging his tail and would break the tail open and spray blood all over everything by wagging it really hard and bumping itno things.  He is an amazing boy.  He loves adults, kids, other dogs, and just about everything.  He will be a wonderful addition to any family's home! ##1328861##

Story
My journey started as a stray darting in and out of traffic on a busy street and seeking cover in the adjacent riverbed.  I could be seen at night going house to house, looking for food and especially loved the yards with dogs.  Once humanely trapped, no owner came for me so here I am looking for my forever family.  I would do best with another confident dog in the home.  Once I trust I am incredibly sweet and eager to please.  I need someone willing to be patient and love me unconditionally while I adjust to my new environment.  I LOVE dogs and am high energy when it comes to play.  I prefer women and have a deep seated fear of men but can learn to trust.  I get to enjoy outings for pack walks but don't do well "sitting" in chaotic settings.  The noises, people and activity still scare me, even a year later.  Because of my Flight Risk I cannot be left unattended in a yard, crate training is a must when you are gone, tight grip on the leash is a must on adventures and my new family must be aware of open doors and windows.  I would love to find that person who will let me learn to trust, grow into their heart and let me be their new home body where I feel safe.  To adopt: https://petstablished.com/adoption_form/37765/genericTo foster: https://petstablished.com/foster_form/37764/genericEmail: awayhomefordogs@gmail.com ##1339002##

Story
Hi , I’m Ryder but some call me RyRy. I am about 3 years old. I am a sassy girl with a lot of love to give. I am a people person, I love walks, cuddles, and belly scratches. I am full of energy and would love a family that matches my energy and loves to play. I am good around children of all ages but preferably the older ones because sometimes I don’t realize my size. I am crate and house trained. I do need some special attention and extra training but overall I’m a certified good girl. It saddens me to make this post, but unfortunately I no longer have the time or space for Ryder. I am not giving her up due to her own behavior but simply because I feel she deserves time, space, and training I am not able to give her. I want the best for her! I adopted her a year ago from San Diego Animal Shelter, I have had her for a year so by no means do I want to take her back to a shelter and potentially traumatize her.

Story
Raichu is a very affectionate girl, I think she would be a great companion to someone who only has one other large dog, or in a single dog home. She’s a quick learner and very food motivated. She can be a bit rambunctious, but overall she is well behaved. She is spayed, fully vaccinated and potty trained. She has had some professional dog training with absolute canine. Raichu can get quite jealous and needs to go to a home where you can spend lots of time with her, which I cannot give to her at this stage in my life.
