TJ the Toy Hoarder is an 8 pound, 6 year old male Chihuahua who came to us from the Orange County shelter, where he arrived as a scared stray pup from the streets of Lake Forest. TJ likes his room at the center, particularly when he has a roommate. TJ will warm up to you, sit in your lap, and give you kisses if you go slowly. He loves his toys - especially squeaky ones. TJ seems to like calm, friendly small dogs. He enjoys his walks. TJ would be happy as an only dog or with a calm companion, with lots of attention...and toys. TJ is on a special diet and medication for prevention of digestive issues. Apply to meet TJ at adoptocpets.org/adopt.

Story
Silly, goofy, confident, lap dog, loves balls/toys, and fully housetrained - that is how Foster Mom describes me. Personally, I like the lap dog part quite a bit. I'm Que, around 9 years old, and a perfect 16 pounds of snuggly goodness. My foster mom recently said that I am 'such a sweetheart. Has lots of energy, loves to greet you at the door and is so happy you are home. Loves his toys to play with on his own or with you.' Awwww - shucks. I am so lucky. I live with her pooches and love my canine friends, too. We get along great. New people can cause some anxiety - when you are small, it's hard to know if people are friend or foe, you know? But, once I know you? I love you. It's really that simple. A while ago, I lost my human family and ended up in the shelter. I had dental issues (all clear now!), skin issues (all clear now!), hadn't been neutered (all gone now!), and was so grumpy that the vet couldn't even examine me (much better now!). Basically? My prior owners didn't take good care of me. TLRD fixed all of that and now I am like a different dog. There is only one thing that could be better in my life...you.My foster mom says that I am an excellent dog for someone who works from home or is just a homebody in general. I love to be around my people and am very snuggly without being needy. Please apply today so that you can learn what a love bug I am!May 25, 2024, 2:00 pm

Story
Need a dog that gets along with dogs, cats, humans - pretty much everyone and everything - and also walks well on leash and loves to snuggle? That's me, Champ! I’m 13.5 lbs. and 14 years old, and my favorite things are walks, curling up in a blanket next to you on the couch, and naps. I am still figuring out toys but when I am really excited, I like to play with toys that do not have loud squeaks. On walks, I am calm and serene - not at all bothered by what might be going on outside (dogs, bikes, other people, etc.), as befits my age. I am appropriately wary of certain loud sounds and of new places; when it is dark it's harder for me to see. My foster says I'm the sweetest boy ever and would be a great addition to your family.May 25, 2024, 2:00 pm

Not good with kids, Not good with dogs, Not good with cats, House-trained, Spayed or Neutered,
Story
Bugbear is a wonderful, sassy old girl who loves to be loved by her people. My husband and I always sing “I want to be where the people are” to her because she just wants to couch potato in the same room as us. We love her. We adopted her as a one-eyed adult baby dog 4 years ago. Unfortunately, she has not been able to adjust well since we had our son, and his quickly entering his toddler phase is only exacerbating the situation. We want to find a new home for her quickly and hope it can be better for her than here. She would be a wonderful fit for adults without kids who want a little dog to love on and spoil. She’s really wonderful, and sweet, just kind of a sour patch kid. In general, a very low maintenance dog as long as she can sit in the same room as you. Great when she’s left at home alone as well, very good at going potty outside and waiting for us to come home.

Story
Hi - my name is Duey! I am four-year-old male Chihuahua mix. According to my DNA test, I'm 57% Chihuahua, 14% Miniature Pinscher, 8% Shih Tzu, 5% Maltese, 5% Cocker Spaniel, 4% Bichon Frise, 3% Toy Poodle, 2% Pomeranian, and 2% Chinese Shar-Pei. According to my foster family, I am 100% adorable and sweet.    I was found abandoned as a puppy in a desert town in Arizona with three of my siblings. They actually had to get a specialist to trap us and it took multiple times to catch us because we were smart and, honestly, pretty scared of humans after being so alone like that. While I still take time to warm up to new people, I want their attention and especially, walks!!! I’m a really sweet and loving dog once you let me get to know you. I am also a one-of-a-kind silly boy with lots of leaps, skips, funny sounding barks (only when I’m super happy— I’m not a big barker), and doggie dances that show you how happy I am! I am also a great friend to other friendly dogs of all sizes and ages (and friendly with bunnies too, so probably would be fine with cats)! I’d actually do best in a home with another well-socialized and confident companion dog (or two or three!) because that is the fastest way to get me to trust the humans in the house and learn all the house rules — I copy the dogs!   So, if you are willing to be patient with me to reap the huge rewards of watching me come out of my shell to feel safe and loved in your home as my forever family -- which means you will get to see my sweet silliness and it will make you laugh -- then you should pick me! If you are interested in adopting, please visit the I.C.A.R.E. Dog Rescue website and complete an adoption application: www.icaredogrescue.org/ready-to-adopt Adoption fee includes: spay/neuter • shots up to date • micro-chip • fecal and vet check Breeds are not guaranteed.

Story
Hey there, I'm Tom Cruise! Yep, just like the famous actor—I may be short, but I do my own stunts and exude inexplicable confidence. Some say I'm getting up there in age, but I beg to differ—age is just a number, right? I'd say my number is maybe 12, but who's counting? Despite my past pampering, my owner suddenly disappeared from my life, leaving me to navigate the world on my own. But hey, I'm making the best of it and working hard to fit in wherever I can. I'm quick, athletic, and maybe just a tad sneaky. With great eyesight and hearing, I'm always ready for action. While I'm cool with other dogs, I prefer to be myself or maybe the only pup in the place. I'm perfectly content cuddling up on your lap, next to you, or even around your neck—wherever you'll have me! While I love all people, I have a soft spot for older, active folks who appreciate just how awesome I am. I've got a lot to offer and I'm ready for my comfy second act. So what do you say? Ready to pick me and fill out that application today? Let's make it happen! If you are interested in adopting, please visit the I.C.A.R.E. Dog Rescue website and complete an adoption application: www.icaredogrescue.org/ready-to-adopt Adoption fee includes: spay/neuter • shots up to date • micro-chip • fecal and vet check Breeds and age are not guaranteed.

Beauty has arrived and her name is Bertha Bear, aka BB!  Sweet BB is a 10-year-old blind Pomeranian mix who weighs approximately 20 pounds and has the softest most plush coat you can imagine!  Although she’s blind, it doesn’t keep her from living her very best life.  BB is the most perfect, well-mannered companion anyone could possibly hope for!  She does great with all dogs, children and people alike.  She is full of life and loves to roll around and wait for belly rubs to begin. Her perfect afternoon would be with her human in a snuggle position after a short walk.  BB is potty trained, never barks and has the most peaceful spirit.  Her perfect forever home will be with a family or individual who has plenty of time to spend with her, she loves her people!  She will need regular grooming to continue to look and feel great. She has been spayed, has had a dental, is up to date on her vaccinations, has been dewormed, and is microchipped. If you are interested in meeting or adopting this angel pup, please go to www.lolr.org and fill out an adoption application. ##1945375##
