Story
Meet Reggie! Reggie is a senior chihuahua mix. He loves attention and is food motivated. He is shy at first, but while he may take a bit to warm up to you he is very sweet once he does! We would prefer not to place him in a home with kids. He gets along well with small dogs too. He came to us when his owner passed away. This gentleman is looking for a quiet  retirement home. He is on medication for his heart. Currently Reggie is in a foster home with other dogs but what he would really love is a home of his own. If you are interested in meeting Reggie we must first have an application which can be filled out on our website, www.greatpets.org. That is the one and only way we receive applications. Reggie's adoption donation includes his neuter, vet examination, vaccinations, microchip, blood work and dental cleaning.   July 13, 2024, 1:31 pm

Story
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!July 13, 2024, 6:21 pm

Brownie’s foster family dubs him “cute, loveable, and playful!” They also add that he loves to play with other dogs, learns quickly, enjoys walks, and likes attention.

He has been described by his people as gentle, sweet, easy going, smart, and energetic, and he packages all of this in a compact 13 lbs.!Brownie is about 8 years old, and he has a lot of love to offer.

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.July 13, 2024, 1:11 pm
