Story
This little cutie is Nellie! Nellie is a 4 month old, female, Chihuahua/Jack Russell Terrier mix. Nellie was born in our foundation when her Mama Lucy and two other dogs came to our rescue. The three dogs were seen being thrown from a car window, dumped and abandoned. The car took off and never came back for them. Luckily a kind woman got them to safety and reached out to us to see if we could bring them into our foundation. We said yes! Soon after arriving, we noticed that Mama Lucy was pregnant and soon after gave birth to three puppies. Nellie is a happy and sweet little girl that just wants to be loved. She is playful and so much fun! She definitely needs another young and small breed dog in the home or she could be adopted with her brother Nelson (Black/brown puppy). We don't adopt puppies out as "only" dogs. Nellie would love a safe and secure yard to run around in and owners that are not gone long hours during the day. Nellie is such a precious pup and we know that her forever home is out there! Nellie is microchipped and vaccinated and will soon be spayed at the appropriate age. We only adopt in the Greater Los Angeles Areas as an in person meet/greet, home check, and trial period are required. Nellie's adoption fee is $600 Please contact us at: Gina@theforgottendog.org or 310-990-2020

Story
P is approx 13-15y/o. Since she has lived with us she has learned to walk on a leash and is now potty trained! She loves her routine and likes when most of her days look pretty much the same! She needs a family who has someone who works from home, is retired or is just home most of the day with her. When her family is not home she will need to be in her crate to avoid accidents. She does not like riding in the car but she loves to go for walks around town, walk to the beach, sniff other dogs, and she never barks. She even turns into a little hoping bunny on her walks! (Videos to prove 😉) She loves to learn from other animals in the household and would love if there were other furry friends to live with. P is not one to crawl onto your lap or come if called however she will cuddle on your lap if you pick her up and initiate it. She is a bit senile and loves to pace most of the day, but she will take a long nap or 2 throughout the day. P is up to date on her medication and vaccines!

Story
This little cutie is Bindi! She is an approximately 1 year old, 9lb, female Chihuahua/Maltese mix with a touch of Westie in her. Bindi was found as a stray on the streets all alone and abandoned. We had her scanned but there was no microchip and during a protocol stray hold...nobody came forward to claim her. BIndi is a very confident and playful little pup and can be a little bossy at times, but with a good pack leader, she does listen and learn quickly. We are looking for a home with another young and very playful dog or she could be adopted with one of her good friends in the rescue. We are also looking for a home with a safe and secure backyard and with owners that are not gone long hours during the day. A puppy savvy home is a big plus! Bindi is so adorable and so full of life...she deserves the best home out there! Bindi is microchipped, vaccinated, and spayed. 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

For more of Cookie you can see him on instagram at @CookiesForeverHome — At 4 months & 14 lbs he is expected to stay on the smaller side but his breed is still a bit of a mystery! - He truly is the sweetest & silliest pup you’ll ever meet! • He has been with our rescue and been bottle fed since 2 weeks old and is very affectionate, quickly forming deep bonds and attachments to those around him. • With his high energy levels we believe a home with another young dog who wants to play as much as him is where he will really thrive! • His favorite things: : Sleeping in and snuggling up under the covers, Using his doggy stairs to go on and off the bed, Going potty on his pee pads, Roughhousing with his puppy siblings, Squeaky toys, Eating kibble off his “snuffle mat”, & Chasing his tail! • If you’re looking to add a new family member into your home and heart, Cookie might just be your perfect match!

I don't know where I came from. Whoever rescued me, tried to care for me, but couldn't, so they gave me to Forte to find a better home. I'm really happy they did because now I have doggie friends to play with, good food and humans who care about me. Now I'm ready to move on to a home of my own, so please ask them to introduce us!

Story
ADOPTION PENDING I was so scared when my siblings and I showed up to our new foster mom's house. We were really unsure for the first few hours but as we got comfortable, we really warmed up to our new mom and big canine foster brother and two feline foster brothers. My foster mom tells me every day how sweet and smart I am! She tells me that I am the cutest little guy in the room and gives me kisses and snuggles which I love. She also says I'm the best because I am potty trained to my whelping pad and even use the porch potty during the day! I am enjoying my time here at my foster mom's house, chewing on my bones, and sitting out in the sun! I would really like to have a family of my own though… Do you think you might want to be my new family? If you are interested in meeting Redondo, please download the Adoption Questionnaire, fill it out and email it back to us at info@farescue.org or fax (310) 362-0321. You can also meet this and/or other available dogs at our weekend adoptions. [Redono was born on 9/25/23 and weighs 8 lbs.] *$100 deposit applies if adopted before the completion of spay/neuter as scheduled. (2401)

ADOPTION PENDING I'm just a sweet guy whose previous owner (who failed to be my guardian) didn't seem to have time for me and gave me up to find a better home, so I'm looking for my human who will never discard me. I'm ok with other dogs, but I prefer my humans (unless your dog and I hit it off). I love walkies, or hanging out in my nook. I'm really just a guy who's up for anything as long I’m with you. If you are interested in meeting Nijo, please download the Adoption Questionnaire, fill it out and email it back to us at info@farescue.org or fax (310) 362-0321.

Story
Amelia (Mia) is a very gentle, quiet and well behaved little lady. She is active, entertaining and curious but not a barker. Amelia loves to lay in the sun so a yard is mandatory for her. She would also like to sleep in bed with you at night. Once past the hurdle of her natural shyness with people who are new to her, Mia is friendly and extremely affectionate. She loves to be cuddled and would like to be a lapdog. Mia may be initially shy and skittish so she will need some patience. It took her about three months to really come out of her shell and become comfortable and confident in her foster home. As soon as she warms up to you though she wants to be your little shadow. Amelia would prefer a quiet household without much food traffic and no small children. It would be great if there is another calm dog in the household already since Mia loves to cuddle up to her doggy friends whenever possible. While Mia is housebroken, she does still need attention paid to make sure she is let out of the house to relieve herself. She will use training pads in the house if necessary. Mia is about 9 years old, she weighs 9 lbs., she is spayed, microchipped and up to date on all her shots. Our vet assumes that she is a Chihuahua/Dachshund mix.

Story
SHORTY is a lovely cream/blond color, 9 pound, senior boy Deer Head Chihuahua (about 12 years) whose senior human dad passed away, leaving Shorty and his four little girl companions, Cookie, Millie, Poopsy, and Missy, without their dad. They all get along really well, are house trained, and also know to use pads to do their business indoors, and at night, and when it's raining or very cold out. They are not barkers, only barking to warn that someone is at or near the front door, and then they settle down again. They are great with cats because their housemates have been six (6) cats! If shown a lot of affection and understanding when welcomed into their new homes, we are sure these lovely kiddos will do well in a loving new home even if they don’t stay together. IMPORTANT NOTE: Recently the number of deaths from hungry coyote attacks has greatly increased. Coyotes can climb 10 foot fences with a small to medium sized dog in their jaws. This happens in broad daylight in the middle of the day, and on trails while hiking with your dog on a leash, it is truly unbelievable, and we have frightening first-hand accounts. We are listing these lovely pups to help their current foster/rescue in finding them wonderful new homes. Shorty is neutered, all four girl pups are spayed, and all of them current on vaccines. To learn more about Shorty (or Cookie, Millie, Poopsy, and Missy), please contact us at: theanimalsleftbehind@socal.rr.com (also our PayPal email for donations and sponsorships).
