Story
Meet a timid lady Bombom🩷(bom 봄 means spring in Korean) Even though she is still wary of people, she is getting better little by little. Bombom is learning to get adapted to spending time with her foster and foster family inside the house. She has not tried to walk outside yet. *Separation anxiety: A home camera was installed in the house to see Bombom when the foster family went outside, and Bombom she was waiting and missing her foster family. *Potty-training: Bombom mostly stays indoors and can perfectly go in the center of the potty pad!💯 * Energy Level (1~10): Level 2 * Socialization -People: Curious about people but still scared. When her fam approach her, she tends to step backward. Still gets nervous and flinches when someone tries to touch her but doesn’t move away from her spot. She’ll take treats if her family is holding them. Once in a while, she approaches her foster and the family first! She can get nervous and tremble if she makes eye contact with human strangers. She moves away when someone suddenly comes at her. -Dogs: She gets along with the foster's dog. *She's still scared of Bombom’s surroundings and everything in the world. To protect herself, she “growls” but doesn’t show other aggressive behavior. When Bombom learns to build up trusting relationships with people and there are more enjoyable things than scary things in the world, it will be a great help for her to adapt to a new environment! *Bark: Doesn’t bark at all. *Is possible to bathe her but Bombom is still scared and uncomfortable with bathing and tries to move away. *Foster's Instagram: @happydog_world

Story
Meet Mas🩵 * Toward People: Loves everyone and becomes a lovebug irrespective of age or gender once he is acquainted. Approaches and smells even strangers but appears to feel awkward getting touched by them. Favors middle-aged women over middle-aged men. * Towards Dogs: Generally speaking, gets along well with other dogs despite some variation depending on dogs. Being a social butterfly, he occasionally gets tired of playing with other dogs. Plays well with larger dogs who are social. * Separation Anxiety: Has the trace of separation anxiety, so training is required. * Potty Training: Favors outdoor potty but indoor potty is limited only to urination. Potty pads success rate is 95%. * Hygiene: Is good at bathing, nail trimming, drying and brushing. Is scared of the sound of a clipper. *Walks: Enjoys a lot and walks nicely without pulling on the leash. * Car Sickness : Gets carsick when riding the car for over an hour. 💌Special Note💌 * Mastered the commands like “Sit” "Paw", "The Other Paw"and is learning “Wait” now.😊 * Enjoys eating and is relatively easy to train due to his food motivation, but he can sometimes eat or take treats hastily. * While indoors, Mas prefers resting over playing. ❗Health Condition❗ * Neutering: Done. * Others: Microchipped, heartworm treatment completed. * Is currently taking medication for an infection caused by a fungus in the ear. Care is needed to apply ointment. * Requires tear stain management. Proper care may be needed if tears are frequent. * Is suspected to have allergic reactions to pork.

Story
Meet Victor💜 She was rescued by an ADOGS volunteer, found tied with a tight collar in a pebble field. Upon rescue, she appeared frightened, surrounded by accumulated food, but quickly warmed up, showing signs of relief and wagging her tail. * Separation Anxiety: Still quite anxious when left alone for extended periods, resulting in whining and occasionally tearing wallpaper or mats 😭 * Housebroken: Indoors, she's a smart girl who consistently uses the designated potty pad 😊 * With calm friends, she slowly greets by sniffing, but for those who approach aggressively, she expresses with a growl. * Prefers greeting one friend at a time rather than meeting many dogs simultaneously. * Absolutely loves people! During greetings, she lies down and eagerly leans on people, seeking cuddles all over 🥰 * Extensively affectionate towards strangers outdoors, but indoors with unfamiliar faces, she's initially a bit apprehensive. Once familiar, she becomes an adorable sweetheart! * Initially pulls on the leash during walks but gradually syncs pace. Tends to chase after cats, so caution is necessary. * Rarely barks! When unfamiliar people enter the house, she quietly 'woofs' (who's there!) without continuous barking. * Has no issues with car rides! 😊 * Enjoys baths! 🫧 Loves it when thoroughly scrubbed during shampooing. * Loves eating, making training possible with kibble! * Feels a bit apprehensive during ear cleaning/nail trimming. * Sheds only during shedding seasons. * Special Skills: Mastered 'Paw, Sit, Lie Down, Wait, House, Cool, Kiss, Nose' – a true pro in commands! 😎 * Favorites: Familiar people, head pats, fruits, running, cuddling 💙 Foster's Instagram: @imbo_victor_

She is a sweet a smart Jindo mix girl who wants to be loved :) Behaviours from foster home : Lila is such a sweetheart who is smart and loves her hoomans! She is a bit timid and shy at first time. She would be appreciate it, if you could give her some time get used to her new family and new environment :) She is good with other doggie friends.

Please give her some time to get used to you and wait for her to feel comfortable and let her come to you :) She has good walking manner, as well. She absolutely loves walking! and She does her business only outside. She isn't a big barker and she has no separation anxiety. She is also crate trained, and she's never showed aggressive behavior. Also, she doesn't get carsick, so- you can enjoy car drive with her :D Lila may be a bit shy and timid at first time, but she is such a sweetheart and she is very gentle and loving~ Would you be her loving pawrents? :) Allergy/health issues : She hasn't showed any allergy issue. She does not have any health issue. But, sadly.. She lost her right hind leg because of her abusive previous owner...

Story
Senior dogs need help! This sweet family is hoping for a miracle. Their mom has entered  a permanent nursing home for Alzheimer’s.  Unfortunately, her family can not care for the dogs and are searching for a place for them to go. They've reached out to multiple rescues, but no one is able to help. We are their last hope before they go to the shelter. All of the dogs are seniors, and its highly unlikely they would make it out alive. We need fosters or adopters asap. The Chihuahua is named Girlfriend, and she is actually the mother of the other dogs! Mo is the black dog, and Lily is the white dog. If we can find fosters, we will have them seen by our vet and groomed. They're low maintenance and quiet. They love to take naps and sit in the sun. Once they warm up to you, they'd love to sit next to you and cuddle.  Girlfriend, Mo and Lily are a little scared and shy right now, which is understandable given the situation. They need a loving, safe space to decompress. We will split them up if it means saving their lives. Can you help and take one? Please email contactus@dexterfoundation.com. As foster dogs, we will cover all of their expenses. You just provide the love. Please share their stories. Girlfriend, Mo and Lily are running out of time #seniordogs #poodlelife #poodles #maltipoolife #maltipoos #maltipoosofinstagram #chihuahuasofinstagram #chihuahualife #chihuahua #adoptdontbreedorbuy #adoptdontshop #adoptadog #fostering #fosteringsaveslives #seniordogsofinstagram #alzheimers #caregiver #caregiving #cairnterrier #poodlelove #Redondobeach #palosverdes #manhattanbeach #santamonica #studiocity #losangeles #volunteer #fosterdogsofinstagram #rescuedogs #rescuedogsofinstagram

Story
Gigi is a very special senior girl looking for a forever home. She's a happy well adjusted girl who lived with her mom her whole life. Gigi's mom developed dementia and finally had to go into assisted living. Her family asked us to help find Gigi a home. Although Gigi is considered a senior, small dogs live well into their late teens, so Gigi is really middle aged! She's such a happy little girl, and has the cutest personality. We had her examined by our vet, and treated her to a spa day. Gig is easy going and is fitting in very well with all the dogs in her foster home. Senior dogs are a joy to have in the home. They're all the good parts of having a dog, rolled into one loving package. Gigi is extremely well behaved, and doesn't have any destructive habits like chewing or digging. She's fully house trained, and loves to cuddle without being needy or clingy. Gigi loves to go on small walks, but doesn't need a lot of exercise. She's happy to sit next to you while you work on the computer or watch TV. Gigi would be perfect for a senior adopter or anyone who works from home. She promises to be quiet during zoom meetings! If you'd like to meet Gigi and live in the Southern California area, please complete our adoption application found on dexterfoundation.com If you can't adopt Gigi, can you share her story? There are so many dogs who need homes right now. Sharing Gigi's story will help get the word out!

Story
These two Chihuahuas, "Bruno", 3 yrs old (long-haired) and "Ollie", 6 yrs old (short-haired), belonged to my 92 year old father. I have been taking care of them for the past 6 months, while I handle my father's affairs, but I cannot wait any longer and must return to work and can no longer take care of them. They are both current on shots and neutered. Both dogs are really quiet, not the yapping kind, and they are very gentle and loving. They get along with children and other pets, including the "boss" of the house, "Liliana of the Veil", (Lily), my female cat...I desperately need to find a home soon, otherwise they will have to go to a shelter because I have been off too long and can't wait much longer. Please save them!!
