Story
Meet Pixie Chick! Pixie Chick was surrendered to Chesterfield Square Shelter-South LA by her owner for unknown reasons. As a senior without any adoption interest at a very over-crowded shelter, Pixie Chick was scheduled to be euthanized on May 31st. Happily, on May 28th, Pixie Chick instead became a Frosted Face, and her safety and well-being will never be at risk again. This sweet beauty is 14 years old and weighs 37 lbs. She's a little stiff, but when she gets moving, she doesn't want to stop! She loves getting slow, gentle pets. Pixie Chick represented FFF at a community event with volunteers and two other Frosted Faces. She was a social butterfly, wandering around the crowd, meeting people, and stopping every outstretched hand for petting. She took a well-deserved nap on the way back in the car. Pixie Chick just left on a two-week Frosted Fling, and we are so happy she is enjoying time in a home again. Check back for an update on what we learn about her!

Story
Meet Donny! 12-year-old Donny was entrusted to our care after his dad passed away, and no one in the extended family could keep him. Donny is a very sweet and gentle boy, who is good with other dogs and cats. He enjoys the simple pleasures of life including a good meal, naps on a cool floor, and ear scratches. Donny went on a two-week Frosted Fling to enjoy some extra TLC while we learned what he is like in a home setting. His Fling Mom reports: "I just finished a two-week Frosted Fling with sweet Donny and here's what I know: * Donny is house-trained. The very first day, he found his potty spot outside in the yard. * Donny loved his food, and did not show any food aggression while he was with me. I gave him treats next to my two dogs and he was patient and accepted his treat when it was offered. * Donny is either neutral or loving to other dogs. He pretty much ignored my two, but was very protective with my friend's fragile 18 year-old pup. * He is squirrel obsessed! He goes and sits under my tree in the yard waiting for squirrels to appear. Then he tries to catch them (unsuccessfully!) * Donny loves his naps, preferable on the cool wood floor. He also liked to squeeze into the smallest dog bed he could find despite the presence and proximity of numerous larger ones. * Donny is not a dog who seeks affection, but is sweet and loving. He enjoys having his ears scratched and loves a nice belly rub. * While Donny is mostly a potato, he loves his walks. He handles stairs well, although in the morning he can be a little stiff. * Donny was not interested in my cat. * His tail is always wagging. If he's awake, it's moving. Such a content guy. Donny is such a good, sweet, calm dog. I hope there's a family out there for him!" We also learned during Donny's Fling that he sleeps deeply and becomes startled if bumped into or awakened. For this reason, he would do best in a home without young children. Donny is back on-site and ready to meet his forever family. Might that be you? Come meet Donny during Open House on Saturday and Sunday between 10:00 and 1:00!

Story
MooShoo is one STUNNING boy! Sadly his start was rough.  Part of a seizure from a hoarding home during a tragic fire, when he and dozens others were left behind tethered, in kennels or locked in bird cages.  Despite his start he made it out of the shelter to what he thought would be his hero for life. Shortly after his adoption, he spooked and got out.  Sadly, his new owner sought help to get him caught only after pressure from the community that kept seeing him.  NO JOKE...... After weeks on the run she blocked the trappers number when she called to say he's safe and can go home.  No response to the shelter calls and again his life took a turn, this time for the better.  Volunteers took their time to establish trust, teach confidence and realistic expectations.  He started to thrive.  He loves walks, attention, food and adult people. Due to past trauma, he doesn't do well with people near his rear end, would prefer to not live with kids (due to their unexpected nature) and doesn't do well with other dogs. He loves his people in his inner circle deeply and will do anything to keep them happy.  He will dance to greet you.  He is quiet and undemanding.  He hangs contentedly in his crate between outings.  He transitions well to strangers and enjoys whomever takes him on outings or pack walks.  He just wants to be loved and safe.  It's time for his next step and LAST landing.  Is it your home?  He is waiting for you. ##1716040##

Story
Scarlet, like most of our dogs started running scared from everyone.  She had been seen repeatedly returning to a dog park as if she had been dumped there.  Multiple attempts by people and animal control to catch her had failed with several resulting with her on the nearby freeway before we got the call to help catch her.  She had already been "out" for days and although had a pattern was being chased so covering ground, making trapping hard.  We went with our gut and set at the park where she always seemed to return.  It did the trick and she was safe.  Sadly, as expected no one came forward to claim or pick her up.  She was scared, guarded and true to her primary breed (chow) not the best communicator.  We took things slow, gave her space and time.  She softened up and began to glow.  The big suprise came when she showed us she knows sit, down, shake and even roll over.  What happened and where were her people?    In their absence all we could do was build on what she already knew and start to expand her circle to include strangers and the scary world.  It has taken time but she now approaches people for food, welcomes affection from stangers and her eagerness to interact and please those she knows is irresistable.  She is extremely food motivated, wicked smart and eager to please.  She is balanced with dogs big or small.  Her house training is a work in progrees but getting better.  She is still relatively new to us but her progress has been amazing,  She is starting to show off her playful and silly side.  If you think you don't have the time or ability for a lifetime commitment but enjoy a dog she could really grow best while in foster.  If you enjoy the journey of watching a dog grow and slowly evolve this girl is the one for you. 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.  NO offleash activities in unfenced areas for life.
