Story
Baloo is a 2.5-year-old Dalmatian mix who is very smart, and VERY goofy. He is an intense sniffer, preferring to spend most of his time with his nose glued to the ground, and if you're not careful he'll wander off while following his nose. He also has a nervous disposition, particularly in new situations, so when Baloo encounters new places or new people/dogs, he prefers to sniff everything out until he is comfortable before breaking out his charming personality. , While Baloo can be very selective with his friends, particularly his dog friends, once he has gotten to know you and accept you, he's fiercely loyal and incredibly loving. Whenever he sees an unexpected friend (dog or human), his tail wags so hard that his body wiggles all over the place and he can barely walk straight. Baloo also gets the zoomies A LOT (did I mention he has a ton of energy?) so he loves to be outside. However, since Baloo gets really attached to his human/dog friends, he doesn't particularly enjoy being out in the yard on his own. He doesn't usually get separation anxiety (although he can in some situations), and he can be left alone for long periods of time, but he generally prefers to go explore with his group of dogs/humans nearby. While Baloo does exhibit some behaviors that would be cause for concern for certain owners, we believe an experienced owner or an owner that is committed to training/has trained in the past to deal with complex dogs would be able to take great care of him. Ultimately, we love Baloo very much and want the best for him, and we know that he can be the perfect dog for someone looking a dog with a lot of love to give who needs a lot of attention and love in return.

Story
Hi! My name is Rosie and I'm 10 months old. I was rescued from a backyard breeder out in the San Bernardino area. I wasn't treated very well there, so I'm shy around men at first, but I'm a very sweet, affectionate girl as soon as we meet. I'm very used to kids and get along great with them too! (And let's just say, "I'm not a cat person!") I have very good manners - I'm house trained and even know how to "sit" and "shake"!! I also LOVE to smile! ( I'm looking forward to finding my forever home soon!! Do you think it might be with YOU?

Story
We rescued this super sweet 2 year old (as of March 2023) boy and he is looking for his forever home. Like many blue-eyed Dalmatians, Pongo is deaf but that will not stop him from being a wonderful and loving companion. He loves people and dogs and he would love a chance to be a part of your family! Pongo gives great hugs to show affection but he will need an experienced adopter who can give him what he needs to thrive. He will benefit from having another dog in the home, around his size, and a properly fenced yard to play in. To find out how to meet this dog please submit an application from our website or email our rescue and adoption center at: adopt@petadoptionfund.org or call (818) 340-1186 For general calls please contact (818) 340-1186.
