Story
My family and I have made the EXTREMELY difficult decision to put our dog Buddy up for adoption. He is a great dog, but our hectic schedules and lifestyles don’t allow us to give him what he needs. Buddy was a shelter dog. He’s approximately two years old and we were told that he is a Jindo and Lab Retriever mix. He has been indoor dog since we adopted him, is great with people, kids, and our other dog. We trust him completely with our five year old and he plays great with her and our nephews. He is very vocal and jumpy but not aggressive. He’s VERY afraid of loud noises and is terrified of fireworks. We love him but he deserves more. He is high energy and stubborn and needs an owner with more time and a more active lifestyle that will give him the opportunity to run and get his wiggles out. He is neutered, chipped and has all his shots.

Story
Keanu is a happy-go-lucky little dude! This sweet senior loves to play with his toys! Keanu also loves to go for walks in the neighborhood and even enjoys car rides! He follows his foster family everywhere they go. Keanu is housebroken as well. He gets along great with smaller dogs and pays no attention to the big ones when he meets them. Keanu does have a chronic condition called Spondylosis in his spine. He is on medication for this and will be for life. This doesn’t seem to slow him down but it is why we recommend a home with older children and small dogs so as to not risk injury. Keanu does great on his meds and doesn’t seem to be in pain. If you’re looking for a funny little guy to hang out with and be your best friend look no further!    May 23, 2024, 8:21 pm

Story
Ridgina, a charming Rhodesian Ridgeback mix, is ready to steal your heart and become your newest family member!

At approximately 4 years old, Ridgina has already shown incredible strength and spirit.

Story
Sweet Nova was found as a stray in an alley exhibiting signs of severe neglect, but now she’s ready to steal your heart. Though a little shy at first, Nova blossoms into the most loving companion once she warms up to you. She’s always eager to cuddle up and be near her humans, making every moment together special. Nova also enjoys leisurely walks and is a champ at sleeping through the night and settles into her crate with minimal fuss. While she might let out a few cries in her crate at first, redirecting her attention quiets her down in no time. This intelligent girl is a toy enthusiast and even entertains herself by tossing them around. She’s doing great with potty training, reliably going after meals without fail. If you’re ready to welcome this loving, playful, and well-behaved furry friend into your family, submit an application to meet Nova today! &#226&#157&#164&#239&#184&#143 May 23, 2024, 8:21 pm

Story
Meet Squirrel, the resilient girl who was part of a trio rescued from an extreme hoarding situation at Devore Shelter months ago   &#226&#157&#164&#239&#184&#143 Despite her challenging past, our incredible foster families have provided a safe haven for her to decompress. While Squirrel still grapples with anxiety, she's slowly rediscovering joy and the simple pleasures of being a dog. She finds solace in the company of other dogs and plays well with them, but human interaction remains a struggle. Although she happily accepts treats and will sit next to human friends on her terms, she's hesitant to receive pets from her fosters. We're immensely grateful to our understanding foster families, who exhibit the patience Squirrel needs to rebuild trust.    Squirrel has undergone her wellness exam, is up-to-date on vaccines, and is already spayed! Your continued support and donations towards her care are deeply appreciated.   We firmly believe there's someone out there for Squirrel, someone who understands the horrendous environment she escaped and is willing to work patiently with her through her trust and anxiety. If you're interested in meeting Squirrel, please apply for her adoption at www.barksoflove.org. Let's find Squirrel the loving home she deserves. May 23, 2024, 8:21 pm

Story
Meet Bailey, a delightful 11-week-old German Shepherd mix with a playful spirit and a heart full of love. Her soft coat and sweet face will charm anyone she meets.   Here are some of Bailey’s favorite things - Playing with kids and furry friends - Chasing balls in the backyard - Squeaky toys - Meeting new people (she gets so excited!)   Curious about her backstory? Animal control officers from Corona Animal Shelter found Bailey and her siblings dumped in a cardboard box upon arriving at work. Despite her rough start, Bailey is receiving a fresh healthy start! She has received two rounds of puppy shots and is awaiting her third and rabies vaccinations, as well as her spay when she’s old enough.   Bailey has been settling into her foster home nicely, where she is learning excellent potty habits, crate training, and socialization skills with her human (and fur siblings). She is well on her way to becoming a wonderful family companion.   This smart pup already knows a few tricks and loves showing them off. Bailey is eager to find a forever home where she can share her boundless affection and playful energy. She’s ready to become your loyal companion and best friend.   If you’re looking for a loving, playful, and smart addition to your family, Bailey is the perfect pup for you!   Submit an adoption application to meet Bailey and see if she’s the perfect fit for your home:   www.barksoflove.org   Give this lovable pup the chance to become a cherished part of your family!
