Story
Ron is about 2 yrs, I got him as a puppy but grew to big. He is so active and friendly but I have kids and they are afraid of the dog for the reason that as he tries to play around he will accidentally scratch you. I know there's people out there that could train him not to do that and he would be a great companion.

Story
Baby Bear is a 9 year old pitbull mix. He was rescued on November 14 of 2014. We estimated he was 3 months at the time, we found him crated and abandoned. It took a long time to get where we are now, he was a hard rescue to train because he was so frightened from the moment we found him. He is house trained and knows MANY commands and is always learning. He is not good with other animals and unfortunately we found out he is not good with babies. We have a 5 week old at home, he was doing well until recently. We believe he sees the baby as an animal and wants to attack the baby. Due to this we need to find a new home. We tried different tactics to help with the adjustment but unfortunately none have worked. He is sooooo loved and I want the best for him. Right now we are keeping him in his crate (he is crate trained) for the majority of the day which is unfair for him. He is an indoor dog and has been all his life. He had double knee surgery in 2020.

Story
Meet Dwight. This lover boy is 4 years old and just loves to be loved. Dwight was born deaf and requires a lot of affection and reassurance. But I promise you he is so loveable and silly. He loves following us around and staying as close as possible. Because he is deaf, he does not know how loud he can be nor does he understand personal space. He is just the sweetest deaf boy just trying to get some pets and cuddles from everyone. Unfortunately with our busy schedule, we are not able to give him the attention he needs. Please feel free to ask us any questions you may have about Dwight.

Story
I found Bubba when I was still in the Military, stationed at Fort Hood Texas. Dogs will sometimes be abandoned by family’s as they move to new duty stations, this may have been the case. Either way, he was just 12 weeks at the time. Roaming the streets with no care in the world. I opened my car door and he jumped right in. I had some experience training dogs in the military prior to picking him up, so I applied basic obedience, leash training, and crate training. Bubba was heavily socialized with people, kids, and dogs/cats at age appropriate times throughout his growth to 1 year. I was ordered to report to South Korea for 1 year. He was left with a fellow service member and his 8 pure bred Belgian shepard’s. He’s got as much energy as you’d expect from a cattle dog, and equally as much pettiness from a husky. He’s 2 years old, loyal, loving, and a handful. I’m looking for a home that is patient and can handle energy. Separating from the military has been hard, and he deserves better.

Petunia

American Staffordshire Terrier

Female, Young
La Quinta, CA
Size

Story
Meet Petunia, the epitome of canine charm and affection. She is a blend of love, energy, and sweetness, making her an ideal companion for those seeking a furry friend with a heart of gold. Whether it's a wagging tail, gentle nuzzles, or warm, slobbery kisses, Petunias love knows no bounds. She is great with all people that comes across. While Petunia is incredibly social and loving with their human family, she would thrive best as the only dog in the house. Additionally, a fenced backyard is recommended to provide a safe space for Petunia to play, explore, and burn off her boundless energy. However, she does love going to daycare to socialize with other dogs. Petunia has been through a training bootcamp and has excelled at obedience. She has made huge strides with her leash walking but still tends to get really excited and reactive when seeing other dogs while on leash. She is looking for someone that will continue her training and is committed to her continued success.

Story
A friend of mine found the little dog abandoned. She couldn’t keep it. I had just lost my cat and after three weeks of knowing Dilly I felt I could adopt him. I am a senior citizen and Dilly has to much energy for me and as sad as I feel I must put him in a good home. I will get another cat. Dilly is a loving little dog but needs a younger person to match his energy. He would have been taken to a dog pound on Yucaipa where animals are not put up for adoption. So I was told. I couldn’t let him be destroyed. I tried but his energy as a pup is too much.
