Story
MORTY is about 10 years old and weighs just over 50 pounds. He loves the easy life. His favorite activities are sleeping, eating, and walking - in that order. LOL He walks very well on leash and is not reactive towards other dogs on his walks, but he is not dog social so should be the only dog in the home. He is not the type for a busy household or lots of activities as it makes him unsure and uncomfortable. A quiet home with a yard vs an apartment would be ideal. He needs an experienced leader, and with that person he'll be the sweetest, cuddliest, most mellow dog around. MORTY is neutered, up to date on shots and microchipped. House trained and crate trained. He ignores dog savvy cats.

Story
Meet Kobe! He is a 5 year old Mastiff/Staffordshire terrier mix. Kobe Is a stud and gets looks wherever he goes, whether it's quick trips to Home Depot or visiting the beach. He has a stocky build and a gorgeous face and weighs about 75 pounds full grown.. Kobe is originally from the South LA Shelter and has been at our kennel waiting for a forever home! If you adopt Kobe, he comes with 6 months of weekly training sessions at our kennel plus two weeks of boarding. He walks well on leash and does not pull unless he sees a cat or small dog. He knows his basic commands, sit, down, stay and come and orients to his handler well. Kobe is very strong, but very gentle and sweet as well. Due to his size and strength we believe he would do well with an experienced dog owner either as an only dog and we prefer him to live in a house with a yard vs apartment. Here is what his trainer recently said about him: I've been working with Kobe for a few months now, and he is always happy to see me and always ready for some fun together. We have been working on leash manners and he does very nicely (unless there is a stray cat lurking about and we have been working on leaving those alone too.) Kobe enjoys going to the park and watching all of the kids, bikes, dogs and horses that go by with ease. He knows all of his commands like; sit, down, stay, focus, and is working on rollover! He's easy to get in and out of the car and is an excellent passenger. I really can't say enough great things about this big hunk, he has the looks and the personality and would be a great dog to snuggle with on the couch. Yesterday Kobe worked on walking nicely by distractions, ie bikes, remote cars, drones, horses, goats, dogs, kids playing soccer etc. We worked on down, stay, and learned rollover (which is more rub my belly ūü§£). He was great getting in and out of my car and sat nicely outside Starbucks and had a puppachino with a lot of stuff going on around him. SEE VIDEO!

Story
MEET LAILA! Look up ageless in the dictionary and you might just find a picture of LAILA. Laila is a stunning 13 years young beauty who doesn't seem to know she's a senior. This vivacious lady loves hiking, long walks (multiple times a day if you'll oblige), and running zoomies between head scratches, sunbathing, and perching on her fort. Her zest for an adventurist life knows no bound! Laila can be touch sensitive but beneath that wild child exterior, she just wants to be loved and pampered like the queen she is. She was rescued from South LA shelter back in 2018 and has celebrated multiple New Years, Valentine's, Halloweens, Thanksgivings, and Christmases with us. We're hoping this is the year she lands herself an adoring family and warm home to call her own. Laila is house-trained and crate-trained. We recommend a home without other pets and she would do best with older children (high school age or older).

Story
Meet BIG BOSS, a big 10yo couch potato! He was adopted from after we rescued him from South LA shelter but unfortunately, due to pandemic hard times and no fault of his own, he is looking for a new home. Here is some of what his adopter had said about BIG BOSS. - 80 pounds of love and affection. - Mellow and easy-going. - He LOVES people and if he had his way he would stop and say hi to every person he sees. - Likes walks but doesn't go far or fast. - He is a sweet and loving couch potato that wants nothing more than to be around his person At our kennel, he is likes to lounge around in the sun. He's indifferent to the older dogs, but perks right up and plays with the younger female dogs we've had in our rescue. https://www.instagram.com/p/CZSsIEzP9Jw/ Big Boss is house-trained, crate-trained, microchipped and current on shots. We recommend a home with middle age school kids or above and no cats. He's very easy to walk and enjoys trying to keep up with the "ladies".

He has been working with a trainer each week who has been teaching him and exposing him to different activities and environments and attends a small group class Check out video of him working the "lunge line" and other videos https://youtu.be/qakqEbGqKBg https://www.instagram.com/p/CZC4rD2PgvX/ https://www.instagram.com/p/CYxeijXp4zZ/ If you adopt FRANCO - he comes with a limited number of free sessions with his trainer (depending on location) to help you get off to a great start!

Story
Hi, I'm BUD! I'm a cute, compact bulldog/pit mix that was rescued by DDR from the South LA shelter where I had shown up in pretty messed up skin. I'm looking better now am ready for a home!. I am affectionate, spunky, and have a happy-go-lucky personality. I'm like the "class clown" of DDR and I love going on adventures, getting head scratches, hanging with my dog friends and drooling on humans. I have a cute head tilt and little wobble in my step from prior nerve damage but I personally think this makes me cuter. :) I'm 6 years old, weigh about 50 lbs, am neutered, microchipped and up to date on vaccinations and ready to win you over. Follow me on IG for more pics and video: https://www.instagram.com/explore/tags/ddrbud/ If you are in the Los Angeles area and would like to meet BUD, fill out our adoption questionnaire at downtowndogrescue.org/adoption-questionnaire and our adoption coordinator will get back to you. (Please add the email adopt@downtowndogrescue.org to your contacts so we don't end up in your SPAM folder.)
