Story
We adopted Lola 7 years ago from a shelter, who told us she wasn’t treated the best by her previous owners. She is still a very nervous dog, but incredibly sweet. We do not want to put her back in a shelter so hopefully we can find another loving home for her. She is 10 years old, so technically a senior, but doesn't act old. She is healthy with no problems and is showing no signs of slowing down.

We adopted Sophie 7 years ago from a shelter, who told us she wasn't treated the best by her previous owners. She is still a very nervous and skittish dog, but incredibly sweet and goofy.

She's healthy with no problems and isn't showing any signs of slowing down.

Story
This dog was inherited from our grandmother, who adopted him before her unfortunate passing. We cannot afford to keep him, but our heart aches to see him go into a shelter where he may stay for years on end. He is a sweet, sociable dog, and we'd love to make sure he is placed in a good home.

Story
URGENT!!!!!  Carter is an eight year old american bulldog/sttaffordshire terrier mix.  he is quite loving and sweet with people.  he is best as the only dog. currently he is living with one other calm dog and gets along fine.  he will get excited and can be assertive with energentic dogs.  Carter is a good dog, he just needs the right forever home. he has been in foster almost ONE YEAR!  We need to get him his own home asap!!!  We rescued him from the shelter where they were going to euthanize him for his imperfect behavior with other dogs.   While he is safe and in foster, we are hoping to get a home for Carter sooner rather than later.  Once adopted, we can save another dog at risk of being killed in the shelter system. Please check out our facebook and website for more pictures and updates on all our available dogs.  818-636-1522. goldenyearsdogsanctuary@yahoo.com  ##1263726##

Story
Celsius is adorable!  she is loving, friendly, kind, gets along great with other dogs.  She is playful, energetic, but puppy crazy energetic. She would be the perfect pet for an active person who likes to take walks, or hike.  She is housebroken. She has no history of a bite or aggressive behavior towards people.  She is not doing great in our sanctuary with many other dominant dogs.  She would do best in a home as the diva of the hourse!. She does have a high prey drive.  NO CATS required in her new home.  We saved her from certain death at the SEAACA shelter. She had kennel cough, a fever and no appetite.  Of course we treated her and now she is great!  She really needs a home of her own with someone who can give her attention and love.  The shelter said she is 10 years old. her frosted face makes it seem that way, but she acts more like a 6-7 year old. ##1452021##
