Story
🌷WELCOME MAMA LOLA 🌷 Lola was saved with her (grown) puppy Bruno from West LA Shelter in Los Angeles CA. They were dumped in the shelter and spent 8 cold, long months sharing a small kennel 😔. Thankfully, our angel foster family offered to take them both! After decompression and evaluation, we have decided it will be best for both of them to be adopted our separately. 💕 🌸 Lola is around 5️⃣ years old. She is the quintessential mama dogo: sweet, loving, cuddly and submissive. She does fine with other male dogs and loves her people. 🐴 She has been around farm animals and loves her hikes and walks in the PNW outdoors🏔️. Lola also LOVES a comfy bed to cuddle up and nap on. 😴 She has moderate energy level and would prefer to have a fur sibling! 🐶 🌺Please give Lola the opportunity to have a family of her own! 🌺 These mama dogs are generally SO SWEET and love to find a spot of sunshine and nap all day! She's dripping with sweetness 🍬 Adopt Lola! Dogos are a wonderful breed but we urge anyone interested to dig in and do a lot of research before deciding if they are a good fit for your home. They require a lot of attention and training with them never ends! Boundaries must be enforced and they often need reminders as they push past boundaires you set! Dogos are loving, kind and gentle but don't mistake that for weakness because they are equally powerful and intense as well! Everyone in the home must be on board with having a dogo and play a major role in their daily routines and training. Yes it is work, but the rewards are ten-fold! Lazy homes don't work for dogos as they need stimulation, exercise, and lots of attention too during their younger years. Our goal in rescue is to be as transparent as we can about each and every dog plus make sure new families really understand the needs of a Dogo!

Story
💙WELCOME BRUNO 💙 Bruno was rescued from West LA Shelter in Los Angeles CA with his mama Lola (we suspect!). They shared a kennel for 8 long months, cuddled on a cold concrete floor waiting for help 😢 Thank goodness for our AMAZING foster, who took them both in and has helped them remember what it's like to be dogs again! They are living the PNW dream!🌦️ 🧢After decompression and evaluation, we feel the best thing for Bruno and Lola is to adopt them separately. They have been successfully separated and are enjoying one on one human time! 🧢 🔵 Bruno is a stoic boy at about 2️⃣(ish) years old. He is still gaining confidence and understanding of what life outside of bars looks like! He is loving and silly! 🚙Bruno's FAVORITE activity is riding in a side by side with his foster dad🚙. He'll jump right in and enjoy the ride! He has been working on his basic commands, leash walking and also loves hiking! He is an absolutely GORGEOUS boy that has waited for his forever him for long enough!! Bruno would do best in a home WITHOUT other dogs, with a human that loves to exercise and understands and has patience for him. And owner MUST have an off roading vehicle!!! Kidding, but that would be a major plus! 🍃 🌀This sweet boy will require ongoing training and understanding that he does not do great with other dogs. He does have some leash reactivity to dogs that his foster is working on. He has been around farm animals and enjoys being outside. He is devoted and loyal and loves his humans. 🤟🏽Please consider adopting Bruno and giving him the life he has always dreamed of! 🚗 Bruno will be your shotgun rider for life!🚙 Dogos are a wonderful breed but we urge anyone interested to dig in and do a lot of research before deciding if they are a good fit for your home.

Story
Hi my name Theodore my foster family calls my Thor for short. I had a rough start to life coming from a bad backyard breeding situation then being abandoned by my first family. What my foster Mom got out of my first family is I was born on April 9th of 2023, and that I am extra lovable. I have grown so much in my time with my foster family. I do very well with other dogs, I haven’t met any cats yet so I’m not sure how I would react to those in the house. In my time living with my foster family I have learned kennel training (although I’m not a huge fan of hanging out in a kennel), I’m potty trained and do very well on a leash on walks. I tend to be timid when meeting new people, it takes me a bit to warm up but once I do we are best friends for life. I love to go on long walks or simply cuddling with my humans, my preferred sleeping spot is next to my human in bed. I’m working on e-collar training and am responding very well. I have a love for balls, bones, squeaky toys and frisbees.

Story
Koda is only 2 years old but she has had a pretty rough start, she was originally from Mexico where she was neglected and abused. I have had her for about 9 months and she has made incredible progress, her health has improved and so has her disposition. She has bloomed into a very cuddly and fun loving dog. She does need more socializing, and could benefit from more training, but she has a great deal of potential and so much love to give! Koda does have a bit of 'stranger danger', she is not aggressive, but she does bark at strangers and guests. She is very food motivated though, and she does calm down after a little while when around new people (especially if they have treats for her) She only barks at adults, and has been gentle and friendly towards any children she has interacted with. I think she would do really well and get over her stranger danger in a household that is social and often has friends over. Please contact me if you have any questions!

Story
Meet Jojo, the diamond in the rough who's been patiently waiting for his chance to shine! Despite spending some time at the shelter, Jojo's spirit remains unbroken, and his heart is as big as ever! Jojo has been a staff/volunteer favorite since the day he arrived with his soulful eyes. Though the shelter walls provide temporary refuge, Jojo dreams of a life beyond these confines- a life filled with laughter, companionship, and endless adventures. It is important to note that Jojo has some specific needs. He is a particular guy, meaning he might not get along with all animals or people right off the bat. He cannot live with cats or smaller animals as he can get too rough with them. So far he has been okay around other dogs in play groups but any introductions should be slow and supervised. He may also face some challenges when it comes to sharing possessions. However, Jojo is a quick learner and would benefit greatly from obedience training to help him become the best version of himself. With consistency and positive reinforcement, he's sure to excel and become the loyal companion you've always dreamed of!With each passing day, Jojo eagerly awaits the moment when he can finally find his forever family, a place where he can call home and shower his unconditional love upon those who cherish him. If you are ready to open your heart and home to a furry friend who will forever be grateful, then Jojo is the one for you! Primary Color: White Secondary Color: Brown Weight: 69 Age: 1yrs 4mths 1wks
