Story
Sweet sweet Rambo!! What can we say?? ..where do we begin?  Rambo is looking for a home where he will be allowed to shine on his own time frame.  With love and patience his true personality will come out and he will be the best dog anyone could ever ask for if just given that chance.  He joined us after his owner died.  He was one of four dogs left behind, no one aware dogs were unattended.  His father died still tied to his chain.  He and his brother broke free.  When help arrived he watched his mother cut off her chain and hauled off on a catch pole, then was humanely trapped a week later, leaving his brother Ruckus behind to fend for himself alone.  Unfortunately, his mother was riddled with cancer so was put to rest at the shelter.  Rambo struggled with the shelter setting, upheaval of his life, intorductions and pepole handling.  Once his brother Ruckus was secured we went to get Rambo too.  Rambo, who had been tentative about people could not be happier to see Ruckus and their rehab began together.   We believe Rambo and Ruckus had an okay beginning, loved and cared for, maybe not the way we would like but they welcome new people nicely especially if treats or a doggy bone are involved. Rambo is a teddy bear with the most innocent soulful eyes  He enjoys his toys, especially his special balls.  He prefers stability, but will go with the flow!  He chills very nicely and would appreciate a calm home where someone is home a lot, a friend to read a book with or to watch TV.  A backyard to explore under supervision would be ideal.   He's down for an adventure and loves car rides.  He enjoys walks and adjusts well to new surroundings and outings.  He can still be tentative if people move too fast or something unexpected startles him.  Rambo has done well with some dogs, mostly female but is selective on who can be in his circle of friends but would love to be adopted with his bro Ruckus (please ask about him) but he understands that may not be possible for it would take a very very special family to welcome 2 dogs at once.  However, Ruckus is a much more subdued home body kinda guy so both makes for perfect home and out/about.  WOW!! What a great fairytale that would be!?  Can he come live with and love you??  Please pick Rambo!! Flight Risk: do not leave unattended in a yard, crate training is a must when you are gone, tight grip on the leash is a must on adventures.

Sweet sweet Ruckus!! What can we say?? ..where do we begin?  Ruckus is looking for a home where he will be allowed to shine on his own time frame.  With love and patience his true personality will come out and he will be the best dog anyone could ever ask for if just given that chance.  He joined us after his owner died.  He was one of four dogs left behind, no one aware dogs were unattended.  His father died still tied to his chain.  He and his brother broke free.  When help arrived he watched his mother cut off her chain and hauled off on a catch pole then his brother trapped.  He was the last one left and was often seen sleeping on or next to his dad's body.  Gratefully a concerned neighbor reached out and we developed a plan to get him safe.  Unfortunately, his mother was riddled with cancer so was put to rest at the shelter.  His brother had also been taken to the shelter and was not doing well.  We picked his brother up and started the healing process for both.  That reunion was something else.  Ruckus went from scared, withdrawn and aloof to free.  Rambo, who had been tentative about people could not be happier to see Ruckus and their rehab began together.   We believe Ruckus and Rambo had an okay beginning, loved and cared for, maybe not the way we would like but they welcome new people nicely especially if treats or a doggy bone are involved. Ruckus is a teddy bear with the most innocent soulful eyes  Ruckus likes stability, nothing wrong with that!  He chills very nicely and would appreciate a calm home where someone is home a lot, a friend to read a book with or to watch TV.  A backyard to explore under supervision would be ideal.   He's a homebody as new/busy situations make him a bit nervous.  Eventually leashed walks around the block or  where it isn’t too busy could be enjoyable. He doesn’t need to go shopping, or to community/neighborhood events.. Ruckus can probably be talked into a ride in the car to a quiet cabin in the mountains with his favorite person who would give him quick leashed potty breaks… that’s all he would require. Sounds like the perfect easy dog, right?!  Ruckus would really really love to be chosen along with his brother Rambo (please ask about him) but he understands that may not be possible for it would take a very very special family to welcome 2 dogs at once.  However, Rambo is a much more outgoing and adventerous guy so both makes for perfect home and out/about.  WOW!! What a great fairytale that would be!?  Can he come live with and love you??  Please pick Ruckus!! Flight Risk: do not leave unattended in a yard, crated when when you are gone, tight grip on the leash is a must on adventures. Must be aware of open doors and windows.  NEVER off leash in unfenced areas.To adopt: https://petstablished.com/adoption_form/37765/genericTo foster: https://petstablished.com/foster_form/37764/genericEmail: awayhomefordogs@gmail.com ##1338937##

Meet your New Best Friend! If you would like to reserve this doggie and have us bring them to the event of your choice for you to meet first, you can do so by paying a non-refundable deposit of $50 to our Venmo or Zelle account (619-918 2142 in the name of Amazing Dogs; pls indicate your telephone number). This deposit will go towards the adoption fee. After receipt of your deposit, we will confirm your reservation and list the doggie on our website as ‘Pending Adoption’. If you decide not to adopt one of our Amazing Dogs, the $50 is considered a compensation for the transportation costs. All our doggies come with their health record and have received all necessary medical care, which includes (but is not limited to) all vaccines, de-wormer, anti-flea/tick medication, microchip and of course spay/neuter surgery. Our adoption fee is $500. Only in California, the fee for babies under a year old is $600. Please consider this not as a price you pay for the doggie, but as a (tax-deductible) donation to our charity, so we can continue our work and take care of the 250+ dogs in our shelter. Read more about why we charge adoption fees here: https://amazingdogs.org/adoption-fees/ If you have any additional inquiries, please don't hesitate to reach out to us via call or text.

Story
Nacho was impounded at the shelter along with a dozen plus cats and another dog. He sat at the shelter for weeks waiting for someone to adopt him. Unfortunately he was overlooked and became depressed. When people are looking to adopt animals from shelters in most circumstances they are walking right past senior pets and if your black that's a double whammy. Nacho is such a lovely chap who is good with everyone, he is in a foster home with other dogs and people and is so chill and happy to be in a home. He is working his way up to taking longer walks to rebuild his leg muscles after lingering in the shelter kennel. Did we tell you Nacho is a petite Lab at only 46 lbs.?
