Story
Buzz is so cute - he looks like a dog that should be in the movies! His interesting mix gets him attention wherever he goes. Buzz is amazing with kids and other dogs and he likes to spend his time with his people. He is mostly chill but occasionally loves to play and cuddle. He is very quiet, and we haven’t heard him bark once yet! Buzz is house trained and he responds well to verbal corrections; he doesn’t really know any commands yet, but he is learning not to jump up on people and is working on his “sit” command. According to his foster family, Buzz is “the best and easiest dog that we have ever fostered, not to mention he is also the cutest pup.” Buzz’s perfect family will have the time and patience to continue teaching him how to be the very best pup he can be!

Story
Hi I'm Coco! I'm an adorable little dude-6 months old around 8 lbs. I am great with dogs and cats. I am also neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. I am crate trained and working hard on my potty training! Cuddling with my cat foster siblings is my favorite activity. I can't wait to meet you! *please note All of our dogs are in private foster homes. Once you fill out an application it will be screened by our volunteer adoption team. From there, if your application looks like a good fit for the particular dog, it will be sent to the foster where you can ask all the questions you would like and schedule a meet and greet. We do not transport our dogs. If you apply from out of state we do request you come to Los Angeles to meet us and fly home in cabin or drive. www.apurposefulrescue.org
