Story
Nikki is the sweetest and friendliest 9-year-old Hound x German Shepherd-mix female, and she weighs 75 pounds. She absolutely loves people, always has a big smile on her face, and is very affectionate. She is one of those dogs that just loves to be at her person’s side. Nikki is housebroken and crate-trained, but she needs a home with no other dogs. She is excellent on leash, walking right by her person, and behaves very mannerly around the public. She is a trained dog – she knows “Heel”, “Sit”, “Stay”, “Come” and “Down”. Also, she has done an agility course and loved it. Nikki is great in the car - she has no problem jumping into the back of a SUV - and also does well during grooming. Nikki was owned by an elderly man who had saved her from one of the high-kill shelters in 2015. She was his service dog and they lived in a retirement home together. Sadly, her owner had a terminal illness and died during the pandemic of 2019, so Nikki has been looking for a forever home ever since. Nikki is a very gentle, kind soul, very calm in the house and a velcro dog that follows her person around. She will be a wonderful companion for someone who is older and home a lot. What type of home does Nikki need? • A household with or without kids, as she loves everyone • Someone who is home a lot • A home where she can be an only-dog • Since she is very agile and can jump, a yard that is enclosed by a min. 6-ft. tall fence We are located in Los Angeles. If interested in Nikki please submit an application on our website, www.angelsbarkrescue.org For questions on Nikki please email us at: angelsbarkdogrescue@gmail.com

Story
Courtesy Post for Rovers Retreat Rescue Organization AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION💞 Located in Los Angeles Rescued from a home that had him chained all day. Kramer is a 2-year-old English Setter male weighing 55 pounds. He is a very sweet, friendly, cuddly and loving dog. Being young and active, he needs an active home with daily activities like walks, hikes or dog park visits. He loves playing with other dogs, so a home with another playful dog would be great or an owner who likes to go to dog parks. Kramer also loves spending time in the yard, chasing birds and squirrels. He lives in a foster home with small- and large-dogs and does well with all of them. He tries to initiate play with the small dogs, but his foster-friends are slightly older and can’t keep up with him. Handsome Kramer much enjoys going for walks but pulls a bit on the leash, so he will need some leash training with his future owner. He is active and playful during the day and pretty calm in the evenings: after dark, he just lies down and sleeps. Kramer is housebroken, knows how to use a doggie door to go in and out all day. In addition, he is great with visitors and has no guarding issues around food or toys. Overall, Kramer is a wonderful dog that just needs an active home. A house with a yard would be perfect for him, so he can run, play, and chase birds. However, he is obsessed with cats, so a cat-free home will be best for him.

Story
Benjamin has been through so much he was dumped at a high kill shelter then to a vet for care then was adopted and because he lunged at a person on a scooter the owners felt he was a liability. The truth Benjamin is a sweet smart amazing dog who can be a little territorial of his family in the house. He is small and very controllable. He is a sweet loving dog and deserves a good home who wants to do a little training and he will be fine. To adopt go to Eloiserescue.org located in West Hollywood, ca no out of state adoptions.
