Nelly Mary

Rhodesian Ridgeback German Shepherd Dog

Female, 4 yrs 11 mos
Beverly Hills, CA
(when grown) Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
Good with kids, Good with dogs, Good with cats, Spayed or Neutered,
Nelly Mary is the sweetest 4-year-old petite Ridgeback Shepherd-mix, and she weighs 55-60 pounds. She is the friendliest dog ever - loves everybody she meets and her tail doesn't stop wagging. She loves going for walks, is great in the car and has no problem jumping in the back of the SUV. She is housebroken and knows how to use a doggie door. Mary behaves well when left alone and is not destructive. She did great during her vet visit (giving kisses to the doctor) and also does great at the groomer’s. This sweet girl is absolutely adorable and has a wonderful, cute personality that will put a smile on your face. She loves playing with toys - she flips them over, catches them, and she acts delighted at her own prowess. She is a medium-energy dog, loves running in the yard and chasing squirrels. She is not an escape artist and doesn't try to jump the fence. Mary is good with other dogs: she lives in a foster home with a few other dogs and does well with them, but has no interest in playing with any of them. She does wonderful with visitors to the house and is wonderful meeting people on walks. In general she is quiet at home and will only bark in warning. Overall, she is an easygoing, very happy girl. She will benefit from some leash training with her future owner. After years of suffering from a neglected ear infection, Mary was dumped at a shelter by her owners, who denied this poor girl the medical care she desperately needed. The infection had done irreparable damage to Mary's ear, and this sweet girl is now deaf in one ear. After we rescued Mary, she was finally able to undergo a TECA-BO (Total Ear Canal Ablation and Bulla Osteotomy) procedure. Unfortunately, Mary's ear was in such a state of disrepair that the only option for the vet was to remove the infected tissue entirely. Mary's entire ear canal and middle ear were removed, leaving only the ear flap. As a result, Mary is now deaf in one ear. We are devastated that the neglect by Mary's careless former owners has caused her irreparable harm. Overall, Mary is a great dog - an easygoing, happy girl - and someone will be fortunate to have her in their life. Mary is located in Los Angeles. If interested in her please submit an application on our website, For questions on Mary please email us at The adoption fee for Mary is $300.

Spaniel (Unknown Type)

Male, 2 yrs 2 mos
Los Angeles, CA
(when grown) Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
Not good with kids, Not good with dogs, Not good with cats, Needs experienced adopter, Spayed or Neutered,
Jesse came to SSRI from a shelter. He was listed as an English Springer Spaniel yet most likely is a sprocker (cocker/springer mix). He comes in at a whooping 32 pounds and is estimated to be around 2/3 years old. He is a goofy boy in a fun way, and once he settles in, he is a charmer. He loves to cuddle with his people, loves car rides and is a great hiker.  He's a good little travel buddy.  Jesse loves toys, especially squeaky stuffies.  The ideal home for Jesse is one that will give him mental stimulation and physical exercise daily in addition to continuing the obedience training he has been receiving with a professional trainer. He can walk on a leash and will respond to corrections when he sees something that is of high interest to him. He prefers to be an adult/pet only home. He is housetrained and is current on vaccinations. He will need an obedience savvy home to help him be the best dog he can be. If you are interested in Jesse, please complete the application below and a volunteer will reach out to you.

Hound (Unknown Type) German Shepherd Dog

Female, 9 yrs 1 mo
Beverly Hills, CA
(when grown) Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
Good with kids, Not good with dogs, Needs experienced adopter,
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.

German Shepherd Dog

Male, 6 yrs 2 mos
Beverly Hills, CA
(when grown) Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
Good with kids, Spayed or Neutered,
King is a very sweet and friendly 6 year-old White German Shepherd. He weighs about 75 pounds and needs to gain a few more pounds to be at his perfect weight. He spent almost two years at a shelter, which is very unusual, since shelters are in crisis after the pandemic. The volunteers and shelter staff really liked King and they did their best to extend his time so he wouldn't get put to sleep. While at the shelter, he was very shy and would hide in the back of his kennel when adopters walked by, and that’s the reason why he couldn't find a home: no one got a chance to see him! He is pretty well-behaved in his foster home, not showing any aggression towards people or around food, and having no problem when toys are taken away from him. He is crate-trained and feels safe there, so much so that if the crate door is open, you will find him resting inside the crate by his choice. In his foster home he sleeps in the crate all night and doesn’t make a sound. King loves toys, enjoys carrying them around, and he will bring his toy to his person to initiate a game. He loves attention, so when he wants some attention he will come nudge his person with his nose. He is very gentle with his toys - he licks them , sleeps with them, but doesn’t destroy them. He is an alert dog and will bark if he hears noises. He is good with visitors, too; As long as the door to the yard is open, he goes outside to do his business. In his foster home he has access to the outdoors all day, so he’s had no accidents indoors. . Before ending up at the shelter, King belonged for four years to a family with kids. He was a yard dog, never taken for a walk during all that time, which is the reason for his being shy and skittish outdoors. He never got a chance to learn. We take him out for walks now, but - he is afraid of cars and trucks, so he pulls on the leash to go back home, but slowly, with time and patience, he will learn and become a more confident dog. King is a dominant male. He did ok with submissive dogs, but since all his life , he lived as only dog, so probably best home forhim to be an only dog. Overall, King is a sweet dog that was not given any chance to enjoy life. His world was his yard, and that’s all he knew. Now his life has changed and he has started to learn new things, like the fact that there’s a big world out there and so many things to learn. Even though he is slightly older, it is never too late to learn.
