Meet Nougat! He's a happy-go-lucky boy rescued from a high-kill shelter where he didn't know that he was in danger of euthanasia. He's fantastic with other dogs and will welcome you with a wiggly-waggly dance. Nougat would be a great companion for a family with an active lifestyle who has an existing dog(s) or where he'll be able to get together regularly with other dogs. At the end of the day, he'd love to snuggle up with you and hear all about it. Please complete an Adoption Application if you're interested in meeting sweet Nougat.

Story
The Colonel has a pretty rough life before coming into Dawg Squad. You can read all about it here https://dawgsquad.org/professor-plum-and-colonel-mustard/ But right now we want to tell you how great he is. The Colonel is quiet, confident and a genuinely nice guy. He catches on quickly and is completely housebroken and crate trained. The Colonel wants nothing more than to be loved and pet and his biggest thing is to sit on your lap and cuddle. When he is outside, and his Foster Mom goes out to call him in, he comes running with a goofy smile on his face and gives her a big hug. He was starved for so long that he literally jumps up and down anticipating breakfast and dinner. Mealtime is his happiest time of the day. Colonel is trying to understand the concept of “fetch” but for now, he is just happy to be running after a ball and then chewing on it for a bit. Not quite sure if he will ever want to bring a ball back, but he’s happy and that’s what counts. Colonel thinks it is his job to escort The Professor to his crate when it’s time for bed. We think he might have been protective over his smaller “brother” in his previous life. This is a really cool dog. He’s goofy and friendly and whoever adopts him is going to spend a lot of time laughing and cuddling. The Colonel brings out the best in a person

Text or email only for direct contact with rescuer located in Lancaster approved for same day adoption (661)609-2186 memeco635@gmail.com Hey guys, my name is Benson. My previous owner surrendered me after she got pregnant and didn’t have time for me anymore. I spent most of my life in a black wire crate because my Previous Owners bought me from a breeder without realizing They'd be going back to work and were only home 10 hours a day, and most of that time we spent sleeping. when I first got to the rescue, I had never touched grass, I had never been around other dogs I had never worn a collar or been led by a leash so the first couple months was just experiencing basic things normal dogs get to experience. I’m a very quiet most say I have the personality of an old man even though I’m not even a year old yet. I’m still getting used to rambunctious dogs and playful big dogs I understand they want to play I just don’t know how to play, but I absolutely love people, and I tried to express playfulness with them, but with patient love and time I could regain my puppyhood but for now, I am just trying to learn how to be a dog and it would be amazing if I could get that one on one from a forever family who could allow me to just be a dog in my own time if you think that sounds like you please contact my rescuer and schedule a time to meet I am approved for Same day adoption and I’m pretty sure I could win you over with my dashing good looks! I look forward to hearing from you!

Story
Meet Top!  He is so precious! He is a 4 year old that was rescued from a dog meat farm in South Korea.  We have partners we work with there that pull these dogs from the worst horrors imaginable.  Many of these dogs start off in horrific puppy mill type facilities on tiny rabbit cage size wire crates in complete filth.  If they are not sold at 6 or 8 weeks then they either stay for a couple years to be used to breed more and then are sold off to the meat trade, or they are sold off right away.  Jindo's and Tosa's are the most common meat type dogs, and are very commonly bred specifically for their meat and the meat farms also act as breeding farms until they reach a good age and weight. South Korea is one of the only countries that actually farms dogs for their meat.   Many restaurants will serve a dish called " bosintang ", which stands for "dog meat soup". It's a popular dish in South  Korea,  and is said to act as an aphrodisiac for men.    Little dogs are used for elixirs and potions.  The younger generation is mostly against this practice and many choose to not eat them, and we can only hope in time with education and generations of change that an end will come to this horrific trade.  Top and some of his friends have been flown here for a chance at a future and a real life.  These are miracle dogs that they are alive today.  Top is being fostered and his adoption is being handled directly with the foster home.  Please reach out to Moonsun at 323-403-6207.
