Meet friendly Teddy! Teddy is a goofy boy, who loves being by your side and showing off his toys. He rides great in the car and makes everyone smile with his big heart and lovable nature. He is a terrific walking companion and would love to take you on neighborhood walks. Around 3 years old, Teddy has a handsome, chocolate brindle coat and soulful eyes. He weighs 67 pounds and is a mixed bully breed. When kenneled, he has separation anxiety, so he is looking for a patient, understanding adopter. Teddy is not good with small dogs or cats, but is wonderful with people. If you live in southern California and would like to meet Teddy, please fill out an application on Dream Team Angels Rescue's website: http://www.dreamteamangelsrescue.com/adoptform.html Teddy is located in the Temecula/Wildomar area of California (Riverside County).

Story
Robert is and incredibly good dog: quiet, affectionate, low-maintenance (meaning he is not demanding). He is around 4-6 years old and weighs 65-70 pounds. He enjoys sun bathing and does well with other dogs. Rescued as a stray, Robert is grateful to have a roof over his head and be an indoor pet. He is crate-trained, good-natured, clean and well-behaved. He obeys well and knows "sit" and "high-five." He is a pretty mellow and low-key guy. Robert is a wonderful dog with an equally lovely temperament to match! He will make an excellent companion. His adoption fee is $295.

WE ARE NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS for SWEET BUDDY (we now call him Waffles)!! This boy is perfection! He loves people, kids, other dogs, just a sweet temperament! Buddy was found as a puppy in the middle of the road in the middle of nowhere! The finder picked him and kept him for a few moths, but he himself was not stable and became homeless, so surrendered Buddy to rescue. Unfortunately we didn't even have a foster home for him to go to so Buddy has been stuck in boarding with no family. This sweet boy is ready for his happily ever after family he deserves! The VERY first step is completing an application on-line.

If you are interested in one of our dogs, please complete an application on line at www.ahome4everrescue.org Prince is a wonderful dog who was placed on the euth list because he had lost weight.   After being rescued from the shelter and placed in a loving home he regained his weight and became the happy dog he  was meant to be.   He still suffers from anxiety and will need to be in a home that will continue his training as he regains confidence.  He will do best in a home with an experienced owner.   If you are interested in Prince please complete an application on line at www.ahome4everrescue.org.  --- Come meet our dogs on Saturdays at PetSmart in Costa Mesa from 11:30-2:30. All A Home 4 Ever Rescue dogs receive a wellness exam by our veterinarian and are up to date with vaccinations. They are spayed or neutered and microchipped before they go to their adoptive families.

Story
Henry came to us by way of the SEAACA animal shelter.  When he arrived at the shelter two weeks prior, he was in pretty terrible shape.  His ears were destroyed by fly strikes, and his entire muzzle was covered in scabs/sores.  He waited for two weeks, but nobody ever claimed him, and he wasn't adopted.  We were able to step in and save him from taking his final walk. Henry is literally one of the calmest boxers we have ever seen. He's pretty solid, but so so so tender. He has those beautiful, soulful, amber eyes.  It's obvious that Henry wasn't dealt the best hand early in his life, and he probably spent most of his time outdoors. Our vet examined him thoroughly and ran all of the appropriate tests.  He believes Henry to be about 3 years old, but we are estimated between 3-5 just to be safe (his teeth indicate closer to 3).  He really just wants to be your couch buddy.  Do you have space?  If so, please fill out an adoption application located here:  Adopt (rrboxerrescue.org)April 10, 2024, 6:37 pm

Story
Pete is a 2.5 year old male Must be an only dog Meet Pete! Isn't he a hunk!?!?!?! Pete came to us from the Riverside shelter. He has been with us since just before Thanksgiving and we have gotten to know a lot about him. &#226&#128&#139 Pete is a tender hearted guy who just wants to snuggle and love his humans. He is very affectionate with people he knows, but it's obvious he's had his heart broken in his past, so he is very guarded with his heart. He needs humans who are patient and let him love you slowly (we're talking probably within an hour, not just during a 20 minute meet and greet) He takes a little bit of time to get comfortable with new people and dogs. He is currently fostered with a lot of dogs. He co-exists with them just fine and is relatively indifferent to them...but he seems to be having some problems being indifferent on his meet and greets, when it comes to other dogs. It's as if he suddenly gets nervous, so going slow and doing everything right is a must! He needs a home with no other dogs. He is definitely potty trained and very well mannered. He will definitely be on Santa's nice list. He is crate trained, but he is so good that his foster mom doesn't crate him. He does great with kids but due to his behavior around other dogs, we are not comfortable placing him with kids at this time.    He really wants to be home for the holidays. Is that your home? If so, please fill out an app and set up a meet and greet. He would make a great apartment dog. As he is not a barker!   Available from R&R Boxer Rescue:  Pete (rrboxerrescue.org)April 10, 2024, 6:37 pm
