We are very please to present to you....... ROCKY! Rocky is a sweetie pie with the biggest heart - ready for your home! He is a social butterfly that just loves to be part of the party. He has shown nothing but love to humans, kids and other dogs. Unfortunately, Rocky would not be good in a home with small dogs or cats, however, that doesn't mean that the paw-fect home isn't out there! Rocky's ideal day consists of playing with his toys, going on a great walk with his people and then chillaxing until the sun goes down and the moon comes up! We would love for you to meet Rocky!

Wally is a two-year-old dog who has had the luxury of getting trained by one of the best trainers in Los Angeles- the K9 committee. Wally was with a family that didn't set him up for success, and he developed some fearful traits and anxiety. He's doing so much better and ready for his forever family. Wally likes bonding with one or two people and prefers a calm home. He gets along well with other dogs. Please visit our website to learn more about this amazing pet and to see other available dogs.

This adorable beautiful girl is Figgy. Figgy is a 1 1/2 yr old Australian Kelpi and Chihuahua mix. She’s a perfect medium size dog at 30 lbs. She is the smartest dog. She learns tricks so fast it’s amazing. She’s obsessed with her toys and is the best fetch player. She loves being outside on her walks and playing in the yard. So we want her to be adopted yo a very active outdoors person. She is part of a bonded pair with her little foster sibling Grizzlzy who she’s been with for 8 mos now. They are so fun and always playing with each other. They are a perfect pair for someone wanting a bonded pair of pups who will be perfect leaving home while being away from the house. All dogs do better with a buddy, so why not adopt a pair who are already perfect together. If you’d like to meet Figgy and Grizzly, please fill out our adoption application on out website

Good with dogs, Spayed or Neutered,
Please note that we are ONLY accepting applications from homes with at least one calm dog for Luke. To be successful, I must have the following: • Experienced, calm handler • back yard • Another dog who is calm to play with • Crate to sleep in • Doggie door Hi, I’m Luke! I’m a timid, reserved, adorable boy. I take a while to warm up to a new place. My favorite things are quiet walks with my pack, resting on a nice comfy dog bed, and playing with my doggie friends. I’ve been in training recently and walk nicely on a leash, can walk on a treadmill, speak doggie door, have excellent house manners, don’t help myself to furniture, take treats gently, ride nicely in a car, like to chase balls but don’t bring them back. I am told I’m an excellent companion, I’m not sure what that means, but I do love my trainer. I’m sure I will love you with the proper introductions, too. I like to sleep in a crate at night, and I would love a house with good structure, an experienced dog person who can maintain my training, and another calm dog in the household is a must. I will thrive in an adult-only household with consistency, regular exercise, and no cats. I don’t like strangers and would prefer not to be in places with many people. I’m shy, remember? I should also share that I’m on meds for anxiety that are helping me to feel so much better!
