Weezer is about a year old. He was originally adopted out of South LA Shelter as a very young pup. Unfortunately, the woman that had adopted him hit some hard times and had to move in with relatives that would not allow her to bring her dogs with her. Weezer is a clown, he has the ability to make you smile even when you are having a challenging day. I told him he should be a therapy dog! He is great with other dogs, cats, kids, everyone. He appears to be a Finnish Spitz/Chihuahua mix, that’s the only explanation for his fox looking face. He is great in the car, on the leash and sleeping in his crate. We are working on house training. He is neutered, micro-chipped, current on vaccines and in good health.

Bruno is a Chihuahua Jack Russell mix. He is a compact little dude. He is great with cats & dogs. He is approximately 3 years old and weighs about 6 lbs.
Bruno was found running in the streets of Los Angeles. He was dirty, scared, hungry and exhausted. Luckily a volunteer got him cornered so we could catch him. He has suffered some emotional trauma and is still working on getting over his fear of men and people touching his collar/neck area. He is healthy, very loving once he gets to know you and he is playful. He is crate trained and sleeps through the night.
He needs a home that is willing to be patient with him and help him rebuild his trust.
Update 5/2/12: The kittens are doing great. They are eating well, getting very social and as cute as can be. Louis is the runt, he’s all black with short hair. Alice is the fluffier of the two and she has little white feet.
The two black kittens shown here were recently found in a parking lot at Kahoot’s Feed Store in Chatsworth. Luckily the staff know us very well and have us on speed dial. We are now bottle feeding these two little kitties and they will be available for adoption once they are weaned off the bottle. One male and one female. They are between 3-4 weeks old now.
Please note that we often have bottle babies, young kittens and adult cats. We also have ferals that would make great barn cats, mousers, gopher hunters, etc… If you or anyone you know is interested in adopting a cat or kitten please call us and we can give you more details on who we have available.
They are a bonded pair and it would be wonderful to see them adopted together. They started this roller coaster journey together so they do find comfort in each other.
They are both about a year old, at most. Both are very tiny, Arnold is around 7 lbs. and Dinky is at least a pound or two less.
They are both neutered, vaccinated, micro-chipped and ready for a forever home.
The puppies made their debut this past weekend. The girls have both gone to wonderful homes. The boys are still available but we are sure these little heartbreakers will go fast. They were born March 19th at West Valley Animal Shelter. We pulled mom and kids out on the 21st of March and everyone is healthy, vaccinated and ready to go. We do not know what breed dad was. He was a love’em & leave’em type so we will never know. But Winter seems to be a Spaniel mix. Her disposition is great and her pups are equally mellow and loving.
Winter was pulled from West Valley Shelter recently with her 4 newborn pups. She was found as a stray, dirty, hungry and scared. She is about a year old at most, house trained, great with cats & other dogs, great with kids. We nicknamed her “Teen Mom” because she was way too young to have had kids.
We believe she is a Spaniel mix, about a year old, healthy, and weighs about 16 lbs.
She is now done with nursing her pups and is available for adoption.
Bacon is a gentle giant. He is not a barker, great with kids, very obedient and a victim of circumstance. Bacon needs a new home. He has only known one place as home since he was a tiny pup. This transition is going to be very confusing and stressful for Bacon. His family is holding on to him as long as they can while we help him find a new home. He is great with other dogs and would make an excellent family dog. Please consider adding Bacon to your family. This big boy does not deserve to be left behind. He is approx. 6 years old, healthy, house trained, current on vaccines, neutered and chipped.
Omie is about 2 years old, male, neutered, current on his vaccines, so unique and handsome, I have no idea what type of mix he is.
Poor Omie has had a turbulent life. He was adopted from a rescue group to a woman and her fiance. They broke up, woman kept the dog but didn’t give him any time. He had some behavioral issues so she sent him to several “trainers” but things were still not going smoothly for her and Omie. I never met the woman or the dog, but from what I do know, there was probably a lot of emotional baggage from the woman that was transferring to the dog. Omie was sent to live with the woman’s mother who has a St. Bernard that Omie does not get along with. Omie is very tense and confused. The woman who adopted him as a puppy has now moved out of state and he is left with his adopted grandmother who has a very busy schedule and means well but does not have any time for Omnie. This poor dog needs somewhere to plant some roots! He is playful, great on a leash and desperate for some stability. To learn more about Omie please contact Steve Barker at email@example.com or call 310-926-7865
Winston has a somewhat complicated rescue story. He was pulled from the shelter, somehow he injured both of his ACLs and required surgery, we don’t know if this happened after he was out of the shelter or before he entered the shelter. He then spent almost a year in boarding at a local vet’s office where his dog walker came by to walk him everyday. Yes, it’s a bit confusing but this is the information we have so far. The bottom line is Winston had a lot of people worried about him and nobody had the space to take him into their home. So our partners at GW Stables said that he could come there while we find a suitable foster for him. He is doing very well, adjusting quickly to the ranch life and we are easing him into a different environment cautiously. We don’t know much about Winston other than he loves all people and just wants to cuddle in your lap like a kitten. He seems to be very smart, taking direction quickly, not sure how he is with other dogs at this time. Coming out of boarding after so long, it could mean that he needs to rebuild his social skills.
He is not a barker. He is playful. Great in the car. As we learn more about him we will update his information.
Lucky Leo was hit by a car several weeks ago in South Los Angeles. Luckily he survived and only suffered a fractured hip. He is recovering nicely and is currently with a foster family. He is VERY good in the house, no accidents, extremely loyal companion, just wants to be wherever his foster mom is. He is in a house with 3 young children so he is fine with kids.
G Jack was in the North Central Shelter near Downtown LA. He is massive! He is a bit intimidating because of his size and that sometimes works against the poor guy. He has only shown kindness and playfulness but being so large I am not sure he should go into a home with young children. He could easily knock someone over if he was excited and trying to play. He is clumsy…it adds to his charm.
He was brought into the shelter as a stray but he had a chip so they listed him as “Possible Owner” but nobody came to claim him. He caught the attention of a fellow rescuer who has a passion for huge & misunderstood dogs. She made it her mission to network G Jack and do her best to get him out of the shelter alive.
He is currently 100lbs but he is under weight. He is great in the car, romps around the yard like an oversized bunny, good with little dogs, doesn’t seem to show interest in cats, not a barker, has a nice howl when coyotes or sirens inspire him and he is starting to come out of his shell and ask for affection.
**I marked “needs experienced adopter” because G Jack is big and extremely strong. We do not know his history so we can only give the information based on what we have seen first hand. He needs an experienced owner that is familiar with strong bully breeds. We choose to be cautious because we do not want to set any of our dogs up to fail. We want them to go into a forever home and thrive. If you would like to know more or see more of G Jack check out our Facebook page, we post his progress everyday.
We always have semi-feral, healthy kittens and cats that are looking to be relocated to a better environment. This is part of our independent feral cat program. We are always in need of new homes for some of these cats. We do release them where they are trapped when there is someone committed to feeding them and it’s not a dangerous area but we do not like to release them in areas that are too unstable. Please consider taking on a Mouser. They patrol your property, help with rodents & gophers and are a joy to watch hunt & sunbathe.
Roscoe is an amazing guy. He is very calm, responsive, smart and grateful for love & companionship. He is about 3-4 years old, neutered, great with other dogs and loves people. He is so happy to go for walks, he does the full body wag! He is currently in boarding with a local trainer and he is more than ready for his forever home. He’s a big gentle boy.
Rocco is a darling boy we recently had the pleasure of meeting. Rocco is under the care of a trainer we know and he is more than ready to start the next chapter in his life…a place to call home, a family of his own. Rocco is about 4-5 years old, good with other dogs, good on the leash, house trained, mellow and loving. Rocco would make a great companion for anyone willing to open their heart & home to him. He is a big sniffer, he loves his walks and the huge smile says it all.
Gizmo’s owner died about 3 weeks ago leaving behind Gizmo and his daughter Gigi. Gizmo is approximately 4 years old, sweet, playful, loving, great with other dogs and great with cats. He is fine with being crated and fine out of the crate. He is a complete joy. He has one blue eye and a slight under bite that really adds to his handsome look.
Lady Di was rescued from West Valley Shelter after her former owners surrendered her stating they could no longer afford to feed her. The shelter’s vet staff nursed her back to a healthy weight and took care of her for a couple of months. Then she came to us. She is wonderful! She is very willing, no vices, great under saddle, fine with other horses, perfect for an intermediate to experienced rider. She is approximately 7-8 years old, healthy, beautiful and graceful. To learn more about Lady Di please contact Gloria at 818-523-4945. We are asking for an adoption fee of $1,200. We do not want her going somewhere where she will be worked and then dumped. We are interested in only a forever home.
