Adoptable Dogs

Peanut
Male, Terrier mix
Age: approximately 1 year old
Size: approximately 20 pounds

Peanut’s mom Sunny, was a survivor of the meat trade in China and Peanut was born in our shelter there after Sunny was rescued. He was the only one to survive out of the litter and was born with the Canine Distemper Virus, which caused birth defects in his legs. Peanut’s hind leg was damaged during birth so when he arrived at the rescue it had to be amputated. Despite the difficult journey, he is still very happy and shows no signs that having only three legs will slow him down at all. He gets along with other dogs and enjoys making new friends wherever he goes. While in the rescue, Peanut developed some anxiety with strangers and became quite shy with people he did not know. He has been working with an experienced trainer for a couple of months now and has overcome his fears, making him ready for his fur-ever home. With the people he knows, he is extremely loving. You will be greeted with kisses and tail wags and an immense amount of appreciation for saving him. He is potty trained and very well behaved in a home. Peanut is currently in a foster home, but is still available for adoption.

Gigi
Female, Terrier Mix
Age: approximately 2 years old
Size: approximately 20 pounds

Gigi was rescued out of a South Korean slaughterhouse and has now been with us the longest out of the other dogs. When she first arrived she was still very unsure of humans, but has really come out of her shell with the ones she knows. She loves to jump up into your arms and be held as she smothers you with kisses. She absolutely loves other dogs so she can be placed with any group within the rescue and she is good with cats too. It was discovered that she has a knack for helping shy dogs overcome their fears, especially puppies, and has become a surrogate mother as they begin their new lives in the facility. Gigi is very active and can frequently be seen running around with friends in tow. Initially, she had a lot of trouble on a leash because she was afraid of the noises from cars and construction on her walks. She has made a lot of progress since her arrival and will calmly walk by the side of someone she trusts. While she is still a little nervous in a car, in a home she is extremely well behaved. She simply wants to be by your side, does not make much noise, and loves to cuddle throughout the night. Gigi is one of the sweetest and smartest dogs we have ever had at our rescue.

Napa
Female, mixed breed
Age: approximately 10 months old
Size: approximately 14 pounds

Napa’s parents were rescued from the meat trade in China and she was born in our shelter there. She is playful with other dogs and is learning how to love humans. After arriving in Los Angeles, she was not sure what to expect when a human approached her, but now runs up to greet the ones she knows. She would be great for a home with other dogs and will just need a little time to get to know you.

Angel
Female, mixed breed
Age: approximately 10 months old
Size: approximately 14 pounds

Angel’s parents were rescued from the meat trade in China and she was born in our shelter there. Her best friend Napa is slowly showing Angel that people are nothing to worry about anymore. With each day she is becoming more trusting after watching others. After barking to let you know how tough she is, she will give you small kisses on your hand before running away. She adores other dogs and even though she was born without a front paw, it does not stop her from spending most of her time wrestling with her friends.

Copper (Gray)
Female, American Pit Bull Terrier mix
Age: approximately 2 years old
Size: approximately 40 pounds

Copper was saved from a South Korean slaughterhouse. She developed a mild skin issue due to the conditions she was kept in, but with a little treatment and time, her hair is completely growing back again. Despite what she has been through, Copper is an amazing animal. She is loving and extremely playful with people and other dogs. With so much energy, she needs someone who has an active lifestyle and a large yard to keep her happy. Please consider coming in to the rescue to take her on a walk and you might just meet your new best friend.

Venus
Female, mixed breed
Age: approximately 1-2 years old
Size: approximately 18 pounds

Venus was saved from the meat trade in Cambodia. When she first arrived five months ago, she was very shy and suffered from severe anxiety. Understandably, she felt threatened by other dogs and people and would shriek when she was stressed. A few people were able to break through her walls and she became very sweet with them, but her anxiety remained. She was put in a long-term training program and just returned to the rescue. She has greatly improved and is wonderful with people. She is no longer afraid of strangers and unlike before, she will gladly go on walks even with those she has never met. She loves to give kisses, receive belly rubs, and be held. Venus is eager for love and to give love back.

Spirit
Male, Basenji mix
Age: approximately 1 year old
Size: approximately 27 pounds

Spirit was rescued from a slaughterhouse in Cambodia. He experienced some of the worst of the meat trade. He was bound by wire while both of his front paws were cut off. This is not done cleanly and obviously leaves the animal in incredibly pain. From this slaughterhouse, Spirit was the only one to survive this torture. After surgery, Spirit is adjusting to his new situation very well and when the healing process is complete, he will be fitted for prosthetics. Spirit can still be a little shy, but is now very easy going and loving. He is seeking a forever home that can give him plenty of love and care. Please consider aiding in his recovery by making him a member of your family.

Duncan
Male, Basenji mix
Age: approximately 1 year old
Size: approximately 17 pounds

Duncan was rescued from a slaughterhouse in Cambodia. While still in Asia, Duncan was tied up by his back legs and beaten. After being saved, he slowly began to heal mentally and physically. At times, he is still a little off balance, but it in no way gets him down. Duncan still runs around and wrestles with his friends. With people, he has no issues whatsoever. He is so grateful to be saved that he shows his appreciation to everyone he meets. He loves to dish out kisses and be cuddled. Duncan would be perfectly content to sit on someone’s lap for hours while getting his belly scratched.

Talia
Female, Basenji and Thai Ridgeback mix
Age: approximately 9 months old
Size: approximately 28 pounds

Talia was rescued from a slaughterhouse in Cambodia. Marc found her while slaughterers were tying her to a pole to be cooked alive. At such a young age, this traumatized her severely. After arriving at the rescue, she found solace in no one and feared what every stranger would do to her. Over the course of just over a week, the employees worked hard with her every day in attempt to earn her trust. In the beginning, she would snap and snarl at each approach, but slowly learned to trust. She now gives kisses, will jump in your lap, and allow you to hold her. She has been introduced to the other dogs from Cambodia and is faring quite well. She is still wary with strangers, but opens up much faster if you have the time to spend with her.

Now, you can frequently see her tail wagging when someone enters her pen. Shanna is good with other dogs and is always happy when with her friends.

Donna
Female, mixed breed
Age: approximately 9 months old
Size: approximately 12 pounds

Donna’s parents were rescued from the meat trade in China and she was born in our shelter there. Donna is Marie’s sister, who was recently adopted, and their personalities are very similar. Like Marie, Donna is still very shy, but improving every day. She is very sweet and curious, but will need a little more time before she can totally open up. She loves other dogs, especially her best friend Shanna, and gets along anywhere.

Bumblebee

Cheeto
Male, Chihuahua
Age: approximately 4 years old
Size: approximately 6 pounds

Cheeto is a local rescue from Carson Shelter. Although we do not know exactly what happened to him in his previous home, we can tell he went through some pretty significant abuse. He is very protective of his things and himself, but at the same time is very sweet. He greets you with tail wags and kisses and likes to be picked up, but does not like to be put down. He will come and sit on your lap, as long as it is on his terms. Any issues we have encountered are easily trainable, as he is eager to learn and give tons of love.

Razor
Female, Corgi mix
Age: approximately 2 years old
Size: approximately 28 pounds

Razor was rescued from a slaughterhouse in Changchun China back in early spring. Her first days in the rescue were spent silently exploring her new home. Once she felt situated, her love for humans emerged. She gets very excited if someone will take the time to enter her pen and pet her. She also loves to be active and go out on walks as much as possible. Razor does not mind being around the other dogs, but prefers to be on her own.

Alfie
Male, American Pit Bull Terrier and Bullmastiff mix
Age: approximately 3 years old
Size: approximately 50 pounds

Alfie was found out in the California desert abandoned and extremely malnourished. The state of his mouth and general health was originally thought to be caused by someone pouring gasoline down his throat. Veterinarians fortunately determined this was not the case, but instead he has a severe gum disease that can be removed by laser. Even from the start of his recovery, Alfie was been exceptionally sweet. He loves all people and other dogs and has no problem with strangers. He will get up to greet any person that comes his way with a big smile. He is extremely well behaved and learns quickly.

Penny
Female, mixed breed
Age: approximately 3 years old
Size: approximately 25 pounds

Penny was rescued from the Yulin Festival in China. She was sweet as soon as she emerged from her crate on her first day at the rescue. We also soon found out that she loves cats just as much as she loves people so she would do well in a cat loving home. Penny loves to go on walks and would not mind if they lasted forever. She would love a home with active parents so she can do her favorite activity as much as she likes. Recently, Penny gave birth to seven healthy puppies, but is now back in our rescue and ready for adoption.

Betsy

Abe
Male, mixed breed

Abe is one of Penny’s puppies. He is an absolute sweetheart. He was born hours after his siblings, but it seems the extra time in the womb allowed him some extra time to grow. He is a gentle boy who loves to play and explore. He is very easy going and rarely cries.

Susan B
Female, mixed breed
Age: approximately 10 weeks old
Size: approximately 13 pounds

Susan B is one of Penny’s puppies. She is the tiniest of the group. She was the first to open her eyes and start walking, so she is definitely ahead of the curve in development, just not in physique. She is gentle and very easy going. Her adorable markings make her irresistible. She loves to cuddle and play.

Frenchy
Female, Border Collie mix
Age: approximately 4 months old
Size: approximately 8 pounds

Frenchy was born in our shelter in China after her parents were rescued from a slaughterhouse in Changchun. With so many dogs and so little people in our shelter in China, sometimes the dogs are not very socialized with people and they are very nervous with us when they get to the states. This is absolutely not the case with Frenchy; she is the most outgoing of the group and will run up to any strangers that come her way. She is very playful with other dogs and would definitely need to go to a home with her sister and someone who already has another dog so she is not lonely.

Rizzo
Female, Border Collie mix
Age: approximately 4 months old
Size: approximately 8 pounds

Rizzo was born in our shelter in China after her parents were rescued from a slaughterhouse in Changchun. She is not as outgoing as her sister Frenchy, but she is still just as sweet.

She is a very social dog and will probably need to go to a home with her sister or another pet so she does not get lonely.

Marti
Female, Dachshund mix
Age: approximately 4 months old
Size: approximately 8 pounds

Marti was born in our shelter in China after her parents were rescued from a slaughterhouse in Changchun. She is incredibly sweet and quieter than the other puppies she came in with.
