Adoptable Dogs

Pear
Female, Shepard/terrier mix
Age: approximately 11 months old
Size: approximately 20 pounds

 

Pear was born at our shelter in China. Her parents were rescued from a slaughterhouse in Changchun, which is in Northern China, back in March 2017. She and her siblings arrived here last fall and she is the last one still waiting to find her perfect family.

She is very sweet and loves other dogs. Still shy with people she doesn’t know which is why she definitely needs another dog in the home. She is active and enjoys walks and playing rough with her buddies.

Xiahua
Female, Pekingese Mix
Age: approximately 2 years old
Size: approximately 16 pounds

Xiahua (Little Flower) was rescued from a Changchun slaughterhouse in Northern China last March 2017. She had distemper and was very sick when she first arrived at our shelter in Changsha. But she is a fighter and made a full recovery.

She is full of personality and opinions. But once she knows you she loves you. Super friendly and loving. Enjoys her walks and to also sit in your lap. She is picky about which dogs she likes, but is great at playing with the ones she does.

Honey
Female, Jindo and Hound mix
Age: approximately 2-3 years old
Size: approximately 45 pounds

Honey was rescued from a South Korean slaughterhouse in 2016. She arrived in the states a few months later extremely traumatized. She was isolated at first so that the employees could work with her, but it was clear it was not making a difference.

She was relocated into a pen where she could meet new dogs and hopefully this would help her to open up. She quickly bonded to several of the dogs and became quite playful while no humans were around. In the beginning of 2017, she was moved into a foster home with a trainer, where she has been for almost a year, and the trainer believes she is now ready to find her furever home.

Alfie
Male, Pit Bull Terrier and Bullmastiff mix
Age: approximately 3-4 years old
Size: approximately 85 pounds

Alfie was found abandoned and extremely malnourished. He was dropped off a shelter in San Bernardino, where one of our volunteers found him. His gums were extremely overgrown and it seemed as though his teeth had been filed down. The state of his mouth and general health was originally thought to be caused by someone pouring gasoline down his throat. Veterinarians fortunately determined that this was not the case, but instead he has a severe gum disease, called gingival hyperplasia, which is being cared for now.

He came to our facility very weak and after some time, there was an amazing foster home found for him where he gained his weight back, developed great leash manners, and learned some tricks. He came back into the facility when he was healthy again and the employees are continuing to work with him. He gets along with small dogs, but enjoys spending time on his own.

Three oral surgeries and living in the rescue has put a lot of stress on Alfie, but we are hoping that someone will see this sweet boy for who is and gives him the chance of a fresh start and a loving home.

Joanie
Female, Border Collie and Hound mix
Age: approximately 11 months old
Size: approximately 23 pounds

Joanie was born in our shelter in China after her parents were rescued from a slaughterhouse. She is very sweet and gentle and greets you with a big smile. She loves when someone spends time with her and will thank them with a kiss. While she can still be a little shy at times, she is totally content to hang out with you for a long as possible. Joanie’s calm and friendly demeanor will make her a great addition to your family.

Lewis
Male, Chihuahua mix
Age: approximately 15 years old
Size: approximately 18 pounds

Lewis is a local rescue from the Carson Shelter. Lewis’s previous family abandoned him at the Carson Shelter because they said that he was too old and smelled bad. Just before he was about to be euthanized, we snatched him up and brought him to the vet. The poor guy had lumps and fat deposits covering his body, he was overweight, almost completely deaf, and partially blind. Despite his issues, the little man can still boogey.

When he was in the rescue, he was unsure of what to expect of us at first and flinched at our touch, but was sweet from the very start. As time passed, he became more bonded to those who work in the facility. He does not like to be isolated or in a pen too far away where he cannot see them. He likes to be right in the middle of the action where he can run around after people and be the first to greet the guests who come into the rescue.

He now loves to be pet and scratched around his ears and underneath his collar. He will thank you for your time by nuzzling you and giving you a few little kisses. We cannot understand how this kind soul was abandoned and hope if you meet him, you will love him as much as we do.

Lewis is currently in a foster home, but is still available for adoption.

Aiden
Male, Jindo mix
Age: approximately 1 year old
Size: approximately 25 pounds

Aiden was rescued from a dog meat farm in South Korea. While he can be shy with some people, he is also one of our most outgoing dogs with others. His huge personality is endless entertainment. He can be incredibly affectionate and loves the company of both people and other dogs. He would be great for anyone enjoys running or going on hikes with their dogs.

Dino
Male, Chihuahua mix
Age: approximately 9 years old
Size: approximately 16 pounds

Dino is a local rescue who came from the Carson Shelter. He is very easygoing and loves people. He is satisfied when he knows where you are and what you are up to. He does not mind some other dogs, but prefers to be on his own. He came to us with a skin condition, due to neglect, so he enjoys back scratches as often as he can get them. When he is in the rescue, Dino loves when visitors come to see him. While he can still be shy, he is extremely well behaved.

Dino is currently in a foster home, but is still available for adoption.

Yoyo
Male, Pekingese mix
Age: approximately 2-3 years old

Yoyo was rescued from the 2017 Yulin Dog Meat Festival in China. He is awkwardly adorable and a sweetheart. His only desire is to be where the people are and to be a part of the action. He gets along well with other dogs and while you will not necessarily see him playing with his friends, he greatly enjoys cuddling with them. He will be one of the first to greet you if you enter his pen and gladly give you kisses.

Demi
Female, Tibetan Spaniel and Terrier mix
Age: approximately 2 years old
Size: approximately 14 pounds

Billy
Male, Poodle mix
Age: approximately 7 years old
Size: approximately 20 pounds

Billy is a local rescue from Los Angeles. He was an owner surrender and arrived at the shelter with a sweater on to hide his injuries. Once removed, severe burns were revealed on his back. It is assumed that chemicals had caused the wound to his back and lacerations on his face were from the “splash” of the same chemicals. AHWF brought him to our rescue where his personality blossomed quickly. Billy is a young soul who loves to play. He enjoys the company of other dogs and likes to play with toys. He now loves human attention and adores belly scratches.

Billy is currently in a foster home, but is still available for adoption.

Alvin
Male, Hound mix
Age: approximately 6 months old
Size: approximately 20 pounds

Alvin was a stray dog rescued in China. He is still timid, but has made great advancements with people. He wags his tail and runs up to those he knows well. He is getting more comfortable with being picked up and receiving belly rubs. Alvin has come a long way with his leash training and is now great on walks. With strangers, he still needs time to open up, but this sweet guy is definitely worth the effort.
