Adoptable Dogs

Copper (Gray)
Female, American Pit Bull Terrier mix
Age: approximately 2 years old
Size: approximately 65 pounds

Copper was saved from a South Korean slaughterhouse back in March. While in the slaughterhouse she was hung, burned, and starved. Upon her arrival at the rescue in Los Angeles, she was still extremely underweight. The conditions she was kept in also caused her to develop a skin issue, but with a little treatment and time, she is now very healthy. Despite what she has been through, Copper is an amazing animal. She is loving and extremely playful with people and other dogs. All she wants to do is play, give kisses, and cuddle. When she sees another dog, she immediately wants to wrestle, but she does not know her own strength so she is better with bigger dogs. With so much energy, she needs someone who has an active lifestyle and a large yard to keep her happy. She has come a long way with her leash training from pulling you all over the place to see everything to walking right by your side like a new dog. Please consider coming in to the rescue to meet her and you might just meet your new best friend.

Talia
Female, Basenji and Thai Ridgeback mix
Age: approximately 11 months old
Size: approximately 30 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.
