Adoptable Dogs

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

Honey was rescued from a South Korean meat farm in 2016. She arrived in the states during that fall extremely traumatized and was too scared to even attempt to bite anyone despite not knowing who anyone was and what they would do to her. 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.

Honey is still currently in her foster home, but is now available for adoption.

Talia
Female, Basenji and Thai Ridgeback mix
Age: approximately 1 year old
Size: approximately 30 pounds

Talia was rescued from a slaughterhouse in Cambodia. While still overseas, she had her mouth tied shut and her legs bound together so that she could not fight back and dragged defenselessly across the ground into the slaughterhouse. Marc witnessed, and recorded, slaughterers hog tying her to a pole to be cooked alive. At such a young age, her experiences traumatized her severely.

After arriving at the rescue, she found solace in no one and feared what every stranger might do to her. The employees worked hard with her every day in an attempt to earn her trust. In the beginning, she would snap and snarl at each approach, but slowly learned to trust.

With those she knows well, she now gives kisses, will jump in your lap, and allow you to hold her. She acts like a big baby and can been seen lying upside down in someone’s lap falling asleep. She has been introduced to the other dogs and is faring quite well. She is still getting used to going on walks, but does well in a backyard where she can run around and get her puppy energy out. She is very playful and has a hilarious personality. She is still very wary with strangers, but opens up much faster if you have the time to spend with her. Talia is worth the effort because she will come to love you unconditionally.

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

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.

Monet
Female, mixed breed
Age: approximately 6 months old
Size: approximately 7 pounds

Monet is a local rescue from Los Angeles. She was found by the LA Animal Cruelty Task Force wandering near her mother who was beaten to death. It was discovered that she was born with microopthalmia, which means that that her eyes never developed due to the upper eyelid never forming, leaving her blind. She has learned to overcome her disability and is doing very well. She is extremely sweet and does very well with children and dogs.

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

Xiaohua
Female, Pekingese and Australian Cattle Dog mix
Age: approximately 2-3 years old
Size: approximately 15 pounds

Xiaohua, which means Little Flower, was rescued from a slaughterhouse in Changchun in March of last year. The director of our shelter in China Suki, absolutely adored her and when she arrived in the United States, we quickly found out why. Xiaohua has a big personality and loves to be the center of attention. She will always try to be the first one to greet you and asked to be picked up. She is still a little wary of men, due to her experiences, so while at times she can be temperamental, it is only ever endearing.

Xiaohua does not mind being around other dogs and has a few that she enjoys playing with, but she also enjoys having her own space. She is never more excited than when she sees a leash and realizes she is about to go for a walk. She has shown us how grateful she is to be saved by taking in every smell and stopping at every tree while outside. She pulls slightly, but is developing great leash manners.

Since she is so fond of people, she does not like to be where she cannot see someone she knows, but is content to sit silently beside you. Xiaohua radiates love and happiness and she cannot wait to meet you.
