Adoptable Dogs

Copper (Gray)
Female, Pit Bull Terrier and Labrador 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. With her energy and strength, she requires an experienced owner. 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 witnessed slaughterers hog 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 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.
