: Susie
Age: 8 years old
Breed: Papillon mix
Gender: Female spayed
Organization: Lionel's Legacy
Website: www.lionelslegacy.org
Phone: (619) 212-5623

Little Susie is a sweet Papillonwho enjoys going for walks, hanging with her canine pals, and watching CW6 when she's cuddling with her foster mom. She's inquisitive, fun-loving, and considered a senior-in-training at the ripe young age of eight. Susie is 100% house trained and great about letting you know when its time to go outside, which is especially nice if you don't have a yard of your own with easy access! Susie enjoys the company of other dogs but she's very lady like, and not a rough and tough tomboy. Susie will need regular grooming and brushing to keep up her beautiful coat, but she's always on her best behavior at the groomers. All adoptable dogs available from Lionel's Legacy are fully vaccinated, microchipped, spayed or neutered, and most have bloodwork and a dental too. If you'd like to learn more about adopting Suzie, volunteering or fostering for this senior dog rescue, go to www.lionelslegacy.org or come to their booth at the Cupids And Canines MEGA Adoption Event on Saturday, February 13th at Grossmont Center Mall.

Breed: Long Hair Chihuahua / Spaniel mix
Age: 2 years old
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Chihuahua Rescue of San Diego
Phone: (858) 277-3557
Website: RescueAChihuahua.com

Sophia was pulled out of a high-kill shelter. She had a broken leg, and was turned in to be euthanized as her previous owners didn't want to spend the money to take care of her vet costs. Fortunately, Chihuahua Rescue of San Diego got her from the shelter and took her into a San Diego Animal Clinic to perform the surgery. It's been 4 months since her surgery, and she's healed so nicely that you wouldn't even know she had anything done. Sophia sleeps in her crate at night, loves her walks and is doing very well when she's left home alone. She does like other dogs but human attention is really her favorite thing. She doesn't mind having her beautiful coat brushed, and of course she's now spayed and has all her shots up to date. If you'd like to meet Sophia, please fill out an adoption application at RescueAChihuahua.com, or come to an adoption event listed on their calendar. She's also just one of more than 200 animals who will be available for adoption at the Cupids And Canines MEGA Adoption Event in La Mesa on the 13th, if she isn't adopted beforehand!

Age: 5 months
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: Operation Greyhound
Website: http://www.operationgreyhound.com
E-Mail: operationgreyhound@cox.net
Phone: (619) 588-6611

Devo was in a Gumi Kill Shelter in South Korea. A volunteer from Team Inch Sighthound Rescue of So. Korea saw him, but shortly thereafter, he disappeared from the shelter. He was found 10 days later in the mountains in the snow. He was taken back to shelter and the volunteer paid to get him out. She said he fit in her hands with no muscle at all...like a stuffed toy without the stuffing, totally sagging and empty. He was brought to a vet and posted on Facebook where Operation Greyhound saw him, and decided to bring him to USA. He arrived in January and is doing fantastic. He has grown an additional 10 lbs, his back legs are still weak and sometimes get crossed when he runs and he falls down and he requires help to get back up. Nevertheless, he loves to play with the big greyhounds and with toys. He is very smart and a real survivor. Devo is still going through physical therapy and medical care, but will be available for adoption The adoption fee will reflect the expenses which Operation Greyhound has incurred. If you want to meet Devo, Operation Greyhound visiting hours are from 10 am to 3 pm, 7 days a week, he will also be at the tCupids And Canines MEGA Adoption Event on February 13th, and at Ark Antiques in La Jolla on the 20th.

Klaus As featured on San Diego 6-CW animal house (and click here to see Klaus' picture video on KUSI GOOD MORNING SAN DIEGO!)

Name:
Klaus
Breed: Cocker Spaniel mix
Age: 7 years
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: Animal Rescuers Without Borders
Phone: (619) 977-3593
Web: ARWOB.org

Klaus came in to the Animal Shelter in Bonita a couple months ago. He had a microchip, and his family was contacted, but sadly, they never came to pick him up, so he was eventually put up for adoption. At 7 years of age, with all the other adorable, young dogs at the shelter, there was just too much competition, and Klaus was overlooked. So Animal Rescuers Without Borders came to the rescue, pulled him from the shelter, and placed him in a foster home. His foster family quickly realized that he's very loving, and full of life! He runs and walks like a young puppy. He's good with dogs and cats, and his foster family even transformed him from a neglected outdoor dog, to a well-behaved indoor dog, which will be a huge plus for his future family. He's crate trained, loves car rides, his tennis ball, and playing fetch. He doesn't bark much, either. He hasn't been around children, so a family with kids 12-years or older would be ideal. Go to ARWOB.org to fill out an adoption application, learn about becoming a foster family, volunteer, or to find out about this weekend's upcoming adoption event!

He even likes to show off by sitting and waiting for his food. Bam Bam even has his very own Facebook page to keep up with all of his fans! His foster moms agree he is exceptionally smart and eager to learn. Bam loves hikes, in fact he's quite the Breed ambassador at the San Diego Pittie Parents pack walks. He also enjoys sunbathing, lounging on the couch, and chewing on bully sticks. He's a heart throb with Hershey kisses for eyes and silky white fur that's perfect for cuddling... won't you let him steal your heart?

He's a wonderful dog who just needs someone who understands that new situations can sometimes overwhelm him. He'd do best in a quiet, adult-only home with easy-going people. He'd also enjoy the company of other dogs, and is already house-trained. He'll be a great companion and world-class love-bug.

Maddie
Breed: Pit Bull Mix

Sex: Female
Organization: PBRSD
Phone: 858-736-1727
Website: www.pbrsd.org

Maddie is a 5 year old adorable, squishy pit bull mix, who's only about 55 pounds. She loves people and will cuddle as much as she can. She's a smart girl who learned her new name in two days.

She makes everyone laugh when she gets "zoomies" and runs as fast as she can. She loves to play fetch - she has a favorite ball that she'll keep bringing back to you to throw.

She loves to be pet and snuggled and is a wonderful companion. She loves car rides. She can keep up with a jogger (and has learned to run alongside a bicycle), or is happy just going for a stroll.

Her foster family thinks the perfect family for her would be one that can give her lots of love and attention. She gets sad when left by herself, so she would love to live with a family who is home a lot and will take her places.

You can read more about Maddie, and submit an adoption application, at www.pbrsd.org. Check the events page for upcoming adoption event dates so you can come out to meet her in person.

Gorgeous George is a Silver Marten bunny for adoption from the San Diego Companion Rabbit Society. He's so handsome and sensitive, they named him after George Clooney. He's just 5.5 pounds and a funny guy with a lot of personality. As soon as he got to the shelter, he built a nest in his litter box and placed his stuffed bear in it.

He's great about using his litter box, loves fresh veggies and hay, and also loves playing with his toys. One of his favorite games is to wait until you get his pen all nice and neat, and then he goes back and rearranges it.

E-mail: LSepton@ChulaVistaCA.gov

Shasta is a very well-mannered 4-year-old spayed German Shepherd, with the classic black and tan coloring of the highly sought after breed. She was brought into the Chula Vista Animal Shelter as a stray, a bit neglected and underweight. With proper care, she's now starting to get her looks and shape back. She currently weighs 72 pounds and could use a few more. Shasta knows her sit command really well and is very food motivated, so training will be a cinch! She likes to chase tennis balls and will drop them when you tell her to. She's not really into other dogs, and clearly prefers to be with people companions. She can be a bit shy when she first meets people, and would probably do best in a home with children who are at least 12. Shasta's amazing adoption fee of $75 includes her spay, microchip, and vaccinations. For more information, call the adoption counselor at 619-691-5174 or e-mail LSepton@ChulaVistaCA.gov.

Name:
Henry
Breed: Chihuahua mix
Age: 6 Years old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: SENA Animal Rescue
Phone: (858) 408-5658
Website: www.senarescue.org

Henry has been with SENA Animal Rescue for a year. He had medical needs that needed to be taken care of before he could be put up for adoption, and he's been available for adoption since September. Henry had glaucoma causing severe pressure in his eyes, so a veterinarian removed them to eliminate the pain. Since the surgery, he's been a happy, sweet, playful dog, and even put on some weight. He has a heart murmur, but no signs of heart failure, so he's not on any medications at this time. Henry is very well-behaved, friendly, and loves to meet other dogs and humans. He currently lives with two dogs and 4 cats. He's very smart and just needs a stable home without stairs or a pool, and time to learn his new surroundings, which can take a few hours. Caring for a blind dog isn't hard, it just requires consistency in his surroundings. You need to keep the furniture in the same place and be organized and good about removing obstacles like shopping bags or groceries. He'll express his gratitude with affection and kisses. He loves walks, and runs like he knows where he's going! Like any other dog, he loves toys, treats and even plays fetch!

Phone: (858) 344-2423

Elliott is an affectionate, quiet, 2-year-old Chiweenie (Chihuahua, Dachshund mix) available for adoption from Scratch My Belly Rescue. Believe it or not, he was saved just in the nick of time from the Riverside shelter! Can you imagine a dog this precious being euthanized? Elliott is very happy and social, and his foster family adores him. He's great with other dogs, good with kids of all ages, even toddlers, and is even familiar with horses, so he'll delight almost any type of family, just as long as they love him. Elliott is already neutered, vaccinated and microchipped, so he's ready to go to a forever home! Ideally, we'd like to find him a home with another playful dog, as he loves to play and run around...in fact you can watch his YouTube video on the website at www.scratchmybelly.org. You can also learn more about volunteering, fostering, or adopting any of their wonderful dogs.

Mandi is an incredibly sweet, loving socialite who loves to play with other dogs and is great with kids. She's smart, considerate, and at 1.5 years old, she already knows good manners when she is out on walks! She follows along nicely and rarely pulls on a leash. Mandi also comes when you call her. She was found as a stray, with signs that she had recently given birth. The Rescued Dog has now had her in their foster program since July. Mandi is great around other dogs, kids, and people. Her foster family lets her run around and play at the off-leash dog park for an hour every day. And she's well behaved in her crate when they're not home. She's 55-pounds, house-trained, and currently sleeps in bed with her foster parents. Her excellent behavior makes her a perfect fit for almost any home. If you or your family are looking for a big playful sweetheart with great social skills and training, who will greet you with excitement-filled hugs and kisses every time you get home, then Mandi is the dog for you!

Update: Adoption Pending

Name: Barney
Breed: Pit Bull Mix
Age: 4 1/2 month old puppy
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: Pit Bull Rescue San Diego
Phone: (858) 736-1727
Website: www.pbrsd.org

Barney is the snuggliest puppy you could ever meet! He still has bursts of puppy energy when he'll run around in circles and shake his toys. Then he gets tired and snuggles until he falls asleep right next to, or on top of you. He's met kids as young as 3 and stayed nice and calm while they pet him. He lives with a cat, and has tried to play, but the cat isn't interested in playing with him. Barney will sit at crosswalks until it's ok to cross the street. He doesn't beg for food, and his foster family is working on teaching him more commands. The perfect family for Barney would be one that loves him to the moon and back! Someone who has time to give him lots of attention and playtime, and will indulge his need to snuggle! His foster family says whoever adopts him is going to be super lucky because he's the most lovable pup they know. Read more about Barney, and submit an adoption application, at PBRSD.org and check the events page for upcoming adoption events where you can meet him.

Breed: Golden Retriever/Pyrenees mix
Age: 9-years-old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: Great Pyrenees Association of Southern California
Phone: (858) 847-2271
Website: www.GreatPyrRescue.org

King is a 9-year-old Great Golden Pyrenees. The shelter had him listed as a great Pyr but judging by his looks, he's got a lot of Golden Retriever in him. He was turned in by his previous family for being allergic to fleas and loosing his hair. He was a terrible mess and had half the coat he has now. With some quality food and vet care, he's a new man (just look at the picture!). His foster family says that he is the easiest dog to have around. King loves people and dogs but is not so good with cats. He's housebroken, easy going, quiet with a rare low bark. He enjoys spending time inside and out and sleeps peacefully through the night. While he enjoys a little walk, he poops out quickly so, he doesn't need a lot of exercise. King would make the perfect companion dog as he is super low maintenance. King was a very popular guy at the recent Santa Paws event but the families that showed so much interest in sweet King unfortunately did not pan out. This sweet old man really deserves a home for the New Year. If you are interested in adopting King please fill out an adoption application at www.GreatPyrRescue.org or call their local adopting and foster coordinator, Kristen, at (858) 847.2271 for more information.

Allowing an animal to suffer is something most of us will never understand...Looney was part of a confiscation case at one of our local shelters. Her owners let her suffer with a prolapsed uterus for days. In excruciating pain, bleeding, and near death, she was relinquished to the shelter and underwent urgent surgery. Then she sat, and sat, and sat at the shelter where nobody noticed her. Finally, when she was placed on the euthanasia list, Labradors And Friends rescue stepped up to save her. Looney is a 5-year-old lab/pittie mix, and she's 50-pounds and pure love. She is completely healthy now and really needs a foster or better yet, a forever home to show her love. She's very affectionate, sweet, happy and easy going. She's house trained, good with other dogs, well mannered and loves car rides...a true gem.

Stormin' Norman, is an 11-month old Terrier puppy, adopted from a shelter by someone who was not up to the task of managing such a high energy breed.

Our goal is to bring him love and stability in the new year, with a forever family of his own. Norman does love going for walks and playing at the dog parks. He has good house manners and will become a friend to anyone who is kind to him. Norman is just 18-pounds, he's the type of guy who will go anywhere with you, and his good looks command attention everywhere he goes.

Elway is a 9-month-old Lionhead Bunny for adoption from the San Diego House Rabbit Society. He weighs only 3.5 pounds and is a spunky, funny, friendly boy who loves to play. He's already neutered and litter-box-trained, and loves to eat hay. His favorite thing is to hide and nap under his plastic dome igloo where he thinks you can't see him. He'd do best in an adult home or one with children who are at least 8 years of age. He loves being pet, and enjoys playing with all of his toys. He's used to living in an X-pen setup and would need a roomy space like that in his new home. Active bunnies need plenty of room to play. If you'd like to meet Elway, please fill out an adoption application at SanDiegoRabbits.org or come to a Bunny 101 class to learn more about the care of rabbits.

Phone: (619) 356-3390

She's deaf and missing a leg...sweet Casey is a special dog looking for a special family. When The Rescued Dog saved her, Casey had a shattered femur, and veterinarians recommended amputation. After her surgery, Casey bounced back and is living a happy, pain-free life. She'll need some special training and a little extra patience to figure out how to navigate through life with her new family. It's 100% worth it though, as Casey is about as loving as sweet as they come. She's extremely affectionate and wants to be with people at all times. She doesn't really understand the concept of "personal space", which may be due to her hearing issue. However, with positive reinforcement, Casey is sure to master boundaries and blossom into a confident, fun companion. She's 2-years-old and full-grown at 25-pounds. She loves meeting other dogs and would be a fun to take to the dog park. If you would like to schedule a meet and greet, please fill out an application at TheRescuedDog.org.

Handsome Oso looks like a mix of Rhodesian Ridgeback and bear. Weighing 85-pounds, this gentle giant is all love and devotion and loves kids and other big dogs.. His hips are a little stiff in the morning, but he still takes a 40 minute walk. He's up for adoption because his owner got sick and couldn't take care for him. Oso is a quick learner, housebroken, neutered, and fully vaccinated. He's much more responsive than the average Ridgeback and takes direction pretty well. Oso's perfect home would be with someone who wants a mildly protective dog that doesn't bark much, and is an awesome companion. They'd also like to find him a home where someone's home a lot, as he craves human companionship. He'd prefer to be only dog, although he'd be fine with medium to large dogs, as he thrives at doggy day care. He'd also like long walks and frequent belly rubs!

Cooper is a very sweet neutered male, domestic short-hair kitten, who loves people, and purrs like a lion whenever they're around. Like all cats from the National Cat Protection Society, he is tested for feline leukemia, vaccinated, treated for fleas, dewormed, microchiped, and neutered before adoption. Cooper is already litter box trained and gets along with his fellow felines at the shelter, so he should make an ideal indoor companion, even for a family with other cats. He's very playful in the morning, and runs around chasing the other kittens. He loves to play with his toys, especially the ones with catnip. Cooper was recently at an adoption event where he impressed everyone with his personality, yet here he is, still up for adoption. National Cat Protection Society is located on Birch Street in Spring Valley, and you can find more information at NatCat.org.

E-mail: LSepton@ChulaVistaCA.gov

Domino is a 7-year-old Shepherd/Collie mix who weighs 65-pounds. When he first came to the Chula Vista Shelter, he was a bit chubby, but by participating in play-groups with other dogs, he's now slim and athletic. He's great with other dogs, but tries to avoid cats when he's on a leash. He's well behaved and knows basic commands and how to walk on a leash...especially when treats are involved. As an added bonus, Domino is already housetrained, so he'll be a great indoor companion. Domino's adoption fee is only $25 and includes neutering, microchip, vaccinations, plus he's had a dental cleaning. They're open Tuesdays through Saturdays starting at 10 a.m. and are located at 130 Bayer Way, right off Main Street in Chula Vista.

Breed: Greyhound
Age: 3-years-old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: Greyhound Adoption Center, 4821 Dehesa Road in El Cajon Phone: (877) HoundSavers
Web: HoundSavers.org

Ed is different from most greyhounds we showcase on KUSI. For one thing, he is bigger than most greyhounds --- he weighs more than 90 pounds. For another, he is recovering from a broken leg – hence the giant bandaged splint. While this gentle giant is only 3-years old, he's easy to handle, and a fine example of the wonderful greyhound temperament you often hear people mention about greyhounds. Greyhound Adoption Center volunteers picked him up from the local racetrack in late September, after Ed broke his leg in a race. He's a good-natured dog, laid-back and easy going. Once his leg is healed and his neuter completed Ed, or Big Ed as we call him at our shelter, will be ready to take up large area someone's couch and in their heart. Thanks to support from public donations, Greyhound Adoption Center is able to help dozens of greyhounds with broken legs – just like Ed's. So far this year, of the 126 track dogs we have rescued, 24 had leg injuries. Most make a complete recovery and enjoy full lives as family pets without leg problems. If people want to help dogs, just like Ed, but can't adopt, we offer great options: Call 877- HOUNDSAVERS or check out Houndsavers.org. We welcome volunteers, too. Our 3 acre campus is in East County between El Cajon and Alpine: 4821 Dehesa Road.

Jack
Breed: Standard Mix
Age: 6 months
Sex: Male, neutered
Organization: San Diego House Rabbit Society
Phone: (858) 565-2869
Website: www.sandiegorabbits.org

Jack is a handsome young bunny who is friendly and active. He came from a big rescue HRS did in May when they took in about 14 adults and nearly 50 babies. The rabbits were neglected and living in a dirty environment, which took a toll on their health. Little Jack was fostered with his mom and brothers in a private home, then transferred to our adoption center in July. He previously bonded with his brother, but they decided they didn't want to live together anymore so now he's a single boy. Jack would prefer to be single at this point in his life. He has rejected any bonding attempts with girl bunnies and doesn't show much interest. It appears that he prefers to get all the attention from his human friends. Jack would do well in an adult home or one with children 8 years or older, who don't feel they have to hold him all the time. Like most bunnies, Jack prefers to be interacted with down on the floor and not carried around.

Website: TheRescuedDog.org

Sweet and soulful Cassie came to The Rescued Dog from the Humane Society of Imperial County. Cassie had a broken bone in her leg which they tried to correct with surgery, but her poor little body rejected the plate and the vet ultimately recommended amputation. The painful leg was removed, and Cassie is now looking forward to a happy, pain-free life with a family who will love her forever, despite her handicap. This petite Australian Cattle Dog mix is full grown at 22-pounds, and she's just 1.5 years old. She's naturally affectionate and friendly, and her foster family says she's a dream on the leash. Additionally she's housebroken. Cassie is the perfect age to start basic training, and the perfect size for an apartment, condo or house. She's an excellent companion on walking trails, trips to the dog park and playing at the beach. Being a tripod hasn't slowed her down a bit. If you'd like to meet Cassie and see if she's a match for your family, call or fill out an application at TheRescuedDog.org and a volunteer will contact you shortly!

Age: 10-years-old
Sex: Neutered Male
Weight 4-pounds
Update: Jake has been adopted!

Rusty recently had a dental cleaning and has received lots of TLC, and has started to play with his toys and act like a puppy again. He loves his lap-time, going to dog parks, and just being a companion to a special person. He weighs just 7-pounds.

Rusty is part of Chihuahua Rescue's Silver Linings Program, where the Rescue organization retains ownership of the dog for the rest of his/her life, which means the rescue will pay for routine medical and any other necessary care the foster may not be financially able to provide. These are dogs who have very little chance of being adopted, yet the Silver Linings Program grants them sanctuary to live out their lives with a loving family. It's a win-win for both the dog, and the caregiver who wants a dog to love, but can't afford the costs...especially an expensive vet bill. To sponsor a Silver Linings dog, or to become a forever-foster family for one of these precious little souls, call (858) 277-3557 or e-mail Dog@RescueAChi.com.

Quinn is sweet but shy girl, a little over 1 year old. She was part of a large litter of babies who were available for adoption. Quinn and her sister, Hannah were adopted and returned. Quinn is a shy girl and takes time to get used to you. She's active and loves to explore. She's litter-box-trained and keeps a tidy pen. She loves toys, including cardboard boxes, willow toys to chew, and rattle balls to roll around. Quinn is best suited to an adult home with experienced bunny lovers. Because she is so shy she needs a family who will accept her for who she is and give her plenty of time to settle in and get used to her new home. She'd make a great family bunny but needs a roomy exercise pen, at a minimum. She may do fine with other species such as cats or gentle dogs. To Adopt, visit SanDiegoRabbits.org and complete the Adopter Profile. You may be asked to attend our Bunny 101 class prior to adopting, but that's just so you get started on the right foot!

So Bonnie was left behind, and now we hope someone out there will give her a chance to be part of their family. She's a pretty mellow girl who knows how to use a doggie door and loves belly rubs., She had a full dental cleaning so she feels great and is ready for the good life with someone who wants a sturdy yet smaller girl.

Gerbil was pulled from an overcrowded shelter in August. He's great with other cats, and loves to play with felines of any age, plus he loves his toys. When he's not playing, he's a very chill, easy-going Lynx/Seal Point Siamese mix. He likes sun bathing, cat naps, using his scratcher, and FOOD. Even though he's a big boy, he has a very tiny chirp of a meow that'll make you laugh when you hear it. The more you talk to and pet him, the more he enjoys and seeks out the attention. If you ignore him, he ignores you back. He'd be fine around kids, but doesn't enjoy being carried around much, and he seems okay with dogs, once he gets to know them. Gerbil is in a foster home and would love an adopter. But call even if you just want to foster him, as that would open up his current foster for another shelter cat. Go to ARWOB.org for more information about fostering or adopting.

Webpage: http://www.coastalgsrsd.org/dog/2694/clark-kent

Clark Kent is a gorgeous purebred German Shepherd, turned in by someone who said they found him as a stray. He caught kennel cough while at a shelter, and when he recovered, he began having seizures, presumably from epilepsy. He's a very friendly yet confident dog who needs a strong leader. He does well walking with other dogs, but can react to strange dogs while on a leash. Shepherd people know this is common among the breed and often misinterpreted as dog aggression. Clark Kent has the typical personality that Shepherds are known for, tempered by a look sometimes seen in dogs who have lost their homes and are still expecting their family to show up. He's a "special needs" dog even though his seizures are now under control with medication. But he'll need a special family dedicated to making sure that he continues to get the appropriate medical care and is never abandoned again.

This handsome little guy with the expressive ears is Twinkie, and it's hard to believe he was found on the streets and then spent months cowering in the darkest corner of his shelter kennel. He wouldn't even let the volunteers come near him. He's now in a foster home with Wagging Dog Rescue. He's still shy but has shown his loving, playful side to those he trusts. Twinkie is 3 years old, and less than 10-pounds. He's a fan of belly rubs and scratches so you can tickle your way into his heart pretty quickly. He'd be perfectly happy as a lap dog, although he does love playing and running around with other dogs... possibly even a cat. Twinkie walks well on a leash, and likes car rides. He's crate trained and not a barker. If you think you're the right match for Twinkie, please go to WaggingDog.org for an application today!

Beebee is a low to medium energy dog who loves to hang out with her people and to go on walks. She's interested in knowing what's going on at all times and loves to be brushed, groomed and have her head scratched and ears rubbed. She has the eyes that the German Shepherd breed is known for. Beebee was turned in to the shelter by owners who had allowed her to become obese to the point where she could barely walk and had developed hip dysplasia. Her only chance of ever walking again was surgery on both hips, followed by rehab using an underwater treadmill and laser therapy.. She's lost 40 pounds, enjoys walking, and will soon have surgery on her other hip. Beebee's ideal family would be someone who will continue to help her get into shape. And if you like to sit and watch movies, Beebee would love to be there by your side. She's not good with small dogs and animals, and is a bit selective with large dogs, so she'd be best as the only family pet.

Bravo is a 7-year-old lab mix who loves playing at the dog park and dog beach. He's great with all dogs, big and small, and likes kids, too. Though he loves to play, when he's indoors, he's an absolute gentleman...very calm, well-behaved, housebroken, and always down for a belly-rub. He's a super well-adjusted dog who was on the list to be euthanized at the Orange County Shelter, nobody can even remember why, but our best guess is because he was middle-aged and no longer a desirable puppy. His foster mom can't say enough good things about this boy, and will be sad to see him leave...but she has other dogs to save, so we need to find him a forever home. If you're interested in adopting Bravo, contact LabradorsAndFriends.org and fill out an online application. You can also e-mail dogs@LabradorsAndFriends.org. Bravo is sure to be an amazing addition to your family, and an ambassador for all shelter dogs, especially those who are red-listed at our shelters.

Willow came to us after she was found on someone’s roof in San Diego and turned over to the shelter. Willow, as you can imagine, was a strong flyer. Before even leaving the shelter, she took a short flight around the area before she calmed down and allowed us to trim her wing feathers. She has shown no signs of feather destructive behavior while being in the foster program. Willow immediately converted over to a pelleted diet and is starting to show some interest in her morning vegetables, fruit, and sprouts. She loves her afternoon nuts and will eat both pistachios and Brazil nuts, but prefers the Brazil nuts to the pistachios. She is not too excited about showers, but does tolerate a good soaking every-other day. She "steps up" very well, and although she is a bit nervous with men to have her head scratched, she has shown no aggression at all. She is a bit thin so we are offering her a few extra nuts for the calories to get the weight back on. Willow will make a wonderful companion for someone who has the time and space for a macaw.

Rosie is a 7-year-old Staffordshire Terrier. She's a sweet, mellow gal who was abusively over-bred and left in terrible condition before winding up at a shelter. That never dampened her spirit and her tail has never stopped wagging when she meets new people and potential new friends. She's lucky enough to have a foster family that works from home and they have determined that she does not like to be left alone, so it would be nice to find her a similar forever family, where at least one person is around at any given time. She likes being around male dogs better than females, but would make a excellent solo dog.

Ace will be 2 years old in May. He's a Chihuahua/Beagle mix who was rescued from a shelter by Lucky Pup Dog Rescue before he was even born. His mother had 9 adorable puppies while in a foster home, and almost all the pups, and their mother ,were adopted, except for Ace. When he was a year old, Ace had surgery for a dislocated knee, but it heeled nicely, and he's good to go. He's super polite with people, even a little shy at first. He gets along great with other dogs, and loves cats. He'd do best in a home with children who are about 10 years old. He gets really excited when it's time to go for a walk, and after pulling a bit a first, he settles right in for a good stroll. He loves a routine, and is always ready for bed at 8 PM. He weighs about 20-pounds with a short, easy-to-care-for coat and he's 100% housetrained. Ace is neutered, and vaccinated. Please fill out an application online at LuckyPupDogRescue.com, to schedule a play date!.

Rio is a wonderful little guy, very affectionate and outgoing. He gets along well with other dogs, walks beautifully on a leash. He loves the kitty we have in the rescue. We don't know his history as he was rescued from a high kill shelter, but he really, really likes to be with people and dogs, so he wouldn't do well be left alone for many hours at time. He weighs about 15 pounds, and will need to be groomed on a regular basis. He still has quite a bit of puppy energy and could benefit from a doggie training class. Rio would be great with children over ten.

Bailey the Lab As featured on San Diego 6-CW Animal House! (and Bailey was also featured on the Mighty 1090 Pet Connection, and @105MaxFM! )

Name: Bailey
Breed: Labrador Retriever/Chocolate
Age: 7-8 years
Sex: Female\Spayed
Organization: Labradors & Friends
Phone: (619) 990-7455

Bailey is one of the lucky ones…a 7-8 year old dog doesn't stand a chance of getting out of the shelter she was in, but a volunteer from Labradors & Friends fell in love with her. Bailey is a perfect little lady. She LOVES everyone, she's great with kids, other dogs but would be best in a home without cats. She's house trained, good on the leash, and knows some basic commands. She was clearly once someone's girl, but they tragically never came to claim her from the shelter. Even if you're not able to adopt Bailey at this time, perhaps you could offer her a warm and loving home for the holidays as a temporary foster family. Call or go to LabradorsAndFriends.org.

I had to learn about the joys of indoor living when I first joined the rescue because they're pretty sure I lived an outside life as a breeding dog. I have learned that the couch is absolutely the best form of heaven! I currently live with a 1.5 year old pittie mix who thinks I'm his momma. I can be selective about my canine friends but if I love them then we are BFFs. I don't live with any kids, but my foster parent thinks I would be wonderful with little ones of all ages. I'm very calm around people, I don't jump, and I take food very slowly and gently. People tell me that I'm more adoptable if I know things. So far I've learned my name, sit, lay down, roll over, and go to bed. I'm crate trained and 100% potty trained! Call or visit www.pbrsd.org to schedule a time when we can meet.

Umbrella Cockatoo
Age:
13 years old
Sex:
Female
Organization:
Parrot Education & Adoption Center (PEAC)
Phone:
(619) 287-8200


Tootsie came to Parrot Education and Adoption Center In April of this year. Before that, she'd been with the same family for her entire life...13 years...but when they moved into an RV, Tootsie couldn't adjust to the cramped living quarters and tiny cage, and she began to pull her chest and leg feathers out due to stress. She's now in a foster home where she has grown back a large amount of down, and they hope she'll soon regrow some of her feathers, as well. She's now able to sleep and reside in a very large cage which is much more appropriate in size for a bird like her. She's loving and loves to cuddle and be around her people. She does tend to call out when she gets lonely, and they're working on redirecting this behavior to a more constructive one, such as playing with toys and other fun ways for her to occupy her mind when she's alone. Tootsie knows a few words such as hello and I love you, but is still too shy to speak in front of people but will chatter on and on when she's alone or in the company of other parrots. Tootsie is a fast learner and just wants to be in a forever home that will love her and care for her the way she deserves to be.

Labradors & Friends Dog Rescue would like to emphasize the benefits of adopting a senior. But if outright adoption isn't an option, then fostering, under the Agnes Fund program is also available. The Agnes Fund is basically a Hospice program where they take in seniors, put them in to caring foster homes, but L&F provides all food, bedding, medical and any other support for the life of the dog.
