Bella is practically perfect!

Maltese Terrier

Bella is a very sweet 2 yr old little girl looking for a new home. Her family cannot keep her in their current apartment, and asked us to help find her a new home. Bella is dog and kid friendly, well behaved, and happy. She isn't hyper or clingy the way some small dogs can be. Bella loves to go on walks, or be by your side. She can be initially shy, but warms up very quickly. She is house trained, spayed, current on vaccinations, and microchipped. Bella doesn't have any destructive habits like chewing, digging or barking. If you'd like to meet Bella, please complete our adoption application found on We're only adopting out to the Southern California area. Adoption donation $250

Foster Homes Needed

So many dogs are finding their way into shelters. Sadly, due to overcrowding, many never make it out. We can only save as many dogs as we have available foster homes. Can you save a dog's life by giving it a warm, loving home for a few days or weeks? We pay all of the dog's expenses. Your kindness will be repaid with lots of love and affection! As a foster parent, you will NOT be required to bring the dog to weekly adoption events. We want fostering to be easy and rewarding! Every new foster home is a dog's life saved!

The Adoption Process

First and foremost, complete the application here.
We then schedule a quick and easy home check. We are only adopting out to the Southern California area. We save new dogs each week, so we often have dogs that we have yet to post online.
