Huckleberry is very sweet!

Doxie mix!

Huckleberry is an adorable young dog who was placed on the euthanasia list at a high kill shelter. He was found as a stray, and patiently waited for his family to come save him, but no one ever came. When we heard his story, he had only hours to live. We were able to get a volunteer there just in the nick of time. Sweet Huckleberry is now in a wonderful home, where he is perfectly well behaved. He gets along well with the other dogs, is house trained, quiet, loving and devoted. He has the most beautiful and soulful chocolate brown eyes. Huckleberry is very smart, easy going and loving. He's a very easy dog to adopt! We will have him neutered, chipped and fully vaccinated including rabies. We had him examined by our vet, and he is perfectly healthy. He weighs about 17 lbs and is about 3 yrs old. If you'd like to meet Huckleberry, please complete our adoption application found on We're only adopting out to the Southern California area. Adoption donation $275.

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.
