Buster loves to play!

Shiba Inu mix

Buster is a playful, intelligent dog looking for a new home. Buster's family grew tired of him and tied him to a pipe in the carport 24/7. He had no room to move around and sat on a little doormat for months. Neighbors finally reported them and asked us to save Buster. Our volunteer was heartbroken when she saw this beautiful dog living with such cruelty and isolation. When she brought Buster home, he was the happiest little dog! He ran around the yard curiously exploring everything. He loves to play with his foster brothers and is very well behaved. Buster is intelligent, friendly, house trained and healthy. He loves to be around people and would do well with another active, playful dog or active family. Buster loves to cuddle and is very loving. He is under 2 years old, neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped. Buster weighs about 14 lbs. He doesn't have any bad habits like digging, chewing or barking excessively. Buster has put his former life behind him and is an amazing young dog! If you'd like to give Buster the life he deserves, and live in the Southern California area, please complete our adoption application found on dexterfoundation.com 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.
