Penelope is very sweet!

MinPin girl!

Penelope is a super sweet little girl looking for a new home. Her former family didn't have time for her and asked us to find her a new home. Penelope was a little scared initially but has really come out of her shell in her foster home. Penelope gets along well with other dogs and is very loving and friendly once she gets to know you. She's a healthy 1 yr old girl! We had her spayed, fully vaccinated and microchipped. Penelope is house trained, quiet and well behaved. She isn't hyper like some small dogs, and doesn't have any destructive habits like digging or chewing. Penelope weighs only 10 lbs, walks nicely on a leash, and rides well in a car. We're only adopting out to the Southern Calfornia area. If you'd like to meet Penelope, 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.
