Kobe is a Shorkie!

Shih Tzu/Yorkie

Kobe is a 1 yr old Shih Tzu/Yorkie mix which is an expensive designer breed also known as a Shorkie! Shorkies are dedicated, loyal and loving companions that make excellent watchdogs, are great with kids and adults and love to cuddle or sit on your lap. Kobe's family was moving and could not take him with them, so asked us to find him a home. Kobe is incredibly cute both is looks and personality. He is still just a puppy, and needs training, but is generally well behaved. Like all young dogs, Kobe loves to play and has a lot of energy. He gets along well with other dogs and is fine meeting new people. We had him neutered, fully vaccinated and chipped. Kobe weighs just 7 lbs and is very sweet. If you have the time to train a puppy, Kobe will make a wonderful dog for you. If you have an active small dog that would like a buddy, Kobe would love to meet your pup! We're only adopting out to the Southern California area. If you'd like to meet Kobe, please complete our adoption application found on dexterfoundation.com Adoption donation $350

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.
