Petey is a great dog!

Tibetan Spaniel

Petey is a friendly 6 yr old Tibetan Spaniel boy rescued from a high kill shelter. He has an easy going personality and is highly intelligent. Petey bonds easily and is great with kids and other dogs. He's affectionate and devoted without being clingy. Petey is quiet, house trained and walks nicely on a leash. He's neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped. Petey weighs about 12 lbs, and will be an easy addition to any home. Petey will make a great dog for first time dog owners. If you'd like to meet Petey, and live in the Los Angeles area, please complete our adoption application found on dexterfoundation.com 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.
