Jaxson is well behaved!

Sweet Boston!

Jaxson is a delightfully well behaved Boston terrier boy rescued from a high kill shelter just in the nick of time. Jaxson is friendly to everyone he meets, very smart and affectionate. Jaxson is one of those rare Boston terriers that was born with a tail. We think it gives him character! Jaxson is being fostered with other dogs, and does well meeting new people. Jaxson is very smart and has a funny Boston personality. We had him examined by our vet, fully vaccinated, neutered and chipped. He is a healthy 8 yr old, 20 lb boy! Jaxson isn't a barker and is fairly quiet. He walks nicely on a leash and rides well in the car. Jaxson is a perfect gentleman, is house trained and very well behaved. He's very smart, and gets along well with other dogs and kids. His only bad habit is that he will eat any food left within his reach. This is common for dogs who had to scavenge for every scrap of food just to survive on the streets. This usually goes away once they learn they will never be hungry again. Jaxson is otherwise a turnkey dog and would be perfect for anyone looking for an amazing companion who doesn't have the time to train a new dog. If you'd like to meet Jaxson, please complete our adoption application found on We're only adopting out to the Southern California area. 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.
