Lab mix

EMERGENCY FOSTER HOME NEEDED ASAP! Dave is a great family dog looking for a new home! Dave has been living with a family with children and gets along well with everyone. Dave is a big (about 80lbs) sweet Labrador/shepherd mix. He is neutered, healthy and has all his shots. Dave loves snuggling, riding in the car, playing with his bull mastiff girlfriend across the street, working with his trainer, and being active with his humans. He is potty trained, walks great on a leash and rides nicely in the car. Dave would be a great family dog or would do well with an active person who'd love a hiking or jogging buddy. Dave is friendly to other dogs he meets on the street. Dave like many big dogs has a strong prey drive, and cannot be around cats or other small animals. Other than that, Dave is a happy, loving, well-behaved goofball who needs a new forever home. If you'd like to meet Dave, please complete our adoption application found on We're only adopting to the Southern California area.

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.
