Hamilton is very sweet

Doxie mix!

Hamilton is a wonderful little dog with a happy upbeat personality. He was taken to a high kill shelter by his owners who discarded him like trash. They said they never bothered to name him, which tells you a lot about them. This loving little dog deserved better! We were able to save him just in the nick of time, and now he's in one of our best foster homes and thriving. Hamilton is only 3 yrs old and weighs about 10 lbs. He loves his foster siblings, is very well behaved, house trained and quiet. He doesn't have any destructive habits like digging or chewing. When we first rescued Hamilton, he had a wobbly gait and a large benign mass in his groin. When we had him neutered, it was removed which improved his walk tremendously. We also took him to a neurologist for a full work up. Like all dogs with long backs, he needs to be cautious about jumping on and off things. Hamilton would love to have someone who works from home or is retired. He is great with all dogs he meets, and loves to play with foster siblings, but would also do well as an only dog. Hamilton is a treasure and joy to have in the home. He is very loving, devoted and smart. He's fully vaccinated and microchipped.

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.
