Pinkie loves to cuddle!

Mini Poodle

Pinkie is the most delightful little 2-3 year old Miniature Poodle who was rescued from a high kill shelter. She was found as a stray and was in very bad shape. Loving staff have given her a much needed bath and shaved down her fur, which will grow back into a beautiful coat just in time for the winter months. She’s been examined by our vet and is healthy and ready for her now home. She’d be a great addition to your household if you’re searching for a small dog who’s active and playful, well behaved, and dog friendly. She is very smart and prances around like a show pony. Pinkie is just adorable! If you could use some canine companionship, Pinkie is the perfect choice – she is a happy, affectionate little dog who loves to cuddle with her people. She has been micro-chipped, spayed and vaccinated. If you'd like to meet Pinkie, please complete our adoption application found on We're only adopting out to the Southern California area. Adoption donation $300.

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.
