Lego loves to cuddle!

Sweet Senior!

Lego is a 13 year old Jack Russell mix who was rescued from a high kill shelter. He got lost from his family and patiently waited for them to save him. No one ever came. We were able to save Lego in the nick of time! He's a sweet, mellow senior looking for a nice place to spend his golden years. Lego weighs approximately 40 lbs, walks nicely on a leash and travels well in a car. He is super friendly and good with other dogs he meets on the street. Lego does have a cataract in one eye and suffers from arthritis, but gets around just fine. Lego loves to take naps, loves to cuddle in bed and follow you from room to room. His ideal home would be with someone who lives on the first floor or doesn’t have a lot of stairs. Lego is quiet and loves to relax, cuddle up and fall asleep. He's well behaved and easy going. He is friendly to everyone he meets. Lego is micro-chipped, neutered and up to date on his shots. If you can give this sweet senior a home, he will repay you with lots of love and devotion. Older gentlemen deserve to be loved too! It is very rewarding to give help a senior dog, and nothing can compare to the love and gratitude they give. If you'd like to meet Lego, please complete our adoption application found on We're only adopting out to the Southern California area. Adoption donation $100

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.
