The Dexter Foundation: Serving Los Angeles County and Southern California
We are dedicated to rescuing dogs in the Southern California Area and placing them in a loving, forever home.

Penny and Ninja

Bonded sisters!

Penny and Ninja are very sweet Parti Poodle girls surrendered to a high kill shelter by their family. They had landlord issues, and could not afford to move. Penny and Ninja were terrified in the shelter. The girls had been with their family their entire lives and were suddenly in a cold rainy cage. Penny and Ninja are sweet but understandably a little shy. Ninja is blind and Penny is her seeing eye dog. Penny helps Ninja navigate her surroundings, so the girls need to be adopted together. We took them to our private vet for a full workup. Both are recuperating from kennel cough, and ear and eye infections. Penny and Ninja are only 8 years old, fully vaccinated and microchipped. They weigh about 10 lbs each and are very loving, quiet and well behaved. They are house trained and their foster mom is helping them learn the doggie door. These lovely dogs need a quiet home, where they can feel safe and loved again. If you live in the Southern California area and would like to meet them, please complete our adoption application found on We are only adopting them as a bonded pair. Adoption donation $300 for the pair.

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.
