Charlie is a great family dog!

Terrier boy!

Charlie is a gorgeous 6 year old male Terrier mix who weighs about 15 pounds. He has the most beautiful butterscotch colored eyes, and has chocolate brown/chestnut fur with silver fur around his face (it’s not gray hair). Charlie was originally rescued from a high kill shelter over 5 years ago and was adopted by a wonderful couple. Unfortunately, they have recently met with some very difficult circumstances and are no longer able to care for him, so Charlie is now searching for his new forever family. He is well socialized, is very well behaved, is house trained, he doesn’t mark, and he’s dog friendly and kid friendly. Charlie is so sweet, playful, and friendly – he’d be a fabulous family dog! He is fully vaccinated, neutered and chipped. He isn't hyper and doesn't have any destructive habits like digging or chewing. Charlie loves to cuddle! If you would like to meet him, 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.
