Shiba Inu mix!

Oliver is an incredible dog saved from a high kill shelter at the last minute. He is extremely easy going and friendly. Oliver gets along well with other dogs and even new people he meets. He is very well behaved and doesn't have any destructive habits like digging, chewing or barking. Oliver is very smart, loving and devoted. He has a playful sweet personality. Oliver is about 5 yrs old, and weighs about 12 lbs. We had him checked out by our private vet, and he's perfectly healthy! Oliver would be perfect for first-time dog owners. Oliver is neutered, fully vaccinated including rabies and microchipped. If you'd like to meet Oliver, please complete our adoption application found on We're only adopting out to the Southern California area. Adoption donation $275

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.
