Miley lost her mom

Maltese girl!

Miley is a sweet little Maltese girl rescued from a high kill shelter just in the nick of time. After we rescued Miley, we found her the perfect forever home. Unfortunately, her new mom died unexpectedly and Miley was once again looking for a home. Miley is very loving and devoted. She goes to work with her foster mom, and gets along well with everyone she meets and all the other dogs. She's great around cats, is house trained, walks nicely on a leash and generally well behaved. Miley would do best in a home where someone works from home or is retired. Or Miley would be happy going to work and near her new parents. She'll make an excellent Chief Cuddling Officer and has the recommendations to prove it! Miley is only 7 years old and weighs just 8 lbs. We had her teeth cleaned, and she is spayed, fully vaccinated including rabies and microchipped. If you'd like to meet Miley, 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.
