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.

Brianna loves to cuddle!

Senior Shih Tzu

Brianna is an adorable senior Shih Tzu girl rescued from a high kill shelter on her last day. When we heard that she wasn't going to make it out of the shelter alive, we rushed a volunteer over to save her! Brianna is a very loving and devoted little girl. She gets along well with everyone she meets and loves other dogs. Brianna is nearly blind, but that doesn't stop her from getting around just fine. Dogs primarily use their sense of smell to navigate, and Brianna is a trooper! Brianna is pee pad trained and doesn't have any destructive habits. She loves to take naps in the sun or sit in your lap. Brianna has a lot of love to give and will bring a lot of joy into any home. She's very well behaved and easy to care for. Brianna needs a guardian angel who realizes that older girls need love too! She is about 9 yrs old, weighs just 6 lbs, is fully vaccinated, spayed and microchipped. If you live in the Los Angeles area and would like to meet Brianna, please complete our adoption application found on dexter foundation.com 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.
