Pepe LePew

Japanese Chin!

Pepe LePew is a friendly young Japanese Chin looking for a new home. When this sweet boy came to us a stray, he was in pretty rough shape. Pepe wasn't chipped and didn't have an ID tag. After an extensive search, we were unable to find his owners. Pepe was extremely underweight and matted, so he was probably on his own for a while. We took Pepe to our private vet for a full workup, vaccinations, neuter, and microchip. Pepe is about a year and a half old, healthy, happy and well adjusted. Pepe gets along well with other dogs and is well behaved. He's very loving, smart and loyal. Pepe has a funny personality and will bring a lot of joy and entertainment into any home. He isn't barky or clingy like some small dogs. If you'd like to meet Pepe LePew, please complete our adoption application found on We're only adopting out to the Los Angeles area. Adoption donation $300. We are also looking for a foster home, so please email if you can foster Pepe. Thanks!

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.
