We are dedicated to rescuing dogs in the Southern California Area and placing them in a loving, forever home.

Bear is very friendly!

MaltiPoo boy!

Bear is a sweet, friendly little dog looking for a foster and forever home. Bear's owners dumped him on the streets to fend for himself. Little Bear begged for scraps, and eventually a neighbor was able to reach one of our volunteers. We had this happy little boy examined by our private vet, vaccinated, chipped and fixed. Bear is perfectly healthy, weighs about 10 lbs and is about 1 1/2 yrs old. Bear is good around other dogs, children, men and strangers. He is well behaved and smart. Bear will bring a lot of love and joy into any home. He has the cutest personality and sweetest smile. He loves to cuddle, but isn't clingy or needy. Can you foster Bear, or know someone who can? Bear is looking for a foster and forever home in the Los Angeles area. If you'd like to meet Bear, please complete our adoption application found on dexterfoundation.com 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.
