Cannoli is very sweet!

Border Terrier

Cannoli is a sweet young dog looking for a forever home. He was found wandering the streets in a rough neighborhood without a chip or collar. Cannoli is a friendly and smart little boy. He gets along well with everyone including other dogs and cats. He is very affectionate and has the most endearing personality. We will have him neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped. Cannoli is only about a year old and has already gone through a lot. After a lot of play time, we discovered he would limp on one foot. We had our vet X-ray it, and it turns out he had an old fracture that was ignored and healed incorrectly. We are taking him to a specialist who will reset it. Cannoli is young and healthy and will be good as new very quickly. We will cover all of his vet expenses. Can you give this happy little boy the loving home he deserves? He will repay you with a lot of love and bring a lot of joy into any home. If you live in the Los Angeles area and would like to meet Cannoli, please complete our adoption application found on

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.
