Henry is shy!

Doxie mix!

Henry is a handsome young Dachshund mix rescued from a high kill shelter. Henry was likely living on the streets for awhile as he is extremely skinny and shy around people. He's about a year old, so will easily overcome this and move on with his life. Henry has already made tremendous progress in his foster home, and is less skittish but still has a ways to go. Henry tries to curl himself up into a little ball or burrow under his blanket. Henry needs a guardian angel who will give him the love he needs to feel confident and safe. Henry is a very good boy, and otherwise well behaved. He has gorgeous chestnut colored fur and the most soulful big brown eyes. Henry has already gone through so much in his young life and deserves the very best! Henry is neutered, fully vaccinated and chipped. Henry is being fostered with another small dog and gets along well with him. If you'd like to meet Henry, please email We're only adopting out to the Southern California area. Adoption donation $150

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.
