 This shelter is overwhelmed with dogs who desperately need to find homes as the county
 shelters in Los Angeles give limited time for these dogs to find homes before being put down.  

  Gunter appears to be a Golden Retriever mix.  He is friendly and playful. He is full grown at 54 pounds. Gunter is very fun loving and so he will do best with an active family without very young kids. His new family will need to continue his housebreaking and obedience training. He seems to be friendly with other dogs as well as cats. Please lets find him a great home!

Roxy is a Wirehaired Terrier mix who was rescued from an area shelter when she found herself homeless at around 8 years old. She's now safe and sound in foster care and doing great. She weighs around 25 lbs. She has plenty of spunk and loves to go for walks around the neighborhood and rides in the car. She walks very well on the leash and also has great manners. She knows basic commands like sit, and waits nicely for her meals. Roxy loves to snuggle almost as much as she loves treats. She'll do almost anything for a tasty treat and loves to cuddle up on the couch with her foster family. Roxy is currently living with another younger dog who is trying with all his might to get her to play, play, play, but Roxy is more than happy just to hang out and relax with her temporary brother. She'd do just fine in a home with other dogs who wouldn't mind sharing the couch or doggy bed. Roxy also tested well with cats while living in the shelter she really didn't pay much attention to them. She'd likely do well in a home with cats after a proper introduction. Roxy came to the shelter with some patchy skin, but she's now on a healthy diet and some antibiotics to clear it up and she's feeling better than ever. Though she is not symptomatic, she tested low positive with Lyme Disease and is also on a round of antibiotics to knock it out. Otherwise, Roxy is very healthy and is heart worm negative. Roxy is spayed and vaccinated and will be microchipped prior to going to her forever home. Please lets find her a loving home!

Rhett is a Labrador Retriever.  He has got quite a sad story. He was spotted with his friend Scarlett on the side of the road during morning rush hour traffic. Tons of people saw them but no one stopped to help. The Scarlett (a Rottie) was just laying down with the Rhett standing over her, licking and nudging her. We heard from a few people who saw them, that at least one, if not both, of them had been hit by a car. Unfortunately, BARC was called to the scene to pick them up before any of our volunteers could get there. They were picked up early morning and we assumed were on their way to immediately for vet care. But the the animal control officer (not a vet)  picked them up felt that they were ok and didn't need to be brought in. As a result, these two babies sat in the back of a BARC truck until close that day. The next day one of our volunteers went to BARC to see them and couldn't believe what he saw. The Lab was clearly injured, with his mouth swollen and dripping blood and the Rottie had a prominent limp to go with her extreme malnourishment. Seeing the condition that these dogs were in we asked, really begged, if we could get a medical release on them so that we could get them to our vet for immediate treatment. After repeated requests by us and by friends of Scout's Honor that work for BARC, we were shockingly told that the vet on duty at BARC determined that they were fine and didn't need help. So, these poor babies who were obviously injured, sat at BARC in a small, dark, wet jail cell for night 2. We then contacted the Director of BARC who stepped in and helped us get these two out of BARC. Without his help, these two would still be sitting there and suffering until their stray hold was up. Rhett is very scared and learning to trust. He has made huge progress just in the 24 hours we have had him. He's just scared and unsure of things, but there is not a mean bone in his body. He seems to really like Scarlett and lets his guard down a little when she is around and he sees her getting attention. He's just a sensitive boy who needs someone that can be patient with him and teach him that not all people are bad. He a super handsome boy with amazing eyes. We are guessing he is about 3 years old. He would likely do great with another dog and that dog would likely build his confidence. Upon examination by our vet it was discovered that Rhett had at least 30 puncture wounds in his mouth with some on his gums. He was in no doubt a lot of pain and was very scared. He is being treated by our vet and is finally on pain meds. He is resting comfortably at our vet's office in a quiet area and just trying to decompress and get better. Please lets find him a great home!

No paw left behind our mission!

{Please keep in mind a dog is lifetime commitment. They need attention, love and time just like we do. In addition, adding a pet to the family does cost money in the way of food, health care, training,etc. So before adopting make sure you are willing to make that kind of commitment and have the resources to do so.}
