Posted Breed: Greyhound / American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). If ever there were a dog that should have his own animated tv show it would be Shaughnessy. This blue-nosed pit mix with the crossed eyes and extra long tail would be the perfect successor to Scooby-Doo! Mr S is just oozing with charisma. He moved right into one of our amazing foster homes where he is playing non-stop with his new canine best friend. In fact everyone he meets is his new best friend. Hard to believe that he was on death row at an OC shelter and only made it out due to the dedication of a few of the shelter workers and volunteers who brought him to our attention. It's onward and upward for Shaughnessy. The future looks bright for Sachi's newest superstar! Please fill out an adoption application. After review, one of our volunteers will contact you to answer your questions and to set up a home check and a meeting with the dogs. Inquiries WITHOUT the application will NOT be answered.

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Breed: Boxer

      Age: Adult
      Location: Los Angeles, CA
      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Welcome Ella Bean to the Sachi family. This 3 year old checked girl was saved from OC today and is cute as cute can be. Her story is sadly one that is all to familiar. She came to the shelter as a stray, not spayed and obviously already has had a few litters in her few years. Ella currently weighs 44 lbs, but needs to put on a few pounds. This should be easy as she loves food and treats. She does already know “sit”, is eager to please, playful and ready to master her social skills with a little help from her Sachi family. More to come on this girl as we get to know her.

      Breed: Boxer
      Sex: Male Male
      Location: Los Angeles, CA
      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Another mislabeled dog? So what's new? Conrad is simply a slightly under-socialized Boxer who could use a little polishing. On his first day of socialization he was happy to be hanging with the Sachi canine pack. We see a bright future for this Big, German style Boxer with cropped ears. Pretty typical of the breed in every way. He's alert, playful, attentive and has just the right amount of energy. Not enough to drive you crazy, but you won't need to convince him to get up off of the couch and go for a jog with you either. Come and meet Conrad. We bet you'll be impressed!

      Breed: Great Dane-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male

      Location: Los Angeles, CA
      Posted Breed: Great Dane / Mixed (short coat). Lucky is one impressive pup and I'm not just talking about his good looks. This long legged, 5 year old Great Dane mix happens to be a trained seizure dog. Unfortunately for Lucky his former owner passed away, leaving this proud working dog homeless. He's been through a lot emotionally and the experience has taken its toll on our dear boy. Lucky needs time and patience before he's ready to trust a new person. A person who has a history of dealing with "issue" dogs would be essential in providing Lucky with the right environment. Lucky's been doing well on his group walks with other dogs and has demonstrated his intelligence in many ways. If you're an expert dog handler and you're up for a challenge Lucky could wind up being the best dog you ever had. Please fill out an adoption application.

      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Cookie Monster is a little fire cracker of a Boxer. She's full of energy and enthusiasm and is sure to bring joy into any home that she enters. She loves people and although she has had a history of re-activeness to other dogs we're finding that she can be perfectly fine with other pups, as long as they have a calm temperament. This sweet Cookie is very trainable in the right hands and is quite eager to please. You will certainly be rewarded with all the love and affection you can handle if you decide to adopt this tough, but tender Cookie. Please fill out an adoption application.

      Location: Los Angeles, CA
      Posted Breed: Boxer / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Bear has come a long way in his time with Sachi. When we first met the big guy, he was short on social skills and like his ursine namesake he appeared to have just wandered in from the forest. Bear has learned the ways of the world quickly though and he's become quite the civilized gent. He's a 3 year old, low maintenance fellow who is just looking for a nice place to call home.

      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Luke is another one of our under socialized pups who could benefit greatly from being in the right home. This youngster is figuring out that other dogs are not out to hurt him, but it's a slow process and he'll need patient parents to show him the way. Luke has a willingness to learn and youth on his side. All he needs now is you! Please fill out an adoption application.

      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Paloma Picasso is a charismatic, butt wiggling beauty queen, with some Diva tendencies! This compact flashy fawn babe has a personality that is simply "off the chart!" Though she's over the moon about people, her opinion of other pups is not quite as lofty...we're working on it. This four legged work of art would love nothing better than to display herself on your couch! Please fill out an adoption application.

      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Zane must be short for Zany, because this silly youngster is a riot! Zane is a deaf white Boxer with the energy and enthusiasm of a kid at Christmas time. He is one of our Arizona imports whose days were numbered. Not the case anymore, as we at Sachi are dedicated to find the perfect home for this snowy white goofball! He needs work with other dogs right now. his first instinct is to go full force into play mode even when the other pup is not interested. We're working on that and trying to instill some manners that will make life with the "Zany" one more enjoyable. He loves people and we all have saliva covered faces to prove it!

      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Calling all experienced Boxer people! If you really know the breed through and through, you've probably realized how sensitive they are, therefore easy to mess up. No telling what happened in Gordon's past to make him distrust some people, but it's never too late to point a dog in the right direction and help him along to become a model citizen. If you think you have what it takes to give this handsome, misunderstood monkey what he needs, Gordon will be forever grateful. Please fill out an adoption application.
