Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Prepare for your heart to melt when you meet our beautiful golden girl Sunshine. Her sweet, shy demeanor longing to be loved is simply irresistible. A petite pit bull terrier around 10 years young and aged to perfection, Sunny is the perfect size companion at 45 pounds. This incredible survivor is a gal who never ceases to amaze us, and she’s ready to share her specialness with forever folks who are special too. Sound like you? Sunshine’s foster parents say she’s the best furry family member, so quiet, mellow and loving. She remains very shy and timid, and it's heartwarming to see a low tail wag of excitement when you come home. If she wants more attention, she'll give your calf a little nudge. Sunshine is extremely sensitive to loud noises and is looking for a calm, quiet home environment to enjoy forevermore. Sun is a big fan of food, and you wouldn't believe how excited she gets when it's meal time :) A quiet girl herself, she barks her joy during food prep. Hehe! Sunny really loves her canine foster family too and hopes for a calm older dog around her own size or bigger who will enjoy being with her. She thinks cats and small animals provide lots of fun to chase so will be best suited for a home without these friends. Turtles with their slow calm energy however, are A-okay in her book. She just wants a peaceful home with no young (loud) children and parents who like to go for walks and spend time together. Do you have the perfect future for our deserving ray of light? Ready to fill your home and heart with golden love this year? Reach out and see why we are all so smitten … ADOPTIONS@WAGGINGDOG.ORG Southern California only please http://www.facebook.com/waggingdogrescue/photos_stream?tab=photos_albums http://waggingdog.org

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.

      Posted Breed: Bulldog / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). This guy’s morning walks go something like this: “Ok, I walked a few feet. Now back to the house for BREAKFAST!” “Ok, ok, I peed. Now BREAKFAST?” “Fine. I walked a little more. Now can I please have BREAKFAST?!!!! What about SECOND BREAKFAST???” So his foster mom made up a little song that she sings to him while he walks: “Because he’s all about that breakfast, ‘bout that breakfast, ‘bout that breakfast…”, and he wiggles his butt to the beat while he walks. It’s freakin’ adorable. As is Mr. Breakfast. He’s one of those dogs that’ll make you giggle with every expression on his hippo head. And as his foster mom will tell you, he’s one of her favorite dogs of all time (one of ours too!). You can see his doggy soul through his eyes – every thought he has comes through loud and clear, especially when he’s thinking about breakfast. This big, beefy dude is built like a linebacker – low slung, stubby, and a solid 80 pound 5 year old. And he’s a teddy bear – easy going, well behaved, and sweet as pancakes. That said, he’s sensitive to small children and a little too interested in cats (BREAKFAST?), so we’re looking for an adult feline-free home with people who understand how to be the leader he needs to be his happiest self. Now – Mr. Breakfast has a super power. He’s one of the few dogs who knows sign language. Thanks to a hack job on his poor ears resulting in bilateral TECA (total ear canal ablation) surgery, he’s officially deaf. It doesn’t slow him down a bit – he’s a wonderful communicator! Mr. B gets along well with dogs of all sizes and loves playtime with his pals (which is the funniest thing to watch – he’s like a hoppy potamus!). He loves belly rubs, is super loyal, and as you might imagine – when you take him on (short) walks, he’s a people magnet. He loves the attention, almost as much as breakfast, and his tail wags his whole body. We think he’ll do best with a forever family with an above average understanding of dogs; people who live a leadership lifestyle and can provide boundaries for the hippo for life. A well matched, calm companion dog or a few might be nice, but not necessary for this people lover. Mr. B does enjoy a yard and wouldn’t mind having his own outdoor space in his forever home. Would you like to meet our resident beefcake? Drop us a line ASAP! ADOPTIONS@WAGGINGDOG.ORG Southern CA only please

      Koa

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Terrier / Spitz / Mixed (medium coat). We all have “the best dog I ever had” stories - and our DiscoverMe Doggie KOA is yours in the making. This 19lb, 6-year-old faux fox fur pup was given up at the Carlsbad shelter thanks to irresponsible owners/adopters. Through the DiscoverMe Project in partnership with the County of San Diego Department of Animal Services – Carlsbad shelter Wagging Dog Rescue is giving him a Get Outta Jail Free card for two whole weeks! *Koa will be returning to the Carlsbad shelter on October 10th unless we find a long term foster or a forever family by the end of his stay in the DMP!* Nooooo! Koa is WAY too nice a dog for the shelter. He’s SUCH a good boy. He’s ultra responsive to verbal cues, highly food motivated, already knows a few tricks, and LOVES to play with other similarly-sized friendly dogs. He happily chases balls but you’ll have to bribe him to get the balls back BOL! He’s also quite the handsome boy. Koa’s coat is thick and luxurious, more like a fox pelt than dog hair, and his soft puppy-like ears and curly tail make him a real charmer. Don’t ask us what breed he is - Koa is One of a Kind. And yes folks, he’s house broken. In fact, this dog has truly impressive manners. Koa hasn’t shown any destructive tendencies - not even chewing (or ripping the stuffing out of) toys, and he has EXCELLENT leash manners. When he needs to ‘go outside,’ he’ll let you know with a meaningful look (or failing that, a lick on the elbow - he communicates very clearly). Not particularly prone to barking, and not sound sensitive, we think he’ll do well in a quiet home (that wants to stay quiet). He’s a great companion, affectionate but not clingy, and considering he’s been in the shelter far too long with a lot of upheaval in a very short period of time, it’s amazing how chill he is. That said, he does like to be in the same room with you and will voice his opinion if kept out of the fun. And Koa is all about fun! Toys, balls, bones - as soon as he’s up in the morning, it’s playtime. His enthusiasm is catching, and watching him go is a great way to start the day. Since Koa is on the smaller side, we think he’d do best in a home with older children if any, and a well-matched companion dog who likes to play would really be stellar. He’d love a yard but doesn’t need one if provided with adequate walks. Koa needs grain-free, chicken-free food but otherwise is a super easy keeper. Is Koa stealing your heart already? (Happens fast!) Feel free to contact Wagging Dog Rescue with any questions, including how to become Koa’s Foster Family! ADOPTIONS@WAGGINGDOG.ORG Find more Koa pictures here - https://www.facebook.com/waggingdogrescue/posts/1677553348935826 <3 ABOUT The DiscoverMe Project The DiscoverMe Project is a new program that allows sheltered dogs from the County of San Diego Dept. of Animal Services - Carlsbad Shelter to go into temporary 2-week foster care with an approved Wagging Dog Rescue foster home so they can get a break from the stresses of being kenneled while providing mental, emotional and physical relief. While in foster care, we are able to learn more about the dog when in a normal home environment, which doesn’t always align with behavior seen in a stressful kennel environment. We’re able to share that valuable information with shelter staff and potential adopters in order to aid shelter marketing and adopter selection. Through rigorous marketing and promotion, we ultimately hope not to return the DiscoverMe Dog to the shelter but instead to see that animal safely in the care of a forever family or reputable rescue with a foster care provider. If you’re interested in temporarily fostering a DiscoverMe Dog, please contact us today! If you think the DMP is a great community partnership project and would like to help us recover some of our costs for our DiscoverMe Doggies, #taxdeductible donations can be made via PayPal - DONATIONS@WAGGINGDOG.ORG Southern California adopters only please! http://facebook.com/waggingdogrescue/photos_albums http://waggingdog.org

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Meet our ever so sweet darling – Darla! This pretty little lady is even prettier in the fur. She’s a petite gal, under 50 pounds, in a gorgeous white and sable coat. She had a rough past that left her scarred inside and out, but her future is bright and beautiful just like herself. Darla brings a smile to your face with every glance her way, and she’s eager to meet the family who will love and nurture her til the end of days. Darling Darla is around 3 years young and she's super playful when she's in her comfort zone. Even with all that she’s been through, she’s such a well mannered girl. She’s very easy to care for and doesn’t complain about a thing. She enjoys the friendship of other dogs with mellow energy and would do fine with a well matched male companion dog in an experienced home. That said, we think she could easily be an only pet and would probably excel as one provided that her people aren’t gone all day. Darla met a semi-feral barn cat in her foster home and was such a polite and calm girl! We're pretty sure she'd be able to live with a savvy feline friend in her future home. She has a slight hitch in her step thanks to whatever left that big scar on her leg, but she still loves her walks and frolicking with friends as long as she gets a break now and then. Quiet and chill herself, Darla’s looking for dog savvy folks to match. She’d prefer a peaceful adult home environment with low foot traffic. A yard is a must because too many walks on hard surfaces are not good for her bum leg. She can be sensitive to loud and sudden sounds so a tranquil neighborhood is desired. Sometimes Lil D can be timid around new people, especially men, but with patience and a little bit of time she learns to trust the people who care about her. She promises to reward your effort with lots of kisses and cuddles for the rest of her life, and snuggling up with this one is definitely worth it! Darla’s great in the car and stellar in her crate. She’s been learning patience and impulse control while in her foster home as well as the basics, such as sit, down, shake, bang and rollover (for belly rubs)! She’s very gentle with people and just a gentle soul to begin with, and we hope her past becomes a forgotten memory soon. If you’re a mellow, experienced family with a tranquil setting, home and yard, please reach out to us today and ask about our charming girl! adoptions@waggingdog.org Southern California only please http://waggingdog.org/ http://www.facebook.com/waggingdogrescue/photos_stream?tab=photos_albums

      Breed: Shih Tzu
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Shih Tzu (medium coat). Through no fault of her own, this lil lady has come back to her WDR rescue family. Chloe, formerly known as Presley, was in a home for the last 5 years after being adopted in December 2012. You might recall that she originally came to us from the OC shelter where she'd apparently been hit by a car and had a broken pelvis. Thanks to an incredibly generous sponsor who covered her costly repair surgery, Chloe made a full recovery in one of our foster homes and then found a family to adopt her. Unfortunately people's situations can change, and Chloe's mom felt she could no longer safely provide her a home, so she's back with us and in her original foster home and we hope to find her another family so she can be truly home for the holidays. Chloe is around 8 years young and still looks just as she did when she first left us. She's been a cherished indoor dog since placement and was very well taken care of. She was an only pet with adult parents but had nearby family with beautiful young children and another small female dog who came by often to visit. We think this sweet gal would love to find another quiet, chill home to live out the rest of her life. She had a yard in her last home, but with regular walks, we think she'd also be fine without a private outdoor space. She gets along great with other dogs although super big ones (like the Dane in her foster home) make her more timid. She loooooves people. We hope that her next family won't be gone all the time as we know this type of upheaval can be very stressful for a dog. Chloe is a mellow lady and a nice companion pet as most of her type can be. She's cute as a button and patiently waiting for the right forever family to come scoop her up. Please reach out today if you'd like to add this charcoal beauty to your forever fam. adoptions@waggingdog.org Southern CA only please http://waggingdog.org/ http://www.facebook.com/waggingdogrescue/photos_stream?tab=photos_albums

      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Poodle (Miniature) / Mixed (short coat). Say hello to our sweet senior puffball – Sharkey! Sharktoof came to us with one immediately apparent feature: One giant canine tooth sticking straight up that wasn’t at all comfortable for the little guy. The tooth is gone but the name remains, and we’ve been getting to know this lovebug who doesn’t have a mean bone in his 10 pound poodley body! Estimated around 10 years young, Sharktoof is active, alert and cheerful - taking nothing for granted. It’s heartwarming to see how much he appreciates having a warm bed, people to curl up next to, and the stability of knowing he’ll always get his meals on time. His tooth-less grin will greet you at the door as he wags his nubby little tail with sheer joy! Sharkey has a big heart and poodle brains. He’s extremely smart, food motivated and easy to train. He willingly shares his bed with big lug pugs (who snore), and we think he’d do well in a low to moderately active family with someone who is home often and has one or two other friendly, mellow dogs. He hasn’t been tested around cats but has proven to be very dog and kid social. He’s the kind of dog that will make friends with the mailman rather than bark at him. :) Even though he doesn’t let anything slow him down, Sharkey has a heart murmur and takes a pill for his ticker twice a day. He’s otherwise in good shape and has more than enough energy for two walks and a run around the yard every day. Despite a neglected past, he’s emerged with zero anxiety issues, and even though he’ll be the most appreciative recipient of belly rubs and pets, he’s okay on his own or with a dog buddy too. What wins us over the most though is that Sharkey clearly has such a positive outlook on life. We expect him to have several good golden years ahead and hope he’ll soon find his forever family so he can get started on his future. We think Sharkey is very wise. And if you need a reminder that the world is full of good people, hope and love, he’s a companion who will give you that message daily. We all need Sharktoof in our lives so if you have room in yours, please reach out today!

      Breed: Bullmastiff-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Bullmastiff / Mixed (short coat). Oh Shermie… This gentle 95 lb. giant has been part of the WDR family since January 2013. We plucked him from a municipal LA shelter and adopted him to a family that spring. We thought we made a good choice for our boy, but alas he was returned to us in August 2014. His family wasn’t able to help him with his separation anxiety (http://dogtime.com/separation-anxiety.html); in fact, they didn’t try even though they promised to give him their all. Instead they gave him all of their food and treats but no leadership, exercise or mental stimulation to go with it. He came back to his rescue at 112 lbs., depressed, obese, and having forgotten how to DOG. We were crushed. With the help of a team of dedicated volunteers who spent time with Sherman at his boarding kennel, the next several months brought Sherman back to himself and reminded him about things that balanced dogs like to do (such as using their noses and brains, enjoying the company of other life forms, enjoying the walk). Unfortunately Sherm’s distress over being alone in a home environment kept him out of a family and home life. Until Allison. Lucky Sherman was able to move to our most skilled foster care provider’s home where he's worked on crate skills, inside manners, and has a bevy of doggie friends! We're SO proud of him and thrilled that this beautiful, sweet dog finally gets to enjoy some of the luxuries of a pampered house pet. And we’re so grateful to his amazing foster mom Allison, with Peticularly Perfect - North San Diego Pet Care, for giving him this opportunity and teaching him these valuable lessons. Sherm’s been working hard on his distress level when people are gone and has learned to respect the boundaries that have been established. Even though he’s a big mushy love, he’s still got a stubborn streak as wide as his forehead ;) and like most blockheads, he'll test limits every now and again. The Sherminator is ready leave his foster momma's care, and we hope he can find a FOREVER family who can take over where she leaves off. She’ll ensure his future family has all of the info they need to succeed, and WDR will do everything possible to make his next move a forever success. We’re looking for DOG SAVVY, large breed experienced folks in Southern CA with another well matched mellow companion dog to keep the boy company. A clear understanding of the importance of leadership in the human-dog relationship is a must. Homeowners preferred in a single family residence with secure backyard. Renters will need renter’s insurance and landlord approval. Sherm prefers a feline free environment. The big love is bomb proof with humans of any size, the most loving and gentle giant around. He'd be super excited to have a large family of his own very special people. If you’re interested in being the forever family that our Shermie has been waiting forever to meet, please inquire - ADOPTIONS@WAGGINGDOG.ORGSouthern CA only please

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Our sweet tan and white Biscuit boy is a not-so-little 11 lb chichi who’s around 10 years young, and if you’ve ever shared your life with a Chihuahua, you’ll know that’s the prime! 10 Things We Love About Biscuit 1. He’s a real cuddle bug and loves to snuggle wherever you are. 2. His youthful self has so much fun playing and rolling around on the ground for belly rubs and tickles. 3. When he sleeps, he has little snores that are guaranteed to make you laugh. 4. Biscuit gets excited to go on walks, to go in the car, to get food, to walk into another room, pretty much to do anything! 5. All of the above cause him to stick his tongue out in the biggest smile. It's the best. 6. His foster mom thinks his face looks like a little blueberry muffin. 7. Since his oral surgery, Biscuit has a little underbite which makes him even CUTER! 8. He's not big on toys - there are tons in the house. What he really loves to play with are socks! He bats them around and will sometimes nibble on them (very gently, he's never punctured a hole in any socks to date) and when he gets sleepy, he'll even use them as a pillow. 9. He knows that you’ll carry him up and down the stairs if he gives you those big puppy-dog eyes, so he waits, very excitedly, to be picked up. 10. When you eventually give in, he’ll wrap his paws around your arm in a Biscuit sized hug. He’s so cute, you’ll laugh, you’ll cry – your heart will just burst with love for the lil nugget. Biscuit gets along with most dogs and will keep a cautious distance when first meeting, just until he knows they’re friendly. He’s about the same way with kids and adults which we think shows a great deal of sense. Not yappy in the least, he might bark with joy when you come home and then it’s cuddle time, or nap time (there’s a lot of nap time). We’ve been filling in a couple education gaps, like crate training, and he came to us with excellent leash and car manners. Yay! After working on Biscuit’s return to good health, his bags are packed and he’s ready to hop in your car for a ride to his forever home. He had dental surgery and now has a healthy mouth, and after seeing a cardiologist, he’s doing great on daily meds to help with heart disease. Biscuit enjoys life as a cherished house pet, but what he really wants is to be your devoted BFF. He’s looking for a quiet home environment with or without another doggie pal, and we think he'd be fine with cats. He’s a low energy, low maintenance kinda guy dreaming of a mellow family to call his own. If you need a loyal, lap-warming friend to fill your life with enthusiasm over the smallest things (Biscuit reminds us all to take nothing for granted), contact us today to meet Biscuit boy!

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Meet WDR's Grampa! This sweet guy is an ancient, deaf, low slung 70 pounder who’s stolen the hearts of everyone he’s met. Like so many dogs who are ‘thrown away’ after a lifetime of loving service, his only flaw is old age and some of the ailments that accrue with years. His bones are arthritic, especially in the back end, and he was diagnosed with leaky gut. The right meds and nutrition have already made a huge impact, and we think he’s got plenty of quality time left. He’s seeing a holistic vet for supplements and even better nutrition tweaks, and ideally his future family will be totally into canine nutrition as well. Grampa is available to be adopted by a big-hearted forever family, or placed as a Forever Foster Dog with Wagging Dog Rescue. Gramps is, well, a lot like my Gramps (or your Gramps). He snores away most of the day but, unlike my Grampa, this one loooves his walks. If he feels they’re overdue, he will GALLOP to the front door to get your attention :) Just once around the block, 2-3 times a day, is all he asks for and then it’s back to snoring. He also puts his Game Face on for company and seems to be especially drawn to men (and those who throw him cookies are the best!). Other favorite hobbies include chewing on antlers, sticking his nose out of the car window, and catching airborne treats faster than you’d believe possible for an old guy lol. Even when he’s snoozing, our docile Grampa dog really appreciates having people around. He’s fine being home alone for a few hours while you’re at work, but he’d really rather be in whatever room you are, unobtrusively snuggled in a soft bed and offering unlimited moral support. He’d be soooo happy if he found folks who were home a lot, worked from home or were retired! Gramps is great with dogs and cats and probably just about all other life forms. He’s super tolerant of his furry companions but also willing to say “Enough!”. We’d like to see him in a calm home environment with older children if any. Too many stairs may be difficult so a one-story or ground level accommodation would be best. We know he enjoys his foster home backyard and would like for him to have one in his future home too. According to his Foster Parents, “He doesn’t mind being dressed up, or living with a bossy Chihuahua, or walking in the rain, or getting his regular shots of Adequan (once a month), or having his feet or ears cleaned – he’s really an easy dog to be around.” All he asks for is love. Contact us today if you’re the big-hearted family Gramps has been waiting for or if you’d like to know more about being a Forever Foster Parent! ADOPTIONS@WAGGINGDOG.ORG So.
