Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Although not quite a senior, Molly does qualify for our Seniors 4 Seniors program. For further information, please click on the Seniors 4 Seniors button on the left of this page. Hello there! My name is Molly and I am looking for my soul mate :-) I am seven years old and a huge love muffin! My mom was a pretty and petite black and white Staffie mix who had the best personality ever! She was adopted to a wonderful family with children. I was actually adopted once, but my family didn't take me out very often, so i thought I was doing my job when I would growl at people who came over. I didn't know who the strangers were who came over so I just thought I was protecting my family :-( Unfortunately my family didn't care about me anymore, so returned me to the rescue. I know that not many people inquire about me because of my breed, but I promise you...I am a young lady just yearning to love again. My friend who runs the rescue just loves me :-) She says I am such a sweetie and gives me kisses all the time! I love when she takes me for rides...I just jump right in the front seat of her truck and lie on the seat next to her as she drives. I never try to sit on her lap while she is driving because I know that isn't safe...I just lay down on my pretty pink blanket and enjoy the ride. When I am out on walks or hanging out on a leash, I love when people or kids pet me! I will hang out and soak up all the attention I can get. When I am home I do like to protect my people/person, so I need to politely ask that whomever adopts me has the type of home that doesn't get many visitors. I give you my word that I will never let anyone into our yard and will protect and keep you safe!!! Then, if you have people come over to visit, just put me in a crate or out in the back yard. I will keep myself entertained by throwing my toys around and catching them :-) I have already been spayed, microchipped, and am current on my shots. My adoption fee is $100.

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.

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Atwood, CA
      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Dutch Shepherd / Mixed (short coat). This gorgeous boy is Mo! He and is two identical sisters were adopted from us at 3-months old, in 2014. Now at a little over 2-years old, he ended up at the shelter with the other dog in the family. Luckily Mo was microchipped, so we went to pick both dogs up. Not sure of Mo's breed, we are guessing some type of Shepherd mix. He is about 70-pounds, but tall and lean. Mo is an angel in the car, good on the leash, and good with other dogs...large and small. Although not a dominant dog usually, he can be pushy, so a home with another dog is just fine (male or female.) He is currently living with three other big dogs. Mo LOVES people!!! He is an in-your-lap, kissy-face, lovey-dovey dog!!! He loves affection from anyone who will give it to him :-) Mo appears to be very prey driven, so no cats. With small children, he is great with them when everyone is sitting down or he is on the leash. When they get up and run, he sees them as prey, pushing them down and standing on them to show how proud he is. That being said, children in his home need to be older and knock-over proof :-) Mo is neutered, microchipped, and fully vaccinated. His adoption fee is $250.

      Breed: Bulldog
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Atwood, CA
      Posted Breed: English Bulldog / Bulldog (short coat). Stunning Derrick is a stunning Olde English Bulldog. He is NOT an English Bulldog. They look very similar, but are taller. You can look them up if you have any questions. This boy found himself at one of our local shelters. We found out about him because he entered the shelter with a dog that we adopted out two years ago. Knowing they were from the same family, we went back for Derrick when his time was up. Derrick is a solid boy that weighs about 70 pounds. He Is between 2-4 years old. Derrick is a love of a dog! He is a big teddy bear and happy all the time! His foster mom describes him as "loving and gentle." Derrick Lives with other dogs and does well. We do still feel that he may be happier as the only dog in the home, but it all depends on how the dogs do together :-) He just wants a family of his own to love! He is a wiggly, jiggly boy ready to squirm his way into your heart! Video here shows how happy he was to leave the shelter!!! He has been neutered, microchipped, and is fully vaccinated. His adoption fee is $300. If interested in this pet, please fill out an adoption questionnaire on our main website at www.love4canines.org FOSTER HOMES NEEDED! If interested, please email us ASAP!!!

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Atwood, CA
      Posted Breed: Belgian Shepherd Dog Sheepdog (medium coat). These two gorgeous puppies are Mike and Ike!!! They are VERY similar in looks, so if you want one, you'll need to meet them to decide which you want :-) Mike and Ike are pure bred Belgian Shepherd/Sheepdogs. The boys are about six to seven-months old. They still have their puppy hair on their heads :-) Right now the pups are learning everything you'd need to teach a tiny puppy. They are learning to walk on leashes, sit, use the doggie door, chew on toys, and all other basic puppy manners. Everything they see on their walks is new to them, so there is a lot of exploring going on right now. Mike and Ike sleep in crates and spend the rest of their days playing outside with the other foster dogs, along with hanging in the house with their foster mom. These dogs are stunning and still have some growing to do. They are herding dogs and very smart and loyal. Please do your research on the breed prior to applying for one of them, if you've not had one before. Both boys are neutered, microchipped, and have been fully vaccinated. Adoption fee for each is $400. If interested in this pet, please fill out an adoption questionnaire on our main website at www.love4canines.org FOSTER HOMES NEEDED!

      Location: Atwood, CA
      Posted Breed: Boxer / American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). WILL YOU BE THE ONE TO GIVE THEM THEIR HAPPY ENDING??? Foster or adopt Romeo and/or Juliet today!!! Poor babies...Initially, Romeo and Juliet were found wandering the streets of the Inland Empire. They were in such horrible shape, we were stunned!!! These two precious pups were then placed in what we thought would be a fabulous home, only to have them returned FOUR YEARS later because the family wants to do more out-or-the-country traveling!!! Once again, these two precious dogs need a new home. They can be placed together or separate. The good thing is that they are now both potty trained and have great house manners :-) Romeo is great with kids of all ages and other dogs. Juliet prefers the kids to be a little older and not in her face all the time. It takes her a few minutes to adjust to other dogs, but in the past, she had no problems with them. They both ride well in the car and walk nicely on the leash. They will give you as much love as you could ever want and all they ask for in return are the basics...food/water, shelter, and lots of love! Although they would love to be adopted together, they can also be split up. Being in the 6-8 year old range, they qualify for our Senior-4-Senior adoption program with a FREE adoption fee! If you are not a senior, you may still adopt one or both of the dogs. The adoption fee for each dog is $150, but if you take both...the adoption fee will be $150 for both of them!!! www.facebook.com/love4canines If interested in this pet, please fill out an adoption questionnaire on our main website at www.love4canines.org FOSTER HOMES NEEDED!

JULIET: Unfortunately for Juliet, a baby came into the picture. Things were going okay and she acted indifferent toward the baby, but when the baby started to crawl, Juliet decided enough was enough. Since we don't know her history before we found her, we don't know if she has had bad experiences with babies, or she just doesn't understand them. Bottom line is that Juliet needs a babyless home. She has NOT hurt the child, has just been growling and she did try to bite at him one day. Per her current owner..."I think she would do much better with older kids... ideally, she would love to be with someone who might be older and home more often than not. She is a great companion dog, very good with adults (never barks, jumps on people, etc), and very gentle with adults!!! She's extremely easy to take care of, is easy to walk, and is potty trained. She has never had an accident inside the house. In fact, she has woken us up a couple times in the middle of the night and waited til we let her out to go to the bathroom." We think she'd be great for a senior, small space living, someone who doesn't want the troubles that come with adopting a puppy, someone who likes to have a four-legged companion close by, etc. www.facebook.com/love4canines If interested in this pet, please fill out an adoption questionnaire on our main website at www.love4canines.org FOSTER HOMES NEEDED!

      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Whippet Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Atwood, CA
      Posted Breed: Whippet / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Meet Sandi, a sweet, goofy 1 year old beige/white male Whip-It mix that has a fun and loving personality! Sandi loves to go for walks, run and play, play, play! He walks very well on the leash with his “easy-walk” collar. He knows how to play tug, and plays fetch with just about everything! Sandy looks like a deer or gazelle and has a keen sense of smell and is becoming a good alarm system. When Sandy isn’t investigating or playing, he loves to be close and snuggle in close quarters. Sandi gets along very well with men, women, and other dogs. Because Sandi is young (about a year), he needs lots of training with name recall, sit, etc. As for his breed, you'll have to see him in person to get a true body stature. The shelter had him listed as a Greyhound, but he is much smaller...more like a Whippet. His breed mix though...is truly a guess!!! He has a natural desire to run, as many sight hounds do :-) He would do best in a home with another playful dog. He is also not suited for apartment or condo living. Sandi has lots of love to give and is looking for a forever home to match his loving and fun personality. He has been neutered, microchipped, dewormed, and is up to date with his vaccinations. His adoption fee is $250. If interested in this pet, please fill out an adoption questionnaire on our main website at www.love4canines.org FOSTER HOMES NEEDED! If interested, please email us ASAP!!!

      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Atwood, CA
      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Mixed (short coat). Chuck was left in a box in the desert (with his siblings), but luckily found the safely of a rescue. Since we don't have mom or dad, his breed is a complete mystery to us. In his litter, there was a blue merle pup, dark brown pups, cream colored pups, black tri, etc. His foster mom had him DNA tested and it came back mostly Shepherd. There was also some Jack Russell (if I'm correct on that second breed.) We're working on potty training and he's doing well. Chuck is living with other dogs and puppies, very happily :-) He is about 3-years old. He has been neutered, microchipped, and has up to date vaccinations. His adoption fee is $200.

      Sex: Male Male

      Location: Atwood, CA
      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Micky and Mallory are sweet and adorable 1 year old Pitbul mixes. Micky and Mallory were found running loose on a very busy street. They were scooped up to safety, but owners were never found. Mickey and Mallory love to play. They will wrestle for hours, take a nap and then start all over with their playtime. They love to chase the ball and if you're lucky they may bring it back once. These two are great with other dogs, are fine with *knock over proof* kids (kids old enough not to be easily knocked over) and they love all people they have met. These two are most likely litter mates, so they have been together their whole life. We would like to find a home that wants to sweet, bonded playful siblings. They do need some obedience work, but they are quite intelligent and will excel with some consistency and time. Adoption for the pair is $250.
