Posted Breed: Border Terrier / Terrier (medium coat). Meet our love bug, AMY! Amy was found hobbling around in an industrial alley way. She had been hit by a car and no one stopped to help. She was found cowering in fear and crying in pain. Amy's x-rays showed that she had a fracture in her hind-leg. Despite the pain Amy was experiencing at the time of her rescue, she never stopped wagging her tail and giving kisses to her rescuers. Amy was treated for her injuries and she now has a clean bill of health! She is three years old and weighs 50.2 pounds. She is active, LOVES to go out on leash walks. She tends to pull forward while on her leash walks, but after a while she calms down. She will do anything to please people. And she gives great hugs and kisses. Amy thinks she is a lap dog! An ideal home for Amy would be an active family (without young kids) who can take her out on long, brisk walks. She needs a nurturing, responsible, and caring family. Amy is not crazy about every dog/cat she meets, but there have been a select few small dogs she absolutely adored to pieces. When she is outdoors, she is active. When she is indoors, she flops to her side for belly rubs and cuddle sessions. To adopt, please e-mail us: info@TFPF.org LIKE us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TFPF.org

More About Border Terrier Breed
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: Miniature Pinscher / Beagle / Mixed (short coat). Sweet Jojo is only two years of age with a really sad past. A Good Samaritan saw him getting kicked in the stomach and then tossed out on the side of the road by his abusers. The Fuzzy Pet Foundation (TFPF) then took him into our care to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home. Jojo has a clean bill of health, but he needs a very special home that can love him unconditionally, and understand he can be very fearful of strangers. Jojo needs a home with mature adults, and no children as he gets easily spooked and scared. He tends to gravitate towards one person, and will get very attached to one person. Jojo is fine with other dogs, and would do well with another fur-companion, but it's not a requirement. He's not much of a barker inside the home and loves to go on walks. Jojo thrives in a stable environment without too many strangers and noises. Jojo's spirit is slightly broken as a result of his past trauma and abuse. We aren't giving up on him. We are continuously socializing him and trying to get Jojo to be more comfortable around strangers. He has come such a long way since when he arrived to us a few months ago.

      Sex: Female Female

      Location: Santa Monica, CA
      Posted Breed: Beagle / Dachshund / Mixed (medium coat). Poor Vivienne was rescued from the dumpster as a stray dog. It appeared that she had been badly beaten and neglected. Even her eyes tell us a storybook full of sad tales... Many of her teeth were somehow knocked out and she was suffering from horrible skin infections that left her raw and sore. She was missing a lot of her fur and had bloody scratches on her abdomen area. Her glands appeared swollen and we even suspected she had cancer. The Fuzzy Pet Foundation discovered that Vivienne had a microchipped, but sadly, it was never registered. If only we could trace this microchip to Vivienne's previous "owner," we could involve law enforcement to further investigate this blatant case of animal abuse. Now, Vivienne's skin has cleared up and she has a clean bill of health. She underwent major dental work and can now eat and drink without any issues. She was spayed, vaccinated, and given a full blood panel. She has a healthy appetite! Because of the trauma Vivienne experienced prior to rescue, she really needs a special home. She can be fearful of strangers and lunge out of fear. But she will quickly get over this fear and become your best friend! Vivienne gets very attached to the people who care for her, and will follow them around everywhere! At the same time, she can be very independent and is never demanding. She will be a very loyal companion to that lucky adopter who invites her home. Vivienne is excellent on leash, loves to go on walks, jumps for joy at the beach, and enjoys laying on cozy, plush blankets. She's not crazy about being picked up, but we are working on this with Vivienne. An ideal home for Vivienne would consist of a home-body type guardian. Someone who enjoys spending time at home with his/her pet. Vivienne should not be around rambunctious children due to her past trauma. She thrives on daily walks with a guardian who is patient, compassionate, and willing and able to open his/her heart to a dog who really needs a special someone.

      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: Santa Monica, CA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Boxer / Mixed (medium coat). Meet Mr. Rocky! He is a 11-year old boy with a sad past. He was thrown out in an alley as a tiny, skinny puppy. Rocky followed a couple boys heading back home from the liquor store, and never left their home. Rocky was given water and food for the past 10 years, but never really got the love and care he needed until a Good Sam learned about his life story and wanted to help. Rocky was exposed to a lot of domestic violence issues in his original home. He was also taunted and teased by the neighborhood kids. He craved for some love and TLC every day, and waited for the right family to take him home. With the help of a Good Sam, Rocky has been given proper vet care, and was professionally diagnosed with spondylosis after a major car accident while living with his former "owners." The spondylosis is completely manageable with the occasional use of pain meds. Rocky gets massaged every day, and he runs, walks, and plays just fine. Rocky has a loving, gentle personality. He LOVES to cuddle and burrow underneath sheets and blankets to keep warm. He plays with toys, rolls on the grass, gallops around in the backyard. He listens wonderfully well, and even knows how to do tricks (shake, sit, down, and lay). Because of his past, Rocky needs a special, responsible home that could let him live out his golden years in peace and harmony. He is fearful of loud noises such as screaming people or fireworks. He is fine around certain dogs, but would do best as the only child in the house. He is scared of water. And he is scared of certain men with masks, hats, or hoodies on. To ADOPT, please e-mail us at info@TFPF.org.

      Location: Santa Monica, CA
      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog / Shepherd / Mixed (medium coat). COURTESY POSTING: To adopt, please contact Maria Carmen Flores: 310-627-6320 karmendmf@yahoo.com Captain (Cappi for short) has had a very sad and lonely life before coming to The Fuzzy Pet Foundation. A man acquired Captain to be used as a "guard dog" for his warehouse. For all eight years of his life, Captain received no love from the people around him. He was given food and water once every few days, and was not given any shelter to protect himself from the elements. Rain or shine, Captain was forced to live outside and lay on concrete floors with no bedding whatsoever. Every day, Captain would wait in front of the entrance gate, wagging his tail, and hoping for even a morsel of attention from the passers-by. One day, a Good Samaritan decided to talk the warehouse owner into surrendering Captain; she explained to him that under TFPF Captain would have a second chance at life and a much better future. At first, the owner resisted saying that he needed a "guard dog," but later, he agreed because Captain was "useless." Captain did not have a single mean bone in his body, and all he wanted to do was please people. Hence, the warehouse owner found no "use" for him. Captain is such a special soul. He is loving, gentle, and well-mannered. He is excellent on the leash. He LOVES to play fetch and has already learned the commands "sit," "shake," and "down." He appreciates the simplest pleasures in life, such as quietly sitting and laying beside his caregivers, or being petted on the head. Captain is fine around small to medium-sized dogs, and has not been around too many cats or large-breed dogs. Captain has a clean bill of health. To ADOPT, please us e-mail us here: info@TFPF.org
