Posted Breed: Boxer / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Hi! My name is Rex, aka Rexxie. I am a super sweet tail wagging boxer/pit mix. I am about 5 years old and I weigh 59 pounds. I really love my humans and I'm good with kids and cats too. I'm learning how to be calm around other dogs, but with a little bit of work, I can remember that other dogs are pretty awesome too. I am the only dog in my foster family right now, and with proper introduction can live with other dogs just fine. I'm looking for a kind owner to love on and give lots of kisses to. Could that be you? If you are interested in adopting, please go to our website and complete the adoption application: http://www.icaredogrescue.org/ready-to-adopt/ Adoption fee includes : Spay/neuter * shots up to date * micro-chip * fecal and vet check

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: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). My name is MISTER! I am an 8 year old, 12 pound chihuahua mix! While I am happy to be part of a one dog family, I get along well with my foster siblings. I have discovered I like the touch of a human although I lived on my own for quite some time. I am pretty independent unless you want to scratch me where I like it or you have a little treat in your hand or want to take me for a walk. Did I mention I like to be scratched? (I never knew this until recently) I have spent a lot of time on my own in inhospitable surroundings so I am a little rough around the edges sometimes. A good Samaritan found me tied to a road sign in Mt Baldy and it was the beginning of the good life for me!) . While I may be approaching middle age (I am 8 years old as per my vet). I have plenty of energy and a literal spring in my step to be a member of a forever family. My foster parents think I am a very clever and quick to learn and I am their favorite escape artist. I am house broken most of the time but need occasional reminders about the difference between indoors and outdoors because I have spent so much time living on my own. I have learned that humans can be sweet and kindness is wonderful! I am ready to be adopted by the right family, couple or person but please remember, I like my coffee strong, light and with a touch of chocolate, as I must confess I am a coffee thief (that is what my foster mom calls me when I take a sip or 2 or 3 of her coffee).

      Posted Breed: American Bulldog / Mixed (short coat). Mr. Smiley is my nickname, looking happy is my game! I am a 7 year old grey/white American bulldog mix, weighing 87 lbs. Everyone who meets me compliments me on my big, sunshiny smile and wants to hug my broad, muscly neck. I am a handsome guy who radiates with happiness when you pay attention to me. I love being with my people and meeting new people. I may look tough but I'm really a softy and love to have my behind scratched and to flip on my back and have my belly tickled. I would love a real swimming pool as I love to jump in my foster's kiddie pool and dunk my head and bite at the water. I have a silly side and will run in donuts, chase toys and balls. I am always up for an adventure and jump in the car, ride shotgun or sit quietly in back, beaming my cheeky grin. I love getting chicken nuggets from "Chik-fi-let"! I am an "alert woofer" but not a big barker. I prefer the company of calmer, medium and small sized dogs if introduced properly. I am good on a leash and listen to my handler, even when another dog acts aggressive towards me. I like cats a little TOO much but I've learned they're off the menu and listen to my foster even when they're pretty close. I really want to please. I love sleeping in a crate on a soft bed and i am housebroken. I prefer to be inside with my people. My foster mom says I am very powerful so although I'm very gentle and calm most of the time, I need a physically strong person and probably older children. I know "Sit, Wait, leave it, car, come, crate, outside," sit nicely for treats and my meals. If you are looking for an all around awesome buddy that makes you smile, then BRAVEHEART is your dog! Watch him with his baby pool! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7z7Qzz84DvU More of Braveheart: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1g0TtY5-oJY If you are interested in adopting, please go to our website and complete the adoption application: http://www.icaredogrescue.org/ready-to-adopt/

      Posted Breed: Miniature Pinscher / Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Meet TUBBY! *courtesy post-contact Clint at 626-627-3300 for adoption info! Tubby is a very friendly, obedient dog, unfortunately he has limited feeling in his hind legs due to a fall that occurred about a year ago. I took him to an emergency animal hospital who referred me to the Veterinary Neurology CenterOne in Tustin, Orange County, CA, (949) 784-8703, in case someone would like to see his MRIs. Diagnosis was “Tubby had multi-level intervertebral disc herniations and an abnormal region of hyperintensity (brightness) in the spinal cord.” I could only assume that he preferred to survive even with diminished quality of life. I’ve been caring for him since that time but due to recent circumstances I can no longer tend to him. I believe that with the proper attention, it’s possible for him to use his hind legs again. The neurologist confirmed that he can feel his hind paws but I think the lack of use has resulted in lack of confidence and muscle in his hind legs. I know that when I’ve had time to work with him, he would show improvement and try to hobble on all four legs, especially when he goes to a park. I haven’t lost hope in his ability to recover. He has a wheelchair. He is a miniature pincher mix, about 7 years old, around 15 pounds. He is neutered and up to date on shots. Tubby also likes to "talk" to people and will respond with cute pup noises when spoken to. While initially he barks at strangers, he is a very friendly dog and loves showing his love to people by licking them. Tubby is very obedient and has never bitten anyone, has walked off-leash and always returns when called, and gets along well with anyone. While it is heartbreaking to say goodbye to such a loving member of the family, I no longer have the means to care for him. Tubby needs someone who can give him a lot of attention, encouragement to use of his hind legs, and make sure that he doesn't hurt himself by dragging his legs on hard surfaces. Despite his accident, Tubby is still a happy and excited dog, especially when given love from people. While primarily an outdoor dog, Tubby has spent time indoors. He can't always control going to the bathroom due to his legs, but he doesn't chew things or go into the trash can. Best thing for him would be grassy backyard and a pillow. He also has a sister, Ruby, who my acquaintance is able to keep. However, whoever adopts Tubby is welcome to Ruby as well in case the new owner prefers to keep them together. She is a golden lab mix, about 8 years old, about 50 pounds, so they’ve been together pretty much their whole lives. Typical lab family dog traits, friendly, loves kids, never bitten anyone.

Abigail (Abby) is a 6 yr. old Pitbull mix (blue brindle color) weighing in at 40ish lbs. She is spayed, up to date on shots and micro chipped. Abby is housebroken, crate and leash trained. Abigail knows all of her basic commands. She does get excited while on walks and likes to test her owner, a quick reminder or muzzle keeps her walking great. She is great with kids of all ages (including babies) and all new people. Abigail is friendly with meeting strangers and would do best in a home where she is the only dog. Abigail LOVES playing with her tennis ball, car rides, long walks and runs. She is extremely energetic, but can be lazy at times too. She enjoys cuddling with her owner and sleeping in her crate at bedtime. Belly rubs are her favorite! Abigail is a very well behaved dog when she is exercised both physically and mentally. When she is not, she can cry, mildly bark unnecessarily and get into trouble around the house. She is located in Orange and is available for visits for serious inquiries. Abigail would do best with an energetic owner that she can stay active with during the day, and be lazy/cuddle at night. She is house trained and can keep herself company while the owner is at work, but looks forward to getting love and exercise when the owner comes home. To meet Abby, contact Kaytee Younker at 714-906-2984 or via email at kaytee.younker@gmail.com

She enjoys walks & is always happy to get some pets from anyone who asks or jumping in the truck to go somewhere. She LOVES playing in snow and catching snowballs. She's a breeze to bathe because she loves the water. We've had her for 5 years but as she's aging she finds my young kids trying and doesn't like sharing attention with other animals. She's been a wonderful dog for us & it breaks my heart to have to rehome her but I don't feel it's fair to her to be around kids when she doesn't want to be.

Lola is a five year old, 14 pound Chihuahua/Jack Russel mix. (((singing))) Her name is Lola, she was a rescue, but that was several years ago before she found a loving home…. (my apologies to Barry Manilow) Lola came to live with me when she was 3 years old. At that time she was pretty tenuous and nervous. It really took about a year for her to figure out how to be secure enough to act like a dog. Her best fur buddy (Jackson) came to live with me at the end of that first year and taught her how to play tug-of-war and fetch. Lola likes to cuddle but is not fond of sitting on your lap. Her favorite is to curl up right beside you, soaking up the warmth of your leg and getting scratched between the ears. Lola loves to walk and is very good at maintaining the heel position on the left side. She is good with other dogs and with children (although when she’s had enough kidlet attention she will go upstairs and fall asleep in her kennel). For some reason Lola thinks that tissue (toilet or facial) is a good snack but she also enjoys sugar snap peas and carrots. Lola is micro-chipped. ​Please contact Stephen Beal via email at swb@bealfamily.net to meet LOLA!
