Posted Breed: Golden Retriever / Chow Chow / Mixed. Sunshine is a really sweet girl. She loves everyone she meets and will instantly use her charm and good looks to get hugs and kisses and belly rubs from them. She is very patient and mellow, so has no problem to relax while being home while mom or dad is at work and will even entertain herself with her bones and toys, but she also loves to accompany people on car rides and field trips. She has a great smile and can easily cheer you up if you are having a bad day! Sunshine has completed her obedience training. All she needs now is a new family!

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: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Arrrrrgghhhh maties! Here be thar cutest pup around! Meet Pirate! Pirate came to us recently for boarding. His owner is unfortunately no longer able to keep him and is now looking to re-home Pirate. Although he is not one of our rescues, we will treat Pirate just the same and help him find a new home! Pirate was originally adopted from an online ad where someone was giving away a litter of puppies. For the past couple years, he has been living in a home with other dogs, including small dogs, and a baby. It seemed one of the smaller dogs was becoming a bit too competitive and wanting all the toys and bones for himself and so he began reacting to Pirate negatively. Pirate, though, didn't seem to react, but the family just didn't want to put their little dogs through any more stress. So now Pirate is awaiting adoption with a new family. We are still getting to know Pirate, but from what we can tell so far, he is very friendly and sweet. Being a young dog, he is energetic and will likely need some basic training and exercise, but he is a great dog with a great disposition. Submit an adoption application for Pirate today!

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed. Look at that mug! How can anyone resist that little underbite and sweet face? Mugsy is a sweet and shy boy ready for a family to love him for all his days! Gentle and calm, he would make a great dog for a quiet home. He currently resides with several doggy pals and seems to enjoy the company of other dogs. He can be a little unsure of people at first and will tend to hang in the background until he feels safe enough to approach. After he knows you, he jumps right into your arms soaking up all the love and pets he can get. Mugsy is friendly, lovable, and sweet. He will be a loving companion to a lucky family!

      Posted Breed: Hound / Mixed. Jasper is a sweet and bashful guy. He is good with kids who have nice calm manners and he is very playful with dogs once he knows and trusts them. Jasper has come a long way from his previous life of living with a hoarder. He was under socialized and a very frightened character. Now he loves long walks in the park, and snuggles at bed time. He is currently fostered in a multi dog household with many dogs of different sizes and personality types. Jasper is also good with children who are respectful of his bashful personality. Jasper would prefer to be placed in a home with an existing calm dog who could help him get more comfortable more quickly. If you are a special kind of dog owner with a soft touch, then Jasper will promise to adore you the rest of his days. If you are interested in adopting Jasper, please submit an adoption application today!

      Breed: Silky Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Newhall, CA
      Posted Breed: Silky Terrier / Mixed. Herbie has been through a lot in the past year from what we gather from his previous owners who dumped him back at the shelter. He was adopted as a puppy by what he thought would be his forever home, but year later, the family surrendered him staing in their notes about him that "he's not good with dogs, kids, people, he's good for nothing." We couldn't help but immediately question this particular note and asked if we could meet Herbie in person. We were told which kennel we could find him in and as we approached, we spotted Herbie in the very back of the kennel laying in a bed trembling. Our attempts to coax him out by calling him over and crouching down to his level failed. He was too scared to move. However, while we were awaiting someone to help us get him out of his kennel, we walked away to view other dogs and when we looked back toward Herbie's kennel, he had come out to see us all on his own! We knew right then he was just scared and overwhelmed and rightly so. Once we were off leash with Herbie in the meet'n'greet area, he came up to us and didn't want to leave our sides. He was shy and unsure, but we were in disbelief about the notes that had been given about his personality, were expecting Kujo! When we got back to the rescue, we introduced him to our two other rescues and they all get along great. Herbie is now wagging his tail and is excited to see us when we visit him. From what we can gather, his former family may have been too exuberant for him and pushed him to a point where he was fearful and didn't feel safe. A quiet home where he can take his time to get used to his new surroundings is ideal for him. We're happy that we get to help Herbie find his true forever family!

      Breed: Miniature Pinscher
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Newhall, CA
      Posted Breed: Miniature Pinscher (short coat). Nani means "beautiful" in Hawaiian and when we first laid eyes on her, that's exactly what we thought of her! Nani was one of the dogs who didn't find a home at the end of a big adoption event. When we came across her, she was laying down with her head propped up to the kennel wall fast asleep. She is a very sweet girl, but being what we believe to be a purebred miniature pinscher, she is also curious and independent which is typical of the breed. It is believed that when Nani was young, she may have had a premature botched spay, which has caused her some issues with her urinary tract. She will need to be on continued medication and may require vet visits periodically. Per Nani's current owners, "She is crate trained and stays indoors in her kennel overnight for sleeping and whenever the owners aren't home. Nani is quiet and easy to get along with, she takes her medicine gently and for the most part has a house cat personality. She is a calm and lovey girl who loves attention and snuggles, and gets along perfectly with everyone in the family, including our children." We have faith that someone special out there is willing to adopt a dog with a medical history and bring this lovable girl into their life. Nani has been through a lot of changes in her life and now faces finding yet another forever family who can commit to loving and caring for her for the rest of her life. Please give this girl a chance and adopt her today!

      Ferdinand

      rescue
      Breed: Doberman Pinscher
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Newhall, CA
      Posted Breed: Doberman Pinscher (short coat). ADOPTION SPECIAL: RECEIVE 3 FREE PRIVATE IN-HOME TRAINING SESSIONS ($275 VALUE) IN SANTA CLARITA VALLEY OR WAIVED ADOPTION FEE. LIMITED TIME ONLY! Looking for a head-turning-kind-of-handsome companion to share a lifetime of memories with? Then you have found just the dog in our resident stud-pup: Ferdinand. It's a typical public misconception that purebred dogs are almost impossible to find in the world of animal rescue, but it's actually far from the reality. Purebreds are a common sight at shelters, and are sometimes even more at risk for euthanasia than their "mutt" counterparts. Such seems to be the story of Ferdinand. We first met Ferdie at the end of a long row of kennels in one of the highest-kill shelters in the area. While the other dogs around him were going into overdrive with barks and snarls, Ferdinand caught the attention of our staff with the way he approached the kennel gate with grace, calm and composure. We took Ferdinand out into the small, cramped meet-and-greet area, and he instantly came up to our staff members and leaned into their legs, begging for ear scratches and wiggling his stumpy tail in excitement. We knew a smart dog like Ferdinand would find a fantastic forever home in a heartbeat! Since coming to the haven of New Leash On Life's thirteen-acre Ranch property, Ferdinand has blossomed into a smart, loyal, loving guy who wants nothing more than to stretch out in the sun or play in the dog park. He has earned the affectionate nickname of "Velcro" among the staff and volunteers -- he still wraps around our legs, much like a curious but shy toddler experiencing the world around him for the first time. We suspect Ferdi was primarily an outside dog in his previous home without much interaction. He would benefit from a home with experienced dog handlers or someone experienced with his breed. Ferdi is incredibly smart and wants nothing but to please his people and play all day. We have no doubt that with a little effort, Ferdinand will make the finest of dogs -- full of enough love and loyalty to last for years to come!

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Newhall, CA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Saved not a moment too soon - from a shelter where pit bulls barely last a week at times - the staff at New Leash knew they had stumbled on something amazing when this big, beautiful boy was brought out to be shown. Not much is known about Roscoe’s past except that he came to the shelter as a stray. Emaciated, but obviously still willing to give and receive love, Roscoe made a huge impression on everyone with how calm his demeanor was. In fact, towards the end of his tenure, shelter volunteers would actually put him in play groups with the other hyper pit bulls in an effort to calm them by watching Roscoe’s example. Roscoe is still exploring the world, and has clearly never known much beyond a backyard. The good news is that Roscoe is very adaptable, polite and listens well, so he has more than enough going for him to help him adjust to this whole new world he now finds himself in. He would probably be the star of any obedience class he was enrolled in, and likes other dogs - provided he is given a proper introduction to them. He takes treats like a true gentleman, and doesn’t mind wearing sweaters when it gets cold. Roscoe has displayed a wariness of some men and may require time to bond with any male he encounters. Interested adopters should expect to spend time with our trainer and Roscoe to work out times to help him bond with his new potential family.

      Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Newhall, CA
      Posted Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). We love our little man: Meatball! Rescued from a high-kill City shelter after being returned THREE times for having "too much energy," things looked pretty grim for this stumpy stud-muffin. His cropped ears and pearly white teeth didn't help matters, despite his ache to love, snuggle and kiss anyone who would give him the chance. Luckily, our Rescue Team got to Meatball just in time -- we knew our Trainers and Volunteers would have no problem showing Meatball the correct way to a forever home, and were happy to rescue him from an undeserved fate to rehabilitate a dog who clearly had much to offer but had never had any semblance of discipline in his life. After a little TLC, Meatball couldn't wait to get started with his next activity: meeting everyone at the Ranch, and making new friends! We proudly parade this adorable kiss-machine around to anyone who will take notice... he is an amazing dog, and he promises to do his very best to keep you happy and smiling for the rest of your days if you give him the opportunity! Due to his strength and energy levels, it is recommended that Meatball be in a home with older children who he can't accidentally knock over while playing. He seems to get along with most other dogs, but definitely thrives when the other dog is calm and has obedience manners. Cats and small critter households probably won't work for this curious guy. Meatball will definitely need a daily outlet for his energy - such as walks or dog park adventures, maybe even frolicking on the shallow step of a pool! He does well on a leash and will only continue to improve, provided he isn't given the opportunity to pull with a harness or flat collar while out exploring. Meatball is a genuinely happy dude, full of pep and personality. He enjoys long walks, lazy days at the park, endless amounts of tug-of-war, and cuddles after it's all said and done! He is always down to play and explore, so if you have an active life and are looking for a handsome guy to take along for the ride, Meatball is your man!
