Helping death-row, abused, and neglected dogs find forever homes. We do not discriminate by breed, age or special needs. As long as we’re capable of helping out, we will never say no!
UPDATE: Mimi has found her forever home!
“Hello! Things are going well! We are currently in Big Bear for the week. Lita has been doing great.
She is good on a leash and does well with walks, though she really likes sprinting around the house and in the yard. She is VERY fast! She also likes running errands with me, and does great in the car.
Behavior-wise, she is fine. She’s great with my daughter, gets along with the cats, and lets me know when there are strangers around. (last week the pest control guy came to spray outside and she was NOT happy about it, which is fine with me). She has started to show me her belly, so I think that’s a good sign that she is getting more comfortable.
Training-wise, she is making progress. She seemed to know “sit” already, but now knows “down”, “up”, and we are working on “stay” with verbal commands and hand/body gestures. She is extremely food motivated and has a crazy focus that is very hard to break.
I’ve included a few pics but they are from my phone so I hope they come out clear!”

Brief Bio: Meet Mimi! Mimi was rescued along with her mother and siblings when they were found in an industrial area. A worker was worried for they safety and asked around for help to ensure this little family wouldn’t end up in the kill shelter or faced getting hurt by those who doesn’t want them in the area. Luckily a rescuer was able to find space and take the family out of the industrial area and to the vet for a treatment and a clean bill of health. Mimi is the smallest size among the litter; she is a very cute & sweet girl, she gets along well with other dogs and cats. Mimi will be shy in the beginning, but food will shorten her distance with the new family. Mimi is looking for a home that that understands the responsibilities of owning and raising a puppy. Mimi is patiently waiting!
