Aida
Photos
Aida is a sweet senior who was left at the shelter. The shelter is no place for any senior to be so we gladly took her into rescue to find her a loving home with lots of TLC. Aida's age is not known but we believe her to be between 10-12 years old. She has some arthritis so is a little slow to get up but she enjoys and does fine with short walks. Aida likes being with her loved ones and will gently nudge you to pet her. She is fine with other dogs but we don't know how she feels about cats. Aida will make someone a very nice companion.

Alyssa
Photos
Alyssa is an 8 year old female who came to us from a shelter.  Initially very frightened & timid she has blossomed into a sweet, gentle and loving golden girl.  She LOVES people.  At her foster she is a typical golden following you from room to room, sitting or lying by your side, a paw in your lap.  She walks nicely on leash and likes to meet people and receive their attention.  She loves her squeaky and stuffed toys.  She rides nicely in a car though still likes a boost to get in.  She responds to her name & a few commands; a treat in your hand and she is yours!

She is still learning about how safe she feels around some other dogs.  She is least sure about little dogs or dogs that invade her space - get in her face.  She is not an aggressive dog but may give warnings when she doesn’t feel safe.  Right now we keep some distance from passing dogs on walks to help with that.  With calm dogs who just let her be she has done well.  And she continues to surprise us.  She recently spent a week with a calm little dog and blended right in - walking in tandem & sleeping next to each other.    
 For now Alyssa needs to be placed in a ‘single dog home’ and with parents who will continue to work with her in feeling safe.  Alyssa is looking for a more quiet home with lots of love and someone around more often than not.

Cobi

Cobi is an approximately 9 year old, male Golden/lab mix. Cobi came to rescue when he ended up in a shelter. He has a quintessen-tial Golden/Labrador temperament and personality, he is super sweet and gentle. He has learned to use the doggie door in his foster home. He loves to go on walks, but short ones as he tires. If you are looking for a companion to hang out with and love, Cobi is the boy for you. Cobi gets along with dogs, but we don’t know about cats.

Darwin '16
Photos
Darwin is a 10-year- old Golden mix. Darwin came into rescue when his owner could no longer keep him. His foster says he's cute as a bug's ear, gentle, lovable, a Velcro dog, a cuddler, loves to lay on the couch when called up and sleeps on the bed. Listens well to commands, walks well on leash, comes when called most of the time.  He loves to stick his head out the window when riding in a vehicle. Darwin gets along with most dogs, but not all, for this reason he will be best suited in a single dog home, unless it's with a confirmed pacifist pooch, and probably no cats. His unique appearance with his Golden feathers and upright ears is an attention-getter and many people comment on how good looking he is. He goes to the office with his foster dad regularly and everyone who meets him thinks he's adorable. He's alert and makes a good watch dog, while not being over zealous or obnoxious. And of course loves his squeaky toys!

Gracie '13
Photos
Gracie is a 4 year old girl who is very sweet, very active, will need a home where she has direction and time for her.    She is a very smart, active, strong willed girl.   Gracie is not a dog for a home with children.  Children leave things around, do not put things away, and have lots of items where she can take them and run with them.    If she thinks you will chase her, she will grab anything and run with him.   It's a game to her.

Gracie's forever homes needs to a have a fence over 4 feet - she can jump over a low fence, gates that are secure - she will bolt if they are not closed properly.   Everything is a game to her.   She loves to ride in the car and loves going on vacation with the family.

Gracie is a cuddly girl and loves to sit on the couch with her owner.   If her new family says "no dogs on furniture" it will not work.   She love her people.   She is sweet, very cute, and VERY ACTIVE.

Jared
Photos
Jared, a 3 year old Golden mix, was found at a local shelter. This boy was quite popular with the shelter staff and when the day came for him to leave with one of our volunteers, most of the shelter staff came out to tell him goodbye and wish him well. This is not what usually happens when dogs leave the shelter so that told us what a nice boy Jared was. Jared is looking for a home with no other dogs because he is particular about which dogs he wants to be friends with. Jared would also like a home with no cats or small children under 7 years old because we don't know how he feels about either one of those. Jared is currently at our vet's office where he is winning the hearts of his caregivers.

Summer Girl

Summer is a 7 month old spayed Golden Retreiver/Great Pyrenees mix that came to us from the Downey Shelter. She is as cute as a button. She currently weighs 45-50 lbs but could get quite a bit bigger. She is housebroken, but still a puppy. She will chew whenever given a chance. Her foster says she has a cute little snore.

TC

TC is an adorable, smaller, Golden mix, who is 2-3 years old.  He is housebroken, has been crate trained, rides well in the car, and LOVES his walks.  He is healthy, happy, friendly and loves everyone he meets.  He enjoys walking with a buddy and while he may bark at another dog on his walk, once he meets them, he's their buddy also.  He would love to have a yard to play in and his favorite pastime is "bush diving".  When he goes out for his walks, he's constantly looking for critters, bugs, lizards, just everything in the bushes so he can try to get them.  What does he do with them, I don't know.  I don't think he has actually caught anything.

TC's perfect forever home would be with an active person, who loves to walk and hike, is a single dog in the home but goes hiking or walking with another friendly dog.  I would suggest no cats, due to his wanting to chase everything.  He is friendly with children but only older children in their teenage years as he has not been tested with young children.  How would he do during the day if the adopter was gone for long hours - well his foster home worked long hours and someone came in to the condo to take him out for exercise and a walk, so this could possibly work if an arrangement could be made.

TC is happy, healthy, playful, and looking for his forever home.

Vernon

Vernon is a beautiful 5 year old boy who is looking for a home of his own. Vernon does not like other dogs so his new home will be one that allows him to be the only resident dog. Vernon is a very loving dog who wants to be with his family as much as possible. He loves to swim and play ball and would love to find a home with a pool.  Vernon has good house manners and is now starting his search for the right family; one where he will be loved and cherished.
