Dogs In the Metropolitan Los Angeles Area

Rescue Schnauzer Toby

Toby is a super friendly salt & pepper Miniature Schnauzer, who we rescued from the Los Angeles North Central shelter. The shelter had estimated his age at 10, primarily because his teeth were so bad.

We had a dental done. Poor Toby lost most of his teeth, but he is feeling a lot better now, and eating with a lot more gusto than before. He seems a lot younger than 10. We and the vet estimate his age at about 7.

When Toby first saw the back yard at his foster home, he started running around like crazy. He seemed to be thinking: “My gosh, I've gone from the shelter to Club Med!”

Toby loves to play, play, play. He loves his foster mom and he loves to play with the other dogs at his foster home. He will be a great companion to whoever adopts him. Toby always seems to have a smile on his face.

Toby appears to be in good health. He is neutered, microchipped and current on vaccinations. Toby has natural ears and a natural tail.

Toby is being fostered in Pasadena. Please submit a completed Adoption Application form if you'd like to adopt Toby. Contact John Hoffman at cmsr@johnehoffman.us for more information about Toby.

Twiggy is a 1– 1/2 year old Papillon mix. She weighs 7 lbs.

Twiggy is a little firecracker—a huge personality in a tiny body. Twiggy is energetic and funny. She will chase her tail at full speed, and will mimic a police siren when she hears it. She is a complete entertainment package! But Twiggy is also crate trained. She will nap and sleep happily in her crate.

Twiggy appears to be in good health. She is spayed, microchipped and current on vaccinations.

Twiggy is being fostered in Los Angeles. Please contact Virginie Haudrechy at virginiehaudrechy@yahoo.com or 310 200-4344 for more information about Twiggy.

Bella is a super friendly 1 year old salt & pepper Miniature Schnauzer with natural ears and a natural tail. She loves people, kids, and other dogs.

Bella is an energetic little girl. Unfortunately, she will escape through any open door. She needs a secure home so she is safe until her adopter can train her not to run out open doors.

Bella appears to be in good health. She is up to date on vaccinations and will be spayed before placement.

Bella is being fostered in San Diego. Please contact Lita Giminez at 619 661-6444 for more information about Bella.

Frankie is friendly with people and gets along well with other dogs. However, he would be best in an adult home since he has not been around children.

Rescue Dog Smokey (may bite)

Smokey is a black and gray terrier mix, who is about 2 years old. We rescued Smokey from the San Bernardino City shelter. He weighs about 13 lbs.

Smokey is a bit on the timid side, but is very affectionate once he gets to know you. He gets along with other dogs. We have not had him around cats or young children yet.

We think Smokey would likely be best in an adults-only home or one with teenagers.

Smokey appears to be in good health. He is neutered, microchipped and current on his DA2P vaccination. He will be up to date on his rabies vaccination before placement.

Smokey is being fostered in Palmdale. Please submit a completed Adoption Application form if you'd like to adopt Smokey. Contact John Hoffman at cmsr@johnehoffman.us for more information about Smokey.
