The Tale of Todd

With his signature bat ears and love of the great outdoors, Todd is easily one of our favorite rescues. At only nine months old, Todd was transferred from a California shelter to the Seattle Humane Society, a no-kill shelter in Washington, where he met the love of his life, June. Since his adoption, this dream team loves taking early morning hikes through the woods to their favorite mountain views and snuggling up on the couch to catch up on their favorite tv shows. We love successful adoption tales and hope June and Todd‘s story will inspire you to #consideradoptionfirst. What is […]

Meet Luke

This sweet boy is the mellow one in a crowd and is content just hanging out. At approximately 60lbs, Luke would make a great companion for someone looking for a medium energy dog to take adventuring and who also enjoys chilling out at home. Founded in 1863, the County of Los Angeles Department of Animal Care and Control now has a total of seven animal care centers that serve the Los Angeles county area. Most of […]

Over The Weekend

This weekend was packed with exciting training opportunities both here in town and down in the Los Angeles area. We spent Saturday afternoon close to home training Nihmh and Khoena at our local PetSmart and we are so proud of how far our girls have come in their training. As common with most young dogs, there are still challenges we need to continue to tackle, such as exposure to large crowds and loud noises. Since we live in a rural area that does not quite have the hustle and bustle of city life, we planned a Sunday trip down to […]
