Lucky; 2 yrs old; Male; Mini Aussie; 25 lbs

Name: Lucky
Age: 2 yrs old
Gender: Male
Breed: Mini Aussie
Weight: 25 lbs

Lucky is a shy fearful boy looking for a home that has a friendly, well balanced and playful mini Aussie about his size. He was originally from a commercial breeder. While used to being around other minis his size, he is not used to other breeds, people and normal everyday occurrences. He spooks easily and will not come when called if he is scared. Routine is everything for this guy! He is comfortable when he knows what to expect and where to go. Because of his fears, he is not recommended for condos/apts, dog parks, or kids. Lucky needs a home with a secure fenced yard and a friendly mini to play with and follow around. Lucky will require a few visits before final adoption so potential adopters would need to reside close to the San Diego area.

Marshall; 3 years old; 58lbs; Australian Shepherd

Name: Marshall
Age: 3 years old
Weight: 58lbs
Breed: Australian Shepherd
Gender: Male

Marshall is a sweet boy looking for an Aussie savvy home where he can get lots of time and attention. He is not used to be alone for long periods of time so a regular schedule where someone is around most of the time is required.  He is friendly with people; can be timid at first around men. Marshall LOVES to play with toys/ball and run around in his yard. He is good with other Aussies his size. He can be overwhelmed if other dogs are too excitable or dominant. He does best with other playful but calm dogs (around his size) that like to chase and bounce around. Marshall needs a home with a securely fenced yard. He can be a door/gate dasher and used to dig out of his previous yard. He cannot be left alone outside or with access to doggie door unsupervised. Marshall should not live with young children, cats or small dogs. He is a very special dog who’s foster family loves him very much.  We are looking for a family that will treasure him, keep him safe and give him a very happy future. If you are interested in adopting Marshall, please fill out our adoption application

Per owner: Disco is a very large mix breed( 95 lbs.) He looks like a cattle dog and some type of hound. Disco loves to fetch and play with his balls and toys. He is extremely protective of our home and our new 1 yr old daughter. He tends to nip children when he wants to be left alone and knocks them down unintentionally. He has never broke anyone’s skin, but around children you have to be cautious. If you throw a ball, he will run right through you to get it. He is house broken, does well on leash, and doesn’t chew. Disco lives inside and uses a doggie door. Disco loves to run and hike with the family. We are super sad to see him go but think he will be better off with someone without small children. He has a strong herding instinct. When there is a lot of commotion with smaller children, he tries to manage the situation by pinching whoever he thinks is being too rowdy with his front teeth.

We are hoping to find a home with some space and a new owner that can spend time with him. He is not alone much but does well at home for 8 hrs. Please contact Jay at

Australian Cattle Dog Mix
14 years old
Female, spayed

Sophie is approximately 14 years old, female, spayed. She was a family surrender to a shelter in Los Angeles and was housed there for six months prior to adoption by my spouse’s mother. Due to my spouse’s mother’s death, we are now fostering her in search of a new home for her. She is not compatible with cats (we have two). She comes on strong initially with other dogs, but mellows out after time and a few introductions. She loves to go on walks and heals well, plays ball and continues to have moderate to high energy. She is an excellent companion, although she loves to sleep on the couch and cuddles on pillows.

If you are interested in this senior gal, please fill out the adopt app: and it’ll be forward it on to her caregivers (Torrance/South Bay area)
