A Christmas Wish


Walker; 3 years old; Male; Australian Shepherd; 52lbs

Name: Walker
Age: 3 years old
Gender: Male
Breed: Australian Shepherd
Weight: 52 lbs

Walker is a snuggly guy once he gets to know you. He will need an experienced Aussie savvy home. Walker has been friendly with his foster family and volunteers but often needs to be introduced to new people carefully. He is not comfortable when people stare at him and he definitely does not want to own people’s insecurities. He will bark or growl to show he is not comfortable. Walker is also noise sensitive to loud noise like fireworks, gun shots and thunder. He has been great with other dogs and is very friendly. Walker will need a family with no children and a home with a secure fenced yard. Another friendly dog would be ideal but not required. He is unknown with cats.

If you are interested in adopting Walker, please fill out our adoption application Answer every question even if it doesn’t apply to you. Otherwise your app will not submit. You will receive an immediate confirmation once it has been submitted. Please allow up to 48 hours for us email you personally. If you do not receive confirmation within 48 hours, email us at


Lucky; Male; 1 1/2 year old; Mini Aussie; Approx 25lbs

Not Yet Available for Adoption—please check back in December

1 1/2 year old
Mini Aussie
Approx 25lbs

Lucky is very fearful and is not yet comfortable with human touch. He is not yet available for adoption. Please check back mid November for more info.


Jasmine; Female; 6 years old; Mini Aussie; Approx 32lbs

Name: Jasmine
Gender: Female
Age: 6 years old
Breed: Mini Aussie
Weight: 32lbs

Jasmine is a lovely princess! She is timid / reserved at first. She loves being with her person and also going on sniffing adventures. Jasmine was rescued from a commercial breeder where she was most likely the matriarch of her group. She is definitely a strong female in comparison to the other dogs she came in with. While she has not done anything to the other dogs at her foster home and she has not been reactive, we would like to place her as an only dog so she has time and space to come out of her shell without worrying about what other dogs are doing. Jasmine will need a quiet lifestyle that includes being with person, going on walks and lounging in her safe and private yard. She is not a dog park type of dog. Note: Jasmine’s coat is expected to grow back beautiful and silky. Loss of coat is attributed to previous stress and over breeding at the puppy mill where she was rescued from.

If you would like to adopt Jasmine and give her a loving home, please fill out our adoption application Answer every question even if with “n/a” or it will not submit. We will respond to your application within 48 hours. If you do not hear from us, email us at


Jewell; 8 years old; Female; Mix, short wavy hair; 45 lbs

Jewell is truly a jewel. She is a mix of several breeds making her one of a kind ❤️ Jewell’s favorite volunteer sponsored her dna test and is preparing Jewell for a furever home.

Name: Jewell
Age: 8 years old
Gender: Female
Breed: Mix, short wavy hair
Weight: 45 lbs

Jewell was at a local shelter where she was so shut down, staff members had to carry her when moving her. She was very sick with pyometra, scabies, skin infection and more. They took excellent care of her and we rescued her as soon as we had an open spot. Jewell has come a long way! She is now healthy, has a gorgeous coat and sweet adoring eyes. She is still very shy with new people but usually will take food. Jewell has learned to walk on a leash but may need coaxing in new situations. Jewell has been great with her foster dog siblings and is very easy to live with. She is not good with cats! Becasue she is so shy, we ask for a home with at least a small yard and with no children since they will overwhelm her.

If you would like to adopt Jewell and give a loving home, please fill out our adoption application Answer every question even if with “n/a” or it will not submit. We will respond to your application within 48 hours. If you do not hear from us, email us at

Mari is a 7 yr old spayed 55 pound female black tri Aussie that is in need of a home withOUT small/young children. Per the owner, she is excellent with older kids, but is unable to get along with their 1 1/2 year old son. She has shown aggression towards him, and has even snapped at him but no damage done. They are in a small house and it is impossible to keep them separated at all times. Mari may show aggression to other dogs while on the leash if she is keyed in to them. She gets along ok with other dogs when off leash at the dog park, but remains anxious and disinterested in play. She is very playful with their other Aussie, but may also show aggression towards her at times, for example, if they are on leash and pass another dog she may snap at her. She is not a truly aggressive dog, but requires a lot of attention and distraction while on walks. Mari is a wonderful loving companion. She is smart and driven to please, enjoys swimming at the beach, fetch, frisbee, catching balls in her mouth, is housebroken and well behaved in the house, fair with cats.

If you are interested in Mari, please email her owners at: (Van Nuys area)

“ Hi my name is Austin and I am an 11 year old neutered red tri male mini Aussie. I weigh about 20 pounds. I am very loving and I love attention but only from adults. I am not good with kids at all. I am potty trained with a doggy door but sometimes I have some accidents in the house. I love going on walks and I am a great walker, but I have some issues with barking when I see other people with dogs or on bikes/skateboards etc.. I would be a great dog for a family that loves snuggles on the couch and with absolutely no children.”
