Dogs Available for Adoption

Fozzi & PK

Status: Available for Adoption

Hi I’m PK. I’m the extremely handsome 9 year old Dalmatian in the picture. The good-looking dude next to me is my “brother from another mother” and my best friend, Fozzi. He’s a Ridgeback-mix and 10 years old. We love walks and we get along with small dogs, and have been around other large dogs. We are both up to date on all our vaccinations and we’re in great shape. We’re a dynamic duo!
We do have a problem though and we hope you can help us solve it. Our hooman sadly passed away from cancer and now we urgently need to find a new home because we can’t stay in our temporary housing for much longer. Losing our hooman was heartbreaking but we are coping okay because we have each other. We can’t be separated now. We’ve been through too much! We really are besties and forcing us apart will crush us. We just want to spend our golden years together in a home full of love and fun. I know we sound desperate, because we are!! Please can you help us find a home, either with a foster or an adopter?. If so, please visit and fill out a foster/adoption application and submit it.


Status: URGENT NEED OF FOSTER OR ADOPTER – Available for Adoption 

Hi everyone! I’m India. I’m an Anatolian Shepherd-mix and weigh just 60ibs (that’s the mix in me). I would describe myself as a bit shy but sweet natured. Some people tell me I’m gorgeous and a good girl, which I like to hear because I have some trust issues and I need to know I am safe and loved. I left the shelter recently as I wasn’t happy there; I felt very nervous. Now I’m out, I’m gaining back all my confidence and I just need a forever home where I can be part of a family.  If you’d like to meet me or find out more about me, please contact the lovely people at Save the Dals. They’ll be able to tell you if I like cats, dogs, children and other fun facts that they’re currently discovering about me.

**Can be transported to other places here in California**

Hi, I’m Casper. I’m 2 to 3 y-o. Neutered, current on all my vaccinations. I am heartworm positive but I’m taking doxycycline (asymptomatic) so it’s all good.

In my current home (a sanctuary) I was a bit timid and scared at first, but I’ve gained a lot of confidence and have made lots of friends. It’s amazing how hooman love and kindness can make a BIG difference to my trust. My foster mom says ‘He is a beautiful, calm, boy, and acts like he’s been in a home before and lived inside.  He is house-trained, and used the dog door from day one.” I’d love to meet anyone who would like to take care of me and welcome me in to their family.

Hi! I’m Fergie! I think I’m between 1-2 years old.. It’s difficult to know for sure as nobody knows when I was born. Here’s a thought –  If you adopt me then you can make up a birth date to celebrate.  I’m spayed and 100% vaccinated! I’m also house trained.  In my current sanctuary I get along with all my roommates and I don’t  tear up blankets or furniture, I never bark. I’m a really good girl, just very docile and I can be timid with new dogs but I easily bond.  I’m looking for a forever home with kind humans who can help me socialize and take care of me. 


Status: Available for Adoption – URGENT NEED

Hi, I’m Polar (like the bear…): I’m 2 years old, neutered and up to date with all my vaccinations. I’m house-trained, well behaved, had professional training, polite, and my foster family say I’m incredibly intelligent. That means I’m smart, polite, and cute! So I don’t understand why I was just dumped at a shelter and left there. However, I need to move on now and find a loving furever home.  I know I’m good with most other dogs, but I’m not sure about cats and children because I don’t think I’ve met any, so I’d have to be tested for that. If you’d like to find out more about me and consider giving me a permanent home, then contact the kind people at Save the Dals.

Adoptions Pending


Status: Adoption Pending

Angel is about one year old and is sweet, timid, and gets along very well with other dogs and cats. She was rescued from a backyard breeder, where she already had a litter of puppies. Because of that, she’s a little cautious about being inside the house and may not have lived inside much before now.  She was also not treated well, so she is afraid of certain things.

Emily Rose

Status: Adoption Pending

Hi! I’m Emily Rose! I’m a wonderful little 20 month-old girl.  I was dumped for chasing cats and chickens. I swear it’s not my fault! I can’t help myself, they’re just so darn cute and fun to chase!  I do have some separation anxiety, so I cry at night, though I am getting a little better now that I’m seeing a routine and consistency.  I was with the same family since I was a little pup.  I keep to myself mostly but I respects other dogs. I am house trained, and I do well in a car.  I’m also well-mannered in public.

Heartworm negative, current on vaccinations, spayed, and microchipped.

Adopted Dogs


Status: ✔ Adopted

Hi I’m Frankie. I’m a 3Ib Australian Cattle dog. My owner relinquished me and it made me sad; but humans say that thing happen for a reason, perhaps that’s true. After all somebody lovely has come along and my adoption is pending. I will woof if anything changes.

Hi, my name is CC short for Cookies n Cream. I am 3 years old. I have two heart spotted eyes, and I’m deaf. Which make me a bit unique. I’m a really loyal companion but I need to be the only dog and I don’t really want to hang out with children under 8. Oh, and I don’t care for cats, birds or chickens. I’m fine with dogs at doggie day care or at the dog park, but when I’m at home I want to be the only fur baby. I am spayed, microchipped and vaccinated. I am house trained, and my manners are impeccable. Her ideal home would be as an only dog, and no young children under 8 years of age. She has been around children that age and above. No cats, chickens, birds or other small animals. CC has a high prey instinct. FUN FACT: like to run and play with other dogs and gets the zoomies.

Hi! I’m Milo! I’m 11 months old. The shelter says I’m a COVID puppy – meaning I was who purchased without forethought of what would happen when the pandemic was waning, and now my hoomans have returned to work and don’t have the time to look after me.

I am housebroken, neutered, microchipped and up to date on vaccinations. I and get along with other dogs. I don’t know if I like cats as I’ve never met any. Because I am young, big and I love zoomies, It’s better if I’m not in a home with young children who could easily be knocked over or jumped on.


Status: ✔ Adopted

Hi everyone, my name is Panda and I’m a one-year-old Terrier and I’m neutered! Now, I love people and larger dogs, but I have a problem with cats… I really don’t like them. I’m not sure if I like small dogs, but it’s probably smart if my forever home doesn’t have small dogs, cats, rabbits etc living there. So if you don’t have small animals, you love my ears and you promise to love and care for me…then I’d like to meet you.

Hi, my name is MAC and I’m 5 1/2 years old. My dad had to move in to assisted living and I couldn’t go with him. We’re both heartbroken. I’m a gentle boy who is shy at first. I just want to be part of a family. I get along with other dogs and children. I’m not sure about cats as I haven’t met any.


Status: ✔ Adopted

Hi, my name is Dakota and I just moved to San Diego so my foster mom could care for me.

I am 9 years old and a strong, sturdy girl weighing in at 70Ibs. I wear my weight very well because I’m a Huskey-Boxer mix. People tell me I’m remarkably sweet and very gentle, and I am! I’m also house trained so I know how to behave. I love being around people, I find car rides thrilling, I never say no to a treat and I love naps, preferably with people. Even though I’m a mature dog I like to play. I believe you’re never too old to play. I’m not sure yet how I feel about children and cats because I haven’t spent any time with them, but I do like other dogs, as long as they respect my space.

I’m looking for someone kind to care for me and welcome me in to their family. Are you the hooman for me?


Status: ✔ Adopted (Sanctuary)

Hi! My name is Duke and I’m living in a safe sanctuary. I’m about 8 years old and 70 lbs. I’m neutered. I was found as an emaciated stray puppy and I’ve lived the last several years in a backyard, sleeping in a garage at night, and now I really want to find a home where I can sleep inside and be part of my hooman family. Because of my background, I lack a bit of etiquette and social grace but, I have been trained, I do really well on walks and with all the basic commands. Sleeping in a crate inside at night makes me feel really safe, but when I come out I love belly rubs.

I really need a kind human who has lots of experience of helping dogs like me and has the time and attention necessary to work with me.

I’m not good with other dogs or children, even older ones. I know I’m not shining in a positive light, but I believe it is important to be honest. If it’s just us, I’ll be the best companion ever.

I appreciate you might not want to adopt me before getting to know me, so I’m happy to stay with you as a foster and then if we like each other, I’ll stay with you forever.


Status: ✔ Adopted

Cleo is a surrender from her owners who could no longer take care of her. She is a pure bread, 2.5 years old. Cleo is deaf.

She was an only dog in her prior home; that coupled with her deafness resulted in extreme separation anxiety. Now in foster care, with a spotted brother and sister, she has blossomed.

Due to her deafness, and the history her surrendering family provided us, Cleo will need to be adopted into a home where there are other canine companions and a human home all the time. If left alone, she has severe separation anxiety and barks non-stop.

Cleo will also need a home who is patient and willing to train her as her prior owners did not put in any time for basic training due to her deafness; this means her adoptive family will need to learn some basic sign language to assist in her training. She needs a yard for paying and prefers to be inside with family.

She is NOT cat friendly with a high prey drive.

Persia gets along with all the dogs, ranging in size from 45-75 lbs, ages 2-14, both female & male. She is learning to play with the other dogs and has learned a few basic commands. She loves roaming around the backyard, and can easily entertain herself. She’s easy to train as she only wants to please you.

HELLO! I’m Wesley and I live in Southern California – San Diego. I am 2 years old and I’m looking for a loving home. People say I’m a sweet, sensitive and loving boy. My foster family wrote a report all about me… here goes:

“Wesley will rock your world! He is 2 years old, 50 lbs of energy with a dash of charm. His markings are striking, complete with a ½ black and ½ white tail. He loves all people and quickly bonds to humans. He is currently fostered with Pongo in San Diego, and did well meeting the other medium to large size dogs that permanently reside in his foster home.

He loves to give his humans hugs and kisses and holds on tightly. He is very playful and needs an active single or couple to take him on walks, runs and playtime. Wesley is just a happy-go-lucky dog who follows the pack. So far he has been doing very well in his foster home. He will need positive reinforcement training once he settles in his new forever home. He wants every bit of love and attention that you have to give. Overall, he is the sweetest, most loyal dog you could ask for. He likes to have skin to skin contact when settling in for the night and everyone is asleep. He is a snuggle bunny and very affectionate.

He has not been introduced to young children, cats or small dogs yet. Showed curiosity when he saw some feral cats but did not react as strongly as his foster housemate Pongo.”

Loves treats, loves to play.
Give him a pillow to sleep with, seems to settle him down quietly.
House trained.
Answers to a whistle.
