Edison – 2 year old male Miniature Schnauzer/Shih Tzu mix. Edison showed up at a LA county shelter as a stray around Halloween, he was microchipped and his owner opted to not reclaim him (for what we could tell it looks like he was previously adopted six months before). While at the shelter he had an injury to his tail requiring his tail be amputated... unfortunately when we got him the bone was sticking out and he required a second surgery (not his tail is docked about the size a pointer would have). After several weeks of healing he is ready for a home. Edison gets along well with other dogs, he is great with people, very affectionate. He has a underbite which makes it look like he is always smiling. Edison currently weights approximately 17 pounds.

A Special Thank You
To Everyone
that Donated for Fields Surgery!!

Fields – 1 year old male Miniature Schnauzer/ShihTzu mix. Fields was rescued from a LA county shelter where he came in as a stray. We noticed he was at a private vet so called to see what was wrong and if he needed rescuing. They told us he had tested postive for parvo. Before we could commit to taking him we lined up one of our vets that could isolate and treat him. We called back the shelter to say was could take him, they then told us he had a bad hip also. After rescuing him he went straight to our vet for monitoring, isolating and evaluating him. The good news turned out he was parvo free, the bad news is he had hip dysplasia in both hips and required surgery. We got his GI problems resolved and had an orthopedic vet evaluate him. They subsequently did do bio-lateral FHO (femoral head ostectomy) surgery on 5/3/2019. Fields had 6 weeks of water therapy after that. We are thankful that Fields made a complete recovery. The vet said little dogs like Fields do very well in the long run of things. Fields can run, walk and play like any other dog.. he does have difficulty with stairs though and needs to be carried. Fields would do best with a doggie companion of similar size. He also requires a home with a fenced yard (no condos o Fields is approximately 12 pounds r apartments).

Luna – 3 year old female maltese/terrier mix. Luna was rescued from a LA city shelter… where she had been turned in by her owner. She is sweet and friendly with people, was a bit nervous about her grooming around her face. Needs home without small kids (over 10 ok). She would do best as an only dog. She can be a bit alpha so needs an experienced adopter, prefer someone familiar with the breed. Luna is a small girl at around 11 pounds.

Tobie – 4 year old male Miniature Poodle. Tobie was rescued from a LA county shelter where he came in as a stray and was injured (presumably he had been hit by a car). Luckily he only had soft tissue injuries and some abrasions. Tobie was also microchipped and his owner was contacted by decided not to reclaim him. He was very matted (apparently not groomed in a long time) so had to be shaved down. Tobie is a very dominate dog and required that we send him to a trainer to work with him, while he is much better he will still require an experienced alpha owner and a home without small children. Tobie gets along great with other dogs. Tobie is approximately 13 pounds.
