Ozzie - 3 year old male purebred Miniature Schnauzer. We rescued Ozzie originally back in January 2016 from a LA county shelter, he had been hit by a car and his right front leg had to be amputated. We thought we found his forever home, however his adopter fell upon hard times financially and she can no longer keep him with her current living situation. Ozzie is great with other dogs. He would do best in a home with another doggie pal or where someone is home most of the time. Ozzie is approximately 20 pounds. Ozzie is currently being fostered in the Lake Forest area and is being shown by private appointment only.

Glory - 3 year old female schnoodle. Glory was rescued from a LA county shelter just before 4th of July. she came into the shelter as a stray. She was in dread locks looking like a gray blob, it is doubtful she had ever been groomed before. Once she was cleaned up a cute little white poodle mix emerged. Glory had an adopter from the shelter than did not show to pick her up so we rescued her. Glory is wonderful with other dogs. She is high energy and very playful. Glory weighs approximately 14 pounds.

Carly - 2 year old female purebred Miniature Schnauzer. Carly was rescued from an LA county shelter where she came in as a stray. She was very nervous at the shelter and had her kennel card labeled with "caution". We found when we got her home she was very sweet and good with people. Although she's been great with her foster home, she is a nervous gal and can be protective when in new situations. Carly would be better in a home without kids. Carly gets along with submissive dogs but is a princess so does not get along with dominant dogs. She LOVES to play ball.. if you play ball with her you'll be her friend for life! Carly has a natural tail and natural ears that stand up. She is a small girl about 12 pounds.

Snookie - 1 year old female Shih Tzu mix. Snookie was rescued from a LA county shelter where she came in as a stray. She initially had an injury and was in the medical building, luckily it was a soft tissue injury which healed on its own. She was very matted and messy when we got her, it was difficult to see what breed she might be but after we had her shaved down we found the cutest little dog, she looks like she could even have Brussels Griffon in her! Snookie came with an ear infection which we found out was a foxtail embedded in her ear (our vet removed it when we had her spayed). She is a cute quiet girl that gets along well with other dogs. Snookie is approximately 13 pounds.

Gibbs - 2 year old male Bichon mix. Gibbs was rescued from a LA county shelter where he came in as a stray. He was pretty messy when we got him, he was gray with mats, and an assortment of accessories, namely ticks, fleas and foxtails. While we originally thought he was a schnoodle type, after grooming its obvious he is more of a bichon type. We also found he had wounds on his nose and under his chin which looks like they were dog bites (which are healing fine now)... no wonder the little guy was so timid and nervous at the shelter. Gibbs also had foxtails embedded in his ears which were removed. He is a timid little guy but after a few days has come around to wanting to be petted and loved. He gets along great with other dogs. Gibbs is approximately 10 pounds... he is on the thin side and should ideally be around 12 pounds.

Beanie - 4 year old male Shih Tzu mix. Beanie was rescued from a LA county shelter where he came in as a stray. We spotted him while picking up some schnauzers, he had been neutered and was ready to go home. He looks so pitiful we couldn't leave him behind. Besides being extremely emaciated, he had been stripped down to get all the fox tails out of him, he was riddled with holes from where foxtails had been. The shelter did a pre-neuter on him so they could take care of surgically removing some fox tails. We took him to the vet and found 4 more foxtails which were easily removed... but he needed additional surgery because we found 4 more that had to be surgically removed (we also did a dental on him since he was under). Poor guy... with a predominate under-bite and stitches all over his body, right now he looks like a cross between Dracula and Frankenstein!! He is still skinny but slowly gaining weight. He really is super sweet, a bit skittish at first but will melt into your arms. He will be a little looker when his fur grows back. We expect he will be ready for a new home at the beginning of July. Beanie has thankfully put on some weight in our care an now weighs approximately 10 pounds.

Faye - 10 year old female Chihuahua. My name is Faye. I don't understand why my family went away. We had 10 happy years together and then one day they took me to jail. I don't know what I did wrong... I am quiet and don't take up much room (I only weigh 8 lbs) and I try to be really nice. Although I'm a little old lady now, I still enjoy my life: a little walk around the block and a soft bed is all I need. I like other dogs but I'm so lonely and just want a human to care about me again. Faye can be seen by appointment at Yellow Brick Road Doggie Playcare in El Segundo Call 310-606-5507 or email southbaydoggie@hotmail.com for an appointment or more information.

Swannee - 10 year old male spaniel mix. Swanne Was rescued from a LA county shelter. He was listed at 10 years old but is likely older, with missing teeth, blind in one eye from cataracts, and a heart murmur. He is shaved in this picture, but actually has pretty fluffy golden fur (see his tail) which will grow back. Swannee is a super sweet gentle spaniel mix and weighs about 12 pounds. He is fine with other dogs but mostly he just likes to be held and hang out near people. He would be a wonderful calm companion for an older person, or as an addition to a family with a little extra room in their hearts and home for a needy soul. Swannee can be seen by appointment at Yellow Brick Road Doggie Playcare in El Segundo Call 310-606-5507 or email southbaydoggie@hotmail.com for an appointment or more information.
