Burlington - 8 year old male purebred Miniature Schnauzer. Burlington was rescued from a Riverside shelter where he came in as a stray. He was very dirty and matted and his eyes were caked shut. We had a dental done on him and all but 3 teeth had to be removed (it doesn't bother him.. he still wants to eat kibble!). He also battled some eye ulcers caused by having entropion (condition where eyelashes are turned inward and rubs against the eyes). After getting his eye ulcers healed, he had surgery on 8/6/2019 entropion surgery to fix his eye lids, he's doing great! Burlington is also on thyroid pill which cost about $11 a month. Burlington is a very friendly boy who loves everyone. He is a bigger boy at about 25 pounds

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

Fields – 9 month 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. He had 6 weeks of swim therapy to help strengthen him up. He is now fully recovered and ready to find a new home! We were very fortunate to get a lot of donations through facebook to help pay for little guy's surgery cost and are very thankful to all of those who gave. Fields came to us very heavy at 14 pounds... but we are proud to say we widdled his weight down to 11 pounds. Fields would do best with a doggie companion of similar size. He also requires a home with a fenced yard (no condos or apartments).

      Friends!      

Tinker- 4 year old female Yorkie/Maltese. Tinker (and Taylor) were rescued from a LA county shelter (we believe they were confiscated along with 20 other dogs). When we go them they were very skittish and would not interact with people. After a couple of weeks in foster care they have come around to being friendly girls. They shelter labeled them as 2 years old, however Both Tinker and Taylor look like they’ve had a number of litters so we guestimated them to be closer to 3-4 years of age. Both girls need work on housebreaking and well as leash training. They are however good with other dogs. We would like Tinker to go to a home that already has a well settled in dog. Tinker can be a little vocal (she is very alert to sounds!) so wouldn’t be a good apartment dog. Tinker had a dental (no extractions) and blood work done on her. The breed is a total guess.. we really don’t know her heritage. Tinker is about 6 pounds.

Both girls need work on housebreaking and well as leash training. They are however good with other dogs. Taylor had a dental (no extractions) and blood work done on her. Taylor has a slight “hump” in her back which we had the vet xray, they said it was due to either an old injury or a birth deformity, it causes her no pain and does not affect her mobility. The breed is a total guess.. we really don’t know her heritage. We would like Taylor to go to a home that already has a well settled in dog. Taylor is about 7 pounds.

Sookie - 4 year old female Poodle. Sookie was rescued from a LA county shelter where she had been turned in by her owner along with nine other dogs (all dogs were adopted) because he had too many dogs. She is a light apricot color and looks to be purebred poodle. Sookie is sweet as can be, gets along well with other dogs. She's a little timid at first but warms up very nicely. She as quick study who is learning a lot from her schnauzer foster sibling. Sookie is a tiny girl at about 12 pounds.

Harley - 1.5 year old male Shih Tzu/Maltese mix. His breed is actually a guess… but whatever he is he sure is cute! Harley was rescued from a LA county shelter where he came in as a stray. He is very skittish but not aggressive. He would do best in a home with another doggie pal to give him the kind of confidence that he needs. Because of his skittish nature, he needs an adult only quiet home with a patient adopter, we are also requiring he go to a home with another doggie pal of similar size. Harley is approximately 11 pounds.
