Reese, so Sweet!

We pulled Reeses this week and she is so adorable! She is a tiny little thing that makes you want to scoop her up and cuddle her. We gave her a warm bath and she felt like a new girl. Reese is about 8 years old. She is a Cocker mix. She has severe muscle atrophy. It could be from lack of activity. She’s on the thin side so we’re giving her a mixture of adult and puppy food.She is being transported to California where she will need medical attention and a foster home. Any help is so appreciated!!

Curly Girl Pupdate

Sleepy Curly

Curly is an unique character. This little girl is just so super sweet and cuddly. She hates to have you out of sight and needs tons of attention. Curly is ready for her furever family!

Curly is an adorable and sweet little girl who we think is a cavalier/cocker mix. She is only about 18 pounds and approximately 8 years old.

Curly came to us from the Las Vegas shelter with several issues. First, she was not spayed and had 4 mammary tumors that needed to be removed. She also has a significant heart murmur (4-5/6) so we did an x-ray to see size of her heart and it is enlarged. She also had a cough which we knew was not kennel cough. Unfortunately, this means she will eventually go into congestive heart failure. That is not saying that she will drop dead in the near future. She probably has several good years ahead of her. The good news is that we started her on heart medications (2 different ones) and her cough is already 100% better, barely even coughing at all.

She also had a mass removed from her the top of her head and had a dental. This girl got the works! No extractions and still waiting for the results of the biopsy of the mammary tumors. We ran bloodwork and urinalysis on her and both were perfect. She has typical cocker ears that need to be cleaned on a regular basis (came with ear infection). Eyes are a little cloudy, but she gets around great and appears to see just fine.

She does great with other dogs…..does not want to play with them, but happily and easily cohabitates with them. She has anxiety issues, including separation anxiety. She must be with someone at every moment and craves human attention above all else.

She is very cuddly and loves to snuggle on the couch. She snores like a bear. She has mastered doggie door too!

The perfect home for curly would be a house with a stay at home family. Her family also needs to be prepared for a lifetime of heart meds. We know that Curly will be a treasure for any family.

Curly is currently in Romoland and is looking for a home where someone is around a lot.

Meet our newest senior sweetheart, Curly!!


Curly is coming to us from the Las Vegas shelter. This poor old girl is in need of some pretty extensive medical treatment!

Curly is a geriatric, intact female, with a mass on top of head, heavy dental tartar, cloudy eyes, and a grade IV heart murmur. She is going straight to our awesome vet so we can get her started on the right treatment plan and begin addressing her multiple medical conditions.

If you can find it in your heart to donate to her care, here’s how you can help:

Mr. Marty needs your help!


Marty is a little red cocker mix who probably also has some doxi in him as he is long and a bit low, but very cute. We recently got him from the OC shelter and he had his initial exam today.

His health isn’t too bad for a 10 year old. He is not neutered and has significantly bad breath, so a dental and neuter are scheduled for next week. He also barely eats and is bone thin, so he is getting spoiled with his very own chicken dinner.

Marty is completely 100% blind and somewhat disoriented. He is anxious right now, but it’s hard for blind dogs to acclimate sometimes. Right now he is pacing and going in circles. We are working with him to help him feel comfortable and more confident. Right now it seems that being in smaller spaces and having someone near him helps. He is a very nice little boy who just needs a little extra TLC.

If you can find it in your heart to donate to his care, here’s how you can help:

Good news for elsie

Dr. Card called with an update on Elsie…she removed the big tumor from her wrist, 3 mammary tumors and the growth on her who-who, and spayed her.  Big day for Elsie.  Teeth are not bad, but ears are a bad.  Polyps, polyps, polyps……never going to be good.  She had ear meds, two weeks ago and so far not re-infected. We will have to keep an eye on them. They are so closed with scar tissue they can’t heal properly.   All the tumors were removed and recommended for biopsy, The wrist one was particularly concerning since it was attached to a blood vessel, but Dr Card got it off and managed to close the site. But the biopsy did come back malignant. However, we got good margin and don’t expect to impact her again at her age. Elsie is such a sweet girl. She will be ready to go home very  soon. We thank you for your generous donations towards her medial bills

Quirky Dogs for special people

We always have a quirky dog or two to find homes for and we always do. Our motto is, What is a misery for one family is a treasure for the right family. And we have proven that over and over again. However, we have several very quirky dogs in that need just the right home at this time. Donations for our quirky dogs medical care:

Ruffles is a gentle little soul but he has suffered from allergies his whole live. He now has dry eye requiring daily drops, chronic ears needing daily washing and special meds and his skin just needs time to heal. He will soon be a special boy perfect for the loving caretaker in you. Ruffles needs a foster or adoption home immediately. Ruffles is about 10-12 years old and currently in Romoland CA.


Winston is a sweet boy with a sensitive stomach. We got him stable with a prescription diet and daily meds. He now needs a cushy bed, lots of attention and an occasional stroll around the block to make his world complete. Winston is about 13 years old and currently in Romoland, CA,


Jamaica is a curmudgeon of a girl. She needs a home with not other dogs so she can be the Queen Bee of her house. When you are Jamaica it is all about ME, ME, ME….so she needs a home where a girl can rule the roust and be the Queen of the day every day. Jamaica is about 10-12 years old and needs work on her house training. Jamaica is currently in Romoland, CA.


Ritchie is a grumpy old man. He doesn’t like other dogs for the most part and he has some rules, like don’t touch that collar but in general he has a sweet heart under all that grumbling. And he is a very handsome boy. He will make someone who like a quirky boy a special relationship. Ritchie is about 8-10 years old and is ready to try out a foster or adoption home as soon as he can. Ritchie is currently in Palmdale, CA.
