THIS IS A GUEST POST.
Introducing Ella Fitzgerald! She's an 8yr. old toy poodle with so much love to give even from her teeny tiny little 9lb body. She was discarded in the streets to survive…completely blind. When she was rescued she was a broken little flower who has since blossomed. Not only does she live life to the fullest, upon meeting, one would never know she is completely blind: her hearing is very sharp (hearing the breaking bag of treats and more) and we have seen her interact with another dog - chasing him in play and following very closely through her very keen impressive senses. Her loving fosters have taught her commands allowing her to maneuver around and walk up and down stairs. She is such a special girl: very independent, loves running and exploring the backyard and going for walks. But mostly, she loves to snuggle up next to you or on your lap. As long as she is near her person, her tail will never stop wagging.
She is great with people of all ages as long as they understand she needs the initial gentle first meeting and warms very quickly to other doggies with the proper introduction.
There are some minimal medical considerations (dry eye meds and allergy considerations). Her best fit home is one with an understanding and patient family who can see how this little blind girl can act just like a pup who can see, because she will bring you unimaginable joy as she has with her foster parents and every single person who has interacted with her.
If you would like to give this beautiful girl her forever home, please contact Carolina at email@example.com or Patricia at firstname.lastname@example.org or text 626-319-0326 and we will happily send you an adoption application. She comes spayed, fully vaccinated and chipped.

Please check our website for the next adoption event!
All of our amazing dogs are fully vetted, fixed, vaccinated and microchipped prior to adoption. They are then fostered by one of our experienced foster volunteers, who are able to assess temperament and personality and begin any necessary training. An adoption application, adoption fee, and home check are required for adoption.
Not 100% certain whether you're ready to commit to pet ownership? Consider fostering one of our amazing dogs. It is a crucial piece of the rescue process, and you can play a huge part in saving a dog's life, all the while deciding if that dog, or any dog, is the right fit for your lifestyle! If you know you can't be a forever owner but want to help out and get a little puppy love in return, this may be just the thing for you!
All supplies, food and veterinary care are provided to the foster by the rescue. No costs involved to you - just provide a safe and loving environment and we will do the rest! Fostering can be as short- or long-term as you would like, and we can place dogs with you that are conducive to your lifestyle and preferences (small, large, hypoallergenic, etc.)
