Meet Lovable Luigi!  This guy is extra special to us. He and his brother were only a couple months old when we rescued them from Mexicali as strays in horrible condition.  Luigi had a couple of awful breaks in his hip and lower leg.  After several vet visits and consults he had surgery to repair his hip.  Luigi has spent time in a couple foster homes and they both love him so much! He is now 10 months old and weighs in at about 40lbs. He is always so happy- and he has the best butt wiggle to prove it. Sweet Luigi is crate trained, potty trained, good with dogs and kids and has pretty good leash skills too. His foster says he's pretty much perfect.  Luigi needs a family that understands he will never be able to be a super active dog. He will have a forever special walk/hop/limp and too much stressful activity won't be good for his back legs. He will require a home without a lot of stairs and without any dog siblings that are high energy or rough players. He goes on 2-3 short, slow walks per day and is still doing water physical therapy too! Luigi needs a family that is committed to making sure his health and orthopedic recovery is a priority. He will give you so much more in return with his ridiculous amount of love! If you think you are the right fit, to spoil and love Luigu forever, please fill out an adoption application on our website.  show less

Meet TRD’s sweetest little fighter!!!  Miss Lucy has had one heck of a road so far.  We rescued this two year old, 15 pound bundle of love in horrific condition from a gnarly case of mange.  She would scratch herself raw and cry in discomfort.  Cuddled in PJs and wearing a cone to protect her skin, Lucy and her playful energy still shined through from day one. Just hours after being in a foster home, she played fetch and had a case of the zoomies!  What we didn’t know at that time is Lucy‘s road to recovery would be long and complex. Lucy‘s mange was very hard to treat and after many rounds of medications, vet visits and specialty dermatology visits, we believe we have found some answers and begun some additional helpful treatments and her allergies are now under control! Sadly though, throughout this process Lucy had a major setback and was hospitalized for pulmonary hypertension. We did everything possible for her while she was in ICU.  Lucy and her fighting personality pulled through but she will be on medication for the rest of her life for her condition. There is a chance Lucy’s lifespan will be reduced due to this diagnosis.  But again- this still hasn’t stopped her!! She is a playful, cuddly, sweet girl who gets along with all humans and and dogs. Her long term foster has been absolutely amazing but it’s time for Lucy to find a forever home so we can take in more dogs that need help. If you have it in your heart to adopt a super loving, sweet girl with forever medical needs please fill out an adoption application on our website.  show less

Hiiiiieeee! My name is Teague and I’m a Husky! I had a rough start in this world but don’t let that fool ya, I still have alllll the energy of a Husky dawg! Toys like a ball or stuffy are OK, but my most favorite toy in the whole wide world is Devlin McDougal, my foster brother! I would love another dog in my forever home. Sit, Come, Name Recall and Fetch are my jams. I also sleep in my crate at nighttime and am good with kids, strangers and other dogs. Mic drop. Some stuff I’m still working on are potty training, being a mouthy puppy as I get through this teething thing and walking on a leash without my foster brother. One of my foster Mama’s favs about me is how photogenic I am, I’m a good listener, and I’m eager to learn…OK…that was three things! Hee hee! Even though I have cool markings and am basically a super model, I am more than just a pretty face! I need at least 90 minutes of exercise every day and that is on top of lots of doggie playtime! I did say I’m a Husky right?! My coat is thick so extreme heat is not a good look for me. I run hot! I like to run! And if I eat the wrong things I may get an upset tummy! My GI track (I think that means my tummy) is sensitive so I may need a premium diet. I’m 4 months old and 21 pounds now so will eat a lot and grow up to be 45-60 pounds! Do you like to run!? Do you like to play?! Do you have a doggie!? Do you love energy and adventure?! Do you have husky or high energy dog experience?? Yes??!! Let’s meet!!!      show less

Curry is the happiest guy around! He came to us from a local shelter, is about 8 months old, crate and potty trained, and good with all dogs, people, and the toddler in his foster home! We were told Curry had swimmers syndrome, but it is more likely he has a congenital defect in his back legs. They are straight and he is unable to bend them. That doesn’t stop him though, he can run in the backyard at his foster home and he loves to wrestle with his foster siblings! We did a DNA test and he is a poodle mix, so no/low shed! He is getting his first haircut soon! At about 30 pounds now we think he will be about 35 pounds when full grown. Curry is adorable, fluffy, and sweet, his perfect home would not have a lot of stairs he needs to use daily. A yard and pup to play with would be awesome but not really necessary, he is able to keep himself entertained for hours. He has never met a toy he doesn’t love, or a SHOE! Curry is not going to be a super active dog, no long walks or hikes but we bet he could learn to be a wagon pup so he can get out and explore the world! We would love for Curry to find some humans with the ability to take him for physical therapy, a water treadmill and stretching of the legs may help with his mobility. He is a long bodied low-rider so people who understand the importance of maintaining an ideal weight for Curry will be a plus. If you would like to meet Curry please fill out an adoption application and his foster will be in touch. show less

Happy Spring everyone! My name is Kiera and I’m an adorable freckle-chested Lab/Terrier mix. At nearly a year old I weigh in at a petite 35 lbs. I may not be completely grown, but close to it, so you know what you’re getting with me. I’m a pretty good catch, if I do say so myself, but if I set my mind to it, you’d never catch me. Of course, if treats are involved, who am I to refuse you the pleasure of giving me one. My favorite toys are the ones my foster Mom calls Kong, but I enjoy a good rope toy to toss around too. I’m a smart girl and know all kinds of commands like sit, stay, come, down, and off. Not so pleased with that last one, but I get it. I sleep in my crate at night now and settle down after a few minutes spent making sure my foster peeps don’t want me to join them. Also, you don’t have to worry about crating me when you leave home because word is I take advantage of nap time once you go. My perfect person or persons will appreciate my cuddles and enjoy long walks on the beach. I’d hope you would be patient with me because I’m not perfect yet. I hadn’t had the best first year until the folks at TRD found me, so I’ll still be perfecting my potty training and need to go outside often. I also didn’t get a chance to socialize with other dogs much, so I’m shy initially. Gentle introductions are my cup of tea. A new family who will watch me closely in the early days will be important since a lot of this life stuff is still new to me. I admit I’ve made a few poor decisions, like playing with the most wonderful smelling shoe I ever smelt for example. So, now that you’ve heard the good and the not so good about yours truly and I’ve wowed you with my awesomeness, let’s meet. I’m so very ready to spring into my new life. If you are interested please fill out an adoption application on our website and an adoption coordinator will be in contact     show less

Emilia is a sweet sweet low maintenance little lady! She appears to have had a hard life and can be shy and cautious at first, but what she wants more than anything is to become your most loyal companion! Once she trusts you, she will follow you to every room of the house bringing you the best company! Her biggest wish is to lay on your lap while you work, watch tv, or go out to a restaurant!  We think Emelia is at least 10 years old, she’s about 5 pounds, and just had a dental where they had to remove all her remaining teeth. Other wise she is healthy for an older pup.  Emelia enjoys going on short walks, loves to eat and has a sweet spot for human food. She can’t bark but will cluck like a chicken if she is stressed. Emilia is not interested in toys so far but show signs of being playful when she’s comfortable. She is not interested in other dogs or cats but she gets along well with them. She knows to potty outside but mostly uses pee pad and is accurate 98% of the time. She can stay by herself for a good part of the day but she really prefers to have company! Emelia can sleep in a crate, a dog bed or a human bed, with no problem! Her best forever home would be one that truly  understands she has lived a few hard and unpleasant years and is ready to give her the coziest, sweetest years she has left!

Are you looking for a sociable and mischievous friend? Meet Mocha, a 10-month-old beagle. Mocha was owner surrendered from a family that was unable to care for her needs. Mocha grew up in a backyard and it’s evident she had little socialization outside of her home. Because of this, Mocha would do best in a home with a confident male dog to show her the ropes. Despite her lack of early socialization, true to her breed Mocha loves meeting people!  Beagles love to be part of the action, and Mocha is no exception to this beagle trait. She loves attention from her people and likes to be near her canine dog friends. Because of this, Mocha would not do well as an only dog or in a home where she would be left alone for 8 hours a day. Mocha is very playful and loves fetching tennis balls, playing tug, and roughhousing with her canine siblings. Mocha would love to be part of an active household, as she is not a lapdog or couch potato.  After being in her foster home, Mocha is now crate trained, 90% potty trained and she can walk on a leash and follow her human. When out for walks, Mocha is learning how to follow her human and not the many scent trails - a work in progress.  If you are interested in adopting Mocha, please fill out an application at: https://therescueddog.org/adopt/adoption-application/ Prior beagle experience is preferred. show less

Hey everyone. I’m so excited because it’s time for me to find a special family to call my own. If you are looking for a pup that’s as sweet as can be and has lots of love to give, I’m your girl. My friends at TRD say I’m a smart, energetic, goofy, happy four-month-old and 22 pounds of pure puppy adorableness. I’m a Lab/Boxer mix, whatever that means. I’m pretty darn cute if I do say so myself. Even though I’m getting bigger, I still really enjoy being picked up and cuddled. I’d love to have my very own family to take me on walks, to the dog park, or just to hang out at home. People love me and I love them. I also love, love, love other doggies, so having a doggy brother or sister would be great. But, if it’s just me and my new people that works too. I just want to be close to my new family all the time, so I don’t miss any of the fun. My favorite toys are, well, all of them. And, if I don’t have one handy, a high-quality stick works for me. If you tell me to “get it” consider it got. I love learning new things. Foster Mom says I’m a smart girl. I understand commands like “sit”, “down”, and “off”. I’m even learning how to “roll over”. I’m good at walking on a leash with a harness and I’ve even been out and about without a leash sometimes. I always try to keep an eye on my people and listen very well. I’d love a yard where I can do my zoomies, roll around in the grass, and play, play, play. I know I still have some things to work on, but I promise to do my very best. I’m so excited to meet you!

Meet Winky! This adorable large breed great dane/shepherd pup is ready for her forever home. Winky loves to play with her humans, foster dog siblings and also self entertains with her chew toys. She's a sweet, athletic girl who is crate trained, potty trained and good with dogs. At 8-9 months old and 60 pounds she'll likely be 70-75 lbs when full grown. Winky can overwhelmed with too much stimulation like noisy environments or around multiple dogs, but she has done really well with repeated exposure. Winky will thrive with a family who understands and respects her needs. Leash walking and confidence building will need to be part of her training program. We think she will thrive in a house with a fenced yard and hopefully another  dog to pal around with and show her the ropes while she matures. She is currently fostered with a big Labrador retriever, an older small dog, and has been around several small puppies. She has been amazing at adjusting her play to all.    Winky came to us with some neurological symptoms. She had multiple medical exams and testing but there was no obvious cause or medical condition found for her symptoms. She is a goofy, happy, healthy pup with some minor neuro dysfunction. Winky is looking for a family that will accept her and patiently work with her, keep her safe and help her to flourish. If you would like to meet this special girl, please fill out an application on our website. show less
