Meet Pablo! He is an 10-month-old chihuahua-spaniel mix puppy rescued by TRD in September 2018. Pablo currently weighs 5-6 pounds and his full grown weight is expected to be around 15-20 pounds. Pablo is a spunky, lovable goofball. Within a few short weeks, he wooed the adults, kids, and dogs in his foster home. He is extremely social--he enjoys going out (car rides are his favorite) and loves to meet new people. He has been great interacting with other dogs too and would thrive in a busy household with kids and other dogs. Despite his small stature, he is active and loves to run around the yard. He is also an expert cuddler and likes to sit on his foster mom's lap. Pablo's foster family is working on basic puppy training with him. He is picking up crate training and house training. He is also learning new commands like Sit and Stay. Pablo is treat motivated so training him is easy and fun. Like most puppies, Pablo loves to chew on everything in sight--but he responds well when he is redirected to a chew toy. His forever family will need to continue his puppy training. Pablo will be a great addition to any family looking to add a puppy to their household. His sweet personality is sure to dazzle anyone. If you would like to meet Pablo, please fill out an adoption application on the TRD website and an adoption coordinator will be in touch to schedule a meet and greet. show less

Zozo is TRD's new dog on the block but this dog has been around the block a few times in his time. Zozo is an 11-year-old Bichon Frise mix and like fine wine, Zozo only gets better with age. Zozo came to us when his family fell on hard times and couldn't provide for Zozo anymore. Zozo is a spunky healthy senior who has many happy and healthy years ahead of him, and he can’t wait to meet the perfect family to enjoy them with. Zozo has a sweet, mellow natured personality. He is also a professional grade snuggler. He is not really interested in toys (that's for silly puppies); Zozo would rather engage in a heart to heart conversation with you. He is great with all adults, kids, dogs, and cats too. He loves going on walks--walk time is pretty much his favorite time of the day. He is steady and relaxed on walks and has excellent leash manners. Zozo loves car rides, and for wanderlust adopters, he is going to be the best travel buddy. Zozo is house trained, and crate trained. He sleeps in his crate overnight and is generally a good sleeper. Zozo would be a perfect fit for a family looking for a kid-friendly, low-maintenance dog and a sweet temperament. If you would like to meet Zozo, please fill out an application on the TRD website and an adoption coordinator will be in touch to schedule a meet and greet. show less

Are you looking for a sweet sidekick to keep you company? Meet Buddy! Buddy is an adorable spaniel mix who weighs in at around 25 pounds. He is full grown at 1.5 years old. Buddy had a bit of a rough start, and shows some signs of shyness with new people and new dogs. His foster mom is working diligently to show Buddy the world and socialize him a lot! Buddy lives with two dogs and they are definitely showing him the ropes! Buddy also attended a recent TRD event with dogs and humans and did great. He will continue to overcome his shyness with lots of practice. Buddy has pretty good leash manners, although can get distracted from time to time and pull. He is easily corrected though. He is very connected to his humans, so training Buddy will be easy and fun. Buddy loves a good car ride, and is happy to hit the road. What he loves most, though, is snuggle time with his people. This guy is a sweet and soulful friend who will always be by your side. Because Buddy is shy and could use some extra help, his new family will be highly encouraged to take advantage of the free training session offered as part of a TRD adoption. If you would like to meet Buddy, please fill out an adoption application on the TRD website and an adoption coordinator will be in touch to schedule a meet and greet. show less

Introducing TRD's latest recruit, Luna. Luna is a 5-pound chihuahua-terrier mix who came to TRD when a Good Samaritan rescued her from a less-than-ideal living situation. Luna was only a few weeks old and so tiny she could fit in a shirt pocket. Her foster family cared for her round the clock and she is now a romping stomping healthy puppy! Luna has now graduated to fitting in her foster mom's sweatshirt pocket. Luna's full grown weight should be under 10 pounds. Luna may be tiny, but she is mighty. She is spunky and loves to play. She is energetic like most puppies and loves to run around in her foster family's yard. She wrestles with her canine foster brother and is generally friendly with all dogs she meets. Her favorite game is "Fetch". She loves meeting new people, and showers them with the sweetest puppy kisses. She has a pleasing personality which makes her a good fit for most families. She will thrive in a home with other dogs but will do just fine on her own too. Luna is currently working on her potty training and house training. She is also working on crate training, and her family will want to continue to work on this with her. All TRD adoptions come with a coaching session with a trainer and with Luna crate training will be an important focus. Luna understands Come and Name Recall. Her forever family will want to continue her training and help her grow into a well behaved dog. Luna will be a great addition to a family looking to adopt a small breed puppy. If you would like to meet Luna, please fill out an adoption application on the TRD website and an adoption coordinator will be in touch to schedule a meet and greet. show less

Looking for a dog with fur as white as snow and a heart sweeter than a candy cane to make your holidays merrier? If yes, Jean Grey is the dog for you. Jean is a 1 year old Great Pyrenees / Cattle Dog mix who is full grown at about 30 lbs. Jean Grey is joyful in every way. She is timid but warms up pretty quickly in a new home and is great with dogs. She enjoys playing with her toys and happily prances around her foster mom's backyard. What is Jean's favorite activity, you ask? Belly rubs- she loves to flop down and demands impromptu belly rubs from her family. Prior to her rescue, Jean was most likely a backyard dog and her foster family has worked on getting her socialized with humans. Although she has made strides of progress, she spooks easily around new people and will need calm patience from her people. She is crate trained and potty trained. Crate training is essential as Jean Grey can get into mischief. She is working on leash walking and this will be an ongoing task in her forever home. Given her quirks, Jean will thrive in a home with another confident dog but she can do well on her own too, and she will do best in a home with a yard. Like most dogs of her breed, Jean is extremely smart and training her should be a fun for her forever family. If you would like to meet Jean, please fill out an adoption application and an adoption coordinator will be in touch to schedule a meet and greet. show less

Meet Ruby Doo! Ruby, along with her brother Scooby, were originally rescued by one of our dedicated volunteers when the puppies were thrown into her yard. We think the human trying to get rid of them was aiming for the canyon next to our volunteer's backyard and missed. Thankfully they landed right where they should have, with US! We brought them to Chula Vista animal control, and once their hold period was up, we officially made them TRD dogs. Scooby has been adopted and now it's Ruby's turn! Ruby is an awesome puppy. She is smart and playful, and very affectionate. She gets along well with everyone she meets, whether it's a human, dog, or even cat. She's a lover, and she doesn't care who knows it! Ruby has pretty much mastered her crate training and her house training, and is ready to work on her life skills with her new forever family. Ruby would be happy to be with another dog or on her own as an only dog, as long as she has plenty of love and interaction coming from her humans. Ruby weighs in at around 20 pounds at 13 weeks old, which means she will be on the bigger side for a doberman, somewhere in the 80 pound range, as an adult. If you would like to meet Ruby, please fill out an application on the TRD website and an adoption coordinator will be in touch to schedule a meet and greet. show less
