Meet Hazelnut, of the Nut litter! Hazelnut and her siblings were rescued from a local shelter when their mom starting turning on her newborn litter of 9 puppies. Six of these adorable pups came to TRD at the tender young age of two weeks and have been bottle fed and cared for by our amazing fosters. Now these puppies are romping, stomping, ready-to-roll seven-week-olds (as of early August). The mom of the litter is a beautiful German shepherd dog, and we are not sure about the dad. Some of the puppies look like labs, and some look like husky. One thing is for sure--they are all adorable! Hazel is the bossy little sister of the bunch. She has lots of spunk and doesn't let her brothers get away with anything. She is smart and sweet and has more of the lab look to her. She has been hanging out in her foster home with two of her brothers, as well as 3 adult canine foster siblings, 2 cats and a kitten, and a toddler (and his adult humans). Safe to say Hazel is getting well socialized in her young life! We can't wait to see how these little cuties turn out. It's hard to predict their adult size, but we believe they will be in the extra large range. If you would like to meet Hazel or any of the Nut puppies, 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 to adopt a feisty little nugget who will bring you all the joys of puppyhood with a tablespoon of spunk? Then look no further--Pelly is the puppy you need. Pelly came to TRD from a local shelter in July 2018 and at 4 months of age, she currently weighs under 5 pounds. Pelly is a border terrier mix and should top out around 15-20 pounds full grown. Although she is a tiny dog, she has a big personality. She is spunky and her silly antics make her even more adorable. She is great with humans and dogs in her foster home. She is incredibly patient in earning the trust of other dogs, which makes her a great fit for a family that already has dogs. She loves to run around the house with other dogs. And if she is alone, she entertains herself by hopping around the yard until she tires out. She loves to play with rope toys and chew on bullysticks and other animal chews. Pelly is crate trained and is working on her potty training. She is learning to potty outside but like most distracted puppies, she has accidents every now and then. She has also picked up a few commands like Come and Name Recall. Pelly has a tendency to chew on inappropriate items around the house (like furniture, rugs and her foster mom's toes) which is another classic puppy behavior. However, she responds well to redirection. Her forever family will have to continue to train Pelly so that she grows into a well behaved doggo. If you would like to meet Pelly, 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

Attention Schnauzer lovers! Yuki is TRD's latest recruit, joining the foster pack from the Imperial County Shelter. Yuki is a three-year-old Schnauzer full grown at 20 pounds, which makes her a good fit for most living situations. Yuki is calm and patient and loves to be around her people. She is great with adults, kids and dogs in her foster home. True to her breed, Yuki is a real smart cookie and has picked up more than a few tricks and commands within a few weeks in her foster home. She has excellent name recall and responds to commands like Sit, Stay, and Come. Yuki has also mastered crate training and house training, which should make her transition to her forever home easier. Her foster family has introduced her to the local dog park and dog beach where Yuki has been a total hit. She plays well with dogs her size. To keep her schnauzer body in shape, Yuki enjoys walks in her neighborhood twice a day. She is calm and non-reactive on the leash. She occasionally does get intrigued by a dog or a person and stops and stares at them but responds well to redirection.

Meet Teddy, a sweet, loving creature with the soul of a loyal dog and the body of a soft cotton ball. Teddy is a 2-year-old Maltese-Yorkie (possibly schnauzer) Mix. Teddy is full grown at about 14 pounds. Teddy has a strikingly adorable face with huge dove-shaped eyes and an always wagging tail to match. Fun fact about Teddy: he loves bath time! At two years of age, Teddy still has some silly antics left over from his puppyhood. He has lots of energy and enjoys playing in the backyard with his canine siblings. He is good with adults and dogs in his foster home. He also likes to go on leashed walks everyday. On walks, he has been leash reactive--he tends to barks at other dogs he sees on the walk. His foster family is working with the TRD trainer to teach him the right way to greet other dogs. Teddy's forever family will need to continue to train him until he loses his leash reactivity. According to his foster mom, Teddy is highly attentive and loving. After playtime he likes to curl up with his humans to unwind. He mastered crate training within a few weeks and now he goes into his crate at night without any command. He is also completely house trained. He is picking up basic commands like Sit, Stay and Down. Teddy can't wait to meet his forever family, someone who will love and cherish him and his silliness and most importantly, give him unlimited bath time! If you would like to meet Teddy, 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

Meet sweet and sassy Sadie! She's a 1-year-old shar pei/golden mix puppy rescued by TRD from HSIOC in June 2018. Sadie is a big puppy weighing around 40 pounds and should be in the 50 pound range full grown. According to her foster mom, Sadie has a ton of personality. She is great with adults and dogs in her foster home. She loves to play with her foster brother and sister and take long walks around her neighborhood. Living with her canine foster siblings, she is learning how to respect other dogs and take turns with toys. Sadie is great at playing fetch (although like most puppies, she occasionally does not want to give the ball back). She loves snuggling with her foster family and will climb up on the couch to get them and watch TV. Sadie is smart as a whip and very treat motivated, which makes her an ideal candidate for training classes to stimulate and tire out her puppy brain. She has a lot of potential and will excel at agility training classes. An active family that can take her on daily walks and hikes will be a great fit for Sadie’s energy. Sadie can sit and is learning the stay command. In a few weeks in her foster home, Sadie has made strides of progress with house training and crate training. She is sometimes reactive on the leash--her foster family is teaching her good leash walking manners. Sadie has all the sweetness and mischief unique to big puppies--her foster mom says she's the easiest puppy. She is silly and will keep her forever family happy and entertained with her antics. If you would like to meet Sadie, 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

Melly is a spunky 5-year-old Boston terrier mix from the Humane Society of Imperial County. She is crate trained, potty trained, and very food motivated. Thus far, she has been responsive to training with food and verbal cues and corrections. At a compact 28 pounds, this high-energy girl is very athletic and likes to be working and moving. Her foster mom says she absolutely loves to play ball, and has a super impressive vertical jump. She will need adequate exercise with purpose; we can see her excelling at flyball or Frisbee activity. Melly is a dominant alpha female with other dogs and will need experienced dog owners who will be committed to training and being the pack leaders in the home. Melly has lived with another dog in one of her foster homes but we feel she would do best in a home without other dogs, as she prefers human companionship and working type play over dog play. Proper on-leash introductions and closely monitored interactions with other dogs will be needed because her high energy and dominant characteristics can become intense and overwhelm other dogs. Although Melly lives with 2 human foster siblings and is great with them, we do not recommend a home with small children due to her high energy. Melly is ridiculously affectionate, playful, friendly, and goofy and will have no problem settling right in when she finds her perfect home. If you’re a Boston lover or looking for an athletic, loveable dog, Melly might be your girl! To meet Melly, 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
