Alexander, TRD's latest recruit, is a handsome Australian Shepherd Mix who is sure to steal your heart with his dashing good looks with a charming personality to match. Alex has a smooth beige brown coat and a widow's mark on his forehead, which give him a unique and dashing look. At 1.5 years as of March 2018, he is full grown at about 45 pounds, making him an ideal addition to a family looking to adopt a smart, medium sized dog. According to his foster dad, Alex is naturally a friendly, calm, and confident dog. He is well-mannered and easy-going with people and dogs in his home and when he meets them in his daily walks. He responds well to correction from dogs in his foster home and has been respectful with them. He loves to play with them in the backyard and has been great on leashed walks as well. At home, his favorite toys are Nylabones. Alex is working on his crate training and he is already comfortable sleeping in his crate over night. He has counter surfed and chewed on non-toy items in his home on occasion--he responds well to redirection and is learning to phase out of these hangover habits from his puppy days. As a medium sized dog, daily walks, exercise and mental stimulation are important to ensure Alex is happy, content, and tired. Like most Shepherd mixes, Alexander is a smart dog and loves to learn new commands and tricks. He has already picked up "Sit" and name recall. If you and your family are currently looking for a friendly, out-going, and charming dog to adopt, Alex is going to be a perfect match for you, however he is a herding dog so he will not do well in a home with young children. If you would like to meet Alexander, 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

Attention Schnauzer lovers! Meet Maggie, a 5-year-old Schnauzer who took the freedom ride with TRD from the Humane Society of Imperial County in March 2018. Maggie is full grown and weighs about 16 pounds. Maggie does not shed, which makes her a great fit for adopters looking for a hypoallergenic dog. Although Maggie is young in age, she is an old soul at heart. She is sweet-natured, mellow, and attentive. She does not need much attention (seeking attention is for silly puppies, and Maggie is way too dignified for that). She just loves to be around people and follows her foster mom around the house. Maggie is affectionate in her own unique way--cuddling isn't her style, but she likes to sit in her foster mom's lap. She also enjoys a good belly rub. Maggie is currently working on her house training skills, along with learning some basic commands. True to her personality, Maggie does not play much with toys or other dogs but she likes to go on walks around the neighborhood. She has been great on the leash. She is not reactive to other dogs or people. Maggie would be a great addition to a family seeking a sweet and mellow lower energy dog. If you would like to meet Maggie, 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

Are you looking for a smart, sweet, cuddly, spunky puppy? If so, Sugar is your girl! Sugar, a Catahoula leopard mix, came to us on a Wings of Rescue flight from a shelter in Louisiana. Sugar was found as a young stray puppy in LA. Her age is estimated to be about 4-5 months old now; a perfect age for adoption! Sugar is potty trained, crate trained and is coming along nicely with other training including name recall and walking on leash. Sugar is about 18 pounds now and will probably reach about 30 pounds. She is currently in a foster home with another dog and kids and is perfect with everyone. Her foster mom reports she, of course, has some puppy behaviors, as in stealing socks and the occasional mouthing while playing, but overall she is a fantastic puppy. Sugar has some energy to burn and some herding tendencies, so she’ll need an active family that respects her need for exercise and mental stimulation. She is athletic and agile and loves to jump and leap around while playing. We can see her potential as an agility dog! She is very smart and extremely food motivated which will help with training. She loves to play with other dogs and so far hasn’t met a canine or human she doesn’t love. Her foster family adores her and says she’s the perfect balance of puppy playfulness, medium to high energy, and the ability to just chill and snuggle on the couch! If you’d like to meet Sugar, please fill out and application on The Rescued Dog’s website. show less

Carrie is a 1.5 year old, sweet beagle mix. TRD saved Carrie’s pregnant mom back in 2016, and she was adopted as a 4 month old puppy. This sweets girl, came back to us a couple months ago through no fault of her own. Since having her back in foster care we’ve assessed her health, been helping her gain confidence with training and we have been socializing her with dogs in various environments. Carrie was diagnosed with juvenile onset hip dysplasia and had a juvenile pubic symphysiodesis (JPS) procedure done as a young pup prior to her adoption. Upon her return to TRD, Carrie has been seen by our vet and has had an orthopedist consult for her hip dysplasia. Carrie will need a few supplements and medications throughout her life for her hips. As of now she does not seem to be in pain and runs and plays happily. As with any hip dysplasia diagnosis, supplements and exercise management is key. Carrie enjoys her humans a lot! She is very affectionate and looks to her humans for guidance and confidence. Carrie is crate trained, potty trained and is perfecting her leash manners. Continuing her training program will be important. She has been at dog parks and is curiously friendly and interested in other dogs. On leash, slow, respectful introductions are best. Her foster mom adores her and says she’s sweet, goofy and happy. Carrie has had a bit of a rough road and we’re looking for a calm environment and a patient family who will enjoy giving Carrie everything she deserves. show less

Meet Crouton, an adorable 4 month old Australian Shepherd Mix who joined TRD from the Imperial County Shelter in Februrary 2018. Crouton weighs about 25 pounds and his full grown weight should be in the 40-50 pound range. For a large breed puppy, Crouton has a sweet and mellow temperament. He is playful and easy going with all people and dogs he meets. He is also great with cats in his foster home- curious yet patient and respectful (he can be adopted into a family with cats). On trips to the local dog park, Crouton has been a well behaved puppy and played nicely with dogs of all sizes and age. When full grown, with his breed mix and his personality, Crouton will be a great fit for an active family. During playtime, Crouton is a complete goofball, cracking up his foster mom with his belly flops and other unique antics. He enjoys running, sniffing and playing around with his foster canine sibling. His favorite toys are antler chews and squeaky toys. After playtime, Crouton loves to snuggle with his foster family and snuggling with a puppy with coat as soft as cotton is just as perfect as it sounds. Crouton is still learning to be independent- his foster mom is teaching him good crate manners along with potty training.Crouton also loves to go on walks around the neighborhood. He is still learning how to walk on a leash, and he tends to get anxious with unfamiliar sights and sounds. His foster mom is teaching him good leash manners. He is a fast learning puppy, and has come a long way in a few weeks. He also understand commands like Sit, Name Recall and Down. Like most puppies, Crouton tries to chew on shoes and socks but gives it back to his foster mom when redirected with an appropriate chewing toy.

Welcome Reindeer puppies! Mom Mitzi, a sweet beagle mix, came to TRD from the Humane Society of Imperial County right before Christmas, very pregnant. She held out until New Year's Day, and gave birth to six very adorable puppies, Dasher, and Dancer, and Prancer, and Vixen, Comet, and Cupid, and Donner and Blitzen! These adorable puppies each have their own look and personalities. We think there were probably 2 dads, one a white poodle mix guy, and the other maybe a terrier mix? Whatever the dads were, Mitzi sure made some cute pups. Comet is a fun-loving, confident puppy, and the biggest of the litter. He also has a very sweet personality, according to his foster mom. This guy is the instigator of the litter, and always seems to be up to something. He is a smart little guy and would love learning tricks. He likes to be entertained and will need exercise to keep him stimulated. He wouldn't necessarily need another dog in the home, but he would enjoy having a canine sibling around to play with. Mom Mitzi is about 25 pounds full grown, and we think these puppies will be in the 15 to 30 pound range full grown. The pups are 2 months old as of March 1st, and will be spayed or neutered and up to date on shots at the time of adoption. If you would like to meet any of the Reindeer 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

These adorable puppies each have their own look and personalities. We think there were probably 2 dads, one a white poodle mix guy, and the other maybe a terrier mix? Whatever the dads were, Mitzi sure made some cute pups. Handsome Blitzen is the most independent of the Reindeer puppies. When the rest of the puppies are snuggling together, Blitzen can usually be found snoozing in his own space. According to his foster mom, Blitzen is great at self entertaining. He will be a toy guy as he gets older. Blitzen was the first of the puppies to brave the outdoors. He is smart and clever, and will love learning behaviors and tricks with his new family. As an independent guy, he would probably be fine as an only dog, but he is also agreeable to canine company. Mom Mitzi is about 25 pounds full grown, and we think these puppies will be in the 15 to 30 pound range full grown. The pups are 2 months old as of March 1st, and will be spayed or neutered and up to date on shots at the time of adoption.

These adorable puppies each have their own look and personalities. We think there were probably 2 dads, one a white poodle mix guy, and the other maybe a terrier mix? Whatever the dads were, Mitzi sure made some cute pups. Appropriately named Cupid is the sweetest of the bunch, according to her foster mom. Cupid is loving and submissive with her litter mates. She is also good at self entertaining, and is confident without being overly mischievous. Cupid is not shy about vocalizing, and has a terrier-like bark. A true lover, Cupid would love another dog in her new forever home. Mom Mitzi is about 25 pounds full grown, and we think these puppies will be in the 15 to 30 pound range full grown. The pups are 2 months old as of March 1st, and will be spayed or neutered and up to date on shots at the time of adoption.

Whatever the dads were, Mitzi sure made some cute pups. Dasher is most like her mom Mitzi in looks. According to her foster mom, Dasher has a bold personality, and is tough and very solid. Dasher also has a sweet side, and her foster mom reports that she is the most intelligent pup of the bunch. It's not necessary for Dasher to have a canine companion in her new home but she will get bored without entertainment. We think she will be the kind of dog who will love toys and other stimulation when she gets older. Mom Mitzi is about 25 pounds full grown, and we think these puppies will be in the 15 to 30 pound range full grown. The pups are 2 months old as of March 1st, and will be spayed or neutered and up to date on shots at the time of adoption.

Adorable pug alert #2! Lucy came to TRD from the Humane Society of Imperial County in February 2018. She and her live-in boy friend Poncho were used as breeding partners by a backyard breeder in Brawley, but they managed to escape and make their way to HSOIC, where TRD gladly picked them up and whisked them away to San Diego. Lucy is a friendly, playful, and energetic dog. There isn't a soul Lucy has met she didn't like--she is friendly with people, children, dogs, and cats. She is just about as pugalicious as a pug can be. Lucy weighs in at 20 pounds and she likes to stay in shape with daily leashed walks (she's great on the leash) and dog park visits on the weekend. Since this is first time living inside a home, Lucy is currently picking up crate and house training. She occasionally has accidents inside the home but is getting better at it everyday. At meal times, Lucy tends to guard her food from other dogs. Her foster mom is teaching her to be confident and phase out of this habit. Now that her breeding days are behind her, Lucy is a full time professional cuddler. She is a great companion and loves to be with her humans at all times and shower them with kisses. If you would like to meet Lucy, 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
