Meet Persephone, a 10-month-old pup brought to TRD from the Humane Society of Imperial County. Persephone is a cattle dog-border collie mix, currently weighs 20 pounds, and may put on a few more pounds before she is full grown. Like her namesake, Persephone has the personality of a complete goddess. She is a sweet and affectionate dog who loves giving and getting attention. Within a few weeks in her foster home, Persephone has opened up her loving, true self to her family. She is great with adults, kids, and other dogs in her foster home. Like most puppies, she is full of energy and loves to run and play. Her favorite toys are balls, ropes, and stuffed toys. She loves to go on walks and at other times she likes to run and sniff around in the yard. Although she is new to leashed walks, Persephone has really picked up leash training and has been generally good on the leash. She occassionally tries to bite and pull on it, but with proper training she can be trained out of it. Given her affectionate personality, with the right amount of time and attention, Persephone could be easily trained. She has already picked up a few commands along with crate and house training. Like most puppies, Persephone also has a tendency to chew on inappropriate items around the house. Her foster mom has been training her on this behavior and has noticed that Persephone is slowly (and reluctantly) starting to catch on that chewing (unfortunately) may not be desirable after all. This affectionate puppy is sure to bring joy this holiday season into her forever family's life. If you would like to meet Persephone, 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 workout buddy who will keep you in shape through the holiday season with an added bonus of unlimited love and licks? Meet Dennis, a Border Collie mix who came to San Diego on the Wings of Rescue Flight all the way from Louisiana after Hurricane Harvey. Dennis is 1 year old as of October 2017 and is a full grown at about 45 pounds. Dennis is a kind-hearted and sweet pup who has connected very well with his foster dad in just a few short weeks. Dennis loves to hang out with his pack (other dogs in his foster home) and spends his time romping around in the backyard along with 2-3 mile long walks each day. Like any Border Collie, Dennis needs ample exercise and a proper daily routine to keep him busy. His forever family will need to continue with this routine. He has shown good promise with training--he understands "Sit" and has good name recall. He is completely house trained. Teaching him more tricks and commands will also be a good way to provide mental stimulation. Dennis loves to meet people, dogs, and kids--he may seem shy in the beginning but warms up soon enough. According to his foster dad, Dennis has been a good company when dining out. He calmly sits around his foster and loves to people watch! Dennis would make a wonderful addition to any active family that is looking to adopt a high energy dog. Dennis is a happy dog with a kind personality who will be a loyal companion to his family. If you would like to meet Dennis, 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

Meet Frankie, aka Frankie Four Feet! Frankie came to TRD from the Humane Society of Imperial County. Originally picked up in El Centro by animal control as a stray, Frankie was transferred over to HSOIC because it was too hot for him at animal control's facilities and he was having trouble breathing with his little smoosh face. HSOIC asked if we could take him because he seemed to have some health issues. We gladly agreed to take on this little charmer, and are we glad we did! Frankie is a fun-loving guy who goes everywhere with his foster mom. He's a hit at the office and at happy hours alike. When we first got Frankie, we brought him to our vet, where we discovered that he has a heart murmur. He also had a treatable tick-borne disease, which has since completely cleared up. We got Frankie on a regimen of heart meds and supplements for his joints, and we are pretty sure this 9-year-old is ready to live forever! Frankie is sporty and spunky and likes a good walk, but he also appreciates nice long naps (snoring required!) Frankie took to crate training immediately and has never had an accident or issue in his crate. Frankie was not neutered when TRD first took him in, and was fond of marking, well, everything. He has since been fixed and has learned that marking is not a desirable behavior, but his foster mom still keeps a close eye on him (you can't blame a guy for trying!) Frankie is a fit 21.5 pounds, and is in great shape. Frankie lives with three other dogs and gets along great with everyone. He even lets himself get goaded into wrestling with his young canine foster sister from time to time. Out and about, Frankie is a real gentleman and greets other dogs with a friendly wag of his tail (yes, a Boston with a tail!) Overall, Frankie is everything that is lovable about Bostons: he is handsome, sporty, snuggly, and just a little bit sassy. He's always got a twinkle in that one eye of his. If you would like to meet Frankie, 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

Meet the Clueless puppies! They are aptly named after the characters from the 90's romcom Clueless, because that's exactly what these puppies are--Clueless! In the best kind of way, of course. Now that they are with TRD, they are living the dream, puppy style, and have already forgotten their rough start in the shelter. They are merely 9 weeks old as of mid September 2017 and they weigh under 5 pounds. These spaniel-terrier mix puppies are expected to weigh about 15-25 pounds full grown. Cher spends her day romping and playing with her siblings in her foster's yard. Her favorite toys are rope and stuffies. She has an adorable and loving personality coupled with the playfulness of a puppy. She is friendly with adults, kids, dogs, and cats in her foster home. According to her foster mom, Cher and her sister Tai are usually the first ones to settle down after play time. With their young age, these puppies have not had any training yet--they are truly "clueless" in that aspect as well. They are currently working on learning some basic commands, along with potty training and crate training. They sleep in a crate at night. They haven't had any leash walks yet, so their leash behavior is unknown. Cher's forever family will to be expected to continue to work on training her further so she can learn to be a well-mannered companion. Cher loves spending time with her siblings but she is looking forward to finding her forever family soon. She knows she is the prettiest puppy ever so her adoption should be easy-peasy! As if?? If you would like to meet Cher, 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 an active and fun-loving buddy to join you for walks, runs, hikes, and all of life's adventures? Meet Zippy! Zippy is a handsome and energetic pup looking for an active family to take him along for all the fun stuff! Zippy is smart and excited to learn new things. He already knows sit and come, and his name recall is good, even when he's at a distracting place like the dog park. Zippy is also friendly with everyone. He gets along great with other dogs (he lives in a foster home with two other dogs and always defers to them) and he has never met a human he doesn't like. He's great out in public and can be spotted chilling like a gentleman out at TRD's happy hour events and restaurant patios. Zippy's foster family reports that Zippy takes treats easily from the hand and has pretty well figured out he must sit before the treat. He also has learned that he must sit to exit the house and wait to be called through the door. This guy is on the right track to being a perfect companion! Zippy is about 50 pounds at 6 months old (early October 2017) and we believe he will top out in the 70 to 80 pound range. He will love a family who will continue with his training and keep him active! If you would like to meet Zippy, 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
