Introducing Artemis, aka Artie, named after the ancient Greek goddess of wilderness and daughter of Zeus. TRD’s Artemis may not be a real goddess, but nevertheless she is a total diva who will definitely enchant you with her cuteness matched with a healthy dose of sass. Artie is a petite sized Brussels Griffon mix, and at two years old, she is full grown at 7 pounds. According to her foster mom, Artie has a sweet demeanor. She loves to cuddle and play with her foster parents and siblings as well as other dogs and cats in the home. She is sometimes shy and apprehensive when she meets new people but give her a few minutes and Artie is ready to be your BFF. Artie does not have a special favorite toy--because basically every toy is Artie’s favorite toy! Artie is also a smart pup and learns new tricks very quickly. For her forever family, she is surely going to be a fun dog to train. She is almost house trained and she already knows a few commands like Name Recall. Her foster family is working on her potty training and Artie has already shown impressive progress. Artie has a penchant to chew on things other than her toys, but she is learning how chewing is an undesirable habit. Artie also loves to go on leashed walks around her neighborhood. On her first walk with her foster mom, it was obvious that she had never been on a leash before. However, with her smarts and people pleasing personality, she has come a long way in just a few weeks. She now walks normally and loves her walks more than ever. Potential adopters Beware!! Artemis is sure to melt your heart with her big soulful eyes. Once you meet this petite doggo goddess, there will be no looking back and the adoption will be an inevitable consequence. If you would like to meet Artie, 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

Adorable cattle dog puppy Rusty came to TRD from the Humane Society of Imperial County. This sweet and sensitive guy is just 12 weeks old as of mid-September 2017. Rusty's foster family reports that he is an easy dog to care for, and loves to be near his people. According to his fosters, he has a spike of energy in the morning and will usually just play by himself with his toys until he gets tired, and then he will settle down for nap time. Rusty is very smart and has already picked up a few basic commands, including sit, come, down, and off. Rusty will thrive and excel with more basic training with his new family. Rusty is also crate trained and appears to understand that going potty outside is the right thing to do. When Rusty first came to TRD, he wasn't sure about playing with other dogs, but he seems to be getting the hang of that, and has ventured out to the dog park a few times with his foster family. His foster family also reports that he can be shy with new people and will take a little while to warm up, especially towards men, but he's improving with that all the time. Once he's comfortable with someone, it's all love and loyalty from this guy. If you would like to add a smart, loving, and loyal pup to your pack, 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

Presenting Petey, a young pup who found his spot on TRD's freedom ride from the Imperial County! Petey appears to be part beagle, part pug, and part chihuahua, with the body of a some medium sized terrier, which makes him the ultimate American Mutt. He is about 1-2 years old and is full grown at a healthy 25 lbs of weight. Petey is a very friendly and lovable companion. He loves to snuggle and play with toys by himself as well as with people and other dogs. His favorite toys are stuffed and chew-toys. In a short time in his foster home, he has become affectionate with his foster parents, canine siblings, and kids in the home. Petey is extremely smart and he has responded well to training in his foster home. He already knows a few commands like Come and Name Recall. He is also great on a leash--he listens to his humans' cues and does not pull on the leash. Petey is crate trained--he sleeps in his crate at night. He is almost house trained, although he occassionally marks around the home. (His foster parents are working on correcting this behavior. Also, each adoption with TRD comes a complementary session with our dog trainer!) Petey is a happy snuggle bug who could be a great addition to any family (he is great with adults, kids, and dogs) and with his not-too-petite yet not-too-big size, he would be perfect in any living situation. If you would like to meet Petey, 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 Maple! Maple was one of 100 dogs brought to San Diego by Wings of Rescue to help clear shelters in Houston and Louisiana to make room for local dogs displaced by hurricane Harvey. This hound mix is a sweet natured, high energy girl. At only 6 months and 40 lbs, she still has quite a bit of growing to do and will likely become an energetic 50-70lb ball of playfulness in no time. Currently, Maple is living with another dog and some human kids. She keeps herself very busy playing with all of them, all of the time. Maple is quite social and has done well with most dogs she’s met thus far. She does require a slow, proper introduction with certain dogs as her size and energy can be overwhelming for some dogs. Once a controlled introduction takes place, Maple is generally submissive but also a very energetic, playful wrestler. Maple is currently learning to walk on leash properly and coming along nicely with potty training. She is crate trained and responds very well to positive reinforcement with treats and praise. She is a smart girl, very food motivated and eager to please. Maple also has a sensitive side; she can become scared with sudden loud sounds or movements and is very in tune with her human’s reactions and emotions. Calm, gentle leadership keeps this girl confident, happy, and eager to learn. As a larger, lanky puppy she is a real goofball too; flopping around while playing and plopping herself on you for close cuddles. Her adorable hound eyes will melt your heart. Maple would love a home with very active people, perhaps a running or hiking partner. She would do great as a second dog or an only dog with committed owners to see she gets her high energy needs met. Maple would thrive in puppy classes and/or professional training as well, as exercising her mind is as important as her body. She will mature into an amazing dog with proper training, adequate exercise and attentive, motivated owners. With her fun and sweet personality, gorgeous face, athletic build and quintessential puppy dog eyes, we have no doubt her perfect humans will come along and fall in love with her instantly.

Meet Naima, a beautiful boxer pup who came to TRD from the Humane Society of Imperial County. Naima is a typical boxer in many ways: she is energetic, athletic, loyal, and fun. Naima gets a lot of exercise with her foster family and will need a family who will keep her active and moving. As long as she gets enough activity, she is an easy girl to have around. Naima currently lives with two other big dogs and gets along great with them. She seems to be a little over excited to meet small dogs, so careful introductions to diminutive canine friends will be a must for Naima. She also gets excited when she sees other dogs on leash, and will need a little help in understanding how to greet other dogs on leash. For the most part though, Naima has great leash manners and these little quirks can be easily managed with consistent training. Naima is about 7 months old as of September 2017 and is the perfect age to do some basic training with her new family. Naima hasn't met a human she doesn't like and she seems to be especially great with children. She is very responsive to being called and enjoys interacting with her humans. Training her will be easy and fun. Naima is about 40 pounds and will probably put on a few more before she is full grown. If you are interested in meeting Naima, 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 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. Dionne 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, Dionne and her brother Elton are usually the last 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. Dionne'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. Dionne 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 (definitely prettier than Cher) so her adoption should be easy-peasy! As if?? If you would like to meet Dionne, 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

Although natural disasters can be devastating, there’s a silver lining to those rain clouds because we were fortunate enough to help rescue this affectionate puppy from Hurricane Harvey.

Have you ever wanted to adopt a soft cuddly lamb with the sweet and affectionate personality of a dog? If your answer is yes, TRD's latest recruit Mac from the Imperial County Shelter is the guy you need. Mac is a 1 year old white poodle, with a soft curly coat (like a lamb). He is about 14 lbs and at his age he is not expected to grow any more. Mac is a very happy and exuberant dog. He is extremely smart, sometimes too smart for his own good. He is compatible with cats and dogs. He enjoys playing in his foster's yard with other dogs and his humans. If no one is available, Mac is happy playing by himself as well. Stuffed toys and balls are his favorite toys. He is a quick learner and he is already picked up some basic commands like Sit, Down, and Name Recall in his foster home. Mac is house and crate trained. He sleeps in a crate by himself at night and during the day when his foster mom is at work. On the leash, Mac is a natural. He goes on walks twice a day and is generally happy and well-mannered while greeting people and dogs he meets. Mac still has a few habits he probably picked in his time before he was rescued. He occassionally has accidents in the home and sometimes he isn't very happy about being left home alone. His foster mom is working on his training and his forever family will be expected to continue the training. With these few habits out of the way, Mac will be nothing short of a happy, secure, and well-trained buddy. His charming and smart personality will woo you into making him a part of your family forever. If you would like to meet Mac, 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

What could be more adorable than a litter of American Bully mix puppies? Well, a litter of puppies with Lion King themed names. Brothers Hakuna, Matata, and Scar along with their sisters Nala and Serabi came to TRD in August 2017 from an accidental litter - their mother a white german shepherd, and father is an American Bully. At 8 weeks of age, Hakuna is already 14 lbs. We expect him to be in the 50-60 pound range full grown. He has a beautiful and chocolate brown coat, which makes him stand out from his brothers. According to his foster mom, Hakuna is a energetic pup with the sweetest disposition. Like most young Bullies, Hakuna is very playful and spends his days alternating between naps and romps with his brothers in his foster's backyard. His favorite toys are a Kong and a rope toy. Hakuna is a smart little pup--within less than 2 weeks in his new home, he has mastered name recall. His foster mom is working on crate and house training (he is learning to sleep in a crate at night), but given his young age it will take a few more weeks for him to perfect these skills. Hakuna and his brothers are also expert chewers (shoes are their favorite). The foster family is working on phasing them out of his habit. Hakuna loves his treats and can be taught new commands easily with some treats for positive reinforcement. Hakuna will be a perfect fit for a family looking to adopt a young pup and is willing to work on his house/potty training, and leash walking in return for unlimited and unwavering puppy love and loyalty. If you would like to meet Hakuna, please fill our an adoption application and an adoption coordinator will be in touch to schedule a meet and greet. show less

Adorable Gracie is one of TRD's latest recruits who came from the Imperial County Shelter in July 2017. She is a loving and sweet poodle mix and at about a year old, she is full-grown at a petite 13 pounds, which makes her an ideal companion for any living situation. Gracie has been described as fur ball of energy by her foster mom and will thrive in a home where she gets to express her energy. Given her rough life so far, Gracie has not had much training yet and is still learning how to be a well-behaved dog. She is almost crate trained (she sleeps in a crate by herself at night) and is working on her house training. She can be easily over-excited, especially when meeting new people. She is learning better ways to greet people and her forever family will want to continue this training. (Every adoption with TRD comes with a complimentary training session with our resident trainer!) Gracie occasionally begs for attention from her humans and, like most doggos, she loves getting cuddles and belly rubs from them. Overall Gracie is total people person and according to her foster mom, she would prefer if you held her and let her lay in your lap all day long. Gracie is a smart dog and in just a few short weeks in her new home she has picked up a few basic commands and is working on learning more. She has also possibly never been on a leash before and is learning leash walking seemingly for the first time. Gracie is good with other dogs in her foster home but needs slow introductions when meeting new dogs. With proper training and patience, Gracie can go a long way from her rough start. Gracie has also been determined as not cat-friendly, so she is a better fit in a family without any cats at home. Gracie would be perfect fit for a family looking for an petite, energetic dog and a forever family that can provide an outlet for her zoomies and continue her training. If you would like to meet Gracie, 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
