Meet Betty White, and adorable poodle mix who has as much cuteness and personality as her namesake. Betty was posted on a Facebook page as a "give-away". Betty had been with a family whose toddler wasn't being nice to her. A fellow rescuer spotted her and stepped in to save Betty from this unfortunate situation. Betty is fun and young at heart, and at approximately 7 years old as of February 2017, she still has a ton of life and love to share with her new forever family. Betty is a fun, smart little dog who knows several commands, including sit, come, shake, high-five, and roll over. Betty loves a good walk, and also loves playing with her canine foster siblings. She also gets along great with the felines and the children in the household. According to her foster mom, Betty is is always happy and smiling. She likes to cuddle, and will wiggle in underneath your arm if she feels you could pay more attention to her. Even though she is a little older than her foster brothers and sisters she has the most energy of all, and would do well with a family that is somewhat active. Betty is house trained and crate trained. She weighs in at around 16 pounds, which is a great size for most living situations. If you are interested in meeting Betty White, 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

Lovable Luna came to TRD from the Chula Vista Animal Care Facility. She had been abandoned there as a puppy of about 6 weeks. CHACF wanted to make sure she was properly taken care of and had her best shot at a great home so reached out to the local rescue community. One look at her silly ears and her unique coat, and we knew she was one of ours! Luna has been assessed by our vets at San Carlos Animal Hospital and has a clean bill of health. Luna is about 9 weeks old as of the end of January 2017, and has already shown that she is resilient and smart. As she grows into her puppy paws, she is emerging as active and energetic. Her foster mom also reports that she is sweet. loving, and playful. Luna has started socializing with dogs and people and seems to get along with everyone. (She hasn't met a cat yet!) She has the look of a shiba inu and the coloring of a German shepherd dog. If that is her mix, we predict (just a guess!) that she will be somewhere in the 40-60 pound range full grown. The fun part of adopting a rescue puppy is that you just never know! She is working on her house training and crate training. If you'd like to add this adorable girl to your pack, 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

Lucky

Male Adult Shih Tzu Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Mixed (mixed) Small

Lucky's story does not have the most fortunate start, but we are going to make sure he lives up to his name with his new forever family! Lucky was hit by a car in the LA area. A good Samaritan brought him to a local pet ER, and from there we were contacted to see if we could care for and place Lucky. One look at this little cutie and of course the answer was yes! Thankfully, other than being shook up, Lucky did not suffer any injuries. When we first took Lucky in, it became evident that he had been an outside dog. His fur was matted, he had fleas, he didn't know how to behave in a house, and he was unsure of new people. His foster family has been working diligently to socialize him with their pack (both people and dogs.) It takes Lucky a day or two to trust new people, but he quickly becomes a faithful companion. His foster family reports that once he gets comfortable, he wants to be a lap dog. Lucky LOVES food, and begs for it any chance he can. Lucky does well with other dogs, although he does not yet understand how to play with other dogs, or dog toys. This cute little guy weighs in at about 12 pounds and we estimate that he is about 2 years old. If you would like to give Lucky the happy ending he deserves, 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 an awesome wingman? Meet Maverick! Maverick is a playful little corgi-spaniel mix who came to TRD from the Humane Society of Imperial County. This little bundle of fun is ready for any adventure. He is friendly with new people and likes to meet new dogs. He is also toy oriented, and can entertain himself chewing on bones or playing with his toys. He really loves interactive play with his people though. He loves a good game of tug and especially loves to play keep away. Maverick has been known to get the "zoomies" when he gets excited! He definitely has some serious joie de vivre! When it's time to settle down, Maverick knows how to unwind. He's relaxed at home, and has no problem chilling out while his people do their thing. He can also be quite the cuddle bug, and enjoys a good snuggle with his human pals. According to his foster family, Maverick loves to give kisses and receive belly rubs. Maverick will be a perfect addition to an active and loving family. Maverick is approximately one year old as of January 2016, and weighs in at around 20 pounds. Maverick is house trained and crate trained, and he is good with kids, cats, and other dogs. He would love to continue his basic training with his new family. If you would like to meet Maverick, please fill out an adoption application on TRD's website and an adoption coordinator will be in touch to schedule a meet and greet. show less

Sweet Mousey is a great example of amazing, resilient puppy spirit. Mousey was dumped in a box on the doorstep of one of our fellow rescuers. She had a grossly infected eye and clearly had been neglected. Mousey was emaciated and had some issues with her skin. Our rescuer friend rushed Mousey to her local vet, and it was determined that the infected eye needed to be removed. With Mousey around 2 pounds, 4 months old (as of January 2016), and malnourished, surgery was a risky proposition for this pint-sized sweetie. Thankfully Mousey pulled through the surgery, and we are happy to report that she has made a full recovery. Mousey has bounced back, and has proven to be the happiest puppy you'd ever want to meet. Mousey's foster mom reports that she is an excellent cuddler. Mousey also loves romping around in the yard with her canine foster siblings, then taking a break to do a little sunbathing. Mousey enjoys car rides and is ready to be a go-anywhere kind of girl. Mousey's foster mom also reports that she is as quiet as a mouse, and the only time she makes a fuss is when she needs to go out to go potty. Mousey is a really smart little girl and she will be fun and easy to train. We think she will stay pretty petite, maybe growing into the 6 to 10 pound range as an adult. If you would like to give Mousey the happy ending she deserves, please fill out an application on the TRD website and an adoption coordinator will be in touch to schedule a meet-up! show less

Meet Tiny, a totally adorable Shih Tzu-chihuahua mix looking for her forever family. What Tiny lacks in stature she makes up for with her huge personality. Tiny loves to play with other puppies her size. She also enjoys running around in the yard and then settling down for a little sunbathing. When outside time is done, Tiny loves to snuggle with her human friends, and has been known to fall asleep on her people's chests or necks. Her cuddling style is adorable and irresistible. Tiny was born on 8/2/2016, and at 5 months old, Tiny weighs a micro 3 lbs. We think she may top out at around 7 pounds. She will be a very small adult dog! Adopters will need to take her diminutive size into consideration when deciding whether Tiny is the right canine companion for them. Tiny is also a little fearful of this great big world and does much better when she's in the companionship of a confident dog. She currently does best when she's with her buddy BamBam (also available for adoption from TRD). We would like to place Tiny with a family that either would adopt Tiny and BamBam together or has an existing canine family member who would boost Tiny's confidence. Tiny is still working on potty training, basic commands, and recall. Given her size and age, Tiny is kept in a puppy playpen instead of a crate. If you would like to meet Tiny, 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

Sweet Daisy, a basset hound mix, came to TRD from the Humane Society of Imperial County as an owner surrender. She was a 24/7 yard dog and found herself (probably bored) continually escaping. The family decided they no longer wanted to pay the impound fees and left her at the shelter. Shortly after Daisy was placed her foster home, we discovered she had heartworm disease! We would like to think she kept escaping knowing she could find the love and care she deserved and needed. Daisy was put on crate rest and spent about 4 months undergoing intense treatments which unfortunately included strict rest for the entire time. Daisy now has a clean bill of health and is ready to find her perfect forever home. Daisy loves getting belly rubs and being close to her humans. At approximately 3-4 years old Daisy has a medium energy level and loves a good run at Fiesta Island- she is low and fast! She's a compact 30 lbs of love. We are recommending a house without cats for Daisy but would love to see her in a house with a canine companion. Daisy was never provided the opportunity to socialize with her fellow canines (besides the one she lived with in the backyard all her life) so she can be reserved when meeting new dogs and will need someone willing to be patient with her to help continue to build her confidence and social skills. There are plenty of dogs Daisy has met and loved and she'll run, play and chase with the best of them! Daisy currently lives with another dog and two kids in her foster home and really enjoys their active lifestyle. She's always ready for a walk, car ride or any outing; wanting to be a full member of the family now. Daisy's foster family says she's a perfect house dog when her people are out and is fully potty trained. If you would like to make Daisy a part of your family, please fill out an application to meet her! http://therescueddog.org/2015/dog-adoption-application/ Adult, Female, Medium show less

Giselle was named for her graceful gait and her pretty profile. Giselle is a spritely, sporty girl who will be a lot of fun for an active and loving family. This beauty came to The Rescued Dog from the Humane Society of Imperial County. Giselle is very loving and loyal with people, but she seems to be a little inexperienced in the ways of the world. She will need a confident human pack leader and would benefit greatly from an equally confident canine sibling. Giselle is very social and smart, and would make a great second (or third, or fourth) dog. She gets along great with other dogs and is also very affectionate with people, including children, once she gets to know them. Giselle is just now learning what a leash is, and how to walk properly with her pack. Giselle is a fast learner and seems to be catching on quickly to that concept, as well as basic commands. She will be fun to train! At 1 year old as of December 2016, Giselle is full grown at around 35 pounds. She is the perfect size for most living situations. Giselle is house trained and crate trained, and ready to start a new life with her forever family. If you are interested in meeting Giselle, 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
