Fun and flamboyant Bernadette (Bernie for short) is a whirlwind of activity and affection. Bernie came to TRD from the Humane Society of Imperial County, and we believe that she is the sister of TRD alum Penny. She is a funny cattle dog mix with a snub nose that seems very Boston terrier-like. Bernie currently lives with other dogs and a cat. She loves to romp with her canine brothers. While she likes to chase the cat a little, she responds well to corrections. Bernie is good with children, but given her energy and her puppy-like exuberance, we recommend she goes to a family with older children. Bernie is active and will need a family who understands her need for activity and stimulation. Experience with the cattle dog breed would be a plus. Bernie is extremely smart and will respond well to training. She is also extremely affectionate and will fill her forever family's days with laughter, love, and a whole lotta action! Bernie is about 11 months old as of February 2016 and weighs in at about 25 pounds. She may gain a little more before she is fully grown, but not too much. If you are looking for a fun little bundle of joy and activity, look no further than Bernie! To meet Bernie, 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 Ella, who came to TRD from Hope for Paws in LA. Hope for Paws rescued Ella off of the mean streets of LA and wanted Ella to have the benefit of a loving and stable foster life while she waits patiently waits for her forever family. TRD was happy to oblige for a sweet and loving girl with such a rough start. At home with her fosters, Ella is a complete love bug. If you are looking for a low-key snuggler, look no further--Ella is your girl. Her foster family reports that she spends plenty of time taking naps on the couch "in the most hilarious positions". While she is a champion snuggler and napper, there is nothing Ella loves more than to play with squeaky toys and go for a good walk. She gets very excited when she sees the leash come out! She is good on the leash and loves to explore the nooks and crannies of her neighborhood. She is a great combination of calm in the home and energetic when she's out and about. Because of her rough start, Ella does have trouble trusting new dogs, though she has been fully integrated in her foster family's "dog pack." With some gentle but firm leadership from her people, Ella's fear can be managed, and over time, with consistency and patience, we expect that Ella can become confident and more self-assured with other dogs. Ella is crate trained and house trained, and has already picked up on sit, come, and name recall. At a year and half old as of October 2015, Ella is at a great age to start her life with her forever family. And at 12 pounds full grown, Ella is a perfect size for almost any living situation. With her deep bark, muscular frame, and bowed-out front legs, we believe Ella is a chihuahua/french bulldog mix. She is so muscular, her foster family affectionately calls her "Rhonda Rousey." If you are interested in meeting Ella, please fill out an adoption application and an adoption coordinator will be in touch to schedule a meet and greet. show less

Gigi is a sweet and silly doxie-beagle mix who came to TRD from Humane Society of Imperial County (HSOIC). She came to that shelter as a stray, very pregnant, and had her 2 puppies Alicia and Lianne within days of being taken in at HSOIC. HSOIC asked TRD to take Gigi and her 2 puppies, and how could we refuse? Gigi is a delightful little girl. She has been a very good momma to her puppies and now deserves a life of being loved and cared for herself. Gigi loves a good walk and will be happy to accompany her new forever people on any adventure. She also loves a good wrestle romp with her canine foster siblings. Gigi has a wonderful playful side and always has a little twinkle in her eye. This funny girl will fetch anything! And she loves toys, especially toys she can chew on! Gigi is about 12 pounds, which makes her spunk and sportiness even more entertaining. And when it's time to wind down, Gigi is an expert snuggler. She is content to be by her person's side, or even better, in her person's lap! She really is a gem, and at 1 year old as of January 2016, she has a lifetime of love and fun to share. If you are interested in meeting Gigi, 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

Pint-sized Snoopy was found in a box by a dumpster in San Diego. She was under 8 weeks old and already had a bad case of mange. A Good Samaritan scooped her up and asked TRD if we would take her in. Of course we couldn't say no, and Snoopy became a TRD dog. Two months later, Snoopy is a healthy, happy handful of a puppy who loves playing with her foster brother lab. She also loves playing with and chasing her feline foster siblings. Snoopy gets along great with everyone, and loves all people. She is good with kids. She is small so respectful children would be a must for Snoopy's forever family. When we first rescued Snoopy she was about 2.5 pounds. At about 3 and a half months old as of mid December 2015, Snoopy is up to a whopping 5 pounds. We believe that she will be about 10 pounds when she is full grown. In the meantime, Snoopy makes up for her small stature with her big, beautiful personality. She is fun and spunky, but is also a champion snuggle bug and will make a great lap dog. Snoopy is already crate trained and has just about mastered her potty training. She is smart and knows "come". She is excited and ready to learn more basic training. Are you looking for a big dose of fun in a little package? Fill out an application on TRD's website to meet Snoopy! show less

Sweet and snuggly Casey is a special dog looking for a special family. When Casey came to TRD, the femur of her back left leg was shattered, and our vets recommended amputation as the best course of action. After her surgery, Casey bounced back and is living a happy and pain-free life. Casey is deaf, which is not uncommon with white dogs. She will need some special training and a little extra patience to figure out how to navigate through life with her new family. But, having a deaf dog has it's benefits too. Deaf dogs do not bark at noises that simulate most dogs, like the mailman, or doorbells. Deaf dogs are not afraid of fireworks, thunder or the vaccum cleaner. It's 100% worth it though, as Casey is about as loving as sweet as they come. Casey is extremely affectionate and loves meeting new people. Casey has even mastered a few hand signals. And, she loves off leash dog parks. She runs so fast, it's hard to notice she is missing a leg. Casey is a great size at about 28 pounds. She is small enough not to get in the way, and big enough to hold her own in most situations. She loves meeting other dogs and is a fun friend to take to the dog park. At two years young, Casey is ready to share a long life with her forever family. If you would like to meet Casey, 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
