adoptable dogs

1.5 Years Old - Mutt-i-Gree 


Amber is a soul dog looking for her soul person. More than anything, Amber craves affection and connection. She is that dog that will cuddle up with you on the bed, the couch or in the smallest of spaces. If you let her, she will be that dog that will be in your heart forever.

Amber is about a year old. She came to us from a rather desperate situation, having been housed outside in the hot sun in a dog run for most of her life. She was severely underweight and beginning to get heat sores and lose fur. Despite that, she has turned out to be pretty healthy, with clean 4DX, Valley Fever and fecal tests. In just a few weeks, she has gained a few pounds, her sores are gone and her fur is sleek and shiny.

We renamed her Amber (previously Hazel) because of her glorious amber-golden eyes. 

Amber walks nicely on the leash and understands “watch me,” “sit” and “gentle” commands. She is very food-oriented and quick to learn. She is good in the crate when you have to leave her for a while alone in the house. Like many rescue dogs who didn’t get socialized early, she is unpredictable when it comes to her response to other dogs. For that reason, we are training her to accept a muzzle and we recommend continued obedience training with a reputable trainer such as Complete Canine. We also recommend that she be the only dog in the household. 

That said, we can’t emphasize enough how lovable this dog is, how worth the effort she is, and how quickly she will capture your heart if given the chance.

1 Year Old - Collie Mix


Well, look no further than the bestest girl Lita!
She is an energetic girl looking for her forever home! 
Could it be you? 

Lita is always down to play no matter the time, is a pro in her kennel, is on the deans list for being housebroken and once she warms up to you, loves attention! 


Lita loves to snuggle, is so well behaved, great on leash and in public, but prefers to be the only furry resident.

She also does great with kids!

4 years old - Staffie/Akita Mix 


If you’re looking for a bff, let me tell you about my best girl, Lilly. Lilly, formerly known as Emmy, was saved from euthanasia at a Nogales shelter after being found in the desert with, what was believed to be her pup. She then spent way too many months with two foster moms before finding a home where she had a brother whom she absolutely adored, received training and learned to be more confident. 

Unfortunately, her home situation didn’t work out due to inner community conflicts and family health issues. So without missing a beat or any questions, she returned to the open arms of her rescue family and second foster. 

Since returning home, Lilly has continued to show that she’s the amazing girl we know she is. She currently resides with 9 foster dog siblings, ranging from 9lbs to 44lbs, and a teenage boy. She has attended several puppy play dates with larger male dogs and small children, behaving appropriately every time. She does seem to be “larger male dog selective” so should avoid dog parks and free range dog sitting/boarding situations.

Lilly is house broken and crate trained. She rides great in a car and loves to have her nose out the window. She can pull with a regular collar or harness, however walks like a dream with a Nose Lead. She is not food, treat or toy aggressive, is not showing resource guarding and is non destructive though does like to dig just a bit to find that cool dirt to lay in. 

I know what you’re thinking, this dog is the perfect dog! And I can assure you she is! She would never be leaving my side again, however she has some prey drive and can’t be with cats.

Kinda feel like you hit the jack pot with this one, don’t you? Come meet my meet my best girl! Trust me, you won’t be disappointed. Lilly is quite literally, practically the perfect dog. Come fall in love today.

2 years old - Great Dane Mix


Charlie is an emaciated boy who we saved from New Mexico shelter at only 40lb, dying from worms. He was treated and is now 80lbs!


Charlie is a doll. He hasn’t met a dog he doesn’t like, loves kids, but just does not like cats. 

Charlie came from the streets and it had been quite awhile since he had a roof over his head. He has adjusted to home life so well, and loves to follow you around the house. He is great in the crate, but in a new home, needs reassured that you are not going to leave him.

This boy is a gem, and gets overlooked and we aren't sure why! 

1 year old - Border Collie Mix


Bobo came to us off of the euthanasia list due to lack of space. We are so happy this boy was saved, because he is 30lbs of pure love and entertainment! 

Bobo is dog & Kid friendly, as well as crate trained. He LOVES playing, and would be a great adventure partner. 

Bobo wants to know if he and his stuffies would be welcome in your home forever?  


Penny Lane
1 years old - Great Dane Mix 

Penny Lane.jpg

Meet Penny!

Penny is a 1 year old Great Dane mix. She lives with dogs of all sizes, but doesn’t know her size and does better with dogs that are at least 40lbs. She is great with all people that she has met. Cats are unknown. 

Penny will need some basic obedience training but already knows “sit”, “stay” and “paw”. Penny is working on crate training and potty training and is getting the hang of it quickly. 

Penny would appreciate a family that is familiar with large breed dogs and is prepared to give her the care she needs.

5 years old - American Staffordshire Terrier Mix


Flo is in boarding, and we’d love to get her out. She used to love large females to play with, and her confidence is down a bit, so if we can get her into a very patient foster home with another medium or large dog, or one without other pups, we can get her built back up. 

No small animals, but another neutral dog could be ok in time. No other pets would be ideal. Flo is house and crate trained. She loves adventures; hiking, car rides, and snuggling for a movie night! 

She’s such a doll, and we do not put dogs in boarding. Boarding is emergency ONLY, so we need to get her out asap.

2 years old - Great Pyrenees Mix  


Snowflake is such a great dog! She walked into foster with confident, neutral dogs and got along with them all, along with 3 young kids - she's a total nanny dog. 

Snowflake is protective of her people, and needs. large yard to patrol with the Great Pyrenees in her. As long as someone gives her a lot of patience and understanding, she will soar as an ideal companion. 

Please fill out an application if you're interested! 

1 year old - Australian Koolie Mix 


Meet Sunflower or as I call her, Sunny.


If there was ever a dog that was more true to her name, I’d be surprised. Sunflower has a sweet and happy disposition, to everyone she meets. She gets along and lives with dogs as small as 3lbs and as big as a Great Dane. She has done well around kids as young as 5, and has generally loved every person she’s met. Sunflower has Merle Ocular Dysgenesis, which basically means her eyes are under developed and likely to continue to deteriorate. She has some vision now, but will likely go completely blind. This also means that her eyes need ongoing medical care and require daily medications. 

Sunflower would do well in almost any home, but would strongly prefer another confident dog in the house to help guide her. Sunflower truly blossoms in the company of other dog companions.

If we do not have a dog in our care that fits your lifestyle, please visit the website of these rescue organizations that we highly recommend!
