  • UKI

    September 12, 2019 3:16 pm

    Uki was born in the Ukraine and shipped to Southern CA to a customer who ended up turning him into a kill shelter. Yes, they even turned in his puppy passport and pedigree certificates.

    Uki will be one year old this month. He is now neutered (👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽), up to date on vaccines, HW negative, friendly with other dogs and passed his shelter temperament test. He weighs 50 lbs. but needs to gain a few as his body is quite thin…most of that weight is in his big, beautiful head.

    We are thrilled to announce our Uki has found his forever home! Third time’s the charm for this beauty. Uki and his enormous, adorable, fat squishy head will be living in Southern CA with two Pei pals; one of which was adopted from us approximately 10 years ago.

  • Ruthie

    September 11, 2019 5:12 am

    Ruthie came to us from a Southern CA shelter where pretty much everything the shelter had listed about her was wrong. She’s an older girl, she’s visually impaired and had a non-cancerous mass on her uterus, but, with that being said, we are so happy we rescued her because she’s an absolute sweetheart who loves love.

    We are SO excited to announce our little Ruthie has left the building!!! She’s going home to enjoy the good life with James (who she absolutely adores). Nothing but tail wags and smiles all around.  Many thanks to James for coming to pick up this little bundle of joy

  • Homer

    August 4, 2019 1:31 pm

    Everyone say hello to Homer! How could we say no to that face and side-eye action? Homer is a Pei mix, approx 7-8 months old and weighing in at 40 lbs. He is a dog and people friendly pup who pretty much loves everyone. We do not have info on how he is with cats (yet).

    Homer is now with us and a real special guy!!    He will need to be neutered and evaluated by our vet but wanted to introduce him to you. In the meantime he is learning the leash, he is very smart.

    Homer is heading home with Sommer to Colorado.  Happy life to both!!

  • Bingo

    July 10, 2019 4:51 am

    We received a call about an owner surrendered dog who was hit by a car and needed immediate surgery. With little time to make a decision, we said yes. We’ve named him Bingo because it’s his lucky day.

    Orthopedic surgery done, all other normal vetting addressed, $2,000 later and Bingo is safe. Bingo is approximately 8 months old and one of the nicest dogs our vet has treated.

    Bingo is being adopted by previous adopters living in Southern CA! He’s been in our board and train program with our amazing Cari (yes, we say she’s OURS ❤️) and has truly blossomed into the perfect gentleman!

    Happy life, doll face!

  • Roscoe

    July 6, 2019 2:18 pm

    We’re beginning to see Roscoe’s beauty shine. My what a difference a medicated bath, good food and a little TLC make. His vet appointment for the big stuff is complete – neuter, bilateral entropian, wound checks, all vaccines, etc.

    Roscoe is an absolute sweetheart –  Kissy, friendly, just all around sweet. Roscoe is a blue brush coat, is just over 2 years old and approx 40-45 lbs. He appears to be dog friendly as well.  He previously lived with another male Pei.

    Roscoe is updating his photo (July 4th) in hopes you might fall in love with him.

    We are thrilled to announce Roscoe has been adopted! He will enjoy life in beautiful San Diego with our previous adopter and volunteer, Michelle.

    April 16, 2019 2:31 pm

    Maple Bar – WHY IS THIS DOG STILL HERE.  Maple is a young (1-2 years old), gorgeous (stitches now out), friendly, a kissing machine, etc.  He is the definition of perfection.  This boy even kisses the vet and vet techs, he kisses us daily, he’s happy, he’s loving, he’s just incredible.  Why isn’t Maple in a home?

  • Lauren Bacall

    February 11, 2019 3:44 pm

    Lauren Bacall is a tiny little one year old girl weighing in at 35 lbs! She’s like one of those sweet, miniature candies you give away on Halloween! Lauren’s ideal situation would be one with no other dogs (she wants to be your one and only), and definitely no cats.  Her eyes were a mess (entropion and cherry eyes) when she first arrived but have since been repaired and she’s healed beautifully. Lauren has been adopted and will call Southern California her home.  Happy life sweet girl.

We love you!

Luther we will miss your silliness and morning shenanigans but know you’ll be living the good life with your new family.  Happy life, sweet boy!

  • Ridley

    October 14, 2018 7:59 pm

    We are THRILLED to announce our resident bear cub, Ridley, has found a loving, forever home! We will never understand why this guy stayed in rescue so long but sometimes, the long wait is worth it. Ridley now resides in Southern CA with his family and former CSPR Pei, Peggy, and is looking forward to new adventures. Ridley’s family have been adopting from us for almost 15 years!!

    CSPR PSA: we are sharing Ruby’s update to not only celebrate her beautiful new life but to remind everyone that the dogs you see in rescue, in a kennel, may not show well. It truly takes a home environment for dogs to blossom and come out of their shell.

    Ruby is a prime example of a hidden gem. She was overlooked for a year (maybe longer?) as she was afraid and didn’t show well when we had visitors. Look at her now – a happy ball of fluff who also likes to snuggle with the resident cat – something we never expected!

    The moral of the story is, give our dogs a chance. Don’t judge based on appearance, open your hearts to ones that may look less than perfect, may appear to be a mix, may appear shy, etc. You won’t regret it 💕


  • Ruby

    October 14, 2018 7:55 pm

    Our hearts are full – our sweet Ruby has finally found her forever home and will be residing in Elk Grove! Ruby had been here with us for quite sometime and was waiting for the perfect, patient family to come along and sweep her off her feet. We couldn’t be happier today – this was a very special adoption with a wonderful connection between Ruby and her new family. Happy life, Ruby. We love you 💕

  • Humphrey Bogart

  • Wyatt

    WYATT HAS BEEN ADOPTED! This plush boy waited and waited and waited until the PERFECT family came along. He will reside in the Bay Area with two little boys and go for daily runs with his mom.

  • Brillo

    September 7, 2018 11:37 pm

    We are so happy to announce that our gorgeous Brillo has been adopted! This lucky boy stole quite a few hearts and patiently waited for the perfect home to come along. We don’t see flowered Pei in rescue very often and Brillo’s inner beauty matched his exterior.

    Happy life, Brillo!
