Happy Ends

We are very proud of our hundreds of successful adoptions, and the many happy families that have returned to adopt from us again, and again, over the years.

Here are photos of some of our adopted kids. You can search by dog or family name.


Lucy has been adopted by Yael and Dan and is living in Southern CA.

My name is Lucy, and I came into this rescue with my companion, Ethel. Sadly, Ethel has gone to the Rainbow Bridge after being diagnosed with inoperable liver cancer. I miss her, but I know she is in a better place now. I am not very photogenic, so the photo really does not do me justice. I am a blue brushcoat, and I like other dogs. I am very outgoing and friendly, and I like lots of attention. My vet here thinks I am about four years young. Iím running out of things to say about myself-I am a girl of few words-and wish I could say my photo speaks louder than words, but in my case the photo doesnít say nearly enough about me. I guess youíll just have to meet me in person. You wonít be disappointed!


Gus has found a new home in Chicago with Terri.

OK, Ok, I know this is a silly picture, but for some reason you humans find humor in these sorts of things. My name is Gus, and I think I will try and get my foster parents to send a more realistic photo of me along with this one. I'm really a handsome guy, but I can be silly too. I am a cream dilute horsecoat boy with a rather complicated story which somehow includes Mexico. I'm not sure if that means I am originally from there, passed through there or was rescued from there. I do know I am no longer there! I was rescued by a group who works primarily with dogs in Mexico, but my story also includes Riverside. We are not going to go there, because I know even less about my involvement there. Anyway, this group saved me but had very little knowledge about my breed and reached out to my foster parents for help. It was agreed that I would come to Redding, but before I left my first rescuers did get me much needed eye surgery, and I want to thank them for that. When I got to Redding, my skin was looking a little "rough", but I'm looking good now! More than anything, I just want someone to pay attention to me-in my previous life I didn't get much of that. I would love for you to meet me so you can see for yourself just how good looking I am. You know, I really don't care what country, state, or county I live in as long as someone can give me the love and care I so long for and deserve. I'll be waiting to hear from you.

Happily Adopted

I am happy to report that I am still in this world-that's why I'm smiling! My name is Daisy, and I was dropped off at a shelter in Merced, CA, to be put down because I had an ear infection. It was offered to the person who left me there that the folks at the shelter would provide some meds if they would take me back home while the shelter staff looked for a safe place for me to go. The answer was "NO" without hesitation, and I was left to die. It was then that the shelter contacted this rescue to see if they could help me, and the rest, as they say, is history. I am a little timid when I first meet new people, but who can blame me after what I've been through. Once you gain my trust, I will be a loyal and devoted companion. My foster parents think the ear story was just used to justify leaving me behind, because they say my ears are not a problem. I am a beautiful apricot dilute brushcoat girl with a mellow temperament. I've heard it said that the eyes are the windows to the soul. What do you see in mine?
