Marshall entered our program when his owner fell seriously ill and required hospitalization (she’ll be unable to care for herself if/when she’s discharged and she does not have a network of dog-savvy friends and family). Marshall is a laidback guy who is about 7 years old. He was raised with 3 Shih Tzus and a German Shepherd without any issues. He can be a bit reserved when he first meets you but he’ll be your best buddy within 20-30 minutes. Does anyone have a sofa that Marshall can share with you? He is crate, leash, house and sofa trained. This sweet guy is about 7 years old; and he weighs in at 40lbs.
Margie is a delightful socialite who loves dogs of all sizes (she counts a trio of doxies as her best friends) and doesn’t seem to mind cats (at the shelter, she sniffed the cats in the Cat Room and moved on to the people there). She is mellow and gentle enough to be around younger children without any issues. This little muffin isn’t a runner nor hiker; but she would gladly take marathon naps on your sofa. Margie is about 2 years old…she weighs in at about 45lbs. Does anyone have a lonely couch that needs an occupant? If anyone has room for an affectionate gal, our application can be found here: http://
Little Lena. We rescued 2 year old Lena from the shelter along with her two young pups. Her puppy Oona found a loving home, but her other pup didn’t make it. Lena was underweight, neglected, and fearful of everything. She has come a long way with the help of her amazing foster family. She would love a forever family to give her time and patience to finish healing mentally and give her the love she deserves! She currently lives with kids (including toddlers) and does great with them. She is very mellow, except for a good daily hucklebutt, and has the sweetest soul. She would prefer to be an only fur child. This funny 30lb girl enjoys sleeping in the most uncomfortable places, such as sock drawers, toy boxes, and cleared book shelves. She could use some confidence on a leash, she is house trained, and wonderful in her crate. Here is a little video of her happy dance: https://youtu.be/
Sasha is such a pretty girl. She is about 2 years old; and she still has a lot of puppy energy. Sasha has been playing well with Big Red so it’s safe to say she is dog friendly. She is a busy girl but can’t resist some good lovin’ once she settles. We would love to see her in an active foster or forever home! Sasha is crate trained and will likely need a refresher in crate and house training.
Alright… now this young guy is CUTE! Juan is so super easy, very laid back. Walks great on a leash. Kinda just goes with the flow. The shelter staff said he was scared of his own shadow, but we didn’t see anything too concerning. He did cower when we picked up a bag of treats too quickly. When feels like he’s not getting enough attention, he likes to nip on your hands while on his back. Juan is good with medium/large dogs but might be too interested in the little ones. He is crate trained and may need a refresher on house training.

When the South Los Angeles shelter called us about a 4mo girl running the streets with severe mange, we just had to help her! Maggie has been lovingly fostered by Peggy Reynolds, and is now almost completely recovered after 4 months of TLC. Maggie has been spayed; and she is now ready for a few foster/forever home! This little muffin is now about 8 months old and weighs about 33lbs. She is extremely people-focused and loves to snuggle. The dogs in her foster home are extra exuberant or cranky so she has been a bit intimated by them. Her ideal home is a Bull Terrier experienced one where she is the only pet so that focus on socialization and structure (a bit of food aggression surfaces once in a blue moon but she is easily corrected)…but a home with a super submissive and gentle male might work. Maggie is crate and house trained but will need some work on a leash. If your information is not on file, please complete our application so that we can get to know you better:http://
Ruger is a fun loving, energetic, deaf 53lb guy who is so happy about Life. He is 10 months old (born 9-15-14); and he is an affable guy who is happy to play by himself or with other dogs. Ruger learns very quickly and is very food motivated (he knows “no”, “look”, “yes”, “stop”, “sit”, “lie down” and “shake”). He is also a master counter and table surfer so that is in the process of being curbed. Ruger is tall and lean – – perfect for hikes, runs and even performance sports such as agility. This guy is simply delightful…he is great with all genders and ages (he’s is gentle with younger children as to not knock them over). Ruger is not a fan of the kitties. If your information is not on file, please complete our application (http://www.bullterrierrescue.org/?page_id=572). If you would like more information about this great little guy, please feel free to contact his foster dad, Bo, at Seeger7@gmail.com.
Welcome to Wally World!!! Wally loves life and will take the time to find the joy in discovering things during walks. He is very dog-social and has been great with children. We placed Wally earlier this year but he recently got into a scuffle with a male Bulldog when they were left alone unsupervised. Wally redirected for a second at a party trying to break up the scuffle but there was not a bite. Wally is returning to our program as his adopter does not understand that this is a dog management issue and not aggression that will escalate to people.

Rocky (formerly Harry) is returning to our Rescue as his owner’s new husband cannot overcome his fear of dogs despite numerous therapy sessions. Rocky is now almost 3 years old and he weighs about 45lbs. Although he got along with a small dog in his prior home, he’s been a bit grumpy towards the dogs in his interim foster spot. Rocky had a bit of a limp when he first arrived in our Rescue. An ortho review showed an old injury to his hip that has healed on its own. Surgery was not recommended and Rocky has been doing well with joint supplements. Rocky is crate, leash and house trained. If anyone’s interested in fostering him, we certainly wouldn’t mind! His ideal foster home is one where he’s the only pet so that we can determine his boundaries with other dogs and if he has any pain in his hip. Thanks for any consideration! ~Suz
