Aida
Photos
Aida is a sweet senior who was left at the shelter. The shelter is no place for any senior to be so we gladly took her into rescue to find her a loving home with lots of TLC. Aida's age is not known but we believe her to be between 10-12 years old. She has some arthritis so is a little slow to get up but she enjoys and does fine with short walks. Aida likes being with her loved ones and will gently nudge you to pet her. She is fine with other dogs but we don't know how she feels about cats. Aida will make someone a very nice companion.

Alyssa
Photos
Alyssa is an 8 year old female who came to us from a shelter.  Initially very frightened & timid she has blossomed into a sweet, gentle and loving golden girl.  She LOVES people.  At her foster she is a typical golden following you from room to room, sitting or lying by your side, a paw in your lap.  She walks nicely on leash and likes to meet people and receive their attention.  She loves her squeaky and stuffed toys.  She rides nicely in a car though still likes a boost to get in.  She responds to her name & a few commands; a treat in your hand and she is yours!

She is still learning about how safe she feels around some other dogs.  She is least sure about little dogs or dogs that invade her space - get in her face.  She is not an aggressive dog but may give warnings when she doesn’t feel safe.  Right now we keep some distance from passing dogs on walks to help with that.  With calm dogs who just let her be she has done well.  And she continues to surprise us.  She recently spent a week with a calm little dog and blended right in - walking in tandem & sleeping next to each other.    
 For now Alyssa needs to be placed in a ‘single dog home’ and with parents who will continue to work with her in feeling safe.  Alyssa is looking for a more quiet home with lots of love and someone around more often than not.

Cobi

Cobi is an approximately 9 year old, male Golden/lab mix. Cobi came to rescue when he ended up in a shelter. He has a quintessen-tial Golden/Labrador temperament and personality, he is super sweet and gentle. He has learned to use the doggie door in his foster home. He loves to go on walks, but short ones as he tires. If you are looking for a companion to hang out with and love, Cobi is the boy for you. Cobi gets along with dogs, but we don’t know about cats.

Darwin '16
Photos
Darwin is a 10-year- old Golden mix. Darwin came into rescue when his owner could no longer keep him. His foster says he's cute as a bug's ear, gentle, lovable, a Velcro dog, a cuddler, loves to lay on the couch when called up and sleeps on the bed. Listens well to commands, walks well on leash, comes when called most of the time.  He loves to stick his head out the window when riding in a vehicle. Darwin gets along with most dogs, but not all, for this reason he will be best suited in a single dog home, unless it's with a confirmed pacifist pooch, and probably no cats. His unique appearance with his Golden feathers and upright ears is an attention-getter and many people comment on how good looking he is. He goes to the office with his foster dad regularly and everyone who meets him thinks he's adorable. He's alert and makes a good watch dog, while not being over zealous or obnoxious. And of course loves his squeaky toys!

Gracie '13
Photos
Gracie is a 4 year old girl who is very sweet, very active, will need a home where she has direction and time for her.    She is a very smart, active, strong willed girl.   Gracie is not a dog for a home with children.  Children leave things around, do not put things away, and have lots of items where she can take them and run with them.    If she thinks you will chase her, she will grab anything and run with him.   It's a game to her.

Gracie's forever homes needs to a have a fence over 4 feet - she can jump over a low fence, gates that are secure - she will bolt if they are not closed properly.   Everything is a game to her.   She loves to ride in the car and loves going on vacation with the family.

Gracie is a cuddly girl and loves to sit on the couch with her owner.   If her new family says "no dogs on furniture" it will not work.   She love her people.   She is sweet, very cute, and VERY ACTIVE.

Jared
Photos
Jared, a 3 year old Golden mix, was found at a local shelter. This boy was quite popular with the shelter staff and when the day came for him to leave with one of our volunteers, most of the shelter staff came out to tell him goodbye and wish him well. This is not what usually happens when dogs leave the shelter so that told us what a nice boy Jared was. Jared is looking for a home with no other dogs because he is particular about which dogs he wants to be friends with. Jared would also like a home with no cats or small children under 7 years old because we don't know how he feels about either one of those. Jared is currently at our vet's office where he is winning the hearts of his caregivers.

Lucilla
Photos
Lucilla is a gorgeous 6 year old girl, who is good with other dogs, housebroken, good in the car, and walks well on the leash.   She is currently in training for some behavioral issues and will only go to a home that will be willing to work with the trainer so that she will succeed in all that she has learned.

Ideally, Lucilla will go to a single dog home, ok with a cat, no children of any age, person who works is ok but should not be putting in long hours away from home.   Lucilla is on medicine for her anxiety and is afraid of thunder, fireworks and other loud noises, so no homes by Disneyland, etc.   Her forever home has to be one that will follow what the trainers are teaching her and not hesitate to contact them for any issues that may arise.

Melinda

Melinda is a beautiful 11 year old female golden. She originally came to rescue in the Fall of 2015 when she was brought into a Long Beach Shelter as a stray. Melinda was adopted but came back to rescue in Oct 2016 when her foster mom became ill. She is a medium sized girl who loves her walks and loves to swim. Being a typical golden she wants to be with her people and if allowed likes to sit on the furniture. She has a moderate activity level and gets along with the other dogs in her foster home.

Vernon

Vernon is a beautiful 5 year old boy who is looking for a home of his own. Vernon does not like other dogs so his new home will be one that allows him to be the only resident dog. Vernon is a very loving dog who wants to be with his family as much as possible. He loves to swim and play ball and would love to find a home with a pool.  Vernon has good house manners and is now starting his search for the right family; one where he will be loved and cherished.
