FUN Burrito , Taco & Pepper design on orange (pattern will vary) Pepper is being fostered by AMAZING humans and two fur siblings, Bubba & Daisy (yes, they have their own bow ties too) Pepper was heartworm high positive, and had been in the shelter 180 days. She was brought home there was some fancy paperwork completed to  sponsor her on the heartworm “fast kill” protocol. She had a few visits to the vet (and some painful shots) but we are on our way to heartworm free! Pepper LOVES her stuffed burrito and stuffed Taco - we have Taco-time every night. To learn more about Pepper see the "Meet Pepper" section below. 


  • From her Foster Momma:

    Pepper is our sweet foster hound! I went to volunteer to walk dogs at the shelter and Pepper (Houndo the Doggo) was the only dog that didn’t jump/react excited as I walked by her kennel, so I took her out for a walk! She was sooo happy and so sweet and when I returned her to her kennel… she jumped up and hugged my waist… That was it! We found out she was heartworm high positive, and also has been in the shelter 180 days. We brought her home, and did some fancy paperwork to allow us to sponsor her on the heartworm “fast kill” protocol, had a few visits to the vet (and some painful shots) but we are on our way to heartworm free! Pepper LOVES her stuffed burrito and stuffed Taco - we have Taco-time every night. Some things are new to Pepper, like sleeping by yourself and not having to “hold-it” all day but she’s obsessed with the new creature she’s discovered called Squirrel… she’s very much looking forward to the “all clear” so she can give these squirrels a run for their money!!

Bow Ties can be gently cleaned with damp cloth.Bear was one of our foster dogs in March of 2018. He was estimated to be 6 months of age and was found as a stray. Except for a child’s bite mark/scar on his ear, he was healthy. No tags, no microchip, and no owner ever came for him. We only had him for 2.5 weeks before he was adopted out. He was the hardest goodbye. It’s always bittersweet when our fosters get adopted out, however, Bear’s departure was a bit more dramatic. He was being transported to Las Vegas, a 4hr trip from us. The experienced transport volunteer had the hardest time getting Bear to leave. He didn’t want to leave our house and fought her to come back inside. Fearing I was making things worse, I had to walk away so he’d hopefully go easier with her. To make it worse, our dog, Edna, was depressed when he left. He made it to his new family. I asked for updates and received one or two. He seemed to be doing well, and he and one of the owners had moved to Oregon. Then in May of last year, the rescue founder notified me that Bear was found in a southern CA shelter. Our heart sank. His microchip info was never changed so the rescue was notified. We immediately agreed to foster again. Thankfully, a volunteer made the trek 3hrs away to break him out of the shelter for us. He arrived in horrible shape. We were heartbroken seeing him. He had numerous ticks, scars, cut up paws, and was walking badly. He’d lean into us and cry. We knew we were about to become foster failures for the very first time. With the help of our rescue, we got him fixed up and back to living the pampered life. We came to find out, he cries all the time anyway. So, he probably partly conned us but we couldn’t imagine life without our Bear.
