Labrador / Pointer Mix

Lily is a beautiful short haired, black and white female Labrador/Pointer mix. She’s approximately 5-6 months old, 45 lbs, healthy, vaccinated & microchipped. Lily is very sweet and smart, loves her toys, gets along well with other dogs and is cat friendly. She is starting to walk well on a leash, and sits for a treat. Lily is doing great with potty training. She will need some basic training like any puppy but she’s very food motivated & eager to please.

Husky Mix

Jasmine is a female husky mix or I would say even shepherd/husky mix? She’s approximately 3 years old, 70lbs, vaccinated and micro chipped. We aren’t sure if she is spayed but we are allowing her to recover from her wounds before we do any investigation. Jasmine was found as a stray and mauled by two pit bulls in the streets of Bakersfield. She is recovering very well from her wounds, and is very loving and sweet. She walks well on a leash and doesn’t seem to be bothered by other dogs. Not cat tested. Jasmine is potty trained & very smart.


Maltese Poodle Mix

Jef was dumped at South Los Angeles Animal Shelter. He couldn’t walk, his nails were overgrown, his ears were infected and sealed shut from dirt and wax, his eyes were also infected with ocular discharge, he had missing and infected teeth, foxtails in his feet, he was covered with his own urine and feces, he was malnourished, shaking, and dehydrated. Despite all of this, he was very sweet and friendly to everyone at the shelter. The shelter listed him as a code orange, but he was pulled on Saturday, July 22nd and was taken straight to Sherman Oaks Veterinary Group. He needed 5 baths to get clean, has had X-rays, bloodwork, and a full examination. He is now walking, eating well, and has regained some of his hearing and sight. He will need ongoing medication for his back and joints, and some dental care. He is approximately 10 years old, 8 lbs, neutered, now microchipped, and is likely a Maltese-Poodle mix. Despite the horrific life and abuse he has suffered, he is very trusting of people and is very grateful towards everyone who is helping him. In just 24 hours he is truly on the road to recovery!
