Souls Deserving a New Ending...

"Polar Bear is a goofy and happy 6-year-old deaf Australian Shepherd who loves people! He's a big guy at 70 pounds, and he has a huge smile for everyone who stops to say hello to him. Polar Bear came to AFRP when his owner passed away and he had no where else to go. He's currently in foster care in Santa Cruz and gets along great with other playful and respectful dogs. He loves to play with balls and toys and enjoys rides in the car. Though he is completely deaf, Polar Bear knows some hand signals and is eager to learn more. Deaf dogs can lead very rich and happy lives!"

 "Zephyr is a silly and smart 2-year-old terrier/schnauzer mix and weighs about 18 pounds. He originally came to AFRP from the Salinas Shelter as a small puppy, and was quickly adopted. Sadly, he recently returned to our care because his family had to move to housing that did not allow dogs. Zephyr knows his basic commands and is house trained. He walks nicely on the leash and enjoys a daily hour-long nature hike. He's a loyal boy who loves to spend time with his people and is good with other dogs, cats and kids. If you are looking for a fun little best friend, Zephyr is your guy!"

 "Got tennis balls? Shadow is a friendly 5-year-old, 80-pound black lab mix who originally came to AFRP from Kern County as a puppy and was quickly adopted. Now that his family can no longer care for him, this wonderful boy is back in our care looking for his forever home. Shadow knows his basic commands and walks nicely on the leash. He gets along with other dogs of all sizes and loves people. (Unknown with cats.) Shadow loves to play fetch and to lay by your feet at the end of the day. He's house trained and is eager to please. Can you give this nice dog the second chance he deserves?"

"Rocco is a 7 year old Retriever/Chow mix, rescued from the South Los Angeles shelter. He is a people-loving sweetheart (including kids!) who equally enjoys cuddling and play. Rocco has been PROFESSIONALLY TRAINED. He will thrive in a home with a buddy or buddies who will welcome him to the pack, and a pet parent who will show him his place in this world and a family identity he has never known. He is currently in boarding in Los Angeles. Check out his training videos at  For more information email or call 310-650-2475."

I really love Rocco. All of these dogs tug at my heart, but some tug just a little bit harder than others. I'm not sure if it's because he reminds me of my Dingo, but Rocco is special. I hope he finds a family of his own that will love him and comfort him and give him the life he deserves.
