Rescue Me ID: 16-05-02-00377GIDGET (female)

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet GIDGET -- AVAILABLE -- SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA ONLY -- EMAIL: ADOPTIONS@WAGGINGDOG.ORG -- Got piglet? Well, we do! Our cutie patootie GIDGET is the sweetest lil piggie hippo doggie girl in town. We first met this stubby dog while volunteering at her shelter and after we learned more about her, we just knew she had to be a Wagging Dog! Gidget arrived at the shelter as a stray. We don't know what brought her to that point in life, but she was adopted soon after arrival by a seriously irresponsible and downright stupid family. They picked Gidget up from her spay surgery and took her to a dog park - in a muzzle - that same day. Thank Dog they ... (Read More)returned her to the shelter the next day because they 'didn't like her behavior at the dog park.' Never mind that they ripped her surgery site open with that foolish stunt. Forget that her hormones were all over the place, she was on pain killers and antibiotics from surgery, and should have been home resting quietly and not stuffed into a muzzle at a dog park and accosted by other ill mannered animals. Welp, after we heard that ridiculous tale, we searched for a foster home, found one, and drove her out of the shelter for good. Loving girl Gidget is ready to meet her forever future. She's definitely in the market for responsible dog owners. A family who understands leadership and is willing to set boundaries for our young lady is a must. We want to know that the good manners she's learning in foster care will continue in her forever home and future. Gidget is very playful and a well matched adult male companion dog would be great. She enjoys watching squirrels in the backyard and going for daily walks and exercise. Gidget is crate trained, house broken, current on everything and microchipped. Her bags are packed and she's great in the car so send us an app today if you'd like to add this beauty to your fur family! -- To view more pupdates and photos, please visit Gidget on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.1141891592502007.1073741967.294289027262272&type=3 (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-04-28-00187LILLIAN (female)

Pug Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet LILLIAN -- AVAILABLE FOR FOSTER OR FOREVER -- EMAIL: ADOPTIONS@WAGGINGDOG.ORG --SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA ONLY -- This pretty lady with the adorable underbite is Lillian, a white and tan gal of around 15 pounds and 4 years. We think she looks like a pug Jack Russell blend, possibly with some chihuahua thrown in for good measure. Whatever her genetics, we know for sure that Lillian has been a great momma to her two baby pups. Now that they're leaving the nest, she's ready to find true love of her own. Could you be the forever family she dreams of? Or perhaps a temporary foster family while she keeps her eye out for her future? Lillian found ... (Read More)herself stuck at the Downey shelter earlier this year, large and uncomfortable as she was just about ready to give birth to her babes. We weren't able to let this family come into this world in our foster home, but we did get them the very next day. Even with such a traumatic experience, this pretty lady kept her chin out :) and adapted to these drastic changes in her young life. We don't know if she had a family before but if so, it doesn't seem like they ever had anything to do with her. She seemed almost feral when we first met her, but she's quickly learning that being a cherished part of a family inside a warm, loving home can be quite nice. Lovely Lillian can be head shy, and slow movements and a chin scratch make her feel safer than hands reaching over her head. She clearly has never been walked on a leash so her foster family is showing her how fun family walks can be. Lillian's pretty low energy so, while still necessary for exercise, her walks are more for bonding and trust time. She's definitely shown us how much she really wants to trust and love us. While wary of new people at first, she gains comfort quickly and is also a fan of treats which helps! Lillian's a real velcro dog with her trusted humans, and she might even let out a bark or two when she's feeling extra lonely. She's very responsive to verbal correction and really wants to please, and she'll quiet down with a single request from her beloved people. She's crate trained and perfecting her house manners and skills, and she's looking for a single family home with or without a backyard. Children over 10 if any are fine, and cats likely okay too. A companion dog is not necessary as Lillian would probably enjoy being the belle of the ball in her future family. Like all dogs, she needs humans willing to provide leadership and set boundaries so she can continue being a model furry family member. Our queen of the underbite will be ready to move into her new home soon, so if yours sounds like The One, please get in touch today! She's having her grill cleaned so she can flash a winning smile when she meets you :) We can't wait for this sweet girl to have all the love and responsible care that she deserves with a forever family! -- To view more photos and pupdates, please visit Lillian on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.1141901109167722.1073741970.294289027262272&type=3 (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-03-23-00253BRIGGS (male)

American Bulldog Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Female Dogs Only, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet BRIGGS -- AVAILABLE -- SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA ONLY -- EMAIL: ADOPTIONS@WAGGINGDOG.ORG -- Can't. Stand. The. Cuteness. Seriously?? This dog is SO freakin cute!! He's big, beefy and such a sweetie - built like a linebacker :) Briggs looks like an American Bully, a blend of bulldog and pit bull. He's got bulldog nubs for teeth and a horrible hack job on his ears (which resulted in chronic ear problems causing lots of pain - lame). Briggs is a cool blue tricolor, and his former owner abandoned him at the shelter saying he was too much energy. YA RIGHT. This dog is anything but. We think Briggs is around 3+ years and he weighs 80ish pounds. He ... (Read More)came to us in bedraggled shape but with clean living, nutritious food and supplements, his coat has returned to full shiny health. Like most of the young dogs we get in rescue, they were raised with no boundaries by their original owners. Everyone wants a cute puppy and then they fail to provide structure and guidance. For Briggs, it would've cost him his life at the shelter but we were able to grab him in the eleventh hour. Briggs has been working on his manners and behavior and has come far in the very skilled care of one of our best foster homes. We saw the potential in this stocky gem of a dog and just needed the right people to help him realize it, and he's turned into one of their fave dogs of all time! Briggs gets along great with dogs of all sizes and really enjoys playtime with pals. He loves belly rubs, is super loyal, and as you might imagine he's something of a people magnet. Good thing he loooooves the attention! Beefcake Briggs is looking for a forever family with an above average understanding of dogs; a family who lives a leadership lifestyle with your well mannered animals. He needs people willing to set boundaries - for life, not just a few months - in a quieter child free home environment. A well matched, calm adult companion dog might be nice but not necessary for this people lover. He's not cat tolerant. Briggs has been learning that Nothing In Life Is Free - NILIF. This lifestyle philosophy will help Briggs continue to excel in his forever future with YOU :) He's working on not jumping up when he gets excited and although it's a tough habit to break, he's really excelling. Oh, and be prepared for LOTS of kisses! Inquire today and schedule a time to meet our resident beefcake Briggs! -- To view more photos and pupdates, please visit Briggs on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.976213849069783.1073741938.294289027262272&type=3 (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-11-01-00202CHEWBACCA (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    MEET CHEWBACCA -- AVAILABLE -- SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA ONLY -- ADOPTIONS@WAGGINGDOG.ORG -- This little imp is Chewbacca, but his friends call him Chewie. Believe it or not, he's even cuter in the fur :) He's a happy pup of a couple years and the perfect best friend size at 50 pounds. We have no idea what his ingredients are (besides cute, that is) - perhaps pit bull shepherd blend? He loves water so maybe throw in some retriever too. Turn the hose on and instead of running, Chewie figures that's the signal to play! Yay! Our golden kid with the widow's peak and forehead wrinkles is a sweet and gentle boy. He gets so excited to see his people that ... (Read More)his tail wags wildly for at least two minutes (even if they're just walking into the room from another room lol). Chewie's full of energy and loves other dogs. He's not a fan of cats but he sure hopes to have a playful doggie pal who likes to cuddle too. He's been perfecting his manners and skills and is super treat motivated. It's funny how his hearing improves when there's food involved too. He's crate trained and house broken, and although an active guy, he's good at entertaining himself with toys when it's time to chill out. Chewie hopes his people will like to play fetch cuz along with a love of water, he's great at retrieving the ball. Over and over and over. He's sure to keep you in stitches with his goofy antics and puppy fun :) Like most dogs, Chewie loves his walks and needs daily exercise and mental stimulation to thrive and grow. A semi-active family willing to provide leadership and structure will help this darling boy mature into one fine adult. If you're a fun loving family who enjoys doing things with your furkids too, then get in touch and meet Chewiepooh. He'll snag your heart and hopefully a forever place with you! -- To view more photos and pupdates of Chewie, please visit him on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.1019348368089664.1073741946.294289027262272&type=3 (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-09-20-00678TWINKIE (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    MEET TWINKIE * AVAILABLE * EMAIL: ADOPTIONS@WAGGINGDOG.ORG * SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA ONLY --- This gorgeous little guy with the expressive ears is Twinkie, and you'd never know he was the same pup we first spotted in the darkest corner of his shelter kennel. He kept himself stuffed in that corner for 2 whole months after a harrowing experience dodging cars and then being caught by a Good Sam. He wouldn't allow the volunteers to touch him or take him out for walks. We knew we had to help him, and we had the perfect foster home :) He's so confident and outgoing now that you'd never know this was the same dog, and other shy dogs in our rescue ... (Read More)family look to him for guidance. So awesome! Twink has shown his loving, playful self to the humans he has come to trust, and he's ready to share that love with his forever family! Twinkie is a small chihuahua who's around 3 years old and 10-ish pounds. He's a fan of belly rubs and scratches so you can tickle your way into his heart pretty quickly. His favorite pastimes are warming laps and chasing crumpled paper balls around the office with his foster bro. He jumps like a gazelle! Twinkie's a medium energy guy who will enjoy another dog to play and cuddle with. He'll even take a feline pal if there's one in his forever home. A backyard would be great as he does love to zoom, but he's also fine without a yard as long as he gets one good walk a day and a couple short ones to potty and explore. Twinkie's leash manners didn't start off so hot, but he's a joy to walk these days and is great in the car too. He's become such a sweet and well behaved guy who will do best with humans willing to provide leadership and set boundaries so that he knows exactly what is expected of him. A family with respectful high school age children would be fine. He's crate trained too, not a barker and perfect for homes with shared walls. Wouldn't it be great to start your morning off with some Twinkie? :) If your forever home sounds like the one Twinkie's been looking for, let us know! We'd love to introduce you to this special little guy. --- TO VIEW MORE PHOTOS AND PUPDATES ON TWINKIE, PLEASE VISIT HIM ON FACEBOOK AT: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.994450350579466.1073741943.294289027262272&type=3 (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-09-14-00318SUNSHINE (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    MEET SUNSHINE --- AVAILABLE --- SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA ONLY --- Prepare for your heart to melt when you meet our beautiful golden girl Sunshine. Her sweet, shy demeanor longing to be loved is simply irresistible. A petite pit bull terrier around 8+ years young, Sunny is the perfect size companion at 45 pounds. This incredible survivor is a gal who never ceases to amaze us, and she's ready to share her specialness with forever folks who are special too. Sound like you? Sunshine's foster parents say she's the best furry family member, so quiet, mellow and loving. She remains very shy and timid, and it's heartwarming to see a low tail wag of ... (Read More)excitement when you come home. If she wants more attention, she'll give your calf a little nudge. Sunshine is extremely sensitive to loud noises and is looking for a calm, quiet home environment to enjoy forevermore. Sun is a big fan of food, and you wouldn't believe how excited she gets when it's meal time :) A quiet girl herself, she barks her joy during food prep time. Hehe! Sunny really loves her canine foster family too and hopes for a calm older dog around her own size or bigger who will enjoy being with her. She thinks cats and small animals provide lots of fun to chase so will be best suited for a home without these friends. Turtles with their slow, calm energy, however, are A-okay in her book. She just wants a peaceful home with no young (loud) children and parents who like to go for walks and spend time together. Do you have the perfect future for our deserving ray of light? Ready to fill your home and heart with golden love this year? Reach out and see why we are all so smitten. --- To view additional photos and pupdates of Sunshine, please visit her on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.813849111972925.1073741902.294289027262272&type=3 (Less)
