The Shelter Chronicles: By the time we get to Woofstock...

What an incredible event today at Roxbury Park. Okay, maybe I'm just excited that WLA had 4 adoptions!

  • Lovely Alex finally found a wonderful home with a dog savvy older lady. She was a doll. Alex will have a doggie sister and a brother.
  • Diana the sweet GSD went home to Corona to live where there is a big yard!
  • Hannah the Chow mix and Clyde the Jack Russell also found homes.

It really was a beautiful day. Everyone did a great job handling our dogs and the dogs were amazing.

Still available...

Chico A1007515
Male Chi/Beagle mix Male 2 years old small
This guy is truly a cute dog. Not a great picture though...
Chico is a quick study and wants to be a good boy. He's learning his basic obedience, is food motivated so it's easy to teach him. Chico's a pretty chill guy who seems to get along with all people and most dogs. He'd be just as happy if was the only dog though. I think he could do well in most living situations either with a family and kids or older folks. He doesn't have issues with kids or men, two common problems we find with unsocialized dogs. On the other hand, Chico seems pretty well balanced. With a little training this little guy will go far!

Tucker A1008350
Pit Bull mix Male Young Medium
The word on the street is that Tucker is the man! I'm learning more about this kiddo, but I keep hearing that he's such a great dog. Friendly and easy going... I will get more info and get back to you on this, but I think he's a star in the making...

Honey A1007468
Pit Bull Female Young Med
I spent some time with Honey today and was very impressed! She is a honey of a girl. She is very sweet and easy going. One thing that impressed me was her excellent focus. Even with all kinds of activities and dogs in close proximity, she would stay in a sit and focus on me waiting for her treat. I think the volunteer handling Honey today fell in love with her. I saw them playing and relaxing. Honey is just as happy as a clam. By the way, Honey was returned to the WLA shelter because she WASN'T mean enough to be a guard dog! What EVER!!! I think Honey could fit into most family situations. Probably better with kids who are over 6 just because of her size and energy.

Sake A1015485
Puggle Male 2 years old small/med
Sake is a real joy to be around. He's great with other dogs and seems to love everyone! He is lovable and playful. I can't say enough about this little sweetheart of a dog. He's way way over weight right now so he'll need a diet. But Sake is raring to go and with a little exercise he'll drop that extra weight. Sake was an owner surrender but there was no indication of why they left him at the shelter. He just seems like a perfectly good boy! This is a great family dog for any family!

There's so many more dogs at WLA. Come check them out!! www.laanimalservices.com
