Foster a Rescue

Fostering is
  FREE and FUN! 

We not only provide you with everything you need to take care of one of our rescues, but the experience is SO fulfilling. By placing one animal into a foster home, you allow us to save another. We are always in need of foster parents.

Meet Vanilla, Ben and Jerry!

NOTE: Vanilla looks like a medium size terrier, but she is actually a small breed as she is only 20lbs and we doubt she will reach 25lbs 

What breed are these guys? who knows! They are Baja blend adorable mutts!
Ben - must be a small terrier/poodle
Jerry- long legged, extremely curly coat and medium size teen who could be said to be a medium labradoodle type or standard poodle BUT MUCH SMALLER; expected to be in the mid 30 pounds when full grown. 
Vanilla - many see her and think she looks like a westie mix but she is likely a poodle/terrier mix that looks much more like a medium scruffy terrier at approx 30 lbs already full grown.

All these 3 friends were rescued from a home in Tijuana when their owner moved out of the city and neighbors reported dogs left in the patio for weeks. An indie rescuer took them from theyard and quarantined for us while we vaccinated and made arrangements to transport them to San Diego. They have never been inside dogs or have had a normal leash/outings life, but currently are boarding and have learned to walk on leash and are HUGE socialites towards people and other dogs. The boys are cat friendly and Vanilla could be fine, but also has shown some interest. She could be ok with cats as long as s she is upervised to be corrected. They sleep well in the crate BUT they (especially Ben, followed by Vanilla and sometimes Jerry) can be a bit vocal/whinny like most terriers and small breeds. So a home vs apartment life may be best as well as someone who is home often with short stints outside of the home or has time/experience to help train and adjust them into a schedule at home.... to learn how to be home alone in their crate during day not just at night. NOT house trained and the boys are still young teens so we anticiapted still chewing stages since they love to play with toys and other dogs. 

If you'd like to adopt or foster please submit a dog adoption application online @arwob.org to schedule a meet and greet in the 92117 area ALL up to date on medical and healthy. 

Don't wait...Submit an adoption application today!
