Adoption Questionnaire

Our goal is to match you with the best dog to fit your lifestyle. To get started, please fill out this brief adoption questionnaire and we will get back to you to set up a meet and greet. After meeting our dog(s) and you are ready to forward with adoption, we will provide you with resources to help you get ready for your new dog and arrange a home delivery. Our suggested adoption donation is $250. This tax-deductible donation helps us continue our mission to help dogs in need.

Please note: Our dogs are available for adoption in the greater Los Angeles area. We do not adopt out of state. We occasionally have courtesy listings for dogs that belong to other rescue groups. Please read the pet’s bio and contact that group directly for more information.

Meet sweet Bruno! He is abou 11 years young and has a puppy-like zest for life. Bruno loves to explore, go for walks, and is an A+ snuggler. He is friendly with people and especially LOVES men. Bruno was adopted from DDR as a young puppy and after years in a family, sadly, his owner passed away and he's been back at our kennel once again looking for a home. He has done well with bossy female dogs, but would be VERY HAPPY being an only dog getting all the human attention he can get.

MEET KERMIT: Part Frog-Part Kangaroo! We rescued this bouncy youngster from South LA shelter in Feb and soon learned that he tested positive for heart worm. We've had him on a regimented treatment plan and he has now completed his initial treatment. He is ready for a forever home where he should continue heartworm prevention as recommended by a veterinarian. Kermit is silly, super smart and loves to learn. He is playful with dogs and has a rough and tumble play style. Because of his bouncy nature we recommend a home with older kids and someone who is dedicated to continue keeping his training so he can be a good doggy citizen. SEE ADDITIONAL VIDEO OF KERMIT: https://youtu.be/pMFHsIOtveY https://www.instagram.com/p/B_sPLBOAVAC/ Kermit is roughly 1.5-2yo and weighs about 50lbs and filling out. He is crate-trained, microchipped, current on shots and will be neutered upon adoption.

Meet Kobe! He is a 5 year old Mastiff/Staffordshire terrier mix. Kobe is cute! He has a stocky build and a gorgeous face. He is 75 pounds full grown. Kobe has a shiny black coat with white markings. Kobe is originally from the South LA Shelter and is now living at the Downtown Dog Rescue kennel. Kobe trains every Sunday with our dog trainer. If you adopt Kobe, he comes with 6 months of weekly training sessions at our kennel plus two weeks of boarding. He walks well on leash and does not pull unless he sees a cat or small dog. He knows his basic commands, sit, down, stay and come and orients to his handler well. Kobe is very strong, but very gentle and sweet as well. Due to his size and strength we believe he would do well with an experienced dog owner either as an only dog or with a large confident female dog. Here is what his trainer recently said about him: I've been working with Kobe for a few months now, and he is always happy to see me and always ready for some fun together. We have been working on leash manners and he does very nicely (unless there is a stray cat lurking about and we have been working on leaving those alone too.) Kobe enjoys going to the park and watching all of the kids, bikes, dogs and horses that go by with ease. He knows all of his commands like; sit, down, stay, focus, and is working on rollover! He's easy to get in and out of the car and is an excellent passenger. I really can't say enough great things about this big hunk, he has the looks and the personality and would be a great dog to snuggle with on the couch. Yesterday Kobe worked on walking nicely by distractions, ie bikes, remote cars, drones, horses, goats, dogs, kids playing soccer etc. We worked on down, stay, and learned rollover (which is more rub my belly ?). He was great getting in and out of my car and sat nicely outside Starbucks and had a puppachino with a lot of stuff going on around him. SEE VIDEO!

Meet the stunning looking Morty, who we call Morty-Snorty as he snorts a lot. He walks perfectly on leash and is the type dog you can walk in any metropolitan areas and he is quiet and calm. Morty is 7 years old and weighs 52 pounds, is low to the ground, and is in great shape. He is the type that is not cuddly unless he knows his person very well. He can get very unsure if people push him to pet and hug so is best suited in a one person household that is a low stress environment as a companion dog. He is good with dogs but does not care that much about them, and would be just fine and content as the only dog. He loves to go for walks and tag along for car rides and is a dog that needs a laid back, easy-going lifestyle and hanging out with his person. Morty is already neutered, up-to-date with shots, micro-chipped and house-trained. If you are interested in Morty, please fill out our brief online questionnaire (copy and paste link): www.downtowndogrescue.org/adoption-questionnaire Additional Downtown Dog Rescue contact info: Email: adopt@downtowndogrescue.org or call: 818-407-4145.

SEE VIDEO ALSO ON THIS PAGE! Princess Daisy is a young adult Pit Bull who we rescued from South L.A. Shelter when she was 4 months of age. She would do best in a house with a yard as the only dog where she can exercise running around, lay in the sun and relaxing, and hang out with her owner and live an easy life! She must be a companion dog to the humans, both indoors and out. At seven years old she weighs 75 pounds and is fully grown. Princess Daisy is a beautiful dog with perfect eyeliner just like a Geisha! She is very calm and affectionate in the house and loves to lay by your feet and relax and is happy to greet every person that comes around, but will get anxious walking on leash on busy streets with people running/jogging, bicycles and skateboards coming towards her. Princess Daisy needs a confident and patient owner who will continue to work with her being out and about in the big world if that is desired, HOWEVER she would be very happy to be a “house dog” and live an easy life with you in and out of the house and go for car rides which is one of her favorite things to do, and most of all, being close to her person and getting tummy rubs! Are you a person that would enjoy giving this girl a chance to have a great life? She would love to be your one and only and she will be the most loyal and loving friend you will ever have! Princess Daisy is crate-trained, house-broken, spayed, microchipped and has had all shots including rabies and is a very healthy dog.
