Pet Sunday

I hauled myself out of bed yesterday to check out Bow Wow Meow - an annual pet street fair in Brentwood with various animal retailers and service providers displaying their wares along San Vicente. I'd thought there would be more animal rescue groups there - only West L.A. was represented among the LAAS shelters - but it was still good fun.

And here are a few of the dogs that were (are!) available for adoption:

West L.A. shelter
This sweet girl is a 5-year-old Jack Russell mix who is good with other dogs and friendly to people, but has a bit of a weight problem. I'm guessing she was overfed and ignored by her owner, who then surrendered her to the West L.A. shelter. A really pretty girl.

Bark Avenue Rescue
Sundance is a K-9 Connection dog which means he has gone through basic training. Good boy! He is a 10-month-old American staffordshire terrier mix who is a bit selective with other dogs, and shouldn't be in a household with cats. But such a nice guy and pretty mellow for his age.

Private rescuer - Robin Favor 310.395.5559
Alfie was pulled out of the shelter in San Gabriel and was adopted by a nice person, who, unfortunately, was recently hit by a car and can't care for a dog. Alfie is a small, year-and-a-half old poodle who good with other dogs and very social - he needs a home with other pooches.

Private rescuer - Roxy


Hershey was rescued from the South L.A. shelter, which means he was one of the lucky ones. He's a 10 month - 1 year old male pit bull who is good with both dogs and cats. He was abused and therefore a little fearful, but getting better daily with his foster/rescuer, Roxy. Very sweet and mellow.

The Rescue Train
Cooper is a 2-year-old shepherd/Leonberger mix and a major water lover who was rescued from the East Valley shelter. He doesn't get along with dominant male dogs, but has completed a training program, and is a really nice, goofy guy.
