She passed the first test in the process to be a therapy dog with flying colors and now goes on supervised visits. She can't wait - especially for the visit where kids read to her. Ninka loves kids.


Some of you may remember former Japanese Akita foster Misaki? She came to the Rockin' Red Dog still dripping milk from a litter of pups. Plus she was a wild child. Hachi became her pal and he helped her to evolve into an adoptable girl. Apparently his lessons run deep. This is Misaki today walking her brother. Misaki sure found the good life. Thanks to both A Passion for Paws Akita Rescue and the Japanese Akita Club of America.

Sweet Emi found her absolutely perfect home. A loving couple who wanted a sweet, calm girl. And Emi needs a sweet loving couple willing to let her come out of her shell and learn that people truly do deserve to be loved. Thanks A Passion for Paws who rescued her from the Palmdale/LA County shelter. And thanks to everyone who helped Emi begin to heal. She had been a puppy maker who had obviously been abused and then dumped at the shelter. This is why I do what I do.


Here is Jindo DaeYong one year out of the Lancaster/ LA County shelter. He came in to the shelter as a neglect case. Now his life is one of being spoiled and loved. What a difference a year makes.


This old gal's life just got better. Granma was pulled from Palmdale/LA County shelter today. Her POS dumped here three days ago. What do you want to bet the kids are getting a puppy for Christmas? Poor thing is a hot mess. Her coat and skin were so disgustingly dirty. She went straight from the shelter to the groomer's. Here is a picture of the rinse water from her second scrubbing.

How nice to find this picture of former foster Dashi in my In box this morning. Here he is up in Fairbanks AK. I'm pretty sure he is trying to convince his owners that he really isn't so big at 110 pounds. Dashi was here last year at this time. He is a very special and lucky boy 


She was abandoned by her owner out in the High Desert. She came into the Lancaster/LA City matted and her coat was full of foxtails. She also had eye entropian. JACA paid for the surgery to fix her eye. About four marathon grooming sessions and a trip to the vet got all those nasty foxtails out. Then she caught the eye of the most amazing family. Here are before and after photos - her new family adores her and they all take turns grooming her and making her a true beauty.
