Adopt Alfie

*PLEASE NOTE: The first step in the process is to complete an adoption application, which can be found here: Adoption Application

Please meet Alfredo, aka Alfie, who came to us when his owners were no longer able to care for him.  Alfie has been settling into his foster home nicely and is eager and ready for a forever home of his own!

He is approximately 4-5 months old and weighs just about 10-12 pounds and is not likely to grow much more!  Alfie is the definition of a velcro pup and loves to cuddle and be as close to his people as he can.  Alfie was not socialized much as a puppy and therefore can be afraid of new people and new situations.  It is important for his forever family to understand that they must take things slow and in return Alfie will warm up and be a wonderful companion!

Alfie is being fostered with another smaller dog and they enjoy playing together!  Alfie would love another dog in his forever home to show him the ropes and be a playmate!  He does bark at new sounds and people but once you tell him no or to stop the barking subsides.

If you are interested in Alfredo, please fill out an adoption application here: Adoption Application
Any questions about him can be directed to

*PLEASE NOTE: Alfredo's adoption fee is $500 and he is being fostered in West Hills, CA*

*** Please use a home computer to fill out the application as some mobile devices do not support the data submission from them.  If you have any problems filling out the application, please contact us at and let us know!

• Home visits are required prior to being considered for adoption.

• Completed application and approved home visit do NOT guarantee adoption

• We receive many more applications than we do dogs, so some people will be disappointed.  We may receive over 100 inquiries for a single, highly desirable dog!

• We do not ship our dogs

There is a $20 application fee required to submit an application to adopt one of our rescued dogs. You can make this payment via PayPal at or on Venmo at         (Please note your name and the name of the dog you are applying for in the comments section of your payment)

I attest all information I provided above is true. I promise to care for the dog to the best of my ability, with the full intent of keeping the dog for the duration of its life. I also agree to keep a collar with tags on the dog, provide quality dog food, adequate shelter, veterinary care and training as needed.*
