NOTE:  Aspen will be loosing her foster family as of 11/19/20 and will return to her boarding in Tijuana if we cannot find a foster, foster-to-adopt, or adoptive family. Sadly, she isn't the dog for everyone, as she will likely need an experienced dog owner.  Her adopter will need strong dog leadership skills and they must know how to be a good observer and handler.  Aspen is not an “off the leash at the dog park” kind of dog.  She is “dog selective,” which means she is not going to be friends with all dogs, but she is also not going to try to attack them while on leash, nor bark/lunge at them when she has a dog encounter while walking or hiking.  She ignores other dogs for the most part.  Aspen’s ideal home will likely be one who is looking for just one family dog and has no cats. She does love humans!!  Although she has met children on/off leash and has at times been sweet to them, a home without small children would likely be the best for her.  This ideal home can sometimes include playtime with some dogs she considers friends.  Providing dog training from the start would be perfect and her new foster or adopter will be able to talk with her current foster to see what type of training has already been done.  Medically, Aspen is super healthy!  Even though she may be 6 years old and is happy/content with being calm, she can also be pretty active/energetic and would make a great hiking buddy and enjoys long walks.  Her blood work is great and she recently had a dental treatment, including removing her canine teeth and several other teeth that were fractured from the time before she was rescued.
UPDATE 10-31- 20:  Here is what Aspen's foster family has to say about her:'Aspen seemed to have some anxiety when she first arrived at our home and would whine by the door or in her crate or pant a lot, but with a little love and affection she quickly adjusted and learned the rules fast. She responds very well to “no” and knows which areas she’s not allowed in. She did well with formal training and learned how to not pull on the leash and walk nicely by your side, but you will need to be consistent with it. Getting her to sit off leash with a verbal command is difficult as she is not food driven and will not sit for treats. She only sits when she is on leash by your side with a gentle reminder by pulling up on the leash. Sometimes I think she does not like to sit because of her hip (you will notice she sits off to one side). She enjoys eating leaves from the garden and human food (cooked veggies, rice, sweet potato) over dog food, I think because they’re soft and easier to chew. She eats hard dog food very slowly because she is missing several teeth, so maybe soft treats and soft food would be better for her. Aspen sleeps nicely in her crate every night and will go to her crate on her own throughout the day, however she will resist if she knows you are leaving. Sometimes she will run to a corner or under the bed if you tell her to go to her place, but this can easily be fixed with consistent training on leash (when her leash is on, she goes to her place on command). She is not super destructive but has lightly chewed on a few items that were in the yard (boxing glove and yoga mat), but they weren’t destroyed or anything (again, probably has to do with her missing some teeth). She also responds well to “no” if you see her try to grab something or if you correct her for trying to chew on something.Aspen is very independent and likes to explore outside. She has gotten under the house several times by moving a potted plant that was blocking the crawlspace, so make sure there are no holes because she will find it. Several times she has also bolted out of the door when we came home, but if you chase her and yell after her she immediately stops and rolls over on her back. Despite her being a little mischievous at times, she is the absolute sweetest. Even though she likes all people and gets along great with everyone, she has attached onto me and will follow me around everywhere. She likes to sleep under my side of the bed and it has become her spot whenever I’m in bed, or she wants to get away from everyone. She is dominant with other dogs, but lives with a male staffy rescue we brought home a couple weeks after getting Aspen. He is about 3 years old and a little shorter but stockier than her. He gets along with all dogs, has a very playful attitude and they are best buddies now, even sleeping with each other on occasion. When we brought him home we made sure to introduce them in a neutral area and crate rotate them for the first day. We also had a third dog we brought home that same night, a 1-year-old large pit mix with special needs that we temporarily watched for another rescue. It took her an extra day to warm up to him as he did not believe in personal space and would often times get too close to her where she would nip at him. But with constant monitoring and quick corrections if she was being mean, she eventually allowed him into the pack although she still kept her distance most of the time. Naturally, she would get jealous if I pet any of the other dogs and would come over and sit in front of me, so if there are other dogs in the house make sure to be as neutral as possible and share the love equally.Aspen has been great with all people and is extremely friendly with everyone who has come over to the house. However she did growl twice at children when she was crated and they were running by. I think those were isolated incidents because she was upset that she had to stay in the crate and the kids were playing and screaming. While I’m confident that she can be around children, I do see her being possibly too high-energy around smaller kids.Overall Aspen has been the perfect foster daughter. She even has a secret poop corner away from our nice garden and turf, which was nice and made it easy to pick up after her. She is very swe To meet Aspen, please submit an adoption or foster application online at arwob.orgVisit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.If you would like to meet one of our animals, PLEASE fill out an adoption application.

 UPDATE 4-17-21:  Here is what Corrine's foster mom has to say about her:'Corrine is a sweet old gal who doesn’t let her age get in her way. She’s obviously had a rough life and is happy to indulge in the warm hugs and snuggles, soft beds, friendly dogs, and regular meals that she’s experiencing now. Corrine needs her humans to go slow at first while she takes time to trust again. She is getting used to being held and is even staying on my lap for awhile and sometimes falling asleep. Her preferred places to enjoy the day are on a bed in the sun, in her crate where she masterfully covers herself in a blanket, or in a bed next to wherever I am at the moment. Corrine is not an early riser. She is happy in her crate, snoozing away for 10-12 hours overnight, so you don’t have to worry about letting her out once she’s gone to bed. She usually puts herself to bed around 8:00 and I wake her up to go outside before I head to bed and then she’s good until she gets up in the morning. She appreciates an audience while she eats, which doesn’t always follow the normal breakfast and dinner routine of other dogs. As she’s not a morning person; brunch is more her style. When she first arrived, I put her in a doggie sling and walked her around the block, which she seemed to appreciate. But very quickly, she made it known that she would prefer to put on a harness and walk up the street and back. She spends more time sniffing than walking but seems to love the exercise. Corrine lost one of her eyes (we believe from a past trauma) and her remaining eye is cloudy, but she can make her way around any house and mastered the stairs to the backyard in no time. She is also deaf but doesn’t let that stop her either. Corrine is completely comfortable with my small dogs. She encountered my friend’s gentle, large dog, who seemed to startle her, but she stood her ground and let him know she not to be messed with, and all was fine! She is potty trained, letting you know she needs to go out by finding you and staring you down. And Corrine does great in the car and she does not bark at all. Instead, when she wants my attention or can’t find me, she makes the cutest little noises. For someone who wants a sweet, independent, older dog who’s just looking for a warm place to nap, some yummy food, and lots of love, Corrine is perfect for you.'Corrine will be spayed on 5/10/21 in 3 weeks, so she will be available for adoption after her spay appointment. She has already had a dental in March and she is doing great! if you'd like to meet and potentially adopt Corrine after her spay appointment, please submit an online application. However, if you have a time sensitive situation for adoption, please do not apply, as she won't be available before 5/10/21.

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website. Please review our Adoption Process before filling out an application.  If you would like to try a Foster to Adopt trial, please fill out an Adoption Application.  If you are only interested in temporarily Fostering one of our rescues, please fill out a Foster Application.   Meet Matty!UPDATE 4-16-21:  Matty is on a foster-to-adopt trial and we should know his status in approximately a week.  You are welcome to check back at that time, but for now it seems he has found his forever family.UPDATE 9-16-20:At this time we can only assume Matty has some serious trust issues towards humans and this is why he would not allow anyone to touch him on the day of his rescue.  Consequently, every time he goes through a change (i.e. meeting new people or changing his foster home), he becomes protective and weary of the situation.  This brings out his fearful reaction, which means he can be a “fear biter.”  He arrived in his new San Diego foster home and it was hard to get him out of his crate.  He was growling and trying to bite.  Thankfully his foster is experienced in dog handling and in reading dog behavior.  His crate is his “protective area” where he feels safe from change, but his experienced foster was able to remove him safely.  It took about an hour before his foster could safely touch him.  After an easy going, slow introduction, he started to trust her and within minutes enjoyed and sought attention to be petted.  We can tell he enjoys being loved on, but will have a hard time with new things, probably for awhile.The best home for Matty would be: Experienced dog owner — Matty will NOT be a good pup for a first-time dog owner NO children — especially under the age of 14 Either no other dogs, or a home with dog(s) that do not come on too strong — Matty gets annoyed by pups that want to get in his face to play, so he would be happy as the only dog or if his dog sibling(s) are mellow Available crate for Matty to relax in — he seems to be very fond of his crate, which is a good thing Matty has an appointment to be neutered on Tuesday, 9/22.  He should go into a foster-to-adopt home for 2 weeks and his foster/potential adopter needs to be aware for the potential for nipping, although he has not done so with his current foster.  Please do not apply if the description above does not apply to you.ORIGINAL RESCUE STORY:Meet Matty! This handsome little guy was found wandering in the streets of Tijuana, scared to death and running in between traffic. He was extremely matted and hence his hair had to go.  We think Matty is a young adult between 1-2 years old and is currently under 15 pounds.  He is likely a Poodle/Bichon/Maltese mix. Matty can be very shy and weary of humans and it takes him time to allow people to touch him.  In fact, it took several people to corner him in the streets of Tijuana in order to rescue and help him.  Once he was initially in their care, he stayed at arms length.  However, after a few days he learned to trust people and enjoys jumping on the lap of the person he trusts. He is very dog friendly and we think he will likely be good around cats too.  Because of his weariness, we do not know how he will do around young children, as he may be scared and uncomfortable with fast movements. Matty is now in San Diego and we will update his biography as soon as we get to learn more about him.
