About Granny Smith

Granny Smith is the sweetest, most cuddly, little 8 lb girl. If you have a lap, that is exactly where she wants to be (and possibly a little shoulder pouch would work as well!) We do not think she has ever been on a leash, so that is a work in progress, so a home with a secure, small yard for her potty would be ideal (or an apartment/townhouse with a very secure patio for her bathroom breaks works too). She is a quiet girl and can be crated when left alone and overnight (or surely she'd probably love sharing your bed). There are not many things that scare her, including loud noises, so she is fairly confident. Since she is still working on her leash training, lots of walks will take some time, and she does prefer to couch potato or lap it up with her people anyway. A senior at 10 yrs, she is still very spry. At present we are discovering the source of her congestion, so best that she immediately goes into adoption or a foster to adopt as the only dog. If you are looking for a velcro buddy who you can take everywhere and have on your lap most of the day, Granny is your girl! We can cat test on request.

Captain Courage is a very special, approx. 5 yr old boy, 55 lb boy. He was terribly neglected and abused by someone who kept him isolated in their yard. They injured his front left leg badly and, because he did not receive treatment, his leg could not be saved and had to be amputated. Captain is doing really well as a pain-free tripod! He is in a foster home with cats and has mostly ignored them when they are relaxed. With the proper introduction he should be fine living with dog-friendly, saavy cats. Being under-socialized with other dogs but friendly towards them he can get overly excited and his actions might be misunderstood by the other dog and cause a ruckus. He would do well in a home as the only dog, and if being adopted into a home with another dog, his best match would be a calm, mature adult dog who can guide him with further socialization with much supervision in the first months. He is not at all food or toy possessive, has excellent manners and knows basic commands. Captain loves all people pretty much from the moment he meets them, including children. Captain is overall pretty laid-back, happy to hang out in his favorite spot in the house or in a nice shady area in the yard (he really enjoys the outdoors). He is a solid boy, very strong, so his best fit home would be with people who have recent experience with strong, large breed dogs, preferably with some staffie or pittie experience. Although he has acclimated very well being a tripod, due to his size, he is not the perfect dog for a family who wants to go walking and hiking for miles, but loves to enjoy the outdoors and go on easy walks - just under a mile at a time. He loves cuddling and coupled with some easy time outdoors, he will be a very happy camper. show less

Kevin is a very sweet 1 year old with playful puppy energy. He has an overall medium activity level, and because of his youth may get spurts of zoomies and high excitable play. He currently lives with a toddler and several children who are ages 6 - 12 and are very respectful with dogs. The overactive play that occurs every once in a while is managed and overseen by the parents. Kevin loves being with his people, and being outdoors, walks well on leash, and equally enjoys chilling at home and cuddling with his family. He is not a barker, except when the UPS driver comes by. He is good with nice tempered dogs and with dog-friendly cats. He would do very well in a home with a private secure yard, and would be fine in a condo, townhouse or apartment with regular consistent walks for his potty breaks. He is fully crate trained, but of course would rather be hanging with his people. Because of his highly sociability he would enjoy a home where people are home most of the day to interact with him, so not a dog for people who work outside the home 8 hours a day - he would be too lonely and sad. If you think your home would be a great fit for this sweet little guy, please email us directly at therealbark@gmail.com and we will send you a link to our adoption application. Please note that we are set up to adopt within the LA area. show less

Noni Spumoni

“Ask not what your dog can do for you…”. Noni is not a dog that will bring you her favorite toy or wag her tail like crazy when you pet her, she is just not overly demonstrative as a rule BUT, when she cuddles up to you and sighs contentedly, or gives you a lick on the nose, your heart will swell with love for her. Noni landed in a shelter after she was abandoned in traffic at the age of 13 yrs, blind and hard of hearing, neglected and too weak to even stand. Noni hasn’t looked back since leaving the shelter. She eats like a little horse, is strong and walking again. She is in very good health overall, mobile (with some limitations) and alert. Noni is a sweet little lady who really loves to cuddle up to her people, she will sleep snuggled under your chin all night and enjoys napping in her bed with a friendly cat. She loves to have a good supervised snoop outdoors for her exercise (as well as regular visits outdoors for her pees and/or a poops). If she’s in wandering around mode indoors or you have to be away from the house for a few hours, just pop a diaper on in order to avoid accidents. She has great difficulty walking on slippery floors as her feet slide out from under her. Noni requires daily brushing – which she adores - and regular visits to a gentle groomer so that her coat does not become matted or overgrown. She has daily eye drops, and arthritis medication as needed. Noni enjoys car rides and would be happy to accompany you everywhere and, at only 12 lbs, that’s easy. If you would like to open your heart and home to a deserving and very special, sweet, senior lady, have a safe and level outdoor area (Noni can’t do stairs), and no-slip flooring or plenty of area rugs placed close together, look no further. Noni is very well suited to a home with cats but she tends to be assertive with other dogs so they have to be tolerant of her bossy antics in order to be a good fit. Gentle, mature older kids in the home would be fine. Her best fit adopters must have experience with senior dogs who require extra attention. show less

Seal was found stray and taken to a shelter. She is about 2 yrs of age, 12 lbs, joyful with a puppy-like enthusiasm and simply adorable. Seal has a classic dachshund body and whip tail but it’s her face that melts hearts, with her wrinkled brow and toothy grin. Despite being clinically blind, Seal navigates her foster home remarkably well, bumping into only the other dogs when they move around. She navigates stairs like a pro, feeling their depth by reaching out with her paws and knows key words so her people can assist with voice instructions. Seal must be able to trust her people to give her accurate instructions, putting her welfare and safety first so that she can enjoy a sense of freedom. She is loyal, loving, very cuddly, playful, extremely food oriented (will leap, spin and bark in the kitchen at meal times), gets the zoomies, and barks to alert if she hears someone approaching the home, or if something is new and scary. In foster she has discovered dog beds, toys, playing with the other dogs, and sleeping in the big bed cuddled up all night with her person. She sometimes shares her bed with a friendly cat or another dog. Seal’s ideal home would be with calm, nurturing people who can intuit life as a blind dog, in a house with a secure and safe outdoor area with no (or safe) stairs so that she can roam and scamper off-leash. Seal would be fine as the only pet in the home with people who are home most of the time. A mellow dog tolerant of being bumped into would be good with careful monitoring or separation at meal and treat times. Dog friendly cats would also be good (can’t risk Seal being swatted in the face by an intolerant cat). Older teens who can provide consistency in safety and instructions also okay. She is not a huge fan of car rides but does well in her booster seat (her safe place in the car). She enjoys quiet neighborhood walks but will do better being carried or riding in a pouch if going on outings further from home where everything is new. She is house trained to pee pads but will go when taken, she may have accidents initially until she learns where she needs to go. You could not ask for a more loving or loyal companion. She is utterly devoted to her people. show less
