Ace went in to see Dr Dhupa and unfortunately we found out not only does he have hip dysplasia in both hips, but also both his knees are bad ('ruptured anterior cruciate ligament') :[ At 9 years old and all four of the joints in his hind quarters in such horrible shape, there really isn't anything we can do except get the weight off him, give him pain meds, and whatever else we can think of to manage pain (acupuncture, etc) to keep him comfortable. Ace doesn't let a little thing like that hold him back though - he is a happy happy boy, LOVES the ball, and barking (happy barking, look at me barking, pay attention to me barking ;] ). He is a very social boy, likes to be near wherever you are, has been fine with the other dogs as long as they ignore his 'claiming' things - be it a toy, the water bucket, the person he is next to - he doesn't do it every time, and the group of dogs I have right now totally ignore his attitude about this and he no longer does it with them. I wouldn't trust him with cats - he likes to bark at mine and if the cat runs, he realllly wants to chase it - doesn't matter to him that he is falling down in a mad scramble to go after it - actually nothing seems to bother him over much, unless it is a lack of attention ;] He has lost about 10 pounds to so far - was 74 on intake at the shelter and weighed in at 63 at his vet visit, so he's on his way with the weight loss! If anyone is interested in adopting Ace, drop me an email at email@example.com -- Here's a short video of Ace with a ball.
"STAR" is a 7 year old spayed female Border Collie who is looking for a loving home that she can lavish her affection on and would really like to be able to sleep on your bed (with or without you). She is housebroken, not destructive at all, prefers to be inside, walks well on the leash, knows some basic obedience and a few tricks - very food motivated! She has the normal herding breed reservedness at first meeting strangers, not barky at all, just need to give her a bit of time to warm up. She is fine with other dogs, not interested in playing with them, but fine being around them. Has not been around cats, but she is a pretty low-key girl and may be okay if your cat is used to dogs and is monitored at first. No idea on kids, so we will not be placing her in a home with small children. If you are interested in lovely girl, please fill out our adoption application: http://www.aussierescuesocal.com/applications/adoption-application/ If we have your adoption application on file, you can call Karyl @ 951-961-7575.

Manny is a 4 year old neutered male Australian Shepherd. He is a big boned blue merle at about 70 pounds. He is a friendly, bold and outgoing boy. He would do best in a home as the only dog. Although he has dog friends he would be too pushy for a multi dog home. He is all dog. He would like a home with no cats, and because he wasn't raised around children, a child-free home is recommended. Training Manny is fun but requires a relationship with an Aussie savvy handler. The tug and treat method will not work for him without a mutually respectful and rewarding relationship. He is not hyper but does need an active owner who wants to hike, walk, bike and or swim with him, he will not be happy as a bored house pet. Our Behavior Specialist, Farren Mahone at Board N Behave, is offering a free training session, valued at $125.00, upon adoption. If you are interested in Manny, please fill out our adoption application: http://www.aussierescuesocal.com/applications/adoption-application/ - if you have one on file already, please email Karyl: firstname.lastname@example.org (Wildomar area) Check out Manny swimming at the beach! http://youtu.be/MHwUDFA3id8

"BANDIT" is a Shepherdy mix neutered male, about 8 years old, that loves people! He is great with other dogs, all sizes, but a little too interested in cats to be trusted. He is a sweetheart that is looking for a loving home to call his own. He was rescued out of a high kill shelter after no one came for him or adopted him, the skin around his nose and eyes were a mess. We had him seen by the vet and was he was diagnosed with discoid lupus. He is currently on 2 different meds that run about $10 a month and has healed up beautifully, feels great and is still plenty active for his age.
