Thank you so much for being interested in our dogs. Most of our rescued dogs are living in foster care. DOGzHAUS places dogs into foster homes after they have spent several weeks or months at the shelter without being adopted. This gives the dog a chance to recover from the stress of being kenneled, while providing space in the kennel for a new dog. Additionally, the foster volunteer has the opportunity to work with the dog to correct some of the behavior problems that may have led to the dog's surrender.
The more fosters we have, the more dogs we can rescue/save. If you can't adopt a dog, please consider being a foster. If you can't foster, please consider donating to the fund (any amount will be appreciated). DOGzHAUS depends entirely upon donations to continue saving lives.
The dogs on the list below are currently living in foster care (Mynka is at the boarding kennel) For more information, please go to our contact page and ask us!
You can also check our available dogs on ADOPT A PET website:
Please check out our available dogs below. We have several dogs who are not available yet because they were just rescued from the shelter, are still in medical condition or are still in training condition. Those dogs are getting treatment/training at their foster care and will be posted on this page as soon as they are ready for the adoption. If you don't find any dogs you are interested in, please contact us or come back to this page later.
Smokey is 8 years old, neutered male German Shepherd who was rescued from local high kill shelter in Los Angeles. 80 pounds. He came to the shelter as Owner Surrender. He knows many commands, walks well on leash, loves car rides and is very smart. He was perfectly trained as a guard dog so he needs a handler who has a deep knowledge of this breed and a lot of experience.

OLIVER (Terrier mix) -small size-
Oliver is appx 2 years old, neutered male, terrier mix. He is very shy at the beginning but warms up soon. Once he warms up, he will stay on your lap and enjoys affection. He gets along with other dogs very well. He is currently at his foster home and lives with some other small dogs and large dogs. About 15 lbs.
Neutered male. Approximately 70lbs. UTD on shots, micro-chipped and crate trained. We believes he's about 3 yrs old. Great with
dogs of all sizes, cats, and everyone he has met.
He originally came to the shelter as a stray dog at the end of June. Someone adopted him from the shelter in early October... For
some reason, about a week after he adopted Lenny, he came back to the shelter and adopted one more shepherd as his second dog. She was dog aggressive and it didn't turn out well for Lenny.
ATHENA (German Shepherd)- large size-
A gentle Athena is very sweet and loves people and other dogs. The shelter said she was 11 years old but we are guessing she might be about 7-8 years old. She is currently receiving the vet treatment for her paw injury and also has a minor hip dysplasia. She walks well and enjoys her play time. She has a mellow personality. About 65 lbs and needs to gain at least 10 more pounds.
