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.
DARWIN (Staffordshire Terrier) - large size-
I am an extremely GENTLE and sensitive 3 year old red-nose Staffordshire Terrier. He weighs 65lbs, but everyone says he doesn't look that big! He is always curious about what you are doing- and would love to be your shadow, your lap dog and your napping buddy if it's okay with you. Read More...

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.
If you are interested in meeting Smokey, please "Contact Us".
CHARLIE (Chihuahua mix) - small size-
They say the best things come in small packages...introducing " Little Charlie", barely five pounds of pure delight. Like his namesake the great Charlie Chaplin, little Charlie is a constant source of amusement and laughter. Indeed, if Charlie were to get a job, he would either be a clown or a politician. His playful and impish disposition would be perfect for a circus act. A "take charge" and charismatic personality plus a little sneakiness make him a perfect candidate for public office. A social butterfly,Charlie makes friends whenever he goes, of the four legged and two legged variety. Read More ......

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.
LITTLE BUDDY (Border Collie mix) - medium size-
Little Buddy was wandering in a field near a Native American Reservation area in Palm Springs and rescued by our volunteer. He is appx 2 years old. Black and White color Border Collie mix. He is about 35 lbs and fully grown.

BILBO (Terrier mix) - small size-
BILBO is an adorable, scruffy, grey and brown 5 yr old, 16 lb NEUTERED male Terrier Mix who is people oriented and adores sharing pets and kisses on the lap of his "own special person"! He is quiet and a little shy when he meets new people but warms up in 5-10 min and asks more affection. He is good with children too.BILBO is fine around other dogs but will do great as an only dog. He's not so interested in playing with other dogs but he enjoys being in their company and will lay down next to them when things quiet down. We don't know how he is with cats or other small pets, but we have a feeling he does fine with them. He ignores small animals including a cat when he encounters them during the walk. He has never shown any aggression.BILBO walks great on leash, rides nicely in the car, and is crate trained. Once he learned the routine in his foster home he no longer minds spending time alone.This great guy is quite low maintenance with a low shedding coat. Overall BILBO is a good boy who will make someone a great companion. If you are looking to find a new small sized furry best friend, then look no further than BILBO.
