old. Lenny is what you would call, a limited edition, one of a kind! He can be
classified as a universal lover mutt! Lenny came to us listed as a male, but after noticing a vital part of his anatomy missing along with a really bad bladder infection......we found out that Lenny's appendage was removed! For 8 months we could not find out why until one day his rescuer reached out to us and told us that she found poor Lenny on the street one day and had a really bad bladder infection with bladder stones. It was so bad that he could no longer urinate and needed a really expensive rare surgery to save his life. So she searched high and low to find a shelter or rescue who could help him and she did! The Upland Shelter took Lenny in and performed the surgery to save him.
Age: 1 year
Oran is a sweet and shy boy who survived horrific conditions in a large hoarding case in Tehachapi, Ca. He and 160 other dog’s were seized from a single family home. The dogs, although well fed, were living in filth and disease with little socialization. Several of the dog’s were euthanized due to injuries and major health issues. Oran was one of the lucky dogs to be pulled into Rescue.
Oran has started his recovery in foster care. He’s slowly coming out of his shell and his time in the Pawsitive Change program will help boost his confidence so he can find a forever home. He’ll do best in a quiet, calm house with someone who can give him the time to adjust and continue his socialization. He loves cheese, gets along great with other dogs and is both crate and house trained.
Oran has learned a lot at prison and graduated with his Canine Good Citizen certificate. He’s a sweet and shy boy just waiting to find the perfect family of his very own. Apply to bring Oran home to your family.
Lilo is a 3-year-old Staffordshire bull terrier that was kept as what we call a “backyard” breeder. She birthed countless puppies for her owners, no doubt bringing in a serious amount of cash for said owners. Her owners moved and left her behind. Alone. After years of faithfully providing an income for them. Just left her behind. In the backyard. The landlord eventually had to call animal control to have her removed from the property.
The only evidence that she had had a home was the choke chain collar still around her neck. Lilo found a foster home with Randi and came in full of hope and mega wiggles. Dog kibble in a bowl was a surprising delight each time it was presented to her. Being bathed was a spa like experience, as was rubbing balm into her cracked paws and nose. Air conditioning, quiet surroundings and a plush bed did not go unnoticed or unappreciated.
She is quickly becoming a well-balanced, gently mannered dog and is going to be a HUGE (literally and figuratively) asset to a lucky family someday soon.
Lilo’s precious family cruelly abandoned her, plain and simple. Now that she is a Mutt, she has the power of “Ohana” on her side. Because Ohana means family and family means nobody gets left behind or forgotten. Randi has promised Lilo that she personally will see to it that she is never left behind or forgotten again. Her personality continues to shine. Her newest trick? Holding the leash in her mouth and walking herself. Silly girl!
She does have some nodules in her mammory glands and may need a mastectomy in the near future which we will keep you posted on but all in all she is doing well.
