Hello, I'm Painter,
He is a 2 year old, male, Labrador Retriever / German Shepherd Mix (He may have a tad Husky and Sharpei). He is healthy, neutered and vaccinated.
Painter is a true rescue dog, he was picked up off the streets of Los Angeles after 3 months of fending for himself. A rescue tried to catch him with no luck only to finally be picked up by animal control and brought to Downey shelter, where we rescued him.
He arrived thin, fearful and had pneumonia. Painter must have endured abuse by a male, so he does need time to build trust with men. He seems to warm up to woman quicker, but is still timid and fearful. Painter has come a long way and is more trusting than ever before. He will need a family that will understand his past, be patient and loving until Painter can open up and trust.
He’s incredibly smart and will be the most amazing dog to whoever gives him time, compassion, love and is patient. So if you think that you can open your heart and provide him with a forever, please fill out an application so that we can schedule a meet and greet.
If adoption isn’t an option, please consider fostering one of our pups. We are a volunteer run, non-profit dog rescue and always welcome new, short and/or long term doggie foster families. We greatly appreciate the help and time of our fosters. You provide all the love, comfort and safety of a home and we supply you with everything else you may need, dog food, dog bed, toys, medical attention (if needed) etc. If you are interested please complete the Foster Application.
