Meet Kelala!

Kelala is a darling 3 year old neutered red rough boy. He is housetrained and knows how to use a dog door. He is overweight at 20 pounds, loves to play fetch, walks on a leash and is friendly and outgoing. Kelala is looking for his forever home. He is located in Southern California.

If you would like more information, contact Carole Ross. If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application.

Keep in mind that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger.

Kelala has been Adopted!

From Kelala's new Mom:

Kelala is a joy. He is so spunky, cool, funny and mellow at the same time. He took to our home like a hothouse flower to the perfect greenhouse. He and Ester our pug became instant pals. They switch beds and toys and run around outside with me watching. Toby told me that since Kelala had been neglected outdoors he didn't like to go outside much, but at our house he just loves the yard. He and Ester go out several times a day and he's truly enjoyed exploring among the flowerbeds and lawn. He barks at me when I leave the house and barks at my son when he closes the door to his room. He's aware that we love him and that he wants to be around us.

Kelala is a great walker and very easygoing when I take him places. Yesterday I took him on a pretty long walk (about half a mile) and he just kept going, pulling at the leash the whole time. Then I took him to the screening of the first cut of a movie at a director's house. The little furball just chilled out on the rug and made everyone love him. He tends to scratch a bit, and he's having trouble figuring out how to eat around Ester (she figured out that if she eats really fast she can get his food before he does), but I got the idea to send my husband out for a walk and then I feed him. Even with this he tends to just stare at the bowl (so different from my food-driven glutton-pug) but tonight I actually fed him by hand and he ate an entire bowl of food. He needed to lose a little weight anyway, but I don't want it to get out of hand.

I feel that this whole experience-- finding him, meeting Toby, having to wait and then being obsessed with his little Ewok face and finally adopting him-- was minor miracle and a blessing.

So thanks to you, Carole, and thanks to Toby, and good luck on all the great work you do.

Warm regards,
