Mancha decided to take a little stroll, but was quickly reunited with her very worried owner. As was Harab, the friendly white Pitbull. Paws up to you both.

Buster Brown
Bentley, aka Bronson, the chocolate American Staffordshire is now in a trial home. A big bow wow for Lulu, who has finally found her forever home.

It’s the week of love, and our hearts go out to the family of Greta, who passed over the rainbow bridge, the broken hearts will take a long time to heal with the loss of our special Sophie. We will always remember her smile and the way she sat so pretty.

It’s puppy love! Wrap your heart around this bundle of fur that was rescued from the streets of Idyllwild. Buster Brown is a 12-week-young boxer-pit mix. Along with giving puppy kisses upon request, this smart boy is already in training. His first report card was A+, as the basic commands were a piece of cake for him. He is learning leash rules, and is great with all other cats and dogs.

Abandoned in the ARF yard, Nellie is our sweetheart senior papillon mix. She’s had her diva day at the groomers, so get that pretty pillow ready for this pretty girl. She’ll sing for her supper, and then snuggle in for a good nap. Nellie likes a slow walk, with rest in between. She also loves food. But most of all she likes to just flash those great eyes and make you fall in love with her.

Only two kitties left from the Girl Scout litter! True love for a lifetime is waiting for you at ARF. Spit and Fire will bring laughter and warmth to your heart.
