Buster Brown
Polly, our polydactyl has finally found her forever home. All six toes up to you Polly. And Boo, the Chiweenie didn’t take long to wiggle his way into the heart and arms of his new human.

It’s puppy love! Wrap your heart around this bundle of fur that was rescued from the streets of Idyllwild. Buster Brown is a 16-week-young boxer/pit mix. Along with puppy kisses upon request, this smart boy is already in clicker training class. His first report card is A+, as the basic commands were a piece of cake for him. He is learning leash rules, and is great with all other four-leggeds, 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 areas in between, loves food, but most of all she likes to just flash those great eyes and make you fall in love.

Miss Feather
Look what the wind blew in! Weighing in at about 5 pounds, you’ll never even know she’s on your lap. Introducing Miss Feather who was found wandering on Highway 243. Quite the agile girl, she is young, energetic, loving and full of tricks. We believe she is a powder puff Chinese crested mix. We know she is just a sweetheart.

Only two kitties are 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.
