This pretty dog has been let down by quite a few people in her life. She was found as a stray and taken in by some kindhearted people. She slept in a bed every night with a young girl and loved her time with them but the landlord kicked her out and she ended up at a crowded shelter. Long story short – she made her way to us and is now doing great.
Matilda is a very smart, athletic dog. She will thrive with a structured environment and lots of exercise. Matilda is a rough player and and loves playing hard with other dogs. Her play style is a bit much for most dogs and for that reason we think she would do best as an only dog.
She is crate trained, house trained and walks well on leash. Wed like to find a family with breed experience for Matilda.
Please email us for more information:
Thank you for choosing to adopt and saving a life.

Meet Harper. This beautiful girl was found wandering the desert with a bungee chord embedded in her neck. The shelter staff asked if we could help with her as she needed urgent medical attention and of course we said yes. She’s a 1 year old, 33 lb mix who is described by her fosters as […]
Meet Flynn. This beautiful soul has been at the shelter since September. He’s been patiently waiting for SIX MONTHS. People passed him by because he is 8 years old and has a wonky eye (birth defect and doesn’t bother him at all). SIX months without a soft bed, some good treats, a walk around the […]
Meet Sir Mix-A-Lot. This hilarious mix is a sweetheart. He’s a 2 year old French Bulldog / Pit Mix (our best guess). He is 60 lbs and loves other dogs and people. He’s a low energy dog who would love to lounge around the house with you and take slow stroll around the block. He […]

We saw Turducken’s photo at the Lancaster shelter. She was emaciated and totally shut down. It was clear her former life had been one of neglect and sadness. We wanted to turn things around for her. After we got her the required medical care – she began to put weight on. Her gentle, loving personality […]
