Boo Boo's back story:


Bougainvillea was one of 12 dogs in a hoarding case that entered the San Diego Humane Society.  She had been at their Behavior Center for 4 months learning to be less timid---that's when we rescued her.


If interested in Bougainvillea these are the steps:

1.  Read her bio carefully to make sure she's the right dog for you and you meet the adoption requirements.  We spend a lot of time trying to accurately describe our dogs in their bios so you can help decide if the dog may be right for you.

2.  Fill out an adoption app from our website here:

3.  If it looks like a promising match we'll contact you within 72 hours of receiving your application.    We're a very small volunteer-based rescue taking care of lots of animals so we don't have time to contact everyone who applies or respond to all inquires.  We're very sorry and we're hoping this will change soon.  Lastly, our animals are in foster care---we're not an animal shelter so meet & greets are by invitation.


Have a great day, and thanks for your interest!
