Boo Boo is...

  • Very Playful

  • LOVES stuffed toys

  • Affectionate with her foster mom

  • LOVES playing with other small dogs (see videos).  She lives in a foster home with 5 other dogs ranging in size from 7 lbs to 15 lbs.  She has not been around large dogs.

  • Would do best in a home with another young playful dog.  This type of home is preferred.

  • Crate trained

  • Potty pad trained

  • Very treat motivated

  • Very afraid of new people (she was a hoarding case dog---see below for details)

  • Walks well on a leash with a harness

  • Lives in a foster home with parrots and doesn't pay attention to them

  • Has not been with cats under our care so we don't know how she is with them

  • Toy Poodle/some type of terrier mix.  She appears to be low to no shedding

  • 22 months old

  • 9 lbs

  • Microchipped

  • Shots up to date

  • Healthy

  • All medical paperwork provided

  • San Diego residents only

  • One adult home.  Two adult home may be considered.  No children.

  • Adoption fee $150

The San Diego Humane Law Enforcement confiscated Bougainvillea from a 12 dog hoarding situation when she was just 8 months old.  She spent 4 months at the San Diego Behavior Center being trained to be more confident.  We rescued her from there believing a foster home environment, rather than a kennel environment, would be best for her.  She's grown to love and trust her foster mom, and she enjoys playing with the dogs in her foster home.

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 (copy & paste this hyperlink into your browser):

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.
