Buddy is a handsome 6-year-old Jindo who was brought to the Mission Viejo Animal Services Center after his owner unexpectedly passed away. When he first arrived at the shelter, it was clear Buddy was scared and grieving the loss of his best friend.

Mission Viejo Animal Services Center staff spent days working with him to help regain his confidence, and slowly Buddy began to trust again. He has since come out of his shell and is a well-behaved, loving and playful dog. He enjoys running around the yard playing with tennis balls and squeaky toys. He has been working on his leash manners and is doing very well.  Buddy enjoys learning new tricks.  He is smart, loyal, independent and extremely affectionate once he knows you. He would do best in a home with older children (or none) and would prefer to be the only pet.

Champion is a cute little Schipperke mix that we rescued from a crowded shelter. He is around four years old and has since been neutered, microchipped and is current on his vaccines. He is such a loving and gentle dog, he is very submissive too. His favorite thing is to roll on his back for belly rubs. He seems to like other dogs and has a few friends he likes to play with at the shelter. Champion is fairly mellow, but he has a fun and playful side to him as well! He does seem a little sad here at times, probably from going to different shelters while he waits for his forever home. Champion is an easy low maintenance dog who is waiting just for you!
