ADOPTED ON 12-03-16 – We receive an urgent plea in our email that yanks at the hearts from an owner: “LOST DOG” Please keep looking for our beloved dog…..
“FOUND” this dog was found and if not claimed in five days…….
We quickly pass it on to all our friends, family and tag as many Facebook pages as we can, but we rarely ever know if the dog was found, yet, we keep trying. Beth’s story is the “Found” story; her owners “Lost Dog” plea was never located but we are sure that she was loved and owned by someone.
On Beth’ rescue day she was lucky to be noticed by one of our partner volunteers that go to the shelter daily to walk, medicate, kiss and hug the dogs—they were probably on their lunch hour. One of them told us: “Beth was someone’s much-loved pet before she came to us.” She said she “was working at the facility the day the police brought Beth in. Since the policeman didn’t have a dog crate in his truck, he had Beth tied with a rope in the bed of the truck. She was just waiting patiently for the policeman to get her out of the truck. On the first day that she laid eyes on Beth, she was in perfect shape, was well mannered and already spayed. She just knew that her original owner would have found her/us by now, but unfortunately, that has not happened.”
We can only imagine how broken hearted her original owners must be. For Beth’s sake, we must help her move on now, her southern foster tried for a long time to find them; she hugs, kisses, walks, feeds and cares for the Beth and her other foster dogs, with her own money and only asks that Beth find a good home. Rescue Dog Village is fortunate to work with such loving and giving partners, they have a genuine rescue passion for death row dogs.
Beth is a beautiful 4 year old, 50 pound Terrier currently living in a foster home in LA, her foster mom absolutely loves her. Though no one knows her history, as she was picked up by animal control and brought to the pound, her foster has had her for about a year and a half and knows what a sweet girl she is. Her foster mom tells us that she may have lived in a house previously because she is familiar with stairs and riding in a car. She has been nothing but friendly and loving to any adults she meets, as well as children. Malcolm is the newest pen mate that has been introduced to Beth. He is only 3-5 months old, when she sniffed Malcolm through the fence she accepted him without any problems. Then, when Malcolm entered the pen, again, Beth was curious and only sniffing him so she could get to know who he was.
This dog cannot be adopted to Massachusetts residents due to new laws
regarding rescue dogs being prohibited from adoption.
Please contact Patricia Cabral at: 617-626-1786 or
Mike Cahill at: 617-626-1794 for questions regarding what dogs you are allowed to adopt.
LA is warm most of the year and many dogs live outside like Beth. Therefore, it is unknown whether or not she is housebroken. It has been our experience that dogs that have lived outside are easier to house train because they have always go outside. We would love her to find a home where she can be an indoor dog. Sometimes after walks she will walk up the back steps, stop and look up at the door, then look as if to say, “Why don’t you open the door and let me go in?” Beth deserves a warm, safe home to walk into and lie down with her forever family. Unfortunately, because there are cats in the house, her foster does not know how she will react so Beth is unable to come in the house. She currently lives in a 10” x 20” pen with two other dogs and gets along well with them and other pen mates that have come and gone.
A good day for Beth is going for a long walk. She loves to walk in the corn rows by her foster house. The corn has been cut for several weeks now but she loves to sniff out whatever scents she can – whether it is raccoons, possums, etc. She always finds something interesting to smell. After her walk, she will jump in the kiddie pool to cool off. She doesn’t lay down in the pool but instead just walks around and cools off her feet. After that, Beth and her pen mates get some one on one loving time.
As well as loving long walks, while Beth is in her pen, she will sleep in her dog house. If she sees a bird fly by she will start barking at the bird. She loves chasing rabbits and frogs, too. She also barks at other dogs that run free. That’s because they sometimes run at her pen and antagonize her. She likes to chew on nylon bones while in her pen relaxing. She eats once a day, loves treats, and has no problem being in a crate. When she does go in the car, she enjoys sitting in the back seat and is very well-behaved.
Beth’s foster is still working with her leash skills and walks her with a harness. When she starts pulling too hard, she is given a slight correction and she responds. Her foster mom would love to see her living as an indoor dog and sleeping right alongside her new family because she deserves it. A perfect home for her would have a large fenced in yard so she could have the opportunity to run, explore, and play. However, if the family is active and hikes or runs, she would love that too.
Beth is ABSOLUTLEY LOVED by her foster mom but it would not be doing right by her to keep her where she is. She is very loving and very beautiful, and deserves a loving home. She has proved to everyone that she is truly a great dog. She has so much love to give. Her foster mom hopes that a family with lots of love will take a chance on a middle-aged dog and give her the opportunity to love them back.
Beth always is looking for a hug and a smile. She is a very smart, athletic, wonderfully affectionate girl. She loves to explore, play, and always ready for affection. She is one of life’s little cheerleaders that has overcome many hardships but is always ready to be by your side. Beth is an old soul and will make a great friend that will provide unequaled love to her person, a devotion that we have seen in few dogs. A commitment to a dog is a serious responsibility, however, one that will be one of the most pleasant experiences in your life—this girl is special and if that is what you are looking for your search has ended.

- Always teach children how to approach and touch dogs
- Always supervise any interactions between dogs and young children to prevent any biting or ear or tail pulling on the part of either party.
- Teach your child never to approach any dog while he’s eating or sleeping or to try to take the dog’s food away. No dog, no matter how friendly, should ever be left unsupervised with a child.
- Children need to be taught how to approach and touch dogs, and always supervise any interactions between dogs and young children.
- No dog should ever be left unsupervised with a child because often-young children don’t understand that a cute little dog, or any dog, might not want “love and kisses.”
- Never let young children pick up a puppy or small dog. Instead, make them sit on the floor with the dog in their lap. Pay attention to the dog’s body language, and put him safely in his crate if he appears to be unhappy or uncomfortable with the child’s attention.
- Always teach children how to approach and touch dogs, and always supervise any interactions between dogs.
- Teach your child never to approach any dog while he’s eating or sleeping or to try to take the dog’s food away. No dog should ever be left unsupervised with a child.
- Be prepared dogs will protect themselves
- Most important, it is your responsibility to make sure that your children and the dog are supervised at all times and safe. You cannot leave it up to the dog, the dog is an animal and will behave like an animal. They rely on us to guide and protect them, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
- THIS IS YOUR JOB, NOT THE DOG
