Enjoy scrolling through all of our Frosted Face senior animals who have benefit from our mission at Frosted Faces Foundation.  If you have been following a certain Frosted Face's story and would like to know how he/she is doing, please email us at friends@frostedfacesfoundation.org.

The most recently rescued animals are listed first.  Please make note of animals still looking for families and apply to Foster, Forever Foster, or be their Forever Family.  You can view their biographies and more photos at Available Frosted Faces. You can also help fund their care, by registering as their monthly sponsoring Fan.  To view animals to whom we have fulfilled our promise and read tributes by their families, please go to our Fulfillments page.

Turk

10 year old Turk has lived his entire life in a tiny yard beside a barber shop in LA. His owner was being evicted and planned to bring him to the shelter, but a dog loving neighbor called Hope for Paws and asked for help. In their care Turk got groomed, neutered, had a mass on his backside removed, and an ear hematoma repaired. Imagine this 125 pound matted bear they discovered after living neglected for so long!

Our policy is that we only rescue and support dogs who come from shelters with no advocates who have already been abandoned, however, we are proud that Hope for Paws entrusts us with the care of the dogs they rescue. With that responsibility, we also gratefully accept a generous medical grant which has the potential to cover more than a few major medical procedures for our Frosted Faces. Turk officially became a Frosted Face on January 30th, 2015 and he now lives with and is loved by Forever Foster Family, Corey and Tina Poudrier.

Zeus

We received a plea the morning of March 20th from someone who had found this dog while hiking about a week ago. He was brought to the Carlsbad shelter and waited out his stray hold. The finders knew that he became available on the 20th & due to his difficulty breathing, needed an exit by 5:30pm. 

All we had to do was return the email to ask if the finders would be a Frosted Face Family if we covered medical expenses. I mean, who doesn't want a yorkie?! Spent the afternoon screening them aaaaand...Done!

We picked up 12 year old Zeus from Carlsbad shelter and he happily lives with Gary & Stephanie Gragg!

Denny

On March 18th, 2015 we got an email from San Diego Animal Control saying, "This dog was relinquished for euthanasia, 13 years old...I have no options for him, I am sorry but we can’t keep him past end of business today." 

We presented him to our Frosted Faces Families and asked them to rack their brains for quick options. Well you must remember our late Benny Goodman who moved to Chicago! His Family, Carley King & Tina Saxton, jumped right in and their trip was scheduled to pick up their Frosted Face in two weeks! They already had the name "Denny" picked out for him!

When we went to retrieve him, last stop of the day, he came with AKC breeder papers. A purebred Cairn Terrier. Ugh, sorry kid. No one around here cares what your breed is or how pure. All you are now is a Frosted Face & you are safe & have a Family!

Miss Daisy

Meet 9 year old Miss Daisy (fka Apple Jack) from Carson Shelter. She was surrendered as a stray with a friend, and her friend was rescued in December 2014.  We finally got our hands on her on February 11th, 2015, and she is now a special girl in her new Family's house!

A message from Mom:

"Miss Daisy arrived here fresh out of surgery. She never really recovered and required a second surgery due to a re-herniation. After her second surgery, she did very well and now walks at minimum 1 mile a day with her bigger labrador rescuer "brothers."  When she gets tired, she gets to ride the rest of the 2.5 mile walk in her stroller. She lets me know when she is done because she will sit down and not walk any more. 
She loves to snuggle. When I get home in the evening, I let the dogs out into the yard - even though they have access to a kennel run while I'm away - and when they are done with their business, Miss Daisy runs up to me and rolls over on her back for belly rubs - her favorite thing. If I'm loving on one of the other dogs, she will get on her back and wiggle towards me for attention. She loves car rides. She sits in a doggy booster seat up front in the passenger seat checking out the world while we drive. The big dogs ride in the back seat. She is a hearty eater and has gained nearly 5 lbs since coming to my home. The vet is happy with her weight now and says she shouldn't gain any more. My orders in the beginning were to put some weight on her... 

She is such a little snuggler and likes nothing more than to curl up next to me and nap. She sleeps on my bed at night. She will put her nose under your hand and give it a little shove if you stop petting her before she is ready for you to stop. She is smart and learned the rules of the house very quickly. There aren't all that many rules - no chasing the cats, potty outside or in the kennel run, no barking at crickets or the wind, etc…
She's not much into toys. We have an abundance of them around and we've given new ones since her arrival. She will take a new toy from your hand but then drops it and that's that.

She is a little love. If I'm in the garage doing laundry and I'm missing for 10-15 minutes I'm greeted with a tail wag like I've been gone a long time. "

Annie Mae

12 year old Annie Mae was rescued from Long Beach Shelter on November 16th, 2014.  This little cutesie lives with Family, Emily & Brandon Elliott.

Big things really do come in small packages. When Annie Mae came home, she could barely be 3lbs sopping wet, and we had to show our large dogs that Annie Mae was indeed a dog and not some little furry creature. Annie Mae has found her place within the pack and has laid claim to her 'boy toy' Skipper the chiweenie, who sweetly tolerates her shameless advances.  She hops around him making flirtatious squeaks, cleans his ears, and burrows under blankets with him.  She has an appetite like you wouldn't believe and weighs a whole 4lbs now thanks to FFF removing several rotten teeth! Annie Mae walks on a leash in public like a little boss and when she gets tired she is toted around in a satchel. Bed time is Annie Mae's special time when she gets cuddles all to herself. Just a look in her direction causes her to flip over for belly rubs. Annie Mae is a proper little princess complete with companionship, a fabulous wardrobe, and love for the rest of her days.  The amount of love and joy that this little dog has brought to our lives is immeasurable.

Finnegan

Finnegan was rescued from ARF Harbor Animal Shelter on October 9th, 2014.  Finn is 12 years old and has a lot of fans in his corner!  He is now living in Temecula, CA with his Family, Gail Shirley!

Once she saw Finnegan's shelter photo, just one look at those sad eyes was all it took for his new forever foster mom to drop everything and drive to San Pedro to pick him up. It was love at first sight! As he watched the scenery pass by during his freedom ride to San Diego, Finnegan didn't yet know about the many Frosted Faces Foundation Fans in his corner and the wonderful Forever Family awaiting him, complete with a sister and two brothers.

After receiving a clean bill of health at Lindsey Veterinary Clinic, Finnegan was neutered and then released to his forever foster mom, Gail Shirley, for post-surgery care and lots of tenderness.

His mom writes:

“It didn't take long for the sadness in Finnegan’s eyes to fade away and his expression to reflect the love and security that always should have been his.

Finnegan is a very mellow, gentle, soft-mouthed, and snuggly little boy. He loves to sleep on my bed and curls right up next to me all night long.

Finnegan’s already learned to sit and wait for his food bowl. He eagerly chows down his home-cooked meal, then patiently awaits his turn for treats. We play a game where he has to guess which hand the treat is in, and he's good at it!

His dry itchy skin condition is responding well to a moisturizing spray bought at a local all natural pet food store, and the once shaved hair from his shelter days is growing back in nicely.

Finnegan does well on leash, and enjoys all the sights, sounds, and smells during neighborhood walks. He takes other dogs’ barking in stride and is simply happy to be out in the sunshine and fresh air. He is very friendly and greets everyone with tail-wagging joy and a bright, happy face.

This sweet, loving boy is the perfect addition to our pack. Welcome Home, Finnegan! We Love You!”

Jane

Jane was formerly known as Caro, and we rescued this 15 year old sweetie from Downey Shelter on October 2nd, 2014.  She is living with her loving Family, Terri Garber & sons in San Diego, CA.

Jane's mom writes:

"We had recently lost two of our dogs one to cancer and the other one to old age.  My heart was not ready to add to our family, then I saw Caro, now Jane.  By her video she looked very fragile and I did not think she had much time left.  I knew this girl needed to be part of our family. I did not want her dying in the shelter alone and unloved. 

Kelly picked her up from the shelter and texted me, 'I think she is pregnant and she seems much younger than 15.' Okay, I had fostered a Momma with babies before, so I told her it was okay. I think I was still in shock.

The next day I met Jane at the vet. She definitely has had puppies before, but was not pregnant. Yeah, just a fatty!  She had a recent dental by her previous owner…how strange! She needed to be spayed and mammary tumors removed.  She has lots of lumps and bumps on her body! 

Jane is not the fragile little thing I thought she was. Although the vet said she is old and does not see well.  She is a very vibrant sweet terrier with a bit of an attitude.  She will tell her sisters and brother, those young ones, that they need to show some respect. 

Her days are spent sleeping in. She is a very sound sleeper and 'velcro dog' to Mom.  Jane would eat all day if she was allowed!  She likes her social time, and loves to lay on top of her toys.

She sleeps on her pink blanket at the top of her mom's bed. By the end of the night she has pushed her mom to the edge of the bed. 

She lives with two other senior dogs, Jennie, an 11 year old shepherd and Jaeger, a ten year old min pin, plus a 3 year old dog, Jesse, a Staffie/Heeler mix who tries to herd all of us like sheep. She was two human brothers also."

Bug

Not all dogs are lucky enough to have owners take the time to surrender them to the shelter (Wait! Does that even make sense?!) -for a possible rescue, of course. 

This lucky girl, Bug, caught our eye as soon as our friend  Wendy Nelson created awareness of her and took responsibility for her care. While we waited for a solid foster, as she was on our list of "Prospective Frosted Faces," Wendy vetted her with the help of some FFF donations. 

Poor Bug has been through a heck of a life. She is an older girl (about 10 years old!) who was found in the bushes, pushing fluid and acting like she was in labor. The California City Animal Shelter Page was called to pick her up and she was taken to the shelter. Sadly poor Bug was just dollar signs to some irresponsible, selfish human being. We learned through the grapevine that her name is Bug. We learned she had been in labor since Thursday (August 28, 2014) and she was found on TUESDAY Sept 2, 2014! 
Bug was not comfortable and was bleeding. It felt like she had babies in there but we guessed they must be dead. 

Well at the end, Bug was rushed to the vet on Wednesday Sept 3, 2014 where they did an emergency spay. She had no puppies in her, thankfully, but she did have many cysts and lesions in her uterus and also had signs of at least one but likely several C-Sections. This poor girl has been through a lot of neglect. 

This dog suffered because of humans, but Bug was released from the vet and arrived at her true Family's house! Bug gets to be the baby now with forever fosters Adriana & Ricardo Vargas! They love her!

Red

8 year old Red was rescued from Harbor Shelter in San Pedro on September 7th, 2014.  Red is living the big dog-big heart, slobbery kisses, and family wrestles life with Family, Quentin & Kelllee Tomlinson.

Our meatloaf, Red, is so loved!

"Red is an amazing 8 year old senior Staffordshire Terrier, who is approximately 80 pounds of sheer love and delight!

Red is a fan of long snuggles, warm kisses and belly rubs!

Red loves to take walks to the end of the street and back, which is okay because his momma doesn't mind. She'll walk him 'til the end of the street several times a day as he refuses to turn the corner!

Red loves loves loves to sleep and you can always tell when he is soaking up some ZZZzzzzz's because he snores louder than any person his momma ever met!

Red isn't always active, but you better bet your bottom dollar that when his momma gets home he runs and jumps as if he were a young buck again! He twirls in a huge circles wagging his tail the whole way. Occasionally he will jump up like a kid!

Red has a huge fan club on Facebook, Frosted Faces Foundation, and in the neighborhood. He is a head turner and everywhere we go people want to know about Red.

Red's past life is a bit hazy but some of his behaviors are consistent with some sort of abuse. Red never lets that stop him from loving and giving his all to his new forever home!

Red loves to play with his toys, and on occasion Mom has to buy more because Red gets a 'lil excited and leaves his toys in tatters.

Red loves to be outside. You can find him with his nose in the mud rooting around for something! He loves to lay in momma's flower bed too.

Red is very emotional and you can read his feelings across his face. It's so cute when he doesn't understand, he will cock his head and look at you in bewilderment.

Red has a best friend, Cinnabon, my rescue Kitty. He loves her so much and won't go to bed unless he can see her the whole night. This relationship is very cute and took about a week to transpire.

Lastly. Red is a champ who was saved by Frosted Faces Foundation and Paul Hupp. They believed in him when nobody else did and they spent countless hours arranging his journey to his forever home. Red is the best thing that has happened to my family in a long time and he is truly loved and adored. We are thankful for Red. Many say we saved him but he saved us."

Mr. Man

10 year old Mr. Man was rescued from Orange County Animal Care & Control on September 3rd, 2014.   MM lives with Frosted Face sister, Joey, and Briscoe all thanks to Mom, Paula Rushton!

Mr. Man:  part terrier, part chihuahua, part Tasmanian devil.  What he lacks in leg length he makes up for with enthusiasm and sass! He is working on learning to contain his excitement when he sees other doggies out in the big world, he gets wound up and winds up with his siblings' other leashes. He is smart and figuring out that mellowing out is best and produces treats.

He loves chasing balls in the yard and receiving belly scratches; a fun little dog who enjoys his comfy bed when it is time for rest.  He is safe, cared for and loved!Forever Foster, Paula Rushton, writes:
"He lives with fellow FF dogs Joey & Tully and a fourth dog, Briscoe.  Mr. Man showed signs of neglect and may not have been treated to kindly in his previous home. He was probably an outdoor-onlydog who then lost his pal when she didn't make it out of the shelter (they were separated and FF didn't know he came in with another dog until it was too late).

Mr. Man: part terrier, maybe part chihuahua, possibly part mini Tasmanian devil.  What he lacks in leg length he makes up for with enthusiasm!  He works on controlling his excitement when he sees other doggies on walks; he spins, gets all wound up and winds up with his siblings' leashes wrapped around his little body. 

He prefers to relax on a raised bed in the shade outside but then LOVES LOVES LOVES bed time: he hops up with those short little legs, snuggles and doesn't move until morning.  He is safe, cared for and loved."

Shadow

Shadow is somewhat of a mystery dog. This calm 10 year-old female German Shepherd mix has a mostly black body with the beautiful white coloring old age tends to bring. Her soulful brown eyes and salt-and-pepper face are quite mesmerizing, hiding the fact that she has a slight dent on the top right side of her head from a terrible ear infection.

Despite being an owner surrender at North Central Shelter-Los Angeles, we sadly have no information on Shadow's past. Why anyone would give this sweet girl up is a total mystery to us! The only thing not completely amazing about Shadow is that she has a slightly stiff gait. But what 10-year old doesn't have a little joint pain? She doesn't seem to be too bothered by it and walked very gently on her leash. Sweet Shadow doesn't need much to make her happy – a little walk, a little play, and lots of love!  She sits contently at her mom's feet, and nudges her mom's hand in the morning to make her up to go potty!  

We rescued Shadow on July 26th, 2014, with the persistent networking and coordination of Cynthia Dofton, Claudia Garcia, and Erin Barker.  Want to know the best part?!  With so many newlyweds buying puppies after tying the know, Shadow's Family was a newlywed couple of 3 weeks!  A huge thank you to rockstar Family Kelly and Mike Hayes for making such a selfless decision to add a SENIOR baby to your new relationship!

Notes from Mom:

"She loves attention, I feel like I could pet her all day long and it still wouldn't be enough. If we are laying on the couch she loves to walk by and just lick our faces and then walk away - we call it a drive by.  Shadow lives up to her name and completely follows me around the house (like a shadow, haha)!

If I leave the house and Mike is still home (so she isn't in the crate), she lays down on the bottom landing near the door and waits for me <3

She loves walks! She also loves going to the park and chasing the tennis ball. She usually has to wait until Jack is tired enough so she can actually get one.  She is great at the dog park. She doesn't quite play, but loves to sniff butts and greet all the people at the park for a scratch or two.  Since her TECO-BO surgery, she visibly has more energy and almost plays with Jack when she gets excited.  She is scared of the cat, But will sometimes get the courage to sniff him.

Shadow is fully housebroken now - the only time she pees is if she is really excited!  "

Niko

10421541_783772618351957_3864470634672847439_n.jpg

Two weeks ago, while I was rescuing sweet Ellie, I stood with 9 year old Niko's dad in the Carson Shelter parking lot pleading for him to come up with alternative options other than to relinquish him and his sister. I warned him that to surrender Niko & Cleo was a death sentence. He took the time to call home, sat in the car and reconsidered…then I saw him march them two in. My heart sank. He gave me the guilty eyes as I watched, and then he came over to me and I repeated, "It's a death sentence." His response, "I know, it sucks." He claimed they were building a pool, they had a newborn baby, and they just had too much going on.

We went on a mission to find a Family for Niko, and on July 20th, 2014 we rescued him! We worked closely with Pickle Pants Rescue to ensure that Niko's sister, Cleo, got rescued too.  Niko arrived to us itchy, but in otherwise great health!  He got neutered and his teeth cleaned, and he is now living with his loving family, Bethany Moore, Darryl Burce, and Leon.

Joey

Joey, (fka Reese) was a 10 year old owner surrender we rescued from Carson Shelter on July 11th, 2014.  Thanks to Carey Nagoda for transporting her to us! Poor Joey was a hot mess! She had a chronic ear infection in both ears, green discharge from her eyes, multiple cysts and scabs, limited vision, and an endocrine disease. All of this aside from the obvious skin condition causing her crazy itchiness and neglected grooming. Look at those mats! 

When she first arrived she was very untrusting, and growled at the unfamiliar hand.  After being cleaned up and exploring the house, she was begging to jump on our laps!  She has gone to Fiesta Island, and has miraculous recall for being unfamiliar and blind! Her new mom says she loves standing on her favorite bench in the yard, watching everything, and is slowly learning the doggie door!  She is spunky and curious, but also loves to cuddle. We know that life will only get better from here for sweet Joey!  Her rescue was made possible because Paula Rushton offered to be her new Family!

Forever Foster, Paula Rushton, writes:
"Poor Joey was a hot mess! She had a chronic ear infection in both ears, green discharge from her eyes, multiple cysts and scabs, limited vision, and an endocrine disease. All of this aside from an obvious skin condition causing her crazy itchiness and neglected grooming. 

Joey continues to struggle with allergy issues but her mom tries hard to find a good balance between medications, baths, proper foods and good old TLC.  Joey is, ahem, "spirited".  She is not a shrinking violet and will probably never be described as mellow or easy going - she is Joey, she likes things a certain way and that way better be Joey's way!  She is loved by her person, Paula Rushton, and tolerated (ha ha) by the rest of the pet family: fellow FFs Mr. Man & Tully, a fourth dog named Briscoe and a very patient cat, Peaches."

Charlie

10509720_1502813759937116_594390682480285853_n.jpg

We rescued 13 year old Charlie (fka Skippy) the 5th of July, 2014.  We had been waiting for a foster to step up for him for over a month, while he waited in Downey Shelter.  As the worst holiday for pets approached, the 4th of July, we knew is days were numbered.  Sure enough, he was scheduled to be euthanized on the 5th for space!! Thanks to coordination by Pamela Yin and Ruth Silny, Charlie got out and was transported by Leighanne Spinney to us!  At nearly midnight the night before, our good friends David & Patricia Mihalko decided they wanted to be his Family, which gave us the capability to rescue him.  

Charlie's teeth were worn, he had flaky skin and flea dermatitis on his backside, and a terrible ear infection.  He was treated at Lindsey Veterinary Clinic, and then approved to be neutered and get a dental cleaning!

Charlie's new mom says: "Charlie has blended into our pack very well. He loves to check everything out like an inquisitive boy! He loves being inside rather than outside. He just likes to go out to do his business then paws at the door to cube back in. Charlie loves following me around the house or laying down at my feet. Charlie is very treat motivated so he was quick to learn sit, lay down, and high five! As soon as the treat bowl moves he's right there ready for "sit".  He likes to take walks around the neighborhood and is great on the leash! NOTHING seems to phase him! Other dogs barking, skateboarders, bikes, people, etc. He has a gentle soul...and he loves giving doggie kisses! I must add that he likes when I sing him to sleep!  I was singing to him last night and he snuggled into my lap and went to sleep."
