adopt us.


Ralph was a stray and brought to the city shelter. We rescued him in July 2021. He is approximately 10 years old and weighs 82 lbs. Ralph has had some adoption interest, however, Ralph is a heavy breather, and with his big head, he just doesn't seem all that attractive/domesticated/manageable to potential adopters until he chills out after intros.

Ralph is a mega babe! He is so adaptable. He isn't excessively barky, he enjoys long naps and lying in your lap for belly rubs, he is extremely food motivated and can defy gravity for a juicy steak. He is so soft, calm, cuddly and chill. Ralph is the epitome of what you imagine a rescue dog to be— so happy and grateful to have a warm bed and friendly person to snuggle up with and he is so rewarding to love!

Ralph is wonderful with other dogs. He currently enjoys a 'play yard' with both males and females of various sizes and has gone to lots of adoption events and was also in a 2-week-foster home with another dog, kids (he actually loves kids) and all humans.

Ralph is neutered and up to date on vaccines and heartworm preventative.

Ralph can be adopted anywhere in the US so long as his adopters come to pick him up at Frosted Faces HQ in San Diego County, CA. If he is adopted locally, 100% of his medical care is covered for the rest of his life through Frosted Faces veterinarians! A free senior dog!

Interested adopters should fill out an application. Potential adopters can visit the @frostedfacesfacility any Saturday or Sunday from 10AM to 1PM for Open House to meet Ralph."

Meet Pretzel, a 12.5 year old pug. Pretzel was found as a stray walking down the streets of New York City and landed safely in the care of the local shelter. Due to his age and some health issues he arrived with, the shelter put out a plea to their rescue partners for placement. WISE was happy to step up and take in this adorable dude.

Pretzel is the easiest going guy we know. He loves walks, pets, and everyone he meets including all dogs and cats! Pretzel would do best in a low-activity household with children 10 or older that will allow him to spend his time in relaxation. He is a couch potato who takes serious pride in his naps. Pretzel wants nothing more than to be loved and you can share your love with him by scratching him right below under his curly tail. He will do a happy dance for every scratch he gets!

We have not seen any immediate medical issues with Pretzel, but, as a senior, this can change at any time. That being said, he will need an owner who will be able to provide for all his medical needs to make sure he is always comfortable. Pretzel is neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations, microchipped, and has had a senior wellness check, including bloodwork.

To adopt Pretzel, please email with questions or to apply!


Our Jenny is a gorgeous 13 year old, 45 pound senior surrendered by her 'family' after a lifetime of breeding. When surrendered she was still lactating from her last litter!

Jenny hates being kenneled as she loves snuggling up close to her person, going for easy walks (she's great on leash), getting belly rubs and giving kisses. She's very loved at the shelter, but it's not home. She is breaking down from being there. We have a very nice facility yet it's still not a home and she cries constantly. It's heartbreaking.

Jenny bonds quickly with her person and is happiest by her person's side. She enjoys meeting new people outside although can sometimes be shy. She'll happily show off how smart she is with a 'sit', 'stay', and 'give paw', all in exchange for a treat of course.

Jenny's ideal home is a calm one, with females only, no children, and one in which she's the only pet. It's a tall order but we know the right situation is out there, we just need to find it for her.

Jenny is housetrained, spayed, up to date with vaccinations and has no apparent health issues.

To adopt Jenny, please email with questions or to apply!


Bluto has been in foster care for about three months. He’s had several applications, and the potential adopters always love his calm, friendly demeanor, but the overwhelming reason for not adopting him is his age.

Bluto is a sweet, gentle 8 year old, 70 pound pitbull mix. Bluto’s backstory is unclear because he was found waiting in front of a house where his family once lived.

Bluto may have been abandoned and neglected but he still loves people. He is friendly and enjoys meeting people on the street. He gets lots of compliments and requests to pet him while out on walks with his foster in San Francisco. He’s also friendly with most dogs he meets, even on leash. He has met several cats in his neighborhood and has been curious but not aggressive. But because of his size and strength we recommend a home with no small animals. He would be happy as an only dog but may enjoy a home with a dog of similar size and play style. He has met many children on his walks and is always gentle and patient, but because of his energy level, young children may not be a good fit.

Bluto is well behaved, well adjusted, calm, and quiet (he rarely barks). We think his ideal home would be with a person or family with a less active lifestyle—someone who would appreciate a cute 'house hippo' to cuddle with on the couch after a leisurely walk.

Bluto is in good shape with no health issues. His teeth had been neglected, so he recently had a dental visit and did lose a few teeth. However his remaining teeth are clean and white and he has no problem eating and chewing.

Meet TIPPY. This senior chi/minpin clocks in at 7 years old and 14 pounds. She's a bigger chi that does well with dogs and children, so if you've been worried about adopting a tee tiny chi with children in the home, TIPPY might be a better option for you! She comes to our program after her owner sadly had some health issues that caused her to surrender Tippy's ownership to a rescue, and the rescue subsequently reached out to us for help because we specialize in seniors.

This adorable sweetie is healthy, heartworm negative, and fully vetted, which means she is officially available for adoption!! Let's get her a forever home!

Hank the Tank

Honestly... Hank is dang near perfect. He is a couch potato and super cute to boot! He does resource guard his treats, toys, and food, so he would need to go to a home that appreciates the value and importance of supervised treat time and crate feeding, if there are other pets in the home. Hank is SUPER chill, but he will absolutely let a dog know "Listen, bro... I came from a hoarding situation where I hate to fight for these things so I'd back up if I were you!".

If you are looking for a super loving and affectionate little dog, that LOVES humans but is kinda meh on other dogs, you GOTTA check out HANK!
