Butter, spreading love!


We rescued Butter from a very high kill pound in Los Angeles where she had been abandoned along with five of her puppies. The pound separated Butter from her babies right away. They displayed her puppies up front since they considered them "more desirable", but they took Butter to one of the very back runs along with the hundreds of other dogs who would be overlooked. It was by chance that we discovered her, and after hearing her story we rescued her right away, along with her one puppy who was still there. Her baby is in a great home now, but Butter is still waiting. Los Angeles is flooded with Chihuahuas, and in fact, they have now earned the terrible position of being the second most killed breed in the Los Angeles pounds.

We are hoping that with a little extra spotlight on this amazing girl she will find her forever home soon. She weighs just 6 pounds and is nearly two years old. She is super playful and in many ways she is very much still a puppy. Butter would be great as a second (or third) dog, but she would also be fine as an only dog as long as she gets to have regular playdates out and about. If you are interested in meeting this spunky, gregarious, smart and extremely affectionate pup please contact

A Dogs Life Rescue
Why we Rescue

We do what we do because of our great love for animals. It's a community effort though and we at A Dog's Life Rescue could not make the difference we make without the help of our adopters, fosters, donors and incredible volunteers. Thank you to all of you! Please check out this video for a glimpse of some of the lives you have helped us save.
