"WHAT IS A MAGICAL UNICORN?" you may ask. WELL, MAGICAL UNICORNS ARE AMAZING DOGS WHO, FOR ONE REASON OR ANOTHER, HAVE SIMPLY BEEN OVERLOOKED AT CROWDED SHELTERS.

They are dogs who may not run to the front of their kennel to greet visitors, so they're less frequently seen. Perhaps they're shy, or maybe they just don't do well in the stressful shelter environment. Maybe they have a treatable medical condition and just need someone to give them a little extra care. Whatever the reason, these dogs find themselves running out of time at the shelter. Previously overlooked, once you get these Magical Unicorns out of the shelter and into a loving foster or forever home, they reach their full potential as happy, loving companions!

I love other dogs and a dog companion would be really nice. Wanna meet me?

KAYLIN HOPE COYOTE

AGE: 8 Years WEIGHT: 50 lbs BREED:  German Shepherd/Herding Dog Mix 

Hi. I'm Kaylin Hope Coyote! I'm 8 years old and I weigh around 50 lbs. I had a super rough start in life before the rescue ladies heard about me camping out in Hancock Park in the bushes! They caught me and then my life started to change. As skeptical as I was, that feeling in my gut said these folks were good and I believe them when they said my luck was about to change! It did! I got all my vetting done and now I am in a foster home...a HOME! A real home! I'm figuring this home stuff out but I think I really like it. Oh, I really like the foster kids because they are calm and make me feel super safe. Wanna meet me?

I take her everywhere with me and she is always on her best behavior in new places. She only has 3 legs but you would never know. She can keep up with me and my dog just fine. Kat met a cat and and turtle this week. She was unsure of both of them but did not react or chase them. We are currently working on crate training (she doesn't seem to mind her crate at all!) and going potty outside. She is food motivated and not a picky eater.

If you're ready for some sweetness in your life, apply to adopt Peanut!

PICKLE

AGE: 10 years WEIGHT: 6 lbs BREED: Chihuahua mix

Well hey there! I'm Pickle. So yes, you might have noticed my fabulous ears. They're better than a stylish beach hat. I'm great with kids and really love to hang with other dogs no matter how giant they are. I'm not fostered with cats, but I'd probably be happy to live with them too. I'm housebroken to boot! The kids that use the dating apps tell me it's good to have a sense of humor. I've got that in spades! I'm super playful for my age, but snuggling is still my absolute favorite activity. I make a great foot warmer because I love to burrow all the way to the bottom of the bed. Wanna Netflix and chill?

Basically, I need a human who will keep me in check so I can continue being a lovely, balanced gal. No kids, sorry! I can't wait to meet you. xo

I came to the shelter with some matts and some icky toofers, but I've had a bath, a nice haircut (my coat will be fluffy and luxurious in no time!), and dental surgery to make sure my smile is ready for the big screen. I'm currently hanging out in my foster home full of shih tzus - they are super nice and fun! I'd love to meet you and show you how adorable I am!

My name is Brutus, and I am a calm, well-mannered dog who’s great on a leash. If you give me a command, I’ll do it. Sit. Down. Shake. Stay. Heel. I like to go to dog parks to run and play with other dogs. If you’re an active person, we could have so much fun. Hikes. Walks on the beach. Games of fetch. I'm neutered, up to date on shots and housebroken. I’m loyal and looking for a new person to  devote myself to. Maybe it’s you.
