Meet Picasso and Pablo

PICASSO the Wonky Dog

I saw this dog’s photo at the Porterville animal shelter and knew he had to come to Luvable…!!!! Then I found out he was on the euthanasia list. Then I found out he had a “normal looking” brother who was also on the euthanasia list. Both dogs had been surrendered to the shelter by their breeder/owner.

I couldn’t imagine taking one boy and not the other. So we got them both out and safe and brought them to Luvable Dog Rescue in Oregon!

We named them Picasso and Pablo, and Picasso’s amazing face has received a lot of attention!!!

Thank you for following Picasso’s amazing journey. Sadly, we lost his brother, Pablo in October when he died suddenly of an unpreventable brain aneurysm. Picasso is courageous and resilient and is continuing on with his training to become a therapy dog and assist Luvable Dog Rescue in its humane education program. Picasso is only 18 months old and has just begun his long life of service and adventures!

Pablo and Picasso have their very own 2018 Calendar available for you to purchase today! Visit our Etsy Shop to order yours now!

This Shelter Gives its Pit Bulls Cottages, Not Cages

For some very lucky pit bulls in Oregon, their time in a “shelter” is more like time spent in a cozy cabin at summer camp.

These dogs have a total of 55 acres of land — including forest, meadows, hiking trails, and a small country road — which they can use to decompress and feel at home while they’re waiting for an adopter.

Within the wooded acres, pit bulls have their own private cottages. The cottages offer indoor and outdoor space, and while each dog lives separately, shelter staff give the dogs time to socialize, too.
