Meet the Fosters

Each of our foster dogs has their own unique story, we are honored to have been part of their journey.

2022

Chumley

Chumley was our 22nd foster dog, he was 10 years old and was found in his home by the coroner when his owner passed. He was so scared and was prone to fear biting on site at Frosted Faces. I took him home and he quickly calmed down and turned into quite the little love bug. Chumley brought in quite a few applications due to his adorableness but really needed the right family due to his fear biting. He even nipped at people during adoption appointments (not a great first impression). Chumley found his perfect fit at the end of our two week foster fling. They have experience with bitey chihuahuas and are willing to be patient and give him space as he learns to trust them.

Buddy & Toby

Buddy & Toby were our 20th and 21st foster dogs, they were a bonded pair who were surrendered to Frosted Faces through their Final Wish program when their mom moved into assisted living. They had been waiting for a family for six months when we took them on a fling. They had gotten rave reviews from other fosters and it was a mystery why these two hadn’t been scooped up. They were just as good as everyone said and adapted to living in our home so quickly and well. We took them to visit Santa while they were here and they asked him for a family. Santa was a couple weeks late but they were granted their wish and adopted a couple weeks after our fling with them ended. Their new parents love the boys so much, it was definitely worth the wait for them as they are living their best lives.

Gracie & Pogo

Gracie & Pogo were our 18th and 19th foster dogs, they were a bonded pair surrendered by their previous family to the shelter. They had been waiting four months for a family, pairs are hard to place as few people are looking for two dogs. Gracie and Pogo also had different personalities and weren’t attracting the same adopters. Gracie was outgoing while Pogo was more mellow and reserved. They were so fun to have at our house, it was kinda like we had double. Gracie was so much like Kara and Pogo so much like Riley. Gracie and Pogo also constantly snuggled, just like Kara and Riley. We couldn’t have been happier when they were adopted at the end of our two week foster fling by a family that found them on our TikTok. Their new family loves them so much and makes sure that they have the very best life. 

Greta

Greta was our 17th foster dog, she was 10 years old and was found as a stray. She could be timid with people she doesn’t know and was prone to snapping at quick movement, especially around her head. Greta got more and more confident each day in our house and was such a loving and affectionate girl who just needed patience, understanding and someone to take the time to learn and respect her boundaries. Greta was adopted a week after our fling ended by someone who saw her in one of our TikToks. Her new mom loves her so much and loves taking her on errands. Greta had a great Christmas and loves her new sock monkey toy. She is so cherished by her mom.

Sonia

Sonia was our 16th foster dog, she was 10 years old and was found as a stray. She was the sweetest little girl and looked beyond adorable in all the girly clothes and accessories we have here. Every day was like playing dressup and Sonia loved all the attention, between photo shoots you could always find her snuggled up on a bed. Sonia was adopted at the end of our fling and renamed to Sophie, which I totally think fits her better. Her mom says she is the best companion and they are so happy together. 

Carlisle

Carlisle was our 15th foster dog, he was 15 years old and was found as a stray. When we got him, his mouth was horribly infected and he severely needed a dental. He had his dental when he was with us, he had all 18 of his remaining teeth removed and two oronasal fistulas repaired. A few days after surgery he really started to feel great. It was so amazing to watch him feel better. Carlisle was scooped up for another foster fling the day after we dropped him off but this family who is very experienced with seniors ended up adopting him. They love him so much, they call him the lap landlord and he looks so cozy there.

Bodhi

Samoa was our 11th foster dog, she was 12 years old and turned into the shelter as a stray, not always but frequently little seniors are turned in as strays by their family who just want to avoid questions and judgement. Samoa was a very sweet girl but quiet and shy so she was getting overlooked on site for adoptions. She was so happy and sweet in our home, she loved to burrow under the blankets. She found her family shortly after our fling ended and they renamed her Frida. She loves to snuggle up with her family and watch the office, she’s so loved.

Lucero & Carolina

Lucero & Carolina were our 12th and 13th foster dogs. They were 15 and 16 years old (though I suspected they were younger than that) and a bonded pair who was surrendered by their family who was moving and didn’t want to take them with them. They were sweet girls with lots of personality who really loved each other. They were always snuggling and I would frequently find them snuggling together under the blankets. I was so happy when they got adopted just a few days after their fling was over. Their new family adopted them and a puppy right around the same time and all three girls love each other so much. They have been renamed Olivia and Ellie and are so spoiled and loved in their new home.

Rocco

Rocco was our 10th foster dog, he was 10 years old and surrendered to the shelter by his family because they didn’t have time for him. He was very scared at the shelter and would bite when scared.Once in a home he warmed up quickly. He was a huge fan of fetch and had the cutest little tail wag as he proudly brought back his toy. We were so excited for Rocco when he was adopted a week into our fling. Unfortunately he was returned a few months later because they didn’t have time for him. He was adopted two more times and returned until finally getting his true forever family on his 4th adoption. I was honestly shocked that this little guy got returned so much as he was easy and fun in our home. Rocco’s family loves him so much, his favorite spot is on his mom’s lap and he gets lots of time there.

Pixar

Pixar was our 9th foster dog, was 9 years old and removed from a home by animal control where he wasn’t being properly cared for. Pixar was adorable but was getting looked over by potential adopters because he was bitey on site. We took him home and instantly the biting stopped, he just wanted to live in a home. He was a little ball of energy (we think he might have been younger than 9) and played with Kara non-stop. Once we showed how sweet and fun he was in a home, he got snatched right up and was adopted one week into our fling. Pixar is living his best life with his family now, and even has a brother named Snowball who is his best friend.

Mark

Mark was our 8th foster dog and was 10 years old. Mark had been waiting a long time for a family when we took him home for a fling. He was in heart failure and had canine cognitive dysfunction (dementia). He was a snuggly little guy who just wanted to be held and fed snacks. We were so excited that one week into our fling he was adopted. However he was returned shortly after as the family didn’t feel equipped to handle his care. He adopted and returned a second time, Mark’s time was limited, and we were worried he wouldn’t find his family. We weren’t the only people to have fostered Mark, one of his fostered had fostered him three times. After being returned for a second time, she made it official and said that Mark was home to stay with her. He loved being carried around by his mom in a sling. Mark unfortunately passed in February of 2021 but he passed away with a family who loved him dearly.

Whitney

Whitney was our 7th foster dog, was 10 years old and was found as a stray. She had horrible skin problems and required medicated baths every other day. She was a very sweet but itchy girl. We didn’t get to know her very well because she got adopted one week into our fling by a family very experienced with skin problems. Whitney was renamed Winnie and her family loves her so much. Her skin is doing great now that she has gotten the consistent treatment she needs. She has two human siblings and her mom enjoys taking her on adventures.

Tami & Tobi

Tami & Tobi (both girls) were our first bonded pair and our fifth and sixth foster dogs. They ended up at Frosted Faces after their mom passed away from cancer. They were so confused about what was happening and were pretty anxious on site at the rescue. They both settled in immediately as soon as I got them home, these girls were used to living in a home and made that very clear. Fostering them is what made me fall in love with fostering pairs. They had a calmness to them because they had each other. They garnered a lot of adoption interest and we kept them an extra week as we knew we could place them quickly and they didn’t enjoy being on site. They were adopted three weeks into our foster and their mom was immediately in love. They have another sister now named Lizzie and they are living their best lives, eating homemade food and spending their days at home with their retired mom who rarely leaves their sides.

O’Malley

O’Malley was our fourth foster dog and was 12 years old, he was rescued from Riverside Shelter. He was an easy going, mellow guy who was having a hard time standing out. We were able to glam him up a little with some outfits and accessories and he quickly got noticed. He was adopted shortly after he returned from his fling with us. Unfortunately, O’Malley passed away in August of 2021. His family said that he was the most unique furbaby they have ever had, always loving and so sweet.

Mickey

Mickey was our third foster dog and was surrendered to the shelter because his owner’s health was declining and they could no longer care for him, he was 11 years old. He was so fearful when we got him and would bite if you tried to touch him. He spent the first week of our foster hiding in the corner of main human’s room. After a week he opened up and turned into the sweetest little love bug. We extended his fling by a week to give him some extra time to build confidence. He was adopted shortly after he went back to Frosted Faces. He is the boss of his house, even though he is the smallest dog. He is a huge cuddler and sleeps in bed with his mom every night.

Puppet

Puppet was our second foster dog who was found as a stray and came from Long Beach Shelter and was 8 years old. He had horrible skin problems when we got him but was a super easy going guy who was obsessed with food. He got adopted half way into our fling and was renamed Petey (Puppet was a made up name from the shelter anyways). His family loved him so much and gave him nothing but the best. Unfortunately, Petey passed away in August of 2021. We are so grateful that he got the best final chapter with his family, we just wish they had more time.

Toro

Toro was our first foster dog and came from Wishing Well Ranch, an animal sanctuary that had to close down after the owner passed. Toro was 10 years old and had lived there almost his whole life, he had never lived indoors as he lived in an outdoor kennel. Toro started to learn how to live in a home here with us and really enjoyed wearing clothes and snuggling in blankets. Toro was adopted after our fling ended and is living his best life with his moms and dog siblings.
