The LAist dog of the week is Doogie. He’s a 5 1/2 year old Pit Bull looking for a forever home. If you are looking for a 55-pound lap dog, Doogie is your guy. Doogie was rescued from a shelter after being turned in by his owner who could no longer afford to care for him. Now Doogie is in the care of the Villalobos Rescue Center, a rehabilitation and placement facility for abused and abandoned Pit Bulls. Doogie is a very affectionate pooch. He adores people and gets along great with kids. Doogie would benefit from training and socialization to help him relate politely with other dogs. He’s got perfect house manners.

If you are interested in meeting Doogie, please call The Villalobos Rescue Center (661) 268-0555 or email adoption[@]
