When we got Quigley, (pictured below AND adopted), one of our supporters said “What an adorable wreck! Perfect for the Dawg Squad body shop!”
Thinking about it…..yup…..we have put together more legs and pelvises in the LAST year than I can count on two hands. And here is our latest….
Margarita is 9 weeks old and 3 out of her four legs have been damaged. She had a hip replacement (FHO) on her right hip and her left front leg had a broken radius (“forearm”) That’s a lot for a little four pound pup to go through but she is coming around with flying colors.
Of course this cost an arm and a leg (pun very much intended). If you would like to help us out, please go to
I Want to Help Margarita
NO amount is too small.
IT’S RAINING ROTTENS!
You know how much we love Rottweilers! Here are 3 of our latest!
All three pups are great with other dogs and are ready for their forever homes. Check them out at https://dawgsquad.org/our-dogs/

Hello Fellow Poker Playing Dog Lovers,
It has been another year and we are thrilled to announce the 6th annual Poker for Puppies event taking place on Sunday April 8th.
We hope that you can be a part of the adventures. We had well over 100 players last year, our best on record so far. This time we are ditching the costume contest, doubling down on the ice cream and moving to the iconic Sportsmen’s Lodge Hotel in Studio City.
We will have adorable, adoptable doggies for you to cuddle with, casino games for the non-poker folks, loads of free food and new this year, MASSAGE. Come enjoy the afternoon with our celebrity players, Dawg Squad volunteers, the DJ’s of New Work City and of course your favorite poker dealers.
