What We Do​

Here at Hand Me Down Dog Rescue, we are driven by a single goal; to do our part in making the world a better place for pets and their people.


We are located in Bakersfield, CA and our focus is on rescuing working breeds (Border Collies, Cattle Dogs, Australian Shepherds, etc) but we do not discriminate.


We find our rescues from local shelters, and take in dogs that have been abandoned and dogs in serious condition. We try not to take owner surrenders, but find ways to keep pets and owners together.

 Dynamite is a stunning 9 year old English Pointer, but don't let her age scare you, she still has plenty of go left in her, without the crazy puppy stage! For example, Dynamite is housebroken, crate trained, excellent with all dogs, and LOVES people! Although, Dynamite is deaf... that does not stop her from being absolutely amazing. You honestly probably couldn't even tell she was deaf! She still enjoys life just the same as any other dog, and makes her all that much special. She would do best in a moderately active home, and would love a home with other dogs, as she enjoys their company. She is not an escape artist, and respects her fence line. She's a bird dog, so she loves to watch them birds. She is such a special girl and deserves a family to call hers. She is mircochipped, up to date on vaccines, and spayed.
