Hello! My name is Canela, and I’m a one year old female Shepard/lab mix! I am both fully vaccinated and spayed, and I weigh approximately 50 pounds! I am fully potty trained and crate trained, and I am doing amazing with leash training as well! I first came to The Cantu Foundation when my mom was rescued from Mexi-Cali and I was born in San Diego. I was adopted when I was a puppy but had to be surrendered due to no fault of my own.

I love all dogs both big and small, however, I have not met any children or cats yet. I may be a little shy at first, but once I get to know you I will love you forever! Once I am comfortable with my people I am very energetic and love to kiss and cuddle! I have mild separation anxiety and may whine for a bit when I am left alone. I love to roll around in the grass on walks and chew on Beni bones or bully sticks. I am very playful and love to hike. My foster mom says I’m really athletic, and can run super fast. I am also really smart and knows when someone is sad and will try to give them love. 

My favorite things to do are go on walks and play with other dogs! If my foster parents could describe me in 3 words they would be cuddly, loving, and loyal! My ideal home would include at least one other doggy sibling, and humans that are home most of the time to spoil me with love and attention!

My adoption fee is $300, this fee covers my first year of vaccinations, spay/neuter, and microchip. Do I sound like the dog for you? You can fill out an application to adopt me at
