Introducing the Real Shelter Dogs of California: The New Cast

Introducing the Real Shelter Dogs of California: The New Cast

Time for a spinoff!

By Stacy Lenz

Just like The Real Housewives, we've decided that one California franchise of The Real Shelter Dogs is not enough! While we’ve already met some great California shelter dogs in Orange County, we have a new cast: Just like how without Vicki Gunvalson we’d never have met Kelly Dodd, without Princess Buttercup we’d never have met Jaspar.

Which brings us to the fine pups at I.C.A.R.E. Dog Rescue. The rescue itself is committed to helping any dog in need, but specifically focuses on dogs many consider “unadoptable” because of medical conditions. The aim is to save these dogs from shelters and, through a network of volunteers, get the pups back to wellness and ready for their forever homes. It’s kind of like each pup has their own health advocate by their side, a la Yolanda Foster.

And now without further ado, meet the new pups in town, complete with opening credits-worthy taglines!


“Happiness is never having to apologize for being a wet dog.” - Jaspar

Jaspar is a big, hunky goofball with a heart of gold! His favorite things to do are play fetch and splash around in a kiddie pool.


“Belly rubs come at a cost, and I’m willing to pay.” - Gogo

Gogo has smile that lights up a room. She absolutely loves kids and belly rubs. She needs to be the only dog—but that just means more love for you!


“Walks and treats are nice, but my happiness starts at home.” - Jenna

Jenna is one of the sweetest dogs you will ever meet. Her favorite thing to do is chill by your side and binge-watch Netflix!


“When people tell me I’m not cute, I know they’re just pulling my leg.” - Bear

Bear may only have three legs but that doesn't stop him one bit. He loves the outdoors and doing fun activities with his human friends.


“My advice to you: Do snuggle the snuggler.” - Dolce

Dolce is an affectionate love bug that is so much fun to be around. She loves to play or relax—as long as she is with you, she is a happy camper!


“Fool me once, shame on me. Fool me twice, and I’ll still try to chase after the tennis ball you pretended to throw.” - Jelly

Jelly is a very sweet girl with the cutest ears ever. She loves to play fetch and will make you laugh with her silly hop while she chases the ball.


Please visit I.C.A.R.E. Dog Rescue for more information on this organization and please email if you are interested in adopting any of these sweet doggos!
