Adoptable Dogs! Meet The Real Shelter Dogs of California Spin-off ShelterPup Rules

Adopt a dog named Jax — this one is an actual dog.

By Stacy Lenz

We have consistently been featuring the country’s most adorable and adoptable Real Shelter Dogs but, inspired by a featured pup this week named Jax, we are making our own Vanderpump Rules inspired spin-off — Shelterpup Rules.

Unlike Jax Taylor, the dog Jax featured today probably can’t make you a pumptini, but he can definitely wear a backwards Taco Bell sweatshirt, as long as you purchase and style it for him. He comes to us from Wags and Walks. Based in Los Angeles, Wags and Walks is a rescue that prides itself on being a community of dog lovers first, focused on family-friendly foster and adoption programs for dogs. They concentrate on selecting their dogs based on temperament to ensure successful adoptions and that they have. Among their many success stories includes an impressive roster of celebrity fans and adoptive pet parents.

And now meet the cast of Shelterpup Rules, complete with opening credits-worthy taglines! (Okay, we know that Vanderpump Rules doesn’t have taglines, but play along with us.)
