Two of the three dogs abandoned at a foreclosed home in July were adopted this week by two families from Altadena and La Crescenta.

Reese, a Chihuahua mix, was adopted Monday, and Kenny, a cavalier mix, went home Tuesday morning. Sophie, the terrier mix, is still available for adoption at the Glendale Humane Society, a no-kill shelter.

"Sophie is a really sweet dog who loves her tennis ball," said Star Mangasaryan, the shelter's director of operations. "She wants to be loved and play with her ball. And eat."

In both adoptions, prospective families arrived to meet other dogs. In their introductions, shelter staff also brought Reece and Kenny.

"It was love at first sight," Mangasaryan said. "They didn't come in looking for them, but they left with them."

The dogs have been living at the Glendale Humane Society since July. The nonprofit shelter took in the pets after they were cared for by a good Samaritan at their foreclosed home off North Verdugo Road.


The animals were found when landlords arrived to inspect the home. They contacted Houston-based No Paws Left Behind Inc., a nonprofit that arranged pickup and care with the Glendale Humane Society.

The dogs had their own cage and are fully vaccinated, officials said.
