When I first arrived here, I barely moved. I’d been found on the street, my coat was unkempt, and I appear to have some hearing and perhaps vision loss. I was so scared. But if you’re feeling sorry for me, we need to change keys—mine isn’t a sad song anymore because I was rescued! And now, after a little adjustment time, I’m perking up. I’m happy when my walker arrives, enjoy those outdoor strolls, and inside, I sometimes make my own fun—like making “toys” out of my blankets before taking a nap on them. (That’s called entertaining yourself, right?) I’m a 20-pound, blonde and white Spaniel mix female—a 10-year-old who comes with Free Vet Care for Life! My golden years may be my sweetest ever—may I please spend them with you?
My siblings and I have been through some serious experiences—found as little babies in the desert, then some of us requiring medical attention—and now we’re all set for those just-for-fun adventures from the puppy perspective. Not that we’ve forgotten that puppies are supposed to learn stuff, too—things that are very important to our people, so we all need someone with the patience and time to teach us. If you’re one of those people, I promise to remain adorable as I grow and learn. We all appear to be a Chihuahua/Terrier mix and I’m the single male in this litter, with a handsome coat of tan and white and big brown eyes, weighing in at around 12 pounds. I am really bonded with my sister Gala so how about we meet, fall in love, and all go home together forever!
(Note: Bio needs update.) I was found with my Hound friend Missy—two young dogs running loose. I won’t say we were running free because when you don’t know where to find your next meal, clean water or a safe place to rest, you don’t feel all that free. But we did stick together and her company made me happy. I’m super friendly by nature and not just with a dog buddy. I really like people, too; I think it shows when I look at you with my bright, happy eyes. I’m a sweet, little Terrier mix female, blonde and just about 12 pounds, so I’ll fit nicely in your lap. At just 18 months old, I’ll be your happy, loving and loyal companion for a long time to come, so please let me into your heart today!
Some people describe Shar-Pei dogs as having a “hippopotamus” muzzle. That’s what I call distinctive and fun, which I like to think describes me to a T. I’m an 8-year-old blonde Shar-Pei female, just 33 pounds but with a sturdy build, and a calm and confident personality. I’m friendly to people, always happy to go for a walk, and leash-trained. At my former home, I darted out of the door one time and was hit by a car, so my trainers are helping me learn sit/wait at doorways. (I’d say I’m doing pretty well with that.) Now, I can’t speak for everyone, of course, but I believe a dog’s life is far better with people. And vice versa. If you agree, I hope you’ll make us both very happy by making me yours today.
There are “bad environments” and then there are really, really BAD environments, and that’s what I came from. There were about 30 of us in a hoarding situation, and thankfully an incredibly dedicated woman rescued all of us over the course of a few months. Several of my companions and I came here, and when we arrived, almost all of us had one sort of affliction or another. It’s been a long road to recovery, but we’re almost there and SO ready to have places of our own. I’m a delightful 19-month-old Siamese mix girl with the most wonderfully soft, rabbit-like fur, and although still a bit stunned by my ordeal, I’ll warm up in no time and fill your house with affection, one purr at a time!
