Adopt A Senior - Sammy

Adopt A Senior - Sammy
Sammy is now 8 years old and is a good, but very shy, one-person dog. She would be excellent for a single-person household. A patient individual with a lot of doggy-know-how would be the ideal match. Sammy needs a secure, fenced yard. She tends to be dominant with other dogs, but can get along with them. Sammy came to our shelter from a rescue in Dulce.

Tootsie

Tootsie
Eagerly awaiting her new family, Tootsie has gone through a transformation! With the help of a good foster home, she has left her formerly shy, uncertain self behind and is now showing up with confidence, energy and playfulness! She LOVES water-play and is good with other dogs and cats. Understandably, due to her size, she is not comfortable with small children, so a home with young kids would not be a good match. Tootsie is around 8 years old, which for a Chihuahua, is considered only early middle-age. She's patiently anticipating a call or email from "her person."

Clancy

Clancy
Clancy has returned to our shelter: He was adopted out as a puppy and -- now, three years later -- was returned due to injuring a small dog living nearby. Clancy is believed to be a mix of Shepherd and Carolina Dog, but also looks as if he may have some degree of wolf included in the mix. Due to the reason for his return, there is the question of how he might behave with small dogs, in general; but at our facility, he has seemed receptive. The same receptivity has been true of cats upon initial testing. We will be looking for a home with no small children. Clancy is very friendly and engaging with people and walks great on leash (but is evasive with being leashed-up, a behavioral issue around which he's currently receiving training). He is a beautiful, regal-looking guy of red-sable and white coloration.

Sammy2

Sammy2
Sammy is a Mountain Feist, a hunting breed, who came to us as an owner-surrender. He is 1 year old, approximately 20 lbs and is a bundle of good-natured energy. Sammy is crate-trained and walks very well on leash. (Fence and leash are requirements.) Upon his arrival here, we tested Sammy for heart-worm and, sadly, he tested positive. The good news is that his treatment went very well and is now complete. So, Sammy is back in swing and is ready to tackle the world again with his happy, healthy, full-of-life attitude!

Simon

Simon
Simon is back. This little man was adopted out in 2011, but has some behavioral problems that will require patience and love. You see, Simon came from a hoarding background. He is now learning a lot about life and freedom and, while the 3 other dogs that arrived with Simon from the same hoarding situation have adapted quite well to their new loving homes, it looks like Simon needs more time. He would like a home with structure and lots of positive attention. He is young, at just over a year old, and seems happiest in the presence of other dogs.

Freddie - ADOPTION PENDING!

Freddie - ADOPTION PENDING!
Freddie is a 5-year old girl, adoptable to the right person. Her previous family surrendered her, due to her protective nature and behaviors with strangers entering the home-space. Freddie bonds solidly with her people, is sweet and loving, as a matter of course, and tests out as accepting of strangers in neutral settings, but is protective of her household. She would work well within an adult household in an out-of-town location where there are minimal and well-managed comings/goings of strangers. Freddie is house-trained, crate trained, interacts well with other dogs and knows some basic commands. She is up-to-date on shots and on heart-worm preventative.

Murphy

Murphy
This little man's innocent, "who me" expression will bring a smile to your face! He is a high-energy, "Dennis-the-Menace" delight, but his happy face doesn't reflect his near-miss from an unhappy ending in a high-kill shelter in Missouri. Murphy is around 1 year old, good with dogs and older kids. He's about 25 lbs. He is puppy-style unruly and will require lots of training and patience, but he's worth it!

Pierre

Pierre
Pierre just came to us from a hoarding situation and so much wants to find his new home! His coat had to be shaved down, but looks as if it's going to come in thick and beautiful. He is good-natured and loving, full of personality and very desirous of affection. He will need structure and individualized attention/training. Pierre is under 3 years old.

Angus

Angus
This kid looks like a tall Cairn Terrier. Angus has recovered from being bitten by a rattlesnake and has been fostered out, since personal reasons prevent his former owner from keeping him. His best buddy is Bentley, also on this site. Angus is territorial with other dogs, but otherwise seems to have an even approach to the world. Angus is most likely house-trained, but we don't know for certain yet.

Tyson

Tyson
Tyson is a German Terrier, with true-to-breed traits. He is very adoptable and likes kids -- but needs to be the only dog on the home-front, as he is aggressive with most dogs (a few exceptions apply). He will need a job and ample exercise, as well as a secure yard. Tyson is between 6 1/2 and 7 years old and came from a high-kill, out-of-state shelter.
