Adopt a senior - Swayze

Adopt a senior - Swayze
Swayze has a "complex personality" -- He gets very attached to "his" people, LOVES playing with kids and is fun to watch as he entertains himself with his jolly ball and tries to get the attention of visitors with his squeaky toys. He's also good with other dogs. Meanwhile, when bonded with core people, he can become protective of his family and their space and can act suspicious and guarded where strangers are concerned. He would only be a candidate for adoption to the right person: someone who is very dog-savvy and would offer consistent and appropriate training and guidance around Swayze's guarding behaviors.  The ideal setting would be a low-bustle, predictable living situation, with few comings and goings of non-core people.  Swayze is around 10 years old and has Pemphigus Erythematosus.

Adopt a Senior - Toto

Adopt a Senior - Toto
This senior Chiweenie will need a special home. He is overweight and needs gentle exercise on a regular basis. Toto is good with other dogs and loves lap-time. He would like a female caregiver, as he is not very good with men. A home without small children is also needed. He is between 12 and 13 years old.

ADOPT A SENIOR - Traveler

ADOPT A SENIOR - Traveler
Traveler has been waiting for "a person of his own" for a very long time. He has lived his entire life at Annie's Orphans, having been found as a stray with his mother when he was about 5 weeks old. They were both starving and close to freezing on the 5 degree morning of their rescue. As a quiet boy, he has been repeatedly overlooked. Traveler is a shy fellow and takes time to warm up, but is able to bond. He is good with most dogs. His preferred placement is a calm, quiet environment with no children. Traveler is on the small side of medium and is 11 years old. He experiences arthritis in a front foot and a history of rebounding extremely well after the removal of a tumor from his tongue a couple of years ago.

Adopt a Senior: Annie

Adopt a Senior: Annie
Annie recently lost her adoptive family; then, went to stay in a temporary setting, where she was jumped by the resident dog. She is looking for a peaceful, loving home, where she can enjoy being secure and adored! Annie is a sweet girl and loves her walks. She is between 8 and 9 years old and was trained to a doggy door, but will probably need a refresher course.

Adopt a Senior: Peanut

Adopt a Senior: Peanut
Peanut has had an interesting history with our shelter, in that -- after 3 adoptions -- she keeps coming back to be with us. She is, without question, an absolute favorite here...with staff, volunteers and visitors. This girl is smart, attentive, friendly, ready to entertain...just a happy, engaging girl. She will be an exceptional companion in the right home: This means a household with no other dogs, no cats and no small children. Even though Peanut is 9 years old, she is still full of energy and will need a secure fence. What we have found through rehoming efforts with her is: 1) while she has been tolerant of dogs in a social sphere, Peanut will not share a home with them; 2) now that she is older, her patience for young children has flown and she will not be adopted out to a household with small children or where little kids frequently visit; 3) Peanut will require leashed activity and a secure fence. Having said all that, Peanut is a superb dog for an individual or couple who can offer her the amazing companionship that she can gift back. Call us about this gorgeous, fit and healthy girl !!

Charlie2

Charlie2
Charlie is a Carolina Dog from Tijuana. He is a very handsome young fellow, approximately two years of age, with nice coloring and ears sized for function! He is good with dogs and children, but not with cats. Charlie is good-natured and active. He would likely be fantastic in agility classes. Potential adopters will need to have a secure yard. Charlie also will need more training on leash.

Courtesy Posting - Aspen

Courtesy Posting - Aspen
Aspen is a courtesy posting and, as such, is not on-site and is represented as described to us. Please contact the number at the end of the bio for more info: Aspen, a female Siberian Husky, is approximately 10 years old. She was a rescue from Las Cruces, NM, and has been in Albuquerque with the same family for 9 years. As her current family has had some children, it's become apparent that Aspen is not good around toddlers and will snap at and act aggressively if her tail is touched. Aspen is a high energy dog that loves to go on walks. She would do best in an active family, as an only dog in a household with no small children. Aspen needs a fenced yard and walks on leash. For more information, please call: 505-206-8442.

Courtesy Posting - Gizmo
As a courtesy posting, Gizmo is not on-site at Annie's Orphans and is described as represented to us. Please, contact the number at the end of this bio for more information. Gizmo is a 17 month old pit-bull/beagle mix. He has been neutered, is up-to-date on his shots, and has a microchip. The owners have recently needed to downsize and can no longer offer him the attention and full life he deserves. He’s done well in a crate, but doesn’t stay in one regularly. He is not fond of being alone outside. Gizmo has a very outgoing personality and is always looking for the next adventure. He is full of life and loves to run, hike, and play hard, in general, making him the perfect outdoor companion! He is great with kids and loves to cuddle. Please give Trista a call at 970-749-9594.

Courtesy Posting - Lady

Courtesy Posting - Lady
As a courtesy posting, Lady is not on location at Annie's Orphans. She was described to us as follows. "Lady is a six-month-old heeler mix. She was born in June in Dolores, Colorado. Lady is a very sweet, loving dog, who loves to be cuddled and held. She has a history of abuse. When rescued, she was underweight, her collar was excessively snug and she was limping. The limp is still present, and veterinary follow-up would be indicated. Lady needs to find a loving home with people who can give her all the attention and care that she deserves." If interested, please contact us and we'll put you in touch with the responsible party.
