Dolly ADOPTED! 03/26/2015

Estimated Birthday January 11, 2008

Darling Dolly is a sweet, middle aged girl with an easy going temperament. She weighs about ten pounds and has good, solid bones and a lovely attitude; calm, quiet and easy to handle. But, she also loves car rides and has been running a homemade agility course with the children in the foster home! She will make a wonderful lapdog for an elderly home or a family with school age children. Dolly enjoys her foster mom and children but is not enamored with the foster dad who prefers the English Bulldog puppy house mate. 

Dolly will appreciate someone who wants to go on walks in the park and share a cosy sofa with a blanket and a cuddle. After a hard life of multiple litters of puppies and a lack of basic care, Dolly deserves a home with a family that wants to share a peaceful and quiet life together. Her previous owners didn’t bother to have her HUGE hernia repaired, so our sweet Dolly appreciates the  comfort of a loving home and enjoying a decent meal.

Dolly has been spayed and her hernia repaired, had a dental, is vaccinated, microchipped and on monthly heartworm preventative.


Estimated Birthday November 19, 2011

This happy little girl just loves to play and chase the other dogs in her foster home. Based on her size and coloring, we think Duchess is possibly a German Shepherd x Rottweiler mix. She has striking black and tan with white point markings. She weighed 25 pounds at five months old.

She is very smart, she learned to sit on command within an hour. She walks on a leash when she knows her handler, is crate and housetrained. The foster home has several small dogs, two large dogs and a couple of cats, so she is learning to interact well with other pets.  She is going through formal obedience training and is very responsive and disciplined.

Duchess was rescued from the Valencia County Animal Shelter as a tiny two month old pup. She has been in her foster home since then so has not been neglected or abused. She will make a great medium sized companion for a home with an active family with a nice sized yard and well behaved children.

Duchess has had her full series of puppy shots, vaccinated for rabies, spayed and microchipped. She is currently on monthly  heartworm preventative.

It was a tough time adjusting for this sweet boy. Skipper was found abandoned in a wire cage, with his little buddy Gilligan, on the side of the road in El Cerro Mission. Very underweight with a respiratory infection it took a couple of weeks for us see his full potential. What a lover boy!!!

He is still a little nervous, most likely he isn’t used to having a calm, quiet and warm home. But he is quickly getting used to attention and lots of high quality food.

In his photo, taken after two weeks in quarantine, he is a bit underweight at just a hair over six pounds. His healthy weight should be about seven pounds. Skipper is great with the other dogs in his foster home. He is learning to use the dog door and is crate trained. With a little time and attention he will be a wonderful addition to a loving family.

Skipper is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped on heartworm preventative, and a sweetheart looking for a family that appreciates a small dog with a big heart and lots of love to give.

Colorado came to us from a litter of four puppies taken to the Valencia County shelter. The owner has released over a dozen Chihuahuas to the shelter in the past. He doesn’t speak English so the best the shelter staff could do is ask their age and he held up four fingers. They assumed it meant they were four weeks old. However, he could have meant there were four puppies.

Colorado weighed just under three pounds on January 1st last year and just under four pounds on January 15th. He weighs about 12 pounds now. Not quite what we anticipated . . .

He is a light fawn color with tiny slip of white on his forehead and dainty white socks. He has sturdy bone in his legs so should do well with school aged children and larger, social dogs. He is a bit timid so needs a quiet home that can give him a lot of one-on-one attention until he feels safe. He is not a fear biter, just wary of people. As the largest dog in his foster home he has become dominate, however, he loves playing tag and keep away with the more active dogs. We think that someone with a desire for a dog that can keep up like a big dog, but is “suitcase size” for traveling and a smaller size home and yard, can turn this boy into an incredible companion. Colorado is not nippy, instead is compliant when held, groomed and fed. A foster-to-adopt home that can help him transition and gain confidence would be welcome. 

Colorado is neutered, had a full series of puppy shots, vaccinated to prevent rabies, microchipped and on heartworm preventative.
