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.
is going through formal obedience training and is very responsive and
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

"Hi! I'm Honey! I'm told I'm a 3-5
year old piebald longhair standard dachshund, but people just call me beautiful!
I can be a girly girl sometimes, but I'm just as happy to go play in the dirt
with a little human as I am having a spa day. Even though I ended up in a scary
place called the shelter, I still love people of all ages and sizes! I also love
my furry friends as well, even the kitty cats don't bother me one little bit. I
have learned that I'm only supposed to go potty outside, I love taking walks and
as a lady, I have magnificent manners. My favorite things to do are play with my
foster siblings and snuggle up with my humans and watch a movie.
Oh, and I love belly rubs and cheese!
My new foster mama says I'm overweight and doesn't give
me many treats but I still love her and follow her everywhere. Even though I
love my foster home, I would really love to find my furever home. Since I have a
long delicate back, I will need a home with older children who will be careful
with me and who will love me as I will love them! I would also love a home where
I can have another doggy friend to play with when my humans are busy."

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.

Prince Charming is a very happy, sweet, energetic and
playful boy. He is submissive to other dogs and often tries to initiate play
with them. Because he is blind in one eye he does not have good depth perception
and will accidentally nip fingers when given a treat and is easily startled if
approached from his blind side.
Affectionate with his foster mom, also known as staff,
Prince likes to meet strangers, but in keeping with his royal heritage has
reservations about what he considers appropriate touching (gentle rear end
grooming is OK but not invited). Prince would do best with an experienced dog
owner and would appreciate a family that can share quiet times together.

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.

Piper is a sweet little soul. She loves to cuddle
anytime, anywhere, and her stocky body is so nice to warm up with on a chilly
day! Her smooth black coat with black brindle coloring on each of her tan legs
that make her look bull legged from the back, which only adds to her cuteness!
The white on her face gives a look of an older age, but is simply frosting on
She is crate trained, house trained and is using the
doggy door at her foster family’s home. Piper gets along well with all of her
foster siblings, big and small. And, although very playful, would trade anything
to just be on your lap getting and giving love. She is a bit overweight at about
10 lbs (we are working on that).
Piper was released to us from a family with more dogs
than they can manage. She is a full sister to Sassy II, but a year older. this
lovely little girl will do in a family with school aged children or an adult
only home. Other pets should be fine, as well.
Piper has been spayed, microchipped, given core and
rabies vaccinations, was tested for heartworm and three tick borne diseases and
is on heartworm preventative.

Calista has a long, elegant neck and lovely tulip ears.
Her coat is black with flecks of pale tan above her eyes and on the edges along
her mask and legs. Her legs, tip of her tail and chest, with several spots of
black, are bright white. She has a sturdy build so will be able to keep up on
walks with her solid legs. current weight is just over eight pounds.
A bit timid with strangers on first meeting, but she is
very affectionate once she gets to know you. She gives the sweetest little
kisses. She used to roll on her back in submission, but she now will stand on
her hind legs if you pat your leg to pick her up. She is crate trained, uses a
dog door, gets along well with the other foster dogs and is quiet. Because she
is a bit timid we feel she would be best suited in a home without young children
or in a mature home without a lot of noise and activity. Calista watches
intently for your signals of what you want her to do. She desperately wants to
Calista has been spayed, is current on rabies
vaccination, core preventative shots, tested negative for three tick bourne
diseases, heartworm, on heartworm preventative and is microchipped.

Victor has become a little firecracker! He plays with
the other foster dogs but is submissive to the dominate dog. He loves attention
and wiggles like a slippery fish to get going and play. Great with men and women
we think he will be a good buddy to school aged children and would love to find
an active home. Weighing just a tad over six pounds it would be best if he has
other active dogs close to his size or a tolerant larger dog.
Bottle fed as a tiny puppy, Victor gets along very well
with people. He has not been around cats so with his high energy level a slow
introduction to dog friendly cats would be advised. He is such a happy little
boy you cannot help but smile at his zest for life and enthusiastic antics.
Victor is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and on
heartworm preventative. All he needs is love.

Prairie Flower is a rambunctious little girl who is brave
beyond her size! She weighed just over two pounds on April second, so still has
some room to grow. She is an adventurous little gal who loves to play outside
but is ready to snooze in your lap when she is worn out. She also like to be
chased by her foster siblings and is faster than anyone running along the
railroad ties in the yard.
She will be best suited to a home with calm school aged
children because of her small size. Prairie Flower is in a foster home with two
larger, but very quiet dogs. We require a home visit to make sure the fencing is
secure for a tiny dog and like to meet the two and four legged family members to
see if she will be a good fit in the home.
She has her puppy shots, is
spayed, microchipped and one year rabies vaccination. Prairie Flower and her
sister, Meadow Flower, were purchased from a backyard breeder. Our foster home
did not want to see them go to homes that are not appropriate for these little
girls. They do not have to be adopted together, but that would be sweet.
ADOPTION FEE $150 each
or $250 for both.

On a blustery day in March this little dog was seen
marching determinedly down a street in Bosque Farms. She was obviously lost and
looking for someone or something familiar. Much to her consternation, a large dog
was following her when her good Samaritans saw her on the street. It took a bit
of coaxing and then throwing a coat over her to scoop her up and get her into
Her lovely face and sunlit coat gave Pretty Penny her name.
She has settled into her foster home with several other large and small dogs,
cats and gets along well with men and women. She is a sweet gal that prefers to
give preference to one person but will cuddle with those who are as quiet and
calm as she. Penny weighs just under nine pounds and is about four years old. We
think she will do best in a mature family without young children or a lot of
Pretty Penny has been spayed, vaccinated to prevent core
diseases, rabies and kennel cough. She has also been tested negative for three
tick borne diseases and heartworm. She is on monthly heartworm preventative and

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