Gucci and Buster

French Bulldog mix brothers

Gucci and Buster are bonded French Bulldog mix brothers. They are 5 months old and weigh 25 pounds. Buster has a cropped tail, Gucci does not. They are inseparable and have to be adopted together. They are friendly, happy, lovable boys. They get along with the other dogs but prefer to be just the 2 of them. They have not been cat or child tested. The adoption donation for the pair is $450 which includes their neuter, vaccinations, microchip.

Rudolph and Waddles

7-month-old male Terrier mixes

Rudolph and Waddles are bonded 7-month-old male Terrier mixes weighing approximately 10 pounds. We expect them to be around 20 pounds when fully grown. Rudolph has medium length hair and Waddles has short hair. They are very affectionate, playful and friendly. The adoption donation for the pair is $600 which includes their neuter, vaccinations, microchip.

Jesse

1.5-year-old Bully mix

Jesse is a 1.5-year-old Bully mix weighing 66 pounds. She was adopted a year ago and returned when the adopter relocated and was unable to take her. We were told that she doesn’t like men and that she became protective of the family. They said that when she was with the family she was lovable and happy but would become protective when anyone came into the home. She needs an adopter who will take the time to rebuild her trust. Her adoption donation is $100 which includes her spay, vaccinations, microchip.

Selena

3-yr-old Chihuahua mix

Selena is a 3-yr-old Chihuahua mix weighing 14.6 lbs. She is friendly and affectionate. She loves to have her belly rubbed and will lay there with a big smile on her face as you pet her. She does not like other dogs so she has to be the only pet. She walks well on a leash and enjoys cuddling. She does have a mammary tumor which we will have removed before she is adopted but she is ready for adoption now. Her adoption donation is $300 which includes her spay, vaccinations, surgery, and microchip.

Tilley

5-year-old Dachshund mix

Tilley is a 5-year-old Dachshund mix weighing 15 pounds. When she first arrived, she was so scared that she would hide and cower whenever anyone went near her. After many months, she is still scared but has come a long way. She cannot be left alone outdoors no matter how secure you think the fence is. She will not walk on a leash so she does need to have a home with a fenced-in yard. She gets along with most dogs and has not been cat or child tested. Her adoption donation is $250 which includes her spay, vaccinations, microchip.

Cj

5 month old male Hound/Chihuahua/Rat Terrier mix

Cj is a 5 month old male Hound/Chihuahua/Rat Terrier mix (according to his DNA scan) weighing 15 lbs. He should be around 30 lbs when fully grown. He came from a high kill-shelter with his mom and 5 siblings. He is a typical puppy, full of energy and love. He is very smart and catches on quickly. He loves to play with squeaky toys and his litter mates. His adoption donation is $250 which includes his neuter (when he’s old enough), puppy vaccinations and microchip.

Nova

4-year-old Chihuahua mix

Nova is a 4-year-old Chihuahua mix weighing approximately 11 pounds. This little girl is very shy and it takes her a short time to warm up to new people. But after she does, she is an absolute love muffin. She is best as an only pet because of her timid nature and in a home with no children. She is a picky eater, and she has a fear of thunder and loud noises. She is very mellow and gorgeous with one blue eye and one brown. She does well on a leash and loves to walk. Her adoption application is $250 which includes her spay, vaccinations, microchip. She is heartworm negative and on monthly prevention. She is anxious for her Forever Home so please come to meet her.

Rocko

3-yr-old Chihuahua

Rocko is a 3-yr-old Chihuahua weighing approximately 10 lbs. His owner was moving and unable to bring him. She said he was fearful and unsocialized. He would frequently hide from them. He has improved greatly with us, but he still is not totally trusting. He will need someone who will take it slow with him and be patient.  He may snap and try to nip until he gets to know you and trust you.  We think he will be best for someone with a fenced yard.  He likes to walk on a leash but it’s best to get to know him in a fenced yard then leashing him will be more comfortable for everyone.  He has bonded with our rescue manager.  It just takes him a little time.
