Send us an email requesting an application to start the adoption process-- Approximate DOB 04/01/2016 Size - About 17 lbs History- It all started with just one Facebook post-- an angry young lady who found a bald sickly dog on the side of a road.. Another person saying yes that they would foster once we put it on our volunteer page (we seriously have some amazing foster parents in our program!!)... A shelter who cared enough to help us round them up - they would text or call us as soon as another fitting the description was picked up or surrendered to them.. A wonderful vet clinic who has seen us at the drop of a dime every time we have gotten a call that another one from this group was found (three were dumped on the side of busy roads throughout Valencia County - Los Chavez, Belen, and Tome and one was taken to the shelter).. We now have 4 dogs in treatment for demodex and as you scroll through the photos on our facebook page you will see how much they have changed.. Hermione was the worse -- she was scabbed over and full of infection, she could barely move, and Melba at The Canine Bungalow was very worried she wouldn't make it... She checked on her constantly -- putting her food and water and meds in the bed with her so she didn't have to get up (she was in so much pain she could barely move).. Thank you to those who have donated for their care-- this is where your money goes when you donate-- dogs like this who just need a little more time, care, and love.. We have 2 girls Hermione and Bellatrix and 2 boys Draco and Lucius.. Temperament- Very sweet, playful, and happy. Loves everyone- would be perfect for taking out in public, hanging out, and meeting new people.. Energy Level- Higher level energy- very athletic. Other Dogs/Cats- He loves to play chase and wrestle with the other dogs. Would be a great hiking, biking, or jogging partner. He is great with the cats, irritating as he thinks they love him as much as he love them, but gentle.. House trained- He uses a dog door This very happy energetic boy would make a wonderful addition to any energetic family wanting a sweet, loving, athletic boy to join their family. He loves attention, playing, and cuddling with his loved ones- though he is one of those dogs that is almost always going and has a hard time actually lying down as he thinks everyone needs attention.. We will be updating his photos soon-- he and Hermione in foster with Melba at the Canine Bungalow so I know they have grown their hair in but haven't had a chance to re-do their photos.. But will do soon.. Adoption fee $250 includes spay/neuter, age appropriate vaccinations (4 for puppies), deworming, microchip, rabies vacc, collar and tags, training information, and all the support you need.
