super sweet, shy, loving Chihuahua mix
This precious little boy was dumped at a kill shelter. He was then placed in a pen with big dogs who attacked him and severely broke his leg. Without medical care on his leg, he was sent home with a foster and pain meds. After THREE MONTHS he was returned to the shelter and placed on the kill list. That's when we found out about him and pulled him to safety.
Buddy has had surgery on his leg. He doesn't like to use that leg. However, nothing has broken his beautiful spirit and sweet personality.
Buddy needs a home who will understand he is shy and why he is shy. After he feels safe, Buddy will be a perfect little..buddy :o)
Buddy is young (around 1 year old), he is crate trained and he LOVES LOVES LOVES dogs. Because of his sugar sweet nature we feel he will also be great with cats.
Buddy is otherwise very healthy and ready for some true love.
We are a small (3 people) rescue. Our main purpose is animal advocacy. We teach pet owners about the importance of spay/neuter and proper care and love of dogs & cats. We also feed, spay/neuter community cats to help keep down the feral cat population. We are active in our community and help to get dogs off of chains and into homes where they belong. We find our rescue dogs on roadsides. Some we are able to find their homes, they were just lost. However, most were dumped and need medical & emotional care as well as spay/neuter. We take the utmost care of our rescues. Therefore, we are ALWAYS in need of donations so we can continue to stop and save these precious lives. In the past year, we have rescued and placed over 30 dogs into beautiful, loving homes.
