Toro is a handsome 1 year old Terrier / Chihuahua mix and weighs about 13 lbs.  He is super sweet, loves to kiss your toes when you walk by.  He can be a little shy with new people, but only wants love once he meets you.  Toro really likes playing with other dogs, even dogs that are much smaller or bigger than he is He is learning to sit and stay very quickly and is very treat motivated & responds well to clicker training. Toro was sleeping in his kennel but he is doing so well, he now sleeps with his foster mom and he much prefers that.  He is picking up good manners more and more each day. He is house trained and likes to use the doggie door. Toro is learning self control and making good progress.  Toro has a lot of happy energy but he also loves to snuggle up in your lap. He has some separation anxiety and does't like to be left alone much for very long. Toro loves walks, goes nuts with excitement with he sees the leash and is a little reactive when he sees other dogs on the street so we are working on that. He would be a perfect hiking companion. Toro has been very gentle with the children he has met so we think he'd do great in a home with kids. So Toro will make a great addition to and family.


Toro is neutered, microchipped and current on his vaccinations. His adoption fee is $250.

All of our dogs are in private volunteer foster homes, and as such these individuals are most qualified to answer any questions regarding the dog.

We do not have a central shelter or kennel locations - you must make a private one-on-one meet and greet appointment with each individual dog at the foster family's convenience.  To protect our foster families' privacy, we must have an APPROVED adoption application on file before we release their contact information.

All of our dogs are fixed (spayed/neutered) and up to date on shots. We have a 2 week foster-to-adopt period to make sure the dog is a fit for your family. Adoption fees vary from dog-to-dog.  

Please note that an approved application DOES NOT guarantee that the dog will be placed with you. The final decision rests with our fosters as they know the dogs the best, and please be aware that there may be other applicants interested in the same dog. We continue accepting applications on a dog until the dog is with the new adoptive family in their home.

Thank you for visiting our dogs located at

About Second Chance Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Second Chance Dog Rescue was formed to fulfill a desperate need in the community to Rescue, Rehabilitate & Re-home homeless dogs from the over-crowded local shelters, and from families who can no longer take care of their dogs (on a case-by-case basis only).

Our program is based on foster care, and all rescued dogs spend their first days at a loving foster home where they receive personalized care. As part of our program, we ensure that all dogs are vaccinated, are spayed or neutered, and have been socialized by their foster family. In addition, Second Chance Dog Rescue provides support for potential new owners and monitors progress for both new pet parents and their adopted dogs. This helps guarantee that our dogs go to good, loving, forever homes.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Visit our website at for a list of upcoming Adoption Events. Additionally, our foster parents may schedule one on one meetings with potential owners and provide a personalized adoption experience.

Our Adoption Process...

We require an Adoption Questionnaire to be completed - whether online or in person - before meeting any of our dogs. Upon approval of the Questionnaire, a potential adopter will be required to complete an Adoption Contract and pay adoption fees. All of our adoptions start with the first 2 weeks as a 'trial' period, to ensure the adoption is a good fit. Adoption of a puppy may require a refundable training deposit, which will be refunded upon completion of training with a Certfied dog trainer, and submission of certificate of completion to our office.
