I realize that there is no such thing as a perfect dog, but I have yet to find anything wrong with Victoria. This cutie pie is smart, happy, polite, respectful, obedient, quiet (so far, I have not heard her bark) and not overly needy. She is very sweet and friendly; sometimes she can act a bit on the shy side. Victoria will not even jump up on my lap or bed, unless I invite her. When she sits on my lap she does not move a muscle. She truly has manners and is a grateful little sweetheart to be rescued. She always comes when I call her, and when it is time to go into her crate for eating, sleeping, or if I have to leave, all that I have to say is “Victoria” and point to the crate door and she goes right in!

Victoria is completely potty-trained. Of course, I always keep a door open, but she has never had a single accident in my house. She also learned the dog door in one day. Victoria gets along with all dogs, big and small. Once she told the big dogs to PLEASE get out of her face, she has not had a single issue. She is accepting of all friendly dogs and lives peacefully in the pack. She adjusts quickly to a new environment. I have not had her around kids, but I believe she would be fine with kids who are old enough to understand how to be gentle and respectful of the dog. I have not tested her with cats but her owner surrender paperwork says she is fine with cats.

Victoria walks well on the leash and would probably enjoy taking walks and maybe even a bit of light hiking; her longer legs will allow for this. She has a playful streak; occasionally she gets a wild hair to play and starts running around, or goes into a play bow enticing the other dogs to play with her (see her play video!). Victoria always eats her meal. I mix with some wet food as she is quite thin from having been a month at the shelter and losing some weight, competing for food with her kennel mates. I think being a little dog, she prefers a bit of wet mixed in anyway.

Victoria is a five-year-old Miniature Pinscher/Chihuahua mix rescued from the Ramona Animal Shelter. She appears to be in very good health and her teeth are in good shape. I believe she is supposed to be an 8 lb. dog but she lost weight at the shelter as I said. She was an owner turn in; the lady wrote on the paper, “My husband left me and I cannot take care of the dog.” I love Victoria! If I could keep her myself, I would, but I have enough dogs of my own. My point is she is a keeper and a DELIGHT to have at the rescue.

The home we seek for Victoria is a home with another dog, or without another dog; I do not think it matters as long as the home is a warm and accepting one where Victoria will be loved, cared for, and cuddled and obviously an indoor dog. I would not want any dog to be an only dog in the home if folks are collectively gone from home for long, extended hours on a daily basis. In that case scenario, it is better to have two dogs to keep each other company. Victoria is such an adaptable dog that I believe that she can adjust to most any environment.

Victoria is spayed, fully vaccinated (including rabies), front-lined, dewormed, and micro-chipped.

About Angel's Heart Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

The primary focus is to rescue a few dogs from animal shelters who are red-listed for no other reason than there are too many dogs in an overpopulated state shelter system, and they simply need more time for someone to notice them. The intent is to locate friendly animals who could otherwise be great family pets if not for the misfortune of being homeless. Angel's Heart also takes in occasional strays but not owner surrenders. We can help by offering suggestions and tips for owners needing to rehome their pet.

Come Meet Our Pets...

The meet and greets are held in the homes of the rescuers and fosters by appointment only. A meet and greet is scheduled after an application is submitted and approved.

Our Adoption Process...

There is an application process, a meet and greet, and an adoption fee. Adoption fees are as follows: For dogs age one year or older- $200.00, for dogs 6 months to 11 months - $225.00, for most puppies under the age of 6 months - $250.00 and for certain pure-bred dogs - $300.00-$350.00. All of the rescued dogs are spayed/neutered, micro-chipped, and fully vaccinated including rabies. Since most of the dogs come from city and county shelters, vet checks, medications, fecal tests, de-wormers, Front-line, and other services are also provided as needed. The adoption fee is considered a donation to the rescued animals within the adoption program of Angel's Heart Dog Rescue. Varying fees provide additional financial support for particular dogs who are harder-to-adopt cases or specialty medical cases. We strive to give you as much information as we can about the animal you wish to adopt by observing his or her behavior in a variety of settings and social situations.
