Facts about Cyrus

  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn

Cyrus is a true gem! He is a 3-4 year old pekingese/chihuahua mix who weighs about 10 pounds.  He walks politely on a leash, never begs, sleeps silently at the foot of bed, housetrained, greets dogs politely, great at the dog park, zero food aggression, never annoying- does not beg, whine, or demand petting, very eager to please but also entertains himself happily, hangs out on the couch and refuses dog beds!

He would love a quiet home without lots of guests. He is a follower and looks to dogs before people when he needs "help" with something- could easily become a bad dog if matched with an untrained alpha.

He loves small female dogs and is never dominant and displays no sexual dominance either. He loves to wrestle with my mother's female doxie mix and would do great in a home with another friendly dog. He has never been home alone without another animal present and would love to have a dog or cat friend.

He has limited experience with children. His reaction ranges from friendly to ignoring the children he has met since I got him. He will it take a treat from a child. He is fearful of school busses and has barked in fear when children get off then bus. I do not fully trust him around school aged boys. His reaction to children yelling is usually confusion and fear (hiding and barking not aggressively though). He would prefer a home without children or where the children were dog savvy and did not chase him.

He does great with cats! He desperately wants my cat to love him as his best friend was an outdoor cat at his previous home. Cyrus is the perfect little guy and would love to find his perfect fit! Is it you?!

About Good Karma Pet Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Good Karma Pet Rescue is a small network of foster homes in South Florida dedicated to providing dogs and cats in need with the love and help they need and deserve.

GK was started in 2011 by Stacey Chen, who decided that she could best provide for her foster animals by starting a rescue that aims for best care rather than high volume. We intend to stay as small as we need to be to ensure that every one of our foster animals is treated with the same care and respect we show our own furry family.

GK is based in Fort Lauderdale and is supported by wonderful, dedicated foster parents throughout the South Florida area. If you are interested in helping to save lives through volunteering, fostering, or adopting, please get in touch with us!

Come Meet Our Pets...

We meet potential adopters by appointment only, typically in the foster's or potential adopter's home. Dogs can be arranged to be seen at a local park or a similar location.

Our Adoption Process...

We have a quick but thorough adoption process. We ask you to fill out an application and we will touch base with you by phone. If we feel you are a good fit for the animal you would like to adopt based upon your application, we will want to do a home visit and have you meet the pet. If everything checks out, we will ask that you sign an adoption contract and pay a donation - usually $75 for cats and $150 for dogs. This includes all vetting, spay/neuter, vaccines, etc.

Our contract allows us to come visit you and your new family member after the adoption to make sure everything is going well and your new pet is happy & healthy.
