Additional info:

Chico is a sweet natured cuddlebug with medium energy. He is very friendly and active, loves to play fetch and loves to go on walks. He is a fiend for belly rubs. Chico walks around with a constant smile on his face and responds well to his name. He minds well and will take direction if he's doing something he shouldn't be. doing. He's not crazy about his crate but we're working on that. He gets along fine with other dogs. We have some leash work to do with Chico as he gets excited and wants to tow you along behind him; he is also reactive to other dogs on his walks. As we said, though, he listens and is super smart so this is just a matter of training. Chico is looking for his forever home. Maybe it's yours.

Our Adoption Process...

Dogs Without Borders screens potential applicants to make sure the dog is right fit for their home. We require an adoption application and a home-check. Our adoption fees are $300 for adult dogs, and $350 for puppies 3-6 months, and $400 for puppies 2-3 months. All dogs are spayed/ neutered, vaccinated and mirco-chipped prior to adoption. We also give new owners an ID tag.
