Sunflower's Story...
2/16/09 Update:

SUNFLOWER devotedly raised 8 puppies through the intense cold of December. Now the kids are whoppers, half the litter adopted, half waiting for their new families, and this gentle, quiet mom is ready for her home, too.

She is strong and shiny, sleek and trim, and would be a great match for an active person or family who would take her hiking and camping, or simply on peaceful walks in nearby forests or arroyos. She waits patiently, and when it comes, she gracefully soaks up love and affection. Gets along well with other dogs, and still plays with her puppies.

Spayed, vaccinated, heartworm test Negative. Housetrained. Adoption Fee: $150

SUNFLOWER, like so many rescues, was "doin' OK" but never had a clue that she is precious and loveable. No one harmed her, but no one praised and pampered her, either. She's liking it a lot! She's just about the dearest mama dog we've ever seen and when her babies are weaned she hopes to join a kind gentle family who will continue to sweet talk her for the rest of her life.

She's doing a magnificent job of raising 8 fat talkative babies who sound just like Sand Hill Cranes! Their funny faces suggest their daddy is a Sharpei. They were born on November 13th and will be ready for adoption by mid-January. We'll update this site as they grow.

Sunflower is currently nursing her pups. She will be spayed and vaccinated after weaning.

Her adoption fee is $150.00.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sunflower, a Santa Fe Hound (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Hound (Unknown Type) for sale in Santa Fe, or seeking a Hound (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Santa Fe.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Santa Fe already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Santa Fe breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Hound (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Hound (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Santa Fe paves the way for another one to be saved.
