Ruff Ruff! My name is McGyver
|Breed:||Silky Terrier Mix||Color:||Red/Golden/Orange/Chestnut - With Black||Age:||Adult|
|Size:||Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less||Sex:||Male||ID#:||2219633|
I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.
MacGyver is here to save the day! This dog is the definition of a sweetie pie. When he sees people, he gets so excited that he jumps up and down in glee. He loves to both go on walks and just be held, so he is perfect for the owner who likes a balance of 'play time' and 'snuggle time'.
Likely due to past abuse, MacGyver is initially shy with men that he doesn't know. Don't let that put you off though - if you go slow with him at first, then he will quickly become your best friend no matter what your gender is.
If you would like to give MacGyver the safe and happy home that he deserves, fill out an application right away!
More information about New Leash On Life Animal Rescue
Rescue Group Info...
New Leash On Life is a non-profit animal rescue corporation. It was created to significantly reduce the devastating number of animals abandoned and euthanized in Los Angeles. We hold mobile pet adoptions twice a month and offer both free and low-cost seminars and school programs to help educate the public about responsible pet ownership.
We've recently developed our Lend a Paw program, rescuing dogs from the shelter and training them as assistance and therapy dogs for people and children in need. In addition to our Lend a Paw training program, we have now implemented a training program for all of our rescues. Each dog rescued from the shelter will go through an obedience training course prior to being placed for adoption. Some special dogs may be chosen for Lend a Paw, while others will be adopted to loving families. By training each dog, the adoptive family has a better chance of developing a better bond and a permanent relationship.
Our E.R.A. Center is open BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. To meet one of our pets, you can come to a mobile pet adoption (info is on our web site) or fill out an online application. Private meetings at our adoption center are by appointment only. Visit our web site or call 661-255-0097 to ask about any of our pets for adoption.
