My story

Everyone meet Captain Crunch! Captain Crunch is an 12 year old male Chihuahua that was an owner surrender AFTER finding himself in two other high kill shelters (SEAACA & San Bernardino City Animal Shelters). One of our board members saw his post and decided that we needed to rescue this precious boy. Once we got him, it was VERY obvious that something was wrong, very wrong. His front legs seem to collapse and if he tries to walk on any uneven ground, he falls face first. Our vets have determined that he has congenital leg deformities with his front legs. His joints, ligaments and tendons prevent his legs from staying in socket. Sadly, there is no surgery or treatment that can fix him but we do have him on medication to help keep the inflammation down and make him comfortable. If this was not enough for the poor boy, his teeth were a horrible mess and we did get him the dental he so desperately needed. He is also getting bi-weekly Accuscope treatments to help strengthen his ligaments. We are now looking into a harness that will help his front limbs tremendously.  The good news is that Captain Crunch is always smiling, is happy as can be and has the best personality. He has been neutered, had an extreme dental, is up to date on his vaccinations and is also microchipped.  If interested in adopting Captain Crunch, please go to www.lolr.org and fill out an adoption application.  Captain Crunch's adoption fee is sponsored, however, all of our other standard protocols for adoption will be in place.

Additional adoption info

Additional Information: If applicable, we'll call your veterinarian to ensure that previous pets have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and well cared for. For renters, we'll check with your landlord to ensure that dogs are permitted and that the dog that you're adopting wouldn't violate any size or breed restrictions. Adoption fees are generally between $300-$450 depending on which pup you are adopting.
