My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

DAISY is sweet and relies on her nose to identify you. She loves to hug and kiss. She has a comical nature as you can see from the pictures :-) You will need to have another friendly playful dog or If you don't then adopt her with one of her best friends wo best friends Folie and Ollie.

A great site with tips on having a deaf dog family member is and there's quite a bit of DDSL on there as well. There are also a few books on Amazon about deaf dogs as family members.

Daisy has play dates with other dogs daily and has a great time! Daisy is DEAF and has trouble seeing when she comes inside from a strong sun (her eyes are very pale blue :-)

Her adoption fee includes her spay, vaccines, deworming, tick/flea prevention, and microchip. Her birthday is January 30, 2020.

Do you live in our adopting area? (Santa Fe, Abq, Rio Rancho, Los Alamos general areas) Do you have another young playful friendly large dog? Or would you be willing to adopt her with her friend?

We have specific adoption and Covid rules listed below.

Revised adoption policy
Due to Covid -19 pandemic and social distancing requirements, we've revised our adoption policy. First, please email ( to inquire before you fill out the online application. (Please do not call or text). We are unable to do multi-dog/cat meetgreets or adoption events at this time or bring multiple animals to your house to choose from, so please only inquire if you're serious about adopting this particular animal(s). If you're just shopping around with several shelters and rescues, please let us know this. If your application is approved (which 'could' take up to one week) then we will contact you to set up a Zoom chat or ph call to answer questions/clarify anything and set up a day/time to bring the pet to you. Since we can't come into the home/yard due to Covid-19, we ask that you to send us pics /video of your home/yard/living area/current pets. We will discuss with you about meeting your other pets. At the meeting/adoption at your house (outside) please wear a mask (as will we) and have hand sanitizer.

We adopt locally to Central Abq, Santa Fe, Los Alamos and Rio Rancho. No out of area adoptions inquiries please. No young children for our adoptions please. Puppies MUST adopt to families that have another young friendly playful dog of similar size when grown. These animals are fostered and our families like to know their fosters are happy, healthy, and cared for during their lifetime. We appreciate staying in touch periodically (social media, pics, holiday card, videos etc :-)

We're sorry, but if you email us or fill out an application that does not fit the parameters of our procedures we will not be replying to you. Thank you for your understanding!

Thank you!

More about this rescue

We work with the animals at three local Indian tribes (pueblos). We have a spay/neuter called, Door2Door, we assist animals with medical emergencies, prevention, education. We rehab and re-home the unwanted, abandoned, and neglected. At the time of adoption, we bring the pet to your home to make sure all family members including all fur babies get along and all are onboard and committed to the pet. We have an adoption process and we like to stay in touch with the families for the life of the pet.
