My story


Humans who are seeking the love of a big dog. Not quite extra large, but larger than average!

These humans around here guess that I’m a Great Pyrenees mix of some sort, because that’s my size & I have some guardian dog tendencies.

Things you should know:

✅ I am big, but gentle.

✅ I don’t love other dogs. Can I have a forever home where I can just be your one and only?

✅ I’m kind of naughty. I know how to climb chainlink. I see no issue here, but my rescue peeps say I need a hope with block walls or wood fencing so I can’t climb them. *sigh*

✅I haven’t met a kitty, but there’s a higher than average chance I’m not good with them, so no kitties. It’s best for everyone!

My name is Buddy, and I am super sweet. I learned all the good stuff in the PAWS program, and I am 100% ready to come love you with all of my heart. If you think we’re a perfect match, please fill out an adoption application here: My adoption fee is $250 and that includes all the vet care and training I got in the PAWS program.

If I’m not The One for you, please SHARE me! Maybe one of your friends will fall in love?

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

All animals are sterilized, vaccinated and microchipped prior to adoption. We require an initial adoption application, once accepted pets may be adopted with an approved home check and signed adoption contract. Our adoption fee is generally $200.00, but this may vary in special cases. We do not do out of state adoptions.

More about this rescue

Viva NM Rural Animal Rescue is a group of volunteers dedicated to saving homeless and abandoned pets in rural high volume shelters. We hope to not only decrease the number of dogs and cats that are euthanized through rescue and adoption but also educate the population overall about the importance of spay and neuter programs. We do not have a facility, our rescue is strictly foster-home based.

We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
