My story

Hi - my name is Duey! I am two-year-old male Chihuahua mix. According to my DNA test, I'm 57% Chihuahua, 14% Miniature Pinscher, 8% Shih Tzu, 5% Maltese, 5% Cocker Spaniel, 4% Bichon Frise, 3% Toy Poodle, 2% Pomeranian, and 2% Chinese Shar-Pei. According to my foster family, I am 100% adorable and sweet. 
I was found abandoned as a puppy in a desert town in Arizona with three of my siblings. They actually had to get a specialist to trap us and it took multiple times to catch us because we were smart and, honestly, pretty scared of humans after being so alone like that. While I still take time to warm up to new people, I want their attention and especially, walks!!! I’m a really sweet and loving dog once you let me get to know you. I am also a one-of-a-kind silly boy with lots of leaps, skips, funny sounding barks (only when I’m super happy— I’m not a big barker), and doggie dances that show you how happy I am! I am also a great friend to other friendly dogs of all sizes and ages (and friendly with bunnies too, so probably would be fine with cats)! I’d actually do best in a home with another well-socialized and confident companion dog (or two or three!) because that is the fastest way to get me to trust the humans in the house and learn all the house rules — I copy the dogs!
So, if you are willing to be patient with me to reap the huge rewards of watching me come out of my shell to feel safe and loved in your home as my forever family -- which means you will get to see my sweet silliness and it will make you laugh -- then you should pick me!

More about this rescue

I.C.A.R.E. is an all breed, no kill dog rescue. We rescue dogs at risk of being euthanized from shelters, abandoned, abused, and stray dogs. We also rescue many owner surrendered dogs; which are dogs that can no longer remain in their current homes due to financial or personal issues. I.C.A.R.E. Dog Rescue is dedicated to reducing the number of dogs that are euthanized in our shelters each and everyday. We focus on rescuing and rehabilitating them in loving foster homes until they are adopted into their permanent homes. We also focus on educating the public regarding specific breeds, rescue, and general information regarding the canine species. We are a 100% volunteer run and supported organization that cannot survive without the help of loving fosters, volunteers, and benefactors.
