Pacaya - You are the bridge between what was and what will be, my pathway to a new life!
I am an athletic little lady from Central America named after the volcano where I was found!! After all of the years of running in the mountains and climbing the volcanoes of Guatemala, my ancestors have bequeathed to me superior genetics for strength and stamina!! I love to run and would make a great companion for an active individual or family that loves to hike and run!! Are you training for a 5K and need a running companion? I am your gal!! Are you and your family out hiking and exploring on the weekends? Again, you need to look no further for canine companionship! Agility training wouldn't even be fair for the other dogs in my class!! Most definitely top of my class!!
But, wait, there's more!! I also enjoy sitting on the couch and watching TV with my Hoomans :) Nothing better than a belly rub and an ear scratch after a fun day of activities:) I am not overly hyper, anxious, or high strung about my running, I just enjoy it and also enjoy my time with my family!! Sleeping on my orthopedic dog bed under the fan in the bedroom sure beats the volcanic rock of my youth!
Just a little about my youth; I was born on the side of the Pacaya volcano in Guatemala. I learned to survive from my Mama by politely waiting for the pizza crusts given to us by touristas from their lunches. These pizzas are actually cooked by the heat from the volcano!! Anyway, I digress. When I was about 11 months old, I found myself with a litter of puppies to raise!! I couldn't leave my puppies to follow the touristas up the volcano, so life was very hard for us at the bottom of the mountain. One day, a lady from Hay Dude Rescue came to hike the volcano with her family. I introduced myself by doing my "good dog" tricks; sit, shake hands, and don't jump up!! Through lots of red tape (including quarantine) we found ourselves at the Houston airport!! God Bless America!!
We are so grateful to be here and for the love, food , and care that we receive...and it shows in our faces and our appreciative attitudes.
At 18 months young and 35 svelte pounds, I am in the prime of my l life and am seeking my permanent Hooman family. I get along great with all people and dogs; with my superior intelligence, I would be a very capable therapy or family dog.
I am joy filled at every aspect of life and communicate that joy through my loving nature and accommodating personality. My clear, bright eyes sparkle with intelligence and understanding; Foster Madre says I just "get it"..whatever that means!! I understand a lot of human speak and pay attention to my people and surroundings. I am friendly and outgoing with everyone that I meet. No bad manners and jumping on folks; I am a "good dog" and know how to behave myself.
If you are looking for an intelligent, fun loving and funny companion, pick me!!
