Hi, I'm Chuy! I'm an adult dog with a big heart and three paws to match. My days are filled with cuddles and laughter, my tail wagging at every joke. I'm house trained and get along great with other dogs and cats too, making me a sociable chap. I'm not just a regular tripaw, I'm a fun tripaw! I've mastered the art of balancing on my three legs, and I've never let it slow me down. You'll find my sweet and funny nature irresistible. So, why should you adopt me?

Chihuahua Jack Russell Terrier

Story
BJ is an owner surrender who came in with his mom, Peaches. We had been contacted by a neighbor who stated that the dogs were not being cared for properly and that the older owner was willing to surrender them. Bj is extremely fearful and undersocialized. He literally shakes if someone looks at him or speaks to him. Because of his fear, he can also be snippy and will growl in "self defense ". BJ would not do well in a home with children. He seems to do OK with other dogs but could be reactive if scared so he will need a calm, easy going canine companion or be the only pet. He would probably do ok with cats since they would probably ignore him. Its difficult to say how he would be only because he hides a lot and freezes in fear. Getting an accurate read on his personality is difficult because of his fear. We do think that BJ wants attention but he just doesn't know how to go about handling interaction and can't seem to get comfortable and confident enough to seek it out. We are working with him to build trust and bring him out of his shell. We absolutely believe that this is do-able and will just take some time. Having him neutered will help, also and take that edge off. BJ will just need a patient, understanding, and preferably a dog experienced home who has dealt with dogs with similar social "blocks" He is still quite young at around 3 years of age so he has lots of good years left in him and finding a home where he feels safe and secure will be what he needs to live that life to the fullest because living in fear is just not living. He does appear to possibly be housebroken, although we never guarantee this. He also seems to be crate trained. We believe that BJ will make a wonderful companion once he conquers his fears and will be a dog who wants attention and love from his people. BJ saw the vet on 9/6/23. He appears to be in great health and no issues were noted on his exam. She tested negative for heartworms positive for hookworms on his fecal. We treated him with Drontal for the hookworms. He weighed 17 pounds as of 9/6/23. If interested in giving BJ his forever home, please submit your interest and your adoption application via email or text ONLY to 352-215-3260 (phone calls will not be answered or returned from this number). BJ's adoption fee will be $200 to help cover the cost of his vetting and daily care while with us. We will only consider applicants who complete the adoption application and will determine whether the applicant would be a good fit for BJ based on the info provided in the application. If we feel that you will be a good match for him, we will set up a meet and greet appointment with you.

Story
Charlie was surrendered to the rescue with 5 other dogs, who are also listed. His owner was having health issues and was elderly. He was not able to care for the dogs properly any longer and wanted them to have better lives with someone who could. Charlie and the other dogs were pretty much confined to one room and really only saw the older gentleman. They are friendly once they feel comfortable but can be skittish and nippy initially with new people. Charlie is fearful and undersocialized initially but he is still quiteyoung and comes around once he feels safe and comfortable. Charlie has shown a tendency to be nippy initially and for this reason, it is best if he goes to a adult only home, which is what he is used to or a home with older children who would be able to give him his space until he became comfortable. Charlie, we were told, is a chihuahua (possibly a mix although we do not know what he is mixed with) and is about 2 years old. He has done well with other dogs and we feel like he would also be fine in a home with cats. Charlie just wants to live a spoiled dogs life where he can soak up someone's love and attention and he deserves that. Charlie saw the vet on 2/21/24. He is a bit of a mess but all is easily treatable. He did test negative for heartworms. He has been started on Simparica Trio for monthly heartworm prevention/flea control. He did test positive for hookworms and whipworms so we treated him with Drontal for the hooks and whips. Skin and hairloss issues as well as earmites were found on his exam so he was given a Convenia injection for the skin/hairloss and has started the Simparica Trio which will treat the earmites and fleas, which,most likely, caused the skin issues. Charlie weighed 11.4 pounds as of 2/21/24. If interested in giving Charlie his forever home, please submit your interest and your adoption application via email or text ONLY to 352-215-3260 (phone calls will not be answered or returned from this number). Charlie's adoption fee will be $250 to help cover the cost of his vetting and daily care while with us. We will only consider applicants who complete the adoption application and will determine whether the applicant would be a good fit for Charlie based on the info provided in the application. If we feel that you will be a good match for him, we will set up a meet and greet appointment with you.
