Story
Phoenix is a boy about 2 years old. He was found wandering the streets, and had possibly been doing so for quite some time. We are not 100% certain of his breed mix, but he has the coloring of a black mouth curr dog, and shows a few dachshund characteristics. He is smallish, weighing approximately 12 lbs. Phoenix is shy and takes a bit to warm up to strangers, but once he does, he is an absolutely lovely little man! He really enjoys playing with toys, and whenever his foster mom takes all the toys for wash day, as soon as they come out of the dryer, he takes them one by one back to his nesting spot. This may be a trait left over from his days on the street. He is not protective of them, anyone can play with whatever toy they choose, but they always end up back in his bed. Due to his shy nature, Phoenix would do best in a home without a lot of activity and roughhousing. He is wary of the crate, but we are working on that. He is housebroken with a doggy door. Phoenix is in good health, neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. He is a delightful little boy. For more information on this pup or to adopt, please visit our web page at www.limbochihuahuas.org. Our application process includes a home visit and veterinarian and/or personal check. Limbo Chihuahuas is a 501c3 non-profit organization and all adoption fees are considered donations and are tax deductible.

Please only send inquiries to the email in this bio all others will not be answered. Please read the bio before sending questions - we answer all we know about the dog here. If the question is not answered in the bio please send emails to   info@HeidisLegacyDogRescue.com "You've got some 'splaining to do!" Hey new best friend, We’re Lucy & Ricky! Our foster pawrents like to call us “Cece” & “Ricky Baker”, and we don’t mind at all! We’re about 2 years old, we think! All we know is that we were roaming the streets in New Mexico on June 24, 2022 when we were found and vetted. The vet said we were around 5-6 months old at the time. The nice family that found us kept us for a year until we all moved to Tampa. Our found family was having another baby and needed to move in with family. But too bad for us, the new house had multiple cats and we just don’t really get a long with cats. Now we’re being fostered in St. Pete, and it was like we’ve always lived here! We’re just happy pups living our best lives, waiting for our permanent forever home, together. Lucy: “First of all, bark bark bark, can I give you a bunch of kisses to show you how much I love you even though I just met you?? Thanks!! I think that need to kiss is because I think I’m part Chihuahua, maybe Dachshund, maybe something else? Now let me walk you through all my favorite things so you can prepare! First of all, I love my brother Ricky so much. When he’s not within eye sight, I like to make sure he’s around by finding him, and puling on his collar. He does the same to me too! We just love each other so much! I absolutely love snuggling under a blanket near my caretaker. If you have to get up to go do anything, don’t worry, I’ll come along! But as soon as you sit back down, it’s snuggle time. Sometimes my brother Ricky will try to take over my cuddle spot, and sometimes I let him after he tells me he REALLY wants to snuggle the human. My favorite is when BOTH humans are home so we have our own snuggle buddy. But we’ll settle for both sitting on you and pining for your attention. I am most excited when the humans wake up and will smother them with kisses and gentle nibbles. Sometimes, my 18lb self will get so excited I can’t control myself and I jump around with an open mouth. Im not trying to hurt anyone but sometimes my teeth will touch the humans skin and they tell me it hurts. (Even though I don’t think it really does…I just don’t think they want me doing that) Then!!! It’s breakfast time! I eat right next to Ricky where we enjoy our dry kibble with some chicken breast atop. If I leave to follow you around, Ricky will try to hijack my food! But he’s not mean about it, just sneaky! I like it best when you hang with me while we eat. After that it’s go time in the back yard for potty time. Ricky and I will sprint as fast as we can around the fenced in yard, chasing each other around and having some super fun wrestle mania moments! I am the ultimate lizard hunter and will run and chase them. I also like chasing just about anything! I’m so fast Ricky can hardly keep up! We love to wrestle and tumble around. And I LOVE toys! Oh boy oh boy! You toss a toy, and I’ll get it for you right away! Sometimes Ill even bury them so Ricky can’t find them, hehe. We are so used to playing freely in a fenced in yard that when our foster pawrents take us for walks, we give them a run for their money! We don’t really understand how walks work, BUT WE LOVE BEING OUTSIDE! Anyway, after dinner time we are ready to settle in for the night. Don’t get my wrong, we’d love to go out for a car ride or on an adventure, a walk, play in the backyard…but honestly, we’re super okay with just snuggling on the couch and catching up on some shows! I’d love to sleep with you in bed under the blankets but I am also ok sleeping in my crate with my blankie. Ricky: “HI BARK BARK BARK! I’m a big small boy who enjoys simple pleasures like snuggling, looking our the window with Lucy, snoozing, eating, treats, and chasing Lucy in the backyard. (She’s so fast!!!) Unlike Lucy, I’m not as emotional and won’t go super crazy when you get home. I’ll greet you with a couple kisses, a wagging tail, and promptly sit on you the moment I’m able. The first time I meet you I will have to greet you with my low woofs, but I quit that out as soon as I see you’re a good human. I am protective of my humans, but super curious so while the woof may startle you, I’m just a big baby who just wants a lil attention and I use my voice to obtain it! (Smart right?!) I love children because they are at my level and so fun to play with. I’m gentle with them but Lucy might steal their stuffy! (I might steal it back if she takes it!) It’s probably best that if you have a kiddo with stuffies, that you only let us play with Nyla Bones or other harder chew toys so we don’t get confused between a stuffy and our play toy! Lucy and I lovey to chase small animals, like mice, lizards, bunnies, squirrels, birds, ect. It feels like something implanted in our DNA that makes us tiny hunters. Oh, so new foster ma has cut back on our portion sizes for breakfast and dinner because she said we were “thick”. (24lbs of pure love!) I don’t agree with her but I don’t want my legs to start hurting   Lucy & Ricky's adoption fee is $600 - 0bedience training required after adoption and fully enclosed fenced in yard is also required for these two.   To apply to foster or adopt please fill out application at www.heidislegacydogrescue.com/apply-to-foster-or-adopt Thank you for completing the application.

  Please only send inquires to the email in this bio all others will not be answered. Please read the bio before sending questions - we answer all we know about the dog here. Butters here, reporting for duty! Yep, you heard it right, they call me Butter Butt, and I wear that title with pride. I'm nearly 4 (or so I think), but who's counting when there are toys to play with and friends to sniff out gifts from? Don't mind me if I'm a bit shy at first, but once we lock eyes, it's game on! I'll be reaching for a toy before you can say 'fetch!' Now, let's talk about the paparazzi moments on our walks. Yep, people can't resist stopping us to gush over my dashing good looks. I mean, can you blame them? But don't worry, I'm a laid-back dude who loves playtime just as much as chill time. And by chill time, I mean ALL day lounging on the comfiest spot I can find. Oh, and speaking of tricks, I've got a few up my sleeve. Sit, stay, paw... and sometimes I'll even grace you with a rollover. But let's cut to the chase – walks are my jam! Mention the 'W' word, and I'm ready to hit the pavement. ‍&#226&#153&#130&#239&#184&#143 As for bedtime arrangements, I'm cool with snuggling up in bed with you or cozying up in my own little space, like a comfy cage. When it comes to visitors, I prefer my pack (that's you!) over strangers, but fellow doggos? Bring 'em on! However, those tiny humans with their unpredictable movements? Yeah, they can be a bit intimidating, so a kid-free zone is ideal for me. Now, let's talk cuisine. Dry food, wet food, heck, I'll even dabble in whatever you toss my way – I'm not picky! In my world, manners matter, and I can't wait to share my world with you. So, who's ready to embark on this adventure with me? Butters adoption fee is $400 - obedience training is required - fully enclosed front or backyard is also required   Obedience training is also required for all our pups.  We understand with what is going on in the world that this may be a bit delayed.  Please email us the completion certificate.
