Story
9 year old Finn (Finny) of Victoria is looking for a home. This handsome boy, weighing 60lbs may be a lab x shepherd. Finn is a sweet, handsome, sensitive, smart boy who is dedicated and affectionate with his people. He loves tummy rubs, ear scratches, back rubs and will request more with a gentle paw or moan. Finn loves spending time with his people but is good alone. Finn is timid with strangers and prefers his home to be a sanctuary for his family. He is afraid of young kids and cats. Finn is good with dogs - every single dog, he shows nothing but kindness for. Finn doesn't pull on leash and has good recall. Finn is food motivated, house trained, and knows his standard commands. He loves a backyard where he can relax, sun bathe and play tag. Finn has a big bark but only uses it to alert you to visitors, doorbells, and cats. Finn was found as a very young puppy in parking lot with his mum and 10 siblings in Mexico and spent his first 10 months in a shelter which is why strangers and loud noises are scary. He likes a safe quiet space to rest and call his own when things are too hectic. He is looking for a compassionate, quiet home with a yard… a squeak toy, stuffy, bone, or even some paper to shred wouldn’t hurt either !

Story
Sweet Keisha is looking for a home. She is 40 lb shepherd x lab with a kind and brave soul, who just melts into the arms of those kind enough to give her affection. Keisha was found in Puerto Vallarta, skinny and hungry, trying to care for and protect her litter of 6 puppies. She had dug a small hole to hide them as she stood over them, chained up, until thankfully the angels of the SPCA PV came to rescue them. After her rescue, they learned that Keisha was also blind, they believe from poisoning. Keisha's pups all inherited her kind soul and affection for humans. And we hope that Keisha herself will find her own happiness. Naturally because she can't see, she enjoys sniffari walks, to take in the world around her, and would love a safe property to explore her world in between cuddles with a family that this time would love her. If you think you may be able to give Keisha a home, we'd love to hear from you at pvcaadoptions@gmail.com. You can also go directly to our application here: https://forms.office.com/r/b1Fkq3u4zw

Story
Beautiful husky girl Chiquita, born April 2023, is looking for a home. She is approximately 41 lbs. Her mum and littermates were often seen wandering in the area of the SPCA PV sanctuary and staff and volunteers saw them in deteriorating condition due to a diet heavy on garbage and took them in to give them the care they needed. After she got refuge in the sanctuary, she lived through a hurricane which heavily damaged the shelter, and she had temporary refuge in a home that unfortunately had a landlord that didn't allow dogs.. but in that time, she learned what a home is and what it is meant to be loved. Chiquita is an energetic girl so she’d love a yard with some space to burn off some zoomies but was in a foster home in an apartment. She loves the beach. Her foster mom just loved her, described her as a fast learner, and a great cuddler. She has learned basic commands - sit, come, waits to eat her food. She isn't destructive in the home and did well in the car. She is selective with other dogs, and can be reactive, and would squabble with her siblings. Kids make her nervous so she'd prefer a quiet adult home where she can learn more about the world. Chiquita would be best in a home without cats as she shows high prey drive. Video of Chiquita with her shelter friends: https://www.facebook.com/spcapv/videos/1401202434079126 She is now healthy and vaccinated. If you think you might be her happy home, please contact us at pvcaadoptions@gmail.com for more information. Chiquita is currently in Mexico but can fly to a Canadian home near you!

Story
Meet Gus, a charming 11-month-old Mastiff Hound mix with a heart as big as his paws! This gentle giant may be a bit timid around other dogs due to his past experiences, but he's an absolute people-lover and a devoted lap dog at heart.Currently, Gus is in the process of learning obedience skills, as his previous training has been minimal. He's eager to please and would benefit from continued training to help build his confidence and manners. Gus is a nature enthusiast who absolutely adores his walks, especially when exploring the woods. He would thrive in a home where he can enjoy regular outdoor adventures. Given his nervousness around other dogs, Gus would do best as the only pet in a household. While we haven't tested him with cats, his gentle nature suggests he might get along with a confident feline companion.One thing Gus can't resist? Treats! He's incredibly food motivated, which can be a fun and effective way to bond with him while continuing his training.If you're looking for a loyal and loving companion who's ready to embark on outdoor adventures and snuggle up on the couch, Gus could be the perfect match for you! Come meet this sweet boy and see if you can give him the forever home he deserves. Primary Color: Red Secondary Color: Black Weight: 43 Age: 1yrs 0mths 0wks
