Story
Graham is a two year old, solid bodied 17 pound mix of Chihuahua, German Shepherd, and possible beagle and terrier .  He is beautifully housebroken and crate trained.  His energy level varies from "just chillin" to "crazy puppy zoomies".  He loves to play with his toys and thrives on human attention.  He loves to do nose work and other training.  Very well behaved in the car.  Graham just needs some additional training to help him learn the rest of his puppy manners and get over his fear of strangers, and then he is ready to be your best friend forever.   For more information on Graham, please contact allison@chesed-rescue.org  May 25, 2024, 4:29 pm

Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier Poodle (Miniature)

Male, Young
Boca Raton, FL
Size

Good with kids, Not good with cats, Needs special attention, House-trained,
Story
Max is adorable, affectionate and loves to be held and cuddled.  He is a 2 year old, 7 pound yorkie-poo who could stand to gain a pound or two.  He is house-broken and well mannered, loves his blankies and toys and has a calm disposition.  And he has gorgeous, thick, black-brown wavy fur. Max is also a spoiled drama queen.  He will tell you what he wants and expects you to do his bidding.  Whether it is sharing your banana, putting on his sweater (he loves to get dressed) or telling you that it is time for a walk, "no" is not really an option.  While he is fine being left home alone for a few hours, he much prefers it when his human servants are there to wait on him. Additionally, Max is a special needs baby.  He was born with a spine defect and two bad knees which sometimes cause him some pain.  He also has IBS.  We are working with 9 different specialists to make him as happy and comfortable as can be.  We would greatly appreciate any donations to help with the cost.  And any potential adopters will need to have the love and financial resources to handle anything that might come up in this boy's future, as we have promised him that his next home will be forever! To read Max's full story, go to www.chesed-rescue.org/Max Adoption applications for Max, as well as a link to our paypal donation page are available at www.chesed-rescue.org.  To donate any other way (check, zelle, gofundme, etc.) or to get more information about Max, please contact allison@chesed-rescue.org.May 25, 2024, 4:29 pm

Not good with kids, House-trained, Spayed or Neutered,
Story
Chico is a 13 year old Maltese boy who currently weighs around 20 pounds.  A total couch potato who likes attention.  He is neutered, but is not currently up to date on vaccines.   This sweet boy needs a little training to make him the perfect pup- he will bark for attention, mark and nip if scared.  Nothing a little training can't fix, but he needs an adopter who has the time and is willing to work with him. For more information about Chico, please email allison@chesed-rescue.org or put in an application at www.chesed-rescue.org.  We background and vet check all applications and are looking for stable homes.   There will be no adoption fee for this boy, but adopter will be required to bring him up to date on medical and do at least three sessions with a trainer of their choice.May 25, 2024, 4:29 pm

Story
Ralph is a 3 year old, 13 pound Pomeranian/Spaniel mix.  He has a beautiful thick fluffy coat, which we just put into a puppy cut for him.  He is a little shy and exceedingly gentle.  He is very attached to his sister, Terrilyn and probably needs to be adopted with her.   Ralph is already neutered and up to date on all medical.  He loves to play outside, is housebroken and he and Terri would make excellent family dogs.   If you are interested in Ralph and Terrilyn, please fill out an adoption application at www.chesed-rescue.org/adoptions.   We background and vet check all applicants and are looking for a stable family to love these dogs for the rest of their lives.  May 25, 2024, 4:29 pm

Story
Gizmo is a 5 year old Maltese boy, about 13 pounds.  Housebroken, but not yet fixed or up to date on medical.  Very friendly, but a little protective of his people.  He gets along with other dogs, but really prefers to snuggle with people.  Current owner believes he may have some undiagnosed back pain. Gizmo is in our direct from owner adoption program and is not currently in Chesed's custody. We will background and vet check all applications, which are available at www.chesed-rescue.org/adoptions. Just fill out the general application and mention Gizmo! There will be no adoption fee (though donations to the rescue are always appreciated), but adopter will be responsible for bringing this boy up to date medically, including a neuter.
