Rustyn

Rat Terrier

Male, Adult
Espanola, NM
Size
(when grown) Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
Details
Not good with dogs, House-trained, Spayed or Neutered, Shots are up-to-date,
Story
Rustyn was adopted from a foster home in November of 2020. He was a home with many big dogs and did just great, although he was very timid. He was brought to a shelter earlier that year when a hoarding situation was discovered. He came to live with my chihuahuas and since, I have discovered he is not of the right temperament to be with smaller dogs. He is approximately 9 lbs., so he is small too. He does have some minor resource guarding tendencies. Primarily, he can have jealousy over his selected human, but it is not consistent with his tell-offs or when he is triggered. He would do great as an only dog with someone that can let him explore the yard or take him on adventurous walks. He is a big cuddler who loves to sleep under the covers in his human's bed. Everyone that has met him thinks he is just wonderful! He has done well with teenagers, adults and seniors. I have not seen him around younger children or cats. He is a terrier, so he can become focused, but he is not barky.

Our boy Marley is a big puppy, with big puppy energy! Handsome and goofy, he's still got a lot of learning to do. Luckily, he's incredibly food motivated and very eager to please- the perfect combo for training. Athletic and ready for a challenge; if you're looking for an adventure buddy who you can hike trails, run marathons, and go camping with, Marley is your dog.

Clifford

American Pit Bull Terrier Mixed Breed (Medium)

Male, Adult
Espanola, NM

Details
Spayed or Neutered,
Story
Clifford is a pint-sized ball of energy. A real snuggle bug, more than anything, he loves to play fetch and tug of war. House trained and great on leash, Clifford would do best as the only male dog in the home, and would make an excellent addition to an active family who enjoys lots of outdoor activities, followed by relaxing on the couch.

Blaze

Alaskan Klee Kai Mixed Breed (Medium)

Male, Young
Espanola, NM
Size
(when grown) Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
Details
Spayed or Neutered,
Story
Blaze is a handsome husky that is quite playful and full of adventure! He is a gentleman on leash and cherishes attention from the average stranger! He does well with other dogs and loves to play around with them! Blaze will indeed chase cats, so we would recommend a home without them. His ideal day would consist of a nice hike/walk to start, playing around with some other doggie friends, and ending the day with his favorite humans on the couch watching tv!
