Adopt A Senior - Sammy

Adopt A Senior - Sammy
Sammy is now 9 years old and is a good, but very shy, one-person dog. She would be excellent for a single-person household. A patient individual with a lot of doggy-know-how would be the ideal match. Sammy needs a secure, fenced yard. She tends to be dominant with other dogs, but can get along with them. Sammy came to our shelter from a rescue in Dulce.

Adopt a senior - Swayze

Adopt a senior - Swayze
Swayze has a "complex personality" -- He gets very attached to "his" people, LOVES playing with kids and is fun to watch as he entertains himself with his jolly ball and tries to get the attention of visitors with his squeaky toys. He's also good with other dogs. Meanwhile, when bonded with core people, he can become protective of his family and their space and can act suspicious and guarded where strangers are concerned. He would only be a candidate for adoption to the right person: someone who is very dog-savvy and would offer consistent and appropriate training and guidance around Swayze's guarding behaviors.  The ideal setting would be a low-bustle, predictable living situation, with few comings and goings of non-core people.  Swayze is around 8 years old. UPDATE: Swayze was recently diagnosed with Pemphigus Erythematosus.

ADOPT A SENIOR - Traveler

ADOPT A SENIOR - Traveler
Traveler has been waiting for "a person of his own" for a very long time. He has lived his entire life at Annie's Orphans, having been found as a stray with his mother when he was about 5 weeks old. They were both starving and close to freezing on the 5 degree morning of their rescue. As a quiet boy, he has been repeatedly overlooked. Traveler is a shy fellow and takes time to warm up, but is able to bond. He is good with most dogs. His preferred placement is a calm, quiet environment with no children. Traveler is on the small side of medium and is 10 years old. UPDATE: Traveler has developed swelling/arthritis in a front foot. He also had a tumor removed from his tongue. His paradoxical reaction to the surgery has been amazing, in that he is acting like a kid again -- animated, full of energy! Give this "seasoned" boy a chance for a great home!

Amber

Amber
This young, female dog was rescued, along with her brother, by a big-hearted individual who found the two -- needy and malnourished -- at the trailhead of Chaco Canyon. Amber is on the very small side of medium. She was quite skinny upon arrival and now is bouncing over to the other side, so an ongoing dose of puppy-style activity would be the best order-of-the-day for her. Amber has a sweet temperament and is around a year old. Following spay, this little girl is looking for a secure home where she will never experience abandonment and hunger again.

Andy

Andy
Andy has been receiving special training focus and is demonstrating a lot of growth! He is another of our fabulous Carolina Dog mixes and is sooo cute, with his huge ears and his lighter-colored mask! Andy came to us from an out-of-state shelter via foster-care. He is a bit shy, but definitely becoming more engaging. Andy is around 6 years old, and has had house-training in the past, but will need a refresher-course upon adoption. Contact us about this special boy!

Angela

Angela
Angela is a Heeler mix (probably, either Kelpie or Carolina Dog), approximately 3 years old, and came as a transfer from Tijuana. She is ginger colored, with a black saddle and muzzle. She is on the small side, and is fully vetted/negative on heart worm. Angela is great with dogs/kids/folks. She is easy on the leash, very responsive, and will make someone a fabulous companion.

Annabella

Annabella
Annabella came to us from a Denver shelter, via foster care. She is 7 years old, responsive and good on a leash. The exclusive focus provided to her by one of our dedicated volunteers has paid off in big ways: Annabella completed a doggie "manners" class and was a star pupil !! She has a lot of energy and benefits from good direction and consistency. She ABSOLUTELY LOVES people and is exceptionally good with kids. Annabella has very pretty features and lots of charm! Now, the reason she hasn't yet been adopted --with other dogs, Annabella is territorial of her space and can be dog aggressive. Although she has been doing much better in that department, she will prefer placement as a solo pet.

Charlie

Charlie
Charlie is a Dingo from Tijuana. He is a very handsome young fellow, approximately one year of age, with nice coloring and ears sized for function! He is good with dogs and children, but not with cats. Charlie is good-natured and active. He would probably be great in agility classes. He is able to scale fences, so potential adopters would need to have a secure yard. Charlie also will need more training on leash.

Clancy

Clancy
Clancy has returned to our shelter: He was adopted out as a puppy and -- now, three years later -- was returned due to injuring a small dog living nearby. Clancy is believed to be a mix of Shepherd and Carolina Dog, but also looks as if he may have some degree of wolf included in the mix. Due to the reason for his return, there is the question of how he might behave with small dogs, in general; but at our facility, he has seemed receptive. The same receptivity has been true of cats upon initial testing. We will be looking for a home with no small children. Clancy is very friendly and engaging with people and walks great on leash (but is evasive with being leashed-up, a behavioral issue around which he's currently receiving training). He is a beautiful, regal-looking guy of red-sable and white coloration. Clancy is around 5 years old.
