Nellie

Nellie

Nellie is a sensitive soul who shows her love and affection in the most tender ways. Three years old, Terrier Mix. Shy at first, with tail tucked neatly under and wrinkles of worry on her brow, she does not like sudden movements or loud noises which can send her scurrying. However, she does like to be in close proximity to people and other dogs and once she knows you have her best interests at heart, she will warm right up–cuddling on your lap, reaching her paw out ever so gently for scratchies under the chin or at the base of her tail. She is quiet and does not bark, even when her pack mate is barking at full tilt. She loves to go on walks and sniff the grass and has quite the prance once she gets going. She travels well in the car and loves her treats. You know you’ve won her heart when her little tail goes straight out and waggles at full speed.

Nemo

Nemo

This little guy is pure love and wants nothing more than to be loved in return.  Okay, well, he also would love a soft bed and and a blanket to snuggle.  He is the perfect house guest: sweet, quiet, potty and crate trained.  He gets along well with other dogs (our golden retriever and chihuahua) and all sorts of people.  He’s a little shy at first if he’s approached but will happily run up to meet new people and dogs.  He enjoys outings to the park and exploring the backyard but he is still unsure of walking along busy streets.

Nemo had a run in with a car which didn’t go well.  He lost his back left leg (we call it his “lucky fin”) which probably explains his fear of car traffic.  He has adjusted well to life as a tripod.  He gets along just fine with his three legs and nothing makes him happier than to hang out with his people.  Due to his small size and three legs, he would do best in a home with older children (10+) and one that will be able to accommodate his slower pace while still giving him lots of opportunities to socialize and play.

Nemo is a love bug who will give you all the sweet tail wags, snuggles and kisses you never knew you were missing.  One look into his soulful eyes and you know he’s someone special.

Well, I’m a 1 year old male Chihuahua.  I may appear to be uncertain at first, but I will quickly warm up to you and yours! I enjoy rides in the car, often sitting in your lap, or with my dog buddies. I like walks on leash. At home, I like to hang out in my dog bed or on your lap, or with another dog. If you escort me outside on anice day, I enjoy being in the sun. I do better when either my people friends or another dog buddy is around. will play with another buddy dog! When its time for bed, I’ll crawl into my dog bed, preferably in the same room as you, and/or sleep on/in your bed!

In the morning, I will wait until youre ready to “potty” and feed me. Oh, and I only bark, when someone is at the door, or there’s a strange sound coming from outside, etc. I’ll show you my appreciation with wags and/or a mild stretch and stand to signal I want “up.” SoI don’t require much, just a lap, walks, routine and love! Hope you will take a chance and see what a truly faithful, sweetsilly, and cuddlycompanion I could be to you and yours! Thanks for reading about me.

Mariposa

Mariposa

Mariposa is our guest dog of the Month.Here is Robin, the rescuer’s story about Mariposa.

“Mariposa was rescued from the streets of Costa Rica by Lya Battle from Territorio de Zaguates When I met Mari at Territorio de Zaguates, I was charmed by her personality and affection. It was clear Mariposa needed some individualized medical help so I sponsored her trip to the veterinarian. In March, Mari received a clean bill of health and was flown here to join her foster family where she lives with her 3 brothers. We named her Mariposa (Spanish for butterfly) because she became a beautiful dog both inside and outside!

Mariposa was rescued from the streets of Costa Rica by Lya Battle from Territorio de Zaguates Mari is quite the domesticated dog, she loves soft blankets, balls, chew toys and going on walks.   Mari is potty trained. She is very good when walking on leash, however if she sees a squirrel or wild turkey, hold on tight!   Although, she starting to prefer treats over the squirrels. 😊

Mari is not fond of cats, she puts them in the same category as “squirrels”. Mari likes to be the queen of the pack. As long as the other dogs in the house are submissive and don’t mind Mari stealing their toy, they should get along fine. Mari currently lives with a German Shepherd, lab mix and Schauzer mix.”
