Little Dog Overload..want one?

Postby violet » Sun Aug 23, 2009 10:54 pm

So..I got whined and wheedled into finding foster space for a few dogs since a particular shelter apparently has an overabundance, and despite adoption fees being only ten bucks, they are euthinizing 70% of the dogs. Soo...DRAW took 5 new dogs. First the chiahuhuas. Black and white is Chipper, he is about 5 years old. VERY sweet and positively adorable and a whopping 4.5 pounds. Chipper does walk funny due to what seems to be either a genetic defect OR possibly from being overconfined prior to landing in the shelter. His femur in both back legs is actually curved so he walks with his legs tucked under him and on his toes. It's bizarre to see. But the vet is certain it causes him no pain. He is VERY VERY sweet and cuddle. he just wants to be loved.

Next is Rico..he wore a diamond..oh wait.....THIS Rico wears spikes! And is darned cute. At a whopping 4 pounds he is a cuddly snuggly little bundle of lovin! Right at a year old and ready for romance. Rico likes other dogs and does ok with cats. He adores all humans. Comes when called. impossible to get pictures of because he rarely holds still!!

Now JRT mix Sarah. If you are looking for an energetic pal..she could be the one. She is all JRT about life. Has a serious go get em attitude but sweet as pie to go with it. She is VERY cute as well. All of which adds up to a great little dog. 2 years old and 12 pounds. Super cute, super fun and super smart. Loves to play like a wild child with other dogs.

Aww there's Summer-girl!! Thanks again for taking her in Violet, I'd have made room to get her back, but she'll find a home quicker over there, I know :)

She actually has a very serious potential adopter. So..cross everything. I have enjoyed the hell out of her these last few weeks but she needs her own home.

Uhoh...you DO know we' are looking for a little guy to add to our family, don't you? I will show these boys to DH and see if anything catches his eye. How are they with other dogs? Housebroken? PLEASE tell me they don't mark in the house? DH will NOT want that (me either). I have only had bitches, so a boy is new territory in our house. Andddd....Tacoma isn't that far from us!

I forgot--how about cats? Both of my cats are bigger than these two, but I want to make sure they don't get harassed too much until the new guy settles in!

Sorry..got excited and missed your questions.

They are doing some marking which is OT surprizing at my house at all. They also are not yet neutered (appointments this week for all) So far, good with non rude dogs. but I had a whole lotta testosterone going on here earlier and everyone was snarky with each other. once they got taken individually, they were tons better. Showed interest in playing. but still a bit in shock after the chaos of their last couple of weeks. (shelter, to stranger to long long ride to another stranger)

They were tested with cats at the shelter. Will be testing further here once they settle in. All of them passed the cat test at the shelter.

How much is the adoption fee? I know they have to be neutered, so it must be more then the original $10.00 you posted.

Chipper is 150 and Rico is 200. They have already been wormed, rabies, chipped, heartworm tested, and had general health workups. All thats left is the neuters.

Is Sarah really the tan girl in the pic? I don't see JRT in her. Not that it matters because she's darned cute!

I DO have kids, but they are 16 and 17, so I doubt they would be a problem for little dogs. They are good boys and get along well with all sorts of animals. Also, as you well know (from posts on here) that Gypsy loves other dogs and gets along with pretty much everybody. She is VERY careful with small dogs and puppies.
