Anyone up for a super sweet dog to foster?

by Joseph Romero on August 20, 2013


Name: Pepper
Breed: Chihuahua mix
Age: 1 year
Foster period: 2 weeks

Hi all,

Today I give you Pepper. Pepper is a little, sub 10-pound Chihuahua mix that is having a hard time bonding with people, especially men, which is the reason we are looking for a loving and patient home to help her build some trust. We’ve got a fun training plan that will help you do exactly that full of treats and playtime. Pepper is a really sweet dog that just needs to learn that people aren’t all that bad. And if you have another dog then Pepper would love your home all that much more. While she’s a little shy around people, she loves other animals. 🙂

So if you have the next 2 weeks available and would like to learn a little about dog behavior then this is the perfect dog for you.

Thanks again!

Antonio – the small dog with a big heart of love

by Lisa Hammock on August 13, 2013

Antonio 28557a     Antonio 28557b

Name: Antonio
Breed: Chihuahua
Age: 2 years
Foster Period: ongoing

Antonio, like his namesake Antonio Banderas, woos hearts wherever he goes. He is hoping to woo your heart enough to let him stay in your home for a while. As you can imagine, a “don Juan” such as Antonio really loves people, but doesn’t enjoy sharing them very much. For this reason, we are looking for a foster home with no other dogs.

Antonio recently came down with a stomach bug and became anorexic. Losing weight for a 6.5 pound dog is not a good thing! Luckily, we got him into a less stressful environment and higher fiber food. In no time, he was back to his old self again. We are hoping that putting Antonio into a foster home will ensure that he stays stress-free while still being able to find his forever home. We would love to be able to put Antonio into a foster home and still make him available for adoption on our website. When someone contacts us to say they are interested in meeting Antonio, then we can contact you and schedule a time that works for you to bring him in to meet his potential forever home! In this way, Antonio stays stress-free, people can still meet him, and you get to have this amazing foster dog in your home! It is a win-win-win for everyone!

Please let us know if you’d like to foster this amazing, little man!

Thank you,
Lisa Hammock
Medical/Foster Support Coordinator
