available for adoption:
Kahlua recently lost her (real) Mom, who made the trek up to Oregon from an overcrowded LA shelter with her. She is spunky, active, and can jump 2 to 3 feet straight up in the air. She's smart and learns quickly. So far she has learned to sit for her food and treats, which is super hard because she gets SO excited. She also picks up on the names of her toys, like "ball", "ducky", etc. With some continued training, you could have a real smart cookie on your hands! She loves food and plays fetch with her tiny tennis ball. If you hide treats and tell her to go "find" she will search through her blankets. She is potty/ pee pad trained. Kahlua does great on road trips and just wants to snuggle under the covers and play a little now and then.
She's been spayed and received a dental cleaning. Kahlua had to have mammary tumors removed over two surgeries, the last one at the end of Feb 2018. These will need to be monitored going forward, Being a little senior, she has a minor heart murmur (2/5), not requiring any special treatment and not slowing her down any. We are using various natural supplements to keep any itchiness under control (again, no drugs).
When she first arrived into our home, with several other dogs and a mellow cat, she was a little overwhelmed, but has adapted great to her furry housemates. No small children please.
We provide all our rescues with high quality nutrition (raw, home-cooked, and dehydrated real food like The Honest Kitchen) and appropriate supplements. We want to find them homes that will provide the same. They've been through enough already and high quality nutrition is key to healthy, long-living pets. If you can provide lots of TLC, high quality care, and preferably holistic Veterinary care, reach out.
