They call me : Luna

Predicted Breed: Chihuahua mix.
Sex: Neutered male.
Approximate Age: 4 years
Weight: 10 Lbs.
Rescued from: Los Cabos, Mexico
Likes: Treats, walks, licking you, toys
Dislikes: Baths, larger dogs
Ideal Home: Luna probably would like a dog friend around her size but also does perfectly fine on her own. Unsure about children as she tends to try and lick faces excessively
Energy Level: Medium.
Experience with Kids: Unknown.
Experience with cats: Unknown.
Medical Needs: None at this time.
Training Needs: Luna is potty trained and will sit, dance around and touch your hand when asked.

Knows sit, House broken

From Luna's Foster: 

Luna is a little dog with a great personality. She loves to play with her toys and run around. She goes nuts for treats and dinner time. Luna is fully house trained and has not had any accidents. She spends most of the day sleeping in her bed while I work nearby. If you are looking for a mostly calm but very hilarious little dog, Luna is for you.

They call me : Mario

Predicted Breed: Orange Cabo street mix
Sex: Neutered male.
Approximate Age: 2 Years
Weight: 42 Lbs.
Rescued from: Los Cabos, Mexico
Likes: Being outside, making a mess with all the toys, treats, ear rubs, morning cuddles, pouncing in the snow, being goofy
Dislikes: Aggressive dogs, stairs, loud vehicles (garbage trucks, motorcycles, etc.), unfamiliar sights/sounds while outside
Ideal Home: Mario would do well in a more active home with a family that likes to spend time outdoors and/or has a yard for him to run around in. He would probably prefer older human siblings (8+ years old) as he seems to react to smaller humans when they are running, yelling, etc. While he gets along with our resident dog, he initially tried to assert dominance so his behavior with another dog in the home would depend on the other dog and a slow introduction would be best.
Energy Level: Medium - high
Experience with Kids: Yes 12+
Experience with cats: Yes
Medical Needs: currently being treated for elrhichia
Training Needs: Mario is very smart and a quick learner. We are currently working with him on how he reacts to other dogs on walks. When he first arrived at his foster home, he had a barking match with a very aggressive dog and ever since then, he has been barking/lunging at other dogs he sees while outside regardless of how they're acting. We think this is a defense mechanism so he doesn't have another incident. He seems to have a "comfort zone" and won't react if the other dog is a certain distance away. We have been using treats as a reward/distraction - he is doing well with training techniques including look/look away, check in and "YES". Mario also briefly growls (and sometimes barks) inside when he hears and/or sees something unfamiliar but we are teaching him that he doesn't need to do that and he's getting better with this.

Knows sit, Knows stay, Knows other commands, House broken, Crate trained, Leash reactivity, Barks indoors, Barks outdoors, Prey drive, Fearful, Protective, Chews, Destructive

From Mario's Foster: 

Don't let his weight fool you - Mario is a big suck! He is such a sweetheart and just wants to be loved. He has been doing great with us and our 8 year old resident dog. He seems to have a lot of pent up energy and would likely benefit from regular runs at the dog park or even some agility training. Also, training classes with other dogs present would be worth looking into - we want Mario's forever family to enjoy going on walks with him and don't want him to have to avoid other dogs his whole life. While he's not perfect, we know he has the potential to be a good boy with the right family as long as they are committed to working with him on his training needs.

They call me : Sherry

Predicted Breed: Terrier mix.
Sex: Spayed female
Approximate Age: 1 year
Weight: 35 Lbs.
Rescued from: Los Cabos, Mexico
Likes: Bones, stuffies, treats, playing with foster sis.
Dislikes: Quick motions. Coming back inside.
Ideal Home: Any home where she can have the time to learn the rules of the house. An other dog to show her the ropes will help.
Energy Level: Medium.
Experience with Kids: Unknown.
Experience with cats: yes
Medical Needs: None at this time.
Training Needs: She can be crated for 8+ hours. Good left out for an hour so far.

Crate trained, Shy, Fearful, Chews

From Sherry's Foster: 

Sherry is getting used to being around people. She is starting to accept attention and petting. With a little bit of patience she will be a great addition to a family. Food as well.
