Chihuahua mix, Neutered and up to date on every thing. He put him self on a risk for euthanasia with extreme aggression with strangers and in kennels. Our animal control officer told us about him and we asked to get a chance with him. What we saw when he landed in our home (where we let these dogs live with us and our pack to rehab) was completely polar opposite from what he showed in the kennel. He is the biggest baby who is quick to love every one. He loves loves loves peanut butter cookies. He is nocturnal so we are working on changing his inner clock. Full of energy he has the quickest tongue in the west and will give kisses with out warning. He is good with all the other dogs in our pack. Due to his history we would like to see him adopt to a family that would understand in stressful situations he will turn to aggression. He he is only two so with social skill building and the amount of love this dog has in his heart he would be the perfect dog for a family with older children. He is full of energy but will need introduction to walk in public and not be scared. He will need his new family to keep him safe from himself and the world. You may never meet another dog so full of love and gratitude for a kind hand and a warm bed.
Goblin – He comes in with very limited history. He is up to date on every thing and is very needy. Goblin seems to lack social skills. It has taken him a week to settle into the pack but he has figured it out. He is slow to love and trust but he does in his own time and once he does he is attatched forever. He is very scared of leashes yet. He is good in the house. Peanut butter cookies work to win him over. He is quiet and reminds of a hound in his behaviors and reactions to things with the confidence of a chihuahua. He is about 2 years old but some times is very puppy like and some times I look at him and swear he has an old soul. He likes it if you get on the ground with him and once he loves you all he wants to do is be near you and be loved. Very insecure right now. He is going to need a special home that will be quiet for him and help him socialize and learn that the world is safe. He will blossom with love and consistency.
UPDATE: 5/12/15 Today Sherri was adopted by a family! That’s right a family! We want to thank our kind donors and wonderful foster home provided by Larissa and Kristen. There is a bittersweet moment for each foster home to watch their foster join their new family, but it is a sweet thing to know that the place that Sherri is at tonight is her home. Thanks to the collaboration of donors, fosters, the rescue and the new adoptive family Sherri is HOME.
Today a very unlikely pup joined the Harmony family. She is looking for a real home but for now she is in a warm foster home. She has taken all the changes to her life today very well. She has met people, farm animals, cats all very well. She is very insecure and kept contact with the special young man that helped deliever her to our rescue. She is a super dog and did well with her assessment. She is now living in a real house with real every day stressors and she will be learning more about being a good dog. She is up for adoption but really needs some one that will commit for the long haul.
