Camo (Adopted!) Introducing our newest rescue! He is about 8 months old and weighs 39 lbs. This is one very happy guy who thinks the world is one big playground. He loves people, and enjoys meeting and playing with other dogs. Camo is definitely a ball dog, who doesn't seem to tire of chasing and fetching the ball. We were told that he was somewhat house trained, but finding maybe not so much ;-) He walks fairly well on leash, but zig zags a bit.
He was surrendered to the shelter by an owner who left this pup alone for over 8 hours each day in an urban dwelling. As a result, due to his fear that he will be left alone, Camo will try to be your own personal shadow. He needs a home where he will feel secure and be reassured that he won't be abandoned. Still a pup, Camo is very much a blank slate, with much to learn. He is very smart and observant, and will be easy to train. We just LOVE this dog, and believe this gem, who just needs a bit of polishing, will be adopted quickly!
Cheyenne (ADOPTED) (reddish brown, hazel eyes) is approximately 8 months old, weighs 43 lbs, and is happy and friendly. He is extremely well mannered, with a soft, gentle, compliant, and outgoing disposition. Cheyenne loves people and being close to you. He is still learning what the world is all about and needs people who will introduce him to new things and help him build some confidence. He was a tad scared when in the noisy shelter environment and tends to hide behind people when things get too busy for him. He is very playful, responsive, and eager to please. Cheyenne loves treats, playing outside, and learning about toys. He plays well with other dogs, and is a good follower. He tends to be submissive to other dogs. Cheyenne takes direction extremely well. He is learning to sit and lie down, and walking on a leash. He is an awesome dog and would be the perfect companion. Everyone who has met this handsome boy loves him!
Kahlua (ADOPTED) is now living with her new mom and two pre-adolescent children, and enjoys being part of family outings and activities. She loves to meet new people and roll over on her back in hopes of getting a belly rub or two!
Kahlua is a Kelpie mix, about 1 year old, weighing 50 lbs. She loves being outside and is a playful, happy girl. Kahlua is very responsive to and focused on people, and loves attention. She will roll over for belly rubs, and has a very gentle, even tempered, calm and relaxed disposition. Kahlua is extremely sweet and quiet. She will learn quickly, as she is very smart, eager to please, and responsive. Kahlua has an excellent way with other dogs. She is an active girl who has a wonderfully balanced and stable disposition, coupled with a zest for life. She loves toys, and is very much a ball dog. Kahlua is a fabulous dog for a family that wants an intelligent, playful, herding breed dog, without the intense, constantly busy personality.
Zeus, whose new name is Wiley, had been at a shelter for a month before we found him. The shelter people thought he was such a great dog that they couldn't bear to put him down and asked for help to place him. We immediately stepped in and brought Zeus to HITTGV. He is a very smart dog and already knew most of the basic commands like sit, lie down, stay, come, roll over, high-five, and probably more that we don't know about. He has a happy, calm, relaxed and easy temperament; but when you turn on his "play" switch, you can see he was born to play. He is now happily ensconced on a large vineyard property with his other four legged siblings.
