Helping death-row, abused, and neglected dogs find forever homes. We do not discriminate by breed, age or special needs. As long as we’re capable of helping out, we will never say no!
Meet Chigo! Chigo is overflowing with love and energy to give to his forever home! Adventures during the day and cuddles at night for this guy. He’s happy, curious, and playful with people and dogs after proper introductions. He was hesitant about the current foster’s male dog, but after a proper introduction, he was very playful with him.
He’s smart and catches onto routines quickly. Chigo remembers the route to home after only 1-2 walks. He LOVES car rides and is potty trained. He loves pets and praises. He could be the only dog in the house or in a home with 1+ dogs but will need to be monitored. He does have resource guarding with his foster sibling with meals and toys he wants to chew on while laying down, so he needs his owners to advocate for his space. He is good at not fighting over treats when each dog gets their share. He will need dedicated and continual training with leash walking, crate, and separation anxiety, but he’s very food motivated and eager to please. He currently knows to go into his crate to eat and is getting used to being crated on a schedule (8:30am-12pm, 1pm-5pm, 8pm-11pm, 11pm-7:30am). He’s fascinated with toys like balls and plushies.
With walking, Chigo’s curious about dogs, people, and new sounds, so he’ll stop to take a look at them. He seems cautious regarding loud sounds like fire trucks but does not seem scared. He did not seem to mind a motorcycling zooming through a neighborhood or some construction work. He does get startled outside when a loud noise is too close to him like a trash bin closing or the sound of walking on a metal grate. He was scared and cautious when a small child was running towards his direction with a bike. It seems easy to get his attention away from something he’s staring at during walks and is good at taking treats outside. He knows “sit” so far. To walk with only a collar, he’ll need training since he pulls when he’s excited and wants to smell.
He’s a dog that needs a lot of mental stimulus and exercise throughout the day. A home best suited for him is one with a backyard, preferably as an only dog or with an experienced multi-dog home. He could be in an apartment but needs quick access to go outside since he will need to be taken out at least 4+ times a day. We are looking for a home who understands the responsibilities of owning and raising a dog as a member of their family. Chigo is patiently waiting!
If you have extra time on your hand and would like to help please consider volunteering! Rescue groups need dedicated volunteers to help with events, fundraisers, home checks, transports, etc. All of these things help enable the rescue to expand their network and help more dogs in need.
