Lacey is an 8 year old female with an incredible story. I an email from Ed Goodman at Tootsie’s Vision about this dog. She had been kept chained outside her whole life. Then the owners moved away and left her chained up. A neighbor got her and called Ed. Met Ed at the vet. The dog is totally wonderful. We got her eyes checked and her health assessed. Gave her shots and a chip.

She has some visual impairment, doesn’t see well at night, but is totally fine during the day. She is sweet, funny, loving and GRATEFUL. This is a darling dog. Gets along with other dogs although she does let them know she doesn’t dogs in her face. As you see, you got her groomed and she looks fabulous. This is a wonderful girl.

Let me know if you would like to meet her.



Tobey has come up from Calsbad. He is darling. He loves other dogs, loves people and thinks he has died and gone to heaven for being in a family.

He has a white face but we think he is actually only 5. He is very athletic and active.He is slender and his coat is short but will fill in with some great food.

He has had his shots, been chipped, is heart worm negative.

Let me know if you would like to meet him.


Joey is a 3.5 year old who was sent to us from Texas because he got really upset with storms. They figured we have fewer storms. 🙂

He is doing great and is romping with the others who are here. He hasn’t been troubled by storms and we think he is a fabulous guy. You can see the difference in his eyes since he is here. He is a very funny dog.

I would like to see Joey go to a family that has someone home during the day.

Email if you want to meet him

George is an 18 month old blond, big boy. The vet and I think he is a Golden/Pyrennes cross which makes for a nice combination. He is strong and athletic. He likes other dogs, likes to play. He is affectionate. Needs some training. He is a typical teenager who needs to have a lot of exercise.

This dog will NOT do well in a home with a small yard or with just having walks. He needs to have space to run.

He is neutered, chipped and has had all his shots.

Email me if you would like to meet him. Don’t ask to see him if you have not yet filled out an application please. :).

Lilly clearly is not a Golden Retriever :). She is a little over a year old. She was in the Valencia shelter, absolutely terrified. She was slated to be euthanized. I thought she was cute. It took a month for her to be willing to come out of the kennel. She was scared. She has made great progress.

She is chipped and has had her shots. She will do really well with someone willing to be patient with her. She is cautious and likes to watch. She is part Border Collie and Part Heeler. She runs really fast even though she has short legs, LOL. She likes to go walking. And likes to play with toys.

Let me know if you would like to meet her.

Noelle is a 5 year girl whose family moved to ABQ to settle into a retirement community. The husband died and caring for an active big dog was more than the wife could handle.

She is spayed, chipped and eager to please. Needs so training on leash walking but wants to please. Likes other dogs (she has been with 4 here) although sometimes she is edgy with girl dogs. She is a funny combination of rough and tumble and cautious.

email me if you would like to meet her.

Bella is a 3 year old girl who came from TN. She was phobic about thunder storms and they wanted to move her where there are not so many. We agreed to take her.

She is loving, funny and a real sweetheart. She wants to please. Needs to be with someone who can help her be calm with thuder. Has been spayed, chipped and has all her shots.

This is a very dear and loving dog.


Lucy is a 7 month old Golden Retriever Cross. We think she is a Golden, Borden Collie cross. She weighs about 35 pounds.

Her people brought her to us because she was jumping on their small child. Lucy is a high spirited little puppy with a lot of energy. She needs some training but there is a lot to work with. She wants to please, adores people and is quick to learn.

We are working on *house manners* which means no, you do not steal things off the counter, LOL. And you may not jump up on people. She is making great strides.

She is crate trained and has learned to sleep in the bedroom with the other dogs. She has had all her shots, been chipped and is ready to be spayed.

Email if you would like to meet her.
