|It's all in the name! Cutie! One of the few males from the "Royal" group (from a street named Royal in Bakersfield.... how fitting in a twisted way!) They are actually regal in a lot of ways - just friendly, beautiful babes. They were loved, but not spay/neutered or vaccinated, and then the girls all came into heat and were getting pregnant - and the folks came to the major realization that they had way too many dogs -- and were about to have more!
It's sad there isn't spay/neuter available and encouraged in poorer rural counties....
Thirteen dogs we took from this one home (via the Kern County Shelter, and we took many others at risk as well), they are super friendly and social - two very pregnant - one giving birth the night/early morning after arrival. It's a lot, but we are glad we could rescue them!
It will take a bit to get them all up to date and fixed etc. but they are truly delightful young dogs! We would like to place them in pairs ideally or to homes with time and another dog or two.
*FOSTER NOTES*-1/25/17- Curious is recovering nicely from his neuter surgery in his foster home.
Curious is a 14 pound, sweet, affectionate and very loyal dog. He is always happy and eager to great us when we come home and he loves to be in the same room with a human companion. He will follow whoever is home from room to room to watch them intently to see what is going on and "hang-out". He loves to cuddle and be pet and will gently nudge your hand with his muzzle so that you keep petting him. He mild-mannered, quiet (but full of life), and incredibly sweet.
He will make a great companion for any family or person who is ready to love him and give him all the attention he deserves. He has been a perfect house guest (in his foster home) and a terrific companion for our dog who is a smaller terrier mix. We feel SO lucky to have had the privilege of
We feel Curious would do well in a home with someone who is home fairly often, since he likes people so much. He would do well either alone or with another dog/dogs who are on the smaller size and not overly aggressive or territorial. He is very easy-going, happy and friendly. He enjoys meeting new people and is very social. He has been a bit more shy and skittish around men, but he warms up to anyone fairly quickly if they are not overly loud.
Curious is house-trained and loves going on walks. He walks very well on a leash. and he doesn't stray too far from the human who is walking him. He seems to pay close attention to everything that is going on around him on the street. He can be intimidated by bigger dogs and will stop and wait for them to pass. He does not appear to have been taught any commands (Sit, Down, or Stay), but he is very smart and engaged and he should learn these simple commands in no time.
$400 adoption fees - we'd appreciate any financial help, tax-deductible donations to assist with vet bills and all we do to care for these and so many more!
