Creamy white. Juicy sweet. And one ear that stubbornly refuses to lay down -- or one that refuses to stand up, depending on how you look at it. How cute is that!
This 11-pound healthy addition to any lifestyle can be found in the medical room at the shelter, unfortunately. She's got a luxated hip joint which causes her to hop occasionally with her left rear leg -- so she should see an orthopedic vet for treatment. But, these things don't slow this doll down. She's a definite go-getter with personality galore. Watch her video and see.
1 1/2 year old Jicama was especially interested in an older dog that we had out that afternoon -- who outweighed her by 74 pounds and could be her great-great-grandfather in dog years. He was blase about her, though. This spirited girl enjoys cuddling in laps and being held close when she's not skipping about, sniffing and exploring. Medical staff have given a special request that she be saved. They see all the dogs that come through for processing and know a gem when she arrives. There's no shortage of individuality with Jicama. She's yummy and so in need to finding someone to appreciate her at last. Jicama's ID adoption number is A1364043.
Young, friendly, loves other dogs = Butler! Decked out in his black and white suit, Butler is there to assist with your every need. He's such a handsome boy, border collie lower half with speckles on his legs and chest, and a top half that bears some resemblance to a staffie, though his build is far slighter. He weighs only 38 pounds.
Butler is a shy boy who has an endless source of love inside, ready to be nurtured and developed. He came into the shelter as a stray and it's apparent from his walks that he is ready to get out roaming once again. Although this time, at the end of a leash with someone he trusts. Butler is energetic and delightfully buoyant when outside.
Back indoors, he's a gentle soul with a heart of gold. Butler gets along well with all of his kennel mates, looking to them for guidance. He would love to have a canine buddy who could show him the ropes and be his role model. If you would like a dog to keep the house tidy, attend to your to-do lists, and fulfill your dreams, Butler could be the one. Well, not sure about keeping the house tidy, but he's still a great dog. Butler is a year and a half young and his ID Adoption number is A1366167.
