Weighing in at about 17 pounds makes Duffy on the small side physically, but there is nothing small about his personality! Duffy is a senior terrier mix who takes pleasure in all the little things life has to offer. He loves food and will spend a good amount of time working a Kong or other food puzzle to earn his meal.
April showers don’t bother Ruth at all. This petite two-year-old little girl recently came to the Sanctuary from a partner organization in Tuba City, Arizona. She is settling into life at Dogtown and every day brings her a new experience. A sudden light snow squall isn’t anything new for the dogs here in the high desert. But a photographer in sandals who was unprepared for the cold was.
Happy, joyful, full of fun, all Lab. All these words describe Priscilla perfectly.
Priscilla must sport an e-collar to allow a spot on her flank to heal. The best guess is that she had a bug bite there that was itchy. She made it more itchy by chewing at it and couldn't leave it alone. The e-collar instantly prevented her from being able to reach that spot, and the healing began.
Ted was resting rather elegantly under a tree in his run a few days ago. Ted is an English pointer who came to Best Friends from an overcrowded shelter. Pointers have a noble and classic air about them. Ted does, too. Until his ball rolled off, and then he was absolutely transformed into the class clown.
Ever wonder how we choose names for the animals at the Sanctuary? They get a name when they arrive — before we really know them — and sometimes it’s challenging! Naming Holy Moly though was easy. This big, gorgeous, rambunctious boy was rowdy. When he gets the zoomies you can’t help but scratch your head and mutter, “Holy moly.”
Congo knows how to lay on the charm. He has great manners, gets along with most other dogs and is a googly-eyed love bug who aims to please. Congo has been with us since 2012. He was in a prison dog program, but he was young, and that environment was a little too chaotic for this sensitive guy. He arrived with some behavioral baggage, but in the years since, he has worked hard to overcome them. He recently went on his first sleepover with a volunteer and it was a complete success.
Tabasco is a petite female hound. She’s about four years old and loves nothing more than to play fetch. She’s sweet, a bit silly and eager to please. She came to us from a neighboring community. Seems she’s been an outside dog, but we have high hopes that she’ll get the hang of life inside a home.
