Cowboy's Story

A little Mom dog was rescued, along with 5 younger puppies, from a mobile home park in Los Banos. It was clear that this little 3 year old sweetie had a litter of puppies in the last 6 months. Her dachshund/rat terrier puppies  were rescued too but they had no in-home manners, They had been born at the park and are now just over 1 year old. They were all sweet little dogs but are initially shy of new people and hands. They are all spayed/neutered, vaccinationed to appropriate age, and microchipped.0 They needed to unlearn the bad manners they had developed and learn the good manners they would need to be great companion animals. That took time and patience. Cowboy craves attention and loves to be petted and praised for his good behavior. Cowboy is a real ladies boy! He is scared of men. Men must be patient and earn his trust but he is so worth the effort! This little boy is so ready to be with his special family. Has your family been waiting patiently for a special little dog to become a member of your family?
