Pickle and his buddy Pepper came in as strays. Pickle is a seven month old white bundle of fluff with a perpetual smile. A couple who had come to Coronado for lunch saw the two being walked and really liked Pickle. A persistent dog walker convinced them to bring their nine year old lab, Otis, in for a meet and greet. Otis and Pickle got along well, but the family was concerned that because Pickle has such short little legs, he would not be able to navigate their terraced yard. The persistent dog walker asked them to give Pickle a chance.
We delivered him to the family at the same time we did the home visit. Pickle had no problem with the steep stairs and terraced landscaping. Pickle, now Buster, races up and down the terraces like a mountain goat. In less than 30 seconds he learned to go through the doggie door; he simply followed Otis. When we called them back, the two of them squeezed through the small opening together. We left Buster in his new home, and he never looked back.
Buster’s family loves boating and camping. The lucky dog already has his very own life jacket. He sleeps in his own bed next to Otis by the fireplace. We are so happy for this little guy!
Bam Bam was relinquished to the Coronado Animal Care Facility along with his pal Chelsea when his family relocated. He is a Chihuahua/Pug mix, with perhaps a bit of Miniature Pinscher throw in, Bam Bam weighs just over 12 pounds and is about two years old.With his tooth poking over his lip, he looks like a miniature gangster. However, nothing could be farther from the truth. This little guy is a love and likes to snuggle in your arms. When not in your arms, he can be found practicing his field and track. He can jump straight up nearly five feet! It is a delight to see him spring his way through the yard, so enthusiastic and full of life. He is a sweet boy and would do well in most any home except one with very small children. This little guy is truly a happy go lucky dog who gets along with everybody.
Please come visit Bam Bam soon! The Coronado Animal Care Facility, located at 1395 First Street, next to the Ferry Landing is open every day between 9:00 am and 4:00 pm (except holidays). If you are interested in an adoption, you must first complete a dog adoption application and meet with a PAWS of Coronado Dog Adoption Counselor.
Dobby is is a nine year old chihuahua, weighing 9 1/2 lbs. This little man was relinquished to the Coronado Animal Care Facility after the death of his owner because the immediate family could not continue to care for him. Since Dobby is used to a home with a family, he makes an excellent companion. He is quiet and calm and loves to be with his people. This little guy likes nothing more than to curl up and relax by your side. If you are looking for someone to calm your nerves at the end of a busy day, Dobby is the dog for you. He is a gentle soul and is used to a quiet home; another house without hectic activity would probably work best for Dobby.
Come take time to introduce yourself to Dobby! The Coronado Animal Care Facility, located at 1395 First Street, next to the Ferry Landing is open every day between 9:00 am and 4:00 pm (except holidays).
