Bam Bam is a lively two-year-old Chihuahua and Plug mix who came to the Animal Care Facility in early May. His former family had to give him up, along with another dog, Chelsea, when the family was relocated.
His curious and cheerful disposition is contagious and he acquires many admirers on his walks. His tooth poking over his lip just adds to Bam Bam’s personality. He is Mr. Popular and loves to say hi to people and other dogs, which is probably from growing up in a home with another dog. Bam Bam loves playing with other dogs and it’s rare to have him bark at another dog.
Bam Bam loves to explore Coronado and no stone goes unturned for this curious pup. It seems like his walks just turn into a big sniffing session!
He loves attention and loving from anyone; he is friendly to every dog and person who he passes on his walks. Bam Bam would make an excellent companion to a canine or human. With his cheerly disposition and cuddly personality, Bam Bam would make a wonderful addition to any family without very small children.
Little Chelsea was relinquished to the ACF with Bam Bam. Their family had to relocate and could not take the dogs with them. We couldn’t quite figure out what breed Chelsea is, but she looks like a little Westie, a little Lhasa Apso and maybe a little Shih Tzu, too! All we know for certain is that she is darned cute. A lady came in with Ginger, her perfectly groomed cockapoo, because Ginger was in need of a companion. The two dogs met and got along very well. Because we knew the dogs were OK, we took Chelsea with us for the home visit. She had a ball checking out the trees and bushes and the real grass in the back yard. After inside and out was explored, Chelsea and Ginger began to play. The home has a long hall with shiny hardwood floors, just perfect for chasing a ball and each other. We left with happy hearts knowing Chelsea found a wonderful home.
Her new family has nothing but wonderful things to say about Chelsea. “Ginger could not be happier and neither could we … I feel so fortunate to have connected with Chelsea and really feel like it was somehow meant to be.”
Max was relinquished when his family started having children and could no longer give him the attention he needed. He is a beautiful brindle shepherd/malinois blend. A gentleman serving in the military just returned from a tour in Afghanistan and spotted Max on the website. He came in and Max instantly liked him. Max is very cautious around most men so this was very special. The gentleman had one problem. He had not yet found a place to live since his return. He asked us to please wait until he found a suitable place. Within three days of filing out the application, he found a perfect home and Max was adopted.
Max’s new dad is familiar with this breed as they serve along side the military in Afghanistan. There is a mutual respect between these two. Max has been to dog beach and loves the water. We knew this would be the case as Max and Merry wore themselves out playing in the small pool in the back yard. He has also visited a dog park and loves running and playing with the other dogs.
Fortunately for Max, he was with us for a very short time. Thanks to all who took such good care of him. His bio and picture resulted in the perfect new home for Max.
Together they make up a trio of fun personalities. Blueberry likes to lead the pack, Blossom doesn’t mind following along and Petunia prefers her own leash.
Walking the Three Amigas is never boring, they love to sniff and explore Coronado. They aren’t afraid of loud noises or other dogs, they just prefer to sniff an interesting bush.
Blossom has developed an interest in gymnastics; she can walk on two legs while she pees! Besides training to be the next Shaun Johnson, Blossom also loves to have her belly rubbed. Blueberry loves to sit in anyone’s lap, especially if they have a treat for her! Petunia is the most reserved of the three, but with a treat and kind words she’ll become your best friend.
The three Chihuahuas are from the same home and were found separately running around Coronado. They enjoy each other’s company and don’t bark and rough house with each other. Other dogs don’t bother the trio and would do excellent in a home with other pets. A household with older children would best suit each of the furry trio.
