Cora's Babies

Rose, gentle and bashful.

Romeo may cry when he wants you to pick him up.

Valentino, very lovable and affectionate.
Rose and her baby brothers, Romeo and Valentino, are precious Chihuahua puppies debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

You may remember their mother, Cora (pictured below), who was adopted last month. 

At the time of rescue from a suspected backyard breeder, Cora's babies were just 10 days old.  We placed mom and puppies in a nurturing foster home and they were raised and socialized with kittens and bunnies. 

Cora's puppies are now 3 months of age and spayed/neutered.  Please carefully puppy-proof your home and yard for their safety.

All three have temperaments best suited for a gentle home environment.

Cora, their mother, was adopted last month.

During pictures this morning Arabella was waving her front paw at the women she wanted to meet.

She is a large (71 pounds) young Dutch Shepherd mix, 1 year of age, spayed girl, housetrained, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

Some men, seemingly those wearing glasses, frighten her, and Arabella is also afraid of other dogs.

She was at another shelter that asked for our help.  Her previous family reportedly surrendered her for being "too playful" and they were refusing to let her on the furniture.

Arabella has tremendous potential in an experienced, gentle home where she can continue blooming.

Gregory -- Before & After

Gregory is a solemn, 13-year-old Maltese mix recovering from deplorable neglect. 

At the time of rescue he was at another shelter that asked for our help due to his eye infections and foxtail infestation. 

Gregory is steadily recovering weight and energy, but a very gentle home is what he needs.  He likes other dogs and may do best in a home with a calm sister or brother dog for companionship. 

Special thanks to Hair of the Dog Spa for his grooming transformation.

Roman -- Before & After

Roman is a tender-hearted Bichon Frise & Poodle mix debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

He is 4 years of age, neutered, good with dogs, and very friendly but also very shy. 

Roman was at another shelter that asked for our help due to being wounded (on his neck, cause unknown). 

He is now healed, and groomed (thanks to Hair of the Dog Spa), and ready to join a stable, loving forever home.

Love us dearly, forever.

Pompeii, baby boy, very fond of bonding with cats & dogs.

Bombay, baby boy, enjoys sitting in your lap for attention.

Cabaret, baby girl, delights in snuggling and cuddling.

Parquet, baby boy, likes to talk and answer your questions.
Cabaret and her brothers -- Bombay, Parquet, and Bombay -- have been lovingly raised and socialized in a nurturing foster home since their rescue. 

The babies are now 3 months of age, spayed/neutered, and debuting for adoption at Nevada SPCA.

Please kitten-proof your home carefully for their safety.

Uno awaits a hero.

Uno hopes you will let him melt your heart, as his physical disabilities in no way reduce his capacity to love. 

He is a young Chi-Weenie (Chihuahua & Dachshund mix), 1 year of age and neutered, good with other dogs, and awaiting adoption at Nevada SPCA.

We rescued Uno from another shelter.  He had sustained massive trauma (from an unknown source) resulting in partial blindness in his right eye and neurological damage.  Uno walks in a shuffling, crawling manner. 

When you tell him it's time for treats he throws his front arms up over his head in an enthusiastic Hallelujah! and his whole body wiggles with joy.

Special thanks to Pet'ographique for this wonderfully cute new portraits to help find a hero.
