Helllllo Gorgeous!! Gia came to us in January 2019 with 6 puppies. She has been living with our behaviorist and is learning to trust again after having an unfair start to her life. She is over a year now and is spayed UTD on all vaccines. Kate, who took the pictures started slow with Gia wearing her safety basket, and after around 10 minutes Gia knew she could trust her and the muzzle was removed. She was rubbing up on Kate and showing some love after that. What a remarkable dog that has been treated so unfairly in her past has learned to trust again. Gia is looking for a special home that will show her endless love and give her the home that she deserves.

Say hello to the adorable Fiona! She came to LPP with her brother, and they are both around 12 weeks old. They were found in a box with their littermates at a rest stop with their mama attached to a pole close by. A selfless good samaritan scooped them up and brought them home where they all received veterinary care and a quiet and safe place to grow! Once the puppies were ready to be separated from the mama, they asked if we could help by taking some of the pups into our program. We welcomed Fiona about 3 weeks ago and have loved seeing them experience the fall in Durango. She enjoys taking long walks, and will make an awesome hiking partner! They are true in heeler fashion in that they LOVE their people. They are always at your feet and like to keep a close eye on your whereabouts. She is excited to meet everyone, and loves to say hi! She will be an amazing companion dog. She been around children and has been very appropriate and gentle. She does best with a good routine and healthy boundaries. Her ideal home would have another dog, and be able to spend lots of time together either at home or out adventuring. Our guess is that they will be around 40-50 pounds full grown.
We are excited for everyone to meet Athena! She is a housebroken and adorable 7 year old mature Dachshund mix. She loves lounging in her soft bed or sitting in the window watching the bird feeders. She enjoys a daily short walk with you in the cool of the morning. Stubbie carries the sad scars of wearing a halter that grew into her skin. When she first arrived she was wary of strangers. Thankfully time and consistent love with no strings attached has brought her around, and we now see only her loving, kind and smart personality. This speaks highly of the type of forgiving dog she is. She barks alerts at door when guests arrive and it takes her a few treats from stranger to warm up, but once she does they are golden. Athena has been very appropriate with small children and like sized dogs. Large dogs seem to cause anxiety and she will bark. We have not seen her with cats. This beautiful girl is looking for a fenced yard home where she can choose to be active or not. Hiking and long walks on sidewalks arenít her jam. Sitting with you watching television or doing computer work is her joy. She is a fantastic companion who will listen to you all day. If you love Dachsies this is your girl.
