- Adoption status
- Pit Pal
Dakota (the big brown male) and Riley (the brindle female) are probably one of the saddest cases we’ve had. We get hundreds of calls and emails for pleas for help. This pair had been running loose in a suburb of San Antonio, TX. for about a year. No one could get near them because of their fear of people.
As if that wasn’t bad enough, they had gotten into a tussle with a porcupine and their eyes, face, mouth, tongues were filled with painful quills.
As the good samaritan watched the infection grow with each day, we were all finally able to network with a wildlife rescue who were able to trap them (http://www.wildlife-rescue.org).
Villalobos drove down to Texas and picked up the shy couple. Though sweet, they are still so afraid of people but at least now realize they are safe.
This devoted pair is available for adoption but they would have to remain together and with no other dogs in the home. They will also need a very patient owner as it takes them “a minute” to warm up to you and regain trust. But once they do… they are wonderful!
