Say hello to a little Champ . . .

Update on Champ 11/11/20:  Champ came to us with a large “cherry eye” that needed repair. He required 2 surgeries to get that done. This sweet little guy lived in a cone for 7 weeks and received eye drops 3 times/day (His foster mom is also a champ for taking such great care of him throughout his healing process). Even after he developed an ulcer on his cornea, he was happy and playful. His foster family says that he deserves a fantastic family. Champ gets along well with other dogs and he loves people. He is crate trained and is doing well on potty training. He does best in a home with a fenced yard. 


We aren’t sure of his breed mix, but Champ has physical characteristics of shih tzu and chihuahua. We were told that he was born 6/14/20. He and his brother were dumped out on a deserted road in the pouring rain. Luckily some awesome teenagers saw it happen, so the pups were brought to safety right away. The brother was adopted and the advocate asked us if we could help this little guy. 

He didn’t have a name so we just started calling him “champ” when working with him – and it stuck. He’s an active, sweet boy who likes to follow you and other dogs around. His adoption fee is $450 and includes his neuter, microchip, Bordetella vaccine, deworming and other vetting. If you’d like to meet Champ, please complete a Refuge Rescue application
