The Designer family consists of three males and a 6 month old female. These four dogs were dumped on an embankment where they stayed together for a couple of days until a rescuer spotted them in MX. The rescuer saw Chanel first who lead them back to the other three. They were all scooped up and brought to safety. We have seen several videos of them playing with other dogs. They like people and seek affection. They are nervous at first but warm up quickly. The rescuer who has them also reported they shared food and bedding without any issues.
When meeting them, they were happy and tails wagging. I took a wet cloth and washed Valentino’s face and he closed his eyes and soaked up the attention. They all took treats very gentle. They road nice in the car. They felt safe in the crate and took a long nap on the way to the Vets office. The leash was new to them and this was a big day. They will need time and patience to feel safe to go on walks. Please check back and look for updates as we learn more about them.
Update on Valentino: Valentino is a very sweet, easy going mellow boy. He loves attention and is very affectionate with his people (he loves to cuddle) and is always happy to see you. He has his times
of playfulness but not overly rambunctious and settles after a short time. He is low energy and
isn't into playing fetch.
Valentino needs a calm home with no small children. It is best for him to be the only dog because he's not fond of sharing his toys or food. Valentino is not a dog park kind of dog, but loves his walks and walks very well on the leash and is not leash reactive. He gets along nicely with other dogs when no toys or food are involved, but we have found he can be reactive towards intact male dogs.
Valentino is learning his basics and has been trained to come when called and is crate trained. In training he needs lots of patience, positive reinforcement and repetition to learn, as he takes a little extra time to pick things up. This super sweet, happy go lucky boy to have around will make the right family a wonderful, loving companion.
