Phoenix in Loveland, Colorado

phoenix1 phoenix phoenix1

Through no fault of his own, Phoenix has had too many transitions in his 5 short years. This has left him timid, sad, and skittish but he is making great progress in foster care. He is beginning to seek affection, but is awkward in his attempts: likes to be picked up, but doesn't know how to be held, wants to sit on a lap or cuddle next to you on the sofa.

We are looking for a calm and patient home with at least one other dog and a fenced yard. He is sensitive to noises and sudden movement so we recommend a home with no children. He gets along well with other dogs and should be okay with cats. Patience is of the essence to help him continue to build his confidence and find the joy all Tibetan Terriers celebrate on a daily basis.

The best forever home for him will include him in family activities and work with him to become more and more comfortable in different scenarios and not coddle or feel sorry for him. It is likely that he will regress to some degree in a new home and his foster mom will work with the forever family with strategies to help Phoenix settle in as quickly as possible. He isn't a "perfect" dog but he is perfectly loving and will be perfect for someone. Phoenix has a lot of years of love, affection, and fun to offer those who are willing to put the time, thought, and effort into him.

We would like the adopter(s) to be open to hiring a behavioral, positive based dog trainer if help is needed with him.

   •   Neutered / Vaccinated / Microchipped / Just had a dental cleaning

   •   Housetrained (but may regress and will need to monitored closely in his new situation)

William and Caddi in North Central Colorado

wm&caddieWilliam & Caddi are 9 year old, bonded litter brothers. Happy and friendly, they act like teenagers. They get along well with other dogs, unknown with cats. They have not been exposed to small children so we are recommending only families with children over 7. Neutered, microchipped, UTD on vaccinations, housetrained, crate trained, good for grooming and they love to travel. William has protein losing enteropathy which is well controlled with medication and a low fat food and will need periodic blood tests. Medications will run approximately $30 a month. Their breeder is no longer able to care for them due to health issues but is willing to help financially with some of the expenses.
