Vern - ADOPTED
Meet Vern -- an adorable little love. He is a 1 year old chihuahua mix and looks like a mini black lab. He weighs about 10 pounds and is an absolute sweetheart.
Vern is part of a special story: in early December we rescued 15 dogs and 1 cat from a homeless encampment near Modesto. Their owner was forced to abandon them, and the dogs were captured by animal control and put on the euthanasia list, because no other rescue wanted to take in potentially feral dogs. Not knowing much about the dogs, Rescue the Underdog took a chance and saved all of them, including the cat!
As it turns out, all the dogs are super loving, attached to people, great with kids, get along with other dogs and cats. Vern is just the same! He likes to cuddle up with you and be pet. He easily learns commands like "sit", because he is eager to please. He’s playful but can also be calm. He is mostly house trained and follows the example of the other dogs in his foster home.
Vern loves little bacon treats and cookies. He’s ok going on walks but mostly wants to be pet and loved. He can go up stairs but might need a little help. He is in love with the toddler in his current foster home. Vern would be an absolute find for any family. He’s a total love.
Vern is neutered, up to date on vaccinations and microchipped. Please fill out an application and a volunteer will be in touch soon.
