Island Dog from Puerto Rico! Meet Luquilla! We originally rescued her pregnant mom off the Luquilla Beach in Puerto Rico 3 yrs ago. Luquilla and her siblings were born the day after we rescued her. Luquilla was the first pup adopted! Unfortunately thru no fault of her own Luquilla needs to find a new home. Her family is getting divorced and her dad works 10-14hrs a day so the situation is not fair to her.
Luquilla has been back in our rescue for a few weeks and has been slowly coming around:)The transition from living with her family to losing her home and moving to an apartment, then to rescue has really been hard on her. Once she gains your trust she is a lover! She has been fabulous around my cats, showing little to no interest and when they run by she doesn't care. She has met our 14yr old male shepherd mix, her sister and my female cockatoo. She did fabulous with all of them. I am hoping she can go to a home with another neutral dog since she does have more confidence around them. It's the cutest thing, Luquilla will talk to you, not barking but a little hound like whining sound! She has been great with my 3 yr old but i can see the quick movements make her uneasy so a home with dog savvy children 5 and up would be best. She is 3 yrs. old (March 5 2010 is her actual birthday), spayed and up to date with her Distemper, Rabies and Lepto shots. We will be taking her into the vet to get her Bordatella shot soon. Luquilla is all legs and weighs 56 lbs but needs to lose about 5 lbs so she is a medium sized dog. We require a secure fenced in yard and an adoption application including veterinary references. Luquilla's ideal home will be with someone who stays home for much of the day and a family that will be patient and understand she will take a little time to warm up to you. All of the Island dogs have very unique personalities and once you win them over they are the most loyal loving dogs ever. if you have any questions or would like to fill out an application please email me at: email@example.com Thanks for considering a rescue dog!
