Nitro is an amazing dog! He walks well on a leash and would make an excellent buddy to play ball, jog with you or catch a Frisbee. He used to live with a cat and currently lives with several other dogs. He's got a loving personality and just wears a big goofy grin when he's happy. Consider giving Nitro a forever home!

Noah and his sister were found as young puppies abandoned.  We think that Noah is part Black Mouth Cur.  He is very smart and active!  Consider adding him to your home today.

Rachel (F)  Estimated DOB: 11/20/2016

Meet Miley!  This bundle of energy was placed into a cardboard box and left on someone's car when she was about 5 weeks old.  We got the call and one of our fosters went and picked her up.  She has blossomed in her foster home!  Miley is rambunctious and full of energy.  She loves to snuggle with her foster mom.  She will do well in a home with another playful dog. 

Noah (m)  Estimated DOB: 11/20/2016

Given away for free on Craigslist and then dumped in the desert, these two puppies were found by one of our former adopters.  They will need to get all of their shots, so will not likely be available until the October time frame.

We did another photo shoot with the Corgi mix puppies today... these precious puppies are almost 12 weeks old and are ready to move into their pre-adoptive homes. We finalize the adoptions when they are spayed/neutered at about 6 months of age.  Shea is an amazing puppy.  She loves playing with her brother Wrigley!

Malcolm is a newly rescued puppy who is doing well in his foster home.  We will post more about him as we learn more about his personality.  He will not be ready to placed into a foster-to-adopt home until sometime in October when he had enough vaccinations.

Tumbler came to our rescue a few years ago.  We believe she suffered nerve damage after being tossed into a ditch.  She can get around, but hops and sometimes slips as she gets around depending on the surface she is walking on.  She is looking for a home that will understand her special needs.

Jasper (m) Estimated DOB:

Ashland (f) DOB: 2/4/2014

Miley (f) Estimated DOB: 09/19/2016

One of our former adopters manages a ranch that is several miles outside of Las Cruces.  He was out checking on things at the ranch when he saw three dogs -- obvious litter-mates because they all looked alike.  He called to them.  Two of them ran off due to fear.  The third one came towards him.  He reached out to us and we agreed to take Miler into our rescue.  In the time that we have had him, his personality has blossomed.  He is all-smiles now!  He gets along with every dog that we have introduced to him.  He is an active dog who would benefit from a home where he will get sufficient exercise. 

Jeb (m) Estimated DOB:

Yoda and one of his siblings were thrown out of a pickup truck in a box.  One of the puppies was injured, but the finders kept it and got it medical attention immediately.  We were asked to take in Yoda and help find him a home.  He is adorable, but still very young.  He will likely be unavailable for adoption until October, thus giving him time to receive most of his vaccinations.

Weston is a small dog who loves to play.  He also enjoy snuggling alongside his foster family on their couch.  He is adorable and eager to please. 

Merlin is a wonderful dog who suffered from distemper as a puppy.  The distemper led to him suffering from periodic seizures.  However, he is doing well on medication and looking for a home willing to take on a special needs dog.  His treatment involves a vitamin regimen, daily anti-seizure medication, and an understanding home who will just cuddle him after any seizure episodes.  We are hoping to find a home in the local area so we can work on a slow transition for this amazing guy.  He loves playing and gets along well with other dogs!  He is a sweet and loving boy who will steal your heart!  Please consider making this boy a part of your family. 


Zipper(f)  Estimated DOB: 12/4/2016

Zandy was found in someone's yard with one of her puppies but it was obvious that she had several more.  Her other puppies were never found.  Zandy is very energetic and intense so would do well in an active home or with someone who will take her to training.  She is a happy girl and an excellent ball player.  She is playful and thrives on attention.

We have many dogs/puppies looking for forever homes, this page is in alphabetical order (except for dogs that are listed on our bonded pairs page).

M Puppy 1   Estimated DOB:

Denton (m) DOB: 12/21/2017

Archie (m) is one of the bunch of terriers we recently pulled from the shelter.  He is a fun and loving little guy!  He gets along great with other dogs.  He needs an adopter with a high fence.  He is able to jump over a 4 foot wall.  He will do best in a home where he has at least one doggy playmate. 

This little guy was caught wondering onto one of our volunteer's property.  We were unable to locate his owner and got him some medical attention that he needed when he was found.  He looks to be a chihuahua mix and although he is little, he has a huge personality.  He gets along well with other dogs.  He loves playing and getting attention from his foster dad.

Given away for free on Craigslist and then dumped in the desert, these two puppies were found by one of our former adopters.  They will need to get all of their shots, so will not likely be available until the October time frame. 

Drake's family was dumped at the shelter on the day their were born along with their mother.  Drake has lived his entire life in our rescue.  He is looking for a forever home that will offer him some room to play and have other dog friends available to play with.  He has such an amazing personality. 

We DNAed Drake and the results were: ½ Staffordshire Terrier, ¼ German Shepherd, and ¼ Labrador Retriever. 

Tank was found running scared.  We aren't sure exactly what happened to him, but we were glad to find him.  He hasn't let it impact his sweet personality.  Tank does suffer from some separation anxiety, so he would do better in a home where someone can be around most of the time.

Malarkey was dumped at the shelter and scared.  Because he was nervous, they considered putting him down.  Thankfully they called our rescue before doing so.  This little guy is cute, but takes a bit of time to warm up to new people.  He loves his foster mom!  He will need a transition period to get used to his forever home.  Because he is cautious with new people, we do not recommend he go to a home with children. 

Zandy (f)  Estimated DOB: 03/01/2016

Wiggles is a fun dog who gets along well with others.  His name fits him well because he is always happy and wiggles about when excited.  Help us find him the perfect forever home.  He promises to be a good boy!

Ashland (f) is an amazing dog that's mother was found by border patrol about to have puppies.  One of the border patrol agents, paid to get that mother into boarding, so that she could have her puppies in a safe environment versus the desert.  Ashland is a bit scared/nervous so she needs an adoptive home that will work with her.  She has such an amazing personality once she is comfortable.  She is a shepherd mix, but is more petite in size than a full grown shepherd.    

Dalls (m)  is one of our hound puppies.  We pulled his mom Springer from the shelter and later found out  that she was pregnant.  Springer had 13 hound puppies!  Dallas is an amazing puppy, playful, but also willing to nap and relax.  He will do well in a home that will continue to teach him good manners and make sure he gets plenty of exercise.  Consider adopting this amazing hound puppy today!

Bebe DOB:   06/15/2003

Cassie was found a matted mess, but we got her groomed and in a foster home and she really showed her amazing personality.  She was adopted out with another small dog but was returned to the rescue when she lost some mobility in her hind end (we are not certain what exactly caused this to occur).  She still runs and plays with other dogs, but sometimes needs a little help navigating tricky surfaces.  Consider meeting Cassie today, you'll fall in love with this cutie.

Mama Mia Claire was relinquished to the shelter with her litter of puppies.  Her puppies were sent to a rescue in Oregon so Mama Mia could begin heartworm treatment.  She is now heartworm free and ready for her very own FOREVER home.  She has lived with other dogs, a cat, and kids.  This high-energy girl needs an active family.  She loves attention & affection. 


Maui is a sweet girl that deserves a family of her own.  She will thrive in an environment where she gets a lot of attention and love!  Prior to coming into our rescue, she had been bred several times.  When she came to us, she was severely obese and has lost over 25 lbs.  She likes to play and walks well on a leash.  Please consider making this loving girl a part of your family!


Mocha has been with our rescue since the day she was born.  We rescued her family from the shelter.  She lives in a foster home with several other dogs (both large and small).  She is a fun and loving dog.  She would love to find an active family to adopt her!  She has a great personality and loves to play in water.  She is used to being around other dogs, so she is looking for a home with another dog to keep her company.  She is a volunteer favorite because she is so loving. 

We DNAed her brother and the results were: ½ Staffordshire Terrier, ¼ German Shepherd, and ¼ Labrador Retriever. 

Tiger Lily and her puppies were taken to a shelter when the pups were only a few days old.  Tiger developed an upper respiratory infection so she was placed on the kill list.  Our rescue stepped in to save this family.  Tiger Lily is a great dog but will need a home with a high fence.

Nitro (m)  Estimated DOB:

In August, 2014 we took in a stray mama ("Honey Bear") and her two puppies, Mia and Izzy. Mia was adopted soon after they were fully vaccinated. Izzy was also adopted, but returned after 2 months. When she was 5 1/2 months old we placed both Honey Bear and Izzy on the transfer list to Longmont Humane Society. They were transferred to Longmont on September 25, 2015. About a month later we were notified that they were both adopted. We were excited for them and assumed they were in good families.
We didn't hear anything else from them until June 13, 2018. At that time we were told Izzy had been adopted out several times. They told us that due to several concerns, Izzy is no longer an adoption candidate for them. They asked if we wanted to take her back or proceed with euthanasia.  After being supplied with more details we lined out a transporter and got the ball rolling to pick her up and bring her back to us.
Izzy will be allowed to decompress and the we will begin working with her again. She came back VERY overweight, so we will be concentrating on getting her a lot of exercise too!!

Aurora DOB:   12/21/2017

Ghost (m) was rescued with 7 puppies off of an abandoned property.  The puppies were sent to an out-of-state rescue.  Ghost and his friend Jasper are still looking for an adoptive home.  They are extremely bonded and would love to stay together, but we realize that may not be possible.

Ghost is extremely shy until he gets to know and trust you.  Then he is full of personality and very playful !  He has always lived with other dogs in his foster homes.  He is potty trained and kennel trained.  Please consider adopting Ghost (and his friend, Jasper). 

Drake (m) DOB: 09/01/2013

Dallas (m) DOB: 12/21/2017

Casper's home was far away in Texas, but he somehow ended up in Las Cruces and his former owners no longer wanted him.  He may not be able to hear what you are saying, but he is young and very trainable if you are willing to work on hand signals with him.  He doesn't let his handicap slow him down at all.  He runs, plays, and gets along with everyone he meets.  Please consider giving this cute guy a home.  He will love you forever if you give him a chance and a home!
