Sandrita

Sandrita (female, born approx January 2012)

Sandrita was rescued near the Paradisus resort in Playa Del Carmen.  She has been diagnosed with TVT.  Transmissible Venereal Tumor (or TVT), is a naturally occurring tumor that is sexually transmitted from one dog to another. It is usually very treatable.  

It was thought that Sandrita may have an owner as she was free of fleas and ticks, and also interacts very well with people.  Although we tired, no owner was found.

Sandrita is currently undergoing treatment for TVT and will be available for adoption soon!

Adopted!

 

Zazil (approx DOB – Jan. 2015) – Arrival at shelter May 26, 2015.

Zazil is named after  a Mayan Princess. When she came to us, she was not looking so royal. She had severe skin issues and almost no hair. Her poor skin was so irritated and painful and itchy! She is doing much better now, and looks like a little tiny long haired Rottweiler. She is a high energy puppy, but she is still in quarantine, once she gets out with the other puppies, she will have a chance to run all that energy off and we will see her true personality. She is very loving and affectionate and loves attention when she can stand still long enough to get it! If you are looking for a dog who can keep up with you, Zazil is your girl. Continue reading
