Here are some brief bios of our Barrio Dogs currently living in boarding:
Parker was rescued in March 2013 when some volunteers found him in Mason Park. He was crying and appeared to be injured. After some missteps at the vet, he was diagnosed with an ear infection and neck injury. Now that he has received the proper medical treatment, he is doing well. We think he is a Corgi/Chihuahua mix and is about 3 years old and weighs 20 pounds. He's been neutered and fully vetted and is friendly and great with volunteers. We are evaluating his behavior in the event he has issues related to being abandoned or lost at the park.
Hidalgo been in boarding a short while and is skittish and timid. He was rescued from Hidalgo Park in late March 2013. We are asking our animal behaviorist to evaluate him and will get a professional trainer to work with him. At this point, we ask volunteers to not attempt to walk or interact with him.
Raven and Zoe are two big black dogs who are similar looking although Raven has no tail. Zoe belongs to the owners of the boarding facility and has lived there for a long time. Raven belonged to an independent rescuer who gave him to Barrio Dogs to find him a home. We agreed to let an out-of-state resident adopt Raven last year and transported him to his new home. Unfortunately, he was returned by the adopter because of behavioral issues. Raven is back in boarding and seems to be content living there. He and Zoe are good friends and keep each other company. Although Zoe can be walked, we ask that volunteers not take Raven out of his run or try to walk him. He is let out at least twice a day by the facility’s owners and by our volunteer Ernie Zenteno.
