King Koopa! Koopa is a pretty cool little guy. He has a quiet, shy disposition but really likes his cuddle time and playing with other animals. His coloring is striking. It is hard to capture in pictures but he has a light brindle to him in places. He gets very excited about toys. He will need some confidence building, as he tends to be timid in new situations. He’s just a puppy so exposing him to new situations will fix that right up. I think he will do well in his forever home once he is away from him more overpowering siblings. It’s hard to be the shy ones when your siblings have their own circus act going on! He's 15 weeks old! You can come cuddle Koopa this Saturday between 11-2 at Haute Dogs in Vallejo! He can’t wait to meet you! #adoptdontshop #fosteringsaveslives #chihuahualovers #chihuahuasrock #chihuahuapuppies #chihuahuasofig #chihuahuarescue #rescuepuppies #rescuedogsofig #rescuedogsofinstagram #rescued #glar2016 #gunterslegacy

What's up, my dudes? 😎

This was me six years ago today, my first day home with my forever family. I was a little scared, because I didn’t know them yet. But I knew they looked nice and they gave me lots of kisses. I hope lots of other puppies get rescued by nice hoomans like mine. ❤️ . . . #adoptdontshop #adoptaboxerrescue #rescuedogsofig #rescuedog #adoptashelterpet #dogsarefamily #boxermom #boxersofinstagram #boxerlife #boxersrule #boxerpuppy #chancethesillyboxer #fbf

Happy Friday! Time for #fridayintroductions ! ⠀ ⠀ This is my princess Belle👑 We adopted her from a wonderful adoption agency @pawsitivelyfurever. Belle was a stray for the first few months of her life. She was found by a family with her litter mates who couldn’t care for them all so they were dropped off at a shelter. ⠀ ⠀ Belle was rescued from a kill shelter in Texas by @pawsitivelyfurever in August 2017. We brought her home on August 20th, 2017! I guess you can say she was an “unplanned” fur child 🤣 I didn’t plan to get a 2nd dog, but Ace needed a companion while my husband and I were busy at work! We met her and immediately fell in love, even though she hated us for about 4-5 hours 🤣⠀ ⠀ My husband and I always say that adopting Belle was the best thing we ever did in all the years together❤️She has such a spunky personality and she really brings out Ace’s inner puppy (not that it ever fully left🤪) She is such a bright light in our lives and there’s never a dull moment in our home because of her. ⠀ ⠀ Rescue dogs can come with issues, fears, and anxieties but the feeling of knowing you saved a life far outweighs the frustrations you face as a dog parent of a rescue dog. Belle is definitely weary of new people and it takes her a long time to warm up to most people, but we are working on that. ⠀ ⠀ Belle is my inspiration to push the message of how important it is to adopt a dog in need of a home, in lieu of going to a breeder or pet shop. Every year, 3 million dogs go into shelter and only half find a home! 😔⠀ ⠀ We can all do a small part whether it’s fostering, adopting, advocating, volunteering, or educating others. 💝

Hoping mom feels good enough to take me out again soon... Dad's great, but I like to mix it up, you know? Plus, all her sneezing and coughing is interrupting my beauty sleep. 😴 . . . . . #dogsofberlin #muttlife #rescuedogsrock #rescueslovers #rescuedogsofig #dogsofinstagram #muttsofinstagram #foundmyanimal #adoptdontshop #dogmilk #ohmydogmag #dogscanbark #dailyfluff
