OUR DOGS

 

We believe that all dogs are a lifetime commitment and members of the family and strive to find homes that share this same core belief.  Every dog is unique in its physical needs and personality. Our goal is to match families with dogs that best suit each other’s needs.

**Please note that the QBSDR Ranch is not open to the public. All meet n' greets are scheduled by appointment after an application has been approved.**

CJ (Available for Adoption!)

 

CJ is a very sweet and cuddly senior chihuahua that's approximately 15 years old. He has CHF (congestive heart failure) which is maintained with medications. He is currently on Lasix, Benazepril, and Pimobendan. He has been in foster care for over three years, waiting for a loving, compassionate home to come along. One that will love him despite his age or CHF. It's been said time and time again by those who have met this sweet, old man, that he is unlike any chihuahua they've ever met.

This guy is incredibly mellow, low maintenance, and low energy. His favorite thing to do is cuddle in your lap or on the nearest dog bed. He is completely house broken and gets along with dogs and cats. He would make the perfect companion for anyone working from home, or an older, retired individual. If you've ever been interested in giving a senior a second chance at life, this is your boy!

CJ can be met by appointment only. Please submit an application today if interested in this sweet senior. 

 

Comet (Available for Adoption!)

 

Comet is an incredibly unique looking Pembroke Welsh Corgi, that's a freaking awesome dog. You might be thinking "I've never seen that colored corgi before!" but don't be fooled by this "rare" or "special" coat color that is not a standard PWC coat. Being a black and white merle Pembroke along with all the health issues he already has at just 4.5yrs, is a clear indicator that Comet was a very irresponsibly bred corgi. 

Comet has seborrheic dermatitis, hip dysplasia, spondylosis of the spine, and severe allergies. The seborrheic dermatitis causes excessively oily skin, and for his prior owners, became too much to handle. Comet came to us with full body yeast infections, resulting in an inflamed, crusty, patchy, very painful body that takes months to clear. The excessive chewing of his skin led to attrition of the teeth, which have worn the enamel down to the gums. Upon intake at 3.5yrs, Comet already had hip dysplasia and spondylosis of the spine, a degenerative condition that will continue to worsen as he ages. He has bone spurs growing from multiple vertebrae that have begun fusing together. This is a condition that's more common in seniors, not young dogs. At the current state of his spine, this is something that started at a very young age. 

Comet takes antiinflammatories and pain medication as needed, is on daily glucosamine/chondroitin/MSM, golden paste, tart cherry, and CBD oil. He gets monthly Cytopoint allergy injections during the spring and summer months and should be in a single level home that is medium/low energy that will be mindful of his current state and accepting of all future health issues he is susceptible to. We recommend follow up X-rays every 6months for the remainder of his life to monitor his spine and internal cavities for growths. This is a heavy mental, emotional, and financial undertaking, but he's worth every penny and effort. Comet didn't ask for any of these things to happen to him, he didn't breed himself - he's just accepted, dealt, and continued on, aware of his limitations, and showing his gratitude and appreciation through his soulful eyes and gentle kisses. 

Comet is a very sweet and affectionate corgi once you get to know him. He loves a comfy bed, enjoys squeaky toys and a warm snuggle. His favorite past time is tracking and herding flies, taking leisurely strolls, and lounging around with his senior brofurs. Comet is good with dogs, good with respectful children, and unknown with cats.

For more information about Comet, email info@qbsdr.org or submit an application for review.

 

Cowboy (Available for Adoption!)

 

Cowboy is a handsome 9.5 year old male surrendered to the rescue due to a move. He tested positive for heart worms, but has completed heart worm treatment and bedrest. Affectionately known as “Cowpoke” – this fella is a low/med energy dog that is happy to lay in the sun and relax. He has a possible neurological issue in the back legs with intermittent weakness as well as possible DM.

Cowboy has a wonderful temperament that makes him ideal for a first time owner. He is affectionate, loving, and good with other dogs and kids. He knows basic commands, walks well on leash, and is potty trained. He requires anti-flammatory medication, pain medication, and glucosamine supplements for the remainder of his life.

For more information about Cowboy, email info@qbsdr.org or submit an application for review.

 

DOOGIE (Available for Adoption!)

 

This sweetheart is 6yr old Doogie. He was surrendered to rescue when he was 2yrs old due to food aggression and lack of socialization to his environments. Over the years, he's made vast improvements with his foster.

Doogie has a tendency to get overly excited, which can quickly escalate. He's improved on his manners and leash behaviors while out, but will need a leader to help him continue being a well behaved dog. When he reacts, he will bark, lunge, and spin, but settles quickly with redirection. His food aggression has improved and will step away when asked to leave it.

He needs a leader who will continue to teach him impulse control and to wait for his release command. Doogie knows his basic obedience commands, is crate trained, and walks well on leash. He's make a great companion as an only dog or with a mellow male or female. He's a good candidate for a first time corgi owner with dog experience. We do not recommend Doogie in a home with young children.  Doogie is up to date on vaccinations, neutered, and microchipped.

For more information about Doogie, email info@qbsdr.org or submit an application for review.

 

Lucy (Available for Adoption!)

 

8.5yr old Lucy is looking for a home as an only dog. She's a medium/high energy girl that's very affectionate and very pushy. She was given up for fighting with the other dog in the household. She has a tendency to guard areas like doorways, narrow hallways, and can be pushy and bratty about shared attention/affection. Lucy's an assertive female with a charismatic personality that can get her into trouble. She's looking for a retirement home with someone who will be her leader.

She loves long walks and playing with her toys or lounging around in the yard. Being as pushy as she is, she needs an individual that will continue enforcing her manners and help guide her through life by leading her. Lucy gets along with other dogs in a social setting but would do best as an only dog in a household. She's good with kids, unknown with cats, and should not be around small animals. Lucy is crate trained, potty trained, walks well on leash, and knows some of her basic obedience. It is required that Lucy's future home complete an obedience course with her.

To learn more about Lucy, email info@qbsdr.org or submit an application for review. 

 

Panda Bear (Available for Adoption!)

 

Panda Bear is the last of the #SanDiego5 that's still looking for a furever home. A little over a year ago today, Panda and her four siblings were rescued from a horrific backyard breeder puppy mill. Everyone else was fairly healthy, except for Panda. She was skin and bones, had no access to food or water, and had deeply infected open wounds that required amputation to save her life. She fought, survived, and now thrives.

Panda is a happy girl, but a continued work-in-progress. She has very high needs and requires a home that will be patient and understanding of these needs. Panda is a double amputee and is unable to potty on her own, which requires manual expression for #1 and #2. She wears diapers to protect her bottom and prolapsed vulva from chafing on the ground and gathering debris. In excited situations, accidents will happen. Panda gets around by scooting in her drag bag or in her wheels, although she prefers to scoot. Panda needs someone who will continue her socialization and exposure to the outside world. She is good with most dogs and can be very assertive. Panda loves to play with toys, loves to fetch, lay around, and cuddle. She's an energetic, affectionate, and curious girl who also gets anxious. Her anxiety can lead to anxiety tummy, which leads to soft poop, so it's always a good idea to have pumpkin and on hand.

Panda would be good with older, respectful children, and is unknown with cats. Although she requires a lot of help to get through life, she's incredibly thankful and shows her gratitude by loving and trusting again.

To learn more about Panda, email info@qbsdr.org or submit an application for review.
