About CHIQUITIN

Chiquitin! His name means `tiny tot` in Spanish. We`re guessing he was the cutest little puppy ever but he is definitely more of a Big Tot these days! When Chiquitin arrived at the shelter, he was pretty shut down. This is normal, and heartbreaking, for many owner-surrendered pups. They have no idea what they did wrong, why they are in this loud place, where their family is, and are they ever coming back for them.This is where the power of AAC`s shy dog volunteers come in! They worked with Chiquitin daily, and little by little, he started to come out of his big fluffy shell. Now Chiquitin does the cutest dance when he sees his friends! He is the master of zoomies, and he loves to play with other pups. His roommates keep getting adopted and we`re hoping that Chiquitin`s turn is next! Large black dogs are the most overlooked dog in the shelter system. We think it`s crazy, too!You can follow Chiquitin on instagram: its_chiquitinTo contact his foster, email kristin.skilling@gmail.com

ANGUS

American Pit Bull Terrier

All we can think when we look at Angus is, `GAH!! How can a dog be this cute?!` That wrinkled face, the smooshy lips, the sneaky side-ey... show more

All we can think when we look at Angus is, `GAH!! How can a dog be this cute?!` That wrinkled face, the smooshy lips, the sneaky side-eye... it`s all too adorable!Angus is one of those dogs who thrives once he has some consistency and guidance. When he first arrived at the shelter, he was so afraid that he would hide under his bed. But after lots of positive interactions, Angus learned that the staff and volunteers were there to help him and take care of him. He definitely has his enthusiastic moments but he calms with appropriate redirection, and focus games are his jam! Angus loves toys and one of his favorite things to do is select a toy from the toy bin and then throw it around in the air. Yippee!Angus is always super excited to make friends. Hey new person, are you my fren? Yes! What about you, mister, you my fren, too? Ok! And that person over there not looking at me, can they also be my fren? Yay! Angus is also very dog social and enjoyed going to play group at the shelter. We think he would love to live with a doggy friend, or go on regular play dates!We know from his time in foster that Angus is house trained and crate trained. He walks nicely on a leash and wants to sniff allllll the things! Angus is still a youngin so he sometimes decides to chew on stuff he is not supposed to, but he trades nicely for a treat or an appropriate toy. Angus would do well in most home environments but we would not recommend young kiddos since he can sometimes get jumpy/mouthy when he is excited.I weigh approximately 57 lbs.
