These dogs are in foster care but NOT yet ready for adoption.  They may be too young, need time to gain weight, recover from illness or trauma, or need sterilization.  We do not adopt animals that are ill or unsterilized.  Watch the progress of these animals with updates here and on Facebook.  They will soon be ready to move into your home and heart!


Stella is a lively and curious little puppy, about 2 months old.  She loves to play, explore, socialize, and chew with those sharp puppy teeth!  Stella was rescued from an abusive situation by the Boquete Police, who confiscated her on the spot when they saw her life was in danger.  She needs some time in foster care before she is adopted, so stay tuned to follow her story.


Millie was rescued in downtown Boquete.  We do not know her past circumstances, but she is malnourished, ill, and has difficulty eating normal dry dog food because she does not seem to recognize it.  She is under the care of a veterinarian, and will receive medications and nutritional supplements to restore her health.  We need to work with her for a while so she can learn how to live in a home setting.  She will need to be vaccinated and sterilized after she recovers her health.  Follow this page for updates on Millie’s progress.


Oh Joe, you are such a guy!  This handsome, sociable Rhodesian Ridgeback Mix is used to home life, healthy, and friendly.  He is 2 1/2 years old and medium-large in size, with a stocky build and a huge grin.  He is a great guard dog when his family is away, but completely quiet when they are home.  Joe was abused by a child when he was a puppy, is not suitable for homes with children under 12.  He is very good with other dogs and cats.  Joe will be sterilized in February and will be available to adopt at the beginning of March.


Our “Little Man” is elderly, blind, and has a chronic heart condition.  However, he’s loving, smart, loves being around people, and is very easy to care for.  He is not ready to adopt yet because he is still too thin and has a cough that is being managed by a vet.  When he gains weight and resolves his cough, he will be ready to adopt as a Special Needs dog that will fill your heart with love.
