*Preciosa’s bio may change as we get to know her more.
*Comes with 6 weeks of pet insurance - $500 coverage.
Preciosa certainly lives up to the meaning of her name! She is one precious señorita!
Preciosa is all the way from the streets of Mexico, but you’d never guessed she lived rough since she is so sweet and affectionate with everyone she meets. She loves to be with people and is quick to give lots of kisses to everyone. She enjoys having a generous dose of pets and belly rubs! This sweet señorita just loves to be showered with affection.
Due to being blind and hard of hearing, Preciosa has some limitations in her mobility. She is reluctant of stairs at first but can learn to use them regularly with patience and some training. She will now run up and down the stairs with her foster mom.
Preciosa loves large dogs! She just wants to cuddle up to them and follow them around, however she can’t distinguish small dogs from prey. Regardless of her limitations in sight, she loves her walks and checking out the smells in the local park. For being an older gal, she still has a spring in her step!
Even though she’s blind this girl is one precious sweetheart just looking for someone to shower with her affection! If you want this precious package of love, apply at: http://covetedcanines.org/application

Want a dog with the personality of a big dog, but not interested in cleaning up big dog poops? Never fear, Maya is here! She is not your average lap dog! All she wanted for Christmas was to come to Canada from Mexico to find her forever home, and we HAD to oblige.
She's reactive on leash, so applicants should be prepared to seek some training support and learn techniques to work with her on that. However, her foster mom reports that this isn't a big worry for her! She's good with dogs when introduced properly and so she would make a great second (or third) dog! She LOVES her people, so if you're retired or work from home, Maya is INTO IT.
FYI, Maya fully intends to claim her spot next to you in bed, so if you're not into midnight puppy cuddles, she's not your girl.
Her Foster mama says her personality changes everyday as she becomes more comfortable, so if you want to see this beauty of a girl come out of her shell to be the dog she was born to be, step right up and send us an email: Adopt@covetedcanines.org OR apply directly through www.covetedcanines.org. Start your 2018 off right and opt to adopt!
