If you don’t enjoy cuddling, please stop reading now! I wouldn’t want to waste your time, telling you all about this gorgeous brindle and white pup named Clovis. We named him after the city where he was found in New Mexico, and this guy loves to snuggle and call the shots when it comes to showing affection. He will dutifully lay by your side until you decide you should really get out of bed and do something productive with your life. When we first met at the dog park on our drive back from Santa Fe, it was clear that Clovis had a rough puppyhood, with signs pointing to possible abuse. He had a large laceration on his hind leg, causing him to walk around as a tripod; but that didn’t stop him from displaying his friendly personality to everyone he met. Since then, his hind leg has healed – he was able to keep it, along with a barely noticeable limp – but he still needs some help healing emotionally. Shortly after coming home with us, he began showing signs of reactivity, for which he has received training, but he still has areas for improvement. He doesn’t care too much for cats, and while he gets along extremely well with his best friend / foster brother, Boomer (a 45-pound five-year-old whippet/terrier mix), he hasn’t had much luck with other dogs. Most likely, he needs time to be introduced properly with new pup friends, but a home with no other animals would be the best fit for now. Clovis enjoys going on quick jogs, playing in the yard, chewing on his toys, and stealing your attention. We have also seen him interact with our nine-month-old baby boy, and the two are already becoming good buddies. Those that have had the pleasure of meeting him now think differently about his breed. And although he still carries some sadness with him, it’s truly remarkable to witness and be on the receiving end of his amazing capacity to love. show less

Oshie is a 2-3yr old American Staffordshire Terrier. He has a had a rough start to life and has spent almost 2yrs in the "shelter/rescue system". Oshie is a very focused, loyal, and loving boy. In the house Oshie likes to have a toy or bone that he can chew on while you watch TV. If he doesn't have something to chew on he will get into mischief and steal shoes or other items on the floor to tease you into a game of keep-away. Oshie loves to snuggle on the couch and has a big happy smile when he gets loved on. Oshie is house broken and crate trained and is quiet in his kennel when you are at work or out of the house. Oshie has an obsession with balls and toys that would make him a great detection or sport candidate. Oshie has videos showing his ball/toy and hunt drive for any handlers or working homes that would like to adopt him. Oshie is not fazed by new places and has no concerns for loud noises like fireworks or thunder storms. Oshie will even dive into a pool for his toys and would likely make a fun dock diving partner. He is very intense with his toys and will snatch toys out of hands. He is still working on his out command and does not release toys easily. Oshie is working on obedience and agility skills in his foster home. Oshie is dog selective and would do best as an only dog or in a home willing to rotate him with other dogs. He would do OK with another dog if the owner is local to San Antonio and willing to work with the MMK9 trainers to help him settle in. Oshie is also not recommended for homes with children under 13yrs because of his tendency to snatch anything that might be a toy out of peoples' hands. show less
