Isla is between 5 and 6 years old and is at our best guess Lurcher x hound. Isla is very sweet natured but can be shy when meeting new people or in new situations. She has been gaining confidence and a set of skills in foster care but her new family will need to be on board with attending positive reinforcement training classes. At this time Isla is looking for an experienced, quiet home with a family who will continue to help her progress. She's very smart and eager to please, knows some basic commands. Isla is good with other dogs and would benefit from having a canine sibling. Looking for a home with all members of the home over the age of 15.

Alice has gone from a scrawny, drastically underweight American Bulldog dumped in a construction site, producing milk but with no evident puppies to a stunning, solid, athletic girl who is just a big marshmallow.
This sweet girl is approximately 3 and has been through quite a lot, she was hit by a car when dumped which smashed her hip and this went untreated for a period of time until she came into our care. She has recovered beautifully and is now ready for a family to call her own. True to the breed she has a list of allergies however we have managed to keep things under control with a regulated diet. Her play style is a little rough so we are looking for a home with kids over the age of 15, ideally with some breed experience. Continued training is mandatory to build on her confidence and socialization.
Click here to see a video of Apollo beautiful 5yr/o boy is looking for a home with a fun loving family! Sadly his owner recently passed away, leaving him looking for a family to call his own. Apollo was originally rescued from the Islands and he is referred to as a "pot cake puppy" meaning a dog that the locals would feed the remnants of their rice at the bottom of their pots. Having come from a single person household he is nervous of commotion or loud noises. He needs a family who will help him overcome some of his anxiety and work with him as far as activity and new people. He loves playing with other dogs, is fine with cats and is truly a marshmallow once he gets to know you. At this time we are looking for an adult home or a family with children 15 plus - training classes a must!

He is looking for a home with no cats and all members of the family over the age of 12.
Sometimes we take in some dogs who require more care than others - often for the rest of their lives. Whilst these dogs tend to stay within the TDRI family they incur a lot of expense - if you would like to donate to the ongoing treatment of these animals and play a role in making whatever time they have left more comfortable please consider donating - we need all the help we can get.

Meet Tinta!!! This pretty little black lab x joined our program last year after spending 2 years in a Mexican shelter. Our team fell in love with her when a couple of them went down for their annual personal vacation. In true rescuer form, they spent their vacation helping out with a Mexican animal rescue and that's when they saw her. Slinking low against the walls, timid and scared, was this lovely 4 year old girl. Her shyness, along with the fact that she is a black dog (which is regarded as a bad superstition in Mexico) made her chances of adoption slim. Before ending up at the shelter, Tinta gave birth to 6 puppies on a high traffic," slum" area street corner. One puppy was killed by a car, another died from heat, and the remaining four were happily snapped up by tourists for adoption. Sadly, Tinta has been moved to the status of palliative care as she has some medical issues that we are trying to muddle through.
