Umbrella of Hope "Be Our Pet"
1 yr old, 6 lb Chihuahua Mix NEUTERED MALE for ADOPTION
Meet Drakkar Noir
Drakkar comes to us from Delano Animal Control Shelter and is one of the 5 dogs we committed to if we could raise $600 last month.
The cologne Drakkar Noir by Guy Laroche is described as "a classic scent featuring notes of lemon zest, lavender, peppercorn, patchouli, and oak moss"... while we cannot guarantee that our Drakkar smells exactly like that, we can say that he smells a LOT better after his bath!
Drakkar is a 1 yr old, 6 lb Chihuahua Mix NEUTERED MALE. He is microchipped, free of parasites and has been vaccinated (DHLPP, rabies, Bordatella and Lyme). He is also heartworm negative.
Drakkar is very shy. He can be seen of the shelter in the video we posted live on our timeline last Friday. He did not stand a chance of getting out of there if we did not take him. He was PETRIFIED. He has learned very quickly that people are not scary. We bring yummy things to eat and our hands are for petting, scrubbing in the bath and for TUMMY RUBS. He went from a shaking, cowering little guy to a sweet little dog who wags his tail when he sees us approaching. He is also a supermodel as evidenced by the photos below.
Drakkar is learning how to be a dog. He is excellent in the crate and in the car. He has quickly started to pick up what a leash is and how it works. He is doing amazingly well with housebreaking and will go on potty pads and outside if taken but he is still learning how to ask. He would be an excellent candidate for basic obedience classes because learning, and being rewarded for doing, commands helps build a dog's confidence. We do offer a $50 rebate upon proof of completion of a dog class. Shy dogs are the ones who turn into "velcro dogs" once they have a family.
Drakkar needs a patient family. As far as kids go, we have seen zero behaviors that would preclude him from being placed with children but any children should be respectful of shy dogs. We would want any children who are regular members of a household to meet Drakkar prior to adoption. He is great with other dogs and so far has ignored cats.
To inquire about adopting Drakkar, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
To sponsor all or part of Drakkar's medical care and stay in foster while he awaits his forever family ($200), please make a tax-deductible donation at www.paypal.me/UOH or email us for a physical address to send a check.

Umbrella of Hope does not have any strict rules on ages of children because all children are different, but our best approximation is that this animal would do best with children over the age of 10
Umbrella of Hope is a non-profit animal rescue based out of Pittsburg, CA that rescues animals off death row from local shelters. We offer rebates of adoption fees after completion of obedience classes and CGC titles.
Also, ask us about our seniors for seniors program, where we adopt animals 5 years or older to qualified homes with a $5 donation as an adoption fee. All animals are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, treated for parasites and given any additional treatments (dental work, bloodwork etc) as recommended by our vet. Some of our senior animals have sponsorships for their food/vet care/medicine for the rest of their life at our vet in Pittsburg, CA (94565)
