Chuqio lived most of his life in a kenneled area of an auto body shop. He was soon to be taken to a shelter where he would have been killed for "barrier aggression" although he's a friendly boy. He now has a 2nd chance at a good life he always deserved! More ...

Chuquio who is a 7yr old lab/pit mix boy lived most of his life outdoors in a large kenneled area of an auto body shop in Santa Ana, CA. He was starved by the owner there until Martin became an employee and began caring for him. Kids often threw trash over the walls of the kenneled area when the shop closed to try and aggravate him for fun. He hasn't been taken on walks, bathed or brushed in years, hasn't been socialized with many people or dogs, but REGARDLESS OF HIS LIFE AND ALL HE'S BEEN THROUGH, CHUQIO IS STILL SUCH A GOOD SWEET BOY, VERY TRAINABLE & HAS GREAT POTENTIAL!


Sadly, Martin lost his home and job recently which forced him to rehome 4 of his chi mixes and Chuqio by 5/28th, otherwise they would have ended up at a high-kill shelter. Because Chuqio was dealt this life at the auto body shop, he is very reactive behind a fence (barrier aggression) towards unfamiliar people but is NOT reactive once people walk in. HOWEVER, THIS BEHAVIOR WOULD HAVE GOTTEN HIM KILLED IMMEDIATELY IF TAKEN TO A SHELTER EVEN THOUGH HE'S NOT AN AGGRESSIVE DOG. They would have deemed him "Aggressive" and euthanized him right away.


CHUQIO NOW HAS A SECOND CHANCE!  There is a wonderful trainer, Ellen Paiva w/ Broken Arrow Dog Training in Lancaster, CA who offered to help him with a board & train home environment where he will receive daily training and walks, socialization, lots of love and attention, high quality food and supplements for a senior, a clean and soft bed, toys and treats, and the list goes on and on!  Ellen will also find him a forever home when he's ready.


This fundraiser is needed to pay for his current and future medical needs, training, transport fees, high quality foods and supplements, etc.  Because Ellen won't have room to take in Chuqio until mid-June, he will be kenneled from 5/28th thru mid-June.  Lynda & her family w/ Balcom Canyon Pet Lodge in Somis was touched by Chuqio's story and offered to waive all kennel fees to help...THANK YOU!!!  Donations in any amount may be sent to me directly via PayPal as a Gift to and mention it's for Chuqio ***OR*** a check made payable to "Broken Arrow Dog Training" may be mailed to Ellen (trainer) directly at 8707 W. Avenue F, Lancaster, CA 93536.  Please mention it's for Chuqio also.  Your help will be greatly appreciated, thank you so much!
