**Health Disclaimer: We do not guarantee the health of any animals offered for adoption. Any time you adopt an animal, you should take it to a licensed veterinarian as soon as possible. Your animal is, to the best of our knowledge, healthy. Please be aware that the animals available for adoption are rescue animals and, as such, sometime have unknown histories including exposure to certain illnesses. Like human illnesses, these diseases can have an incubation period of up to several weeks. All of our dogs have been seen by a vet and checked for common diseases and illnesses, however that does not guarantee that an illness/disease may present in the future. If the animal you adopt shows signs of illness at any point, you must take it promptly to your veterinarian for treatment at your expense.
This includes dental as well.
The Mexican dogs often present with teeth that are not consistent with their age, meaning they have more tartar, etc than they should for their age. This is because of 2 things…First, most were street dogs and ate whatever they could find so a lack of proper nutrition along with sometimes eating very hard things that shouldn’t be eaten,. Also, the water in Mexico is also not conducive to good oral heath.
That being said, we, of course, do check their teeth and take care of any issues needing urgent treatment.
