Muffin came to Open Arms Rescue after he was attacked by a group of male dogs in Ensenada, Mexico. As you can see from his photos and videos, all of his injuries were to his head. He was incredibly lucky to be found by a rescuer in Ensenada 3 days after he was attacked, and was taken to a local vet.
Muffin had major damage to his head and face, and came into the vet suffering from Sepsis. He received months of surgeries and medical care at the vet and was finally able to come to the USA.
Muffin is a loving, playful little boy who prefers a female owner. He also prefers the company of female dogs, so he is looking for a home where he will be the only boy. This is probably the result of his vicious attack. Please come and meet Muffin. He has been waiting a long time in his foster home to meet his family. Lets not make him wait much longer.

Gary came to Open Arms Rescue after a rescuer in Tijuana called us asking if we could help this little soul. He wound up at our vet in Mexico in critical condition. He was covered in lesions, injuries, infections and ticks, as well as having a badly broken foot. The vet didn't know if he would make it. Well a few months later and he is healthy and happy in a foster home in San Diego
The vet was able to mend all of his injuries and wound up removing hundreds of ticks from his tiny body. He had extensive surgery on his foot, including the insertion of pins. The pins have been removed and he is now ready for his forever home. He walks, jumps and runs normal.
Bianca came to us in terrible condition. She was 4 lbs and a skeleton, with hardly any fur, you could see all of her ribs and bones. She is now 8 lbs. She had been kept by someone in Mexico and totally neglected. She was near death when a good Samaritan talked the owner into giving her up and then dropped her at a local vet in TJ. An Open Arms Rescue volunteer was down at this vet at the time and saw her in a cage there. She had been there only 2 days. The vet was very happy that we were able to take her into our rescue. We had her seen by our vet and she was diagnosed with some health conditions, but once we discovered this and put her on medication she filled out into a beautiful 9 lbs and all of her white/peach hair grew back in. She is just simply a sweetheart and beautiful now. She is very mellow, doesn't bark or wine at all and just want to be a lap dog. If you would like to find out more about Bianca please contact us.
Mingo likes to play fetch and play with other small dogs. He gets along with his foster's cat and has only barked at him when startled. He likes chewy toys and bones. But No fluffy toys for him or he will tear the stuffing out. Chewing toys are best and a simple blanket will do in his crate. He is good in the crate and should continue his training in the crate. He is learning fast and adjusting well from the streets of Mexico. He is friendly and playful. He deserves a wonderful home with a yard and room to play or even a playmate!
