Beckham ~ in Southern California

Looking for a Home

Beckham Hey there! My name is Beckham. No, I don't play soccer . . . I'm named in honor of one of Silky Rescue's wonderful benefactors. I was so glad Silky Rescue saved me from that cold shelter - and found a nice foster home to care for me in Southern California. I'm a Silky Terrier/Chinese Crested mix. I'm about 3 or 4 years old and weigh about 11 pounds. As you can see, I don't have much coat on my body but I have good pigmentation to protect from the sun. Dr. Vet says I'd be a good dog for a home in the desert. The hair I have used to be much longer before the shelter people cut it off. My coat is very fine, soft and shiny!
I'm well-behaved and pretty much do what I'm asked . . . like if you show me my bed or crate and tell me to lay down, I will. I walk nicely on leash. I recently learned how to "sit" and everyone thinks that's a pretty good trick ;-). I'm eager to learn and will try to please. I will follow you around, come when called and lay quietly while you work. Every once in a while I act up and play with my toys - I especially like to make them squeak. When I'm outside or at a new place, I cautiously investigate but I'm not shy or timid. Mostly, I'm just very gentle and sweet - a happy-go-lucky, easy-going guy. I Beckham
Beckham I'm pretty good at my housetraining but you'll have to give me a schedule to be sure I "get it right". I sleep quietly and also travel well in my crate (I like my crate!). I'm really as good as any dog could be. I don't mind being bathed and groomed at all.

Beckham was recently neutered, updated on his vaccines, has had a dental cleaning and has a microchip. He gets along well with other friendly dogs but would make an ideal pet for a stay-at-home retiree as he's a pretty quiet, laid back kinda guy. His adoption fee is $300.

Beckham's new family will be expected to sign a contract agreeing to take proper care of him. Preference will be given to applicants within the surrounding area. Please note that we do not ship our rescues.

If you are interested in Beckham, please fill out an application and mention his name. The application is on-line at If you have already filled out an application, it is not necessary to re-do it...just email us at and let us know you are interested in Beckham (please include your name and state so we can find your application in our files).
