Vegas ~ in Southern California

Looking for a Home

My name is Vegas and there's a story to how I got my name. I was in a shelter in Southern California and I was in bad shape because I tangled with a car and the car 1.....Vegas 0. The shelter said that I was walking on my front legs and everyone assumed that I was dragging my back legs...... but not me, I have talent and I learned how to walk on my front legs with my back legs in the air. I couldn't do this now because instead of being skinny like I was, I'm now a well rounded fella. You see, my pelvis was broken in three places and an orthopedic surgeon plated the worst break and the other two healed and I'm just fine and raring to go.

Anyhow, back to how I got my name. Silky Rescue decided to take a chance and they rescued me.....whee, if they hadn't you wouldn't be getting the wonderful opportunity to adopt me.

I'm three or four years old and I'm crate trained. I use a doggie door but could still use work on my house manners. I get along with all my silky friends and like to be part of the gang. I'm quite a handsome fella as you can see and I have a very nice personality so all you need to do is contact my foster mom who will tell you just how wonderful I am.

Vegas Vegas' new family will be expected to sign a contract agreeing to provide proper care for him. His adoption fee will be $200. Preference will be given to applicants within the surrounding area. Please note that we do not ship our rescues.

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 Vegas (please include your name and state so we can find your application in our files).

This is Vegas before our wonderful vet got him all fixed up!
