Every Wednesday we feature a different pet that needs a new forever home here in the Basin from Lonestar Sanctuary For Animals. Sometimes it's a dog, sometimes it's a cat. They haven't had any guinea pigs, hamsters, birds, or snakes---yet. But you never know!

Meet Mesquite!


She is a sweet 5-month-old pit mix puppy with energy to spare!  Mesquite loves people and playing with her canine friends!  She is going to be a big girl once she is finished growing so her adopter would need to have a fence with a nice sized yard.  Mesquite was found out in the Mesquite by the Sanctuary and was very underweight and hungry!  She is a beautiful dog with a very sweet personality!  All she wants is attention and love!  Mesquite does better with dogs her size or larger.   She is very jumpy so we don't recommend her for children under the age of seven.  We have not tested her with cats.  Like all puppies, Mesquite would benefit greatly from some basic obedience training.  If you are looking for a sweet energetic puppy who will grow to be your loyal companion, come meet Mesquite!

Once home, remember the rule of three: three days to decompress, three weeks to get used to your routine and home, and three months to feel completely at home.
