Pet’s Story or Bio
Family Biver Figueroa

We adopted Matilde back in August 2012 in Vega Baja. We had a beach house back then and a neighbor had Dogo Argentino. He was a backyard breeder. He had seen us with our dogs and how happy they were and he wanted us to buy one of the puppies from her female dog. We remembered seeing her dog pregnant so many times but we always told him that we refused to buy a dog. Then, his dog gave birth again to ten puppies. Again, he offered the best of the dog litter to us. We refused. He sold most of them except the runt. One day we drove by his house and he stopped us. He said nobody wants to buy this girl so it's yours. He handed her to us and we took her. As soon as we got home we realized she had thousands of fleas and ticks. We immediately took care of her and the rest is her story with us. Now it's out princess Matilde.

We adopted Pablo in February 2015. His original family is from Rincón. They had another dog that did not get along with him. He was a puppy and all he wanted was to play with her but she did not like him at all. They had to put him in the backyard to avoid fights and the poor puppy was not enjoying his life as he deserved. We had put to sleep Jack in November 2014 so when we were told that Tyson had a chance of ending in Saint Michelle we did not hesitate to take him into our family. Tyson is knan Pablo. I have never had such a happy and sociable pitbull. He has only brought happiness into our lives.

We adopted Tonka (kna as Julia) as recent as March 2017. She was rescued from a backyard breeder in Rincón from a very special lady, Neva. She has helped me with some many rescues in PR, including vet expenses, traveling expenses to the US and adoptions. She has rescued 100s of dogs and has set sterilization clinics for dogs all over the island. There are so many dogs living the live they deserve thanks to Neva. When she asked me to take Tonka, I could not refused but with the understanding that it was going to be on a foster basis to see how Matilde and Pablo got along with her. The first weeks was not easy since they did not get along with her. But now, we are enjoying our 3 dogs family.

We are the happiest family with our three rescued dogs.
