I'm ready for my new family!


I'm Available

12/4: Weight is 47.4 lbs   

Estimated birthdate: 5/20/20

I've been in rescue way too long, I just need someone to love me! I'm currently in Baja, Mexico. But I'm ready to fly to you!!

09/11/23 Foster update: Kamyla continues to thrive. Although she is not 100% great with my other dogs, I feel she could have another dog in the home with an experienced owner. She prefers males. However, Kamyla would be great in a home as the only pet. All she wants is her person to lay on the couch with and toss a ball or toy a few times a day. She does have a silly, playful side and that has only come out since being in a foster home. 

07/27/23 Foster update: I took Kamyla, aka Myla, in when she tragically injured herself by rupturing a disc which left her paralyzed in her back end. I was very leery having her because her history with other dogs was not good.  But I could not leave her in a shelter in her condition. Surgery was scheduled 6 days after her injury. Within hours after surgery she was up walking again. She spent 4 weeks resting and only allowed out on leash. This girl was so resilient, and it was amazing to be part of her recovery. Kamyla has been with us now for 2 months. The change in her has been nothing but miraculous. She is slowly becoming part of my pack of 5. She has zero aggression towards the other dogs. She is just happy to be part of the family. She really likes a couple of my dogs and even wants to play but I'm not too sure about that yet. She avoids eye contact with my female and another big male I have; but she never growls or lunges at any of them. Kamyla does spend a lot of her time behind a kiddy gate where she can see all of us and most of her time outside by herself. There are hours in the days when I leash her up and she is happy to go and do whatever I do. All the while not bothering any of the other dogs. She is learning to trust. Kamyla really deserves a home to call her own. She is very affectionate and well behaved. 

From previous foster:  We’ve only had Kamyla a very short time, but she continues to thrive. She has a soft little snore, which is adorable. She’s totally potty trained - ZERO accidents and she’s got a great little routine. She loves her cozy bed and naps a lot. She knows her name and likes to follow us around the house. She’s friendly to everyone who comes to the house. I hate the thought of her going back to her stressful kennel situation on Thursday.

Kamyla is a sweet dog. She responds well to confident, fair, and consistent leadership. She's super easy to walk on leash and we imagine she would love long walks up trails or on the beach. At this point in time, she is not eager to meet other dogs. Kamyla needs to be in a home that welcomes her as their only pet. Ideally her human companion is interested in working with Kamyla to build her confidence and trust.

Kamyla was found wandering on the highway in the middle of nowhere. It's obvious she has had many litters of pups. Now safe and sound at the rescue Kamyla is not happy being contained or alone. She is super excited when the volunteers get her out. She's not big into going for walks but does walk well on leash. She prefers to hang out inside being a couch potato. She enjoys lounging in the pool to cool off.  She really needs her person to bond with and build trust to bring out her inner puppy. 

Before leaving Cortez Rescue, all dogs will be given a full medical assessment to insure optimum health, current vaccinations.
