Diamonds in the Ruff are pranaDOGS dogs who stay at the Rehab Center and get adopted through the organization. These animals may have been picked up on the Navajo Nation, on surrounding indigenous lands, on oil & gas fields or been transferred through a rescue group or shelter.

Although we’d love to save them all we are committed to doing it right so limiting what comes to us is necessary to be sure we spend our time on dogs that can benefit from rehabilitation and be placed afterwards. In some cases the individual who found or rescued the dog takes him or her back, in other cases they’re adopted through pranaDOGS or La Plata County Humane Society in Durango, CO.

Some of the dogs we are working with are:


Sedona has been staying at pranaDOGS since she was trapped in the oil fields near Aztec, NM. At the time her face was covered in porcupine quills. She’s come a long way since she arrived but she still doesn’t trust people and prefers the company of dogs. The couple that trapped Sedona and brought her here are planning on taking her once able.



I’m available for adoption, kinda…
Alex is a beautiful, little, female Heeler mix. She was transferred from the Navajo Nation and was too nervous to find a home through local shelters. We’ve been working on her confidence building and she’s doing great. Alex is available for adoption to the right home…something soft with low-chaos, strong routines and a well-mannered dog or two that she can bond with. She’s a real love….loves to snuggle but still gets nervous if she’s one-on-one with a person outside. Alex needs someone who wants a project dog (and a best buddy) who gives great kisses!


Teddi is a sweetheart from Gallup, NM who came to us through RezDawg’s. She’s a young girl who is terrified of everything but dogs. It’ll be a while before we can get a read on whether or not she’ll come around but fingers crossed!
