Rescue Dog Inca’s Past May Be a Mystery But His Future Can Be Yours

The Incan people are known for their historical contributions to religion, architecture, and complex road systems. Well, this Inca is a dog, so he has no use for any of those things. Well, that’s not entirely true. He does have use for the road systems since he’s looking for a ride out of PACC! Inca is one of Pima Animal Care Center’s longest-stay pups in Tucson, and he is ready to hit the road with you today!

While his name conjures up images of ancient civilization and advanced culture, this handsome guy has plenty to contribute when it comes to being your new best friend right here and now. Companionship, loyalty, entertainment, and love are just a few of the many qualities he has to offer.

Stray Dogs

Inca was originally found as a stray, so his past is a bit of a mystery. But where you’ve been isn’t nearly as important as where you’re going. During a brief adoption, Inca was housebroken and was described as being very sweet, quiet, and well-behaved. His adopter said that Inca is always relaxed and loves taking naps and being around his people.

Since his time at PACC, Inca has been working on all of his good-boy skills with his volunteer friends. Here’s what one of them had to say about him:

“I walk Inca frequently, and he’s doing well. He’s eager and waiting for me when it’s time for his walk. He is doing better with loose leash walking, though he’ll need to keep working on this in his future home. We practice “wait at the gate” before going through the gate to the parking lot. Inca quickly relieves himself on our walks and then starts looking around to enjoy the sights, sounds, and smells we encounter. We walk away from other dogs, and the walks are 80 percent loose-leash walking now with me.

“We went to the sandy play yard yesterday before our walk, and he played with the giant red ball. He was covered with sand when we left the yard, and he was comfortable with me brushing all the sand off his body, including his head and his legs. He takes treats gently from my hand and will give me a quick “sit” on command. Inca also makes good, soft eye contact.”

Animal Rescue

This neutered fella with a deep brownish-black coat and dainty white pitty paws weighs approximately 53 pounds and is thought to be about 2 years and 10 months old. Inca is definitely a friendly, people-oriented kind of guy. While he loves all his human pals, he can be a bit more choosy with his canine companions and will likely do best as your one-and-only. He’s been at the shelter since February 22, 2022, so he’s way overdue for adoption.

If you are interested in adopting handsome Inca or you know of someone who might be, please email with additional questions. He’s in Kennel D037, and his ID# is A757014.
