Animal Shelter Report 
New tiny dogs with big hearts


The past few weeks we have had quite a few people coming into the shelter looking for smaller dogs and we haven’t been able to help them. Well, I’m happy to say that we just got some new tiny dogs in that are both darling and have wonderful personalities. Most of these little guys are Chihuahua mixes and are just as cute as can be!

“Minnie” is a Chihuahua mix who sports a pretty black and tan coat. Her foster mom says she is an exceptionally sweet little lady who just wants a lap to snuggle in. She also mentions that Minnie has had puppies and was a fantastic mother who has a very nurturing spirit and would be fine around children. Minnie is very quiet and rarely barks. She loves to go for walks and does well on a leash.

“Bubbles” is an energetic young Chihuahua who hasn’t lost her puppy energy. She enjoys being around other dogs and would really like a home with another dog who will play with her. She has a cute tan and black coat and weighs a whopping 5 pounds.

“Sarito” is a guy who is a little bit bigger but not much. He is also a Chihuahua mix and weighs in at 11 pounds. He is a spunky boy who is full of energy. He would do well in an active household where he would be included in the activities.

“Little Dutchess” is also a little Chihuahua mix who would do best in a home with another dog as long as it is close to her size (small). She is housebroken and loves to snuggle and will sleep with you. She likes to jump so a 5- or 6-foot fence is required.

“Wylie” is not remotely a Chihuahua. He is a very handsome Walker coon hound who loves to run and go for walks. He would do best in an active home and loves to play with other dogs. He is good in a crate and in the car. He would love a home with an experienced “hound person” who could work with him on further training.

It is always exciting when we get new dogs and we are hoping they will get new homes soon! Come on in and see the new cuties!

We have some darling kittens needing forever homes. Lots of different colors but all cute! We have more waiting in foster care and when they are old enough they will be coming into the shelter also. They are all darling and playful and want your love.

We would be grateful to receive donations of canned cat food and Kitten Chow. Thanks you for caring!
