Look what the wind blew in! Weighing about five pounds, you’ll never even know she’s on your lap. Introducing Miss Feather who was found wandering on Highway 243. Quite the agile girl, she is young, energetic, loving and full of tricks. We believe she is a powder puff Chinese crested mix. We know she is just a sweetheart.

Boo is looking for you! This 1-1⁄2-year-old Chiweenie is pure love on the end of your leash. Another good lap dog, Boo will need a secure yard to play in. Friendly with dogs, cats and kids. He will be a great lifetime friend.

Nellie is our senior resident. Abandoned in the ARF yard, she is a 7-year-old papillon mix. Good with dogs, cats and people, she prefers to look pretty on her special pillow. She’ll sing for her supper, and give a bark when its time to go outside. Great on the leash, too.

Reily’s bags are packed, bones included, and she is ready to go. A true hikers dream, Reily has great energy on the trail, and on a leash. Hide and seek is her favorite game whether it’s a rock or her favorite toy. Reily’s focus comes naturally, and everything else she learns is just gravy — in the bowl, that is.

Spit and Fire, the Girl Scout kitties are still available as is Blackjack, the male tux, and Polly, the polydactyl.
