Charlie Brown

They went from being lost and abandoned dogs to loved dogs. Paws up to our Chip, the teacup Chihuahua, one of the smallest from the Anza Rescue in April, and to Elsie, the deerhead Chihuahua whose owners simply walked away. Chip and Elsie walked proudly out the ARF door sporting new harnesses, their very own tags, brand-new beds and, best of all, their doting humans. We will miss you both.


That meant that Charlie Brown, Chip’s father, and Tawny, Elsie’s sister, had to say goodbye also. They could easily be adopted together, as they have become good buddies now. Charlie is about 3 or 4 years old, and most of the time not a peep can be heard from him. His favorite pastime is in your arms, and at meal time when he twirls and dances for his food.


Tawny is 9 months old and is a little more vocal than Charlie. She loves to snuggle in her bed with a chew bone, and walk backwards on her 2 hind legs at meal time. Together or alone, they are wondering when they will get their own harness and bed too.


Paws up to Bailey the yellow Lab for such good behavior at the Opt to Adopt event, because you are now home with your forever pack and a yard to play in too.

Tammy is a young min/pin mix, docked tail, and about 3 to 4 years old. She is good with other dogs, friendly, and good on the leash. Lost and forgotten, she made her way to the ARF angels to find a new, safe home.


On the “purr” side of things, Lacy our female tux found love at first sight. And Gremlin, the gray kitten will have a lifetime of fun with his new family.


Still available are the adorable kittens Bo Peep, Pearl, and Vincent.
