Barely 6 months old, Baby Girl Faith was found curled up in a ball, outside in the cold, shivering and close to death. Every rib in her body was visible.

She spent almost a week in the hospital because she had parvo and was left to die.

Baby Girl Faith has a foster home now that made a small sacrifice and brought her into their home to help her to become healthy and adoptable.


Please consider helping us save another life. Faith will be available for adoption in a few weeks.


Paws up to our beloved min pin Malachi. This senior love bug fell in love with not one but two female teacup chihuahuas and won the hearts of the humans too. We love you Malachi.

Hi. I’m Tammy. I’m known as one of the “sun goddesses” at ARF because most days you can find me sitting in the window, or curled up in a ray of sunshine on the floor. When you come home I will only have eyes and ears for you. I can do a little two-legged dance or simply curl up in your arms.

And I always find room to snuggle behind you on your favorite chair. I am a 1-1/2-year-old min pin mix. I love to play with other small dogs, and I’m friendly with big dogs. Not so sure about the feline crowd though. I absolutely love to walk on the leash and I’m doggy door trained. Do you have a sunny spot for me?
