And then there was one. Paws up to Noah, the male puppy for wiggling, wagging, and wishing your way right into a forever home. That leaves Olivia, four months old and ready to snuggle right into your arms. These puppies are in Mt. Pawley Tech U. here in Idyllwild, and are A+ students.

Baby Girl Faith

Baby Girl Faith shivered in the early morning shadows, her short fur damp from the morning dew, and her body giving in to parvo. She had a long journey back to health, physically and learning to trust again. And her biggest wish has come true. She has her forever home, and will never find herself alone in the cold again. Paws up to you baby girl.
Oreo and Sandy

Sandy is a tan-and-white Chihuahua. Weighs in at about 8 pounds, short in stature, attends Mt. Pawley Tech U., and demonstrates several two-legged “special moves.” Flanked to the left and always by her side is her right-paw dog, Oreo, a young male with Boston terrier-Chihuahua background, who also attends Mt. Pawley Tech U.

Mascot paws include Winston, and Girl. Winston is a young American Staffordshire with a warm chocolate-brown coat. He is good with all other animals and people, and is great on the leash. Girl is a senior Aussie who loves the great outdoors.

Sporting the “blue and black” are Carly and Sadie, Midnite and Meow Meow.

In the “red and gold” cheering their team are Heidi and Momma Pepper.
