And then there were none! Miss Olivia, our last Chihuahua mix puppy won the heart and love of her forever Valentine.

Oreo and Sandy

Momma Sandy’s heart is bursting with happiness as her last puppy of four wiggled out the door. Puppy kisses will be shared aplenty this Valentine’s week.

Oreo is a young Boston terrier-Chihuahua mix with plenty of heart for the right person. He is slow to trust, but once he does, he’ll snuggle right in there with you and your pack. Oreo is friendly with all other dogs, regardless of shape or size. He is still playful, so with a tear in his eye, he has said goodbye to each of the puppies. Oreo is searching for his Valentine too.

Carly and Sadie think its Valentine’s Day every day of the year. Often seen together in this pose, they seem to share the same heart. Identical twin sisters, they are under a year old. Sadie is a bit shy and tends to just watch the world, while Carly gets a little playtime in with the other orphans in the cattery. Someone’s heart would surely break if they could not be adopted together.


Momma Pepper has a heart as warm as gold, as well as fur to match. She is a Bengal mix with a love of water. She is about 2 years old, and is friendly with felines and canines. Her Valentines wish is to find a warm spot to lay in the sun, and give her heart to her forever love. Could that be you?

Tommy thinks every day is the day for love. Of his special human, of his food, and especially of the sun. He loves to purr, play a bit, and will turn flips for the belly rub. A sensational and one-of-a-kind big boy, someone will surely steal his heart forever.
