found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, not good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Update: June 1, 2009: Belle started her heartworm treatment today. She did very well with her first treatment. She is now at home resting. She will get the second half of her treatment on July 1, 2009.
Update: May 25, 2009: Belle and Star are doing alot better. They are now letting us come closer to them and even pick them up. They are still scared but are making great progress. They have both had a dental which they both desperately needed. Star had developed a hernia and had a small tumor removed from her chest. Next we will begin on Belle's heartworm treatment. Please say a prayer for these girls, that they at least can learn to trust humans again and that they find out the true joy of being a pampered pooch.
Belle and Star are senior Chihuahua's that came into rescue together. They are very bonded to each other and look to each other for comfort. They both have tattooÂs in their ears which means that they probably came from a backyard breeder or puppy mill. Most puppy millÂs use tattooÂs as a way of keeping up with the numerous dogs in their possession instead of giving them a name. The dogs are looked at as money making machines and not as a family member. These dogs are breed until they no longer can produce puppies and then they are culled at auctions or dumped at shelters.
These girls have had little human contact and are both very shy at this point but we are working with them every day. They are beginning to wag their tails when they see us but at this point they do not want to be held. Both of these girls have been spayed recently but we are trying desperately to raise the funds for their dental work and BelleÂs heartworm treatment. Please help us give these girls a better life by donating to their care.

Your first step in adopting a new family member is to fill out the free online adoption application. The adoption form must be filled out completely with phone numbers and a vet reference before it will be processed. Your application will not be processed without this information.
We sometimes receive many applications on one dog. Our goal is to place the dog in the best home possible based on his/her needs, personality and past history. Please note that adoptions are NOT done on a first come, first serve basis, and filling out an application does not guarantee the adoption of any dog. We reserve the right to refuse any applicant for inaccurate or false information. We are looking for the best possible home for this animal. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
