My name is Autumn and I am 8 years old. Since I am a small breed dog, I can live a long time. I am a very sweet girl who loves to play with you and kiss your hand.
Since I have been fostered, I have learned to walk on a leash. I am not much for running in the yard. I just wish to quickly do my business and come inside to be near you. When you have the time, I love to sit next to you on the couch and be petted. I will give you kisses ‘cause I really appreciate being loved since I was a former mill dog.
At mealtime, I will sit nice when told. I eat soft food and clean my dish.
Though I wear diaper, I am dry overnight and most of the day. My foster mom feels if I was put in a small room with pee pads for potty breaks that I eventually would not have to go out in the weather. I do enjoy being outside for a bit on the patio. Foster mom takes care to keep me out of the sun to prevent cataracts and off the grass after breaks to prevent fleas.
My favorite thing is being near my human and sitting on the couch with her. I favor women, but can get used to a man with patience. Though I came here with Oaklee, it is not necessary for me to have a dog friend. But I get along with the dogs here and also a cat.
The lucky person who adopts me will find that once I warm up to you, that I will bring you great joy and love.
Please consider me as your forever friend, much love,

Autumn continues to thrive in her foster home. She loves being outdoors in the summer months. Autumn is looking for a family with a fenced in backyard so she can explore yet be safe.
Autumn's adoption donation is $250.00.
Autumn and Oaklee have been in foster care for just over 6 months. They both have become pretty independent of each other, trusting their foster mom and are no longer frightened. We have determined that they can be separated and no longer will be adopted out as a bonded pair.
Update Monday December 7, 2015
Autumn and OakLee have been fostered in the same home now for about 4 weeks. It has come to the attention of foster mom that these two should not be separated. They rely on each other for company, cuddles and love. At this time, we will not be adopting out Autumn or OakLee separately.
Hellooooooooo! My name is Autumn, just like the day today, crispy and bright. I was named after my foster mum's family home. It's so beautiful there this time of the year. 5 pretty oak trees in the yard with stunning colors. My mate, OakLee is also named after their family home!
I came out of a puppy mill. I have given birth to many babies, and well, it was time to be retired. I now live in a super duper home with other pups. I get along well with small pups, I've been around pups all my life. Anyway, for the first time in my life I have had a lovely bath and a warm snuggly bed to sleep in. I am in love being free. I love people and will keep nudging you till you pet me. Foster mom says I'm pretty much socialized, but I need some potty training. I am wearing a pair of panties now, we don't know if I will ever be able to go with out them. You know what people say? Accidents happen! To no fault of my own, I will try to only go potty outside. There are no guarantees in life, but I am a great girl and this should not stop you for putting in an adoption application.
Due to my size and fragility, I will need to be in a home with adults only. I will need a fenced in yard so so I can enjoy my freedom. Foster mom has watched me play outside and snoop for holes under the fence. Not to worry, I couldn't go too far, she always has her eye on me and she's pretty quick to pick me up.
I don't have many teeth, I had my dental today and most of my teeth were rotted and had to be pulled. I will require a soft diet of grain free food so I can continue on the road to good health.
I will be available for adoption on November 19th. I need time to heal and my foster mom needs to learn as much about me as possible to make sure I find the right 'match'.
