Here's another reason why we hate puppy mills: This adorable little cutie patootie was born in a puppy mill to an exhausted purebred Chinese Crested momma dog who finally gave out from being bred and bred and bred her whole short life, and died shortly after giving birth to her last 3 baby boys. Not wanting the hassle of bottle-feeding the babies, the puppy miller (the low-life who owns the puppy mill) dumped them at a vet clinic. And then the vet called us because they knew that we would do the right thing: bottle feed these babies around the clock, fortify them with proper nutrition and veterinary care, give them lots of TLC and find them homes where they will never be in harms way again.

We could have called him Napolean because Rum is the teeny weeny Ruler of the bunch! This itty bitty squirt will climb all over his brothers for the choice spot in someone's lap -- it's all about him!! He was the first to discover the game Keep Away by selfishly stealing his brother's toy and having them chase him for it!! He's the one who always seems to have the good ideas, whether that's stealing people's socks or jumping up on the baby gates to see what's on the other side. He also loves to snuggle his head into the crook of your neck and stay there until you dare to move him because, remember, your neck is for his enjoyment! Rum also loves playing with the kids in his foster home. In fact, if the kids are laying on the floor, Rum will start a game of King of the Mountain on the back of whoever is nearest! (And guess who usually wins?!)

As quirky and adorable as he is, he may be best in a Crested-experienced home, or at least be sure to read about the breed before applying. Rum is about 3 months old, he weighs under 4 pounds and will be pocket sized for life. If this pint-sized peanut is the personality for you, please visit for more information about the adoption process or click here for our online application. Full vetting, microchip and neuter included in his $450 adoption fee. Transport fee is additional $150. IF YOU HAVE AOL or YAHOO PLEASE CHECK YOUR SPAM FILE FOR OUR RESPONSE

About Little Pink Shelter - CT Chapter

About Our Rescue Group...

Little Pink Shelter is a registered 501(c)3 charity. All donations are tax-deductible.

When I started The Little Pink Shelter back in 2008, my mission was to help shelter dogs win their fight for a second chance at life; as a breast cancer survivor, I knew all too well the sweetness of that victory. Since founding The Little Pink Shelter, I have placed over 2,700+ dogs and puppies into loving homes.

The Little Pink Shelter is considered more of a "boutique" rescue, focusing solely on making an adoption successful. Working closely with select shelters and rescues in Arkansas where the pet overpopulation continues to be out of control, my colleagues and I are careful to temperament test each dog so we can understand the type of home to which it will be best-suited.

Too many wonderful dogs are put down each week because of lack of space, lack of funding and a widespread disregard for spaying/neutering and responsible ownership. The plight of these dogs and the quest to find each one a loving home is what fuels us every day.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do not have a facility in Connecticut, so you can only visit The Little Pink Shelter on the internet. Our dogs and puppies are usually fostered in the south and the overwhelming majority of them are adopted out before they arrive so they can go right home after transport and begin bonding with their new forever families! Check out the "Love Fests" Albums on our Facebook Fan Page!

We are always in search of short term foster homes up here in Connecticut and the surrounding states!!! If you're not ready for a full 15+ year commitment, or if you have always wanted to help in some way, please consider short-term fostering a dog or puppy for us! Write us for more info!

Our Adoption Process...

The first step in the process is submitting an online application located through a link in each pet's description, or from our website at under the "How to Adopt" tab. Whenever possible we like to begin review with a vet reference. After that, we will be in touch to set up a lengthy phone interview where each of us has the opportunity to ask all our questions of the other. Home visits are at our discretion. Once approved, there is a contract and transport is arranged if necessary.
