If Petunia could only speak a few words, they'd be "Are you going to eat that?!" Petunia is a first-class chowhound with enough charm, you may actually be willing to hand over your lunch! Petunia was saved from a very high-kill city pound because a girl with this much personality just had to be given her second chance at life.

And Petunia hasn't skipped a beat. She's a happy-go-lucky girl whose motto is "Seize the day!" She's being fostered in a home with other dogs who she loves playing with: Chase Me or Chase You -- it doesn't matter to Petunia as long as it involves Fun. She attempts "Fetch" but the truth is, "Keep Away" is just as fun for her. She loves toys, and if no one is up for playing, she'll toss them around herself -- she's just grateful to be alive and doesn't want to waste a minute. And she's always at the ready: her recall is incredible, and she is always happy to get love and attention. Petunia has been a friend to all the dogs at her foster house, but the cats are a bit too much fun to chase, so we advise a home without cats. She has not been around small children but would be a great friend to teens who won't mind when she jumps up to greet them when they come home.

Petunia is about 3 years old, nicely past the puppy stage, she weighs about 40 pounds and she's a very healthy girl. We have no idea what her true mix is, but we can guarantee if the AKC ever chooses to recognize "The Chowhound" as a registered breed, she'll be the breed standard!!

Full vetting and spay included in her $350 adoption fee. Transport fee is additional $140. 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 www.pinkshelter.org 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.
