Mabel is a little dog with a big personality!
She is a senior Chihuahua/Rat Terrier mix. Don't let the age scare you off, Mabel goes by the philosophy that you are only as old as you think you are. In Mabel's case that would be about 5 years old!
Mabel would love a home of her own where she could be treated like the princess she thinks she is. Mabel is a little dog at 17 lbs. but she is not a "carry me around and strut my stuff out in public" little dog. Her ideal day would be quietly sunbathing at home following around the sun spots as they move throughout the day or napping in your lap. Mabel is very good on leash and is food motivated. She loves her vegetables. She is slow to warm up to people but once she does you will be smothered with kisses and exuberant welcomes when you get home. Mabel will make sure you are aware of any one in the yard or if a dog is barking on the TV.
Mabel has been able to integrate quite a few new foster dogs into her temporary family and she teaches them how to behave around a senior lady!
So if you are looking for a small dog with a big personality and can provide a quiet loving home, Mabel would love to meet you.

Please note, we do not have a physical facility where our dogs are housed, they are cared for in our network of wonderful foster homes throughout New England. If you find a dog you would like to meet, our expectation is that, once approved, you will travel to meet the dog in the foster setting where they are feeling safe and loved.
Thank you for considering rescue!
