Meet Penny and Whinnie
Penny and Whinnie are two sweet little sisters. Penny, who has the white on her face, is the larger of the two at a whopping 4.1 pounds. Whinnie, is the fiesty little sister, at 3.5 pounds. These two tiny love bugs are 11 monthsand were given up by their owner because he had too many dogs. They were clearly loved and are spoiled, spoiled, spoiled. Their favorite foods are Rotisserie chicken, sausage, rice, green beans, and hot dogs. They also love cheese. They will not eat dog food. Good thing they are little buggers and do not eat much!
Penny and Whinnie are bonded and must go together. Due to their size, they will not be placed in a home with children under 10 years of age. They also need a home without large dogs who might step on them by accident. Penny and Whinnie are typical chihuahuas who are very nervous when they first meet people. They run and hide and are prone to nip. However, once they have bonded with you, they are ALL LOVE. They want nothing more than to be with you at all times and love to jump in your lap. They love to play and find mischief when they can (as much mischief as a 3 and 4 lb dog can make!)
They are still working on house training and like to bark a lot so an apartment might not be the best environment for them because they might upset the neighbors. They will also need a fenced in yard because they are not leash trained. Please also be prepared for their foster mother to bawl her eyes out when they leave! These two are the cutest and sweetest little dogs with TONS of personality!
Donation: $300.00 for the pair

Rescue Group Info...
PAWS is comprised of a small group of volunteers from New England and Tennessee trying to reduce the euthanization rate (previously 90%) at the Tipton County Animal Control shelter in Brighton, Tennessee. This shelter is forced to euthanize thousands of animals each year due to irresponsible pet owners that do not spay/ neuter their dogs in the area. Millions of dogs in America are euthanized each year due to lack of space and lack of funding to try and find them better homes.
Our mission is to save as many animals as possible, removing them from the shelter, having their veterinary needs met prior to traveling and then finding them loving homes throughout New England. We do this only with the assistance of many people volunteering their time by going to the shelter, transporting the dogs to the vet, fostering dogs who need special care, and arranging for their new and happy homes in this area. Most importantly, we cannot do any of this without those people willing to open their homes and hearts to these lovely creatures.
All of our dogs are located either in foster homes in New England or Tennessee/Missouri. Please email our volunteers to ask about the specific pet that you are interested in.
Donation: $450.00 (includes $140.00 transport fee paid directly to USDA approved transport company)
