Sassy & Miracle's Info...
|Size:||Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less||Sex:||Female||ID#:||22157 22162|
These adorable little ladies are Sassy and Miracle, a mother/daughter duo that came to us from our Newark facility in search of a great home. These two were given up when their owner could no longer care for them. Sassy is a chihuahua that is about two years old, and her little pup Miracle, is a chihuahua/dachshund mix that is only about 5 months. This pair is so bonded with each other that we can't bear to separate them, so they will be looking for a home together. These two are the definition of sweetness! They are currently hanging out in our office with our other little office mascot, Mimi, and just loving all of the attention they're getting. They are so much fun and just love everyone. You can't walk past their little room without stopping to say hello and cuddle with them when they stand on their hind legs to beg you to pick them up. They are extremely affectionate and well behaved too. Both get along great with other dogs and cats too, and would make a wonderful addition to any family that will promise to love and care for them forever. Please consider opening your heart and home to our precious little pair, and make their dreams come true! 12/18/12 File#22157 and 22162.
