AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION: Mimi is 5-6 year old shih tzu mix that weighs 15 lbs (but needs to drop a couple of those). Her previous owners did not take very good care of her. It's no wonder she takes time to warm up to new people. However, when she finally decides you can be trusted, she is a total love bug.
She is low to moderate energy. Although she spends most of her time cuddling with her foster mom and getting belly rubs, she does like to play in very short spurts of energy. She gets along with other dogs and cats, rides well in the car, walks great on a leash, and is doing extremely well with her house training.
Mimi would do best in a home without small children. If interested in adopting Mimi, please contact Jen Miller at fermiller50@hotmail.com.

What a cutie...ready to go!,,

FOSTER/FOREVER HOME NEEDED! We are currently looking for a foster/forever home for Alvin. Alvin is a sweet 3 year old Yorkie mix, weighing approximately 18 lbs. A little timid at first, he very quickly warms up for love and treats. He loves to sit on your lap and get attention. He is currently working on his house breaking, but walks well on a leash. He has been neutered, groomed, and is up-to-date with his shots.
If you live in the Charlottesville area and are interested in fostering/adopting this sweet boy, please fill out an application at: http://animalconnections.org/?page_id=150

He does well in his crate and is happy to see everyone he meets. He does well with people, children, and dogs.

Poor Mimi!!!! She came to us last Friday in bad shape. Since coming to AC she has been poked, prodded, and shaved. She was on her way home from the vet today looking so pitiful. We will get this sweet girl all better so she can find her forever home.
