Name: Tiffi
Breed: Poodle
Gender: Female
Age: 7 years
Weight: 12 lbs
You could never tell by looking at her sweet face, but Tiffi, is suffering from a broken heart. Not only did Tiffi loose her home when her owner passed away, but she also has a heart defect that causes her to have a hard time catching her breath when she gets excited. After a visit with the cardiologist, we discovered that her condition cannot be surgically repaired so we have her on medications that help manage her condition. Because of Tiffi's medical needs, we are looking for a very special forever home with someone who can continue her medical care and will give her the love she deserves for the rest of her life. Tiffi is an amazing companion with so much love to give. We have no doubt that Tiffi's perfect person is out there somewhere. Please consider being Tiffi's hero and give her the comfort of knowing she has a special someone she can count on to love and cherish her.

We met Lola in the shelter where her owners had surrendered her because they could no longer care for a dog. After being asked by shelter volunteers if we could rescue Lola, we of course obliged and Lola became a Lovebug. After a few days, it became apparent that Lola was very fearful of many things and as a result, we sought the help from our professional trainer. Lola and her foster mom worked very hard to understand her fears and figure out a way to help Lola feel more comfortable and reduce the stress she felt so she could relax and feel safe. Lola and her foster mom now have a wonderful relationship because of the training they received and we know Lola will bond well with her new special person but it will take some work with ongoing professional training. Lola is uncomfortable around other dogs and children. She will require a calm home without a lot of visitors and activity and no other pets or children. We will also require that Lolas new humans seek professional training with a positive reinforcement trainer. She is very food motivated and smart as a whip so she will continue to be an excellent student. Lola is an amazing dog with so much love to give and lets face it, she is just about the cutest dog ever! We are hopeful that with enough shares someone out there will fall madly in love with this precious girl and give her the home and training she needs so she can live the life every dog deserves.

Breed: Lhasa Apso
Gender: Female
Age: 10 years
