You must be a pre-screened adopter to spend time with me.
See the About Adopting page to fill out an application ahead of time or stop by the shelter!

Hello Mia, how did you come to be at the shelter?
"Hello, I came to the shelter because I had some complications in my life. I was too young to be a mom and didn't know what I was doing, but my babies didn't understand that. The staff here were really worried for awhile, but with a lot of hard work all the way around, I learned to do what my babies needed me to do."

Wow, that is quite the introduction!
"Yes, it was a rough road, but my babies have been adopted, I've been spoiled rotten, and I am ready to find my forever home."

So what kind of home are you looking for?
"A home that will shower me with love. I never really had the chance to be a puppy or even a companion. I would also like a home that will give me all the toys I never got to have. I LOVE toys! I have a stuffed elephant at the shelter that I'm in love with! I'm still a young lady that needs help learning and sometimes I get excited around people and jump on them. I need a home that is willing to help teach me manners."

The staff says your coat was a bit patchy when you came in, can you tell us why?

"Actually, that is why I am considered a special needs pet! I have some skin issues, but it's better now that I'm on some medicine. I could go into detail, but it's required that you ask to speak to a member of our vet staff about my condition anyway if you are interested in adopting me."

What's your personality like? Are you a social butterfly or the 'hang in the back of the crowd' type?

"With people, I'm a social butterfly for sure! I love to visit everyone! I probably shouldn't go home with small children though, as I may accidentally bowl them over when I'm excited. The staff here think I would be best with children 9+. With other dogs...well, let's just say I don't like to share. I need to be the only dog in the home as I am a bit of an attention hog. Other dogs probably shouldn't visit either. I like my people to be JUST mine."

So what else do you think your new family should know?

"I am now spayed. I am microchipped, have been treated with Frontline, and have started on my basic vaccinations. Did I mention I love to play with toys?? I just love love love toys!"

Thank you for your time Mia!
"Thank you! Can you throw that ball for me?"
