We don’t often get many little dogs staying with us here the sanctuary. So, it has been quite the experience having three pint sized pooches here at once! But don’t let their miniature size fool you. They pack just as much trouble as the biggest lab or pit bull! So let’s meet our tiny terrors.
Cody is a 5 year old chihuahua mix who has been with us for a few months. He likes to play ball and spend time around other dogs. However, there may be a chance that he thinks he is a cat, since he most certainly does not like people paying him too much attention and cannot deal with changes to his routine.
Lulu is Cody’s 10 year old partner in crime. If Cody might think he’s a cat, then Lulu surely thinks she’s a lion. While she’s always ready for some quiet snuggling from humans, if you get her around other dogs, be ready to hear her roar!
And rounding out our pack of pint sized pooches is Mitch. Whether it’s jumping up on you, tugging on the leash or your sleeve, trying to untie your shoes, or stealing any towel in sight, it’s all part of a day’s fun for him. Just watch your fingers when it’s time to put his harness on.
Now, lest you think we’re ones to let these cuties get away with whatever they want, all three have been attending Canine College classes with our dedicated (and brave) volunteers, and are showing great improvement. In no time, we’ll have these diminutive delinquents on the straight and narrow and behaving as the happy doggy citizens we know they can be.
It’s all part of the work we do here at the Our Companions Animal Rescue Sanctuary.
