Pet of the Week!


 Heath - 10 month old male chihuahua

Heath is a 10 month old male chihuahua mix. Sweet and affectionate, his kisses are given freely. He is a great little lap dog and loves being carried around. Heath has significant vision impairment that he was likely born with. We don't believe he's entirely blind, but he can't see most things until they are very close to him. That doesn't seem to slow him down much though. While he may run into walls once in a while, he gets around very well with his ears and nose guiding him. He is looking for a home that can work with his handicap and will reward his family with kisses a-plenty.
