Charming little Lucy is a Crested/Xolo who is
approximately 7 years old and weighs about 8 lbs. She
is a very special girl. She suffered from chronic ear
infections for most of her life and her former owner
couldn't afford to treat them properly, so she was very
miserable. We also suspect she may have been kept in
a wire-bottomed cage due to the abscesses she had
on her paw pads and tail. Fortunately her owner turned
her over to us and we promptly scheduled surgery for
her ears. She had double ear canal ablations (removal
of both canals) and is mostly deaf, although the vet
suspected she was mostly deaf before, due to the
severity of the scar tissue in her ears. She can still
hear a bit, as she knows when her foster moms are
calling her. She is a total mushy little love bug! She
loves every person she has met and is very
affectionate. She loves sleeping under the covers with
her person-that is a must for her! She enjoys getting
dressed in her clothes and is very food motivated.
Sometimes she is a little too enthusiastic about taking
treats, so she is working on learning to take them more
gently. She is also working on her house training. She
will go both outside and on potty pads and gets it right
most of the time, but will need continued work on that
in her forever home. She gets along well with other low
key, gentle dogs. She is not a fan of dominant, pushy
or noisy dogs as they bring out the Xolo side of her!
She hangs out quietly on the couch all day while her
foster moms work. She will play with toys a bit, but
mostly enjoys just hanging out and snuggling with her
people. She is an absolute delight! Due to her small
size and enthusiasm for treats, she needs a home
without small children.

|Gilbert has been adopted!

They are being fostered in the
Detroit MI area.
|Say hello to Scully and Scrappy! This darling bonded
pair of boys (10 years old) have just arrived and are
currently being evaluated. They must be adopted
together. So far we know that they get along well with
other dogs. They like to be touching each other as
much as possible, as you can see! They also love to be
in your lap or snuggled beside you all the time, so a
home where they are not alone a lot is required. They
are hairy hairless boys and they are very handsome!
Please check back for updates soon.
(Scully & Scrappy are being fostered in southern DE)
