Lana is an adventure seeking 2-year-old Yorkshire terrier mix that is the perfect balance of fun and loving. She is curious, playful, and enjoys her playdates with other small dogs. She has a mellow personality, but does suffer from bouts of “the zoomies” every now and then. Her antics are sure to put a smile on your face. She is altered, fully vaccinated, and can’t wait to find her family. She is a great companion when running errands, going for a ride, or a morning out at your local coffee shop. Her small size makes her perfect to take any and everywhere.

This little 2-year-old Chihuahua mix is slowly figuring out who she is. She is a fun, very loving, very sweet, and affectionate little gal. Because of past trauma, she warms up slowly and needs someone who will be patient with her and show her all the love she deserves. At just under 12 pounds, she can go everywhere with her human. She walks well on a leash and loves car rides, especially if it’s to Starbucks for a pup cup! She sleeps all night in her crate and knows to go potty outside. She needs to be in an adult-only home and another small pup would be a plus.
