Notes: Fluffy is a male Chihuahua mix, 8 years old and weighs 16 lbs. He was surrendered to a local shelter with 2 other dogs (now adopted) by an owner who said they could no longer care for them. He barks when he meets new folks which sometimes turns people off from giving him a chance. He seems a little more trusting when another dog is around to give him the confidence to trust new people. Once he knows you are nice he is a sweet guy. He is good with other dogs and seem indifferent to cats at the vets office. He is crate trained. He would probably be best in an all adult home due to his confidence issues. If you would like to adopt Fluffy, please fill out an application via the Adoption Information link below.

Fluffy was listed to be available for adoption on this date: Oct 23rd, 2022

One by one, they pass by my cage
Too old, too worn, too broken, they say
Way past his time, he can’t run and play
They shake their heads and go on their way
A little old man, arthritic and sore
It seems that I am wanted no more
I once had a home, I once had a bed
A place that was warm, and where I was fed
Now my muzzle is grey, and my eyes slowly fail
Who wants a dog so old and so frail?
My family decided I didn’t belong
I got in their way, my attitude wrong
Now I sit in this kennel, where day after day
The younger ones are chosen and taken away
When I had come to the end of my rope
You saw my face and again I knew hope
You saw past the grey, the legs wobbly with age
And felt I deserved life beyond this cage
You took me home, gave me food and a bed
You gently stroked my poor tired head
We snuggle and play, you talk to me low
You love me so dearly, and make sure I know
Although I have lived most of my life with another
You outshine them with a love so much stronger
I promise to return all the love I can give
To you my dear friend, as long as I live
I may be with you for a week, or for years
We will share many smiles, and a few tears
When the time comes, that God deems I must leave
I know you will cry and your heart it will grieve
When I arrive at the Bridge all brand new
My thoughts and my heart will still be with you
And I will brag to all who will hear
Of the person who made my last days so dear.
