Shirley FP Banner

Shirley FP PhotoShirley is about the sweetest and lowest maintenance dog you could find! She was pulled from a shelter in Alabama when AADR rescued her. We will never know what this precious girl went through in her past. When she first came to us, Shirley was so scared of being picked up that she braced and ducked when you reached down to pet her. But her trust and confidence came fast and built daily. After a week, she was following us around and giving us kisses. She now even rolls over for a belly rub. Her tail is always wagging to greet you.

Shirley gets along great with other dogs, big and small. She knows how to use a doggy door but also lets you know if she needs to go out. Shirley sleeps as long as you want in the mornings without a peep, rarely barks, and goes out and comes right back in after using the bathroom. She is fine with full run of the house at her foster home.

Shirley was overweight when we got her, so her new home will need to monitor her food intake.

She is the perfect companion for an older couple or single person. She is low energy but does have a precious playful side with other small dogs. She would do best in a calm household with no small children.

Shirley wants to be loved, give kisses, feel safe, and be spoiled

Shirley's dream home would consist of: 

- A fenced yard a MUST
- A warm lap to sit in
- Another dog would be great, but is not a must IF you are home a LOT
- Someone who is gentle and patient to help her through her fears
- No apartments or high-rises
- No small children

Louise FP Banner 
Louise FP PhotoLouise is a standard Chiweenie who was found at a shelter in North Alabama after one of her owners passed away and the family surrendered her and 3 other dogs. She is absolutely the sweetest dog ever! She loves to be around people and does well with children over 10 years old. We are working on use of a ramp so she can get up on the couch.    

Louise loves to be petted and have her ears scratched. She is very housebroken and walks well on a leash - she will even let you know when she needs to go out! She gets along well with other dogs and is not defensive or aggressive with dogs that she does not know when we are out for a walk. She needs a fenced yard as she likes to run, roam, and relax in the grass. 

This little one is on metabolic food for weight loss and has lost almost 5 pounds. She will need to continue with her diet until she reaches her healthy weight of approximately 15 pounds. She is more active every day as she continues to lose weight. Louise loves green beans as a treat, and will happily eat then right from the can or cooked fresh ones.    

This sweet girl is such a happy girl! She doesn’t just wag her tail; she wags her whole body!

The MUST HAVES for Louise are:

- A fenced yard
- A warm lap to sit in
- Another dog would be great, but is not a must IF you are home a LOT
- Someone who is gentle and patient to help her through her fears
- No apartments or high-rises
- No small children
- Someone to help with her continued weight loss

Little Bit_FP Banner

Little Bit_FP PhotoLittle Bit was saved by a Good Samaritan from a very busy Alabama highway, blind and going in circles. If they had not stepped up, she would have been run over. Her blindness was caused by cataracts so the rescue stepped up and gave her the surgery she needed. Little Bit can now see and is loving life! She will, however, need eye drops in her eye for the rest of her life and that could run about $30 a month. This is very important to keep her eye healthy.

She loves playing with toys and spending time following you all over the house. If you are looking for a love bug and forever companion, then you have found her. 

Our must haves (no exceptions!) for Little Bit include:
- A fenced yard
- Someone who is home a lot to keep her on her potty schedule and for her to keep you company
- No apartments or high-rises
- She either needs to be an only dog or have a home with an adult small male dog, she likes being the queen of the house

Please contact her foster mom here on Little Bit's personal page if you have any questions or to fill out the online adoption application.
