Name: Lil Petey Breed: wire haired terrier mix Age: 10 years young Weight: 10-15lbs
Background info: From what we were told, he came from the home of a double paraplegic senior who had a welfare check called on them. When the authorities got there they found the home owner and 8 dogs living in unimaginable conditions. The owner was placed in a senior living home and the dogs were removed. They were covered in feces, urine and fleas. They were not house trained and were allowed to potty where ever there was space and had no knowledge of the proper way to act in a home.
Temperament now: He is very very sweet and wants to be in your lap. He is good with people and polite dogs, not great with large dogs unless they are sweet. NOT good with cats. LOVES to snuggle and LOVES soft toys. Very patient boy will wait forever for you to tell him he can sit with you after you are done eating. He has come a very long way but still not 100% potty trained and will not back down from a fight.

Zoombie came to us...she walked right up to the front door and asked for help. She had 6 week old kittens with her, was pregnant again, and had recently been attacked by something that ripped open her mouth and throat yet she would still carry mouthfuls of food to her kittens even though she could barely eat and was terribly skinny herself. We got her all fixed up and realized she really really hates being inside so being that she stays on site she is now our mouser.
We also have 9 other very friendly colony cats that all just kind of moved onto the property. I'm assuming they just tell other neglected cats about our place and bring them along haha.
