Darla is a 3 year old chihuahua mix. She weighs 9 pounds. She was taken to a shelter after having been hit by a car. Her owners never came for her. Her pelvis was broken in 3 places. x-rays showed she also has hip dysplasia on the right side with associated arthritis. She has been on bed rest for a long time healing on her own. She walks normally but may have difficulty when she gets older. She is a very sweat loving little girl who just wants a lap to sit on or to lay under the covers with you. Her adoption fee is $150.

To prospective adopters;
It is true rescuers are more particular of who they adopt dogs too. We see all the horrible treatment of animals every day. We literally rescue dogs from the poor or abusive treatment of humans. In my personal opinion, society has evolved to where owning a dog is a right and privilege. Most people consider only what they want and not what is right for the dog. That is why once a dog is in our hands and consequently in our hearts, we make sure that anyone who adopts an animal from us has a good life to offer the dog. It is not an easy task. Everyone wants a dog. We try to screen people first before getting too involved with helping them find a dog, or we would be simply selling dogs. We are also a strictly a volunteer organization. Most of us work at least part time jobs. Our time to the rescue is valuable and limited. We believe that anyone who is sincerely a wonderful potential adopter, will endure the process.
