A staff member writes: Hi! My name is PeeWee. I’m a super cute yorkiepoo mix and I am looking for a new home! A few months ago, I had a wee bit of a problem and I accidentally chomped on my tail. The good folks over at ACC rushed me over to the hospital where they fixed me right up! Thank you so much ACC; I feel so much better now! I’ve been chilling with my foster family recovering from my surgery ever since.
I’m a pretty happy and friendly fella. A few of my favorite things include: going for car rides, sleeping on the couch or on the bed, and hanging out with the foster fam, including my four pawed siblings, getting all the love in the world. I haven’t quite mastered the art of house training yet, but I’ve been working very hard! I’m hoping my new family will show me all of the ropes. I might be a little fella but I have a big personality! When I don’t like something (like baths – HINT HINT foster mom!) I make it pretty clear and start channeling my inner grizzly bear. My friends at ACC think I would do best with a dog savvy person who has the time and experience to help me with my training. For right now, we think a home without young children is probably for the best! If this sounds like you, and boy I sure hope it does, please email [email protected] and ask to meet PeeWee aka the CUTEST pup in town.
