2 years old, Black Teriffic Terrier mix, Melissa, of ancient Greek mythology, was a nymph who discovered honey and taught it's use. She is small but is power packed with love and energy. Melissa is about 2 years old. She is now spayed, micro chipped and current on her vaccines. She lives to cuddle and be close. Now how sweet can that be? Perhaps almost as sweet as Melissa is herself. She weighs 6 1/2 pounds and could gain a pound or two. She plays with all the other PPR dogs and seems to love every minute of it.

3 years old, White, Poodle, Socrates was grateful for his stay in the shelter because he had the first bath and grooming in his life. He also was pleased because food arrived daily in a bowl and suddenly life was predictable. Since Socrates is rather philosophical about his prior life he takes it in stride and holds no grudges. He has the wisdom of the ages and he also has the smarts that Poodles are known for so he will be just fine. After all, he taught ethics to Plato, his student, so he is a very balanced and thoughtful dog. Now that he is clean, neutered, micro chipped and vaccinated, Plato is ready to begin his true mission. He will bring enthusiasm and joy to his every day, a lesson that we all should learn. As a bonus, Socrates will not shed. What more could anyone ask for?

5 to 6 years old, White and Tan. Terrier mix. Katie, and old English name that means "pure" will bring you complete and pure happiness. She seems to have a smile all the time, summer, winter, fall or spring. She is a special little girl weighing almost 7 pounds. How she ended up in the shelter is anyone's guess and probably because she is not a puppy she was passed over numerous times. We fell in love with her as soon as we saw her picture and quickly went to rescue her. She can be on your lap or sitting next to you on the couch or in your arms. She doesn't care as long as she has YOU.

4-5 years old, Cream and Tan, Terrier mix, Murphy is an ideal family dog. He loves everyone and is particularly enthusiastic about children. He's a sturdy little terrier mix with just the right attitude: the world is a wonderful place and he's happy to be in it. (He is probably even a little bit happier than ever since he is safely out of the shelter.) He is about 4-5 years old but has the energy level of a puppy. Murphy, a sturdy 17 pounds is neutered, micro chipped and current on all his vaccines. If you are looking for a best friend and a full time playmate for the whole family than play until you drop and then settle down for an afternoon nap. He'll cuddle right in.

9 to 10 years old. White and Tan. Long Haired Chihuahua. This is the year for Clipper and this tiniest team member is ready to go all the way. He's as sweet and as loving as can possibly fit into 7 pounds of Chihuahua. We are at a loss to say how Clipper came to find himself in the animal shelter at his age but we can be sure that he will never be back in one again. He's a little dog, now neutered, micro chipped and current on all his vaccines. Chihuahuas are long lived and this 10 year old guy intends to be around for many years to share your bed, so don't be shy. Adopting a senior dog can present some challenges but the rewards are greater still. Open your heart, lift up the covers and prepare to snuggle every night with Clipper. His foster Mom told us he is totally house broken and loves to take brisk walks--like a young pup.

1 year old, Tan . Terrier mix. Just one look at Ava and you will fall in love with her much like Frank Sinatra did with Ava Gardner. She's a lovely young lady, about a year old with a soft, fluffy coat that begs petting. When she turns her smile on your, all bets are off; she has won your heart. Ava weighs 11 pounds, she is spayed, micro chipped and current on all her vaccines. She is doing wonderfully meeting and playing with her new friends in the play yard at Perfect Pet but she might enjoy being your only dog at home. Ava is now nominated for an academy award and expects to win in her category, best new dog. Welcome Ava...

2 years old, Red and White. Chihuahua mix. Patrick was hit by a car on St. Patty's Day and his owner did not want to deal with it so they brought him to the shelter. This dog won the hearts of everybody including the wonderful shelter vet who had to remove his hind leg. Patrick does not know he is a tripod: he runs and plays with all of the Perfect Pet dogs, gives kisses to anyone who will let him and has the sweetest, loving disposition. We have told him life will be beautiful from now on and his forever home is just around the corner. Patrick is neutered, micro chipped and current on his vaccines. He loves to cuddle and will fall asleep in your arms and more good news, his foster Mom says he is potty trained as well.

18 months old, Tan, Brussels Griffon mix, Topanga is just a wisp of a dog, a free spirit floating by at 14 pounds. He's a happy dog, carefree and eager to meet people and tell them how much he loves them. Topanga hardly noticed the hardships of the shelter and he is proof of the resilience of our canine friends. He is now neutered, micro chipped and current on his vaccines. He would like to begin the holidays at home with a family of his own. When we adopted Topanga we were never told he would not be allowed in the house. Why would anyone adopt a dog and leave them outside. YIKES. Therefore, Topanga, being bored would dig under a fence and try to visit neighbors and play with their dog. All we can say is "thank goodness Topanga has been returned to PPR and we promise him this will never happen again."

we always have a variety of small dogs looking for a home!
