Hilton
Age: 2 Months Old / Breed: Chihuahua / Jack Russell Terrier / Sex: Female / Rescue: Louie’s Legacy
”If you want a kitten sized puppy that plays on it's own but seeks your attention and kisses, then this is your litter!! This litter of Chihuahua/Jack Russell Terrier mix puppies are 2 months old and only weigh 2 lbs each.. they are the size of kittens (for now)! Each puppy is confident, independent but loves attention from their people and will come to you with their tails wagging and then roll over on their back for a belly rub:) We did not see mom or dad, so their breed and adult size cannot be guaranteed. This litter has been fostered with a 55lb pitbull mix and they seek her out for attention and affirmation. If she signals to back away with a growl, they respond. They reacted appropriately to children when handled gently. Each puppy is learning to "go potty" outside or use a puppy pee pad. Each also knows that their shared crate is their safe place to go to sleep. Hilton is the shorter of the more Chihuahua looking girls. She has a similar personality to her sister Pawley and is confident but seeks attention from her people. Her little tail wags with anticipation of being picked up. If you are interested in adopting one of these cuties, apply today! Hilton's adoption fee is $400.”

Billie
Age: 2 Months Old / Breed: Domestic Short Hair / Sex: Female / Rescue: Louie’s Legacy
”Meet Billie! She is 2 months old and the most adorable little girl who loves everyone she meets! Billie is friendly and playful but she loves to cuddle with her foster family on the couch every chance she gets. Billie is fostered with small dogs and children. She’s fully litter box trained. If you’re looking to add a wonderful little kitten to your family, please consider “Billie”! Her adoption fee is $75, or adopt two kittens for $110.
Kittens are very social by nature, so if there is no other cat in the home, our kittens (under one year of age) are adopted in pairs.”

Charleston Chunk
Age: 2 Years Old / Breed: Bluetick Coonhound / Sex: Male / Rescue: Louie’s Legacy
”Looking for a Southern gentleman with broad shoulders and dreamy brown eyes? Look no further than Charleston Chunk! Chunk the Hunk is a 2 year old Bluetick Coonhound tipping the scales at a meaty 90lbs. This big squish is so sweet and gentle for being so formidable. In fact, at times, Charleston can be a bit scared of men and sudden movements, but we are working to build his confidence. Chunk is a smart boy who is already crate trained and making strides in house training. He does get along with dogs of similar or smaller size, but can be a bit protective of his food and toys. Speaking of toys, Chunk’s favorite thing to do is to pull out a toy from the toy basket, take it outside, inspect it, and repeat until the basket is completely empty. He absolutely loves the outdoors and sometimes displays his coonhound stubbornness by refusing to come inside. Charles would love a fenced yard where he can hang out for a day of leisure on the veranda, surveying his land, receiving head scratches from his humans. Could Charleston be the Noah to your Allie? His adoption fee is $250.”

Tina Fey
Age: 3.5 Years Old / Breed: Australian Shepherd / Sex: Female / Rescue: Louie’s Legacy
”Hi, my names Tina Fey! I am a 3.5 year old Australian Shepard mix who weighs around 40 lbs. I am not your typical high energy Aussie, I would much rather lounge around the house or roll around in the grass then go on long walks at the park. I love playing with kids, and I get along great with my foster brother who is a pretty big dog. I am almost completely house trained, and plan on being a pro at it in no time. I love carrying toys around, but I don't really like to chew on them. If I could live a life where I just got snuggled and pet all day, I would be in heaven. If you'd like to set up a time and place to meet me, go on ahead and apply to adopt me today! Tina's adoption fee is $250.”

Peter
Age: 2 Months Old / Breed: Domestic Shorthair / Sex: Male / Rescue: SAAP
”If you are looking for a playmate for your current cat or dog, Peter is your guy! He is a handsome, orange tabby, with the sweetest eyes. He loves to play and needs a friend, whether it be a human, dog or another cat. He is not a fan of being alone and will meow when he is wanting attention. He is very passionate about his playtime and may consider all parts of your body a toy at times. So probably best with older children. (My kids who are middle school age and older love playing with him!) He does finally tucker out and will lay next to you for a nap. He is starting to warm up and be more affectionate to us but not a fan of being picked up and held, which is typical for many active kittens! He is a cutie, with a loud purr, that provides lots of entertainment!”
