MEET ASIA…a 4 yr old, cream and tan (purple Mohawk compliments of the shelter and LHH),  7 lb, waif of a Maltese/Poodle/Chi mix, who sadly was abused.  She is a stranger in her own world, but she is slowly but surely feeling stronger to venture out and check everything out.  The shelter shaved her because you couldn’t tell her top from her bottom, she was so matted!  Still Asia has a heart of gold….and it’s wonderful to watch her open up and begin to trust.  She’s a funny, quirky, happy go lucky, playful wonderful little girl….with a great sense of humor…and she absolutely deserves a second chance to be loved.  Her fear was classified as aggression at the shelter, so she was left behind.  Once Asia learns to trust you, which can happen overnight if you are her person, she is one of the most affectionate dogs you will ever meet. She is snippy with strangers, so you have to be patient and work with her…though she never means to “bite.”  She bonds quickly to her human and loves to snuggle and kiss!  She can be fearful of new people, so she will need an adoptive family who is understanding, patient and experienced.  Asia’s best friend, after her human, is her basket of toys!  She will jump 3 feet in the air …  fetch and bring the toy back! The ideal home for this little Munchkin would be with one or two dogs, a single person and no children.  Doing great with her potty training but no promises at your house!  Are you Asia’s hero?
