MEET FERRIS….and on his “day off,” he landed on the freeway, lost and forlorn.  This precious, 2-3 yr old,  8 lb, golden, Maltese, Shih Tzu ? mix was brought to us when his Good Samaritan, who saved his life, was unable to find his people and had no place to put him.  So, despite his filth and fleas, we were the lucky ones she chose to take care of him.    Ferris has a personality that will endear you to him.  He is like a velcro dog, once he knows you, and will kiss you to let you know he trusts you.  He can be a little shy at first or bark if he doesn’t know you.  He is submissive and will let dogs crawl all over him, but he also can be dominant, despite his petite size.  Ferris could go to almost any home, except not one where he is left alone all day or a senior home where he might trip someone, as he is usually under foot or on your lap!  He has good energy, LOVES to go for walks, loves his toys….but most of all his people. Another dog would be preferred, kids over 8 yrs old welcomed!  Are you the forever home for Ferris?

Hooray! This dog has been adopted!
