Meet Ania . . . a darling incredibly loving, snuggly, affectionate and friendly Bichon Frise mix with a beautiful curly non-shedding white coat and big brown eyes that give evidence of her happy trusting nature. She weighs 12 pounds and, based on what we have learned from animal control, was probably born in July 2015. Ania was found in the home of a cat hoarder; she and her brothers, Little Boy and Big Boy, were living in the most appalling inhumane conditions imaginable. Ania was named after the Investigator who rescued her. Ania loves toys (she carries them everywhere), treats, and her brothers. She is shy, good-natured, gentle and well mannered; appears to be housetrained but will need time and patience to adjust to your home and schedule. Ania has a very playful personality and enjoys the company of small young dogs and older children. As a very young pup, she and her brothers were the victims of a botched “declaw” procedure. Ania is missing the digits on her rear feet and the trauma left her with osteoarthritis. However, her damaged feet don’t stop her or even slow her down and there is no reason why this darling dog cannot enjoy a normal life climbing stairs, chasing squirrels, jumping off furniture, splashing through puddles, digging holes and wrestling with other small dogs. She can tolerate a crate only for brief periods of time but accepts confinement to a small room just fine. A charming lap dog but no couch-potato, Ania loves to run and chase. Young, waggy tailed, noisy and very playful, this adorable dog is eager to find a family with another small friendly doggy playmate and a fenced-in yard (she LOVES the outdoors!). Ania is spayed, microchipped, current on all vaccines, heartworm and flea/tick preventative, and she has had a complete physical and dental. Her adoption fee is $350.
