In an effort to save more lives, HT is allowing expedited adoptions for certain animals if applicants bring required paperwork. You can bring your new family member home more quickly by bringing your current pets' vet records, a copy of your lease or landlord letter stating you are permitted to have pets, and photos of your home. Help us help you adopt more quickly!

If you are interested in adopting this dog, please fill out our dog adoption questionnaire and e-mail it to Caintarecu@hotmail.com

Piper and Molly are a bonded pair that were surrendered to a rural open admissions animal shelter after their owner died. The two were in pretty rough shape, with badly overgrown nails, mobility constraints, and skin infections. HTAR pulled them from the shelter hoping to find a loving home here in the DC metro that was willing to take both, as a package, but we haven't yet found that home looking for both a Big and Little. We hate to break them up -- both girls are really easy members of the household and just want love and soft dog beds.

Molly is a 15-lb chihuahua mix. She's rarely found far from Piper's side -- she seems to draw confidence from Piper's presence. She would miss Piper more than Piper missed her, were the two separated. Molly was nearly bald when surrendered to the shelter -- HTAR, her foster, and a veterinary specialist are working together to deal with deep-seated skin issues (long-term prognosis is good but she'll likely be on a limited/hypoallergenic diet for life). As her health improved, so did her attitude. She's a spunky little thing and just as eager to go on walks as Piper is! This is no princess -- she chases critters out of the foster's yard, even the cat that is BIGGER than her. She's food motivated and **dances** when she sees her dinner being prepared. She sleeps on the big bed with her fosters -- on TOP of the covers between their feet most of the night, but around 5:30a she likes to burrow UNDER the covers between them. Molly loves to give kisses and be petted, especially tummy rubs, but is a little sensitive about her ears and may not appreciate small grabby hands, so probably best with older children (she does great with the foster's 11-yr-old granddaughter). Molly has not attended too many adoption events -- the other dogs make her anxious. She's also a little slow to warm to strangers -- not atypical for some of the smaller breeds. Molly would probably do best with a Chi-experienced family who is around more than not. Like Piper, she'd prefer single-level living.

You can save animals like this one by becoming a foster! Fosters are like way stations between high kill shelters and forever homes. We need fosters so that we can save dogs before they are euthanized at the shelters. If you are interested in becoming a foster, please check out our information about fostering by visiting http://www.homewardtrails.org/foster-a-pet/dog-and-cat-foster-program/
