Meet Sheila (aka Lela)

This sweet little girl is Sheila. She is a spayed female, 5 year old Chinese Crested Dog mix. Sheila originally came from a high volume breeding situation where she did not receive much needed socialization skills. She has come a long way in her foster home but is still very shy with new people and surroundings and will require a home with patience and understanding while she adjusts to her new environment. She is currently in a foster home and has learned to trust but it takes her a long time to warm up to new people. She is well mannered and loves to play with other dogs. Sheila requires an adopter with a securely fenced yard so she can run and play safely. She is house trained to a puppy pad but will also go outside if given the opportunity. An adopter that understands an initially fearful dog and is willing to wait to gain Sheila's trust, will be rewarded with a loyal and loving companion.

Due to Sheila's fearful nature, we are requiring that her adopter lives in Anderson Township, Ohio. If Sheila manages to escape her adopters, we want to be close enough to come help search for her right away.

To complete our easy online adoption application, please visit our website at All adoption information and applications can be found under the ADOPTION CENTER tab.

Once your application is submitted, you will be redirected to a confirmation page on our website. This is your confirmation that we received your application. Please read the page thoroughly so you will know what to expect next in our adoption process.

Adoption events are held every Saturday in our thrift store from 1:00 to 4:00pm. Please complete your adoption application in advance so our volunteers have time to screen and contact potential adopters.

All applications are reviewed in the order they are received and qualifications are based on best fit for each individual pet. A volunteer will contact you if you are selected for a meet with adoptable pet. Final approval is always made in person.

Peppermint Pig Animal Rescue is a no-kill rescue. Please consider sponsoring a pet or donating to our cause. Click the DONATE tab on our website to learn more about how you can help. THANK YOU !
