Small Wonders

Pets for Adoption

Is your little one a consummate lap dog? Or, really, more of a huge dog in a tiny body? Either way, small dogs need to learn etiquette, too! Because of their manageable size, small-dog guardians often choose to overlook shyness, jumping, barking, or other typical small-dog quirks. Give your small dog a little something special. Give them the chance to shine!
