Little Charlie is a sweet girl who lost her home when her owner passed away and no one in the family was able to take her in. She would love a quiet home with a family who will give her the time she needs to adjust to life's twists and turns. She is shy with new people at first. She is just asking for a little time and understanding as her world has been turned upside down these last few months.

Senior sweetheart: 11 year old, Buttercup has had a rough go so far. Adopted from us by a loving local man, who then became ill. Adopted again to what we thought would be her forever home. Unfortunately she was returned to us when the owner lost their home. Buttercup sits patiently and waits for her final home. The one she hopes she will spend her golden years in without interruption. At her age she deserves this. Buttercup is a dignified senior who will give anyone lots of joy!
