Bella, chihuahua and dachshund mix

Bella is a sweet female chihuahua and dachshund mix being kept at Angel's Furry Friends.

Bella is a social animal — she gets along well with other dogs. Bella is spayed, and she has had all her shots.

Notes from Bella's caretakers:

Bella is a shy and a very smart little girl who's learning all about being in a home for the first time and she's loving every minute of her new life. In a short time period she has learned to be relaxed after being almost unapproachable at first. As soon as she realized she wasn't in any danger, Bella's playful personality emerged and she's been making her foster family laugh and smile every day as she continues to progress.

Lola, chihuahua mix

Lola is a sweet female chihuahua mix staying at Silicon Valley Pet Project.

Lola gets along well with other dogs. Lola will do best in a home without small children. She is already spayed. No need to worry: She's already house-trained.

From Lola's current caretaker:

Lola is a one-year-old, 15-pound chihuahua who is initially on the shy side, but warms up quickly. Once feeling safe, she is curious and affectionate. Lola loves to go on walks and cuddle with her person.

Zeus, Cairn terrier mix

Zeus is an adorable male Cairn terrier mix staying at Silicon Valley Pet Project.

Zeus will get along great with other dogs. He's already been neutered. Zeus is a special needs pet, so please inquire about his specific care requirements.

Notes from Zeus' caretakers:

Despite Zeus' mobility challenges, this five to six-year-old cairn terrier mix loves everyone! With a history of disc issues, this boy was surrendered to the shelter by an owner who no longer could care for him. Her wish was that someone could help find him a loving home. SVPP will try to see how we can help this poor boy with his back legs and hopes to accomplish the wish of his previous owner.
