I went to the local animal shelter and found a darling rat terrier/shelty? small adult female who is quite the charmer. I am taking her to the vet tomorrow to get her shots and general physical. She doesn't act like she feels good, but nothing risked, nothing gained. She went to sleep in my arms just like a baby. I will be having her spayed PDQ if she is healthy enough. She was found on a doorstep, very thirsty. She even appears to have some knowledge of potty training.
What kind of food is best for small dogs? I got dry, tiny pieces, but she hasn't touched it. I know in new situations, animals don't always eat, but she seems to be just soaking in the quiet in our house.
I also found that the Pet Smarts in Oklahoma City do not sell dogs and cats anymore. The animals they have are rescued from shelters. Their sign says they don't sell dogs and cats because there are so many unwanted animals and so they have adoption fairs on the week ends. I was impressed.
