Her Story

Crisco is a fun-loving, sweet little Yorkie. She is 15 months old and came to us (with 8 of her friends) from a 600 square foot apartment where many dogs roamed free but had minimal standards of nutrition and no veterinary care. They were multiplying rapidly and we are fortunate to have rescued them while they are still young so that we can play a part in these great dogs receiving proper care and finding them the families that they deserve. We are still working to rescue additional dogs from these hoarding type living conditions. 

Crisco is especially bonded  to her best friend, Little Dee, and our goal is to find them a home together. Crisco is very friendly and loves to play with small toys and also enjoys snuggling on your lap. She is eager for one-on-one attention after sharing space with so many dogs.

The adoption fee for Crisco is $300 ($500 for both Crisco and Little Dee together)and includes recent spay, microchip, Bordetella, boosters, deworming and flea/heartworm prevention. If you are interested in meeting Crisco and Little Dee, please fill out an application here.
