I am a sweet and loving girl. Animal Control found my hiding under a car and no one ever came looking for me so now I get to find a family that will love me forever. I like playing with my K9 friends or just chilling in my human's lap...I don't bother with the cats in the house either. I am very excited to me moving to New England and begin my search for a forever family!
Crate Trained: Yes
Happy Take Your Dog To Work Day from Karma & Gizmo. It's not size of the Dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the Dog. These two never fight, but they always wanna play. Friendship doesn't know size. #TYDTWD was started to let others see the bond between pets and their families in an effort to promote the adoption of animals in shelters. There are many that need forever homes. These two have taught me patience, responsibility and compassion. They've made me laugh, and have been by my side when I've cried. The pure happiness and joy I receive when I walk through the front door of my house is what turns it into a home. If you're a dog lover you know exactly what I mean. I can't even go on vacation too long because I start missing them too much. They're my fur babies. If you had the time and space to adopt why not ? Would you open your heart to something that will show you unconditional love in return ? Are you a #DogLover like we are ? @dog @dogsofinstagram @peta #adoptdontshop#shihtzu#foxhound#weeklyfluff
DOG of the WEEK: What's in a name? Well, you can be sure there is a rhyme or reason for the names given by shelter employees at CARA, albeit a mystery to some of us sometimes! Meet Slim Shady. And don't let his name mislead you, this boy is a love!
Slim Shady was found as a wandering stray by a kindhearted person who picked him up and brought him to us. He's about 3 years old and a Shih Tzu mix. Admittedly, he was a little shady right at first. He seemed a little unsure and let a growl or two slip out while being handled. While anesthetized for his neuter surgery, our vet found that Slim had an embedded thorn in his foot that was cause for great pain. And then it all made sense. Of course, he was shady. Sweet boy was in pain and couldn't tell anyone. The thorn was removed and from that day on, Slim Shady has been nothing but a gentleman and a love. All he wants is to love and be loved. Slim would love to have a home and family of his own and we believe he would make a wonderful family member for any great, loving family. He seems to love everyone he meets. Those eyes say all that is needed to be said. Also, please keep in mind that Slim will require grooming from time to time in order to keep his good looks.
Watch our sweet boy's introduction today on WLBT'S Midday Mississippi at 12:30. If he looks like the family member you've been looking for, please apply online at www.carams.org and consider coming to meet him. He's anxious to go home and we would love nothing more. Also, please share to help us find that family. #adoptdontshop#dogoftheweek#cara4pets#adoptme#wagsnwishes @wlbt3onyourside

@Regrann from @urgentdogsofmiami - For the past 3 months, adorable Scooby has watched people pass him by & not even stop to say hello. Scooby needs a hero to save his life before it's too late. Scooby #A1658828 is sadly no stranger to the shelter, having been dumped at the old shelter by his former family, and now back here AGAIN💔, all at no fault of his own. Swipe left here to see a video of him at the old shelter- one of his front legs is slightly turned out but it doesn't stop this amazing boy from running and playing and being a happy go lucky pup. Scooby deserves the chance to see that not all humans will let him down. He is so loving and did we mention adorable and friendly? Please don't let this angel lose his life here. He needs out asap. Please pledge for his rescue here. Miami Dade Animal Services is located at 3599 NW 79th Ave in Doral, FL. MDAS is open Mon-Fri 10am-6:30pm & Sat-Sun 10am-4pm.

@Regrann from @urgentdogsofmiami - VOLUNTEER FAVORITE💔😍While all of the other dogs were barking around beautiful pup Rocky, he was quietly standing at his kennelgate hoping anyone might notice him. Rocky has some of the saddest eyes you've ever seen but who can blame him? He was betrayed by the only family he's ever known and dumped at an overcrowded shelter, at no fault of his own. Please help sweet Rocky #A1704720 find the amazing home he deserves!! Swipe left for more pics and video of him! Miami Dade Animal Services is located at 3599 NW 79th Ave in Doral, FL. MDAS is open Mon-Fri 10am-6:30pm & Sat-Sun 10am-4pm. Please share, tag & repost to help #SaveRocky .
