“Histories are more full of examples of the fidelity of dogs than of friends.”

Once upon a time in a land called Montgomery, a scared little pup named Bub ran as a stray. The nights were cold, the days were lonely until he was picked up by a nice officer from the police department.
No home, no owner, no place to call his own, Bub, a 5-year-old smooth-coated Chihuahua, came to KCAC a little shy at first, but very soon he was licking the chin of the person holding him as he burrowed his head into the person’s shoulder.
The little guy enjoys getting picked up and carried around like the “Diva dog” he always knew he could be. Other dogs don’t seem to bother him. In fact, he seems genuinely happy to be around them.
He is a little head shy, so working with him toward allowing him to let you put on his harness and/or leash will help him to adjust into a great four-legged companion.
If you are looking for the sweetest, nicest, littlest 10-pound dog in a tiny compact package, then Bub is happily waiting for you!
Congratulations to Hank, our 1-year-old pit bull mix who found his forever home after waiting patiently for more than five months.
It was hard to see you go, big guy, but we all are keeping you in our thoughts, prayers and hearts. You were with us for so long and yet you never complained. When people came to see our adoptable dogs, you were the last one they wanted to see. You were skipped over more than you should have been, but you always greeted every potential adopter with a happy tail wag and a smile.
It’s your turn this time, big fella! Happy Holidays!
