Velma is a very gentle and sensitive 3-year-old, 5-pound Chihuahua. She is a real love who wants more than anything to spend her days in the lap of her favorite person. Her big hearted personality will thrive in a quiet home where she is showered with affection. A bit of a couch potato, she is not interested running marathons unless the marathons are bouncing from one warm lap to another. She is a playful little thing who isn't particularly materialistic, except when it comes to squeaky toys. Velma loves other tiny dogs and could probably live peacefully in a home with dog savvy cats if properly introduced.

    Gandhi is truly an amazing cat. He greets everyone he meets with an inquisitive look, as if saying "Hello, are you here to spoil me?" He has soft, beautiful, bushy black fur (with a speckled white patch thrown in for interest) and the sweetest personality imaginable. Gandhi is 6 years old and looking forward to a long lifetime of cat naps with his new family, with some playtime and grooming mixed in for good measure. With his easygoing personality, Gandhi will be a good fit in most homes and will probably do well with other furry friends (after a proper introduction).
