Well hello there, I’m Tinky. Or just plain ole’ Tink. I’m a sweet girl. I’ve got quite the personality. I’m a bit persnickety with a smidge of finicky. But, I’m a sweetie all the same! I’ve had 8 fantastic years in a home, so I’m just a little unsure of this new place yet. The nice people here tell me I’ll adjust soon, and my forever home will come soon! I personally attribute a lot of my personality to my rather large tummy. A diet sure would help me! I’d like someone who would make me play, and brush brush brush me!  It probably would be best if I be your only fur-baby in your home.  I’m calm, quiet, and beautiful. Hopefully that’s everything you’re looking for! Come by and see me, I’d love a visitor or two!
 Hello there, I’m Miss sweet Ariel. I’m an old lady, but I still love all the same! My eyes are really fuzzy, my ears don’t work well, but my heart…well that’s pure gold and full of love! I’ll still give you kisses, and cuddle up beside you! I LOVE to be outside and running around in the grass. I enjoy walks but have to use a harness because a collar is too much stress on my throat, but I’ve got a pretty one here that I’ll bring home with me! Come and meet me, I’d sure love some attention! Make sure to take me out in the play yard so you can see me move!
