Pepper (A1014667) is in the same run as Duchess. She is a spayed 10-yr-old Terrier who has been in the shelter since March 4. My friend was able to get Pepper out of the cage, and she was okay with being picked up. Although she shook from fear while in my friend's lap, she allowed my friend to look at her teeth, touch her all over, etc. without any negative response. She is missing some teeth, is thin, and is missing about a third of her hair. After getting a chance to walk around, when called back, Pepper jumped back up into the lap, snuggled, and gave a gentle kiss. Pepper likely has several more years in which she could be someone's loving companion. Hopefully, there is a person who has love they would be willing to share.
The North Central Shelter is at 3201 Lacy Street, Los Angeles, CA 90031

Two Tiny Seniors Dying for New Home
Duchess (A1014940) is a spayed Dachshund, approximately 8-yrs-old, who is blind. Duchess has been in the shelter since March 8 and you can imagine how scared she must be surrounded by cement walls, barking dogs, and not being able to identify what is going on around her. How great it would be if she had a pillow to lie on and a lap to curl up on in a home or apartment where she could feel safe and secure.
