  • Chihuahua
  • Spayed/Neutered
Don't be fooled by my age or my name, just because I played the very famous dog in the Wizard Of Oz doesn't mean I'm actually ancient. Actually, they started studying my genes because I'm in excellent health for such an old fart! We don't really know how many years young I am but i don't really care because I feel young and that's all that matters.

Jill ran up the hill with her brother Jack and came tumbling down and landed with us at Lionel's Legacy. Oh boy was she happy as she jumped right up and happily greeted us!

She is good with everyone and fits in easily everywhere she goes. She loves to cuddle right up by your neck so we wonder if she might be part cat? We'll leave that up to you to decide when you bring her into your home. Jill is approx. 9-10 years old

Eve has some typical senior medical issues but true to canines who seize the moment that's exactly what she's doing. She goes for daily walks with other young and old canines and likes to play in the evening when everyone is feeling frisky. Eve has what's called chronic valvular heart disease and sinus arrhythmia or as the vet called it Dobie Heart Disease which is considered congenital. She seems to have no complications from this and lives like a normal aging senior.

But watch out, once he gets going he's devilishly fast and now that he is on Rimadyl he's feeling so much better! Tadpole gets along great with female dogs and loves to be loved and cuddled, he's very social and outgoing and will sometimes get so excited to see you or be held that he might widdle the excitement out of himself!

Jane is a sweet gal and has had a rough go of it. You see she has the curse of the fair skinned pittie belly. Jane has had an incredible recovery, almost miraculous! When she came to us from OC shelter we weren't sure if we'd be able to help her. Her belly was covered with skin cancer, likely from too much lounging in the sun. Fortunately, the skin cancer was topical and was removed thanks to a 2 step surgical procedure from our incredible vets at Newport Beach Vet. Jane is great with big dogs, we don't really know how she is with little dogs and cats. Of course Jane is great with people, she's a pittie! Let us know if you'd to have this big old love bug join you on the couch, bed, for dinner and breakfast, She's available and interested!

Sarah is a full figured gal but doing well thanks to a good diet, exercise and thyroid medication.

Basically Sarah wants to know what fun adventures you have in store for her each and every day because she will be your co-pilot!
