AGE:
Less than 1 year

STATUS: ADOPTED

Hi, my name is JoJo. I was headed for the chopping block due to a deadly health condition known as PRAA when Glimmer stepped in and saved me. They got me the surgery I needed, but I ended up dying on the table. The surgeon revived me, but now I'm blind. They say I may see again, but only time will tell. I am super sweet and lovable, and I have more hair now than I did in this picture!

Hi, my name is Lolli. I'm a very sweet and extremely loyal little dog. My family gave me and my babies up when they decided they couldn't handle my unplanned pregnancy. I love everyone here at Glimmer, and I follow everyone around - especially Donna (she's my favorite)! I'd make a great companion. My only flaw is that I steal lipstick out of people's purses... and then I eat it!

NAME: Rambo
BREED: Chihuahua
AGE: 4 Years
SEX: Male

STATUS: ADOPTED

Hi, my name is Rambo. I'm a great little dog, but I'm afraid of my own shadow. I was rescued from a puppy mill along with dozens of other dogs here at Glimmer, and I've never known what it's like to have a family who loves me. I don't bite, I'm just very afraid, which makes it hard for any family to want to adopt me.
