Meet Peppermint Patty - a loving, sweet, respectful little girl who is looking for a loving furever family! She is currently in foster care and this is what her foster mommy had to say about her:
"Patty is a young and energetic 8-pound gal with the sweetest doting brown eyes. She is shy and timid at first, but once she understands that she is in a safe environment, she warms up, comes out of her shell and is very eager to please. She absolutely loves to go for walks. She walks really well on a leash and is very responsive to commands and direction. Once she’s had her morning walk, she is happy to curl up in a bed and chill the rest of the day. She is potty trained and is not a marker—I have had no accidents in the house. She is very food motivated and as with most small dogs, attention should be given to portion control. She gets along well with other small dogs. She has been living with 3 small males and 1 small female and there have been no issues. I have not had the opportunity to assess her with large dogs or cats. I believe she would do well as an only dog or in a home with one or two other small dogs. I also believe she will do well with respectful and well-behaved young children. I have not been able to test this out with my 18-month old because he is neither respectful nor well behaved. But what I can say is that she is completely unfazed by my child’s screaming, wailing and loud noises through out the day. She wags her tail at him and shows interest in his presence. She sleeps alone in her kennel at night (door open) but I’m sure she would snuggle in bed too (if we had the room for her!). After about 6 weeks, she indicated a desire to snuggle on the couch at night while we watch TV and she is very respectful of the other dogs and their space. She just wants a warm bed, blankie and some love! She will make a fabulous and loyal companion to a very lucky someone who opens his or her heart up to her."
Peppermint Patty is a 'Constant Companion' when accessed using the ASPCA "Meet Your Match" program. View the video here:

Tiny Loving Canines Inc in Simi Valley, CA sold me a puppy with parvo. Did not inform me about this but was so eager and happy to take my $500 (the employee even said I know $500 is over the top but your paying to keep our company in business.) Shortly after having my new loved puppy I noticed extreme behavior/appearance changes. Took her to the vet and was informed the puppy has parvo. I call TLC and before mentioning anything about parvo Aubri Lancaster who is an Assistant Manager tells me they will be refunding my $500 and the director Linda Nelson will be calling me. Linda Nelson calls shortly after and tells me my new puppy was with 4 other puppies and one had parvo. Which now means if my new puppy has it they all have it. I inform Linda Nelson my puppy has been hospitalized and now I'm occurring extreme pet bills. Linda then turned extremely rude. I tell her I would put this horrible experience on social media so no one else has to go through this. Linda says I'm a bully and wanted to hear nothing anymore and instead calls me a b**** and tells me to euthanize my new puppy and hangs the phone up. I call TLC back and Aubri answers and is very brief with me. She refunds my $500 and hangs up. TLC did not call and inform me about this I had to call and find out on my own. Which explains why as soon as I call the first thing they mention is I will have a full $500 refund and Linda will be in touch. Being told to just euthanize my dog was unbelievable yet alone being called a b****. I highly recommend do not buy from this place. Linda is completely unprofessional. They have negative reviews all over online please read about the company before going. Aftermath of leaving a negative but true complaint online: When TLC receives negative reviews they call "complaints" employer to notify them that their employee has "talked negative" about their company online. They want to take money from the public on but deletes the "negative" but true complaints from it then disables the ability to leave comments. They contact their lawyer and have their lawyer contact the customer about their negative review. They try to get negative but true complaints taken offline. My dog did not make it after being hospialized and passed away from parvo.
