Carlissa is a dear sweet girl who suffered for nearly 5 years in a Nebraska puppy mill. She had untreated periodontal disease and lost 10 teeth on her first vet visit. She is really enjoying herself now that she is free. Touching grass for the first time in her life was such a pleasure to her. She loves running and playing in the yard with her doggie friends, and she is warming up to people and learning that life (and humans) can be good. She has learned to search for available laps and really enjoys cuddling with the staff and volunteers. Carlissa is a female longhaired Chihuahua. She was born 11/1/04 and weighs 9.6 pounds.
