Adopted: Paige

Hi! My name is Paige. I am adorable and loving!

Quick Fact Sheet:

  • Age: 3 years
  • Breed:Terrier mix (maybe Feist mix?)
  • Size:24 pounds, full grown!
  • Gender: Female, spayed

Very shy at first but wants attention and affection very much.
Traumatic back story: Was found stray and unable to be caught, so folks in KY set a live trap for her. It worked, but she was stuck in the trap, in frigid, freezing temperatures, for 12+ hours before someone checked. Must have been very scary and terribly cold for this little girl with very, very short fur.
Nervous with the small dogs in her foster home; did fine with the dogs with whom she was kenneled at the KY shelter.
Great with the 8 year old in her foster home
Not yet cat tested.
More info coming as we get to know her better!Continue reading

I was too sweet, she thought, and far too friendly. … Continue reading
