Owner surrenders Pekingese to county shelter: She was no longer wanted

UPDATE: Lashes has been adopted. Thank you to everyone for sharing her story. She will be pampered and loved.

Lashes grew up in a home in Georgia, but just a few days ago, her owner surrendered the ten-year-old Pekingese to the Carroll County Animal Shelter simply stating, "we don't want her anymore."

When did breathing, compassionate, animals become yesterday's trash? Why would anyone think Lashes is disposable?

This compact bundle of fearless little pooch is making the best of her life at the shelter, but Lashes deserves a human of her own, as she is reported to love, snuggle, and be hugged.

She's as playful as a pup, but enjoys a cozy spot to curl up for an afternoon nap.

The best home for this dog would be one without small children. Lashes seems to do well with other dogs and loves people; her relationship with cats is unknown.

Lashes has already been spayed, micro-chipped, updated on all of her vaccinations, and tested to be heart worm negative.

The folks at the Carroll County Animal Shelter are very anxious to find this adorable dog a good home; her adoption fees have been reduced:

"She should be in a home where she can settle by her people on the couch or curl up in her very own dog bed for her afternoon naps. She should be in a home where she has a quiet spot to call her own when she needs it. She should be in a home where she has her own toys and treats and is treated like the princess she thinks she is. Most important, she should be in a home with someone who will make her feel loved for the rest of her days. (And since Pekingese often live to be 15 years old or more, hopefully she has many more years ahead.)"
