Cierra, Boca, Hera, and Zane. These four dogs changed my life. Each one was a great risk that came with great reward. Each had a life lesson for me. I continue to learn from every dog that enters my life as a rescue, foster, or my own. I will forever be grateful for these four, and miss them deeply.
Cierra (Aug 26, 2003 – Mar 27, 2015) and Boca (Oct 31, 2008 – Dec 31, 2016)

My four with guest Xena (English Bulldog). Ginger, Liam, Phinn and Kei.
Liam and Kei: Kei is an owner surrender that came to Little Heart K9 and is staying forever.
Liam (aka: Liam Ari Puppypants)
Vader is a young rescued Belgian Malinois that came to Little Heart K9 as an owner surrender. For years, I have wished for a female Malinois, but the Universe keeps sending me boys. Vader has stolen my heart, and will become a permanent pack member.
Vader (aka: Vader Von Maligator)
Wonton (aka: Chihuahua) is an unexpected pack addition. While I was at PACC (Pima County Animal Care & Control) to pick up a German Shepherd, I saw two elderly Chihuahua’s. I kept thinking about them, so a few days later I went back, and adopted Wonton (the elderly female Chi had been adopted earlier that day). Wonton is about 12 years old, Valley Fever positive, and the VF has taken a toll on his old bones, he is crippled but can still hop like a bunny. He will stay with our pack and we will give him the best quality of life possible until he tells us it’s time for him to go.
Fab 5: Liam, Phinn, Kei, Wonton, and Vader.
We had to say “see you later, little man” to Wonton. It was very hard to let him go, we loved him so. He and Vader puppy had a special bond. Wonton Jun 27, 2007 – Jun 29, 2020 (rescued Jan 11, 2020)
