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.

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.
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.
