Pimenta [ADOPTED SEPTEMBER 29] is a petite, 18 month old (according to the shelter, but I think two or three), sweet, black female who is spayed, heartworm tested, updated on shots, microchipped and ready for a new home. She came to us from a shelter in Illinois where she was turned in by a family who negected her badly. That was her lucky day!! She appears to be good with adults, children and other dogs. She is cute as a bug's ear but acts like she has never been groomed before (fearful but not trying to bite) and by the looks of her coat when she came to us, that may well be the case. She will make someone a wonderful companion.
