Meet the mama! We believe Mama Moira to be a Chihuahua/Shih-tzu mix. She weighed 18 pounds just prior to delivery. She weighed 11 pounds after she delivered 8 babies. We do NOT know who the dad was. Moira was facing euthanasia at the OKC animal shelter. (Pregnant dogs can not be adopted out.) You may visit our FACEBOOK PAGE and scroll through the posts to see several videos of the babies. You may also search her hashtag on our FB page to pull up all of their posts. #MamaMoira

This 9 week old, 4 pound, floof-nugget is just about the sweetest, happiest, snuggliest, loviest little girl out there, folks! She is the spitting image of her mama, and if she grows up to be half as sweet as Moira, man! This girl will be FABULOUS! Ariel is smart, engaged, curious, playful, resourceful, and content. She enjoys all things people, especially their hands that give lovies, and their feet for schnacks! She’s a toy junkie, and loves allllll the new toys! She’s often the first to notice a new toy in the pile, and is quick to lay claim. Of course, she shares well and enjoys it when her siblings join in the play!
All of the kiddos in this litter are doing very well with potty pad training, and eagerly use the doggy door, (even when they aren’t supposed to!) Keep in mind that these are new little babies, and they will require potty training, obedience training, and must be supervised, both inside and outside of the home. None of them are big enough or brave enough to attempt to climb or decend the stairs yet. They are pen trained and sleep through the night, though that may change when they don’t have their siblings to snuggle with. We STRONGLY suggest that adopters invest in a, “Heartbeat Dog” to help them through the lonely nights. ALL of these puppies would do very well to have another friendly pooch in the home to play with and learn from. Preference will be given to loving, responsible homes with a friendly pal for them to hang out with.
KNOWN HISTORY – These babies were born in rescue, to Mama Moira, via emergency cesarean on 10/4/22. They have been raised in a safe, loving foster home, and have been loved and doted on daily. They are all well socialized, and spoiled appropriately. They have only ever been exposed to positive reinforcement and these great foundations must continue in their forever homes.
Won’t you please consider adding this precious, sweet, loving little girl to your family? If you are not quite ready to add a new member to your family, won’t you please #SHARE our adoptable kiddos on social media? You never know when your share is the share that will bring them home.
Ariel’s adoption fee is $575. Her adoption fee includes spay, microchip with free lifetime registration, age appropriate vaccinations and dewormers. She will come home with a hobo bag of things to help her get started in her new furever home. You can apply to welcome her into your family by completing an adoption application below.
