"Saria" is a 3 yr. old spayed female Chihuahua.   She was surrendered to the shelter because her previous owner could no longer care for her.  She was so terrified at the shelter and stood no chance there.  She was a special request from the shelter staff for us to rescue.  So on October 1st (2015) she joined us here at the ranch.  We allowed her to slowly adapt and in no time she was playing and was right at home!  She is a very nice girl and has an awesome temperament!  She is such a sweetie and will be a great friend to someone.  She is current on all her vaccines, including rabies, is microchipped, and  her adoption fee is $250.
