This sweet little confection weighs under five pounds. Carmel, a rather unusual Brussels Griffon mix, has a curly blond coat and slim legs.
At 3 years old, she appears to be housetrained, walks easily on leash, and was recently spayed. She has a tiny voice (not a bark), letting you know she is eager to walk or be petted.
Arriving at the shelter in April, she overcame some health issues before being pronounced healthy for adoption. Now Carmel is ready for a new home that will welcome this delicate girl. She's not yet had much interaction with other dogs but does not seem to have serious issues in this regard.
Adoption fees for Carmel are discounted 25% all week when you mention this announcement. Come see Carmel, who will melt your heart.
