Poor Angelica, all six pounds of her, needs surgery to remove mammary tumors, get spayed and remove some very painful teeth. Seniors like Angelica are very costly for our rescue because of their extra medical needs but we never turn them away. In fact, her owner couldn't care for her so she sent her off to a shelter. The shelter couldn't care fro her either so they contacted DRNA because we have a reputation for taking in some very tough cases. Once we address all of Angelica's medical needs, she'll be ready for adoption. Angelica is a hoot. Nothing fazes her! She needs an adopter who can be home for her because Angelica hates to be in a crate and has accidents if left alone too long. She is fine with older or calmer dogs though she has initiated some play with our younger dogs. Her back legs are a bit stiff from a prior back injury but nothing stops this girl. The world is Angelica's oyster! She is small but mighty. She is always happy when you come home. Her dream home has a retired adopter, securely fenced yard, small senior dog buddy, no cats, no children and no big dogs. ****Applicant must be willing to drive to Ellicott City, Maryland (10 miles south of Baltimore) to meet and adopt Angelica.****
