Lil' Debbie the Dog needs a home

If you are interested in adopting an ARPO pet, please visit our website, for details about our fees and process, and to complete our Pre-Qualification Form.   ARPO limits adoptions to within 50 miles of Indianapolis.  We do not have a shelter; all pets are in volunteer foster homes. 

Hi there. I’m Lil' Debbie. My foster folks named me Lil' Debbie because I’m so sweet that it makes them say that I’m going to be a real treat in someone’s life!  At best guess I'm a cattle dog mix with some major terrier personality! I'm about 5 years old we think, and I weigh a whopping 35 lbs.

I was originally found in my foster folks’ neighborhood. I really didn’t feel very good. I was hungry, and my flea collar was so tight it rubbed my neck raw. It wasn’t working anyway, because I was covered in fleas and my legs and ears were bare from scratching them so much. My foster folks took me in to take care of me.  My foster folks say I’m really sweet, affectionate, and super smart.  I basically go along with whatever. I just want to be a good little girl, and get belly rubs and treats. I really like to take walks, go hiking, get lots of exercise and go on car rides too. I love giving kisses in return for being treated so nice!

I get along with
other dogs and prefer
submissive males
.  I like being the 'top dog' and wouldn't mind being an only dog either! My exposure to cats has been minimal, but I do like to chase them.  I get very excited in public and tend to bark at other dogs, but I'm just announcing to the world my presence!  

My adoption fee is $150 and I've been spayed, had all of my vaccines, been checked over and treated by a doctor and have a microchip so I'll never be lost and alone again!
