Princess Leia is a 4 year old Maltese-Yorkie (Morkie) Terrier mix who weighs about 8 lbs. She's a petite and adorable little gal who's super friendly once she's established that you're good people. She'll play coy and be a bit shy at first but then she's all love! She's a total cuddle bug. Leia has a non-shedding coat that makes her an option for those with allergies. She will require regular grooming and we will be looking for families with a groomer lined up.

Here are notes from Leia's foster mom:

"Leia is such a loving dog. She loves snuggles and pets and will give so much love for a place in your heart. She will kiss you as long as possible if you let her... She loves to play short games of tug o' war and likes to catch and shake her soft rag toy.

She is working so hard on potty training and on a schedule does beautifully. She is so smart and eager to please. She loves to be with people but is fine on her own while you are away at work - but if her Mom or Dad worked from home or could take her to work, that would work, too.

She loves snuggling on chairs and sofas and is responding so well to positive reinforcement. She has easily learned to sit for rewards and is food and positive word motivated. She is easy to train and eager to please and be a loving and devoted member of the family.

She is GREAT with kids.

She's such a sweet, sweet little dog..."

Leia gets along well with other dogs and is also an option for a home with cats. She is a dog that may be an option for those who have experience but maybe not recent. If there are children in the home, they need to be over the age of 8.

**Not all of our dogs go to each adoption event. We want to make sure if you are interested in a dog that we have the dog at adoptions but that can only happen if you fill out an application ahead of time and are pre-approved. (Generally this must happen prior to the weekend)

**If you are wanting to submit an application within 24 hours of an event, please print off the application and bring with you as well as submitting it. You may still submit it and if time and volunteers permit, we will contact you. Most applications submitted the weekend of adoptions are not responded to until after the adoption weekend.
