Stella (#508-14)

Stella

Stella is our little Ori-Pei coming from New York weighing in at approximately 29 pounds. Stella loves attention and sitting in laps to get petted.  Stella doesn't mind being picked up and will gladly stay by your side.  She seems to like cats and dogs and would make a wonderful addition to any home.  

Update: (9/2014) Stella was adopted by her foster and is settling quite well in her furever home with all of her dog and cat brothers and sisters.

Lady Blue (#512-14)

Lady Blue

Lady Blue is our new regal looking blue girl.  She's currently quite nervous and very thin.  Came in to us without any vaccines, so we had to give her a full first round in mid July and will complete them in 3 weeks.  She has already been spayed but definitely needs entropic surgery. Currently she prefers the company of ladies.  

Update: (08/2014) Lady Blue (now know as IndiGo), is chilling in her furever home in York, PA

Paris (#501-14)

Paris

Paris is our new girl from Brooklyn, NY.  She is about 4 years old and she has recently come out of her shell at the kennel.  She's a bit smaller than some Shar-Pei but that doesn't stop her from enjoying her play time.  Paris really needs a family that she can get comfortable with and let her personality shine.  She will do better in a one dog home or a home with only male dogs.

Update: (08/2014) Paris met her new mom at our event at Clippers Canine Cafe! She is living the good life in Baltimore, MD. 

Minnie (#511-14)

Minnie

Minnie (formerly known as Harmony) is joining us from PG county, MD.  She's a small Shar-Pei and is adapting quite well to life at Rivermist.  She's very gentle and we are looking forward to getting to know her after she comes out of her shell.

Update: (8/2014) Minnie was adopted during our adoption event at Unleashed in Olney. Congrats, Minnie!!
