Zip is a mix between miniature pinscher and terrier and is about 4 years old. He used to live with children, but isn’t a big fan, so he would prefer a home with teenagers or just adults. He seems to be OK with other dogs and might even do well with a dog-friendly cat.

While a little shy at first, she warms up quickly, and will soon find a spot on your lap if you let her. Luna knows some commands (in Spanish) but is quickly picking up English here at the shelter.
