Mia cried as she watched her best friend and previous owner walk out of the Lancaster Animal Shelter in California on Thursday; as she was no longer wanted to be part of the only family she had ever known. How does anyone explain to a six-year-old Yorkshire terrier that her life may soon be over? How does anyone explain to a dog that her loyalty doesn’t count? A shelter volunteer tells the little dog’s sad story:
“I met Mia’s previous owner at the shelter; he had returned for her best friend Pepper. Mia watched and cried as her previous owner walked out of the shelter without her. He told me a family member surrendered her because she worked long hours and could not care for her. He said she gets along with dogs and cats, and is a little protective of her food.”

I have been at the Lancaster Animal Care Center since May 17, 2017. I am available on May 17, 2017. You can visit me at my temporary home at L335. The staff/volunteers here at the animal care center have found that I spend most of my time indoors. I seem to be good with small children. I am house trained. I am good on a leash. I seem to get along well with dogs and cats.” A Facebook page for this dog can be followed here. When inquiring about Mia, make sure to reference A5067363.
