Mini (<= 12 lbs.)

We are happy to announce that after fostering Linus, we will now be adopting him. The time he has spent here he some how worked his charm and hooked us. When I told my wife that we are having a meet and greet she instantly thought that we could be losing a very charismatic, loving, and funny character. She was relieved, as was I, and discussed our plans to keep him. We knew he could make any family complete like all fosters but something about Linus just drew us in. He loves to see us cook, sit on the couch and watch TV, play outside with Max (Mini Dachshund) and Chance (Jack Russel) and just hang outwith all of us. We are going to keep his name since he is use to us calling him Mr. Van Pelt, sounds a little distinguished, and are very happy to have a new addition to our home.
