Kids: Mona is amazing with kids of all ages!

Dogs and cats: Loves both but would do best with a submissive doggie brother or sister.

Health issues: None.

Her story: Mona Lisa and her 12 puppies were taken to Fulton County Animal Control after a drug raid on a property where she had been used as a breeding dog, with the profits from the sales of her puppies used to buy drugs. When she was found, she was emaciated from trying to keep her babies alive and provide enough milk for them to survive. Despite her sad beginnings, Mona is a sweet, gentle girl with a heart full of love.

Her ideal forever home: Mona would love a special someone or family who would let her be with them as much as possible, sleep in the people bed, and enjoy being the cuddly lap dog she is. She would be happy with any amount of activity as long as she can play fetch and go on regular walks.
