Adopt this Pet: Alona

This tiny dog has a big heart

Tired of being alone? Consider adopting this funny little dog named Alona. This 10-year-old dachshund mix is the new office dog at the Hilton Head Humane Association and the staff there already loves her to pieces. “She is so sweet and so funny to watch,” one team member reported. “She loves to snuggle right into your lap!” Alona spends most of her time with one ear up and one ear down. You might say she keeps an ear to the ground. She weighs just 13 pounds and is very low maintenance (no doggie odor, will not need to be bathed often, does not shed excessively). Best of all, she packs a whole lot of personality into her tiny little body. Schedule a visit today!
