Given the winter weather, we asked Countryside Humane Society whether they had any polar bears available for adoption.
Alas, no. But they do have Eliza, a 1-year-old Pekingese and Chihuahua mix.
Eliza is a white and beige female, who's a little shy at the shelter, what with all the noise and activity. But she warms up quickly when taken out of the kennel area.
She's a small dog and would do best with a family with teen-age children. Both of the breeds she is mixed with can act like a large dog in a very small body; they can be bold at times, and submissive at other times. But Eliza is a real snuggler who only needs to know you a few minutes to show this side of her.
Come meet Eliza at the Countryside Humane Society, 2706 Chicory Road, or call (262) 554-6699.
