Mara was abandoned at the dog park. Pregnant, she had five puppies in foster care. They are weaned so the brave Chi-weenie mom is ready to move on. Mara is good with kids, cats, and dogs. About 18 months of age, she's smaller than a dachshund and longer than a Chihuahua - just right for lap sitting or car rides. For adoption, call El Dorado County Animal Services at 530-573-7925. For spay-neuter assistance or other support, call the Lake Tahoe Humane Society and Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals at 530-542-2857.
