Mona the Corgi, Chihuahua Mix

Visit to read about Mona. If you can’t access that page, have a look below:

Mona is one of those little unusual dogs that you grow to appreciate more with each passing day. She is a short legged, bob tailed stocky wee dog.

Mona was living in an Alabama shelter when a RGDR volunteer snagged her and brought her home from vacation! Mona made herself right at home and seems to have a fond memory of being a house pet. She loves her snuggle time and will kick back with feet up in the air and belly up for a nap. We think she is adorable.

Mona tested LIGHT heartworm positive and we’d like to keep her on heartgard, find her best permanent placement and retest her at six months and one year before doing full blown heartworm treatment.

Mona is:

  • A small (11#) female dog
  • About 1-2 years old
  • Walks well on leash
  • Up-to-date on shots
  • Light heartworm positive
  • Spayed
  • Housetrained


If you are interested in adopting, have a look at our adoption website, read the online adoption agreement, complete the online adoption application, and submit it.

You may also access a downloadable copy of our adoption application that you can fill out on your computer or by hand (printable adoption application in Microsoft Word 2003 or Acrobat PDF).

If you are unable to adopt at this time, you may sponsor the care of this pet.

We adopt dogs from Memphis Animal Shelter when we can. The shelter has an 83% euthanasia rate, one of the highest in the country. Unfortunately, any dog coming from Memphis Animal Shelter, and most other shelters for that matter, will have been in contact with contagious illness. Even though the dogs have been in foster care and appear to be in good health, they may become stressed when changing environments and exhibit signs and symptoms of illness. If you have other pets, they need to be up to date on vaccines before bringing a shelter dog into your home. We will take the adopted animal back, but we are not responsible for your other animal’s vet care. We always disclose where the dogs have come from. Please ask for any information about the dogs and exercise due caution if you have immunocompromised animals.
