Wednesday's puppy of the day: Aquata

Aquata is a 6-year-old Chihuahua with a big personality for such a pipsqueak. This little girl needs some XTLC due to a heart murmur. Aquata came from a puppy mill where she didn't get the love and care she truly deserves. Because of this, she is very timid and cautious around new people. Aquata would be best suited for a quiet home with older children who can show her kindness and respect. For more information, contact the North Shore Animal League at (516) 883-7900, EXT. 272.
