Velveeta is a sweet but shy chihuahua mix who warms up quickly and loves to snuggle in your lap. She and her sister Vivian were found all by themselves in an abandoned car in San Francisco.  Some neighborhood kids were feeding them until they were picked up by the ACC.  Poor girls! Vivian has since been adopted, but Velveeta is still awaiting her forever home.  Velveeta loves to burrow in blankets and is affectionate but never overly needy. We don't know why this little girl gets passed up - she is truly a PERFECT dog: gets along with all people, dogs and cats, potty trained, great on leash, quiet, and does the cutest little happy dance when you come home! If you'd like to meet this sweet, gentle soul, please fill out an application at
