Name: Coraline, like the beloved children’s book and movie.

Birthdate: Our tiny tyke was born September 28, so she's barely 2 months old.

Ethnicity: This precocious little pup is Labrador retriever mix and weighs just over 9 pounds. She craves attention and is best suited with an owner who is constantly available — or with a buddy dog or two to keep her company.

Though tiny, she’s a squiggly bundle of energy and is sure to grow up to be lively family member with a little training and a lot of patience. Coraline is quite the talker, so be prepared for some cute, canine conversations. Her weakness: snuggles and squeaky toys.

Come and get me: Coraline is available for adoption at 11 am Friday, December 14 at Citizens for Animal Protection (17555 Katy Freeway; 281-497-0591). Tell them, "Ken Hoffman sent me."
