Posted 4:20 PM 3/9/2013 : Dumpster dog "Kimmy" adopted
TUCSON-A little dog found abandoned in a dumpster now has a place to call home.
It took a few double takes before Kimmy got adopted, but in the end an elderly couple who just lost their Yorkie decided to take her home.
Kimmy's journey has been a rough one.
Before she could end up in the arms of loving owners, she was found inside a dumpster near Country Club and Bermuda still lactating after delivering a litter of puppies.
Now ready for adoption, she's featured at the Pima County Animal Care Center's Tailwaggin Tailgate.
After getting several glances, and playing on the lawn, she's spotted by a couple.
They take a liking to Kimmy right away.
"She's cute. She's quiet. She looks like she'd be a nice companion for an older person," said Sharon Payne.
A dog lover, Payne can't wait to get Kimmy home right away.
After a bit of paperwork, and a signature here and there, Kimmy is off to Avra Valley with her new family.
