We present new multi-configuration VLA HI spectral line imaging of the dwarf galaxies AGC 198691 (hereafter, Leoncino) and UGC 5186. Leoncino is one of 82 galaxies in the "Survey of HI in Extremely Low-mass Dwarfs" ("SHIELD"), a multi-wavelength investigation of low-mass galaxies that were cataloged by the Arecibo Legacy Fast ALFA (ALFALFA) survey. Leoncino is one of the lowest metallicity galaxies known in the local universe (Hirschauer et al. 2016). A single pointing with the VLA allows us to study the HI morphology and dynamics of both galaxies simultaneously. We present HI images at a variety of angular resolutions in order to explore both the global and the resolved properties of the neutral ISM.
