Dogs Needing Homes


Breed: Chihuahua

Age: Adult
Sex: Female
Size: Small
Description: Foster Mom Says: "This adorable, tiny, 5 year old female chihuahua needs a strong personality to take her on or she will run your house. She takes a while to warm up to someone new, and will bite if grabbed at. But once she does warm up she's very sweet and affectionate and wags her entire body to get you to pet her. She just needs to be left alone for a while at first so she can check you out from a far. She loves to have a lot of attention. She will not let you clip her nails without a fight so you will need your vets help to have this done. She likes being bathed and loves being brushed. She walks well on a leash. Plays with toys and likes chewing on raw hide. I'm not sure on the potty training yet as I have only had her for a short while, but she is kennel trained and the previous owner says she's puppy pad trained but I haven't seen this yet. I think if you pay attention to her signals and take her out often she will be fine. She cannot go to a home with small children and immature young adults because of her small size and biting when being grabbed at."
