Dogs Needing Homes


Breed: Chihuahua

Age: Adult
Sex: Female
Size: Small
Description: Grace was rescued from a breeding facility and is overweight right now. It seems like Grace knows the rest of her life will be a happy one. After about a day of hanging back and lap sitting with her foster mom, she is absolutely exhuberant! First thing in the morning she is smiling, jumping, and running around. She likes to play tag, chasing around and then leaping into her bed which seems to be home base. She is very smart. Within 24 hours she had figured out the household routine and rules from watching the 3 other dogs in the house. They are laid back and she is very comfortable with them. She also knows how to hold her own when one of them or the cat irritate her. Grace is very good about using her pee pad. With the snow and cold, we have not had experience with outdoor behavior. Given her outgoing nature and good spirits, it should be only a matter of time until she loses some weight through being able to run around and not have any more babies. For anyone who wants a fun, happy little dog, Grace is a great choice!

She will be spayed, UTD on shots, micro-chipped, de-wormed, and heart worm tested before she is adopted. Her adoption fee is $300.
