Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Chihuahua (short coat)
Weight: 6.2 lbs
Height: 8 in
Estimated Birthdate: 4/11/2016
Fence Needed: Absolutely - she needs the security of a fenced in area. You can not trust her at all at first and she does not know how to walk on a leash. It does not have to be a large area, a securely fenced patio or deck for potty business would be fine.
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Date into rescue: 3/11/2018
Reason for being in rescue? Rescue Transfer, puppy mill
Special Needs?Tiana is a puppy mill survivor. She does NOT know how to be a pet. She needs someone to teach her
What kind of home would be best for me? We are seeking a quiet, patient home with an experienced dog owner and someone who is home more than they're away. Tiana must have a confident companion dog in her home to show her what a true pet acts like. Absolutely no children under 18 years of age.
What is my personality like? This tiny chihuahua has been through so much in her short life and it shows. She was originally from a puppy mill, which explains her timid behavior. Tiana will need a home with a special person that has a soft spot for dogs like her. She will need to be taught how to be a part of your family and she will also need to learn to trust. Tiana will come up to you and sniff your fingers, but as soon as you reach towards her she backs away. She has also been known to be a fear bitter.. but only because she is afraid when you go to pick her up. Tiana came to us with a lot of trust issues but with the right people she has the potential to flourish.
How do I act when I meet new people? Timid
Tips and Tidbits:
House trained? Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.
Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
