My Story

Date into Rescue: 01/18/20

Reason for being in rescue: puppy mill bust

Special Needs: Betty has nursed her last litter of puppies. She has been spayed, had a dental polishing on 5/29/20, and is ready for her forever home.

What kind of home would be best for me: We are seeking a home with an experienced dog owner and someone who is home more than they're away. Betty needs an experienced chihuahua owner. She is not for a first time dog owner. She is not for a home with children. She needs someone that understands her breed and has the patience to help her continue to learn what it means to be a pet.  She is much better with male dogs - of any size.  

What is my personality like: Betty came to CPR from a puppy mill bust in Laurens, SC.  She was pregnant and gave birth to one baby girl the second day she was here, but unfortunately her pup was born with a birth defect and did not make it. Betty stepped up to nurse another litter of orphaned pups. It is clear that all Betty has known is being a mom.

Betty is very timid at first, but once you gain her trust she is all yours. Most of her life has been spent as a breeding dog, which means limited socialization and human interaction. Betty is a classic chihuahua - feisty, sometimes moody, but incredibly loyal. She likes things on her terms. Betty enjoys sitting in a lap but would be equally happy sitting beside you on the couch. She is content to sleep in a dog bed at night. She has impeccable house manners in her foster home.

Betty is a wonderful dog. She would be great for quiet retirees looking for a dog to share their heart with. She does not require a ton of exercise and really just wants a quiet life.

How do I act when I first meet new people:  Timid and shy at first.

Tips and Tidbits: Betty's estimated birthday is 1/15/2012.

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.

Potential Adopters

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.

Thank you for considering CPR!
