Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Chihuahua (medium coat)
Weight: 12.9 lbs
Height: 14 in
Estimated Birthdate: 2/5/2016
Fence Needed: Yes
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Reason for being in rescue: hoard case Gaston County
Special Needs: Sissy is spayed, up to date on all vaccines, and heartworm negative. Sissy had a dental on 3/3/2021. She lost 1 tooth.
What kind of home would be best for me: Whoever adopts Sissy will have to be very experienced with Chihuahuas and experienced with dogs who have not had the best life. Sissy may never be the type of dog that you can take to multiple places in public and get loved on by many people she's not familiar with. We believe Sissy wants her one person and her one person only. She requires a home with another doggie sibling she can follow around and learn how to be a pet. Sissy is not suited for a home with children or lots of visitors.
What is my personality like: Sissy arrived in rescue as part of a hoarding case. She has known life living as part of a pack, but with limited human interaction. Sissy is a very sharp girl who has been warming up a little bit more each day. When she first arrived we were not able to touch her at all but now she will take treats from her caregiver's hand and will allow her caretiver to pet her head.
Sissy has been through a lot in her little life and she is very wary of people, but you can tell that she’s very interested and wants to become a loving pet. Sissy is not yappy, she’s very quiet, she’s clean in her crate, she’s excited for meal time and she loves treats. She IS A FLIGHT RISK so we suggest trailing a leash at least the first few weeks until she’s used to her new house. Her adopted will need to take her straight home with no stops.
Sissy has so much potential. She is young and curious and is making progress each day in rescue with trusting people. We cannot wait to see how she blossoms in a home with an experienced owner who focuses on her.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Very shy
Tips and Tidbits: Sissy's estimated birthday is 2/5/2016
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.
