Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Chihuahua (medium coat)
Weight: 7.1 lbs
Height: 12 in
Estimated Birthdate: 3/25/2018
Fence Needed: No
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Reason for being in rescue: Hoarder case Anderson
Special Needs: Shyla is spayed, up to date on vaccines, and heartworm negative. On 4/28/2021 she had a dental and lost 1 tooth. Shyla is currently battling a skin infection, likely from the poor living conditions in which she was found.
What kind of home would be best for me: Shyla would love a patient, gentle family with a quiet life and not a lot of visitors or traveling around town. Because she is so reserved, we do not suggest a home with children. She is definitely under socialized and will need someone willing to give her her space until she trusts them. Shyla requires a home with another confident dog that will teach and guide her. She is not for a first time dog owner.
What is my personality like: Shyla arrived in rescue as part of a hoarding case. As you may expect, she is very comfortable with dogs and very timid around humans. Shyla's name describes this sweet soul. She is definitely very shy, but she has lots of potential! She follows all the other dogs at the farm waiting for their next move before she proceeds.
Shyla gets along with everyone. Big or small, she is most confident in the company of other dogs and looks to them for guidance. Shyla enjoys being held by her caregivers that she trusts. She enjoys sunbathing and cuddling in her bed. Overall when we look at Miss Shyla we see a girl longing for the perfect home willing to give her a chance at being the perfect companion.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Shy, timid.
Tips and Tidbits: Shyla's estimated birthday is 3/25/2018
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.
