If Amy could talk, she would say this: “Hi my new mommy/daddy, I am so happy & grateful to have you in my life. I will give you all of my love every day for having me and taking care of me. I appreciate your patience with me because I get to be a little bit scared at first as not everyone has always been so nice to me. As soon as I know that you won’t hurt me, I am not leaving your side and my big eyes will be looking up to only you. I just can’t wait to be snuggled and held in your lap.”
Amy is a 10-year old healthy, smart & active Chihuahua that was nearly euthanized in Miami and luckily rescued by JBAR in 2014.
She behaves like a real lady – house-trained waiting for people to let her out, car-trained (driver opens the door, Princess Amy hops up on her pillow where she nicely sits excited to find out the destination), couch-trained where she loves to relax on the blanket and bed-trained, either sleeping by your bedside in her dog bed or if allowed, she is ecstatic to get some cuddles in bed.
She is very calm and quiet, she hardly barks only as a warning if she senses something strange in her territory. She enjoys going out for a walk and it is very easy to be outside with her, even around other people or dogs as she doesn’t pay attention to either. The advantage of her timid personality with most people other than her chosen human is that she doesn’t let strangers to get close to her, however she is not aggressive, and she just charmingly keeps on walking. She usually just passes by other dogs or stops for a minute to exchange some sniffing but when she is called, she doesn’t hesitate to run to her beloved owner as she doesn’t want to be left behind.
Truly wonderful, low-maintenance, well-behaved & extraordinary loving Chi with amazing personality best suited for one or two people that will provide the love and peace she deserves.
