Facts about Tessa

  • Breed: Chihuahua Mix
  • Color: Tricolor (Tan/Brown & Black & White)
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
Tessa is the kind of little dog that seems to be propelled by her wagging tail. She will welcome you home with a fervor that warms your heart. Tessa came to the Animal Advocacy from an LA Shelter where her time was up.

She is 10 pounds around 6 years old. Tessa is crate trained and seems house trained. She will even wait politely by the door until you let her out. She isn’t quite as polite about waiting to come back in.

Tessa is good with other dogs in her foster home but we are not sure on cats. She loves to sit by/on you and occasionally takes a moment to turn her head and gaze lovingly into your eyes. This is a delightful companion for some lucky humans.

Tessa has been spayed, current on vaccinations, tested negative for heartworm and also micro chipped. She also had a dental with extractions.
