Facts about Olive

  • Breed: Chihuahua
  • Color: Black
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
Olive is a senior dog who came into the CRT program after being hit by a car. She has recovered from those injuries other than an occasional skip in her stride. She weighs about 6 lbs, is deaf and is beginning to lose her eyesight. Quite a sweetheart, she loves to lie beside you and nap, truly a couch potato! She is fine with other dogs, but doesn't interact with them much, preferring to stay to herself.

She walks well on a leash and travels in a crate with no objections. She is not completely house broken though does well if walked frequently. Her foster confines her in a 5 foot pen at night and when away from home, putting down pee pads. She may be able to learn to go to a pee pad when free in the house, however she does not seem to mind the smaller pen when needed.

Olive has not been around children and would probably do best in a home without them. She would be a great dog for a retired person or someone who works from home. She does seem to wander back and forth in her foster's home – perhaps she is making sure she knows where everything is, due to her limited eyesight.
