China is an 8 year old Chihuahua adopted to a wonderful older woman who loved her totally. Unfortunately China loved her as much and became very protective, to the point she thought the owner's daughter and aide were hurting her when they tried to help her up. Thus, she is back with Suffolk Humane hoping someone won't care how protective she can get.
She would love to be the center of someone’s world again. She will sit on your lap all day if you let her. She doesn't have to be crated and she is housetrained. She will not tell you when she needs to go out but she is fully trained if you take her out every few hours.
She can be very temperamental when it comes to cutting her nails or putting on sweaters. She is typical for her breed, must go slowly at first but once she bonds, she sticks to you like glue!
She tolerates other dogs, but she doesn’t interact with them. She has no experience with cats. No small children due to her small size.
