I am already spayed and up to date with shots.
Hello, my name is Contessa and I really want a home where I am an only dog with nothing more important to do than sit in your lap or follow you around all day. I am around 14 yrs old and had a nice mommy from the time I was born. Unfortunately my mommy got very sick and I came to stay with Chihuahua Rescue. A few months ago my mommy died. I am in foster care but I don't really like some of the other dogs (especially puppies) because they are too young and rambunctious. I have had a recent dental and don't really have any health issues except I am deaf. That isn't a problem as I will never take my eyes off you. If you are interested in me you can email my foster mom firstname.lastname@example.org
