Floppy is a special loving Chihuahua (maybe some Chiweenie if you check out her long spine.) She has Chi tendencies (possessive of her space, loves cuddling - including carrying her about, rides on lap - & soaking up rays of sunshine.) She accommodates other dogs in the home & plays well with children, but any adoptive home with children would need to be aware of her fragile status. Her favorite activity is a walk on a leash; she prances in the lead if she is with another dog.
Floppy has undergone gallbladder surgery & will need a special canned diet & some medications, probably for life. Her left hind leg exhibits some dysplasia characteristics but it does not slow her down at this time.
While Floppy has some special needs, she more than makes up for them as a bundle of total, absolute devotion.
Adoption fee includes spay/neuter, microchip and rabies and other core vaccinations.
