Hello! My name is Tia and I’m a spayed, 10 lbs., cream/beige colored, 2-4 year old female Chihuahua. I was found as a stray roaming the streets of Anaheim, very afraid, skinny and dehydrated, but lucky for me the good people of ICARE Dog Rescue saved me! I’m now enjoying a loving and relaxing home with my foster family and learning to be less fearful of people, sounds, and things. I’m also learning to use pee-pee pads as I currently live in a small apartment. My foster family has crate trained me, so at night time I sleep in my little crate.
Lucky for my future forever family, I’m not your typical Chihuahua. I don’t bark, yap or get snippy with people or dogs. I’m very mellow and easy going. I’m like a velcro dog, I love to be right next to you as if I was attached to your hip. If you’re on the couch, sleeping or cooking, I want to be right next to you! I love to burrow and feel your skin touch mine. And of course I love massages and belly rubs!
Since I was a stray with no family or home before coming to ICARE Dog Rescue I had to fend for myself and lived a fearful life. I’m working on becoming more confident so that I am not as easily spooked by sights and sounds. I would do well in a home with older respectful children (ages 10 and above) or an all adult home. I get along with other dogs, but just need time to acclimate. So if you already have a furry family member, I’m sure we would get along with the proper introduction, time and gentle treatment.
I’m truly a fantastic dog, I have proven to be eager and smart. I listen to my foster mommy when she gives me direction, even though I have no prior training. I’ve even learned that the master bedroom is off limits and won’t enter. I would love for you to train and teach me so I can show you how eager I am!
Thanks for stopping by and I can’t wait to meet you so we can snuggle.
