It has been traumatic for ChiChi to lose her family and at first she seemed to be looking for them in every person who walked by. But in a week she settled into her foster home. She enjoys the company of her foster brother Tonka and has already bonded to her foster parents.
ChiChi is a pleasure to have in the home. She is house-trained, doesn't chew and doesn't bark much. She is not needy, but will follow you around and lay at your feet. She doesn't appear to have had much formal training and doesn't seem to know commands. We have noticed she is more responsive to Spanish than English.
ChiChi is friendly toward other dogs and will interact nicely with them. However, she is not good with cats and should not be in a home with them.
ChiChi will be so happy to have a family again, this time one that will love and keep her forever. We believe that considering her history, it may take a week or two for her to feel permanently "at home" in a new environment.
