Pearl is an 8 year old, 4lb snowy white Chihuahua with just a frosting of black fur!
Pearl is extremely timid around humans and does not like to be picked up or petted on the head. We don't know her history but she does have many of the behvioral traits of a puppy mill dog that has been undersocialized with people. However with time she will follow her person around and once she trusts you, she will take treats very gently from your hand! Pearl loves the company of other dogs and we would ideally like to find her a home with another confident pup she can learn from. Pearl is pee pad trained but may forget her manners under times of stress so please be patient!
Pearl was rescued in LA as part of our Waggy West rescue mission to bring At Risk dogs, one by one to NYC for adoption! We are always looking for volunteer chaperones to bring at risk dogs like her with them on their next LA-NYC flight, we pay the dog's ticket and provide a carrier! Email email@example.com if you can help!
