This spunky little lady is Rita, a Chihuahua mix of around 8 years old. She came to us from a local town shelter and is eager to start her new life.
Rita plays coy when meeting new people but once she gets to know you she becomes quite the cuddle bug. A perfect day for Rita would be taking walks with the ones she loves, napping, and curling up on your lap for a nice rub down. Rita is a resourceful girl who knows how to entertain herself. At mealtime she likes to play catch with herself by throwing her food up in the air and catching it. Rita is polite on leash and seems to be housebroken. She would do best in a home without young kids.
If you're family likes the outdoors and strolling through the neighborhood, come meet Rita today!
