This little girl was found roaming the streets of Norwalk (yes, in the parking lot of a Porsche dealership!) by one of our amazing volunteers who pulled her to safety and rescued her from a dangerous and scary situation of fending for herself. She is now soaking up love in a warm, safe foster home and learning manners and doggie etiquette. She is a Jack Russell/Chihuahua mix, with a definite Jack Russell personality...extremely intelligent with a little dash of stubborn and a lot of spunk! Porscha has integrated nicely into her foster-pack of small to medium dogs. She loves to play with her toys and will need consistent exercise (she would probably make a great agility dog...she is very athletic and fast and has a lot of energy!) Each day she is warming up more and more as she settles into a routine .... after she knows she can trust you, she will want to snuggle in your lap or next to you on the sofa.
She is about 1 year old, spayed, up-to-date on vaccines and ready to find her forever home. She would do best in a home with another dog for companionship, kids over 10 that are considerate, and consistent pack-leadership. She is a bit excited by cats, so most likely she should be in a cat-free environment.
If Porscha sounds like a great fit for your family, we would love to arrange a meet and greet!
