Tamara (her original name) is a 4-5 yr old female chihuahua. After her human mom died, her dad turned her over to a local shelter. Now, while that is pitiful, I will say that she has went through lots of changes while in our care. From what I understand, it was difficult for him to leave her. I started fostering her back in April 2016, a day or so after she was left. She is your typical chihuahua, and would be great for someone that has experience with the breed. It took her several weeks to feel comfortable here and I'm sure it'll be the same when she's adopted. She's completely an indoor girl. She currently sleeps with us, and not crated. She uses puppy pads. Since acquiring her, she has adapted to wearing a collar and is fine walking on a leash. She does fine having run of the house while we are at work.
Friends of Rescue is a certified 501(c)(3) organization formed in 2009, consisting of volunteers who are devoted to saving shelter animals that are in danger of euthanasia. Southern shelters have a constant overflow of dogs and cats, little funding, and limited space. Once the animals arrive at the shelter, they have very little time. It is our goal to help save these adoptable animals and find loving individuals/families who will provide committed, FORever homes. We are NOT professional trainers or animal behaviorists; simply volunteers who are trying to save these animals from euthanasia. Each animal in our program is in a foster home and receives all age-appropriate vetting while in our care.
