Adoption Donation $ 450
Located: in New England
Age: 2 years
Weight: 9 lbs
Roxie is a sweet little chihuahua mix with very long legs (perhaps some Italian greyhound?). She was an owner release rescued from a TX shelter by one of our Louisiana Rescue partners. Roxie was very pregnant and soon welcomed 5 puppies who have since been weaned. She is now ready for a home of her own. She is estimated to be around 2 years old and weighs 9 lbs. She is heartworm negative, UTD on immunizations, and spayed.
Roxie loves her people and bonds quickly to her person/family. She is however very nervous and perhaps a little fearful about meeting new people because she gets so attached. She will need a patient adopter that understands she will need a few days to adjust before she will make you her "special person". Once she feels comfortable she is very playful and enjoys playing with other small dogs. She is good with cats too. She loves to run with those tiny long legs and would do best with a fenced in yard.
She is housetrained/pee pad trained. Although she will go outside she doesn't like to get her feet wet and prefers to use a pee pad inside. She is crated trained and has been sleeping in one at night. She is a great little dog that will make someone a wonderful companion!
