Chilli's fosterer writes...
Hi All! My name is Chilli and I am a super friendly Chihuahua mix! And, I am an adorably handsome boy, if you don’t mind me saying so! Someone found me wandering all by myself and I ended up at the Prince George’s shelter. No one came to claim me, so I went up for adoption at the shelter, but that didn't work out either. Then the PGSPCA took me and placed me in a loving foster home with my foster brothers!
I would make an awesome friend! I have a very upbeat personality and I love to play! My foster brothers like that I have good manners and play well with them at our playtimes. Did I say that I am always ready to play??!!! Long walks and games of fetch always make me happy. Also, I know that you will love teaching me new tricks and commands. If you have other dogs, that’s fine… I definitely don’t mind sharing, but I also love one-on-one time for cuddling!
My foster mom says I am a great companion and quite the conversationalist! I am extremely smart, too! House-training and crate-training were a breeze for me and I am ready for many more opportunities to learn from you! I am looking for that special person to share my life with… If you are the right person, I definitely choose you as my best friend!
If you are interested in Chilli, consider letting us know by filling out a (no obligation) adoption application (http://www.pgspca.org/adopt/online-adoption-application/).
Chilli IS expecting to attend the next adoption show, December 24h adoption show at the Bowie PetSmart (only from 12:30-1:30), although there is always a chance that plans may need to change at the last minute.
We are an all-volunteer group and do not operate a shelter. All of our
animals are in foster homes. We are unable to place our animals outside
of the Baltimore/DC area.
