This teeny weeny little lady is named Vivian! Viv is a ~7 year old Chihuahua who weighs a whopping 6 lbs. She was found as a stray in Philadelphia and despite spending a few days at animal control, no one came looking for her! She's now living it up in foster care and is officially on the lookout for her future family!
Vivian is currently living with other dogs, both large and small, and enjoys the company of other low-key, friendly dogs like herself. She doesn't always understand when they tell her to back off and will wiggle and dance around to try to get them to play. She's also currently living with cats and LOVES to interact with them. She's living with older kids and also loves interacting with them. We think she'd do well in a home without young children because she is so small and delicate, but not because she won't love them! Vivian absolutely adores her human friends and prefers to be with them at all times. She follows her foster family around the house with playful curiosity and loves to curl up on the couch next to them. She doesn't love to be left alone and will bark for a few minutes when you leave her alone, but eventually settles down and snoozes while you're away. Vivian needs some work on her housebreaking skills and is doing much better with a consistent walk schedule. This sweetie is the perfect size to take on all of your adventures and loves to meet new people - the perfect wing woman!
Vivian received a dental cleaning and was spayed upon coming to City of Elderly Love. She also had a small mammary mass removed and biopsied which came back benign. She's healthy and ready to land her forever home!
Vivian is available for adoption through City of Elderly Love. She is spayed, vaccinated, and will be microchipped prior to going to her forever home. She is also negative for heartworm and lymes disease. Interested in meeting her?
