Piccolo, also known as Pickle, is a sassy 10-12 yr old chihuahua. She weighs in at a whopping 3lbs, but don't let her size fool you, she is full of personality and spunk. She is cat and small dog friendly but would prefer to be the only dog in the house because she wants everything to be about her. Piccolo would do best in a home without young children as well. She had a rough start, but is making up for it now. Pickle is a special girl, she will need a special home that can care for her medical and emotional needs. She has an enlarged heart which means her stress levels need to stay low. She only has two teeth, both of which need to be removed, which means she can only eat soft food and occasionally needs to be hand fed. Pickle loves to sleep in the bed with her person and is house trained, although she does occasionally have issues with stairs. She is a lap baby and wants to be close to her people, she follows you everywhere and makes sure you don't forget her. She is a sweet little baby who is as devoted as they come.

Some highly adoptable dogs who will find a forever home quickly, have a higher adoption fee. These dogs leave a financial legacy for the other animals in our care who may need extensive medical care or more time to find a loving home.
Return Policy: Foster homes save many lives, and as soon as one gets adopted, they often get another one. So spaces fill up fast! If you wish to return your adopted dog, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and be prepared to bring him/her to adoption events until a forever home is found. In some cases their previous foster can take them back. They cannot be given away, sold, or turned in to another agency. You are responsible for keeping the dog and bringing him/her to adoption events until we find a suitable home to adopt them.
