Facts about Shadow

  • Breed: Chihuahua
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
Our darling little lady Shadow is about 8 years old and is hoping to go off to a wonderful home of her own real soon. Shadow had a home for her whole life, but was turned in when her owners became unable to care for her any longer. Poor Shadow is making the best of things and making friends with so many people, but she dreams of curling up on a couch at night with someone that loves her. Shadow is much calmer and more mellow than the typical chihuahua-type breed. She is easy going, laid back, and just loves everyone. It takes her only a minute or two of knowing you before she puts her tiny paws on your legs and hopes that you'll give her some attention. She is very affectionate and sweet, and could lay in your lap all day if you let her. Please don't be put off by her graying muzzle.....Shadow still has plenty of energy and spunk and enjoys running around from time to time. She is so well behaved and she gets along fine with most dogs too. Shadow would be overjoyed if you offered her the loving home that she's hoping for. File#26687 9/2/16
