I don’t know why my former owners abandoned me, but they left me tied to a stranger’s fence. I was very scared, covered in fleas, and so skinny that my ribs were showing. A caring neighbor took me in got me cleaned up and has made sure I’m safe and healthy!
I’m a Chihuahua mix, possibly with beagle or terrier. I’m not sure how old I am, but the vet thinks I’m between 1-2 years old. I’ve recently had my shots and been neutered (groan!), but thankfully I’m also heartworm negative. I adapt well to new social situations because I just want to play. Seriously, I could play all day long! That’s why my foster family named me “Dizzy”.
I might be a little challenging sometimes, just because I have so much energy. What can I say, I’m just so happy someone took me in and showed me love, and playing is my way of giving love back. But because of this, I need a family who is patient. It would also be great to have another dog for a buddy. I’m also a good jumper for a little dude. It’s easy for me to scale a 4-foot chain link fence, when something interesting catches my eye. Did someone say, “squirrel”? For this reason, I need to be an inside dog, or maybe an outside dog if you have a tall fenced backyard.
But even as playful as I am, I need someone to cuddle with when I get tired. I like to burrow under the sheets, and shower you sweet kisses until I drift off to sleep.
If you feel your home might be the right place for such a great dog - the place to start is with the adoption application found at www.dfwrescueme.org/adopt. Once submitted, the foster will contact you promptly to tell you more and to arrange a time to meet!
The adoption fee for all of our dogs is $250.00, which includes their vaccinations and spay/neuter.
Dizzy is participating in the DFW Rescue Me Guest Dog Program, so ongoing care and custody are provided by their foster, not by DFWRM.
