From the Foster: Sarafina (Fi for short), is a sassy little cuddle bug. She's a typical chihuahua in that she likes to be the boss. She's pretty good with my very submissive chihuahua but is confrontational with other dogs, especially larger dogs. She would be great as an only dog but it isn't necessary. No idea on cats. Fi would be ok with respectful kids but probably wouldn't do well with toddler types. She ADORES attention and wants nothing more than to walk all day and snuggle next to you at night :) She's potty trained with regular let outs. She has a habit of sneakily peeing when you leave the room but is fine if she's out regularly (every 3ish hours when you're home, nothing excessive) and you keep an eye on her. Zero issues with barking, separation anxiety or inappropriate chewing. I leave her gated (not kenneled) for a work day. She is ok left free to roam when I am not gone long. Fi does need regular walks but definitely doesn't go nuts if we don't walk for one day. Overall is a pretty chill dog just looking for love!
All dogs are in individual foster homes throughout the Twin Cities.
