I am a 7 year old long-hair Chihuahua. I weigh 16.5 pounds and have lived with my Mom since I was 11 weeks old! I love her SO much, but I don’t love kids and Mom just told me she is pregnant. We all think it would be best if I could find a new home, but I’m scared no one will want me. My favorite things are snuggling next to Mom, going on walks, and napping! I do like to play with toys sometimes too!

Most of the time I am a good dog: I sit on command, lay down, roll over and even high-five! I’m sorry to say that sometimes my Chihuahua attitude comes out and that I have bitten Mom before when I was scared. I am always sorry and will give kisses to say I am sorry!

I developed Type 1 Diabetes two months ago. Mom gives me 2 shots of insulin each day since my pancreas doesn’t do its job. I have to eat special food; it’s not very tasty but if you pour some chicken broth on it, I’ll eat it right up!

Mom and I have lived in apartments most of my life, so I don’t mind if you don’t have a yard – as long as you take me for walks, I’ll be a very happy puppy. There are a few other dogs that I like, but not many. I’d prefer to be the only pet in the house!

Do you think we would be a good match? I know I’m not perfect, and come with some special needs, but I have a lot of life still to live. I really don’t want mom to have to worry when her baby arrives, but I also really want someone who will keep loving me as much as mom does.

About Out Of The Woods Animal Rescue of Arkansas

About Our Rescue Group...

OOTW helps people who help animals. We primarily assist folks who take in stray or abandoned animals and offer them assistance with discounted veterinarian services and assist with placement in adoptive homes. We promote the spaying and neutering of all pets. For more information, go to our website, www.ootwrescue.org

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do not have a shelter. Our pets are being cared for in foster homes. We allow prospective adopters to meet the pet by appointment after we have approved the home to adopt and feel that we have a good match.

Our Adoption Process...

We ask that an adopton application be filled out and returned to help us make the best match possible for the rescued pet and for the adoptive home.

Our adoption fee is $150.00 We do add transportation costs which are paid by the adoptive home varying from $150.00-$200.00 for out-of-state adoptions only.

Our adoption contract can be viewed on our website at www.ootwrescue.org
