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.
