Kimmie is a fluffy, bright-eyed, 3 year old 6lb chihuahua mix who wants to be your snuggle-up-on-the-couch companion. We aren't sure what her mix is exactly, but she likely has some terrier and/or poodle in her, as her low-shedding or non-shedding coat is an interesting mix of silky, curly and scruffy. Kimmie is pee pad trained and appears to be house trained, rides well in the car, and is excellent on a leash.
We have confirmed with a vet that Kimmie is deaf or very hard of hearing. But now that she is in foster care and learning signs (come! good! treat!), it is clear that Kimmie is a very treat-focused & smart little girl. She will naturally be shy & timid at first in new situations and with new people, but quickly turns curious and friendly. Kimmie relies on her other senses and is sensitive to movement, vibrations, and scent in her environment. She will bark if startled, but is otherwise a pretty quiet dog who will sleep through sounds that normally set other dogs to barking. During the day, she will find an out-of-the-way corner or crate to safely snooze. She is fine in a crate at night but we suspect she would also adore a spot on the bed under the covers. Like all deaf dogs, she should not be startled out of sleep or surprised from behind.
Kimmie is good with other little dogs and would be likely ok with a very unflappable dog-tolerant cat, but would happily chase a skittish cat because it would be such a fun game. Kimmie would be a great match for a household of adults with a predictable daily schedule and perhaps with another little dog for her to cue off from & to be her "ears".
Kimmie is spayed, up-to-date on shots, and micro-chipped, and her adoption fee is $250.
All of our dogs are in private volunteer foster homes, and as such these individuals are most qualified to answer any questions regarding the dog.
We do not have a central shelter or kennel locations - you must make a private one-on-one meet and greet appointment with each individual dog at the foster family's convenience. To protect our foster families' privacy, we must have an APPROVED adoption application on file before we release their contact information.
All of our dogs are fixed (spayed/neutered) and up to date on shots. We have a 2 week foster-to-adopt period to make sure the dog is a fit for your family. Adoption fees vary from dog-to-dog.
Please note that an approved application DOES NOT guarantee that the dog will be placed with you. The final decision rests with our fosters as they know the dogs the best, and please be aware that there may be other applicants interested in the same dog. We continue accepting applications on a dog until the dog is with the new adoptive family in their home.
