  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female

Hello. My name is October, because I have been with TXCR since October. However, I like to be called Princess because I AM a princess. None of my TXCR friends know what happened to me before they saved me, but whatever it was left me a bit traumatized. I am embarrassed to admit this, but when I get nervous I sometimes pee, but only sometimes! I am getting much better at working through this as my scary past gets further behind me now that I'm with people who love me and want the best for me.

My foster parents have helped me a lot with my fear of the world. I am doing so much better and act like a normal dog now. I kennel well as long as I have a nice comfy bed fit for a princess. I love to wear dresses and sweaters and love to hang out in my doggie sling that my foster mom uses to carry me around. I am doing really well on my leash and harness and have learned that walks and hikes are fun! The best part is that my potty manners are now better than ever!

I only weigh 5.4 pounds but have enough energy inside me to make people think I’m much bigger! I am about 5 years old, but I have the personality of a 2-year-old chihuahua. My favorite activities include cuddling on the couch with my foster mom and doggie sisters, playing with my doggie toys, and running around playing by myself. I also LOVE naptime. While I do take a little time to warm up to new people, once I get used to them I’m a very nice and outgoing little girl. I am not mean even when I’m scared. The things that scare me most are new visitors, thunderstorms, and fireworks. I mean, every dog is scared of those things, right? I surely can’t be the only one!

Though I absolutely love my foster parents, I am looking for my forever family. I have worked very hard to overcome my fear, and I know that I will make the perfect addition to the right family soon. Please, though, I'd prefer a home with no small children where I will be treated like the princess that I am!
