Facts about Gwen

  • Breed: Chihuahua Mix
  • Color: Black - With Gray Or Silver
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female


Gwen is 8 years young and weighs all of 4 1/2 lbs. She is not aggressive but is an alpha female. Gwen thinks she is queen of the castle, ruler of the roost, and Boss Chi. She is bossy and can be a tad pushy with other dogs. She is fostered with other dogs and there have been no fights, but she definitely makes sure everyone knows who is in charge. Gwen would do best with older dogs or maybe no other dogs at all. She is fine with cats. She is a bit of a drama queen but a good girl with great potty manners and a perfect lap dog and companion. She seems to believe she is a spoiled human child who grew up in the Hamptons, so we will not tell her that she is from the shelter. :)

If you would like to adopt Gwen, please fill out an application at Her adoption fee, including vetting paperwork, microchip registration to adopter, collar & harness, is $200.
