Bonita is a Chihuahua, approximately 12 years old, and weighing around 10 pounds. This funny girl has really come out of her shell now that she knows she is safe. Bonita, or Bonni as her foster calls her, bounces around trying to get your attention. She barks and wags her tail wanting in on the fun when her foster brother is getting all the attention. She doesn't want to miss any action and wants to be in the same room with you - she'll follow you from room to room. She loves nothing better than laying next to you on the couch or bed and be petted. She will roll on her back to get a belly rub too. Bonita is good with other dogs of any size - though she is not looking to be a playmate. She definitely prefers her humans and will talk to you to get your attention. Bonni is crate trained and house trained - she is a senior and therefore needs to be let out frequently. She's a smart, little lady who learns quickly.
Poor Bonita through no fault of her own she ended up at a kill shelter in Texas. Her previous owners turned her in because she was "getting too old!" Chihuahua's can live a long time and it's not unusual to see them reach 18 years of age.
Bonita would do best in a home without young kids, older kids would be fine, a family who will take care of her and spoil her. Please fill out an application at www.ehrdogs.org and ask for her by name - BONITA TEXAS!
