Dottie is a 2 year old purebred Chihuahua. She weighs only 6.7 pounds.
This little girl was brought to us after her human mommy couldn't take care of her anymore. She has cancer and asked for us to find her baby a good home.
Dottie is absolutely adorable, but she is scared to death right now. We are working with her to learn to trust us and will be getting her into a foster home soon.
She will take treats from you, but if you try to pick her up she will try to bite you. We are being very patient and gentle with her so she can get past her fears on her own time.
If you would like to meet Dottie please fill out an application from our website. She will need a fenced yard for her safety when she is outdoors.
