  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
Hello, my name is Taffy, I am a 12 year old 5 pound, Deer Head Chihuahua. My foster mom says that I am no trouble at all.
At my age I need a lot of beauty sleep, and you can tell by the pictures that it is working.
I am potty trained on piddle pads and also will follow my doggy siblings outside to use the potty. Sometimes I also use the dog door.
I enjoy short walks, but we go a little farther every time. My foster mom thinks that I wasn't cuddled very much, and that I may have been picked on a lot, because I am pretty skittish, but making progress. My foster mom picks me up and cuddles me at night and I'm getting used to it.
I would like a quiet home with good food, a comfy bed, some blankies and someone who understands that I'm a little old lady who needs a soft place to land where I can spend the rest of my days.
If you would like to make Taffy a part of your family please fill out an application online at www.lapdogrescue.org and include her name at the top.
Note, my adoption fee is $95.00.
