Our beautiful Pearl was found with five little babies in tow trying to survive the streets of Houston all alone. She did a great job keeping her babies safe until she caught the attention of one of our fosters who quickly whisked this little family to safety. We are so excited that she is ready to be somebody’s baby, forever!
Pearl is a roughly 2 year-old Chihuahua mix. She is 12 pounds, fully grown and a medium energy girl. Pearl is a jackpot dog, she is so easy going, loving, and just so happy. She would be ideally suited for any family and living situation.
Pearl currently lives with other dogs that are bigger than her and does just fine. She would be great as an addition to a family that already has other dogs or as a bachelorette getting all of the love. While Pearl has does not currently live with children, we think her general disposition will make her well suited for children who have been taught how to be respectful of animals.
Pearl has done great with her house and kennel training. But, she should be adopted by a family that understands that it can take dogs time to acclimate into their new lives. This time could include having accidents, crying in her kennel, or chewing on things she is not supposed to. She needs a family that will provide her with positive reinforcement while she is going through this adjustment.
We expect our dogs to be adopted by families who plan to keep them as indoor pets and part of the family. We do not adopt to families who plan to keep dogs outside for an extended period of time, for example the entire workday.
Unfortunately, Pearl was not well cared for prior to coming into rescue and she is heartworm positive. She has been on treatment since coming into rescue and the rescue will provide the medication she needs to complete her treatment. This is not life-threatening, as it is being cared for, it’s just a matter of making sure she has her medication on schedule.
Pearl is fully vetted (spayed, vaccinated and microchipped).
