Ruff Ruff! My name is Cholla
|Size:||Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less||Sex:||Female|
I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.
http://www.valleydogs.org/cholla.html -- My name is Cholla. I am a chi-weenie (Chihuahua Dachshund mix).
Don’t let my tiny size and big chocolate eyes fool you -- I think I’m 10 foot tall and bullet proof! Ask about the story of me holding off two pit bulls! Yes, I can be a saucy little girl, but it is all part of my charm. The flip side is I am a loving little princess who just wants to spend time with my humans and be loved on and pampered. My foster mom calls me Cholla Joy-a, because I make her laugh with my antics.
I was very sick when Valley Dogs first took me in, but they took me to a wonderful vet and with much love and attention I am all better now and just waiting for my new home. Could it be with you? I love to go for walks and explore the world outside, and to go for car rides. I also delight in curling up next to you on the sofa or sitting in your lap. Although I am kennel trained, I really prefer to cuddle and sleep with you at night – I promise I won’t take up too much room on the bed.
I live with 8 other dogs from big to small, and do fine with them, but since I am under 7 pounds, I would probably do best with dogs more my own size, or very mellow bigger dogs. I can be a little bossy at times, I don’t like being crowded, and I don’t always know when it is best not to push my luck in a canine argument, but I do not “start” anything – I just stand up for myself.
I love people and bond very quickly with those who show me love and kindness. Because of my tiny size, it is best I be in a home with more mature children who understand how to handle a small dog.
Would you like to meet me? Now that I am all better I can’t wait to find my forever home and humans all my own.

Rescue Group Info...
We are a pending non-profit, no-kill rescue organization dedicated to rescuing and rehoming adoptable cats and dogs. We have over 40 years of combined rescue experience and knowledge.
We do not have a kennel / shelter type of facility. We believe the most effective and successful way to match families and pets is to foster them in our own homes. Ultimately fostering our rescue animals in homes rather than a kennel environment allows us to give you complete information on the pet's behavior and how well he / she will fit with your family and lifestyle.
At Valley Dogs we make every effort to place the right animal in the right home. To aid in this goal, we use trained Adoption Consultants to help you select the best match for your lifestyle. You will meet with an Adoption Consultant and discuss your lifestyle, activity level, expectations, likes/dislikes, and past experiences with animals. Your consultant will then recommend the best match for your family and your lifestyle.
