This adorable little lady is Lulu, a 7 year old chihuahua that came to us from NC with 24 of her friends when they were taken from a hoarding situation. Little Miss Lulu is such a special girl.....she had a stroke at some point in her life and has a tendency to run sideways occasionally, and also scratch her self every so often. None of this phases her or causes her any harm or pain, it just adds to her lively little personality. Lulu is a bit shy upon meeting people but makes friends quickly. She is super sweet and lovable, and would love a quiet home where she could spend her days snoozing on a comfy couch and snuggling with someone that loves her. Lulu gets along well with other dogs but would prefer a home with no small children under the age of 12. This precious little lady is so deserving of a fresh start in life....please make her dreams come true! 10/12/12 File#21968
