Cagney is a beautiful, loving and lovable long-haired Chihuahua. As with most of her breed, she adores her own people and takes a few minutes to warm up to strangers. She is indifferent to other pets with her attention more focused on her people than playing with other dogs. She is truly just a little companion. Cagney is approximately 2 years old and weight just over 10 lbs.
Here is what else her foster family had to say:
Cagney is your total little companion. She is always seeking my attention, and loves to be papered and caressed. She loves to give kisses and generally just wants to be wherever you are. She is a little timid when meeting new people and although generally quiet in the home, she will bark when strangers first enter the home, especially strange men. Given a bit of time however, she appears to warm up to everyone including children. She is pretty much indifferent to other pets neither being aggressive with them or playful. Usually when approached by other dogs she is afraid of them.
Cagney has very good house manners and she never gets into anything she shouldn't and has never been destructive wen when left on her own. When we leave the house she just goes and lies down somewhere. She never tries to bolt out the door. She is fully house trained and we have never felt the need to crate her. She loves going for short walks and is very good on leash. The only command she knows is "sit" but because she is so willing to please, she has the potential to learn a lot of commands. She is quiet in the home even when left on her own.
Cagney would be a perfect companion for someone who likes spending time at home or involved in activities where you are able to take her with you. Her lapdog nature is suitable for a relaxed environment, with someone who doesn't mind being followed every where by her, and enjoys the occasional "kiss attack". She is a lovely, affectionate and devoted little girl.
If you would like to have this little girl as your perfect companion, please submit an application for consideration.
