Home. Some cats and dogs never have one to call their own. PeoplePets.com would like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary homeless pet from Adopt-a-Pet.com every month. This month it’s Indira, who’s being fostered for a local rescue group by one of our own Adopt-a-Pet.com staff! Indira is a sweet-natured senior dog who may have missed her calling as a supermodel. This 7-lb. Chihuahua has legs made for the catwalk. “Some Chihuahuas have little short legs, she’s got long legs,” says foster mom. Much like a sashaying model, “she floats when she trots.” The 10-year-old pooch was at a Pasadena, Calif., shelter when Molly’s Mutts & Meows animal rescue scooped her up in May. The housetrained and well-mannered pooch was obviously someone’s pet, judging by her skills. “She’s trained to wait at the door and only go out when you say, ‘Okay, go,'” says Warner.
“She’s a little doll, one of the easiest fosters I’ve ever had,” she adds. Quiet and super friendly, Indira loves other animals and is great with gentle, calm children. “I call her Miss Social,” says Warner. “Because everyone that passes on walks she’s like, ‘Hi, hi, hi, hi.'”
The cuddly canine (who will “jump in your lap if you invite her”) has a unique white stripe on her shiny black coat, reminiscent of her namesake Indira Gandhi. And like the famous Indian politician, “She’s very politically correct in everything that she does.”
