My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.

left eye has been removed


My name is Gretel! I am a really cool ,happy girl. I weigh in at 36 pounds and I am 3 years. I have a beautiful light brindle coat.  I am a short, smaller pitty girl. I wandered in the park for a week, before some kind people were able to trap me. I guess my owner left me there on purpose, my harness was so tight that it had to be cut off. What a horrible experience that was. I was so scared and when your person dumps you, my confidence went out the door. My foster mom took me to the vet right away to get my abrasions treated and to find out what was wrong with my left eye. It turns out that I have a condition called dry eye. I had my eye removed  October 19th and now I am ready for a new home. I hope you don't mind that I wink at you. I think an eye patch would make me look cool.

I come across wrong to other dogs, because I have the little dog syndrome. I need to be the only dog in the home and don't need to see lots of other dogs on my walks. I LOVE my walks.  Definitely no cats. I am crate trained, house trained and totally vetted. I am very obedient  and loving. I will bark a little if someone is at your door and then I settle down and want to be friends. I am living with a young boy in my foster home. He is my buddy, so I am child safe. My people are the apple of my eye, even if there is only one eye(LOL)

I will be fine in my crate while you are gone and a couple of walks a day and some time to play with squeaky toys will make me happy. I can be trusted not to bother anything in your home.Isn't there someone out there who doesn't care if I don't like  interacting with other dogs.Not all dogs do ,you know.

I have had a Wisdom Panel DNA test and it turns out that I am a very large Chihuahua, at least 8% of me is. Check out my DNA results, there is much more in the report than is posted on my page and that will be available to my adopter.
