My story

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

Cupcake is a very sweet 12 y.o. Chihuahua who was surrendered with her sister Daisy when their owner passed away.  There was no family that could take care of them, so we stepped in to save them. We've discovered that she and her sister are independent of each other and rarely, if ever, hang out together.  Cupcake is the picture of health, and she had a dental in 2021. She loves to patrol the yard and will come in when called.  Cupcake does NOT act like a senior dog.  She can never be let off-lead - she likes to follow her nose.  When Cupcake first meets someone new, she's a little aloof, but after one day in your home, and she'll be your faithful companion.  She enjoys sleeping on a dog bed in the living room, or on her foster mom's bed.  She's not much on snuggling close at night, she prefers the foot of the bed.  She has a healthy appetite, but needs to stay on a fish/salmon diet so that she doesn't get a rash on her tummy.  She loves Purina One Sensitive Skin & Stomach dry food and eats 1/4 cup twice a dayShe could be an only dog, or she gets along great with other dogs.  When she met a child at the vet office, she did just fine.  Her foster mom says she's perfect for just about any family, except no toddlers please - she's a tiny dog with tiny bones.  She looks like a white mini-German Shepherd - she weighs 12 lbs.

Alcovy dogs are spayed/neutered, up to date on all vaccines, up to date on heart-worm preventative and flea preventative and micro-chipped.

If interested in adoption, please complete an online application on Alcovy Pet Rescue's website at www.alcovypet.com. You must have a vet reference to adopt. We verify the care of past/current pets. Applications without a vet reference will not be approved for adoption. Our goal is to have the very best home for all our dogs and cats and therefore we reserve the right to approve or deny an application based on what we determine is in the pet's best interest.
