He came from a shelter they believed had been hit by a car he had a broken pelvis and injured leg, but we are fairly sure he was beaten. He was terrified of anything like a broom and pees and poops himself.  He's getting better every day. He needs a quiet home, cats are okay, but no male dogs. He can be a sweet boy but wants to trust but we can see it in his eyes as he sizes up every situation. He loves playing with the female dogs in his foster home and can spend hours outside just running and playing.  He weighs about 9 pounds, is microchipped and has been fully vaccinated. Neuter to be announced still recovering from a broken pelvis and injured leg. Please consider adopting a senior dog. They are passed over routinely in shelters and Chihuahua senior dogs who are black are then the number 2 breed most euthanized in shelters. Adopt don't shop! ##1371753##

Sweet, playful Angel is a very special baby! She is not the brightest puppy but her personality shines! She had a traumatic pre-natal brain injury, which causes her to be a little slow and fearful of stranger, but she just wants to be loved and pampered once she knows you. She is looking for an adopter OR local foster. See her in action: https://youtu.be/pzkg5YSiTaQ

Story
VIOLET - Violet is a well behaved, active dog that really enjoys her walks (We take three walks a day). She was rescued at two-months old and I adopted her at 5 months. She was two-years old November 22nd 2023. - - - - REHOMING: I am relocating and she can't move into the place I'm moving to. - - - - ACTIVITY: She would be a great fit for an active, somewhat experienced pet owner. - - - - TRAINING: She's trained and responds to vocal commands and hand commands. Sit, Stay, Wait, Leave it, Come, Follow, Paw. - - - - PERSONALITY: Violet is shy but not to the point of being unsocial with others. She's good with other dogs, people, and all of the children she's met on our walks. - - - - OTHER CHARACTERISTICS: Her coat is soft and short. She hardly ever barks. Truly. It must be the Basenji in her. I didn't think she would bark at all until one day she was startled by some one walking around a corner. - - - - DEADLINE: I need to find a new home for her by the third week in February 2/23.
