Humans are my favorite!

Hi, friends! My name is Dottie, and I’m a 3-year-old Chihuahua, weighing in at eight pounds.  I found my way to TAP via another local rescue and can’t wait to find my furever home!

My foster mama says that I’m an easy girl who’s sweet and loving once you’ve earned my trust.  I love being near my person at all times of the day.  My other favorite activities include going on walks, getting treats, and sleeping most of the day.  While I don’t have any separation anxiety when left behind, I do need time to warm up to new people.  Therefore, slow introductions are recommended.  Other than that, I’m potty-trained, crate-trained, and leash-trained, and I’ve already been spayed.  My health is in great shape, too!

I’d prefer a mellow home, preferably with no kiddos.  A doggie sibling (or two) would be fine, just as long as they are larger in size than me.  However, I do have a strong prey drive towards small animals, so no kitties please!

Do we sound like a match? If so, my adoption fee is $300 and that includes spaying/neutering, shots, and microchip.  If you want to take me home, please fill out the form on the website here: https://theanimalpad.org/adoption-application/.
