Little Girl – ADOPTED!!

Little Girl is a tri-color (black, tan and white), short hair, 11 pound, Dachshund Chihuahua mix.  She came to us from Animal Control in Roswell, NM after being picked up as a stray.  She has just completed her first visit to the vet and has been appraised to be in good health.  She has all of her shots, is heart worm negative, and has been microchipped.  She is scheduled to be spayed in mid-December.

 Since arriving at our foster home, she has been a darling.  She loves to play with her 1 year old foster brother, and our 11 year old chocolate dachshund.  They run and jump in our back yard, and she loves to play fetch with a tennis ball with her foster brothers.  She absolutely loves squeak toys, but she loves them to pieces very quickly (but we have plenty of replacement squeakers to repair the toys).  She loves cuddling with her foster parents when we watch TV.  Little Girl is being house broken (we don’t have a dog door, so the success at training is up to her parents).  She is learning to walk on a leash with daily walks to check on our horse, the chickens and her big sisters, our female Pit Bulls.  Little Girl is quickly learning basic commands… sit, shake, down, stay, etc.  She is also being crate trained, but really doesn’t want to settle down until the house is dark and quiet.  About 5 AM, she is ready to go out to relieve her bladder.  When she come back in the house, everyone had better be out of bed.  She jumps on the bed to give wonderful puppy kisses, and then snuggle up to anyone who wants to stay in bed.  She is very good when meeting other dogs for the first time, and loves meeting new people.  She does well meeting friendly cats for the first time.  Right now, we don’t have experience with her and children, but we believe that she would do well with well-behaved children.  Little Girl is a joy to have.  She is very energetic, loves to play, and loves to kiss and snuggle with her people. She is being fostered in Chaparral and her adoption fee is $275.
