Female | 1 years | Chihuahua, Short Coat • Mix


****My adoption fee has been reduced by a generous donor.****

Name: Hormigita

Age: 1 year

Weight (approx.): 11 lbs

Personality: Hi there! My name is Hormigita and I'm looking for my new happy family! I'm a sweet girl who would love to go home with toys and treats and fun walks. Sometimes new places or people can be intimidating, but if my family is there to help me build my confidence then it'll be easy to work through my worries! I've also heard that positive reinforcement training classes can be pretty fun and can help with building confidence! I can be pretty nervous, so a family willing to help me learn that the world isn't such a scary place would be a perfect fit! Have you met my bff, Jalisco? We are just the most wonderful pair, looking for a home to go to together!

Medical History: I appear to be a healthy adult, but it's always a good idea to set up an appointment with my new vet soon, so that we can meet and make plans to keep me happy and healthy!

Adoption Fee: $100 + tax for the pair
