Dog | Female | Age: 5 | Italian Greyhound / Chihuahua | Spayed/Neutered | Up-to-date on vaccinations

I am a cautious gal at first. It takes me time to feel comfortable with new people. Kids make me feel uneasy. I am cozy in my crate- I can disappear under a blanket faster than you can close my crate door, and I enjoy time on the couch with you as long as I'm not startled. I am eager, persistent, and fun to train! I can jump like a circus dog and will convince you to share your human snacks with me. I am fun and entertaining. I like to chew on things, like my rubber bone toy. If I don't have something you want me to chew on, I'll find something. I may be small, but I can beat up a big plush toy like I belong in a jungle! I enjoy going for walks, hikes, and sniffing around. I prefer to find a nice spot in the sun to nap over spending time outside if it's cold. Even though I get scared if I feel rushed into a physical interaction, I'm quite affectionate and a good snuggler once we get used to each other. Once you learn my tendencies and limits, I'm really easy to live with!

Other Animals
Cats. Large male and female dog. I was attacked by my big sister, and have been separated from her for my safety.

Medical History
Up to date medically. Will need routine nail trims.

Ideal Home
Fine with cats. No large dogs. No female dogs. Okay with socially appropriate male dogs under 30 lbs. No young kids. I will do best in a home where the people can allow me the time I need to warm up to them. I am sensitive to social pressure and to being pet or picked up before I'm ready. If you try to love me with physical affection too quickly, I will be scared. I will thrive in a home where consent and patience is practiced.

Physical Description
Light brown and white. Less than 20#, long-legged! Cutest face.

Other Information
My original owner passed away. I have been evaluated by a professional behaviorist, and have had training to assist with my placement.
