Most DCHS and Wildlife Center services are by appointment only. If you found a lost animal, need to surrender a pet, found wildlife in need of help, or require another service, please call before coming to the shelter. Adoption visits are handled on a first-come, first-served basis.

Dog | Female | Age: 6 | Terrier/Italian Greyhound/Chihuahua | Spayed/Neutered | Up-to-date on vaccinations

Personality
I am a cautious gal at first. It takes me time to feel comfortable with new people, and I do not like to be around kids. I am cozy spending time in my crate. I can disappear under a blanket faster than you can close my crate door! 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. 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, playing ball, and sniffing around. I'm a great traveler. I love to find a nice spot in the sun to nap. 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. Please give me a little time to learn my tendencies and limits, and then I'm really easy to live with!

Other Animals
Single family home. No apartment buildings. Good with cats. No large dogs. No female dogs (I was attacked by my big sister, and have been separated from her for my safety). Good 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.

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