Sammie Chihuahua Female
Sammie was a victim of Hurricane Florence, and was evacuated from a small rural SC shelter after severe flooding hit the area. She came into rescue understandably terrified, but has really come out of her shell in her foster home. Shes currently being fostered with a large German Shepherd and cats too, and does fine with both.After a few weeks in her foster home, she has become more confident and connected to her foster mom. She likes to follow her foster mom around, and snuggles on her lap when watching TELEVISION. Shes still nervous when she meets someone new, but her foster mom has been gradually socializing her with new people to get her more comfortable.Sammie has a moderate energy level, and loves her walks, but is also happy hanging out on your lap, or sunning herself on the patio. Her leash walking skills have greatly improved, she looks forward to going on walks now, and wags her tail with excitement when its walk time. Shes become a pro going potty on leash too, and will now do her business immediately. Progress!Shes still getting used to unfamiliar noises and things, so she needs an understanding owner who will be gentle with her. She will shake when you put her jacket or harness on, and doesnt like the sound of the "click" when you click the harness closed. But as soon as the leash is on, she's fine because she knows she's going out.Sammie has good house manners. She is housetrained, and now comfortable being crated. Initially she resisted, but if you gently put her by the crate, she goes right in. She has a bed and a nice fluffy blanket in the crate and likes to burrow into the covers. Her foster mom works, so Sammie is used to being crated and has been left alone six to 7 hours a day.Apply today!Breed: Chihuahua mixtureWeight: 10-11 poundsAge: 1.5 - 2 yrsGender: FemaleAdoption payment: $350Vetting: updated on vaccines, dewormed, spayed, micro chipped.
