Breed: Chihuahua

Gender: Female

Age: 6 years and 0 months


When my owner recently passed away, I had nowhere else to go.  Thankfully, FOHA came to my rescue.  I was distraught and confused and adjusting to life in a kennel was, admittedly, a challenge.  Can you blame me?  I am not accustomed to concrete floors, concrete walls, and a wire cage.  Instead, I am accustomed to a calm environment and tranquility, which would likely make me best suited for a home without small children. 


The staff and volunteers at FOHA have been very kind to me and I am learning to adapt until I find my forever home.  As evidenced in the photo below, when taking a walk, I am often adorned with a cute, pink dress with a daisy at the top.  I love showing off my lovely attire which, as you can imagine, captures a lot of attention.  After a leisurely stroll, I often roll onto my back and request belly rubs.  Everyone is happy to oblige. 


After a wonderful walk and glorious cuddle time, I really don’t want to go back to my kennel run.  But I understand that this is temporary -- for my forever family will find me soon.

This dog can only be adopted within the Washington D.C. metro area.
