Hi! Don't you just love my funny little smile and big beautiful ears? My name is Ladybird. I was named after a first lady because my foster mom thinks I am! I'm a petite 5-pound, 8-year old, female Chihuahua. I'm a super duper friendly and a happy little girl. I'm black and tan with big beautiful soulful eyes! I came from a place where I had lots of babies and they didn't protect me from fleas so I had very itchy skin. BUT now that horrible life is behind me, I'm looking forward to a warm and comfortable life with you!

I had double knee surgery to fix luxating patellas in early October 2017. I had a mammary tumor removed, a dental where I lost teeth, and a mast cell tumor removed from under my tail. I'm all healed now BUT you'll need to make sure that if I have new lumps and bumps, these have to be checked out by a vet. I have to tell you that I feel pretty wonderful now!!! Oh...and about not having many teeth left...I don't have any trouble eating dry kibble! I'm doing great with my housetraining - I don't mind going outside to potty but will use a pee pad if it's cold and rainy outside.

My new home should have another little friendly dog buddy for me to hang with and maybe I can clean their ears! I like that job and feel it's my duty to keep all critters nearby clean, EXCEPT THE CATS!!! I would rather not have to share my life with cats. Sometimes I get a bit too intense about keeping other dogs' ears clean so my foster mom has to tell me to stop and I do because I'm a very good little girl. I like toys, playing with other little dogs, and sleeping on the sofa. I sleep just fine in my crate at night. Because I'm a petite little girl, the children in my forever home need to be at least 12 years old. I have a voice and I'm not afraid to use it so I would not be a great dog for an apartment. But if you don't mind being reminded when it's time for my meals, or sharing your lap, love and sofa with a sweet little Chihuahua girl, please let my friends at SBRET know! I've got some serious loving to do and there is no time like the present! I have been spayed, microchipped, up-to-date with my vaccinations, and on monthly heartworm and flea prevention. My adoption fee is $175. I love you already!

Love,
Ladybird
