Hello! My name is Lea. I am a doll! I am a 7 pound, female, black/tan Chihuahua mix and approximately 4 years old. I was in a shelter and then rescued by Small Breed Rescue. I am happy and very sweet. I will be your new best friend! I enjoy going for walks and I love people and other dogs! I would love to be in a family with at least one other dog. I am comfortable being part of the gang. I am not crated because the crate/pen makes me anxious and I will scratch continuously to get out. I tested positive for heartworms at the shelter. Fortunately, Small Breed took me in and treated me. This involved medication as well as being as quiet as I could possibly be for several months. Now I am ready to be adopted!
Housetraining: I need someone home during the day because I am still working (and progressing!) on my housetraining. My foster family and I have worked very hard on my housetraining. My foster Mom brings me outside every 2 hours during the day to potty. And, if I cannot wait the 2 hours, I go on the potty pad. I am highly praised for this accomplishment! This has been a huge accomplishment for me! I am so very sweet and gentle and I really just want to please you. Please be patient with me. At night, once we go to bed, I do not potty until the morning. I am working on riding in the car. This scared me at first, but I do a bit better with each car ride. I can't say that I enjoy it, yet. I will not be a good match for a family that has younger children because I am small and delicate.
I have had a dental, I am spayed, I am up to date on all vaccinations, I am microchipped and I receive heartworm and flea preventative each month. My adoption fee is $175. Love, Lea
