Adoption Pending :)
Adoption Area: Knoxville/East Tennessee

Connie needs: Hello friends! My name is Connie. I am a 5-year old, 8-pound female chihuahua mix. I have black and white fur - just like the Chik-fil-a cow :). I was surrendered to SBRET when my owner could no longer care for me so here I am looking for the perfect forever home.

When I first came to my foster home, I was very scared and skittish and barked a lot but when I realized that I was in a safe place, my sweet and happy personality came out. It just takes me some time to get comfortable but when I settle in, I love everyone in my foster home. I may not have been used to meeting new people in my previous life before coming to rescue so I get very nervous and anxious when I do. I will need my forever home to have previous experience with very skittish and shy dogs like me. I also need a secure fenced yard.

I walk well on a leash (check out my video below) and would enjoy going for walks around the neighborhood. I am also doing well with my house training as long as you take me outside regularly during the day. I get along with the other dogs in my foster home, but I do better with calm, laid-back small dogs. At night, I sleep quietly in a crate in my foster parents' bedroom but would also love to sleep in the big bed with my humans.

I have been spayed, microchipped, had a dental, and am up-to-date on vaccines and flea/heartworm prevention. My adoption fee is $175.
