Myrtle's Requirements:
- Adult low-key home or one with children over 12
- Someone home during the day
- Female caregiver (she is scared of men)
- Will do best with a small laid-back male dog
- Fenced yard as it takes her a long time to go potty on a leash

Hi I’m Myrtle, a 9-year-old 12-pound female spayed Chihuahua mix. I came from a local shelter and had a small growth that was removed and found to be a mast cell tumor. It was totally removed and the vet thinks I should not have any problems since they got it all. I’m not a real active girl and would prefer a low key home. I like hanging out on the couch with my person. I would prefer a home with a nice single lady as men are a bit scary to me. Kids are just to much for me to handle also, they make me nervous. I follow my foster mom all around the house and love sitting with her on the couch but will still try to slink away if she tries to pick me up. I do not play with other dogs but do feel more secure with another small laid back male dog around. I’m not crazy about female dogs or larger rambunctious dogs. When my foster mom is gone to work I hang out with the male dogs in her home in our doggie room and do just fine. But I do not like being totally alone. I am an anxious little girl and my foster mom gives me just a bit of medication to help when she has to leave and sometimes to help me settle at night. Hopefully the longer I am with you and get with your routine my anxiety will get better. At night I sleep in a crate next to foster mom's bed but I would also love to sleep in bed with my new family if it’s permitted. I have one special toy that I love and take to bed with me every night.

I ride in a crate in the car without making a sound. I will bark if someone is at the door but am not a huge barker as long as I have my male dog buddies around for comfort. Cats are ok as long as they are laid back and don’t run or try to scratch me if I ignore them.

If you are looking for a tv watching buddy I’m the dog for you! Just remember I need time to settle in but once settled I’ll be your constant companion. I have been spayed, microchipped, and am current on vaccines and heartworm/flea prevention. My adoption fee is $100.
