Adoption Pending :)
Adoption Area: East Tennessee

Rachel needs: Hi everyone, my name is Rachel. I’m a 9-lb female 6½-year-old Black and Tan Chihuahua mix. Before coming to SBRET I lived with a lot of dogs and I didn’t have much contact with humans. I’m a very gentle, quiet, and well behaved little girl. Sometimes I get under foot and everyone in my new home needs to be sure-footed so no one gets hurt. It takes me a little time to trust both dogs and people but I’m getting a lot better with that especially if treats are involved. I might try to slip out of my collar or leash and run off so I really do need a secure fenced yard. I do walk very well on a leash/harness.

The first few days, if kept on a leash/harness in the fenced yard, I will probably learn to trust you and not try to escape my harness. I’m doing really well with my house-training and I would need someone home part of the day in order to continue doing well. In my foster home they have pee pads just in case one of the dogs needs to do their business and I have used them a time or two.

I would like another dog to pal around with but I would do fine as an only pet. I don’t really have any interest in toys but maybe that will change someday. For now I enjoy snuggling under a blanket next to my person. I’m very well behaved and I wait for my foster mom to invite me to snuggle and then I’m so happy to be next to her.

When my foster mom is busy on the computer I like to nap in a bed under her desk. I sleep crated all night quietly burrowed under my blanket. My foster mom leaves my crate door open so I can nap there during the day if I want to. I ride well in the car. I prefer a car seat but my foster mom says it safer for me crated in the car and I’m ok with that also.

I am up to date on all my vaccines and flea and heartworm prevention. I am spayed and microchipped. My adoption fee is $175.

If you have shy dog experience, patience, and a safe loving home, contact my friends at SBRET.COM and get your application approved and we can meet. Let’s snuggle soon.
