Arrival Story: Jenny was another rescue/sucker moment from my work. The woman I got her from had been handed a 5 week old puppy by her neighbor who was moving. A week later, "Jeanie" came down with vomiting and bloody diarrhea. The woman did not want to spend the money on the exam, let alone a parvo test so I offered to take the dog. Originally, as most tiny chihuahuas do not do well with parvo, I had said that I was going to put her to sleep if she came up positive. Lo', the test DID come up positive, but it was one of those super weak positives along the lines of "If you squint at it out of just your left eye under the third full moon of the year, there's a line there." Because of that super weak result, I took home injectable antibiotics and cerenia and gave it a go. The result was a quickly perfectly okay tiny puppy who spent the first two weeks with me living in a 10 gallon fish tank.
Bio: Miss Jenny is looking for a forever home. I've had tons of people express interest in her and fail to follow through. This makes me rather sad as she is a delightful little dog and desperately wants a person to love on.
Jenny can be shy/uncertain at first when meeting new people, but warms up pretty quickly with some one-on-one interaction.
Jenny is crate trained (one of my cats thinks she is something to hunt, so she is mostly in a large crate) and is fine and quiet in her crate. She is pee-pad trained for the most part, but sometimes forgets where to go if she's gotten really excited.
Jen gets along very well with other small, playful dogs. She has unfortunately had a string of poor experiences with larger (35+ pound) dogs so that she now cowers/runs when exposed to a larger dog. She would do best in a home with a small playmate or two that is active, but polite. Jenny gets along fine with 3 of my cats and grew up playing with my foster kittens.
Miss Jenny would probably not do well in a household with small, active children as she is quite tiny and with her bouncing around is quite the tripping hazard.
She is current on all her vaccines, but does still need to spayed.
