June Bug is a senior chihuahua whom Ive been told was one of many from a home/ owner surrender situation.. She is very dainty, scared of a lot of things. She doesnt see well, so I think that contributes to her fears. She does love to be held, and I think was a lap chi. She ignores other dogs, has sniffed a few and does not interact. She is very quiet does not bark, does her business out doors or on a pad. She hhas a great appetite, and seems healthy except for her eyesight. There do not seem to be cataracts present. She presents as snarling and mean, but if you talk to her, and pet her she relaxes and comes up to you to be picked up and held. This is a dog that is in need of a chi person. She is not the easiest but she is by far not the worst. She would do well in a home with a senior and one other chi or no other dogs. walks well on lead but does not like her neck handled. A harness would be a better choice for her. She is a burrower and has a chi bed that can go with her. She has an upcoming vet visit to examine her, but we will start taking applications. She will be a great dog for someone experienced with chihuahua. Fostered in Bradenton 9/13/23 UPDATE!! Junie has sight in her left eye only, so some of her cautiousness has to do with not seeing from the blind side. She is doing great with my 10 dogs and they are all much larger.. She accepts sniffs from them and she does interact, but does not play.. She is very alert and very healthy!! Loves to go outside, and now that she is used to where she is she prefers to potty outdoors. I can safely say she is house trained. She will jump up to my lap and hang out for a bit. She does well in her penned area, Ive yet to hear her bark. Loves to be outdoors in the sun. Rides well in the car with a harness. She will do well with an older couple or person, walks are great, and not a lot of activity in the home. Another dog is great for canine company, but not a puppy. She will be okay with older kids 15 and up. Great on walking on lead, harness will be better. She does need time to know new people, the less hands on the better. Let her approach you, she craves affection. Dental coming up and I suspect some pulled teeth. Fostered in Bradenton..
