My name is Carlee. I am approximately 6 years old and a darling little Chihuahua girl weighing 3.2 pounds. I had a rough time before getting to SBRET, but I am with my foster mom and dad now and I'm doing great. Before coming to rescue I was attacked by a larger dog and taken to a shelter, unable to walk and with an ugly puncture wound. I also had another wound already healed on my head where I was probably attacked previously too. I had to have a lot of R and R and meds to get to the point I am now. I am continuing to improve on my walking and running but my back legs may always be just a bit wobbly.

I am very sweet and affectionate and I love to be held and cuddled. I sleep in my x-pen at night in a soft cuddly bed and I don't make a peep. In my forever home I would probably love to sleep in the big bed with you if that is what you would like. I will use a potty pad indoors, but will potty outside if taken out frequently (every 2-3 hours).

I don't mind car rides and I hardly ever bark unless I am startled or scared. I am most definitely a lap dog but I do startle a bit when you first pick me up until you hold me close. Due to my small size I will do best with an adult home and someone home during the day or at least part of the day. I do well with other small dogs in my foster home but no large dogs please. I do not need to have a dog buddy. I have a good appetite and I love apples as a snack, although you will have to cut them up for me.

Due to the fact my rear legs are a bit unsteady, I am hesitant to walk on hardwood floors. My foster mom has laid carpet runners around the house for me. I'm not sure if this is something I will overcome or not. Sometimes I sneeze a bit when you take me outside, but i love to lay in the warm grass and will even roll over. My mom takes me on the deck in the evenings and I will lay quietly on a pillow.

My foster mom says I am one of the most well behaved and sweetest little girls ever!! If you think you may be the right home for me, please contact my friends at SBRET. My adoption fee is $175.
