Hello! My name is Jackie. I'm a very sweet and petite 5-pound, 3-year old female chihuahua. I am a bit shy but if you give me some time to get to know you, you'll see my delightful personality just blossom! That's what my foster mom did - after only a couple of days of being pretty sure she was the Lochness Monster, I now love her and make her giggle with my silliness. I get the zoomies when I'm out in our fenced dog yard and love to run and run. My fenced-in area needs to be very secure to keep me safe. I can be a door squirter so I need a home where my family is very careful I don't find myself on the wrong side of the door. Walking on a leash was a new skill for me but I'm good at it now.

I get along well with other dogs and would be okay being an only dog, although having a small dog buddy might help me settle into my new home more quickly. I love to crawl under blankets or snooze on my foster mom's lap. Cats kind of scare me - I don't get mad at them - I just think they are scary. A home with older children would be best because I'm tiny and breakable! Toys are something I'm just learning about and gosh they are fun!

I'm doing great with my housetraining - my foster mom takes me to the backyard to potty but I'll use a pee pad which my foster mom appreciates when it's cold and rainy outside! I may not be good for an apartment because I have a voice and I'm not afraid to use it, but I'll hush if you tell me to be quiet. I have always slept quietly in my crate at night. I'm quick in my movements and dart away whenever I get scared but if you are gentle and patient with me, I promise I will love you forever!

I had knee surgery to fix luxating patellas and have recovered quite nicely, so I am ready for my new home! I'm up to date with my vaccinations, heartworm negative and on monthly prevention. I hope my new family is reading my little story right now and can't wait to contact my friends at SBRET to let them know they want me to come live with them. Wouldn't that just be wonderful - a dream come true! My adoption fee is $175.

Call me! XOXO Jackie
