Patient adult only home who can show her the joys of the outside world
Can live with dogs of a similar size
Chihuahua experience home would be beneficial
Anwen is a 6 year old chihuahua who is a little sweetie. She can be a bit nervous when she first meets you, but once she gets to know you she loves to be on your knee having lots of cuddles and fusses. She loves sunning herself in the garden and is very good at scaring off any pigeons who happen to land on the fence.
She has a grade 1-2 heart murmur which doesn’t need any medication and the vets are happy for this to be monitored going forward on her annual health checks.
Anwen is a typical Chi and will bond with her human deeply, but tends to shy away from strangers so will take her time to warm up to you. Due to how nervous she can be an adult only home would suit her best.
Anwen is fine around other dogs and shows no aggression even with larger dogs. She would like a home with other small dogs to help her settle and learn about the big wide world. She had not been cat tested but due to her size say she maybe ok with a dog savvy cat and if introductions are done properly.
Anwen has been good with her toileting but has had a few accidents as she doesn’t always indicate she wants to go out. She will however always go in the garden if you open the door for her. She’ll either sleeps on foster mums bed, sofa or chooses to take herself off to her crate. She’s not at all destructive and hasn’t yet started to play with toys. She does however love her food but can be a bit fussy at times, but chicken always goes down well. Anwen has no issues when being left on her own and can be left for a few hours no problem.
Anwen is very frightened of the big wide world and needs a patient owner who can show her that sniffing and being outside is a positive thing. Her love for food will help as positive reinforcement. She does however love to sun herself in the garden and protect her human from the pesky pigeons. She’s frightened of the vets, but does not nip or bite them. She seems to be ok in the van when travelling.
Anwen would be suitable for a retired person or someone who is home most of the time that has lots of patience and time to show her that the world isn’t that scary when she has a human who is behind her 110%. She needs a securely enclosed back garden where she can potter and toilet. She is nervous of the outside world but new owners need to teach her the joys of being outside and this will obviously take time and be at her pace.
