Liza Minelli D2023-114

  • Resident dog of a similar size
  • Older teenage children
  • Chihuahua experienced home

Liza is a nearly two years old chihuahua described by her foster mum as a typical chi. She is scared and unsure of new people when she first meets them and will bark growl or hide if she feels out of her depth. Once she’s given you her approval she’s a happy girl and will happily trot around following you and snuggle next to you. She needs her new family to advocate for her and leave her to digest her new surroundings in these situations but it doesn’t take her long to trust then she’s a happy cheeky little girl.

She can also be unsure when first meeting dogs, well everyone is much bigger than her, but she is in foster with 3 other dogs and although she now and again tries to play with them especially the small breed and follow them she’s happy to be with her human as much as she can.

Liza has taken a huge liking to the 14 year old in the home and is quite happy to spend all her time with him and no one else unless he’s not there then foster mum or dad will have to do. She will support him when he’s playing on his Xbox by cuddling right up to him and follow him in and out the garden when he calls her. She sleeps all night on his bed and will sit in the window and wait for him when he pops out.

She has tried on a few occasions to play with the smaller breed dogs in her foster home and with time and the right dog they could be best of friends

Liza adores being out on the lead and gets excited when she sees it. She is happy to meet new people out and about but will constantly look to her humans for reassurance.

Liza sleeps on her foster mums sons bed and sleeps all night cuddled up and it’s her best place to be.

Liza needs encouragement from her humans to remember to toilet outside. As soon as she is in the garden she will go but she needs to be reminded.

Liza does not have any food aggression she eats very slowly and will need time to finish her meal if around other dogs as they may be likely to steal it.

Liza is looking for a chihuahua experienced home with another dog for her to follow and learn from. She would love a teenager or family member that would invite her for cuddles and let her sleep on their bed. Small children are scary to her so no young children in the home. She would like to continue her adventures outside so needs a family who will take her for nice walkies.
