Jewel is a feisty, 6 month old, Chihuahua mix (~12lbs)pup that loves her fur buddies and every toy she can get her mouth on!!!! She’s been in a house with kitties and wants to play with them, sometimes she’s just a little fast at her approach so that doesn’t make them pleased, however she doesn’t try to hurt them.
She came to us as an extremely fearful girl that wouldn’t even drink water if she wasn’t in her crate. Now, she loves to be out and about. She eats out of her bowl while all of her fur buddies do and will even drink out of the community house water bowl. She is crate trained and goes in well if you give the command “get in your bed”.
She will come for a pat on the head if the rest of the babies are asking for them. Otherwise, she’s still leery of a humans touch and will need a very patient owner willing to be patient with her. SHE MUST HAVE ANOTHER PLAYFUL DOG IN THE HOME. A home with older children would be best and a fenced in yard. She’s UTD on shots, chipped and spayed, and on monthly flea and heart worm medicine.
