She is just a sweet little lady. She is why Chihuahua lovers love the breed 😉 Patches will do anything to be with you and will stare at you with loving googly eyes all day if you let her. She came to us with Crystal the Pug when her previous owners could no longer care for her. Both of them found themselves in rescue but were diagnosed with Heartworm disease and that rescue needed help. Of course we said yes! They have spent the last 6 months going through painful treatment for this. Unfortunately, this is completely preventable by giving a once a month pill. She also had a lot of dental work done. She needed a few removed and while she was under for that they discovered on dental xray that she had some teeth that never erupted and needed to be removed. Finally we thought she was ready to go and she ended up getting and ear infection and shook her head so hard she developed a hematoma on her ear flap. This is where a blood vessel breaks open inside the ear flap and causes it to fill up in a pocket. She had to have her tiny ear bandaged to the top of her head 🙁 We can safely say that she is on her way to recovery now and would love to find a forever home that will keep her on heartworm prevention (HeartGard) and spoil her. She is about 5 years old. We thought that she and Crystal needed to be adopted together at first, however over the past 6 months we have realized that they do not really care for each other at all… in fact they get into frequent spats. Patches does not have issues with any other of the foster’s dogs or cats. She would do best with older children. If you think you could give this sweet chi a great home please fill out an application.
Adoption fee is $300
