Age: Adult (almost 8 years)
FOSTER LOCATION: Twin Falls, ID
Mary is a 1 1/2 year old female chihuahua/terrier mix. She came all the way from Texas from a horrible hoarding case and spent 3 months in the shelter adjusting and making sure her health was tip top. When she was healthy and ready to go she was taken out of the shelter and placed into a Fuzzy Pawz Rescue foster home.
Where we very quickly realized that she didn’t let her past life get her down as she is just an absolute doll! Despite coming from a hoarder you would never realize it as she is very well adjusted and just a happy girl!
Mary loves to sleep under covers or pillows with her foster family and loves, loves, loves to be pet especially her long ears & just learning tummy rubs are good of course. She has the cutest skip hop she does when her foster family comes home for the day. She has good manners and waits to be invited onto beds & furniture.
Mary walks well on a leash and rides great in a car. She knows sit & stay and out now, and is learning roll over; she works for treats. No aggressive behavior, she will bark at a stranger that comes to house until reassured its ok. Doesn't bark at people passing by or while on walks. Gets cold easily, probably due to coming from warmer climate, she likes to wear warm doggie jackets.
Mary is only a year old and so would love to have another dog to play with. The current foster mom has 2 dogs that she runs around with all day....racing in the house and backyard. She is housetrained and crate trained and knows how to operate a doggie door.
Mary can be a bit shy with strangers but she just needs a few to get to know you. Mary would do better in a household with teenage children who are old enough to know that she needs time to warm up a bit.
She is a beautiful girl and has the most endearing smile and would love to have a forever family to call her own!
Mary is already spayed and up to date on all her immunizations. She is also micro-chipped.
