#11841 Toucan

Small-size, Female, Senior Chihuahua,

Hi! My name is Toucan and I’m a female chi mix and I weigh about 10 lbs. I am about 7 years old and I came to OPH with my babies. I am a little timid and sometimes a little growly when I first meet someone but it's only because I'm scared. I like to be held and carried around and to sit in your lap once I am comfortable with you. I'm a good snuggler and if you let me sleep in the bed with you, I will burrow under the covers and snuggle up beside you. I'm ok with other dogs as long as they aren't looking for a playmate. I really don't care to interact with them. In fact, I tend to get somewhat annoyed if other dogs bother me. I am happy to spend my time just with my special person. I just need someone who is going to be gentle with me and treat me like the special girl I am. I would probably be happiest in a home with someone who will be with me most of the time and give me lots of attention. It would be a plus if I am the only dog or any other animals in the house are ok with me being aloof.
I’m in search of my new home. Is that with you? If so apply today. I won’t be available for long!

Toucan is up-to-date on her vaccinations and has been spayed. Toucan is currently being fostered in King William, VA.

All adult dogs, cats, and kittens are altered prior to adoption. Puppies too young to be altered at the time of adoption must be brought to our partner vet in Davidsonville, MD for spay or neuter paid for by Operation Paws for Homes by 6 months of age. Adopters may choose to have the procedure done at their own vet before 6 months of age and be reimbursed the amount that the rescue would pay our partner vet in Davidsonville.

This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
