#11868 Big Aggie (Feegles Pups Mom)

Adoptable
Small-size, Female, Adult Chihuahua,

Big Aggie is a 12-15 pound Chihuahua Mix. She had her babies here, and now that they have been adopted, she is getting ready to find her forever home too! She is an absolute sweetheart who loves to snuggle in laps and under the covers, give lots of kisses, and play with anyone that’s interested. She can be very vocal when strangers come to the house, but she warms up very quickly. Usually by the time she reaches the stranger she just wants to be pet. She does well with dogs, and did well when introduced to an indoor cat (hasn’t lived with one yet to my knowledge). She loves sitting outside and watching for wildlife. She will chase birds and squirrels. She doesn’t seem to be a big fan of children, and tends to bark when she sees the neighbor kids outside, so would likely do best in a home without kids. She would love to have a 4-legged playmate though.

So far she has done well with house training. She may need reinforcement in a new environment. She walks pretty well on a leash and isn’t reactive, but could use some general loose leash walking training.

The name Big Aggie comes from Terry Pratchett's Discworld series, specifically the book: Wee Free Men. The Nac Mac Feegle are a type of fairy, about 6 inches tall, with red hair, blue skin, and red tattoos. The society is similar to bees, in that there is one female born per generation, and she will be the Kelda (ruler). They believe that they are already dead, and are in a sort of paradise afterlife where they are free to do whatever they want. This usually involves fighting, drinking, and stealing (but in a lovable way). Big Aggie is the Kelda of the main clan of Nac Mac Feegle in the book Wee Free Men.

Big Aggie (Feegles Pups Mom) is up-to-date on her vaccinations and has not yet been spayed. Big Aggie (Feegles Pups Mom) is currently being fostered in Baltimore, MD.

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.
