#12273 Remembering Darla 2022

Completed
Small-size, Female, Senior Chihuahua,

Hi! My name is Remembering Darla I'm named in honor of all the homeless pets waiting for forever homes in animal shelters and those who didn't make it out. I'm guessed to be a Chi mix and guessed to be about 10 years young. I'm a sweet girl and I currently weigh 7lbs. I made my way north on 9/23 in search of a new family.

My foster says that I’m an absolute delight! She recently realized how much I love my real name, Megan. My face lights up because I can’t believe she knows my name! I am on my best behavior in my kennel and always sleep through the night. I am potty trained and I love to be near my human. I rarely show off my voice unless I see or hear another dog or I get excited while playing. Recently, I showed my foster mom how much I love her by getting a little overprotective of her around other dogs. She told me that’s not okay but now she thinks I may need to be in a home without any other dogs. But I love all humans! I can be a playful pup or a sleepy pup depending on what you want from me. I would love someone who could stay home with me most of the time and let me cuddle next to them all day. Look how cute I am!?

Will you be my furever family? If so apply today! I won't be available for long!

This dog tested positive for heartworm disease before arriving to the rescue. The disease was treated while in foster care. Heartworm disease is transmitted to a dog through a bite from an infected mosquito. With monthly preventatives, the disease is completely preventable.

Remembering Darla 2022 is up-to-date on her vaccinations and has been spayed. She is best in a home without dogs. Remembering Darla 2022 is currently being fostered in Gaithersburg , 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 Ashland, VA 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 Ashland.

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.
