Nona – Adoption Pending!!
born ~October 2013
Look no further for your next furry friend because Nona is here! Nona is an 8lb Chihuahua mix who is about 4 years old. She is a well-mannered small dog that can fit into pretty much anyone’s home!
When Nona gets super excited, she dances on her back legs and does the famous chihuahua double paw. You know, the one where they take their two paws, wave at you, melt your heart and hypnotize you into giving them anything they want. Yes, that one. But don’t worry, she’s worth giving all the treats in the world because she comes potty trained and crate trained! If she needs to go outside she’ll pace, so it’s important to pay attention, but she sleeps through the night with no accidents and she loves hanging out in her crate when she wants to nap.
So what’s the downfall for this little pooch? Just a little independent when it comes to her space. If Nona is sleeping, it’s best to keep it that way – she can get a little growly. But as long as she’s in a household that can respect her space, she’s a catch! While she enjoys cuddles and pets, she isn’t needy and is fine lying on the couch alone. Though she hasn’t been around children, she would probably be fine if they aren’t rambunctious. Those ones might scare her a little so kids who are old enough to mellow out are probably more her style.
There are 3 other dogs that live with Nona; one is her size and the others are a bit larger. Everyone lives peacefully together but, like with people, Nona can be a bit of a diva if they don’t respect her space. Now that she is comfortable in her foster home, she’s started initiating play! She loves small dogs but is still a bit intimidated by larger dogs. Structured introductions aren’t needed and she’d be fine at the (small) dog park.
Nona is a very submissive pup when it comes to new people. If you approach her quickly, she will cower to the ground. Once she bonds, however, she loves following you around! Overall, she’s a laidback low energy pup who will mind her own business when you’re busy doing something more (or less) important than showering her with pets and kisses. The only time she really barks is if she hears a noise or another dog bark. Retreating to her crate is her location of choice.
If you’re looking for a low maintenance ankle biter (just kidding! Calm down! She doesn’t bite!!!), Nona is perfect. All she needs is a couple short potty walks or a fenced yard where she can do her business and she’s good to go! Now, if you want to go on longer walks, she’s all about it, but the point is, a warm, loving, calmer household is the perfect place for Nona and she wants to find it sooner than later!
