Meet Wendy! Wendy is an 11 yr old chihuahua who weighs about 12 lbs. Wendy came to us from Southern Illinois and tested positive for heartworm. She has been through her treatment. She is a timid, scared dog who we believe was mistreated in her previous life. She needs an adopter who will allow her to build her trust on her terms. Wendy doesn't have a mean bone in her body, but she can be fearful with handling. She has found a 'safe zone' in her current foster and spends most of the time in her bed there. As time goes and she gets more comfortable she has slowly ventured out to explore, but it still hasn't been more than about 10 feet from her safe zone. She has gotten comfortable in the fenced yard and loves to run and explore out there. She gets along with other dogs, but prefers dogs who don't try to play with her as she gets scared. She is a loving, sweet dog who just needs that special person who will love and care for her unconditionally. Wendy's adoption fee of $200 helps cover the cost of her vet care and heartworm treatment. Application, reference checks, and home visit required. Adopters must live 1.5 hours driving distance from Romeoville, IL. For more information on adopting, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are interested in adopting, please complete an adoption application, which can be found on our website at www.perfectpooches.org under the Adoption Process tab. All dogs are spayed/neutered, current on vaccines, heartworm tested (age appropriate), fecal tested and/or dewormed, and microchipped.
