About Chiquita

Adoption Fee: $75
Fox Terrier
Age: Adult
Sex: Female

FOSTER LOCATION: Boise, ID Sweet little Chiquita is a 5 year old Toy Fox terrier who came back to Fuzzy Pawz after her owner who adopted her from us 18 months ago could no longer properly care for her due to his health problems. When she originally came to Fuzzy Pawz from a local shelter she required hip surgery on her back right hip which was successful but she still has a tendency to favor that side and holds her right rear leg up at times. But otherwise she runs and plays and even jumps with no problems, holding her leg up is a result of habit and not due to any lingering problems. All of her vaccinations have been updated. Chiquita can be a little shy and timid when she first meets people but is getting better. She does bond quickly with a person once she picks someone and does not like to let that person get our of her sight. She comes when called and knows basic commands but they need to be reinforced as she is a little rusty on them. Walking her is a dream as she walks right beside you and you almost forget that you are walking her except for the leash you are holding. She is fine with kids, cats and other dogs. Her foster home has dogs and she is fine with them but does show signs of jealousy at times when she is sitting in a lap and one of the other dogs' approaches. She plays well with the smaller dog in her foster home so a home with another small dog would work well once they are introduced and adjust to each other. However she is not as comfortable with larger dogs. Chiquita would also be fine as an only dog as she was in her former home as long as she gets some play time and walks to keep her active and content. She is crate trained and house trained but if given the choice would prefer to sleep in the bed with her owner. She can even multi task as she has been seen scratching behind her ear with a back leg while licking her front paws clean all at the same time. This little girl is smart as a whip, loyal and very alert and aware of her surroundings and deserves a loving forever home. If you are looking for a little girl to keep you company for many years to come Chiquita is your girl; just fill out an application: http://fuzzypawzrescue.com/adopt/adoption-application-2/ and we'll get back to you. Chiquita is spayed, vaccinated and microchipped There is a $75 adoption fee for her
