6 year old female Chihuahua mix, about 7 pounds. Ky was formally Pearl who was adopted out as a puppy. Hi! My name is Ky! I have some special needs but let me introduce myself first! I love my people. I want all of the attention that you can give me! I also love giving kisses and hugs. My favorite places to be are on the back of the couch, curled up under a blanket, or laying in the sun! The occasional toy is good fun too! I'm currently being fostered with another small dog and a cat, I mostly ignore the cat, but I have tried to play with the dog on rare occasions! I can be a bit growly when the dog gets too close to my stuff, but it is mine after all! I'm also good with kids, but only if they know how to treat me respectfully and move carefully so I don't get scared. Older children would be preferred. I'm really just a happy and sweet little girl looking for a home. Unfortunately, I have narrowing discs in my spine that make me very sensitive to certain things like being picked up or squatting. I can also be a bit timid, especially around new people, and I may scream out and submissive pee in anticipation of pain. Currently, I am on pain meds that help me feel normal and let me do zoomies pain free! These will need to be given intermittently for a while, and my adopters will need to provide me with continued vet care for my condition. It takes a while to gain my trust, and certain actions like putting on my leash or my harness can make me feel tense and scared. Once you do gain my trust I will feel much more at ease. I'm very adjusted to my foster home now but it can take some time before I settle in. The more I trust you, the better I will get, and the sooner I will blossom into the wonderful pup that I truly am! All that I ask is that my adopter is willing to give me lots of time, care, and love, because I really am a special little girl and my foster mom says that I deserve the best of the best! Adoption contract and fee applies. All adoptable dogs can be met at adoption events hosted every weekend. For a list of scheduled events go to: https://www.facebook.com/SmidgetRescue/events . Smidget Rescue is not a shelter, and dogs cannot be seen at the Rescue location. All dogs are fostered throughout the Puget Sound area and are brought to the events where they can be met by prospective adopters. Additional pictures of adoptable dogs can be seen at: https://www.facebook.com/SmidgetRescue/photos_stream?tab=photos_albums. All adoptable dogs are spayed or neutered at 6 months of age or older, and always before being placed in their new homes. APPLICATIONS CAN BE OBTAINED BY EMAIL ONLY. Adoption process includes application, meet & greet, home visit and reference check. Email Jamie at email@example.com or click on the CONTACT link on this page. Notice: We do not ship dogs out of state. If you live within a five-hour radius of Seattle, WA, (such as Portland, Vancouver B.C., etc.), we can arrange for a home visit. If your home seems like a great fit for the dog you would like to adopt, you must then drive to meet the dog at one of our weekend events or at the fosters home.
