About Nessy

Adoption Fee: $250
Chihuahua
Age: Senior
Sex: Female

Meet Nessy! This little nugget weighs just under 6 lbs and is about 13 years old. She came to us after her owner surrendered her to a local animal control for unknown reasons. Nessy is a sweet girl who wants love, but doesn't seem to know how to accept it. She hasn't been defensive or nippy, but she is nervous and jumpy with handling. She needs a patent adopter who will take their time, go slow with her, and show her what it means to be a loved and cherished pet. She is crate trained and is doing well with potting outside, but does occasionally have an accident. She gets along with the other dogs in her foster home (between 3-50 lbs), but doesn't engage in play. She does have some allergies we are working on managing. We suspect it is food related, so she has been switched to a raw diet. We are also limiting her to a single protein source/ limited ingredient treats along with giving her routine medicated baths. Please be prepared to be disciplined about what she eats and to invest some money into her diet, as she will not be a good candidate for cheap dog foods. Her favorite hobbies are napping and begging for food. Is she your spirit animal? Apply to adopt today! Nessy's adoption donation of $250 helps cover the cost of her medical care. Nessy is current on rabies and DHPP vaccines, she is negative for heartworm and fecal parasites and was treated for Lymes. She is microchipped and has had full senior bloodwork, urine testingm and a complete dental cleaning. Adopters must live within a 1.5 hour driving time from Romeoville, IL to be considered for adoption. Personal references and home visit required.
