Sobie is a precious 8-9 year old, 8.4 pound Chihuahua who came to us under some sad and scary circumstances. Her owner had died and one of his family members had taken her in. For whatever reason she was not allowed in the house very often and most recently was staying outside all day in the awful heat. A neighbor who was aware of her plight reached out to the people who had her and they agreed to surrender her. Precious little Sobie was timid and unsure when she first came in, but she is coming out of her shell now. She is treat/food motivated, so the way to her heart is with a tasty snack! Sobie is a very sweet, laid back girl who loves snuggling and follows her person around the house. She is very quiet and doesn't require much in the way of attention. She likes to be in a lap, but is also happy to curl up in a soft fluffy dog bed for hours on end. Sobie is fine being picked up but she tenses up until she knows she is being held securely. She enjoys being petted and gently brushed. Sobie prefers to sleep in the bed with her person. She must have slept with her prior owner because that closeness at night is something she craves. Sobie does not seem to be bothered by much of anything, but a household without a lot of activity would suit her best. She does well with smaller, calm dogs and at times watches her foster brother like she's trying to figure out how to play with him. She has not been around cats since we have had her and we don't think a home with kids is a good fit. Sobie is being treated for a severe ear infection and seems to be deaf, but looks for visual cues and knows when to go out if prompted or if the door is opened. She prefers someone go outside with her and should never be outside unsupervised due to her size and lack of hearing. When outside she does her business and wants to come back in right away. She has not had any accidents in the house at all. Sobie is learning to walk on a leash and is gaining strength on her walks. Her foster family has a doggie stroller and when she gets tired she likes to ride in it. She also loves car rides. She has a preferred harness, however she does not like a collar. Sobie has been to the vet for a wellness check, is up to date on shots, fecal tested, heartworm negative, has had a 12-month ProHeart heartworm prevention shot, and is microchipped with a lifetime registration. Her spay and a dental are scheduled at one of our vets soon and are covered by the rescue.
