Sex: Female

To meet BARBIE and be considered for adoption you must first submit an ADOPTION APPLICATION: BARBIE is a 3 year old, 9.2 pound Min Pin-Chihuahua mix who came to us from a shelter LOCATION: Pensacola FL NEEDS: Fenced yard, patient owner and a dog buddy. Barbie is beautiful and sweet but is still somewhat skittish. We believe someone did not treat her well. She will come and sit with you but she does not like to be picked up and will nip at you when you try. Her foster mom has been working with her and she is improving the more she is handled, but will need somebody to continue to work with her. She does well with positive reinforcement and loves getting treats from her foster dad. Barbie also loves attention and will come up on the big bed at night to get belly rubs and pets, but if you reach for her with both hands she's gone! There is something about that two-handed move that really scares her. Barbie gets along well with all of the dogs in her foster home. She needs to have a home with another small dog in her home for company. Another little dog helps her feel safe. She has not been around cats that we are aware of. She should not go to a home with children. Barbie is working on potty training and doing well. She doesn't like walking on a leash and should have a fenced yard because if she gets loose it's going to be hard to catch her! At night she sleeps in the bed with her foster family and the other dogs. Barbie has been to the vet for a wellness check, is up to date on shots, spayed, fecal tested, heartworm negative, has had a 12-month ProHeart heartworm prevention shot, and is microchipped with a lifetime registration. She is a beautiful little dog looking for the right person or family to show her how to love! *We are located in Pensacola Florida.
