Female, 1 year, chihuahua X, 8 lbs
My name is Princess though my foster mom calls me Princess Penelope and I seem to be responding more to Penelope. I am a very affectionate 1 year old chihuahua that loves to be cuddled under the blankets when I am not playing with my foster mom.
I love to go for walks and my foster mom says I am very good on a leash! I definitely know what I am doing!
I am very timid with new people and new dogs but with a little patience I will be a great companion! I have had one accident in the house but have been using my dog door every other time and let my foster mom know when I need to go out! I am quite vocal and like to bark at new people because I get scared, but my foster mom is working on this with me.
I am very motivated by squeaky toys! Even more so than treats. I love to play with my toy donuts, and I am great at playing fetch. I let go of the toy easily and get so excited when it is thrown again. If I get scared with someone, I like to have my toy squeaked so I know you are a safe person.
I do like to guard my chews, toys, etc.; another thing my foster mom is working on with me! I am slowly getting used to my foster brother Brady as we have our differences! But at night I am totally fine with snuggling up to him. I do not like being picked up, but with time I am sure I will be more comfortable with this.
I would do best in a calm home with no children. I am very unsure of children. I require a very patient owner to help me get on the path to becoming a great companion!
Princess is being fostered in Calgary.
