I know, I’m a stunner, it’s hard to look away! I’m definitely a breed apart: with the teeth of a shih tzu, the front legs and long body of a basset hound, and the back legs of a beagle. What a combo! (I’m actually part Chiuhauhau and part Beagle, and almost six and a half years old.)
My personality is a real mixed bag too. On the one hand, I’m an affectionate little snuggle bug who loves nothing more than kissing and cuddling with any human who’s handy. On the other hand, I can also be a bit of a diva and tend to almost stamp my feet if I don’t get what the attention I want and deserve!
When I first came to the BC SPCA, I was a bit obese but since I’ve been in foster care, I’ve slimmed down quite a bit, though I still have a little way to go before reaching my ideal weight. (Don’t we all, ladies?!)
I also had a great deal of pain before, as my ears were badly infected. After some medical attention, it’s getting a lot better. But because I had to deal with this pain and people touching my ears to heal them, I’m super sensitive and have a profound dislike of having any painful area of my body touched. So, even though I’m super affectionate, it’s probably best if I don’t live with children, as they may not read my warning signs.
I’m currently sharing a home with two other small dogs and two cats, and we all get along great, as long as we respect each other’s space. So I’d do well with another wee pup about my size, or a dog-savvy cat, as long as they don’t get up in my business too much.
If you do take me home, be prepared for stares: people love to check me out. Yes, I may be funny looking, but I’ll be sure to love you up and put a smile on your face every single day. To meet me (and to see if you measure up to my standards!) please contact the SPCA today.
