My name is Daisy and I’m about 1 year old and weigh 9 pounds. I came to the rescue as an owner surrender from one of our veterinarians. I had two broken front legs from jumping out of an SUV at a drive-thru. My people could not afford the surgery to fix them, so they asked to put me to sleep. The vet thought I was way too young and sweet to be put to sleep, took me as a surrender, and reached out to Arizona Chihuahua Rescue.
I have spent about three months at my foster mom’s house. I’m a little shy once I meet you but I will soon be curled up in your lap. I have lived with big dogs, little dogs, and a desert tortoise! My old family had a cat and told my foster mom that I liked to play with the cat…I’m about the same size as one. I like children, but since I have had broken legs, I would probably do best in a house with older or respectful children.
I am still young and do puppy things like not listening and thinking it’s time to play. So if you don’t want me to do something when I get older, don’t let me do it now! I do love to go for walks, short ones for now because the bones still need to get stronger, and I walk very nicely on a leash. I also like car rides, but I wear a harness and seatbelt when riding with my foster mom so I can’t jump out of the car again. I haven’t mastered the dog door yet because I was too awkward with my front legs in splints to maneuver through the door but if I need to go potty, I sit by the door.
Foster mom told me she will be picky when finding my home because I deserve to be a spoiled girl and she wants to find me the exact right furever home for me.
