Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat) : : Female : : Senior : : Small
I would love you more than you can imagine.
Sweet as Apple Pie!
Rosie is a 12 pound, 15 year old Chihuahua mix. Rosie aka, Rosie-Posie, Grandma Rose, Rosie-Girl, Rosita is the definition of cute companion pup! She is good natured, super healthy, gentle, intelligent, loving and affectionate. And, as her photos show, she is exceptionally photogenic!
She loves kids and being around groups of people, especially when everyone is petting her. While she LOVES her people, Rosie is independent enough to leave alone when needed. She is a great apartment pup! Rosie is pad trained, but will also let you know when it is time to go out.
Rosie enjoys relaxing in the sun, snuggling under her blanket, taking short walks on leash and in stroller, going on driving adventures (great co-pilot), exploring nature, parks. While she is beyond her more active years, Rosie still likes adventures and will still wag her tail, tap her paws, and howl with excitement!
Rosie requires little grooming and has learned to stay in the tub when she's getting bathed. She needs to be dried with a hairdryer and prefers low-heat settings. It's also important to clean all areas of her body to prevent skin infections.
Because her vision is not what it used to be, Rosie will benefit from a predictable space, especially at night. She sleeps well in her crate with an ex-pen and pads to help her know where she is when it gets dark and shadowy.
Prior to adoption, all dogs are spayed/neutered, tested for heartworm, vaccinated (including rabies, if age appropriate) and microchipped.
