Shelter Staff made the following comments about this animal:
10/08/17 14:20 Creme stands out among our Chihuahuas as having more easygoing energy. Having just met the assessor, she was sweetly, quietly affectionate, seeking to be picked up and giving kisses without being overly needy. Even when startled with petting when her back was to the assessor, she quickly started wagging her tail in friendly response. She was very tolerant of having her teeth and ears checked and her feet touched--areas of the body some dogs object to having handled. She might be one of these little dogs who doesn't mind indulging her human's desire to dress her up now and then. Her nails were overgrown when we met her, a suggestion she may not have gotten all the love she so deserves in her previous life. She is likely to bond easily with her adopter and remain social with strangers human and canine. Creme was too dainty and polite to eat during her assessment so we couldn't assess well for food guarding, but she did not show interest in guarding from the other dogs in the room. 12 is no so old for a dog Creme's size--she is still lively without being exhaustingly energetic. She tapdanced around for attention during her assessment. Snuggle and fall in love with this girl! CJB
