It will take only seconds for Sally to rocket into your arms and wiggle her way into your heart.
Sally was found wandering the streets of Salinas on a cold winter night. She was curled up under a bush shivering when an animal control officer approached and called for her. At the sound of a human voice, she barreled out of the bush and jumped straight into his large truck.
At the shelter she quickly won everyone's heart by heartily squeaking her toys and bouncing into the arms of anyone who invited her. Although this 3-year-old Chihuahua has a ton of heart and a lot of soul, she is looked over purely because of her breed.
Sally is a favorite for volunteer "slumber parties" because she's housebroken, quiet and is a grade A cuddler. She's extremely people-oriented and seeks out a warm lap and a loving voice wherever she can find one. Sally is very polite and although energetic, she settles down very quickly and will lay down with her front legs crossed like a prim and proper lady. At night, Sally is crate trained but would love to share a warm bed with her human and will mold herself to you while you sleep if given the chance.
Have a hard time bending over? No problem. Sally will literally rocket herself into your arms. She would make a perfect lap dog for someone looking for a quiet and devoted companion.
Although Sally is the ultimate people dog, she does not do well with other dogs or
She is obedient on leash and very well-mannered in the home. You can tell her intelligence level is high as she will sit by the door when she wants to go out as well as communicate clearly when she's hungry or thirsty by running to her bowl or the sink.
She would fit perfect with a small family, a couple or an only person, but please no children under 10.
Looking for a lap dog that is easy to handle, full of personality and cuddles like no other? Sally is all of that and more! You will remember the day when you met Sally.
