Tri-County Animal Rescue Pet of the Week is this beautiful Chihuahua/Dachshund mix named Laika. This little girl is 6 months old and weigh about 10 pounds. Laika has a lovely tan/white coat. The grooming for Laika is very simple…bath and brushing. She will stay small as an adult. Laika is spayed, current on vaccines and micro-chipped. Come on out…we will be looking for you.
Chihuahuas are comical, entertaining, and loyal little dogs. They are absolutely brimming with personality – often a quirky and eccentric personality unmatched by any other breed. Chihuahuas do seem to recognize and prefer their own breed, so it's a great idea to keep two of them. They keep each other company when you're gone, they play together, clean each other's ears (Chihuahuas can be obsessive ear-lickers!), and keep each other warm by snuggling together.
Chihuahuas adore warmth! They will seek out the tiniest sunspot in which to bask, and they tunnel under blankets and towels. You have to be careful whenever you sit down on your sofa or bed, as there could be a Chihuahua tucked under there!
If you want a dog that: is small and easy to carry, comes in several different coats and colors, is oh-so-funny and entertaining in quirky ways, is very loyal, travels well, doesn't need much exercise, LOVES warm sunny climates, usually has a long lifespan…..then a Chihuahua may be right for you!
If you are looking for an addition to your family, please come out and meet our pets this weekend.
