Hi there! My name is Sabine. My foster describes me as a sweet soul who takes a little while to feel safe with new people because I've been through a lot of change in the last couple of years. But if you are a Chihuahua lover who can give me time to feel safe, I will give you LOVE like you never knew before. Kisses, snuggles, lap warming — I've got all that and more to give you!

A senior girl, I am housebroken; I’ll let you know I need to go out by sniffing and spinning in circles, but I would appreciate a regular routine. My leash manners and car riding skills are also pretty good. I do best in a harness. I love my crate and do well in it when left alone, but I like to sleep near my people if you'll let me. If allowed, I will also sleep in the bed with you, burrowed under the covers in pure Chihuahua bliss. Also, I co-exist well with other dogs and, when I am in the mood, I like a good squeaky toy.


Being a little lady, I am wary around new people (especially men) and may snap if I feel threatened, but this is just a trust issue. Anyone who is familiar with typical Chi behavior will give me time to become comfortable and feel safe. For this reason, small children are not a good fit. I prefer a calm house, so older kids work well for me.
