Update on Disco, July 2022: Disco is a spunky, playful, mischievous, affectionate and smart little 5-pound chihuahua. She has some stranger danger and will need a family patient enough to allow her to learn to trust them (a day or two). She loves to play with other dogs, chew bones bigger than herself, chase squeaky toys, and cuddle with her humans. Disco is a spicy little girl who brings much laughter and joy to her foster home; but she deserves a home of her very own!

Disco (sister to Indie and Hip-Hop) is a silly, mischievous, chihuahua puppy who came to us back in July (2021) at five weeks old. Her and her siblings were taken away from their mother prematurely, placed in a kennel without access to food or water, and then dumped outside of a shopping plaza in the worst of the summer heat. Fortunately, a kind onlooker stepped in, scooped them up and networked them to our rescue. These puppies couldn’t eat hard food and wouldn’t lap gruel when they first arrived, a clear indication that they hadn’t even begun the weaning process. Not to mention, they were filthy and covered in fleas. After just a few weeks in a good foster home, these chihuahuas were brought up to speed and made a complete turn-around in condition. They were clean, parasite, and flea free. They were also hearty eaters, fully transitioned to kibble. Their story shows that sometimes all these dogs need is a little TLC. Now, they are ready for homes and have been waiting for them for quite some time (August).

Disco is as sassy as they come! She loves other dogs, even likes cats, and must go to a home with a playful four-legged companion of some sort. Since she is still young and learning, potential adopters should be prepared for an energetic, imperfect new addition to their home. She is not for someone looking to adopt a “calm” dog, or a dog that is “already trained”. In foster care, Disco is perfecting potty training, kennel training, and other basic boundaries. She is also working on her social skills and leash skills. She is a work in progress, and we are looking for someone to take over the work we’ve already started with her. She needs a patient, confident leader who can show her the way.
