Annie Oakley (ID# 1775267) is a 2 year old, female brown brindle & white Smooth Coated Chihuahua mix 26 pds. This little gal may be something other than Chihuahua but she’s a cutie pie no matter her breed.
Annie Oakley can be a bit of a shy gal initially and perhaps more so with new men. She’s looking for someone that has patience to give her time to trust and warm up. It won’t take long with just a little effort. Then you will be rewarded with a sweet energetic playful best friend quick to shower you with kisses. She loves to run zoomies in a yard then likes to chill at your feet or next to you on a couch/bench.
She can’t be left unattended in a yard—she can climb an 8 ft wall. So if you can’t be with her she will need to be left inside or crated. With her loving nature and great size why would you even think of leaving her alone outside? It seems someone in her past didn’t allow her to be a lap dog and may have used harsh methods to get the point across. With a little consistent encouragement she’s just starting to consider jumping in a lap. She will “sit” and give a very slow gentle pat in your palm (a low five) rather than shake paws.
She loves tennis balls and is quite entertaining to watch her chase, pounce and play with her toy. She has some spunk and energy. She enjoys taking walks on leash and is quite good. Our staff says Annie Oakley will be good with children 12 or over. Sometimes children move a bit too fast and roughly for a smaller dog like Annie Oakley. So far Annie’s been uncomfortable around other dogs so she may prefer to be your only companion. If you have other companions bring them in along with the entire family to meet this energetic yet shier cutie so we can help ensure everyone is happy. Annie Oakley is waiting for her forever home and person at our Eastside shelter, 8920 Lomas Blvd NE.
