My name is Gazelle, and believe it or not, as cute and sweet as I am, I was going to be euthanized by my ‘breeder’ as I was no longer good enough for production. They claim I’m 4 and a half, but according to Sophie, I’m more like 6 years old. My teeth are so full of tartar, I may lose a lot of them. I delivered my last litter 6 weeks ago and was already I was taken away from my pups. Poor pups who will be sold for hundreds of dollars….. We live in a sad world.
However, I was rescued and brought to Sophie’s Dog Adoption. I am paper-trained but also go outside, I am very mellow, a little skittish but really coming out of my shell as there are many dogs for me to learn from. I have been de-barked, so the neighbours won’t hear me, which makes me a good candidate for apartment living. It seems all my pups are de-barked at birth, just for that reason. To sell to apartment people.. Sad, but real!
I am very good with other dogs, would be good with kids as I am very tolerant of manipulation. So far, I have not growled, snapped, showed any teeth or anything of the sort.
I am supposed to be a ‘pure Chihuahua’, but it looks like I may have some Miniature Pinscher. Not sure, but could be. Either way, I am adorable with my big ears and curly tail!
