WHMP Dakin Pioneer Valley Humane Society Pet of the Week

Chi Chi is a Chihuahua/Daschund mix,  6 year old spayed female.  Here’s her story:  I am nervous in the kennel environment but in a loving home I am happy, playful, and active.  A slow and gentle approach would help me a lot. I came to Dakin with my pups and now it is my time to find a loving home. I would enjoy a home that will play with me, take me for walks and hikes, and enjoy a quiet evening snuggling up together. I am currently living with a foster family that loves me very much, but I would be happier in a home with no other dogs. I will be a loyal, constant companion to my new family. I am smart, and learn fast. I love to please and to stay right by you. If you’d like to meet me, please ask a Dakin adoption counselor to arrange for you speak to the foster family or plan for a visit with me at Dakin.
