Mitzi is an 8 month old, 8 lb Chihuahua/Rat Terrier mix. Foster mom says that Mitzi is the sweetest little girl! She loves everyone she meets, including kids, and loves to play with the other dogs in her foster home. She likes to play with squeaky toys and will even fetch, chew on antlers and give "high-fives." She is a little afraid of the cat, but does not bother her. She still needs work walking on a leash, but is doing much better with a harness. She wants to be with her people and sleeps under the covers snuggled up next to you. She needs a family that will be patient with her potty training. She gets distracted by any noise or movement when outside and does not like to be outside alone. The foster has been taking her outside on a leash to keep her from running back in the house via the doggy door. She will become more comfortable once she is in a safe environment in her furever home. Mitzi is crated during the day while the fosters are at work, only because she is still a puppy and likes to chew on things she finds laying around. She doesn't potty in her crate and has the run of the house the rest of the time. Mitzi will be an excellent pet for an active, loving family.
