Dachshund/Chihuahua mix

Not available for adoption

Charlotte is a very lovable girl. She was picked up as a stray shortly before arriving with BDRA. Charlotte arrived malnourished and in poor health. She had to fight for every scrap of food on the streets and it showed. When she arrived at her foster home (which consists of up to eight dogs) she growled at all of them at one time or another. She has also snapped at three of them. After being with them a couple months she settled in and now will play with the other dogs. She was a very scared little girl but now her relief at being loved and cared for shows through. She is still slightly food aggressive and that may be due to what she endured while living on the street. She is housebroken and leash trained. She will also use a wee pad if necessary. When new fosters are introduced she accepts them readily and has even started playing with some of them within days.

Charlotte is diabetic and it is under control with the least expensive insulin. She has cataracts and is developing glaucoma. Her eyes are being treated by drops. She loves to snuggle and be under the blankets and wants to be as close to her human as possible. She would make a very good companion for a person or couple with one or no other pets. She would do fine with other small dogs but you would have to have patience with her as she learns to feel safe with them. She is good with younger children. She loves cats! She has taught herself how to climb up and down stairs and is a very bright girl! Her favorite thing to do is lay in your arms like a baby and have her belly rubbed, she could do that for hours!

Charlotte is forever in our hearts.
