Meet Electron, AKA Miss Ellie! Ellie is a sassy princess who would love to be the center of your world!

Update 8/16/22

Ellie has been doing great since her cataract surgery, and is really enjoying life now that she has her vision again! She is such a sassy and spunky princess and wants nothing more than to be spoiled and the center of attention. She loves to snuggle, loves to play and loves snack-time. She is such an easy going girl, and loves to be with her favorite person. She is very good about getting her eye drops in the morning, and wants nothing more than to be your best friend. She is such a sweetheart and would love to snuggle you all day.
She was recently diagnosed with Grade 3/4 luxating patellas but is not letting it slow her down. She is currently taking some joint supplements and may have issues in the future, but no medical intervention is recommended at this time.


Ellie had congenital cataracts and because of her former visual impairments was a very nervous and skittish girl. She recently underwent cataract surgery and can now see again. She has begun to come out of her shell and is so excited to explore the world! Because of her surgery she will require topical eye drops and routine monitoring with an ophthalmologist for the rest of her life.

She is such a sweetheart and loves to be with her people. She is a typical Chihuahua, and can sometimes react when startled, and would do best in a home without young children. She loves to snuggle, loves to play fetch, and LOVES meals and snacks! She is starting to learn how to navigate and is enjoying taking walks.

We are working on potty training and she is getting better every day. She is starting to go outside on command, and mostly uses pee pads when indoors.

Ellie is such an amazing girl looking to be spoiled and pampered all day!
