Chihuahua / Terrier / Mixed (long coat) : : Female (spayed) : : Baby : : Small
Alina and Ava arrived in NY on a dark and stormy night, 7 weeks old and barely 1 pound each! They affectionately become known as our Magical Midnight puppies! We were told they were originally from a chihuahua breeder dabbling in some designer breeds - so we are not sure of their breed mix. They have soft coats and long legs. All we know is that they are adorable! now, finally after a few months of gaining weight and getting medically ready - our girls are ready to find their new homes!
Alina & Ava are both incredibly sweet and affectionate. They are smart little girls too - just recently learning stairs, both up and down! They are going outside with the other dogs in their foster home now too. They have a fully fenced yard in their foster home so there has not been an introduction to a leash yet. They are used to using potty pads so housetraining will be left up to their new families. They do well in a crate as long as they are together. There will likely be some adjustment time when they are first separated (yes we are separating them and will NOT adopt them out together) so please be prepared. They love to play and wrestle with each other and another small, playful dog in their new home would be nice but not required. Both the girls have really loud high pitched barks so apartments are not going to be considered. Cats in their new home will be fine. Because of their tiny size, no large dogs and only older, respectful kids.
Alina is the brave pup, always wanting to try things first and leading the duo to playful antics! She loves to be held and kisses kisses kisses whoever is holding her! She is bossy with the other dogs in her home - trying to gain some respect we think - but she is quick to know her place too. Alina has wild and crazy hair and no matter how many times her foster mom brushes her coat, it looks like a wild and cray mop in no time! We call her Pig Pen! She gets very excited when it's meal time or treat time. Alina is always up for some wrestling with her sister when she isn't trying to get extra lap time from her foster mom.
Alina is spayed, up to date on vaccines, microchipped and flea/worm treated. Her adoption fee is $450
